all offense, no defense.  But he adapted, gave up some control, and hired a kickass DC this past year (and a pretty good one the year before) so that the team wouldn't be all offense, no defense, even if JB still is.

I maintain the complaints about that were well deserved before the past two years.

And I guarantee he still posts here under a couple different names. Until we have scrubbed the site clean of his assholery, it is ok to take a jab here and there. If he were actually correct about anything he concern trolled about, this would be a moot point because he would still be taking pot shots at Beilein. But he wasn’t, so he gets to slink back under his rock while the rest of us enjoy championship runs and having one of the few clean coaches in the nation

Coached Newfane High School in 1975 then Erie Community College then Div 3 Nazareth. Went to Div 2 for a spell then then Div 1 in 92 with Canisius.  And, (sarcasm font) big surprise, won many many games at all stops.  Including some great upsets in the NCAA with cinderella style teams.  So he's been a coach since 75 and was going to be a school teacher but the coaching worked out so well that he's a basketball teacher instead.  And we're priviliged to have him as our coach IMHO.

 

They need to sign him to a lifetime contract and keep Luke ready to take his place when he retires as a Michigan Wolverine.  :)

I will admit that I have espoused some ignorant Beilein views in the past... I hope that my integral support of his raise will make up for those piss poor takes of the past!

Love me some Coach B!

As have I... though I will say Beilein did take initiative and change his methods (essentially hiring a defensive coordinator)

 

This fall, I'm hoping Harbaugh will make people regret their piss poor takes of him and the football program...

After missing the tournament in 2015, I understood some people’s frustrations. I disagreed as I thought we would have made it with our future first round draft pick as well as our other two top 50 guys who were injured, but I understood why people had piss poor takes of him.

Harbaugh on the other hand, I can’t figure out people’s piss poor takes on him at all. He has won 28 games in 3 years after taking over a train wreck. 8 wins wasn’t great last year, but it wasn’t 3 wins. You would think injury hitting the most important position on the field combined with the youngest team in America would temper some of those piss poor takes on Harbaugh, but no. I have to read people wondering if Harbaugh is a good coach because the shittiest of shitstorms lead to “only” winning 8 games. We will dominate mofo’s this year in both sports. Book it

I took down names of the worst takes on the Fire Beilein threads and you didn't make the list. Most of them are either abstaining from Bball threads or have new accounts. (I'm talking about you Lampuki 22, That Guy Ceci, San Diego Mick, etc.)

one of the happiest days of my life.  I just love to see the good people in life finally get the rewards of their hard work, sacrifice, and loyalty.  Every time I see one of these cheating snakes win the national title it just gauls me.  We need to appreciate every day JB is our coach, because when he retires, he will be impossible to replace.

Heck  even the later Fisher years.  NCAA issues aside, we underperformed on the court his last few years, losing in the first round in '95 and '96 and missing the tourney altogether in '97.

Like others, I am completely fine with handing John Beilein a blank check and telling him that he can stay as long as he would care at this point.

When he does go one day, hopefully via retirement, it is undeniable that Michigan basketball will be in infinitely better shape than when Beilein got here.

Interesting how if you play by the rules, you work and live with integrity and high character, good things will come your way.  Dude has worked his butt off, done it right, and now he and our team are gonna reap major rewards.  He's already been phenomenal but I think the next 5 years are gonna be special.
