(Believe in Beilein)

Nothing in here about the Basketball team. Not worried at all about the game Saturday against W. Michigan as Beilein has the team smoking hot and working well. Same for Binghampton. But that gets followed the 6th of Jan. with Indiana, and that will be a tough one. The Hoosiers are cranking out the wins too

Any thoughts about the roundballers you would like to share like to share?

Had forgotten about this game in the start of the Bad Boys era.  On 12/13/83, the Pistons defeated the Nuggets 186-184 in triple OT, and the 370 combined points is still the most ever in a single NBA game.  A few crazy stats:

1) Both teams were only 1-2 (or 2-4) combined from the 3-pt line, which had only went into play in the NBA starting in 1979.  The distance is the same as today.

Villanova about to go down to Penn.  Not the pedos, the Ivy leaguers.  They actually just had a last shot to tie it with 1 second left...but a tough shot missed.  So down the go again (although Furman looks tough).

 

To add a conversation piece on a slow sports night (more of a legal and litigious night!)....ESPN just aired the Bobby Knight 30 for 30.  What a y'alls opinion on ehat happened back in 2000 and his removal/firing from Indiana and thoughts on his legacy.  I grew up with him as IU coach and know/remember what went down but....what say you?!

Michigan emerged as a 1 seed in Joe Lunardi's latest Bracketology. Also of note: Big Ten has 10(!) teams in the bracketology. Obviously, way too early for any of this.

Michigan *should* be 14-0 heading into the IU game.

Intro

I was poking around on Bart Torvik and found some truly remarkable stats that made me think that Michigan would be better off lowering Charles Matthews' usage and giving it primarily to Jordan Poole.

Appropriately passed Virginia - but Tennessee leaped over us, and somehow Gonzaga stayed ahead of us, despite this loss and looking mediocre against Washington at home.

The sports press are dolts.  Can't admit when they have it wrong at the start of the season, and are always underestimating us.

The NET Raking, the ranking system that NCAA created, has Michigan at #1 right now. That was BEFORE Gonzaga lost tonight.

Can't remember when Michigan was ranked #1 in basketball in any official capacity.
