It's also quite a stretch to say he is a mediocre coach and not look at the circumstances (he took over a Michigan program that hadn't made the tournament in 10 years so his winning percentage is obviously going to be lower as he is basically building up from nothing, the number of guys leaving early for the draft is ridiculous for anyone not named Kentucky, the number of season ending injuries to our best players is also ridiculous with Mitch, DW, Irvin, and LeVert (twice) all being shut down for large portions of the four years prior to this year, etc..).
Also, did you even read that stat on Izzo? What does it matter that they were a 2 seed last year if they didn't win the B10 and were on the wrong end of the worst upset in tournament history? Yes, we had 2 different types of seasons, but can you imagine if Beilein would have been upset by a 15 seed, then signed possibly the best recruiting class in school history and went on to be either on the bubble or out of he tournament all together the next year?
|16 hours 4 min ago||Since Beilein has been at||
Since Beilein has been at Michigan, he has 2 B10 championships. In that same time, Wisconsin has the same amount of B10 titles, Izzo has 3, and Matta has 3. Maybe Beilein isn't mediocre, maybe it's just much tougher to win the B10 than it was when 10 years ago. Shit, Izzo won the big 10 four times in his first 6 years at MSU and has won it 3 times in his next 16 years. We have won the B10 more recently than anyone not named Indiana or Wisconsin. College basketball isn't what it used to be so maybe we should all get some perspective. Having success in the tournament is awesome and it's fun for fans, but a one-and-done tournament isn't the best way to judge a coach, especially now when 3-14 and 4-13 upsets are happening more often.

Other than OSU, Illinois, and maybe South Carolina or Virginia Tech, what games were so horrible that you thought we weren't a good team? Honest question.

They could bet your high school team at any time this year
|19 hours 57 min ago||We have been a good team all||
We have been a good team all year, we are just playing better he last couple weeks. We have, what, two bad games all year? Maybe three? Outside of the top 10 teams this year, there really isn't a lot of consistency from anyone
|20 hours 40 min ago||Before the season when I||
Before the season when I thought we were going to challenge for the B10 championship, this is the team I envisioned. Well, maybe Irvin playing a little better, but Wilson, Wagner, Robinson and MAAR all contributing along with our senior leaders. It's awesome to see this team come together at the right time. I'm so happy for Walton to take this team and lead them to what we've seen the last couple weeks

Why would it be very worrisome? Are you thinking Beilein will change his offense for a freshman getting limited minutes? Because if he doesn't, then Teske is perfect for Beilein's offense

So is shooting half as many free throws

Minnesota must have good free throw defense to cause our percentage to dip like that

He already had an NBA 5 when he got here in Peedi, who was here for his first two years. Then he had Morgan, who is playing professionally in Europe, who, combined with Horford, to help us win the B10 by three games. McGary played less than 20% of our games and was still drafted. Donnal is a miss, but now you've got Mo. You think that is somehow bad? 2 professional basketball players and another that will likely be there? Izzo has Payne, Davis, and.....who? Possibly Ward? Izzo has as many big man successes as Beilein. Why are you so horrible at making points?

Have you read these threads? Quite a few people expect us to be at that level
|6 days 13 hours ago||You just named two players||
You just named two players who were paid to come here. You have horrible points.
Also, he caught enough pick and rolls to average more points his freshman year, but that's the point with your feelings-it isn't backed up by any sort of factual or statistical reality. Feelings tend to always back up your existing narrative. Funny how that works
|6 days 13 hours ago||I haven't downvoted you once||
I haven't downvoted you once an Harbaugh and Beilein have nothing in common

This is nonsense. I guarantee you haven't watched a second of Michigan basketball if you think Wagner doesn't have grit or toughness
|6 days 15 hours ago||You are fucking awful and you||
You are fucking awful and you should feel bad for being so awful. Jordan Morgan averaged more points, rebounds, and steals his freshman year than he did his senior year. He also played more minutes and attempted more field goals and made more field goals. But please tell us all how great your basketball analyzing skills are where he had a nice senior year but wasn't good any of the other years
|6 days 15 hours ago||He's about to become the||
He's about to become the winningest coach in Michigan basketball history, so we are actually comparing him to the best era in UM basketball as well. It's crazy how such a shitty coach can be statistically the winningest coach in our history.

Strawman argument. Hyperbole about worst defense in the nation. Upvoting all your own posts. You're on fire

There isn't a whole lot of room on the bandwagon with me and my $7600 I'm going to get when Michigan wins the national championship

God Izzo is a whiny bitch. "Calling us whiny is unprofessional. Don't worry about me stomping around like a troll on the sidelines and complaining every chance I get."
|1 week 6 days ago||Are they really bipolar||
Are they really bipolar though? I see quite a few people saying that but they have played pretty consistently all year. They played awfully against Illinois and Ohio State, but other than that, they have looked good in most games. They have actually played pretty well since the players meeting before the Nebraska game last month.

Bryant rolls his ankle because he's clumsy. Foul on Wagner

SMU is ranked now, so that win is looking better for us. I wouldn't mind seeing us beat the pants off Indiana this weekend as they have quite cold as of late, losing 4 of 5. Shit, their last actual good win was NC back in November, so they are in the same boat as us

I'm guessing the joke was that they really didn't compete in the Platoffs, they just got their asses handed to them
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Can you imagine the backlash||
Can you imagine the backlash Beilein would get if he had 4 top 50 recruits in a single class (with two 5 stars) and then blamed them for being 14-10 after losing to MSU by 30?
Edit: I forgot to mention that a McDonald's All American would have also just left after his freshman year that he didn't play much in, probably being one of the reasons he left, and got drafted at the beginning of the 2nd round
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Lol. Half. Seven. Close||
Lol. Half. Seven. Close enough. In those seven games, they were 6-1. It's amazing the amount of excuse making Izzo gets from us considering they have looked awful for most of the season and they brought in on of the best recruiting classes in the country, probably MSU's best ever

Hyphenated last name. We got this one in the bag

Lol, you think people actually watch games though? There are more comments in fire Beilein threads than in any game thread. By far

I remember when everyone thought Shaka Smart would be a homerun hire. Hiring an A+ coach is extremely tough
|3 weeks 3 days ago||People keep saying that like||
People keep saying that like it mattered. Street linebackers wouldn't have gotten them any more scoreboard points, so I'm still confident. Harbaugh is light years ahead of Franklin so I can see us curb stomping them again next year
