Loss Impact is where WolverineNation takes a look at how much the departure of a starter or major contributor will mean to Michigan.

Former guard Zack Novak was Michigan's blue-collar guy from day one it seemed. Google his name and you'll find images of him screaming at his team, or with blood on his face. And yes, that sort of sums him up. He would do anything for the team and ended his career as one of the most memorable Wolverines, despite coming in undersized and underrecruited. The lefty definitely left his mark on Michigan basketball. A recap of that, along with his thoughts on his career can be found here.

But what does his loss really mean for Michigan coach John Beilein and the rest of the Wolverines?
