Great story by Darius Morris on The Players Tribune today. He writes about the 2011 NCAA Tournament and how it put Michigan basketball back on the map.
I'm not sure if I would say 2011 was the year they got back on the map, because they did win a game in the tourney 2 years prior. It did start a good consistent run though. It's a good read if you have some time.
Pretty ugly story. Rasheed Sulaimon is accused of sexually assualting 2 women during the 2013-14 academic year. The information eventually got back to the Duke AD and Coach K around March 2014. Coach K dismissed him from the team for "repeatedly struggling to meet the necessary obligations" on January 29th 2015.
Of course, special attention needs to be directed to #19 and #2. How true is that?
Hilarious and interesting viewpoint on how small schools can succeed against the mighty.
I never noticed this earlier, but I thought it that's pretty damn cool for defensive players.
And it shows us a side of the mild-mannered David Cutcliffe that we never knew existed before.
Ahh! Grim Reaper helmet awards.
Just look at him. He's too wholesome and too damn nice to display such unrepetant evil.

With all the Football Post-Mortems, it's time to remember: It's Basketball Season. Stauskas is a game time decision, GRIII is playing.
