Was living in South Quad. The night of the championship game, some tool thought it would be cute to pull the fire alarm with about 4 minutes left. After unsuccessfully trying to lock ourselves in our room, we went outside. On our way by the old common area, several of us turned all the TVs toward the windows. Outside, people were on each other's shoulders, in trees, standing on anything possible to see. That is where we saw Rumeal hit the winning free throws! We then joined the above mentioned fray! What a night!! Later, was able to acquire a chair from the floor of the Kingdome, signed by Bo and Steve Fisher, which still sits proudly in my basement.

Slogging through other sites comments and mindless talk radio complaints about officials makes reading your well-written, and funny wrap ups all the more enjoyable. Your analysis of the building knowledge that you were watching a special game was evident even at home. That it involved such a special, TEAM made the ending that much more painful. Thanks, again, for your work

And thanks Jordan Morgan. Your anti-pundit work ethic in this tournament was something to behold! We fans are so appreciative of how you played, and how you represented the University! Go Blue!

And I want to give enough time to get offense, experience, etc, but it is hard for me to see how there are ANY bright spots that would give you hope for next year and a willingness to see how that goes...

How this is different from the traditional way of handling this. I would argue that players have aspired for years to wear the notable numbers in Michigan Football history. I'm sure there are some content to keep what is given them, but there is a long history of changing players numbers (#1 especially). I am not sure this is a lot different. I agree, generally, that someone in the future may be less than eager to change. However, I think most players recognize, and embrace, the honor associated with being asked to wear a legacy jersey. That will, necessarily, likely decrease the number of numbers that become legacy in time (as more than one great player gets shifted to a legacy number in the course of the career, but I think that's ok. I also think, though, that it would be fine to not necessarily change current star players to legacy numbers, rather, let new players get those numbers in due course as they come in.

|2 years 10 weeks ago||Bottom Line:||
Championship teams make late free throws. There are other things that contribute to each loss and there are many you can identify in this game, but bottome line- gotta ice the game when the opponent puts you in that position...Still, a great game and a great effort. After wandering for more than a decade in the wilderness of college basketball, this is still preferable to what we have typically talked about after the last regular season game for many of recent years.
As great as Burke is (and he is) I still think this team will be better when they aren't in the position of watching to see what he will do before they do what they are going to do. That trend has increased over the season and is materially related to more inconsistent play.
Still, very proud of this team, and still with tremendous upside over the next few weeks. Go Blue!

Accompanying my wife on a work related outing for a client. I am currently a useless functionary sitting in a chair with tears in my eyes. Prompting speculation from my wife and the worker helping her as to what I could possibly be laughing so hard at. Well done!
