Beilein had this to say at a coaches clinic in Ann Arbor:
“I have finally come to a place that I love,” Beilein said. “I have said that there are only two places I would rather coach at.
“One is an orphanage, because I wouldn’t have their parents bothering me. And second, a prison, because I wouldn’t have to worry about the alumni coming back.”
Some on the message boards have taken offense, but I don’t. I loved Beilein when he was here, and wish him the best at Michigan (where I’m convinced he’ll take the Wolverines to the Final Four). Besides, I’m totally cool with his replacement, which is more than I can say about the football side of things.
