ESPN Picture Piece About Michigan Basketball

Submitted by bluebyyou on February 6th, 2013 at 1:53 PM

Like most of us, I couldn't sleep after last night's amazing game with Ohio. ESPN had a photo piece about Michigan and then some.  Some good shots that many will appreciate, particularly after our win.  89 photos in all.  

The piece is called Michigan vs Ohio State - One Day, One Game…

Pretty cool shots! 

This ends up being a pretty good tour of the PDC, too.  In photo five you can see the device mounted low on the wall that is designed to train (and time) player's response time to horizontal moves.  The light zooms back and forth and the plater is supposed to follow it.  It's like the world's coolest cat toy.

I was struck by how happy a lot of players look in the candids.  Also, our opposing team locker room is pretty nice.  Better than the red team deserved.

Interesting how the author completely glazes over the context and addresses those two plays on Craft as if in a vacuum.  He makes no mention of the fantom UofM foul earlier and the blown call on the 3 that should never have been (resulting in 5 much needed points).  Oh and he just completely leaves out the flagrant foul that should have been on Craft only seconds before.  At least the announcers last night (God I hate Dickie V) were consistent in calling for the flagrant and the foul in the end.  Whatever, it evened out.  The fact that OSU already had several terrible calls go their way that enabled the game to go to OT is more than evened out by the no-call on the foul that this guy chooses to analyze.

ESPN kept plugging that they'll be releasing a ESPN THE MAGAZINE dedicated to the game with pics. I will be picking that up along with one of those Maize jerseys and maybe socks if they sell em.

Those are some truly incredible photographs.  The training facilities are simply stunning.

Not to mention I think my favorite photo was of some student room with the Michigan shotglass power hour.  Take me back to undergrad, NOW.

Those letterman jackets look so slick and fantastic on our athletes. Fucking love it.

EDIT: I, too was super jacked last night after the game. I (foolishly) got into Twitter battles with jackass Ohio fans. I will never do that again. All they were saying was "what's the record in the last decade?" I'm so sick of that tired argument. What matters is where the program is now and where it's going.

I was sick and promptly fell asleep before the game and missed the whole damn thing. We won unlike the two other big games where I was lamenting on the open threads.

I will now get sick and sleep through the following games @Wisc, @MSU, MSU

and IU.

You're all welcome in advance. Now where's the NyQuil?
