So I read the MIchigan Daily article debating which team was more disappointing and naturally wanted the opinion of the MGoCommunity on the topic. So let's break down the cases for each.
Basketball: Basketball came in as a top 15 ranked team and coming off of the first NCAA tourney in 11 years. They only lost two walk-ons from the previous year and brought back two of the more explosive players in the Big Ten. Student ticket sales skyrocketed as people anticipated a repeat performance and becoming a regular participant in the NCAA tournament. The team then dropped two of three in Orlando(a tournament where they were co-favorites), lost to a mediocre BC team that lost to Harvard, and blew a 17-pt HOME lead in the biggest dong-punching game since Roy Roundtree was tackled at the one.
Hockey: Hockey had a preseason top 5 ranking and had made the NCAA tournament 19 straight years. They returned the bulk of an excellent defense and Hogan was a seemingly solid returning goalie. The team struggled early culminating in sweeps against MSU and Miami(No not that Miami). The team decided to preemptively try to out dong-punch the basketball team by losing a game where they outshot the opponent 46-13?!?! The team did just come off of a must have sweep against WMU, but that doesn't seem to be enough to save their season.
Well to be honest, I really could care less about hockey but from an objective point of view it appears their season to be much more disappointing. As a fan base I think that hockey is way more important to the average Michigan student(as judged by the fact that even my friends that couldn't name a football position other than QB can break down hockey).
But I would like to put forth the question to the community at large:
Who was more disappointing this season, the hockey team or the basketball team?
