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.

Mitch McGary Down to Three, Will Announce Next Week

920741[1]After shutting things down for the last two weeks, Mitch McGary is almost ready to announce his decision. The 6-foot-10 big man from Brewster Academy will decide between Florida, Duke and Michigan next week, according to his most recent blog at ESPN.com.

I’m planning to make my commitment next week sometime too.

I can honestly say that right now I don’t know where I’m going so anything you read that says I do isn’t true. I already talked to my man Jason Jordan from ESPNHS and let him know that I want to do another blog before I make my announcement just to get all of my thoughts out and clear my mind so I can make the best decision possible.

At this point, I’m focusing on Florida, Duke and Michigan.
