Chicken jokes aside, and I'm sure WD is going to share some notes on every meeting...but why don't we play ND in basketball every year?
It makes too much sense to be honest.
Is there some history behind it? Why not play one game each year?
While Tommy Amaker couldn't get it done here, he was always a classy guy. I remember him calling his recruits, including Manny Harris, urging them to honor their Michigan commitments after he was fired. Anyway, he is in a one game playoff with Yale today at 4 pm to get into the NCAA tournament, and I'll be cheering him on.
Just avoid any (unlikely I hope) coaching debates -- this isn't meant to be anything otherr than a positive comment on a former coach. I think that John Beilein may be the best coach we've ever had, and hope that he finishes his career here some time far off into the future.
I just want to talk about basketball... A lot of good games on today!
Great way to end the season. This team showed waves of improvement as the season progressed. Always fun to beat up the Illini. Looking forward anyone know our NIT chances?? Who should we rout for in the mid majors? Enjoy

If you are at work, I would recommend reading this story on your lunch break. I'm not ashamed to admit I had to put the "Closed" sign up at my office for 10 minutes to pull myself back together.
