Unless I am gravely mistaken, last night was the first time UM has worn black/dark socks with the maize jerseys since the 2013-2014 season, which ended with an Elite 8 appearance. Since that season, the team has inexplicably been wearing white socks/shoes with the maize jerseys; a horrible looking combination matched only by the horrible play of the team.
Michigan comes out in black socks/shoes with the maize jerseys for the first time in two years and they blow out their hated rival by almost 30. Coincidence? Most certainly not. I hope the coaches have learned their lesson.
Just thought this would be a fun little topic to throw in with the Michigan win last night.
Not sure if anyone is paying attention or noticed, but the nation's leading scorer resides in Mt. Pleasant. Dude is averaging 30.7 (!!!!!!!!!!) PPG which is almost a full 7.0 points more than the player sitting in the second position. And he's a pretty short guy, only sits at 5'9.
CMU hoops have been relatively dormant lately so it's finally nice to be able to point something positive with the program.
4 games with 40 or more, 1 game with 50.
Who's living in the past now?
Izzo: "U-M's seniors have lost 4-5 times to us, and they played with incredible passion that we didn't match"— Minh Doan (@_minhdoan) February 8, 2017
Izzo says he's not making excuses ... but, 'that was seniors against freshmen.'— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 8, 2017
Irvin, the other senior, had a whopping 3 points. Bzzzt.
Izzo says his freshmen (Winston, Ward, Langford) didn't understand the seriousness of the game— Minh Doan (@_minhdoan) February 8, 2017
Ward is from Columbus and Winston is from Detroit.
Izzo says MSU had a great week of practice, didn't show up on court.— Matt Pargoff (@MaizeBlueNews) February 8, 2017
