Your palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's vomit on your jersey already, training table spaghetti
Your nervous, but on the surface you look calm and ready to drop some three point bombs,
Just don't forget what coach B wrote down,
and when the whole crowd goes so loud
You'll open your mouth, and the words will come out
No choking now, nobody's joking now
Once the clock's run out and time's up over, wow
It will be reality, Oh there go wolverines
Oh, there goes Beilein, he won
He's so glad, that theydidn't give up that easy

You better lose yourself in the game flow, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance or blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo

I would tell them that I am proud to be a Michigan fan and that the enjoyment they have brought me will be remembered forever.

Leave all you have on the court tonight and damn the results, we love you regardless and you are all forever Michigan Men.

Thanks for the ride. We are stuck on the top of the Ferris wheel. Win today and we get off and party... Lose and we are stuck for a little while before realizing we are slowly coming down still a good ride but it could've been better.

And "Stauskas, please find your stroke early and hit at a great clip today.

"Did you see that little kid score a touchdown in the Nebraska spring game?"

"No?  WTF?!!?!?!  DO YOU LIVE IN A CAVE?"


Then I'd whip out the video and they'd win by ELEVENTY BILLION.

A bunch of blue collar players who were supposed to get demolished by the flashy Lakers. The Pistons suffocated Shaq, Kobe, Payton and Malone because they were a team that embodied the state of Michigan - hardworking, grinding, and working harder than your opponent until they submit.

This is a Michigan team. We're going to play Michigan basketball. Not just University of Michigan basketball, but state of Michigan basketball. This is what we do. Let's go to work.

(I assume that Bacari would bring out the hard hats tonight if he gave that speech.)

Boom Goes the …

Wolverines! You are about to embark upon a great crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers in arms on other fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the Louisville war machine, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened, he will fight savagely.

But this is the year 2013! Much has happened since the Cadinal triumphs of the early season.   The free men of the world are marching together to victory!

I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in basketball. We will accept nothing less than full victory!

Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessings of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.
