I was in Crystal City at my hotel watching this.  I was clearly the only alumnus in the bar. The bartender, a Michigan native, had my drinks on the house the rest of the night.  I wish I could have been with my boys to watch it but my 11 year old texted me, "Muppets!!!" as the OT clock zeroed.

is wise beyond his years.

I was just so impressed with this win not just because of Trey's heroics, but McGary's put back late, GRIII's scramble and layup, a key Stauskus 3-pointer during the comeback late in the second half.  Everybody contributed and never gave up.  So freaking proud of that team.

I love how "ball puncher" (Johnson) gets a ten second violation and then misses a free throw that leads to Burke's miracle three from the heavens.  

Don't punch people in the balls.  That is the lesson here.  Now you know.

There is nothing else I know that can cause you to run such a wide spectrum of emotions in such a short amount of time.

And my god, between the explosion of sub related tweets, watching this shot over and over and now the addition of Bartelstein the Magnificent who can predict your awesome immediate future, I have been giggling like a child all night.

It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine.

Tims look is priceless.  I don't think he know's what's really occuring at the moment other than his teammate slumping to the floor, but that blank stare and his eyes following Johnson is quite funny.

Oh, and Bill Self is licking his lips as Mitch's dong is punched.  Not glad I noticed that.

I was at the Blue Tractor for it.  The whole place went absolutley nuts.

This game was the best since ND in 2011...  brillant recovery to get it to overtime and a brilliant win there.  It's incredible to see our guys come though in the clutch like that.  Goddamn.

I'm watching this on a loop.  Between tv hightlights and the few shots of it online and now this little montage, I really am trying to take-in that shot as much as possible.  The image of this won't get skewed over time either, as in the memory of tonight's moments won't become greater than what really happened and then I look at it 30 years down the road and it's more like "That was sort of cool, but not what I remember...", because there's not a way that that shot/game could have been made any more memorable or iconic.  That shit was better than any Hollywood or brilliant Indie or up-and-coming Director/screenplay writer could have manufactured.

I'm really trying and am succeeding in enjoying this game more than how'd I'd be suffering if we'd lost.  We ofen times, more like always and it's just nature that we do this, take the losses harder than we celebrate the wins.  I'm giving a middle finger to that notion tonight.  Trey Burke...Thanks for this.  Moar Sunday pleez.

I live in Korea and the game started at 8:15 Sat. morning.  Unfortunately, my wife and son ran their first 10K at 8:30am.  Suck.  Then my youngest son had some Easter egg-hunt ridiculousness which I had to attend.  All day was misery waiting to come home and watch the game.

F'N INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!  I watched with my son wearing his Trey jersey and me wearing Trey's shorts on my head.  Not sure how it happened, but when I put them on with a few minutes left, Trey went crazy.




And my 11 y/o son will never forget this game.  It will be etched in his memory.  And we will share that memory.  That is a very, very good thing.

I saw your post earlier yesterday about not being able to see it.  I hope it was as magical as it was for all of us.

I'll add that I love the blatant honesty in realizing that your kids G-damn activities were totally a nusance; the line about "having to attend an Easter Egg hunt.." was funny, as if there was an alternative of not!?  Way to man up though, not that you need anyone telling you that, and getting through the day for the family.
