well this may seem hard to believe, many on here are already back to irrational Beilein hate as though the BTT and Sweet 16 run did not happen.  They will only speak of the loss to Oregon, not pursuing Mamba forcefully enough, bad scheduling, etc. etc.

One of the best all around coaches I've n the game.

Ameteur edit for the article...it says he's mentored 100 players...shouldn't that be 1000?

But I don't think so. Say you get 5 new kids a year -- over 40 years, that's 200 players. And I doubt those earlier years he was getting 5 new players a year. Initially I thought it might have conflated numbers and just meant during his time at Michigan, but as I thought more, it probably isn't. Maybe the number is above two hundred, but it could be a bit under too, and they didn't t feel like going back and counting up each player.

He's just so perfect for the job he has. I will never complain about him again, because I know in hindsight I will always regret it. I think he even fixed the problem of relying on the three anyway so I will have no reason to complain any more anyway!
