Michigan's Path to the Championship Game...

Submitted by Indy Pete - Go Blue on March 23rd, 2018 at 12:20 AM

Michigan has two 9 seeds and an 11 seed left to face in order to make it to the national championship game. 

With the way we are playing, I am not sure it matters who we play.  However, having improved odds by playing all the Cinderellas is certainly something we can appreciate as fans.

Who wants to face Michigan right now?  No sane coach or team would want a piece of this Michigan action right now.

Pick your poison.  This team always finds a way to win.  Today it was decimation mode, but it does not really matter.  Michigan basketball has risen to elite program status (3 elite 8s in 6 years).  However, the fun is just beginning...

Go blue!

it is the best team in the country (exept maybe Villanova).  IE, UM at peak level is better than any other team at their peak level.

This is because we now have elite defense.  When we run our offense, it puts opposing defenses in a bind (Beilein forces you to pick your poison) because we are so versatile and flexible.  All depends on the 3s going down.

Unlike in year's past, this team is more than just an offensive juggernaut with an average defense.  We can win ugly.  But peak UM is one of the top 2 or 3 teams in the country.

42 three point shots is simply an amazing feat. Great job by your coaches and players. You should be proud, my only reply is, Go Blue! Good luck the rest of the way and win that National Championship.

Well played!

Both FSU and KSU look like they rely on bigs and don't usually shoot the lights out. Not a lot of firepower. Loyola looks like they can shoot but their numbers aren't stellar either.

Michigan's offense woke up tonight. After the miracle against Houston I thought of the 2013 Florida game and hoped they could repeat it. Let's hope they can do it again.
