further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
A trailer for ESPN's "I Hate Christian Laettner" 30-for-30 is out. The film premieres on March 15. Jimmy King and Jalen Rose are featured in the trailer, so it looks like there's going to be a lot of Fab Five in this thing:
I'm very much looking forward to seeing it, if only to remind myself of how much I hated him.
Last round for coaches challenge. Just a reminder to vote. Everyone already did a good job to get beilein into round 4 for $15000 for St. louis center residential community in Chelsea, Mi

Sorry, don't know how to embed the actual tweet. He was choosing between going to college or going pro in Europe, sounds like he wants to come here to play college ball. Had some interest from Duke and UConn as well, per UMHoops.
Amazingly, Michigan's loss to lowly Illinois on Saturday only knocked them down one spot in the most recent bracketology by ESPN's Charlie Creme.
They are no slotted as the second to last team out behind NC State. Assuming teams in front of them lose, this is their opportunity.
Here is the 2015 B1G Tournament bracket that was officially released yesterday upon the completion of the regular season:
8 Michigan will play 9 state on Thursday at 12:30 on BTN. If they win that game, they could very well make the NCAA Tournament.
If they do win that game, just pencil in the L for the Quarterfinals game against Maryland. Maryland went 18-0 in the B1G this year. Curiously, one of their two losses on the season was to Washington State, a team that Michigan beat.
Pretty ugly story. Rasheed Sulaimon is accused of sexually assualting 2 women during the 2013-14 academic year. The information eventually got back to the Duke AD and Coach K around March 2014. Coach K dismissed him from the team for "repeatedly struggling to meet the necessary obligations" on January 29th 2015.
I've always had trouble explaining to a non-fan friend or an outsider what exactly the point of the conference tournament is.
I've used examples such as "it's just a cash grab", "it's basically just for fun if you're good enough", "it's only needed for teams that need the automatic bid to get in, really".
What really is the purpose of a conference tournament? Are you in favor of them? What are your opinions on them?
