2019-20 Michigan Basketball

Recommended Posts


I thought following Beilein would be too tough for most folks and I questioned Howard's transition from the pros to college. 

Its only 7 games, but I don't think there is much doubt anymore.  This is going to prove to be a home run hire.

MSU is number 1 in BPI, Michigan is 37th.  This is why teams should schedule as tough of opponents as you can.  State is 7-2 overall and is 1-2 against ranked teams yet their BPI is 1(which is one of the main metrics the committee goes by) cause they get rewarded for their schedule.  Its essentially a no lose situation, you get to face tougher competition to get you ready for the season, if you win great, if you lose it doesn't hurt you as evidence of State's ranking.

Juwan will be fine when it comes to coaching.  This isn't some rube that got a job because he went to school there.  He was just starting to interview for NBA head coaching jobs and probably would have landed a job in the next year or two.  He has a legit resume and learned from Spoelstra, one of the best coaches in the NBA.  Plus he isn't taking over a dead program.  Beilein left plenty of tools for Howard to work with.

Recruiting is where I'm still concerned.  That will make or break Howard.

Hunter Dickinson. 7'2" center, announcing his choice today.   Speculation has UM in the lead spot for this top 50 recruit.

Dickinson does indeed choose Michigan.  I have a feeling Howard is going to recruit very well, particularly with big men.

When you're 1-3 in your last four, playing Presbyterian College is just what the doctor ordered.  A school with just 1100 undergrad students and about 80 faculty members.  Michigan probably has more faculty than that in the Maoist Transgender Studies Department.

Rumor that Terrance Williams may commit to UM tonight, 6'6"  can play the 3 or 4.

Terrance Williams indeed commits to UM, another solid get for Howard.  Ranked #83 on ESPN's top 100 for 2020.  Michigan now moves up to #4 in the 2020 rankings according to ESPN and 247.

What does it take for Izzo to get a technical? All game long chirping at the refs.

The state guy just flat out punched Michigan in the nose.

W.T.F.?

Xavier Simpson drives Ward Manuel's wife's car into a pole at 3 AM, and then leaves the scene?

Juwon has his first controversy.   Maybe Warde too.    It appears they both tried to push this under the rug with a one game suspension for a curfew violation with the hope the real story wouldn’t come out that he lied to police.    Lucky the cop was a UM fan and didn’t push for a breathalyzer since Z was probably wasted too.

Hey - it's all good - everybody had a really good talk about it.

An article came out today saying that John Beilein is about to be fired in Cleveland.  But unless the Cavs have some way of wriggling out from under his contract, like his "thugs" remark, he is apparently owed five million per for the rest of this year plus the next four years.  Nice retirement package for a few months of work with just 14 wins to show for it.

P.S.   I see that there are now lots of articles predicting the imminent demise of Beilein's NBA career.

M with a big win on  the road against Purdue. Boilermakers have been on a bit of a skid but M hadn't won there since 2014. 18 wins with 4 to go and two of those at home. 20 win season is in reach after looking like a long shot at mid-season.
