If Beilein leaves, why wouldn't LJ be on their short list? Unless UM goes the Memphis route and hires Juwan Howard (more qualified than Penny), this is a very real discussion. Like OSU, it will come down to LJ's career desire. If Mack left Xavier, why wouldn't LJ leave for UM? UM has proven to be patient, giving Amaker 6 years prior to Beilein and with 2 national championship appearances in the last 5 years, their resources and facilities are unmatched and only growing.
