As we shift our collective focus to football I wanted to put together a tribute video of sorts focusing on the MBB tournament runs of the past 2 years. Hope you enjoy it. Go Blue!
MBB Tribute Video
Great video. Wow have I had fun watching Michigan basketball play these last 2-3 years. Easily my favorite team to follow over that time period.
PS: I love in the opening clip how everyone is participating, especially Mitch, except Horford, who just has this amused look on his face the whole time. Classic Jon.
Very nice. This serves as a rather good summation of what we've been privileged to witness in the last couple years here, and hopefully these videos only get more numerous and lengthier from this point forward. This program is in an excellent place right now and the fact that we can watch tribute / highlight videos like this is evidence of that.
A great reminder of just how much fun Michigan basketball has become
I made the mistake as a Michigan fan taking the football program for granted up until the RichRod era when things went south, and now I am making sure that I haven't taken this era of Michigan basketball for granted because we don't know when it will end. Go Blue!
That 3 pointer by Burke at 3:20 in the video was literally from the parking lot.
No it wasn't.
Thanks for the awesome vid!
I've had the incredible good fortune and good timing of having been a grad student here at UM these past two years. While not previously a UM fan, following the team has been one of (if not THE) top highlight of my grad school experience.
While other teams may have won more over these past two years, I cannot imagine any other program that I'd want to support more than this one. Kudos to Coach Beilein (who I met at Pizza House a couple weeks back!) and the whole program that he's built around himself.
I always complain that clips don't make sense or the they don't match the music...you did both beautifully. Random clips or random ordering can completely ruin a video no matter how good it is. This was incredible.
This sums up the past two years of (tournament) Michigan Basketball perfectly with smiles and tears. I love both of those teams, I don't expect us always to get to the Elite 8...but I hope we always have a great group of guys, who play hard, get the most out of their abilities, represent the University well, and have fun.
Watching Michigan Basketball the past two years has been like watching your all-time favorite TV show. Even though you know how it ends...part of you wants to go back and start it all over and do it again. I know I would. It was just SO much fun.
It's GREAT. To BE. A MICHIGAN WOOOLVERINE!
Thanks again man, this was special. Hope you get some credit or recognition for the job you did.
Awesome doesn't even begin to describe that. You did an outstanding job on that video. I say bump it to the front page!! Well done.
"We lift a lot of weights around here. We not about to get punked." God I'm going to miss JMo.
I'm gonna miss JMo
Whoa Zak is so calm on the court.... didnt realize he had so much swag off the court. I was excited to see him drive the rim in one of those NCAA games (I think it was Tenn). I think he is next in line in #NotJustAShooter ! And looks to be taking an early stab at future leader.
p.s. great job on the video, thats a lot of work to put together 3-10 second clips from various sources to cover 7 minutes.
Also had a lot of footage I'd never seen before.
And people say sports don't mean anything in the big picture. I get so much joy and happiness watching these young men play the game of basketball, and watching them go out and play. Call it madness or whatever but this team means something to me. There is nothing greater than being a Michigan Wolverine.
This needs to be front paged. Incredible video.
Fantastic! Thanks for the effort in putting this together. Well done!
Amazing video, thanks so much! I don't even know where half that footage came from, haha! The past two years have been a wild ride. I'll never know what it feels like to be a UM basketball player, but it looks like they've had some fun!! I love the shots of them showing their pride too, Trey holding out his jersey, Tim thumping his chest. They are Michigan Men and I hope they always stay connected to the program. I can't wait for basketball season this fall!!
Ok so I just watched it again. I saw at least two clips of Irvin making threes and I saw a great pass from Walton to Levert. I also saw the pure joy on Mitch McGary's face as he slapped hands with fans while he ran back towards a tunnel. That is the feeling I will never feel, that's the feeling I think brings back so many players who could be drafted. I really hope one, two, or three of them come back next year! I'm sure NBA players have fun too, and feel pride in their team, but I just can't be convinced that it's the same as it is in college. I also love Coach B's expression during the B1G championship celebration. It's a mix of satisfaction, and joy, and it's amazing. When you've been working towards something for so long, to see it come to fruition - that's a feeling I've experienced and it's amazing, and his face captures it perfectly!
I believe it was after the Kansas game...but it gets me every time.
And then when Woodson slides into the picture and J-Mo isn't paying attention until the last second and he points at him like "OH SHIT! THAT'S CHARLES WOODSON!" and then poses again with everyone else. I always get a kick out of that. Especially with Morgan being from Detroit and knowing exactly who it is.
Very well done, but I feel like Walton and Horford should have a few clips. Just to chronicle all the key guys who were a part of these runs. That's nitpicking though. Awesome video.
Derrick hit a ton of huge shots this year; the and-1's against MSU and a couple half-court shots come to mind immediately. I'm also surprised he didn't make the video.
I missed Walton too, but this is a tournament video. Did he have any big shots this year in the tournament? I don't remember.
Oh. My bad. Yeah, quite a few 3's. I think he hit one right after we were down 7 vs Kentucky pretty late. Not a huge oversight I guess.
Great first scene.
Especially when they all go crazy right before he says "then they better stay down!"
Man u nailed it! One of if not THE Best Ive seen...I needed to see that this morning..Its a gray drizzly day here in Atlanta on the day of the NC Game..I rewatched the Tenn and Ky games and I cant say how PROUD I am to be a Michigan Wolverine. in the last 2 yrs weve won a outright Big Title, Final Four, NC game, Elite 8 and are 8-2 amongst some of the elite programs in the nation. I believe this is just the beginning and the best is yet to come..In my wildest dreams I know we will lose a player or two to the NBA but one can only imagine how great this team would be if all three came back...its been a incredible ride the last 2 years..GO BLUE!
I hope that "I hope y'all feel reallllll slighted" becomes an Mgoblog saying.
And we change that ugly font.
