i refuse to even consider this a possibility
Alright, alright....so this is my first time posting a new thread, so take it easy on me here. Just saw that Joe Lunardi made an update to his Bracketology selections this morning and Michigan is making some noise! Joe now has Michigan listed as the 6th team left out. I've read a few folks saying that finishing 5-4 in their final 9 games (and a win in the BTT) wil likely lock us for a bid. I think a lot will depend on just who those 5 wins come againist but I just can't see us getting left out with a conference record of 11-7. I also checked Bracket Matrix this morning and we are currently on two 'experts' brackets and on the fringe on many.
Episode covers the heart breaking loss to Wisconsin and the win at Rutgers. The full college gameday at Crisler is also posted with the Austin Hatch fearure and HARBAUGH. Enjoy BEAT STATE!!
EA Sports did a great feature story on Jalen Rose's charter school in Detroit:
The more I read and hear about what he's doing with that school, the more my admiration for Jalen grows. He doesn't have to be doing this - he could just be sitting back at ESPN writing checks to his alma mater so that everybody would think he's a great guy. When you see this story about his school, you see that he's really walking the walk.
And he drops a semi-bombshell in this: He might want to run for Mayor of Detroit someday. Maybe THEN they'll put the banners back up in Crisler.
He's currently ripping Izzo on 97.1 and saying that Beilein has passed him as a coach. I've got my popcorn ready.
It was FOUR years ago tonight that Stu Douglass changed the direction of Michigan Basketball.
Michigan entered the game on a 6-game losing streak that included horrible losses to the likes of bad Indiana, Northwestern and Minnesota teams. The season looked to be going as the "experts" had predicted before the season started. (They had Michigan finishing 10th of 11 in the Big Ten).
And then something funny happened. Michigan led for most of the game but you just weren't sure if this was real or not. It sure didn't seem like it near the end as state had a comeback in the final 2 minutes.
And then it happened. It REALLY happened. A three pointer that ended the hopes of a state comeback up at breslin with under 30 seconds to go to put Michigan up 60-55. Michigan's first win there since most of the players on that team were in kindergarten.
And the rest, they say, is history.
1/27/2011 to Basketball, is what 11/22 was to Football, IMHO. A special date that should never be forgotten.
Fitting another Michigan MBB team pulled on out a win on this night.
