This may not be as impressive to some of you, but it struck me as impressive. In a recent article on ESPN by Jeff Goodman, he discusses how UM will suprise the B1G this year in Basketball. The article talks about a lot of different things, but attributes the first reason to the "Beilein factor". In the past we've all seen how it doesn't matter if Izzo is playing a group of 3 year olds, he will have them ready for the tournament and make a run at the B1G because he's Izzo. This is one of the first articles I've read whith a similar type approach. Just a good feeling to have.
Quoted line of referrence:
However, this team will figure it out for a variety of reasons. It begins with the “Beilein Factor.”
Beilein is one of the best in the game at developing and managing players. His most recent example is former Ohio University signee Caris LeVert. Beilein and his staff have helped turn LeVert into one of the most complete players in the nation and a guy who will likely become the go-to option now that Stauskas and GR3 are in the NBA.
