Michigan vs. Syracuse NCAA Tournament Game 5 Open Thread

Game coverage technically an hour away. But we know it'll be more with a latter tip as the current game runs long. But this is how the first 4 have gone (early thread), so I'm not changing. Somehow we need to counter the jinx of an early preview on the front page, and show the great basketball gods that this is the sincerest board and they can shower us with presents if we sit in the patch overnight. So that Liveblog better be up soon. Talk Michigan if you can't wait, or head over to the first game thread while it's going. Everyone hyping the 2-3, saying no one can handle it, and it's a great season no matter what. But we're there, and there are no Kentucky juggernauts this year....and who knows who stays? Might as well win it this year. Why not us? Four down, two to go. Go Blue!

Not even nervous for this game. Most likely because I didn't expect to come this far. My mindset was Sweet Sixteen at the minimum and anything more is amazing.

2011 Frozen Four I was so nervous I felt like throwing up before the game. Especially the title game. Due to the success of the hockey program, I expected the national title. 

Regardless of what happens in ATL, this season has been a dream. Only the third team in program history to win at least 30 games. Amazing.

No matter what happens tonight, this season was a success.

But hell, we're already here. And who knows when we'll be here again. Let's win this damn thing.

That was creep status. But i'm drunk and just in a mess around mood. I was totally fucking around though, i just wanted to be an ass hole. Please don't take me with any bit of seriousness. But in all seriousness, that is a cute picture and he should be a proud dad to have some pretty obviously cool kids.

I didn't realize "dick around with the ball 25 feet from the hoop" was the proper play to run with 20 seconds left when you're down by 4.

Wichita State got what they deserved the way they played those last 10 minutes. They played right into Louisville's hands after they went up by 11.
