2013-14 Season Highlights: Andrew Dakich
I'm not going to lie, when One Frame at a Time comes out anymore, if the highlight includes Michigan's bench, I ignore the play and look for Dakich.
It started with the title, the text, the music and then the video.
This is oh so wonderful. The music is perfect.
That is one impressive Freshman year. I look forward to seeing his growth from season to season.
There's a lot of NBA franchises that need help making their teams appear interesting and exciting to the fans. Seeing a young talent like Dakich that can punctuate the occasional highlight in a game they're not actively trying to tank may get him a nice offer.
So much awesomeness...
Can CBS do a live stream of Andrew Dakich throughout the tourney? One of those star watch thingys. Have one camera on him at all times. Like I mean 24/7.
Okay maybe during just the games.
The 90 degree side to side head wags at :51 and :57 are easily my favorite
Sean Lonergan is probably tweeting out "everything happens for a reason" right now.
Is Spike trying to titty twist him there right in the beginning??
Great stuff Ace!!!!
Best part of the video. It's not hazing if he likes it.
That was the best part. Spike seems like my favorite type of troll.
I'll be honest, I never thought it was THAT funny to see the reactions on the OFAATs but this...this is gold. Great work.
The best was when I paused it at :43 and was thrilled that there was over minutes left. So good.
Holstering the gunzzzz after hitting that three...classic
My favorite has to be the "Shootin' Dice" @ 1:30
youtube mixes I've ever seen.
I look forward to Dakich-ing during the upcoming tourney run. I need to study the vast repertoire to drop the right move at the right time.
For comparison purposes.
You know the best part of all of this? It reminds you that behind all the media and coaches and everything else, college basketball is a game and it's played by kids everywhere just like Dakich.
And he's having FUN!
And, obviously, Mr. Dakich.
The Riverdance is my favorite.
I just don't get why all the guys on the court are taking away the focus from his moves. Don't they know why I watch the game?
I'm in the carpool lane with ten minutes to kill and the video isn't showing up on the iPhone app!!! Please send help!
But click the yellow title of the OP at the very top and it will open the full page version where the YouTube embed should work. It just worked for me, at least.
I think we're going to have to redshirt this guy.
I take full credit for starting this trend. You're welcome
say what you want about dan dakich, but he sees a lot of college basketball up close and in person. and i think the fact that he sent his son to Michigan rather than IU speaks volumes about what he thinks of beilein vs. crean.
You would think that Andrew probably had some say in the decision, but given that Dan Dakich was IU's interim coach and Crean didn't offer him a spot on his staff there is probably some animosity there.
Is how often he starts the dances before or as the shot is going up. The force is strong in this one....
Ace wins an Internet today.
*Dakich walks into job interview, pulls out tablet, hits play on compendium...
*"I believe my resume speaks for itself..."
*employer blushes. smiles. breaks out into rapturous applause
So much win. There has to be a way for Dakich to stay forever.
The almost moonwalk is a good one. The river dance one is a little better. But I think that Billy Cosby seizure looking move against Indiana is my favorite.
3 MOAR YEARS!
I was initially hoping that he might be a C.J. Lee/David Merritt type by the time he's a junior and give us some valuable on-the-court minutes. But I have to admit that I kind of don't want Dakich to develop as a hoops player. It would be a shame to see him pulled away from the bench at critical junctures in the game.
Walk-ons for life, bitchezz.
God, this gave me one of those really healthy laughs. It's going to be a good day.
But Dakich has been known to f**k around and get triple doubles
I noticed a couple Horford golf clap celebrations on the edges of the Dakich shots, which make for a fun juxtoposition.
Did anyone else get really confused when he was playing? I kept looking at the bench!!
Give this man a guitar and watch him windmill it.
Love to see him having fun. Sports seems to be getting a way from having fun. If this gets back to him I hope he knows we are not making fun.
He enjoyed it.

Good thing, too, because about half of the team retweeted it. I think they were all on the bus to Indy when it got published.
Great work Ace. As I was watching it I was hoping to read a comment that he had seen this. I've seen enough to know that he's aware he has a cult following now.
This really is what college basketball should be about and it's why I enjoy it more than the pros. I went to a recent Piston game and their was hardly any emotion. I realize they basically suck but in college you get the genuineness in the players you just don't see in the pros.
He a ball paya
I like the leg kick endings that seem to kick the other teams in ass as they go up court.
Oh boy, that nipple pinch from Spike damn near killed me. This was great.
Glad he liked it too (he retweeted it).
As a former MMB member, loved the band like entry cadence clip. Priceless video compilation. Looking forward to seeing Dakich live this weekend.
