that's why they call it MONEY.

Let's also be clear: there were a number of other games last year that really decreased everyone's confidence in the team.
Hard to ignore near losses to U Conn, Akron, Northwestern, and just plain losses to Nebraska, Iowa, PSU. I won't even mention MSU...
The team just looked bad most of last year.
The OSU game, unexpectedly, was quite different, and actually encouraging. It did leave one w/ the feeling: where has THAT team been all year?

The reason I did a diary on this topic was to show ALL the percentages, and see how outcomes change as a result:
That said, one thing missing from this whole line of thinking is psychology. The psychology of Kentucky on the last shot was *no pressure* -- miss and you just go to OT. If UM had fouled, the psychology changes to *serious, high-pressure* -- miss the free throws, you might lose, and make them, and you STILL might lose on a three.
I think we could have turned the tables on a young team and given ourselves a better chance by fouling, and the numbers *and* the psychology agree.

that's why I did this diary:

Beilein is clearly leagues ahead of Fisher + Frieder.
I lived through those eras, and only now do I know what it's like to have a coaching advantage.

Were at the bonus. Next foul would have been a 1 and 1

Great season; rough way to go out. UM almost stole the game -- imagine if Walton's three had been about two inches longer. "What if?" is how the season ends in the Tourney. What effort by all the guys; check out Caris flying through the air to grab a rebound and still making a pass while going to the ground. Very proud of the effort and the team. Michigan basketball is something to behold.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Personal opinion||
Banners should be for real accomplishment. Winning the Big Ten - yes. Winning Big Ten Tourney - yes. Winning NCAA Tourney - yes. Everything else, not so much. Wouldn't mind a single banner to summarize lesser accomplishments, e.g., "NCAA Tournament, Years X,Y,Z" or whatever.
I frankly hate the celebration of Final Fours, because what other sports congratulate the semifinal competitors so much? It is just dumb. Of course, I may be biased by all the Izzo-related love on this topic.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||great post!||
What you're talking about is the culture of a program, which is built on hard work of individuals. No matter how great a coach, there is nothing like a little peer pressure; seeing your teammates work their asses off is a great motivator. Glad to see we have some of that too, but wow it is hard not to be impressed with Wisky.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||what's weird||
about this thread is the number of people who are waiting to hear the MSU reaction to the Kentucky injury. Who cares what Sparty thinks?
Feel bad for the kid, hope his ankle is OK, and hope we can send him (and his teammates) home to recover.

that was weird

Did your friend say "think your great" or "think you're great" because that makes all the difference as to whether your friend is truly a dumb guy.

if Roddy didn't want to pay up, he shouldn't have made the offer.

Tennessee and then the winner of UL/UK is a tough weekend.
That said, if we get past the former, the latter may be quite spent....

I guess he doesn't think that well of UI-Chicago.

After Webber and co. beat them (1993) a number of fans shook my hand and muttered good game.

then watch this:
|5 weeks 12 hours ago||give me a break||
as much as i love to hate the guy (and the team), what is the point of this?
|5 weeks 2 days ago||you have to agree||
it would be some kind of crazy intensity if it were an MSU/UM final. However sweet that kind of game would be, the thought of possibly losing it is so awful that I'd much rather see MSU go out early and in embarrassing fashion.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||yes||
yes indeed. I THOUGHT YOUR SITE GUARANTEED SUCCESS.
you should include other data like kenpom, etc.
cool site btw.
