Beautiful feature on Morgan. He will be missed.

I hear it's supposed to be 40 today. After the winter we've had, I'll gladly take it.

My GOD, Vitale. He's now drooling over sleazy John Calipari and how he will become a Hall of Fame Coach.
That's almost as bad as Dakich's "Ohio State deserves strength of schedule points for beating Bryant, Vermont and Ohio U," comment during the Illinois game.

I just saw that on ESPN. What the hell was he thinking?
|1 day 16 hours ago||I really liked Chris Young.||
I really liked Chris Young. Nice guy, played hard. His freshman year was the first year of Michigan's nose dive to hell from the sanctions.
I went to senior night at Crisler in 2002. The team was awful. The opponent was Ohio State, who was finally starting to turn their program around. The game ended up being a 9 point loss. The Buckeye fans in the upper bowl were assholes. The game was already lost but during the final timeout, Chris Young ran out to mid-court, bent down, and kissed the block M. I loved his loyalty despite the team's unfortunate results over his career.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Congrats to Nebraska and||
Congrats to Nebraska and screw Tom Crean.
I want so badly for us to go all Illinois on them this weekend.

Nik's 3 right before the half (the ball leaves his hands at .6 seconds) after the Orange Crush chant USA! I can watch that a million times, followed by Mike Tirico's 'O Canada!". LOL!
When it comes to anything Michigan related, Illinois fans have a tendency to be assholes. Not quite the level of Buckeye assdom but about a level below, which is still pretty bad. That's why that shot was my favorite of all of Nik's 3's.

Any time we get a basket now, I look for Andrew Dakich on the bench just to see his reaction.
|1 day 22 hours ago||In regards to Wisconsin, I||
In regards to Wisconsin, I thought they would win their last 2 games easily...and they still might. But after seeing them barely beat Penn State last weekend I'm starting to wonder how they'll do when they travel to Nebraska, who has only lost to us at home all season. Those flat screens in the bathroom stalls really seem to make the Huskers play better and maybe they can pull it off.
Either way, f*ck Bo Ryan.

Kolesar couldn't play in that game. He had broken his collar bone diving for a catch against Illinois a few weeks prior.
This past summer, he emailed me and asked me if I could send him the video clip of his injury. Really nice guy.

I was in kindergarten.
Muppet Babies started that year and was THE must watch of Saturday morning cartoons.
|2 days 15 hours ago||That was when the Big Ten||
That was when the Big Ten title game was played on a Saturday and not 2 minutes before the Selection Sunday presentation.
Just to really blow your mind. These are the coaches that Brian Ellerbe beat that season by double digits: Tom Izzo, Jim Boeheim, Mike Krzyzewski and Bob Knight.
And then the following year, the program went to hell.

His butt still hurts. Inside, he's really happy.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Two confessions. One I'm||
Two confessions. One I'm proud of. One I'm not.
The Bad: I had a bad feeling about this game. Soooooo, I look like a real jackass right now. But I'm too happy to care.
The Good: Right before the half, when Illinois' crowd got loud after cutting our 20 point lead to 18 points, and then giving us all those fouls to run down the clock to 4 seconds... I thought to myself how much I would love to stick it to Illini fans with us getting a basket at the buzzer to end the half. Then Nik drained that 3. LOL!
That was too awesome for words. That's the first ever time I had a "wouldn't it be awesome if we did _______ " thought and the team actually listened to me.

Lucky you to be there. I hope we have a final score like this over Tom Crean this weekend.

His "hang time" on dunks seemed a little longer in the Minnesota game, which made me nervous. A few close calls.
|4 days 1 hour ago||Wisconsin||
Wisconsin has had that scheduling quirk in football and basketball for about 15 years now. Pretty strange to see it happen to a different team.
|4 days 3 hours ago||Illinois will be tough to||
Illinois will be tough to beat. Our squad loves to make us sweat and Illinois considers us a rival. (Remember, it's Illinois students who constantly wear those 'Muck Fichigan' t-shirts.)
That place will be loud and Illinois will be fired up.
|4 days 18 hours ago||I'm still bitter about that||
I'm still bitter about that loss, though. Indiana was a crap team playing like crap when we went to Assembly. Then after playing us, they went back to playing like crap again and lost 3 straight including home losses to Northwestern and Penn State.
F*ck those guys and their jackass of a coach.
|4 days 18 hours ago||They took MSU to overtime at||
They took MSU to overtime at Breslin. They may just win against them in Columbus.
Either way, Izzo will provide many gifs of yet another meltdown.
|5 days 15 hours ago||So many ranked teams losing||
So many ranked teams losing to unranked teams today. That's why I was nervous going into the Minnesota game tonight.
As for rankings, I think we only move up a couple spots because I don't think the polls will care much about us beating Minnesota and having a miracle one point win over a bad Purdue team. But that's all right. All I care about right now is getting the outright B1G title.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Correct. But the way||
Correct. But the way Wisconsin is playing right now, I don't think they're going to lose. So it's crucial that we win at least one of our last two games.
|5 days 16 hours ago||That was from today, right?||
That was from today, right? What was Izzo so upset about?
Did a ref finally T him up for going too far out on the court?
|5 days 16 hours ago||When the record books are||
When the record books are printed out, I'm sure there will be a foot note next to Michigan's name that says - B1G Champs of 2014....but only because Michigan State had injuries. If they were healthy, they would be stronger than the Miami Heat.
Oh well. I'll take the conference championship anyway.
|5 days 16 hours ago||I'm at a loss for words as||
I'm at a loss for words as well. It's still hard to believe that 3 years ago, after back to back blowout losses to bottom dwellers Northwestern and Indiana, many of us, myself included, thought it was time to get rid of John Beilein. But ever since Stu Douglass hit that 3 at Breslin, this program has gone through an unreal transformation.
And who would have thought this team would start to play better AFTER Mitch McGary was lost for the year? It boggles the mind.
I'm beyond happy they have a share of the conference title. And I'm going to be greedy now and say I want us to have it outright.
|6 days 2 hours ago||Assembly Hall put a curse on||
Assembly Hall put a curse on Michigan long ago. And it's restricted to Michigan. Indiana could be 0-14 and Michigan could be #1 and I'd STILL pick us to lose in that building.
Plenty of B1G teams went into Assembly this year and won, including Northwestern and Penn State. Indiana looked so lifeless and shot about 25% in those games. But then Michigan comes to town and all of the sudden they look like world beaters. This same cycle has happened plenty of times over the years. Fuck that building, that team and especially their coach.
|1 week 16 hours ago||Loved this. And then loved||
Loved this. And then loved seeing John Callipari get swept by Arkansas.
I love seeing OSU lose but we really need them to beat Sparty next week to help our chances at an outright conference title...provided we take care of business ourselves. I don't see Iowa winning at Breslin so we have to, once again, root for OSU against MSU. And I'm starting to lose faith in their chances after seeing how the Bucks have played recently.
