Mike Lantry, 1972
Bearsfan2690 created an account last night to tag it to my "Way Too Early Preview"...
What do you think? The guy obviously put a lot of work into it...maybe even a little bit of money? I dont know anything about this "DJ Drama" that wikipedia didn't tell me...
But regardless, semi-legit recording artists in Philadelphia(assuming its that DJ Drama) are writing songs about Michigan basketball. Whether its a breakout hit or more of a retro pastiche...Its kind of cool that it exists.
EDIT: Yeah, nevermind. Lyrics edited over pretty decent song. Thought the production quality was too good for fan fiction. Guess I was right.
As always, the game will get its own thread tonight, as will the other games. But for those that are excited on this Friday and can't get any work done...here's a thread for us to discuss tonight's games.

This article by Spencer over at EDSBS was only pretty good until I got to Thad Matta. Now, I must share it with you all.
Thad Matta: "Le Miniature"
My favorite thing about Thad Matta's hair is that it's like a normal person's hair that has gradually shrunk over time, perhaps after repeated dryings on high heat.
Considering all the hype going Michigan's way over on ESPN, it's interesting that less than half of their analysts picked Michigan to beat Kansas. Granted, they didn't poll Scoop Jackson and some of the other people who built up the Michigan hype train. I still think this shows how the WWL cherrypicks it's stories to advance whatever narrative they think people want to hear...
The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) announced its All-American teams today, and Trey Burke was yet again placed on the first team. This follows his first-team selections by Sporting News and USBWA and means that he's a virtual lock to be a consensus first-team All-American for 2012-13. The NCAA uses those three teams plus the one selected by the AP (not yet announced) in determining the year's official consensus All-Americans. (Given the formula used, it seems the only way Burke could be denied consensus status is if he were somehow left off all of the AP teams.)
From the NCAA Award Winners publication, here are Michigan's previous consensus first-team All-Americans:
