A few weeks back, at the beginning of the tournament, Jalen Rose made some comments about how he hoped to reunite the Fab Five by getting tickets to watch the Wolverines play in Atlanta. Always the polarizing figure on these very pages*, this was met with mixed reaction.
Some people said things along the lines of, "Jalen, it's not about you and the Fab Five anymore. Why would you announce that you are buying courtside tickets with the rest of the Fab Five and make it all about you, you're so selfish, etc."
Personally, I like Jalen Rose and think he has been a (mostly) good representative for the University. I did not mind the comments, though I can understand why some may have felt that way.
ANYWAY, on sportcenter they asked Rose to compare the current team to the Fab Five (this is inevitable, and certainly not the fault of Jalen), and it seems like he took some of y'alls criticism to heart, specifically saying that he did not want to make the comparison because this team is special in their own way, and this final four trip is about them. Good for him.

* Shout out to THE_KNOWLEDGE. Pretty awesome how he picked Wichita St. in the final four.
** He didn't do it on these very pages, but obvs. he did, and is totally soaring.
