BOO THIS MAN!
|2 weeks 5 days ago||It's Getting a Little Dusty in Here||
Gotta say, Beilein getting choked up in the interview after the game made me all I'M NOT CRYING YOU'RE CRYING.
And regarding what he said about how connected his players are, how much they love each other, it's so incredibly apparent watching them on the court. I can't get enough of Zak and Derrick's comaraderie and love.
Beilein's recruiting is definitely a little home-grown and he strikes out way more than any of us would like, but it has never been hard to cheer for the kids he puts in a Michigan uniform.
35 years of cheering for Michigan basketball and the Beilein years have been, maybe, my proudest. (Don't tell my 9 year-old self. That kid's a Fab 5 diehard.)
I'm so happy he's our coach. He's earned the right to go out on his own terms, whenever that may be, regardless of any particular season's quality or lack thereof. The winningest coach in Michigan history should get at least that.
Beilein über alles.

I know we're all talking football here, but right now, in basketball season, Tyus Battle really hurts.

That suit, though. All class.
Love that kid.

They also have the advantage of not having an in-state competitor for Ohio kids, which remains a pretty large talent pool. If you're a top recruit from Ohio and you want to stay close to home, OSU's got the edge in a big way. MSU and UM are in a forever battle for Michigan kids, essentially splitting them. Imagine if we were the only high major school in Michigan; our classes would probably look a lot more like OSU's.

I think this season's going to be a hell of a lot more fun than the one we were looking at when we had "expectations."
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Walton||
Yeah, man. You can't rag on Walton right now. Dude can barely walk without limping and yet he's leading the team in minutes and put the team on his back for much of that second half.
Walton's lack of burst is not intrinsic to him as a player. He had that burst just last year as a freshman.
Dude's a warrior.
A rather damaged one. But a warrior, just the same.

I was at the game. It was a thrill ride and a half. I have felt pretty lousy about certain wins in the past, but this is one of the few times I feel genuinely great about a loss.
Before the game, I watched VCU, which got pummelled by Nova last night, do some pummeling of their own against an Oregon team we squeaked by. I was expecting a brutal learning experience.
What we got instead was a game in November(!) where our incredibly young team learned that they could hang with one of the best, most experienced teams in the country.
In fact, they were a ludicrous block away from beating that team!
But teams learn more from losses, and losses keep 'em hungry. We have so much to grow from, and so much already there. This team needs some of Stauskas' swag in their step. They've earned it. I would have loved a win, but man, what a great loss.

If anything, I feel like McGary's situation should be proof to everyone that they should get out when the gettin's good. Even though it sucks for UM bball. McGary's back injury would be a lot less devastating if he were on the books for a cool million.

5th year senior. Great blocking ability. Leader on the court. Next year will be Horford's team. And Beilein will likely try running his two bigs lineup.
I would be shocked if Chatman redshirted. Though the 2/3 is going to be crowded and no one's gonna be a good fit for the 4.

What is this logic? When he wins, it's thanks to his players, but when he loses, it's because he choked?

Has anyone given serous consideration to the idea that GRIII might play his way out of the draft, while Nick plays himself into it?
ESPN's mock draft not long ago had Stauskas in the first round. But if GRIII doesn't show up, we could see this lineup next year:
Walton - so

Final 5 minutes of victory cigar squad yields some last minute points for Bradley making the score look deceptively close.
