“White Collar,” or “Oh, How Far We Have Come”

It was not quite 14 months ago that Maverick Morgan called the Michigan team “white collar” after Illinois won by 16, dropping Michigan to 1-3 in the conference. After that game, it seemed that the cry to fire Beilein had grown into a general consensus. If you can, think back to mid-Januaury last year. Now, if I had told you then that Michigan was going to win the next two BIG tournaments and would be a top-10 team rolling into the tournament now, you would say … what?
