A first round tournament loss. Um, okay, it happens. The Ohio U. Bobcats played very, very well. Michigan's '11-'12 team, which played some good games this year to grab a share of the regular season record title, was just slumping at year's end. I didn't start this to debate probabilities or even to argue about why Michigan lost this basketball game.
I only wanted to point out the inherent, ironic humiliation that now accompanies the "Ohio" meme, which fans (as opposed to football team members, apparently, and employees of the Athletic Department) can easily discard if they wish to. Brady Hoke isn't going to require us to do pushups if we accidentally say, "State."
