Beilein has now won everywhere in the Big Ten besides Columbus

With tonight's victory in Madison, Beilein just needs to win in Value City Arena to have won everywhere in the Big Ten.

I remember 2-3 years ago I used to post on cbssports message boards and all the hacks there used to say Beilein couldn't win with his style. He then won a Big Ten title and I called them out and they then said he couldn't get to a national title game. Lucky for them they removed the message boards from the site before last years run.

Coach B just knows how to coach kids and frankly he has never had the talent like he has now and had last year.

In 2012-2013, Michigan's #1 in the nation offense scored 120.3 points per 100 possessions. The 2013-2014 team lost the national player of the year and another first round draft pick, but scores 120.6 points per 100 possessions. They got better. Incredible job, although I am at the point where I am no longer surprised.

I am no recruiting expert, but you would have to believe that this improves recruiting, right? Beilein is showing year after year that he can adjust and have his team (and in particular his offenses) perform at an elite level. Also, the year to year development of guys like Caris and Nik has to be another signal to recruits that the guy can flat out coach. Good things are ahead as long as Beilein is around.       Edit: Reply to StephenKass

The last time we'd beaten Wisconsin in football/basketball in Madison prior to tonight was 2001. By comparison, the last time we've beaten Ohio in football/basketball in Columbus is 2003.

In that case, let the good vibrations of 2014 that we have experienced last until February 11th (and beyond, of course) in Columbus. Massey would give us a 40% probability if the game were played right now, but basketball is funny sometimes - Massey didn't like our chances against Wisconsin at home either and that turned out nicely all the same.

I think we go 0-2 vs. MSU.

I think we go 1-1 vs. OSU, each winning on each others home floor

I think we go 2-0 vs. IU.

I think we lose @ Iowa, or 1-1 vs. Iowa because this game at home is a toss-up IMO, but we'll win at least 1.

I think we lose 1 game (like @PSU last year) that will drive everyone bat shit crazy. Someone will say 'Fire Beilein' and 20 people will demand that poster is banned for life. GhostofYost will die again in his grave.

I believe that's 11-5 in conference. 24-9 overall.

Here's the kicker...I think we WIN the B1G Tournament. Low #4 seed/High #5 seed.
