Indeed. When Bo was hired, his only "connection" to Michigan was being on the opposing sideline, on the coaching staff at OSU and Northwestern.
I think it's the former football players who wouldn't shut up about a "Michigan man" being the coach during RichRod where that term really took on a life of its own.

Holy crap! Syracuse down 3 to NC State with 30 seconds left. They had 6 offensive rebounds to try and tie the score but missed them all.
That's more offensive rebounds than Michigan gets in a entire game.

I'm sure they'll relive the Evan Turner shot. Not that ESPN hasn't been overkilling that during commercials regardless.

After surviving a 2 point win over 12th seeded Purdue (where the Boliers had a chance to win it at the buzzer) and a huge comeback against Nebraska, is there any chance OSU is too tired against us tomorrow?
Whatever the case, be sure to put your TV's on mute tomorrow. It's going to be a non-stop Craft lovefest by the commentators.

Oh, man. The ass kissing of Craft will never end now.

Happy Buckeyes are just an awful sight.

You're very welcome. I'll be uploading more football vids once spring arrives.

North Carolina getting killed and I LOVE IT!

Very, very stupid. Now is not the time to try a Michael Jordan move. Just get the easy points.

Bucks are 5-12 at the free throw line? Ouch.
|23 hours 17 min ago||Nebraska is 0-4 against us||
Nebraska is 0-4 against us since joining the conference. But Ray Gallegos has gone nuts from 3 point land every time he plays us. He concerns me the most but the rest of the team playing as well as they are, it's going to be tough game.

I say we treat this like the Purdue game at Mackey. Appreciate the last shot but let us never speak of this game again and move on.
|1 day 1 hour ago||This is the kind of game that||
This is the kind of game that always worries me. When we can't get the shots to drop, even when we have good looks, and can never get offensive rebounds, teams will be neck and neck with us....or worse.
Please play better tomorrow, blue.

The majority of us (myself included) predicted doom and gloom after that 1 point win at Nebraska. Amazing to think about that now.
The Arizona game... I still wonder how that game would have ended had McGray not been called for...breathing too hard on a Wildcat player, which gave them the game winning free throws. If the refs don't suck, that game might have gone to OT.

PSU brought their band to the big house in 1994, 2002, 2005 and 2009.

Stupid Purdue turning it over when Craft missed a free throw.

Just turned the OSU/Purdue game on. Is it right for me to assume the refs are letting Aaron Craft ram into people and get away with multiple travels as usual?

The almost moonwalk is a good one. The river dance one is a little better. But I think that Billy Cosby seizure looking move against Indiana is my favorite.

I'd be shocked if it weren't Penn State.
But Penn State is weird. On two different occasions, the MMB had requested to travel to Beaver Stadium for some huge games and PSU said no both times. They said yes in 1999 and 2001 but no in 1997 and 2006. So I guess it will depend on what mood they are in. They never say no to OSU's band going to their place.

Crap. I missed the shot. But yay for the outcome.

Good riddance. I'll be rooting against you in the NIT, Tom Crean.
|2 days 2 hours ago||I wouldn't go as far to say||
I wouldn't go as far to say I'm an Illinois fan because their fans have a long history of being jackasses when it comes to anything Michigan related. But I agree with everything else. Indiana overachieves when they play us and it's annoying as hell. Plus Tom Crean...well, that goes without saying.

I guess I'm on my own when it comes to this. I like Musberger. I always have. Him saying, "You are looking live at the big house in Ann Arbor," will always be one of my favorite memories of the college football season.
In the 90's, he became a favorite of mine because of all the jabs he used to take at OSU under John Cooper. He frequently said on the air during random games that he expected Michigan to win THE GAME. One time, Don Shane got an interview with him on the Big Ten Ticket. It was early in the season but Brent brought up this line....
BRENT: The team is playing better and they know it will just be a matter of time before they go to Columbus and beat the Bucks yet again for a Big Ten Title.
DON: Maybe not this year.
BRENT: They'll find a way to win. They always do.
Then in 1998 when a crappy MSU team pulled off the ultimate upset of #1 OSU in Columbus (Remember Joe Germaine's end zone interception and Cooper angrily throwing his hat on the field in disgust?) The first words out of Brent's mouth were... "Ladies and Gentlmen, Michigan State has just beaten Michigan to the punch.". Buckeye fans felt lower than low at that moment and Brent poured salt in the wound by immediately bringing up their futility against Michigan. It was so beautiful. (God, I miss those days)
And it's also kind of hard to forget our 8-1 record when Brent broadcasts a Michigan/Notre Dame game. He called Desmond's fourth down catch and Roundtree's game winner for UTL.
I'm going to miss him and I make no apologies for that.

Down 10 with 2:20 to go. Still hard to believe.

Wow. I forgot how many missed free throws we had in this game. We never seemed to complete the and 1. And Nik and Hardaway with a few misses.
|4 days 17 hours ago||That game is still hard to||
That game is still hard to sum up with the right words. Kansas was such a loaded team. They scored in the paint with ease. And they were on fire heading into the half. But the score wasn't out of reach at that point, which at the time, felt surprising.
The second half, despite how hard we were playing, I had that sense of dread that we were going to do JUST enough to lose by 2 points, just like our game with Duke 2 years earlier.
Trey hitting that shot....just epic.

Good riddance to Wisconsin AND Bo Ryan.
What a day. It's not often where every team you root against actually loses.

McGary breathed too hard on a Arizona player and got called for a foul, allowing them free throws for the winning score. That would have been an impressive win for the resume.

So many highly ranked teams losing last weekend and this weekend.
