COACH BEILEIN: It’s hard to believe that it’s been already five years to have the privilege of coaching at Michigan. We love practicing with this team right now.
We have an incredible team-first attitude that’s been very healthy so far. And now we’re a couple of weeks away from the start of the season. So we love the young men on our team.
The most difficult thing will be replacing Darius Morris and all the intangibles that we had last year as a team that was really playing with a chip on their shoulder. So we’re working hard at that. And I like the progress so far.
The local and national media will convene in Chicago today for the Big Ten’s annual media day. Michigan will be represented by head coach John Beilein, Tim Hardaway Jr., Zack Novak and Stu Douglass. You can catch John Beilein (and every other Big Ten coach) during their press conferences streaming live here – Beilein is scheduled to take the podium around 10:40 ET. Our own Kevin Raftery is on the scene and we’ll be keeping track of his reports along with compiling other interesting tidbits in this live blog.
The other important piece of news today is that top-5 2012 recruit Mitch McGary has narrowed his list to Florida, Duke and Michigan and plans to announce a decision next week.
