Hilarious and interesting viewpoint on how small schools can succeed against the mighty.
There is a nice article at "The Wolverine" on the win and the seniors last day, entitled "Here and now trumps the way we were."
(Edit: Bad link fixed.)
It must be very hard for Denard, Kovacs, Demens, and all the seniors to say goodbye to the Stadium for the last time as football players at Michigan. The last 5 years have been the most tumultuous of my tenure as a Michigan fan. I'm very glad to see the team where they are now, and I look forward to many good years to come. And I can't thank the seniors enough for all they've done. Bravo!

I just wanted to take this opportunity on Senior night to thank the seniors for what they have done for Michigan Basketball. It wasn't always pretty, or flashy, but these young men gave their everything for 4 years to help restore Michigan Basketball to its once proud state. It's a shame that their last home game was a loss, but they should know they will ALWAYS be appreciated and loved by Michigan fans. They are true Michigan Men.
Now let's win this thing with house money.
