I did not make this headline up
alltime best champions michigan wolverines
Not to undermine Butterfield (LINK) who's numbers appear both impeccable and comforting but some hack named Nate Silver published an article for the New York Times (tumblr site?) giving Michigan a somewhat, err, dimished likelihood of winning the NCAA tournament. Via UMHoops (LINK):
Michigan (up to 3.8 percent from 2.5 percent) Michigan could easily enough have been a No. 1 seed had it played better down the stretch, and it was probably underseeded as a No. 4 even with the losses that it took. In general, however, we’ve found that late-season performance doesn’t tell you that much more than early-season performance when it comes to tournament play – and Michigan’s slump has not extended into the postseason. It was a break for the Wolverines to play in Auburn Hills, Mich., but their domination of a tough Virginia Commonwealth team on Saturday was nevertheless impressive, and they should be thought of as the equivalent of a strong No. 2 seed right now.
It is worth noting that if the 3.8% continues to increase it will someday reach 81.45% and all will be right with the world.
Well I am creating a Michigan Football team on EA Team Builder. I want to make my version of the best Michigan team I can assemble. Any ideas on where I could find a team already made. If anything, I need #'s and maybe some personal stats like weight, height, etc... I'm sure I'm not the only one that wants this or has created one. Any input would be awesome! I did notice on Mgoblue.com they have rosters back until 97'.
