Over the last week, however,Authentic MLB Jerseys Online, the hardwood has been as unkind as the gridiron.
After all of its success in recent years, the basketball team won't descend into turmoil because of a couple unexpected losses,China Jerseys, but the Wolverines will need to raise their level of play to contend for another conference title ? and the NCAA tournament selection committee won't look kindly on those NJIT and Eastern Michigan results.
First came a stunning home loss to the New Jersey Institute of Technology on Saturday. Then Michigan lost to Eastern Michigan at Crisler. The first defeat was national news. The second stung as well, coming against a school located only a few miles away.
Beilein's basketball team looked ready to pick up the slack again,Cheap Jerseys Online, beating Syracuse the same day Hoke was fired. But then came NJIT. And Eastern Michigan.
"Right now we're definitely going through our struggles athletically," said Mike Martin, who played football at Michigan before being drafted in the third round by the Tennessee Titans in 2012. "But in my mind Michigan is still going to remain one of the best schools academically and athletically."
"We tried too hard a few times,Wholesale Jerseys," coach John Beilein said Thursday. "Sometimes guys want to win so much."
The football coaching search is providing enough drama at Michigan. Now the basketball team might end up on the NCAA tournament bubble?
Michigan (6-3) has won two Big Ten titles in basketball over the last three seasons ? with a Final Four appearance in between. The program's rise under Beilein was especially welcome since it came at a time when the football team was going through an unusually rough patch. It's been a decade since Michigan won the Big Ten in football, and the Wolverines fired coach Brady Hoke last week.
"He said it best the other day, just yesterday," Albrecht said. "He said the season's roughly six months, which is roughly 180 days. We just had four bad days, so we've got a lot of basketball left to play."
The football team's future remains the single overriding issue facing Michigan athletics. A big-name hire ? like former Wolverine Jim Harbaugh of the San Francisco 49ers ? would bring optimism back to the Big House right away.
"Michigan's Michigan. It's going to get back on its feet," Campbell said. "It's a legendary school, all about tradition. If they get the right guys in there, everything will be back to order."
William Campbell, a former Michigan football player who is now on the Buffalo Bills' practice squad, said he was shocked when he found out about the loss to Eastern Michigan. Someone sent him a screen shot.

"At first I didn't see it ? I thought the dude sent me a screen shot of Michigan versus Michigan, and Michigan won. And then I saw the 'E' and I'm like, 'E? Who did we play?'" Campbell said. "Like, 'We lost to Eastern.'"
For now, the fan base is taking its lumps. Rival Ohio State is playing in the college football playoff. The manager of NJIT's bookstore said people from Michigan and Ohio have been ordering the little-known school's athletic gear ? that's presumably Michigan State and Ohio State fans eager to rub it in.
Beilein and the basketball team have plenty of time to return to the level Michigan fans have grown accustomed to, and at some point, the football team will hire a new coach, with all the hope and promise that usually brings.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) ? Just wait until basketball season.
Next up for the Wolverines is a game Saturday at No. 3 Arizona. Guard Spike Albrecht,wholesale jerseys, who says he's been dealing with an unspecified lower-body injury, said assistant coach LaVall Jordan had some encouraging words recently.
That refrain became an expression of hope for Michigan fans over the last few months ? as football Saturdays turned increasingly dreary in Ann Arbor. Everything would be fine,China Jerseys Wholesale, the thinking went, once the Wolverines took the court at Crisler Center.
"That football program, everybody knows is the driving force for the athletic department in Ann Arbor," Martin said. "We need to make sure we get somebody that embodies all the aspects of what it means to be in that position."
