Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.
Indiana @ Illinois, tipping off now 7:00 ET, ESPN
N.C. St. @ Duke 9:00 ET ESPN3 (WTF, this is really not on a cable network??!)
And for basketball enthusiasts here's a good night to catch the sneaky good Oregon team in action....Colorado @ Oregon 10:00 ET ESPNU
Go Illini! (Let's not hold our breath)
Specifically the last one?
Not surprisingly, Trey Burke has been named one of twelve midseason finalists for the Bob Cousy Collegiate Point Guard of the Year Award. Here are the twelve:

There's a fan vote component, and you can vote for Burke here.
The player that receives the most fan votes will receive one vote toward the final committee vote. Fan voting will run one month – beginning February 7th and will conclude March 7th.
The five finalists will be announced on March 11.
Please don't hammer me too hard on this, for this is my first thread post, but I really wanted to get everybody elses' opinion on where this season is going for the Men's basketball team. Lately I've been looking into the analysts' predictions and trying to get a general feel for where this team is headed, whether it be a Big Ten championship or a Final Four run. Maybe I'm looking into this way too early, but I feel that if the pieces are in the right spot, this team has the potential to do seroius damage in March, if that wasn't already given. We certainly need everybody healthy on the roster to do this, but I would like to hear from you guys, what are things we have done extremely well up to this point, things we really need to improve on in order to do damage in March, and personal expectations/predictions for this team. Thanks everyone, and GO BLUE!
According to Rothstein:
Michigan basketball is going to wear 1968 throwback jerseys for its home game on Feb. 17 against Penn State. Part of the Crisler dedication.— Michael Rothstein (@mikerothstein) February 7, 2013
Looks like you can buy Cazzie's at the MDen too: http://www.mden.com/shopping/product.cgi?TI1203+2030
Are these some jerseys people like for once? I for one approve, and wish they weren't so expensive to buy.
EDIT: pasadenablue made me realize I have no pic of them, he posted one a few posts down to compare to our home jerseys from a few years ago, here they are:
Yes, you read it right, folks. Everybody's favorite color commentator will be calling his first Final Four this April, thus continuing his quest to announce every big Michigan basketball game and annoy every Wolverine fan to death. It's gonna be awesome, baby!
And if that wasn't fantastic news already, Jay Bilas will be doing the OTHER semifinal game.

EDIT: This will only be for International TV as it turns out. Sorry to all Michigan Fans in Canada.
