    John Beilein named one of top-5 coaches on the hot seat:
    "Beilein is a great basketball mind, but that alone isn't enough to get it done in the Big Ten. In three seasons at Michigan, he's never finished better than seventh, and the Wolverines could finish last in the league this season, which would mean four straight seasons of finishing in the bottom half of the Big Ten. It's worth noting Tommy Amaker was moved when he did as much for three consecutive seasons at Michigan. So this really could be it for Beilein if the Wolverines finish where most are predicting."

    In three of Amaker's last four years they won more games than Beilein won in his one "good" (I put that in quotes since they were way off of challenging for the league title, tying for 7th place in the Big Ten) season. Despite a heavy emphasis on 3-point shot attempts, there isn't a single player whose three point percentage improved when you compare Year 1 and Year 3 under Beilein, and the sophomores last season (Novak, Douglass) didn't improve from their frosh seasons, either.

    Amaker teams finished 8, 3, 5, 9, 6 & 7 in the Big Ten. Beilein's teams have gone 9, 7, 7 and are expected to be 10th this season.

    The UM-MSU "rivalry" was labeled as "not" in a what's hot/what's not column.

    I have to say, I rewatched some clips of the BTN's "Journey 2010" series yesterday, and I kind of felt bad seeing video of that UM locker room after they lost to MSU on a last-second shot - that was a rough locker room scene. DeShawn Sims was sitting there saying he didn't want to play basketball anymore. Beilein was telling them to be disappointed, but not discouraged. It was a disturbing scene. But on the other hand I can't feel too bad since Sims could've just done what Udoh did and transferred to a better place after a couple years of losing a lot of games. Sims' life seems like a stream of Murphy's Law - other than the fact that he is a great basketball talent, nothing seems to go well for him.

    Jaxbuck I hate tsun ‘18 Fantasy Baseball Champ

    I'm confused.

    scUM players were crying in a locker room after a devastating loss, I got that part but what happened that made you feel bad/disturbed? Did you hear that damned song or something?

    buckeyesin07 Veni. Vidi. Vici.

    :tibor:. Whose fault is that, considering he's been there for 3-4 years now? I see you're now using football excuses for basketball. Is this Carr's fault too?

    My statement was in regards to him being on the hot seat. He's on the hot seat with an awful team IMO. I am not making any excuses. I said the team is terrible. He's done a terrible job recruiting, it won't surprise me if he's gone after this season. basketball has fallen on hard times. Worse than the football team if you ask me.
