We have come far enough as a program this year that we don't need muppets for winning our opening round game. We expected to win this game. Duke... would earn muppets, but not this. I truly believe that the program turned a corner today and took another step. We went from people thinking 10 wins for the year was optimistic to this. Hail. Kalin Lucas, er, Tennessee, get the F off our court.
Let there be no muppets for this
I'm still in shock! Had to go to work and follow this game online. Called my son at home to confirm that I wasn't hallucinating the final score!
To late look at the front page.
who's State got in the 2nd round :P
Tampa to Lansing.
Did you expect to win by 30?
I'm just trying to raise expectations. This is a good team. A team that has a legit shot at a national title. Hail.
No, it doesn't
Whatevs, I still want my muppets.
MOAR MUPPETS!!!!1111 MOAR WINS!!!!
Understand where you're coming from but this team that wasn't projected to make the NIT is now in the "Third" Round of the NCAA's. Muppets appropriate.
a 30-POINT THRASHING in an 8-9 tournament game? For every Muppets you refuse to watch after that I will watch 3.
If we drop Duke, I'll post them myself if I have to. I just don't think that Stu Douglassing Tennessee is muppet worthy anymore. We need to raise the bar and our expectations. This isn't FYS football where we riot after each and every win over the MAC. This is Michigan. We are the Leaders and Best. Not only are we in the tournament, we're a couple of wins from a national title. Believe!
The only thing we need to do is enjoy the heck out of everything this team does. Leave your expectations for the offseason.
First off, Tennessee is far from MAC level, even if that was just an analogy. Second, did you just compare rioting to videos of muppets? Tennessee was a decent team and we ran them out of the gym to the tune of the largest margin of victory in an 8-9 tournament game ever. I'll listen to muppets if I god damn want to
What the hells' wrong with you. You don't feel like celebrating? You don't feel happyhappyjoyjoy? Check your pulse I think you are dead.
And one last thing...........
Peyton couldn't carry Woodson's jock!!!!!!
Take that you creamsicle colored scrubs!
...every win is gravy. Muppets ahoy!
Yeah geez don't enjoy this win too much it's not like we had a huge run to end the season just to make the tournament with a bunch of underclassmen and two juniors.
Michigan just provided the largest margin of victory ever in an 8 vs 9 seed game. Also, Michigan just became the first team ever to win a tournament game with zero made free throws. And all that from one of the youngest teams in the nation, and a team that wasn't seriously expected to make the tournament. If this isn't an occasion for Muppets, then there is no occasion for Muppets.
Maybe we have reached that point, but a schalacking by 30?? Ill take muppets all day.
NCAA Tournament win = Muppets. Period.
Let's never become Kansas with their tepid response to the bracket unveiling. A tournament berth and a tournament win are ALWAYS exciting, period.
Fuck you and your insufferable arrogance. Not celebrating a win? I don't care how many times we win, every single one of them should incorporate celebration. "Raising standards" my ass.
For many teams, the opening round is the toughest game they will have in the tournament. That's obviously not us, but it's plain stupid to write off "opening round" as some sort of gimme.
Taking wins for granted makes you an asshole. No exceptions. I thought the past three (four!) years would have taught us that.
Our guys did what all of us knew they could do. Thanks for a momentous victory, now on to the next round.
So, we turned a corner today...how is that not deserving of muppets?
After O$U, Sparty and the Irish - there is no team I enjoyed a victory over more the these Oransicles. Muppets commence!
You can have my muppets when you pry them from my cold, dead fingers. Enjoy your cold shower buzz killington, but this victory, and each subsequent one, deserves videos of Jim Hensons arm up Kermits a$$ singing songs of celebration.
WE'LL JUST USE MORE MUPPETS WHEN WE BEAT DUKE
