I'm sure there will be a Liveblog (because why jinx it?) but here's the Open Thread for this one too (because why jinx it?). From a fine season to a really good one, maybe more. Two down, four to go. Why not us? Time to shock the world. Go Blue!

Belein is a fantastic recruiter. However his style of play is always going to be predisposed to playing a very soft brand of basketball that as the season goes along is going to be exposed. I do not think he can take us to the next level. But thats just me and my opinion. He brought Michigan back from the brink but we may need a new voice to lead us to compete for national titles.

I just don't get how our interior defense can be so terribly bad.  It's not like we've got horrible, undersized players in there.  We should at least be "adequate" and not "terrible".

I don't get it, if Robinson can't guard anyone and isn't going strong to the basket, and isn't making open shots, what's the point of playing him? Al least Morgan would give us a little boost on defense

As good as GRIII is, with the way he disappears and can't play D...is it really a HUGE loss if he goes to the league?

Burke gone. Hardaway stays. GRIII stays after flirting with scouts.

We NEED a few 7 footers. A rim presence.

Sometimes I hate fellow michigan fans. You watch a few basketball games on TV and suddenly some of you think you're basketball experts. No, you don't know more basketball than coach B does. We're just getting outplayed by a superior basketball team... period.

Have you ever coached . I've coached for 15 years. These boys are unprepared and playing like shit. No hustle, poor poor poor game plan. And no defense , this problem just didnt pop up. Didn't we just fire the other coach that didnt teach defense
