"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

Good early morning from Korea. We have yet to be bombed and Michigan beat Kansas. That's how I like to start my mornings. Breakfast? Pancakes from chef Prince.
What an amazing game. I woke up needing to satisfy my euphoria with more content and found some fan videos taken from the stadium that you might enjoy:
This is from a Michigan fan courtside, sitting with a bunch of Kansas fans. Low quality, a little slow, finger on the lens... but the payoff is worth it! Also, it's cool to see how the huge video screen shows highlights from different angles.
This is a short video from high up in the rafters. This place is huge! The screen, again, changes the way people watch the game, I'm sure. Spoiler: Trey hits a 3 pointer.
This last video is just for the joy of it. Short, terrible quality, vertical video of a Kansas fan's pain. It's like seeing the evil twin in the mirror, and he is not us. (NSFW language)
Lastly, there are tons of articles which I will be enjoying all day. I loved this one up at UMHoops.com: An oral history of Michigan's comback win over Kansas. Read it!
Josh Bartelstein: “There was a timeout, I think we were down like 14. We brought everyone together and said ‘let’s do something special’. That’s what the message had to be: let’s do something special and let’s have people talk about this game forever. They’re going to talk about it forever now.”
Robinson: “The biggest thing (Burke) said that I took in was, ‘Believe.’ Just that. ‘We’re not losing this game. We’re going to come back and win this. We can’t go home without a victory.’ I believed him.”
I'm looking for Michigan locker room celebration type of videos (or vs. VCU for that matter). Anybody see anything? Share your post game videos, stories, favorite articles here.
