And well-deserved. Super athlete and super human being. I may shed a tear watching this ceremony.

Word to MGoBrewMom. It was a wild ride based on a false premise that Chris Webber was playing by the rules. I love Juwan. I appreciate Jalen's passion for UM. Jimmy and Ray were solid 4 year players and a huge part of that crazy experience. I personally cheered those years in Crisler as a student. But I just can't conjure up good vibes of that era due to the dismal death spiral it caused to our hoops program, and this ultimately colors my final opionion of that era.

The 90-91 season was long and tough. The TRUE Michigan student hoops fans endured that year in good spirits. I had a blast cheering for a frontcourt that consisted of:
Rich McIver (sweet hairdo)
Sam Mitchell (smooth, but inconsistent)
McIver and Mitchell would soon transfer. Sigh. That was a young and innocent team in the young and innocent times before the Fab 5 craziness.

I've heard it, and it never ceases to give me chills. The early 90's Wings-Leafs playoff series iced it for me...I love O' Canada.

Yup. Student section should be all over this one. Learn the words, students. Sing your hearts out in honour of Canada's native son. I think it would be the perfect antidote to the USA chants he's endured.

I'll cheer heartily during the BTT, but I'm not passionate about it. It would really only matter to me if (a) we were a true bubble team and needed to make a BTT run to squeak in the NCAA's or (b) if we lost a #1 seed due to a 1st round flop in the BTT.
Tirico and Dakich hit on this point during yesterday's telecast (BTT vs. other conference tourneys). I did a grad school stint at an ACC school, and I loved the pageantry of the ACC tourney. It was magical. But I don't feel that way yet about the BTT and wonder if I ever will. I take great satisfaction in a grind-it-out B1G regular season championship.

Has the Maize Rage serenaded him with "O Canada" yet? That would be pretty sweet to do against IU, especially if it is his last Crisler game. Brings tears to my eyes, that national anthem.

Garde Thompson, meet Nik Stauskas.
Richard Rellford, meet Glenn Robinson.
Gary Grant, meet Derrick Walton.
This is so sweet.

So, what's the deal with hospital food?
|6 days 18 hours ago||UVU||
Since I hadn't heard of UVU before this brawl, 1000 apologies to you for not knowing about your home turf better. I did some quick research...over 30000 students enrolled?! Much bigger than I thought. Have they been D1 sports for a long time?! How long in the WAC?
Additional research has since revealed to me that Noelle Pikus-Pace was a track and field star for UVU.
|6 days 18 hours ago||This information also refutes||
This information also refutes my earlier theory that the ball-thrower was hurling it at someone who probably deserved to get a ball thrown at their private parts. The internet has thoroughly enlightened me about UVU and the ball throwing victim in this case.
|6 days 18 hours ago||Good catch||
I did see "Wolverines" plastered on a banner in that clip. Bastards. There hasn't been a wolverine spotted in Utah Valley in over 300 years!
|6 days 19 hours ago||Utah Valley?||
The main thing I learned from this link was that Utah Valley even existed. I seriously had no idea that they were a D1 team.
Other than that, this was a stupid situation all around. Sounds like NMSU's coach will take disciplinary action, at least from the quotes I saw. As much I would love to hurl the ball at many annoying players' private parts who probably deserve it, restraint must rule.
|6 days 19 hours ago||The year before (2005-2006)||
The year before (2005-2006) was, to me, the biggest disappointment of the Amaker years. Horton + the lineup you just listed should have been an NCAA tourney team. And Graham Brown, too? And Chris Hunter? Yeah...2005-2006 was hugely disappointing.

We need to replace Morford.

You'll be up to 182 lbs in no time. South Quad dorm food will do that to you.

A word of warning to those who want to donate ACL's to our beloved university. I offered my ACL as generous alum support to the Michigan football program, but was told that I wasn't a cadaver.
Get well, Jake. I wish my ACL was helping you.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Low single digit highs||
Low single digit highs up north this weekend, so I'm debating whether to stay home or venture into the woods and ride the trails. It's a win-win. If I dont' go, I'm gonna hunker down and watch me some hoops, drink me some beer, and GET BANGED!
Happy weekend to all.

This event might be the best money ever spent to pull a hamstring. I wish I was local enough to partake in the fun.
|1 week 23 hours ago||Spouse from greater C-bus area||
Both UM alum. She used to stress out when my car laden with block M's would be left out on the street, but nothing ever happened. Only occasional snide remarks from neighbors. This was in the 90's when we repeatedly steamrolled over highly ranked John Cooper teams, so maybe that had something to do with my vehicle leaving C-bus unscathed. I've gone there over 20-30 times with nothing horrible happening.

I was kinda hoping Nebraska would sneak into the tourney with their good conference record. This loss really hurts. They need to win out and win a couple in the B1G tourney.
But, like you say, it increases JB's coach-of-the-year chances. I think JB gets it with the job he's done.

GTFO, Admiral Ackbar. Go home. We win. And we broke the interwebz. POSBANG TIME!

I think we need levitating magicians BEFORE game time, not at half time. I love levitating magicians.

Wisconsin is strangling IU in the 2nd half. And they still haven't unleashed Kaminsky. Take the shackles off, Bo. Unleash Frank!
