It's karma payback for having to watch MSU in the Final Four.

Represent! There has to be some pent-up demand for Michigan tournament basketball. Or Michigan tournament anything.

I thought I recalled hearing about some connections to non-Michigan players.

Seriously, why do you care what we think?
When we went to the Final Four recently, I did not care at all what MSU fans thought about it. I didn't need them to validate that it was a cool thing, I figured that out all by myself.
But if it makes you feel better, Izzo's had a pretty good run. So now it's official, because a Michigan fan just validated it for you.
Now you can go run along.

They get enough shots of Izzo crying, you would think they would be satisfied.

Last year, I didn't go to Myyrtle Beach on vacation. But this year, I'm not going to Maui. I am definitely moving up in the world.
|22 hours 27 min ago||I don't expect to beat out||
I don't expect to beat out KY, KS, and Duke. We're not going to get guys like Okafor. But I'd like to beat out schools like ND for players like Auguste. We should be able to do that.
Hell, we should be able to get a Kaminsky or Dekker once in a while. We did it before with McGary, but it's been a while.

The year before the Fab 5, we lost to Colorado in the first game of the NIT. It does happen.

All was not lilly white in the '80s. Ed Martin and company did not just move to Detroit and take an interest in local players in the fall of 1991.
Nevertheless, at the end of the day, Ed Martin was an Ed Martin booster, not a Michigan booster.
But that aside, people understate what a great recruiting area southeastern Michigan is. You can win a National Championship just by successfully recruiting that area. It's been done.
In that sense, we are like Florida or FSU is in the state of Florida in football. We can win with the recruits in our own backyard plus a few cherry-picked recruits from our region.

This is true. In a neutral area, there are no State fans to be found.
I live in the DC area which has people from all over the country. There are zero State fans anywhere. Most people are not even sure who they are.

Duke takes it to a whole 'nother level. Way beyond what Louisville or Wisconsin or anybody else gets.

No Bowl game.
No NCAA Basketball Tourney.
No NCAA Hockey Tourney.
OSU wins the Football National Championship.
MSU is in the NCAA Final Four.
Damn, this Harbaugh guy must be something special, because the gods of Michigan sports are extracting a hell of a price.

Some team I don't like is going to have their heart ripped out. Good.
Of course, some team I also don't like is going to be cutting down Final Four nets. Oh, well.

Fuck. Louisville finally gets Karma by getting a clean block called a foul . . . against the wrong Michigan team.

KY is big, but they are not quick. ND was very quick and had KY chasing shadows.
But Wis is slow. Their hope is to trade 3's for 2's and to not have Frank K. not get in early foul trouble.

Why not, it's a great story.

They were the anti-Beilein team. They ran-ran-ran, took it to the post hard, and defended the post well. They were not a perimeter team at all. When they tried to be, it was a disaster.
Every time Jalen jacked up a three, I held my breath. It cost them the momentum agianst Duke in the NC game in '92, and the game itself at the end against Arkansas in the '94 Regional Final.
|1 day 4 hours ago||They were a juggernaut that||
They were a juggernaut that year, thought of with the same esteem as this year's KY team. Nobody could match up to them, it was thought.
That victory by the Fab 5 over them is way underrated. Unfortunately, it took something out of them for the NC game and they were flat and underestimated UNC who was not thought of in the same breath as KY or Temple that year.
