Believe it or not, five months have passed since the Michigan basketball program played its final game of the 2012-13 season. Although the offseason has been anything but quiet for the Wolverines, the ups outweigh the downs and have only added to the hype surrounding head coach John Beilein's club.
Less than two months before the 2013-14 campaign will tip off, it is time to assess what has happened since the conclusion of the national title game.
As previously mentioned, the offseason has been a good one for Michigan. Can the Wolverines close it out in similar fashion? It remains to be seen, though, there is reason to believe things could end with disappointment.
