I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
Title says it all. Congrats to Trey!
Burke becomes Michigan's first national player of the year since Cazzie Russell was named NCAA Player of the Year in 1966.
The sophomore was also named to SI's five-man All-America team, joining Oklahoma State's Marcus Smart, Creighton's Doug McDermott, Gonzaga's Kelly Olynyk and Indiana's Cody Zeller.
We've heard plenty about Trey Burke this year, but I loved the angle of this story. Daily guy Everett Cook sat with Benji Burke and his friends at a bar in Columbus during the Penn State game. (Yeah, not a great draw.) But this piece puts the relationship between father and son really, really nicely.
To everyone but Benji, Trey is Michigan’s star sophomore, the best point guard and one of the best overall players in the country. He’s the most important player on a Michigan squad that is widely considered to be a fringe top-20 team without him.
But to Benji, Trey is his project and his lineage, a lifeline to a game he loves more than just about anything and a growing reminder of what it means to raise a son and not his former player.
And for the first time since Benji coached Trey in basketball — which he did for most of his son’s life in AAU — their relationship has settled.
SI created a list of the coolest people ever to attend the 68 schools in this years tournament. Some interesting people on the list for sure. Who knew that Bob Gibson HOF pitcher for the Cardinals played basketball at Creighton, or the Big Show from WWE fame played basketball at Wichita State?
Anyways it has Madonna as our "coolest" but I think that is very debatable.
Who do you think is the coolest person to attend, not necessarily graduate from Michigan is?
My choice has to be James Earl Jones or Gilda Radner outside of athletes that played here.
Didn't see a link to a bracket so far on this site, so I thought I'd post one. If March Madness is your thing, you can fill in a bracket of how you think the tourney will go, either by printing it out or filling it online.
I'm using the nbcsports one:
Hope that helps!
I apologize if this has already been posted somewhere before or answered on another thread I cannot find, but I would like to know if anyone has info as to why they do not sell authentic basketball jerseys and only screen printed replicas are available.
I refuse to buy the cheaper stuff and don't really like the look. I don't want to buy used stuff off of ebay and I can not find out any answers as to why there are no stitched authentics available anymore.
Appreciate the help.
Just announced on ESPN, the Michigan women's basketball team earns their second-straight NCAA bid. Congrats to them!
They're an 8 seed and will face Villanova in the first round on Sunday at 7:30 pm ET in Palo Alto, California. So, the good news is they got in, as expected, but the bad news is if they beat Villanova, they'll almost certainly have to face the 1 seed, Stanford, on their home floor.
The 8 seed ties for Michigan's highest ever. They had that same seed in both 2000 and 2001.
Here's the mgoblue.com press release: Wolverines to Take On Villanova as No. 8 Seed in NCAA Tournament
Note: The game against Villanova will be televised on ESPN2.
