I don't think this was posted anywhere on MGoBoard but as I did some googling last night on the mystery man that is Max Bielfeldt to try to figure out what potentially could be chiseled of this figure outside of a calf modeling contract in 2014-2015, I came upon this story with eyebrow raising comments from none other than Coach Bielein at the banquet.
Lorenz 247: Michigan head coach John Beilein raised some eyebrows at tonight's team banquet when he referred to sophomore center Max Bielfeldt as "unguardable" in practice.
Quinn Mlive: John Beilein just said the Big Ten is going to learn next year that "nobody can guard" Max Bielfeldt.
Now I have no idea how many subs were at this banquet, nor how many Coach B had but these were head scratching quotes for a player who has scored 38 pts in his life at the NCAA level, and shot a cool 28.6% from the field last year. My brain says too many subs were served; my heart says IBIT*. I am especially confused as I don't remember this sort of public profuse adulation for any other player in the past 7 years.
* In Beilein I Trust
Motivational ploy? Attempt at confidence building? Two years of possum (if so - why warn the conference of the tsunami about to be unleashed on them)? The Beilein
freshman to sophomore RS sophomore to RS junior wing/guard big man jump?
Who is the real
Slim Shady Max Bielfeldt? Discuss.
