it works out the way a similar situation has worked out for the Chicago Blackhawks.

MSU seniors: 2-6 vs Michigan
|5 days 22 hours ago||I concur||
Yes, of course the players need to focus forward, and yes, of course it would be disappointing if they flopped in both tourneys.
|5 days 22 hours ago||So important||
Tourney success is just as much about who is hot as it is about who has the best talent
|5 days 22 hours ago||No doubt||
Just think about how good Kansas was last year, then they ran into a hot UM team with the Nat'l POY and it all ended for them. This year the same could happen to us or any other contender.
|5 days 22 hours ago||Absolutely||
1st outright B10 title in 28 years is a HUGE deal, esp after last year's tourney run and a shared B10 title the year before that. And each of these were accomplished with different key players. WE are now the team that annually reloads...even if we lose Stauskas and GR3 to the NBA, UM still projects for another solid season next year.

Never notice how alike they sound
|6 days 15 hours ago||Two stories||
One: I met a WW2 tanker vet once. He told me about the time his crew got the drop on a German tank whose turret was facing away from them. Unfortunately their shell bounced off the enemy tank. He said there was terrified panic as they scrambled to abandon their tank as the Germans brought their turret around; they managed to escape seconds before their tank was destroyed.

Just an outstanding piece of writing from start to finish.
Pieces like this are why I come here.

Fisher won more NCAA tournament games in that one run than Frieder won in his entire tenure at Michigan

That really was a loooong time ago
|1 week 3 days ago||A co-worker of mine worked for Bobby Knight for several years||
Swears by him to this day.
I had a great fan experience w/UM hoops as a student - started with a B10 title in '86 and ended with the national title in '89. However to a degree I always had Indiana envy. Knight's teams were a lot of fun to watch - almost like a clinic.
Knight's comments in the video r.e. Michigan not always playing hard may seem a tad obnoxious, and you would never hear a coach say something like that publicly today...however they were upset in the 2nd round by Iowa State that year, after having gone 28-4 and having been #2 or #3 most of the season.

It is definitely better to be a Lions fan in Caracas than in Michigan.
One thing I really loved about visiting Venezuela was talking baseball with people. After an event in Valencia I had to travel to Caracas by car. My customer set it up with a personal friend who owned a taxi. I thought I could get some work done on my laptop during the trip but ni modo, pues we wound up talking baseball the whole way.
It was like being home back in Michigan - we ended up about laughing about the Tigers trading Smoltz for Alexander back in the 80's (he may have laughed more than I did).

Saludos. You are right - ignoring the troll is best.

Anyone who could be familiar with this kid's story and not get a little misty at this vid doesn't like ice cream, puppies, Christmas, children, or America.

A meaningless end of reg season Bears vs Bucs game at SF 20+ years ago. -6 degrees F.
|10 weeks 18 hours ago||Yes indeed||
Ohio lost. We can rejoice in that regardless of our circumstances
|10 weeks 1 day ago||As I said...||
...the only thing missing is us (Michigan) having had something to do with this period in Buckeye history not netting any (real) hardware
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Disagree||
Wanting Ohio to lose every single game they play for the rest of eternity is part and parcel of being a Michigan fan.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Sweet||
No national title.
