TBS pundits (Smith, Kellogg, and guest coach analyst Mike Brey) are picking Loyola.  I'm OK with that.   I'm slightly unnerved that Barkley's on our side, but the Barkley curse needs to end at some point.

I've seen people claim that the whole country besides UofM fans are cheering for Loyola.  So I've wondered if the Kansas and Villanova fans there will cheer hard for Loyola making it essentially an away game for us.  However, a study of Twitter claims that Michigan has the most positive tweets of any Final Four team and Loyola is third.

I think michigan either wins it or loses it with little to do with loyola.    I don't see us laying a egg here, so I feel our talent is going to take us into monday with even more confidence.   Go Blue!

I'm patriotic. Just got back from a family visit to the National Portrait Gallery Smithsonian in DC.

That national anthem was painful as all hell.
