Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
Great to see the wonderful recognition.
Why do a lot of people think Michigan is going to lose this game? Look, I know M is not Phi Slama Jamma, but what is it about this particular matchup and this particular team that is making this game the "upset special" of the first round? I am not expecting a cake walk here but all of the sudden every analyst and commentator that I see is acting like D.J. Cooper is a five time All American. I don't want to be the jinx guy, but I am I the only one that really does not see the ingredients of an upset here? I have taken a look at Ohio, I have seen them play and watched a little video. There are a lot of other matchups where a higher seed looks more vulnerable than Michigan to me. Prior to selection Sunday, JB was known as a coach who is a very tough out in the NCAA tourney. What's all the fuss about now?

I have never attempted to hide the fact that I'm just not much of a basketball fan.
Never played it, never watched it, and certainly never followed UM's teams in any
way. But many of you do, and these are the stories that the fan base is buzzing
about these days... and with good reason. Michigan Basketball has had a
great season and is certainly deserving of the spotlight.
So this weekend I found myself-- for the first time in my life, mind you-- doing
an online search to discover who Michigan drew in the tournament brackets. And
as we've all seen, the matchup itself is its own punchline. So much so that I even
considered discarding the topic and going somewhere else. But that'd be unfair for
all of the Bball fans, and probably the fan base as a whole-- our little illustrated
family was designed to be representative of all Michigan fans, not just, well, me.
In the end, as it always does and probably should, it came back to the
characters. It's been fun getting to know the archetypes of each individual
Blockham, and getting inside their heads pretty much writes the story
each time. Today, the frustration of the blue hair won out.
Look Thursday for another Men's Bball Tourney strip, where I'll get
inside the head of another Blockham who has good reason
to be enthusiastic of his team's chances this March.
THE BLOCKHAMS™ runs (typically) every Tuesday here at MGoBlog, and at least
every Thursday on its official home page. Also, don't forget to check out our newest
feature, Friday Roughs, a spontaneous low-end comic based on trending
Michigan events, available on Twitter and Facebook every Friday.
Congratulations to the Women's Basketball team, making their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2001! They are a 11 seed and will play 6 oklahoma on the road.
The selection show is on ESPN and they will be discussing the matchups at 8pm on ESPNU.
