Alpha Basketball Guy: Dusty May Doesn't Have Hobbies, He Only Wakes Up Every Morning Starving To Get Better At Basketball

Step 1 to winning a press conference is immediately be compared to Jim Harbaugh at Michigan. This is how you become a Michigan Man. We were in the gambling cave this past weekend debating is it a Yankee situation. Do you have to earn your Michigan Man status like pinstripes? Or do you automatically become a Michigan Man when you step on campus. Think this settles it. Sounding like Jim Harbaugh will be like getting a sticker on the helmet. This is Michigan Man pinstripe 2. Pinstripe 1 was an automatic approval rating from the #1 Michigan Man

Here's the thing, I'm not doubting what May is saying one bit here. You don't go from a manager on a Bobby Knight team to FAU head coach to a Final Four to Michigan without being a lunatic. Lunatics make the best coaches. I want my guy only to be focused on basketball. I know people like to shit on these guys who say they don't have hobbies, but if I'm a fan I don't want my coach to have hobbies. No golfing, no bird houses, no nothing. I only say bird houses so I can put this picture of Clem in the blog. I've never seen a man this happy. 

Yeah, yeah, nothing matters until games are played. But the floor isn't that high in year 1 for Dusty May. Win like 10 games and you've already improved the team. Don't have bizarre situations like slapping another coach or reportedly fight with the strength and conditioning coach. That's all May has to do in year 1 to start building something. But this is a win. You can say whatever you want in a press conference, saying you wake up only to think about getting better at basketball would have me aroused. That's what a coach should do. I'm jealous.
