The problem is there wasn't enough time to keep competing. If it had happened with like 60 seconds left, fine, man up and finish the game. But that call essentially turned it into a free throw shooting contest with Arizona being spotted one point.
I do agree about the mental composure though, there were times when our guys tried to do a little too much. But the only way to get better at that is to live through it, and in the past year and a half nobody on this team really did because, as you alluded to, the ball would be in Burke's hands.

Burned by a questionable call at the end. Honestly this was the best looking game from this team this year. Zona made some adjustments and came out strong in the second half, as you would expect them to. If that foul doesn't get called, or Caris grabs that board, Michigan wins.
This one was tough, but if you look at the losses so far there isn't one to be ashamed of. Iowa St. on the road (undefeated), Duke on the road (nobody is allowed to win there), a loss on the third day of a tournament that took place outside of this country, on a buzzer beater, and a home loss to the number one and undefeated Wildcats. As long as we keep improving we'll be fine.

Yea less rowdy for sure. Part of the problem was that there were so many freshmen in the closer rows that had no clue what to do. They didn't know chants, or when to get loud, etc. I swear there was a 3rd down when we were on defense and everyone around me was sitting down.

These are real classy. How an alternate uni should be if you ask me.

I'm a uniform nerd so this was really cool. But I have to say, even though I hated them at first, the UTL jerseys were very well done. Classy, not over the top, and as a previous poster said, it brings back the emotion of that game just from seeing them.

Free throws will be huge in this game, especially down the stretch

I'm ok with it BECAUSE it isn't a huge game for us. The players get to have fun for a week in Florida, celebrate their season of hard work done in the classroom and on the field, and play an exhibition game, which at the end of the day doesn't mean much.
If it was the Rose Bowl or National Championship I'd want to remember Michigan wearing something more traditional. This isn't, so I'm cool with whatever, as long as the players enjoy it.

I've changed my stance on the uniformz trend. I used to hate any changes, but now I'm at the point where I can live with a couple alternates given two conditions. 1) are the players excited about wearing them? and 2) is the team recognizable on tv?
I wasn't a fan of may of the alts so far, the UTL being the exception, but there was never any doubt watching the games who was playing. The brand remains strong. On top of this, Denard was quoted as being really excited about wearing these so I don't see any problems.

I for one am just really happy that we're talking about a guy potentially getting a KR for a TD. I remember in the not so distant past being nervous every time we had to recieve a punt or kickoff, since nobody seemed to be able to catch the ball.

Good stuff. I'm especially excited to see Gardner at WR, someone with his athleticism needs to be on the field. I wouldn't be surprised to see him make a few throws from there this season either.
Also, fantastic news about Norfleet after all the suffering on special teams over the past few years.

I think in general the internet has changed the game, and made the job of the head coach significantly tougher. Instead of simply being able to handle things "in house" so to speak, the public gets to make a snap judgment about what should happen when athletes inevitably mess up. The instant they so much as gets a parking ticket, it's on twitter, message boards, etc. It seems today that the only thing we don't know is what happens behind closed doors, at practices and team meetings, and as such the public is led on to speculate endlessly on what should happen based on limited information.

That was unreal. This is the kind of thing that they should play on the scoreboards before the game to get people fired up.

Same here. Every time it's on BTN I get totally sucked in, and all the emotions I had in the rollercoaster that was the end of that game come flooding back to me. Amazing.
