Mike Lantry, 1972
So a lot of people were speaking in superlatives last night, and rightfully so. But it has not been all that long since we've had a miracle comeback on a last second bomb.
So what was bigger for you, UTL or the Kansas game?
Both were huge games. First night game at the Big House vs. a big rival. First Sweet Sixteen appearance in almost 20 years. I suppose it depends on how deep we go in the tourney. I'm a bigger football fan, but I still can't decide. Especially since it was a win or go home match. I'm not even sure which was more improbable. Down 10 with 2 minutes to go? Down 3 with 30 seconds to go? Hail mary vs. well... hail mary.
Also, the Kansas game was big enough it needs a title. UTL will always be UTL. What will the Kansas game be forever referenced as?
Super Sweet Sixteen? The Jerryworld Redemption? Simply, The Karma Game? What do we call this game going forward? I want consensus on this thread...
Solid article on Burke finally getting a game winning shot to fall. But watch the video of the game recap. Vitale goes nuts! The Motown Mash?
Also (in response to the video), I don't want to hear "Kansas gave Michigan" anything. Sometimes, probably the majority of the time that happens. Michigan TOOK this game. They flat-out outplayed/outcoached the Jayhawks down the stretch.
Nonetheless, nice recap and quotes from Trey.
How about a Mitch McGary steel jockstrap, to go with the we got subs T-shirts?
Guaranteed to boost your rebounding.
A little late? No, not this time. Last night, there wasn't going to be a sober thought posted. If you weren't (legally) under the influence of something, you were under the influence of Trey Burke, Mitch McGary and Michigan Basketball.
That said, as we wake up...I still wanted to make a thread to get everyone's thoughts on the entire game. Last night if someone would've spoke of the first 37:30 it would've been "neg city," I think today is a good time to evaluate the entire game.
Also, I'm 2 for 2 in making these threads (after wins), let's make it 3 for 3.
P.S. - The Michigan vs. Florida game is at 2:40 on Sunday. (I've seem 2:20 and 2:40...just be ready at 2:15)
