|4 days 7 hours ago||The step-back 3 at WI is my favorite||
1. Degree of difficulty
2. Game situation
3. Rivalry context (Beilein hadn't won in WI)
4. Schedule context (3 W's vs top 10 teams in 8 days)
|4 days 7 hours ago||Yup||
I wonder if Horford's departure had anything to do with confirming him in the direction he was already leaning. He might have been looking at the possibility of more emergency duty at the 4 had he stayed.
Godspeed to you both, lads. You played a major role in the restoration of Michigan basketball. Thank you, good luck, and please come back to visit every now and then if you can.

"for millions of dollars" at the end of the NBA scenario
|1 week 6 days ago||Actually||
I would probably go over the table on them, rip the pen out of their hands, and scribble my name on that contract b/f they had a chance to change their minds
|1 week 6 days ago||I suppose||
that on that criteria there must be a tipping point. The potential additional $ to be had by waiting and improving draft position would have to be enough to offset a full year of not getting paid anything
|1 week 6 days ago||Can you imagine||
Jr Nik playing with healthy Jr Mitch and Jr GR3?
|1 week 6 days ago||I concur with the general consensus||
that no one can be faulted for taking the $, as most of us certainly would.
|1 week 6 days ago||Love it||
A great reminder of just how much fun Michigan basketball has become
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Could not agree more||
'89 was my senior year. That team played like a gigantic weight had fallen from their shoulders when Frieder left
|2 weeks 6 days ago||OK||
I guess I see a difference between painful disappointment and anger. I feel the former, not the latter.
I would feel angry if we'd gotten jobbed by a bad call, or a dirty play, etc. Kid on the other team hit a high-dificulty shot for the game?
I tip my hat and move on.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||A superlative season||
Having lost 3 starters from last year's NCAA runner-up team, they won our 1st outright B10 title of the 3-pt-line era, beat three top 10 teams in 8 days, swept MSU in the regular season, had the B10 POY, and lost a thriller to a good team in the Elite 8.
Nothing but kudos for our guys. Kudos by the truckload.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Yes||
Impossible to be angry about how it ended. Our guys forced a long and well-contested three, the other kid just made a great shot.
It's not like we got crushed - just on the wrong end of a classic game between two very good teams
|3 weeks 1 day ago||So?||
Honestly, in terms of cheering for a team, what difference does it make?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Walmarty Sparty?||

I'm 46 and was a senior in '89. The possibility of not making the field never occurred to us. I did take it for granted that we would always be there. Never again!

...and later Rose Bowl MVP of an undefeated national champion.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||We did not lose to them in 2007||
It was an elaborate anti-Michigan media hoax, perpetrated with CGI and a massive disinformation campaign.
Anyone presenting any kind of "evidence" or "eyewitness testimony" to the contrary is just part of the cover-up.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||8 turnovers?||
That is unusual for us
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Then just remember the "little sister" chants in EL last fall||
Or the "We own Crisler" chants during the Time of Darkness.
What would be sweeter than beating the Spartans in Dallas?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||THE KNOWLEDGE||
is a tad too mystical for my taste.
I prefer the objective, data-driven empiricism of SCIENCE.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Oh||
I stand corrected
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Now I ask you||
how much fun would that be?
|4 weeks 4 days ago||No||
The immutable laws of Maximum Revenge Extraction demand they advance farther
|4 weeks 5 days ago||True that||
Actually, if memory serves, the talking heads all had us going down to VCU in the 2nd round...
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Love the Spartan-hate||
but I respectfully disagree. So much of March Madness is about who is hot at the right time. From their three BTT games it looks to me like they are hitting a rythmn. Don't forget they dominated Wiscy, too.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Hearty congratulations||
Your seniors just improved their record vs Michigan to 3-6
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I remember that like it was yesterday||
Then when Frieder quit/got fired 2 days b/f the tourney started, I thought "Well, I guess that's the end of that..."
What followed was the most unexpected and thrilling championship run I've ever witnessed by a team I cheered for.
Beilein will have the lads in the right frame of mind come go time - count on it
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Credit where credit is due||
They appear to be healthy now and just had three easy wins, two against very good teams. I would not want to be in their bracket right now.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Unsure why you would be negged for this comment?||
The sea change in the kind of worries we have DOES speak to the great work Beilein has done here.
We are disappointed at getting a #2 seed instead of a #1? After a decade on the outside looking in? Horrors!
