VaTech, BC and Colorado got snubbed, in my view.
Michigan In, Versus Tennessee
May not be the best placing Michigan could have gotten but oh well. They are in. Someone has to be beat the 1 seeds, why not Michigan? Michigan played right with Kansas and OSU this year.
AAAAAAAAAAARGH, WE PLAYED TOO WELL!!!!!!
Six weeks ago even getting in was a pipe dream. Any tourney experience sets us up so well for next year. Besides, if we get past UT, Duke isn't as good as tOSU and we've played them tight all year.
Six weeks ago, would we have been estatic with an eight seed . . . in the NIT.
The team flat out played their way out of a hole and into the Tourney. Keep the momentum going.
the crowd at Crisler puts the rest of the country to shame. The images of our '09 reaction were all over the TV the last few days.
BTW, where can I get one of those comfy leather chairs the team lounges around on?
They actually have similar looking chairs that they sell at MDen.
All Michigan-themed of course.
They're expensive but awesome.
Check out the upstairs of the MDen on State Street.
Can we reflect on the fact that this team earned a flipping 8 SEED?
Bravo, Michigan. Bravo.
but I'll take it....go blue!
I DONT CARE THAT WE MOVED UP TO AN 8 SEED AND WOULDA SHOULDA COULDA WISHED WE GOT A DIFFERENT DRAW!
I AM FREAKING PUMPED ABOUT WHAT THIS TEAM IS ACCOMPLISHED!
WERE THE FOURTH HIGHEST SEED FROM THE BIG TEN BECAUSE WERE THE FOURTH BEST TEAM IN THE BIG TEN, ONE OF THE BEST CONFERENCES IN THE NATION!
IF WE WANT TO RETURN TO BEING A DOMINANT BASKETBALL PROGRAM WE HAVE TO PLAY AND BEAT THE BEST!
LETS TAKE DOWN TENNESSEE ON OUR WAY TO BEATING DUKE IN FRONT OF A HOME CROWD!
LET'S SHOCK THE WORLD YO!!!!!!
Sorry for the CAPS, but I am just tired of people wishing things were different. We should all be thrilled with what went down today.
going off on the Committee is one of the greatest things I've ever seen.
(Probably legit in this particular case.)
Anyone else think we are playing Duke in 2nd round as their chance to get even with the Fab Five coments we are going to see tonight at 9 pm????
Already got tickets to the West Regional in Anaheim (set up about a year ago). If Michigan beats Duke to get there my head will literally explode (because that much cocaine will do that, or so I was told as a teenager).
Thanks to the team for some great ball and a great season. This group will be remembered. Some of their magic has already rubbed off onto the gridiron - I feel a renewed since of optimism and pride.
It's always great to be a Wolverine, but some days are greater than others. Today is one of those days. And it looks as if there will be many more such days in coming soon. Go Blue.
The guy who walked us out of the wilderness? Hail yes.
Hell of an accomplishment. Can't wait for the Volunteers. Bring it.
Purdue as a 3
Michigan as an 8
Illinois as a 9
Penn State and Michigan State as 10s
Sincerely, Big Ten
