Don’t have link a link or an image but ESPN just displayed a graphic during his presser listing him as the winningest Michigan coach in the tournament with 15 wins. Congrats, Coach Beilein! I love watching his haters eat crow!!!!

In a year where the dark side of sports comes to the fore, it's so damn awesome that Beilein can be the coach of such a great moment with a great team.

Hats off to Coach B. Absolutely incredible body of work.

I have gone from sad drunk to jolly drunk in a matter of milliseconds. The bar has lost count of how many shots have been purchased for the bar by others. Uber will be notified in due time.

Congrats to Coach B for getting the most out of this team.  Let's all be honest for a moment and agree that he maximized the talent on this team - in October most would agree a S16 would be a success.  Add a B1G tournament title and this team has beaten expectations.

Viva Beilein!  Let's get 4 more!

B10 tournament title -- two in a row -- and Sweet Sixteen appearance.  Anyone would have jumped at that before the season started, or for that matter in mid-January!

And, not to be a dick, but hard for me to see Wagner getting drafted this year.  I think there is a real good chance he's back.

because of the sanctions. If you don't, by my count Fisher had 18 wins in tournament play.

Doesn't change anything important, though—Beilein is a great coach.

To me, John Beilein using the phrase “overdose of swag” is right up there with the super soaker version of John Beilein. Full of surprises!

I loved how in the post game interview, Coach B line hugs Jordan Poole and says, ‘that’s what you do, that’s what you do.’ And winning in March, coach B: that’s what YOU do!

Congrats to our surefire future hall of fame coach! Celebrating this for the next five days is going to be pretty similar to celebrating the Big Ten championship for 11 days. Let the good times roll.

"Let's credit John Beilein: That was a perfectly run final play. I was sitting right behind him. Never lost his cool through the crazy final minute. Elite coach."

He still doesn't sign enough 5 stars though./s

Don't worry, the nattering nabobs of negativism will be out in full force next December if the team isn't in the top 3.

Vacated games a factor, obviously. Fisher made the final three times, winning once, not to mention other seasons.

No matter. Good for Beilein. Here's to him taking off the asterisk.

Great coaches always put their players in the best position to win. And they let the results come true from the players product.

That said, this weekend wasn’t anyone’s best effort. Which could be scary for the field.
