What a difference 15 years make. ESPN classic showed a Michigan vs. Michigan State game from the 95' season. Michigan players included; King and Jackson from the fab five, Dugan Fife, Maurice Taylor, and Baston. Michigan State had Respert, and Snow.
The game was incredible. It was ridiculous how high Jackson could jump. What I was blown away by was the amount of athleticism displayed throughout the Michigan line up.
Soon after watching the 95' Wolverines the current version came on TV. Only Sims would have been capable of starting if it were 95' again. Harris could have come off the bench. The rest would be watching with the student section (imo). After 95 I left the great state of Michigan, became a poor college student, moved around a bunch and have just started to follow M basketball again thanks to the internet and satelite tv. So I ask this profound and well thought out question that the blog community can answer for me. WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED?
