(Believe in Beilein)

Nothing in here about the Basketball team. Not worried at all about the game Saturday against W. Michigan as Beilein has the team smoking hot and working well. Same for Binghampton. But that gets followed the 6th of Jan. with Indiana, and that will be a tough one. The Hoosiers are cranking out the wins too

Any thoughts about the roundballers you would like to share like to share?

What the hell is up with the BPI?

Michigan basketball is currently ranked 4th in Bart Torvik's rankings, and 6th in kenpom. So what the hell is up with BPI?

We're ranked 15th, one spot behind (wait for it...) Villanova. (To be fair, we're second in ESPN's "resume" computer ranking. But I think maybe they're overvaluing preseason expectations if they've got us ranked behind a team we beat by 20+ on the road who also lost to Furman).

Chris Webber was on the Rich Eisen show yesterday. He spoke about his experience as the honorary captain, the fans, and how appreciative he was for his time on campus this past weekend. I think this is a good first step in reconciliation. Disappointed there was no basketball meetings, but maybe in the future. Good listen, if you care to hear it. 0:00-9:05

I'll try to embed, but likely fail.

MBB is on a boat.  Teske wearing normal human size goggles when he is not a normal human size. Brazdeikis showing the articles about him being jacked for a freshmen are not fluff. Jordan Poole wearing snowboarding goggles.  

This team is going to be so fun to watch.

 

Semi OT: Podcasts and Twitter Follows and a good SEC podcast on Shea

Semi OT: Podcasts and Twitter Follows and a good SEC podcast on Shea

I try to walk an hour or so each day and as part of it, I line up various podcasts on my phone on YouTube. While looking, I came across this podcast from SECFans on YouTube discussing Shea starting for Michigan and how much it will or will not help. They did a very good analysis and are actually more positive on last season than most of us are. They discuss Shea's performances at Ole Miss and how that will translate to Michigan with his "gunslinger" tendencies and all.  This podcast occurred before Harbaugh announced Shea as the starter.

Unbelieveably inspiring story about this young man who endured losing his mother at the age of 7, growing up with an alcoholic father, and overcoming homelessness on his way to gaining admission to Michigan's Nursing school and competing for a walk-on spot this coming year.

 

Just read the damn article.

They are on ESPN2 right now.

Katelyn Flaherty of Michigan is shooting in women’s three point competition. She also participated in a team shots challenge a few minutes ago.

Edit: Flaherty wins the womens’s competition and then comes up short against the men’s champion from William’s and Mary.

32 wins = most ever!

When the announcer during the A&M game said this was by far Beilein's best team, I was a bit skeptical still. But now they've won more than any team in Michigan basketball history! If they play their best ball, they can beat anyone. And I fully expect them to win the whole thing at this point. Regardless of whether they're better than the '13 squad, they've taken their place in Michigan history and are bringing home at least 2 banners and a win record to show for it. Congrats boys!
