Let's thank and say nice things about the basketball team and staff before the season ends in 4 weeks. While there were certainly moments of disappointment for Michigan fans at Crisler and in cyberspace, our disappointments must pale when compared to those of the players and staff. Or at least it should be so, if we put our participation in proper perspective. We were one rimmed out tip and one half-court throw from going 27-4 and a #1 seed. Instead we will have to be content with a 25-6 mark and a #3 seed. The Horror!
While we are far from assured of a better record next year--you can't lose a Trey Burke without it hurting big time--Michigan basketball has clearly returned to an elite level. I, for one, am thrilled to again be invested enough to be disappointed in the kind of losses we had this year.
