I am baffled at the stupidity of those wanting Beilein Fired. Not only did he take us to a tournament for the first time in more than 10 years, but we are starting 3 freshmen, a sophomore, and junior. In contrast, Kansas starts 3 Juniors, a Senior (which we don't even have one on our team) and a freshmen. Let's get some perspective people. I didn't even mention that if we lose this game, the combined record of the 5 teams we will have lost to is 70-8. Some people just don't get it.

Darius, you should listen to Clark and ease up on the one-handed stuff.  Some of your passes are just stupid.  And not like the kids use that word.

I would go for not taking 30 threes a game when you have been in the bottom tier percentage wise for last couple years.  Our offense is no different than what you see in a 40 and up league at the rec center.  We have never had a post game and the offense always starts beyond the three point line.  The only time we seem to get a basket in the paint is if Morris dribbles too much and finds someone open.

How dare Robin Benzing be declared ineligible (I believe the rule that caused him to be ineligible has subsequently been changed) and Ben Cronin's hip be that of an 80 year old's.  How dare these big men leave Michigan in its gravest time of need.

Name a true big man from one of JB's teams that has ever been a dynamic player in the post?  Ben Cronin == Mclimans, tall but no real threat to score.  Sorry, but the JB experience should be over by now.  I would actually like Michigan to be good at basketball again one day.  Neg if you want I am sick of seeing these poor shooting nights over and over again.  At some point we can't just blame the players but should look at the scheme.  Coaches always say if you can't hit atleast 30% from 3 point land then don't shoot it.  We are lucky to hit 20% most of the time.  I could do that left handed.

Michigan has sucked at basketball for years due to lack of a true coach.  You made your point.  You are not making a point for JB, however.  Proving that we hire lack luster coaches shows that logically JB follows this trend.  He is not the exception here.
