They sure do like to play with our emotions. What a comeback. Just... wow.

and plays eight freshmen in their rotation...just something about playing in Bloomington that has griped Michigan for years. Even with the great Fab Five teams...alway come up empty. But this time Michigan had the Savannah ST comeback in their backpocket...I never sweated for one minute that they wouldn't comeback.
holy hell this was a wild game. go blue!
for all those who will say that IU is horrible (which they are) and how bad we played (which we did), we definately shoulkd be proud of this one-- Assembly Hall is still a tough place to play, a 20 pt comeback is a good thing against anybody, and this is a game that under Amaker we would have folded and lost by 30. Instead, we pick up a road win in the Big Ten (which does counteract that loss to wiscy at home a bit)... a tourney bid possible at 9-9 in the Big 10 and more than probably at 10-8. Any road win helps that goal.
The biggest thing me here (and with Savanah St to some extent) is that Michigan Basketball of the last 10 years would NEVER have won that game. They might have made some sort of comeback to pull with 5 or 10 points, but definitely would not have gotten the win. That is the biggest difference between this team and the last 10 years
