Mike Lantry, 1972
I came across an article about the MBB team and the BTT. When speaking about the recent increase in ratings of the BTN, BTN President Mark Silverman said,
However, there’s little question the revival of the sleeping giant in Indiana and strong run by the Wolverines have helped fuel this surge.
Silverman also said,
there were nights where Michigan basketball on BTN did better ratings than the Redwings and Pistons
This is certainly interesting to see Michigan leading the RWs in ratings. I know the RWs are down this year but the RW fans have been loyal for over 10 years.
Deuce2Sports has posted a story looking at conference tournament results for past Final Four participants. The concluding paragraph may provide some solace to Michigan fans:
So, the morel [sic] of the story is the expectations for your team in the NCAA Tournament should dictate how much stock you put into a conference tournament. If you think your team is a possible national champ then make sure it wins its first game. If the Final Four is your ceiling then don't sweat a conference tournament loss as much as the experts want you to.
My roommates (Wisconsin fans) and I are driving down to Chicago in the morning for the tournament. We all agreed that no matter who won or lost the game we would still go.
Thought I would check here to see if anyone from the MGOBLOG world was down there and didn't intend to go to the remaining games. We are looking for 3 or 4 tickets, location doesnt matter, the cheaper the better. I would rather give my money to a Michigan fan than some random guy, so let me know.
Wisconsin I and Indiana II were disappointing ENDINGS. This was flat out a disappointing EFFORT.
(Slight Mod Edit - condensing snowflakes to one thread. This thread had more replies and discussion, but M-Wolverine won the "thread title" contest. LSA)
I created this thread for 2 reasons, a more entertaining half hopefully, especially for Michigan and to divide up the traffic from the other thread.
We should be leading by more, let's hope we can beat this team down, Go Blue!
