They won 26 games, won the Big Ten tournament, made the Sweet Sixteen, and finally went down in a close if ugly game. This team gave us a great ride in these last weeks. I'll remember them fondly.
|7 hours 55 min ago||I totally agree...||
...that the most difficult part of this is that we won't get to see them play together again. This was a very fun group to watch. They gave us a joyful ride. And they put Michigan basketball firmly back on the map - if it ever was off it. Michigan didn't just get lucky with a single group. None of these guys played on the Final Four team. This is undeniably a very good program now. There will likely be more good days.

That made three tournaments, made two Sweet Sixteens, won a Big Ten regular season title, and won a Big Ten tournament. And they gave us this very fun end to this season. They will be missed.

Thought so but wasn't sure. Thanks.

Was it his wrist?

...of why Harbaugh is an excellent leader. A leader seeks to build people up, not tear them down.

...saying "let it go."

There is a tremendous amount of domestic violence in the U.S. and in the world, but that doesn't mean Lewis did or did not do anything here. She has a story. He has a story. Seems like there is agreement that there was physical contact when he was in the closet. He may be guilty of assault. He may not be.

It was in the Legends Classic in NYC.

Good point indeed.
|4 days 13 hours ago||I started laughing at the end of the game||
I thought Louisville was a play or two from running away with the game a couple of times. And it sometimes seemed like Michigan would never get a rebound or a clean look from three. I'm still not quite sure how they won. To borrow Coach Beilein's analogy, it's as if they were down a bunch of runs and then started hitting single after single after single. And then they were somehow ahead. And then they won, and Louisville and their slick coach and their team of giants were done.
Can anyone remember another team whose mental toughness grew this much in two months? They've gone from deflating to inspirational in something like six weeks.
|4 days 13 hours ago||We're rooting for you with all of that||
You're a good guy, Mr. King.

Two Big Ten regular season titles
I'll take it!
|4 days 15 hours ago||Go Blue!||
Das ist gut!!!!!!!!!
|4 days 15 hours ago||Apologies for my thread about the refs at halftime||
I thought a tech was in order.
|4 days 15 hours ago||Woohoo!!!!!||
I'm not sure how that happened! Sweet Sixteen!
|6 days 14 hours ago||That was bonkers and stressful and great||
Ok. State was seemingly carving Michigan up for a long time. And they never stopped owning the offensive glass. But then Michigan decided to hit an absurd number of threes. It seems like it shouldn't have worked, but here we are.
|6 days 14 hours ago||Michigan mostly wasn't shooting open threes||
And several of them were from pretty deep.
|6 days 15 hours ago||Holy hell||
|6 days 20 hours ago||Just FYI||
You're both going to hell.
|1 week 17 hours ago||Can't hurt but probably won't help much||
But I'm done worrying about it.
|1 week 20 hours ago||I'm not a fan of "they" either...||
...for the the same reason you aren't. But I wonder if I'm being a stick in the mud over something very small.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Is this person...||
...helping Michigan win and not cheating? If yes, then glad to have you and go Blue!
|1 week 1 day ago||I'm not familiar with Michigan law, but...||
...generally speaking there are different leves of assault. I think I remember Adrian Arrington being charged with assault for wrestling the keys to his car out of his girlfriend's hands.
|1 week 1 day ago||I have no idea about Michigan, but...||
...I remember there being at least one state in which an officer had to make an arrest if responding to a DV call.
|1 week 3 days ago||My takeaway:||
Michigan won the Big Ten Tournament!
|1 week 3 days ago||Michigan as one of the top ten teams in the country||
I don't know enough about the rest of college basketball to say whether that's true. But I was struck by the end of the tournament by the fact that there was nothing flukey or streaky about Michigan's win. This was not a group of plucky upstarts who skated by on good luck to an improbable victory. I think Michigan would win the tournament again if you replayed it. This team is just plain good. And they carry themselves like they know they're good.
|1 week 4 days ago||His improvement has been so fun to watch||
I'm not sure I've seen a player change his career arch so quickly. Mr. Walton has more in him than many of us realized.
|1 week 4 days ago||I'm not predicting anything, but...||
...I'm not concerned about the seeding. Winning today was no fluke. This team is ready to go toe-to-toe with all comers. !Queme los barcos!
|1 week 4 days ago||Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!||
