Isn't that more an issue of the difficulty of finding big men who CAN run the floor, as opposed to a strategic decision by the coach? It seems to me if you asked any Big Ten head coach if he wanted his big men to run the floor more, he'd say "of course!" Beilein, I'm pretty sure, has told McGary he can run the floor as much as he wants when he gets here!
Even after reading Mitch's comments, I like where we stand right now. His comment about Duke's big men is spot on and I would think should play very significantly in his decision.
Only one decision to make big guy: Go Blue on Thursday!
