Bring On the Kentucky Wildcats!

Would have been nice to have a rematch for some revenge but I think UK might be a better matchup if only for experience reasons.  Our beloved Wolverines are practically old timers compared to all of their 1-and-dones and they won't have time to prepare for all the tricks Beilein has up his sleeve.  I think the winner of this game takes the whole thing.

Glad they won. Let's see if their freshmen can successfully celebrate a huge rivalry win in the tournament and then come out ready to play great basketball in less than 48 hours. Let's see if Calipari can prepare for Beilein in time. My guesses: no and no

Kind of funny that we have the opportunity to advance to the Final Four by only beating the #7, 8, 11, and 15 seeds in our bracket.

I'll take it for sure, but I'd be whining like crazy if it was MSU or OSU that had that schedule

Like Ohio State did last year?  And then they blew it.

Anyway, Kentucky looks to me to be very similar to Tennessee, but with a worse coach, less experience, and higher top end potential.  Especially without Cauley-Stein who would really bother our guys trying to get to the rim and would probably make us even more a jump shooting team.

They also gave Louisville an extra possession at the end with their inability to properly view a replay.  I just don't get how you can get a call wrong after looking at a slow mo zoomed in replay.  I mean honestly.  How the fuck does that happen twice in one night by two separate crews?

True.  I just saw the one from our game on this postgame and it is just mindboggling how they saw anything but Maymon's hand touching that last.  They should make the refs submit a public report saying what they see on replays.  Maybe that would make them see a little better.  

Also a bunch of reporters keep asking why that charge was called "in that situation."  What the fuck?  If it's a foul it's a foul.   It's absurd how much they try to change the rules in the final minute.
