Watching Chicago and wishing we still had Marion Hossa.

I woke my parents up yelling like crazy!

Was just going to make this thread.
My prediction: Wings 3 - Ducks 1
|10 weeks 7 hours ago||You would have an excellent point||
However, if what we got on Monday night was the "best" refs then College Basketball has some issues.
I don't know if other officials might have handled the game better as the game would need to be replayed. I am however willing to say why not at least try officials that do not make up the conferences represented in the final four.
|10 weeks 7 hours ago||The difference in whistles blown||
Is hardly worthy of justification for missed calls. Michigan always commits fewer fouls than its opposition. If Michigan consistently led in fouls but the number was skewed in their favor for this one game then you would have a point.
McGary had a couple of wacks below that could have fouled him out. He didn't score as much so it may not have mattered. I would rather have traded McGary fouling out for a better calls on both ends.
You see if our team loses when the officiating is performed well then you just have to take your lumps and move on. When everyone is noting the poor officiating the next day then you have a problem.
|10 weeks 7 hours ago||Burke should have||
Burke should have been shooting free throws here. If he hits them both then Michigan cuts the lead to two points and what happens from there is anyone's guess.
I really don't want to re-live this game because nothing we ascertain is going to matter. The only good that can come of this is the NCAA takes note and corrects mistakes in the future.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||I don't believe||
it will be another 20 before we get back to the NC game. Remember Michigan was an elite program that made it to the NC game once a decade prior to the scandal.
Now that the program is back, facilities have been upgraded, and we have a great coach those top notch recruits will flood in. Beilein has two challenges I believe 1) Is try to win with a traditional lineup (three forwards and two guards) and 2) win with talent that could be gone in one to two years. The first challenge should be easy because Beilein is a great coach. The second challenge won't be because you have to constantly re-work team strategy in a quicker manner.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Trey and Spike||
The decision to go with them both was not a bad one at all. You go with what has worked for you throughout the tournament. Louisville was a pressing team and having those guys both in really helped in earlier games against the press.
Beilein could have made a couple key changes but overall he called a good game. He was dealt with some challenges that he is not accustomed to. First challenge was Trey Burke in foul trouble. I have watched just about every game this season and off the top of my head I don't remember any games that Trey fouled out.
Also, I don't remember a game where a team went on a run and Beilein attempted to stop the bleeding with timeouts. That stretch was not a long one. In less than 2 minutes off the clock Louisville came all the way back.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Great season!||
Extremely fun to watch. I really enjoyed Spike's emergence on the big stage. This has to give us fans confidence next season that our team will be in good hands even if we don't make it back to the NC game. I believe Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III will be back. Will be interesting to how Caris has evolved in the offseason. Excited about next year.
I was extremely dissappoint in Tim Hardaway's tournament. I know he was in double figures for most of the games but he took a ton of shots. His shooting percentage was awfully low and he missed big shots at the time when Michigan needed to him to hit them. He was constantly torched by who he was guarding too. I really do not believe he is NBA material right now and would love him to correct these issues with one more season. I believe he can.
It was also a pleasure to hang out with and celebrate with you all. This website gives us a wonderful opportunity to interact and makes the experience that much better.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||The refs were horrible||
Here is a telling article ( http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1597935-louisville-cardinals-championship-streetball-on-the-biggest-stage ). Yet, the refs did not determine the outcome. Michigan allowed a man to single handedly close the points gap in the first half. In the second half, Tim Hardaway's defense was horrid. Follow that up by his poor shot selection (taking the most shots) and missing a key ft down the stretch and you have a loss.
Kudos to Michigan as they will do well next year. Sucks that the refs did not call a decent game. Sucks that Hardaway failed to guard dribble penetration at all in the second half.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||I love explaining to folk||
About our fight song and why the word "West" is used.
They do not understand that this nation is not old and at one point Michigan was the West!
Tonight they will rule the North, East, South, and WEST!
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, he does||
And he is right. Tim Hardaway initiated the contact and played selfishly. Every time he has been under the hoop on a 2 on 1, his teammates have feed him the ball for an easy basket.
This time he had the opportunity to slide the ball to McGary for an easy two. He refused to do so. That play cost us two points. You shouldn't expect to get bailed out by a call, make the play that will certainly net you two points.
Backing up the sentiment that the officiating was not spot on, Spike's first make from three point land should a resulted in a foul because he was hit on the shot. There were some other chippy plays. Syracuse's zone was solved for the most part and that is why Michigan won. No one should blame the outcome of a 40 minute game on one call.

not apply to those who were students in the 1920s such as yourself mGrowOld. Burn away!

Best wishes and prayers for her family as they cope with their loss.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Can't stop them from going||
But I get the funny feeling in the pit of my stomach when we are announcing the arrival of the players who lost two National Championship games in a row to a Michigan National Championship game.
Let them show up after we have won one. :D

or it didnt happen!
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Spike has come up huge||
And he has done so in limited playing time.
We may not have the same level of success next year but this tournament makes me much more confident in next years team if Trey Burke decides to go pro.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||I love reading your articles||
You are definitely a better writter than anyone at espn.com.
Please continue to do this all of your days.
You also excel at keeping Brian on topic with his podcasts.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Oops||
Although that was more luck I would say. He didn't really have time to spot anyone, just throw it and hope for this best.
Ended up resulting in a Jordan Morgan dunk.
Typo in previous post: upon = open

Who is probably kicking himself right now.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Tim Hardaway||
I know he has put up decent points but I wouldn't say he has had a good tournament. Last night, he nearly lost the game by himself. He did not hit his shots despite being upon numerous times. The man Tim guarded (Fair) repeatedly hit shots and becamse the go to guy for Syracuse. I hope he has a complete game on Monday. It is one thing to score 10+ points in a game but it would be better if he did it with a decent shooting percentage.
To Tim's credit he did hit two clutch free throws but I hope he has a much better game on Monday.

That is where I will be. Doing that and sleeping. You have to store up energy for tomorrow because there you will expend it all.

Gottlieb when he said "the world is round."
If anyone said that to me on the air like I didn't know it, I would love some professionalism.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Could be worse.||
CBS could show his injury and then put the camera on him.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, it has||
Also, been wanting to ask you what is going on with your channel? All the videos I loved to watch are gone.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||HAHAHAHA!||
Just beat Syracuse but anyone else watching with glee now?
I really like Michigan's chances.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Very Entertaining First Half||
This is code for "sloppy"
|10 weeks 4 days ago||That was a huge!||
What a monsterous dunk looking like GRIII.
