Question for you B10 nuts - has Belien been a pretty good recruiter since arriving to Michigan? Saw this year's class was pretty good, as next year's too.

I never him being a great recruiter at WVU -- but I'm sure it is infinitely easier to recruit to Michigan rather than West Virginia.
oh yeah! we bad! oh yeah! we bad!
nice 360 Robinson III
GO BLUE!

yeah I think Belien has done an outstanding job recruiting. it may be easier to recruit at MI NOW....but when he was hired MI bball was down, and had been very down for over a DECADE! he walked into MI in 2007 with Manny Harris and Deshawn Sims already at his disposal and built from there. his first recruiting class he got zack novak and stu douglas (also got ben cronin which was a big deal but the 7 footer broke his foot and never played for MI). novak & douglas were huge in the reemergence of MI. in his second they went to the dance for the first time in ELEVEN YEARS! next class he picked up darius morris & jordan morgan. now he's got Hardaway, Robinson III, Smotrycz...the man's a friggin genius.

the dude saved Michigan basketball. I love him.
