Thanks for sharing this. I live in an area that does not have a station that carries Rome. I really enjoyed his show when I lived in the Detroit area. The smackdowns were great! Plus I am avoiding the Poggi drama.

John Beilein's experience and perspective makes for an entertaining interview, in my opinion. Thanks for sharing this with the board.

One thing that I he mentioned that I thought was intriguing was his duscussion of the "good loss" in the sense that long winning streaks sometimes make teams forget how to play the tougher games (summarizing about 90 seconds of dialogue there). He sort of tied it to the Ohio State loss, which was followed by a big win at Minnesota and then a week of "getting back to basics", as he put it earlier in the interview. 

It seemed to me that he's pretty hyped about this team in his own  way, especially when he talked about having five freshmen playing significant time and when talking about Burke and Robinson as well. Awesome stuff!
