"What (Michigan coaches) told me is that they're focusing on point guards right now, but if anything opens up, they'll definitely come back on and recruit me as hard as they were," said Towns

Was coaching baseball in Galesburg when it hit. Pretty freaky. Giving the team a post game speech when it rumbled the grounds.

Once worked on a Habitat build outside Atlanta in August. Temps were usually mid 80s and humid that week. Invariably the Georgia locals would be laughing at us Northerners who weren't "used to this heat up there." Now that week was relatively cool for a Georgian August but nothing was funnier than telling them that Michigan tends to be 90s and humid every August too. They imagined it was 50s & 60s mid summer.

Water polo was my first beat when at the daily. It was so difficult to get quotes and stats bc it was all phone calls. Two seasons covering them and they usually were about .500 and played on east coast constantly.

Mid 80s. My dad was a computer programmer back then and had me programming on our C64. Then had a 476 with turbo button too and logged into prodigy to get data downloads. Just text! Probably 87/88. Before that we did lots of those touch tone info numbers...like get sports scores or weather reports. Essentially it was the internet on a phone!

Refs etc but two huge plays turned things. The Winslow charge would've completely deflated duke. And the missed replay leading to a 3. Those two things get called correctly and the rest go dukes way and badgers may win

Erin Harris is talented but he's a volume scorer who will either dominate usage or be less impactful by not getting enough looks. Swanigan would def help rebuild. I think trice has been their heart the last couple years. They lose more than shooting with him.

It's interesting to see state outplay their seed bc so often they've underplayed it as a 1, 2 or 3. They truly play better as an underdog. Give izzo credit, this is his least talented team in about 5-6 years. Those better ones hadn't been to a final four.

These are just the "new" items, which essentially try to push the boundaries of taste and sucker those want something not available before. These are the chicken whoppers of gear

vs. the Big House. It's nice as a nickname, but it's overused now.
"get off my lawn"
which reminds me of the thing I miss the most about the old stadium: trees and grass
lots of halftimes during college spent smoking cigarettes and/or "..." out there

Of these players for never giving up. They were in over their heads most of the season.
They gave up some leads they gritted their way to having. They learned. They fought.
They made us proud that they are OURS.
And yet we expected more...some of us at least. And that's the sign of a program that is back.
