Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
BRING ON THE VOLUNTEERS
i am glad we play the vols but also sad because we could play duke at home in nc but we will see what happens any one trying to go the game i live in va and just looking for some uofm fans to go down to nc with. goblue!!
Neg me if you want, but an 8 seems like a huge overseed.
Also, they kinda fucked us over with that bracket.
Anyone have a good guess as to what time we will be playing on Friday? I hope its later!
holy crap once we beat duke, we will meet steve fisher in the regional championship
I wish we could flip spots with Penn State at the 10 and get Temple, then Steve Fisher in the 2nd round. Duke in Charlotte is not so kind.
Please do not feed the trolls. Repeat. Please do not feed the trolls.
"You're either in Sheen's Korner or you're with the trolls."
Why do you continue to pretend to be a Michigan fan? Do your best Simple Jack and go full troll.
THANK GOD Kyrie Irving is still on the bench. Nolan Smith and Seth Curry will be tough enough to guard alone.
*fingers crossed that we beat Tenn first, of course*
OH, I'M SORRY. HOW ABOUT A JOKE MATCHUP AGAINST FLORIDA IN THE SECOND ROUND.
Some idiot just picked Belmont to beat Whiskey.
Because that's impossible...
If you've seen Belmont play, that isn't an outrageous pick in the slightest. Terrible draw for Wisconsin.
That Idiot is spot on. Belmont only lost 4 games all season 3 to SEC teams on their floor and one against the school that is 5 miles from their campus in conference. I saw them play live against East Tennessee State. They go ten deep they have huge white guys and about 6 guys that can drain 3's all day long. They will be a matchup nightmare for Wiscy and I also think they'll beat them.
I'm tellin' you they're good, best Atlantic Sun team I've seen in quite awhile. Every bit as good as the ETSU team that took number 1 seed Pitt to the wire two years ago.
Please do not respond to MfaninOH. He is a troll. Thanks for your cooperation.
I just ran into my front yard screaming, Yessss !!!!!!! here in Kingsport, Tn. C'mon Wolverines you must win it and help me put a stop to all the damn Peyton Manning should have won the Heisman in 1997 crap. Make the SEC pay !!!!!!
Dude you keep telling people not to feed the troll, but you keep responding to him. If your going to tell other people not to respond to him then you probably shouldn't respond either.
I've lived here for the last 29 years, they will never, EVER, EVER, get over that, Which malkes it even more fun to bring it up. If, god forbid, Michigan doesn't win this B-ball game I can assure you the first thing out of my mouth will be... "but who won the Heisman in 1997 !!!!!!"
When they played UT (as in "you can't spell 'guilty' without UT) in football a few years ago, Michigan saw it as a bowl game while UT saw it as a bitter rivalry game. Hopefully, Michigan will be aware of how much UT still hates them for "stealing Peyton Manning's Heisman."
They forget that the only reason Michigan had to share the MNC during Woodson's Heisman year was because Manning laid down and died against Nebraska, helping make Osborne's plea for the sympathy vote effective.
This argument works better down there as "If Manning deserved the Heisman, he wouldn't have quit in the bowl game against Nebraska."
Tater, those reasons and the reason some coach( I'm betting on that ass-hat Fulmer) voted Michigan below the top 4 and they were a point or two short of winning both titles.
Oh, man. We got overseeded and I don't like it. Duke is not a good match up for us. I think we can take care of Tennessee but Duke? I dunno know..unless, Duke loses to a 16th seed haha
If this happens, your quote will be my signature.
Who got it done this year. We did not get the most favorable venue, but this team will fight to the end and make us proud.
It is Great to be a Michigan Wolverine!!!!!
Colorado bites the big one. Little surprised with the Last Four In but all of them teams under consideration were pretty bad.
Colorado the big surprise though. I had them as a lock.
Could have gone either way to be honest. All 3 of BC, Clemson, and VaTech were right on the edge.
Try to ruin my good mood.
If i were a Recruit... the Michigan viewing party looked the most fun! A loud Crisler, with the team sitting courtside in comfortable lounge chairs... looking like celebrities.
Who are really big and/or those who shoot the 3 really well. Tennessee is not a huge team and they do not appear to shoot the ball well. They have some bad losses including College of Charleston, and Charlotte, and they were beaten by Oakland at home. I think we should be able to take care of business against them. If we get to Duke, that is another story.
Just looked up tickets for all the 2nd and 3rd round sites and the games in Charlotte are listed as 12:00 & 6:00 P.M. I am pulling for the 6PM start!
EDIT: Forgot there are 2 games from the East region too in Charlotte
If you'd have told me we'd be an 8 seed in the NCAA tourney, I'd have called the Betty Ford clinic and told them to check for any missing patients who fell off the wagon.
Sorry to break off topic a bit, but does anyone have a video of the reaction at Crisler when Michigan was announced?
Beat the Vols!
Beat the Vols!
Beat the Vols!
Beat the Vols!
A prediction rang true. The drought is over. Go Blue! Beat the Vols!
That 1 year drought was brutal.
So True! =]
Nice lets take out that cheater coach and send him directly to unemployed fate that awaits him!
I don't mind the matchup against Tenn. 8 seed is higher than expected, but who cares.
Also, Crisler looked pretty excited when they showed it on TV. Looked like fun. Wish I hadn't graduated already, because I would've been there.
"Wish I hadn't graduated already, because I would've been there."
I find myself saying this too often.
Why are people freaking out about Duke?
Michigan played No.1 Ohio State closely all 3 times we played, took another No. 1 to OT in Kansas, and we beat a more talented Duke team with a less talented (of course, all my opinion) Michigan team.
I like the matchup.
Gotta beat Tennessee though, seriously.
If we're really "up" for the game, I think we have a decent chance at winning in the second round. Duke isn't an invulnerable team by any stretch of the imagination, but it's still going to take excellent shooting and much better rebounding than we saw vs. Ohio State for us to have a chance at beating Duke.
