Three days after Michigan's loss to Louisville, Wayne Brumm [McGary and Robinson's former AAU coach] traveled to Ann Arbor to meet with Beilein and his staff. He knew that McGary wanted to make the same decision as his fellow freshman Glenn Robinson III, who is McGary's close friend and former AAU teammate. Brumm wanted some assurances that McGary and Robinson would be permitted to unleash their full potential -- not as role players, but as featured performers. Beilein did not make any explicit promises, but he indicated that if the players did their part, then they would have every opportunity to show what they can do, especially after Burke and Hardaway turned pro.
