Wasn't always pretty until the end.


3rd Round here we come!

Thoughts? Thoughts.

I believe Dykstra just apologized to Coach Beilein for the hard foul at the end of the game when it was out of hand.

If so, very classy.

Best of luck to SDSU next year.

I usually use snowflakes when we lose in Football or Basketball, but I got yelled at a few weeks ago after a win when I just put "Postgame Thread" so now I always make sure "snowflakes" is in there.

That said, there is a story behind it. I think MWolverine would know.

After football games, everyone created his own thread entitled, "Michigan should run the ball better" or "I am unhappy." I put in a rule that you couldn't create a post-game thread that was just the stuff that people were already discussing in existing threads. It's called the snowflake rule because not everyone's unsupported and repetitive opinion is a special little snowflake that needs to be shared.

Now people create a thread after games in which people can put their own random thoughts.

BiSB instituted it this past football season when after a game there would be thirty different threads about the game and most of them similar. So the snowflake came into effect as being one post where original thoughts and different thoughts would all be posted in one place. Not ten threads about "This team doesn't have heart" or something stupid or similar to that.

The Sparty fans I sat by had a hilarious inferiority complex.  Dude commented the entire game with his vast knowledge of all things and Michigan basketball.  Lamented 3 times in the first half how for years Michigan fans didn't care about basketball and one good year gets them "all the nice stuff."  The poor guy wakes up every morning and says "fuck I am the little brother."  I found it terribly annoying at first but soon found it very entertaining.  I enjoyed the game thoroughly.

Excellent time for GRIII to show up. When he's aggressive like he was today, (and assuming Trey isn't this off) who knows how far we could go. Great win.

starts playing like a first round draft pick in college on the 13th overall seeded team, we could go far.

Michigan wins big and Burke had an off night. This is great in soo many ways. Burke will be back with a vengeance and the rest of the team is playing great. Best game of GRIII's career - defensively and offensively

We played terrible and covered the spread.  Don't know what that means for VCU.

Hats off to McGary for a loud game.  Bigger hat off to THJ for a quiet monster game.
