Beilein Presser

Submitted by OwenGoBlue on September 25th, 2018 at 5:50 PM

John Beilein held his first press conference today ahead of the team's open (at least to media) practice and was incessantly asked about his heart surgery before talking about what he saw from the team's trip abroad and the freshman. 

247 has the full video and WolverinesWire has excerpts on the freshmen and an interview with X

In all honesty, I do think the condition of Coach B's ticker has more to do with the likelihood of success for the team than the pre-season performance of any of the freshmen.

Hope Coach B will be healthy for years to come, he's a class act and a great coach, we are lucky to have him.

I really hope he gets a championship for U-M, that man deserves a ring!

Really looking forward to this season, there will be some adjustments for the freshmen but they look good and will contribute and we have plenty of experience coming back and our teams usually get better as the season goes along, Go Blue!!!

Sounds like Iggy will be the backup wing to Matthews and Poole and Johns will see some time at the four and I bet the five for small ball lineups (or Livers at the five with Johns/Iggy at the four).

My completely wild-ass-guess at minutes as things settle in for the team based on these Beilein comments:

PG: Z 32/Brooks 8

SG: Poole 32/Braz 8

SF: Matthews 32/Braz 8

PF: Livers 25/Johns 10/Braz 5

C: Teske 25/Davis 8/Johns 7

DeJulius could cut into Brooks' minutes but doesn't sound like Nunez or Castleton are ready which isn't a surprise.
