Article from 10 years ago- General consensus from the comments section is that Coach B can’t coach

Someone mentioned LLP in another threat and that made me find this article from 2010. I found the comments the more interesting part of this. The general consensus from the comments section is that Coach B can’t coach. (at least not at a UofM level) Most of the comments are brutal.

What a bunch of Nay-sayers. How far we have come since 2010.

While I have been somewhat frustrated at times over the last 10 years with U of M’s inability to recruit very highly rated players, I never doubted what Beilein did or could do. I think I was more frustrated by the system (NCAA basketball ) and by the recruits/players. Recruits with either their hands out ($) or ones that just didn’t recognize what a great teacher and developer Coach B was. I was really frustrated after our first appearance in the national title game. It seemed not to help us grab any 5 stars. I’m hoping that this year’s appearance will be different and it will help bring slightly higher rated guys in.

But if not, we’ll be ok. Coach B will coach’m up.

Drawing a general consensus from MLive comments… not ideal.


Favorite comment in response to someone being optimistic: “It will be a long time before UM BB makes it to a tourney other than one of those pre-season holiday tournaments.”

They did in fact made the tournament next year. I think it’s stellar what a job Beilein has done in the face of much doubt. Thankful to have him.

That comment was so dumb because Michigan had already made it to the NCAA Tournament under Beilein!

Also what Dylan said regarding mlive comments (or really any major news/sporting site).
