It's like the Red Sea has parted for us. Now we just have to hit a few more shots... the way....aside from Poole's dramatics the best thing about this weekend was MSU going down at home against a team that had to play its way into the tournament. Soft...soft...soft. First MTSU last year now this. Life is indeed good.

is the most fun first weekend of NCAA Tourney basketball in Michigan history.  Unreal!

Now time to take advantage of the bracket and play like we were at the end of the season and in the BTT.

We have a helluva team and a terrific coach.  Let's go kick some ass at the Sweet Sixteen!

Great coach, but he screwed that game up badly. Stayed in a 1-3-1 zone that FSU started shredding. And then never got Blueitt a shot down the stretch

also needed a timout earlier during FSU's run,  His team looked frazzled on offense in addition to the zone issue you mentioned.

Very "Izzo-like".  Perhaps they can discuss strategies together this week with all their free time.

Again, how important is it to survive and advance, ugly, lucky, or whatever.

This is hands down the craziest tournament I can recall.

And Michigan used up its share of "ugly, lucky and whatever" this weekend.

Next week, how about we try to play like we did in the BTT and "thrive and advance".  Just a thought!  

Go Blue!

Every game will be a tremendous challenge for us, but we just might be favored in every single game that we play until the championship! Hopefully getting two competitive tournament games under our belt will allow us to get some renewed confidence and return to B1G tournament form. If we play like that, we will be playing on a Monday night in April against a juggernaut like Villanova, Kansas, or Duke.

This tournament has been simply incredible! I want to hear Matt Shepard say: ‘ Jordan Poole wears a crown on a Monday night in Dallas!’

For all that bitching we did about our seeding . . . we are now the top seed in our region.

That's one way to do it.

We're the defacto 1 seed of the West.
