Kansas or UNC

Kansas or UNC

Michigan will face the winner of Kansas/UNC this afternoon, as we all know. In March, its not all about the better seed being a harder game, its about the matchups. We all saw that against VCU, a matchup that weighed in our favor.

So who do we want to face: Kansas or UNC?

Just under an hour until the Madness resumes,so I was rewatching the highlights from the VCU dismantling. I kept replaying the McGary pick that destroyed/annihilated the VCU kid.

I'm pretty sure the first thought he had was, "did anyone get the number of that truck?"

I know this because, once during a pick-up BB game, I forgot I was playing outside and introduced my face to the basket support while attempting a finger-roll lay-up. Result: bad.

Yes, I suck at basketball.

My question is: what is the hardest you've ever been hit and can you create a meme or GIF to memorialize the McGary "Stonewall" moment?

1. He hit him so hard his children will need dental work...

Contribute, enjoy; Go Blue!

EDIT: changed the title for clarity and to pay homage to Al Jolson and James Cagney.

Adidas Jersey Issues! UPDATED & EDITED

Adidas Jersey Issues! UPDATED & EDITED

Submitted by Fhshockey112002 on March 23rd, 2013 at 3:01 PM

With GR3's jersey issues today (originally reported as blood, later to be tearing) can Michigan finally get away from Adidas?   Not sure if it was widely known but the report of Michigan not having their Blue road uniforms since the Minnesota game, and would be wearing last years jerseys if the road team. 

That Minnesota game was on JANUARY 17th that is over 2 months ago, and Adidas can't get Michigan replacement jerseys? 

I know there is always a lot of complaining about the apperal that Adidas puts out but with the football jersey issues the last two seasons, and now these issues with the basketball team there has to be a change.

Edit: It appears Adidas has mad a statement about Michigan not having their road uniforms.

Adidas statement: “We have plenty of Michigan uniforms including the home white jersey they wore today. There won’t be any issues.”

Not sure if the Liveblog continues today. Big Big game today. Advancing the program, or treading water. And of course we get the only 5 seed to survive, so match-ups don't come closer than this. Rest of the bracket doesn't look like world beaters if we win today. One down, five to go. Go Blue!
