I turned on the TV looking for the Pistons game only to find myself center stage with the Wolverines and Syracuse, 20 seconds left, Michigan up by one. Inbounding. Here we go! After getting the ball to Derrick Walton, Jr., he went to the free throw line on a one-and-one. Walton hit the front of the rim and missed! Syracuse took the rebound an [...]
Damn. Maybe I had it more relaxing in certain ways than these student-athletes. MM can’t even puff in a city where it’s essentially legalized. It is decriminalized, and you’ll only receive a ticket like a parking fine. “One night in mid-March, with the NCAA tournament about to begin without him, McGary was hanging out [...]
KO for UK GOT IT Congratulations to Michigan on an amazing season.
Check us into the boards. Beat the shit out of us. Whistle whip us to death. We’ll still tie it up on you. -Big Ten Champions -Elite 8 -Next year? We sure represented, Michigan. (Head held high.)
It was a similar finish to the Michigan game. Down two, Virginia heaved a half court buzzer-beater and bricked. These eight teams will try and win their respective regions and cut down the nets this weekend (Snarfs pick): Florida vs. Dayton (Flyers) Wisconsin vs. Arizona (Wildcats) Michigan State vs. Connecticut (Spartans) Michigan vs. Kentuc [...]
We really played well. Things just got a little sketchy at the end… The Wolverines led 45-34 at halftime. We essentially kept a double-digit lead all the way through to 70-60 with 3:41 to play. Then, the Volunteers started to make buckets. After a Jordan Morgan dunk, Michigan only scored one point in the final two minutes. Turnover #1 ( [...]
In addition to the Wolverines advancing to the Sweet 16, Michigan State made it for back-to-back years by both schools. Last season was the first time it’d ever been done. The Spartans beat Harvard, who were coached by former Michigan head coach Tommy Amaker. Also, the Detroit Red Wings beat the Wild in Minnesota 3-2. After giving up an [...]
The NCAA Tournament is loco. My blood is now officially at boiling room temperature for the next weeks. Michigan started a little slow, but Big Ten Player of the Year Nik Stauskas made our first two shots, both 3’s, to keep it even early. The Wolverines honestly played great except for surrendering offensive rebounds. We led 43-30 at th [...]
Wofford, you barked but didn’t bite. You fouled the sh out of us, but our coach kept us calm. Great defense by the Blue allowing 20 points in each half. Stay grounded, G’s.
December 2, 2006 Michigan defeated Wofford on a Saturday afternoon in Ann Arbor. It might have been my best memory of attending a Wolverine basketball game in college. My buddies and I were nicely intoxicated, and my buddy wore a “FUCK WOFFORD” T-Shirt. The police stopped him in the Crisler bathroom and politely told him to flip h [...]
