One of the questions was about how he’s the first black head basketball coach in the Big Ten since 2007 and the first in Michigan’s history.
Wait, what?

First black coach in the Big Ten since Eddie Jordan, I believe… Definitely not the first black coach at Michigan.

Thank goodness. I was having a Twilight Zone moment there.

The fact that there hasn’t been a black coach in the Big Ten before Juwan since Eddie Jordan is definitely notable though.

Certainly.

Can’t believe Dylan asked that question!

I kid, I kid.

Ha! Definitely wasn’t me. I believe the 2007 thing is first black coach hired by a Big Ten school since 2007. Jordan was not “hired by a Big Ten school” because Rutgers wasn’t in the Big Ten when he was hired.

I was going to say Ellerbe and Amaker but they were pre 2007

I guess it’s an understandable mistake for that questioner to forget that Michigan had a basketball program between Fisher and Beilein.

Man what a special moment there with Juwan reacting to BQ’s story… testament to how incredible that piece was
