and... i like them? I think I like them.
|True Shooting %||57.3%||57.6%|
I don't have a lot to say here except to note how RIDICULOUSLY identical both teams are in statistical profile. Rebounding and FT% are EXACT, 3P% is just one tenth off, and Steals, FT% and Assist rate are all razor thin.
I'd like to THINK that a team putting up identical numbers to M in the SEC should be highly advantageous for Michigan. I mean, by and large, they even play our game.
POSS - 64.7 / 62.7
FGA/Game - 58.2 / 54.3
3PA/Game - 19.7 / 21.8
OFF REB/Game - 10.7 / 10.7
It's unreal! It's a freakin' Mortal Kombat Mirror Match!
We will not be beaten at our own game.
I read about this plane crash near South Bend earlier, but they announced the names of the dead and injured today.
Sadly, one of the dead passengers was Steve Davis, star wishbone quarterback for the Oklahoma Sooners 1975 team that played Michigan in the 1976 Orange Bowl. Davis also performed sideline reporting for ABC college football, including one with Bo Schembechler (don't remember the game) as the teams went in before half-time.
You can catch the full footage of the 1976 Orange Bowl on youtube, a game famous Michigan's all-white uniforms. Oklahoma won the game 14-6.
Condolences to Mr. Davis' family and OU. I'm sure a little No. 5 may be on the Sooners' helmets this fall.
Most people who fill out their brackets from year to year have little quirks (teams they go for/against, seedings they like, etc.). Here are mine:
- I always pick against Michigan. That way I can cheer for my bracket, and the pain of losing is lessened. They lose to VCU this year. Coincidentally, when Michigan is in the tourney I usually have a team from their region win it all. This year it’s Kansas.
- F#ck Georgetown. In 2010, they were a 3 seed that I had going to the final four. They lost in the 1stround to Ohio (Bobcats). I have never picked them to go past the 2ndround since. This year, they lose to SDSU in the 2ndround.
- I always pick exactly one 12 seed to upset a 5 seed. Don’t ask me why. This year it’s Oregon over Oklahoma State.
- I always put Duke in my final four. They won me 250 dollars back in 2010, so I consider them a bit of a good luck charm.
What are your bracket quirks?
It's almost time to drop the puck at Lawson. Michigan can sweep Western with a win tonight and advance.
