(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?

Why are we talking about Michigan Basketball like it's some kind of niche sport here?

It's mainstream and a big deal. I don't understand this thread. Everyone on here also watches Michigan Basketball.

I hope they don't read press clippings and play well with a bull's eye on their backs. They are a target now--the other teams will be incredibly pumped to beat them. I believe that will make them tougher for another great tourney run.

Believe that Beilein exists? Or believe in him as a matter of faith? The first is a question of metaphysics and ontology too long for this forum. The second is considered idolatry in a number of religious traditions.

I think all empirical evidence points to him being extent and a very good coach relative to other coaches. Not sure belief is required, as empiricism is sufficient in this context.

Binghamton, not Binghampton, though the last Rand McNally road atlas I had spelled it incorrectly as well on the Eastern Pennsylvania page. Having gone to grad school there, Binghamton is decidedly not to be confused with any Hampton whatsoever.

So, is this like a snowflakes thread or some kind of open thread?  ...Do we do that here?  

And where, by the way, is our third PSL/PSD/PSC thread? Don't we have to have three threads on a topic before it's true? Isn't that how this works?
