If Lewan didn't "Shock The World" and return for his senior season, he would likely be a 1st round draft pick. For the sake of not invoking Section 1, I think we all know the reason behind our current drought.

Is there any hope that a Big Ten player gets selected in the first round at ALL?
I can't remember the statistic, but that hasn't happened in like 60 years or so.

Thanks again for all of your hard work and dedication to this program, as well as making one of my favorite titles for a post ever.

In my opinion, removing "been" would make this image even better. Something something parallelism.

We all know 86 == 1, and we have an 81.45% to win it all. That means, by my predictions, we should score 70.0 points in every game in Atlanta.

I don't think any amount of kittens and Kate Upton can remedy this tradgedy. =(

Coin flips. 1 seed vs a 16 seed gets 5 flips (1/32 chance to succeed), 2s get 4 flips (1/16), 3s and 4s get 3 flips (1/8, so I'm roughly guessing a single 3 or 4 seed will get upset in every tournament), 5s and 6s get 2 flips, and the rest is a true 50/50 shot.
The Final Four and Championship is always a 50/50 shot. It usually gives me a Cinderella team, which is always fun. IIRC this year's Cinderella is Bucknell, with Albany upsetting Duke but not getting any farther.
I learned my lesson last year, where I actually looked into matchups and made "great" predictions but finished in last place. Even the dog did better than I did (selected all dog mascot teams regardless of seeds, two dog matchups goes to the higher seed)

Also College Hockey news on Twitter said the Michigan was quickly becoming a "TUC"
Is there a chance where, if we face Miami and knock them out but lose to say ND in the finals, we could eek out a 4 seed?

If the contest was even between Zeller and Burke, I think Zeller would have wrapped it up. However, Burke has been consistently dominant for an entire season--which put Zeller behind.
I think it's Burke's. He still had a good game.

Heard the front page of MGoBlog was bashing the MMB somewhere around the fall of 2009. After a few months (and the rampant band support that ensued), I decided you guys weren't too bad.

It's over. They're seriously getting like 20 votes a second and we're getting a couple. Our only hope is that this contest gets called off due to rampant cheating.

I'm more surprised Brian's still alive. Didn't he give us permission to shoot him if we lost?
Good thing is the Ann Arbor Torch & Pitchfork co. is looking at a fantastic month.
Fuck it. Somebody post a kitten.

69-54 Sparty. This team is dead and won't rebound from this humiliating loss due to their lack of leadership and defensive fundamentals.
*crazier prediction: Michigan doesn't win another game until the start of next season.

Crazy stat: Alabama(!!!) can take 1st place in the SEC when they play Florida on March 2nd. (They only have one meeting this year and hence will win the tiebreaker)

It blows me away at how uninspired we start some of our games.

|13 weeks 3 days ago||IU and MSU are both at 11-2.||
IU and MSU are both at 11-2. We're at 9-4. We need BOTH IU and MSU to drop two games and for us to win out.
Luckily, we play both of these teams once more. If we win (quite a big 'if' considering our current play) both of these, we just need IU and MSU to both drop one game.
Even more luckily, MSU and IU play each other. That means regardless, if we win out, we will be tied with one of these teams if IU/MSU wins every other game they should. Who to root for tomorrow is the team most likely to drop one of their remaining games not against Michigan.
Indiana doesn't really have difficult games outside of MSU and MICH. @MINN could be interesting, but I don't feel comfortable relying on the Gophers.
MSU still has to go to OSU and has a moderately difficult game at home against Wisconsin. They'll be favored to win both of those games, but I believe it's more probable for them to drop one of those two than Indiana dropping to the Gophers.
Therefore, I'll be hoping Sparty wins the game on Tuesday. If everything goes according to plan, we'll have a 3-way tie between IU, MSU, and Michigan. Plus we'll have quite the streak going into the tournament. Woo.
