Michigan played Ohio State 1 year and 360 days ago, at home.
Some highlights from the MBB Coaching Candidates Thread:
Larry Krystkowiak, Utah, currently on a run of two NIT appearances.
Kevin Ollie, UConn, now fired.
Fred Hoiberg, Chicago Bulls, also fired.
Archie Miller, Dayton, most recently seen with a blank look on his face.
The recruiting, defense, and rebounding are issues that have been around 10 years and are never going to get better as long as he's still here IMO. Michigan hasn't won a true road game since February 2016. West Virginia has been better off since he left. Beilein had a nice two year run with a whole lot of "blah" before and after. Unfortunately, it feels like the program will be stuck in purgatory until a change is made.
I think if we keep Beilein we will be a perennial bubble team. Some years on the right side, like last year, and some times on the wrong side. I guess for some people that is enough since we went to a championship game five years ago and an elite 8 four years ago.
I just think he is locked into a system and style of recruiting that is not working out, and it is not going to change. It is who he is.
Michigan basketball will be sub .500 overall with 4 or less wins in the Big Ten the next 2 years if Beilein doesn't retire or get fired. Which are both unlikely.
The ironic thing is that he's a couple of doors down from a coach that is a master of recruiting in Jim Harbaugh.
It's almost hard to believe they are both at the same school.
I 100% believe that Harbaugh could recruit basketball players better than Beilein can recruit basketball players, despite having no basketball background.
Beilein had a pretty great 2-3 season stretch but it is clear he can't do it consistently. You really have to be on crazy pills to think it will be any better in the future if Beilein is still here. Time to move on.
