Inside the Huddle‘s Michael Spath uses Michigan’s recent upswing to defend Beilein.
I’ve heard the refrains on social media – that’s not good enough. Not an 8 or 9 seed when Beilein is paid $3 million per year.
But if I had asked you preseason that if Michigan finished top five in the Big Ten, 11-7, and had a chance to make it to the Sweet 16, would you have taken it?
Yes, hooray for low preseason expectations. I edited his full argument slightly to fit the video. All I heard was “Sweet 16” which would be sweet compared to where the program was after the OSU loss.
