Hopefully Coach Howard can win one for Michigan U. - full circle indeed.

Time will tell. Wouldn't mind him sticking around for a while. Depends on what his motivations are.

Given his history with Michigan & how his exit transpired, NCAA finals loss as a player -- motivation would be to "rewrite" the history books and his / Fab 5 Michigan basketball legacy.

Nothing less than a championship(s) will do.

I agree. If it seems realistic to win one, that will be his goal and somewhat feel like the fab five won one, even if it is just him as coach winning one.
