a terrible blight on our fine country
I thought that Ace was just having a little fun. But I give you this photo in todays Detroit News:
If anyone can embed, that's above my salary grade.
We all know what's at stake today. Illinois has been playing much better of late, so I expect this to be a tough game. The Illini are a pretty good defensive team (Top 15 Kenpom) and horrible offensively. Michigan seems to do well against teams that can't light up the scoreboard and rely on defense to win games. Illinois' defense is predicated on getting turnovers, but we don't turn the ball over. Still, this should be a close game throughout, and let's hope we can avoid another awful first 10 minutes before the shots start falling. 63-61 Michigan. Predictions?
In the first games of conference tournament action, Colgate knocked off Navy 57-51 and Lafayette knocked off the mighty Greyhounds of Loyola (MD) 84-71. The Atlantic Sun and Horizon League kick action off tomorrow.
Nice recap of the Purdue tip in and the win against the gophers giving us a share of the Big ten title. Enjoy Go blue
This is my first post, so be gentle. I just read an article about John Groce not even reaching out to Caris after Groce left Ohio for Illinois. Its ironic how quickly these guys go from promising you and your family all types of things to not being able to extend the courtesy of picking up the phone. I hope Caris comes out tomorrow night in Champaign with a chip on his shoulder like Jalen did 21 years ago.
