Where's the replay? And don't give me any of that mgovideo bs - it's not up yet.
I want to watch now!
If you watched the game with Nessler and Bilas play-by-play (the world feed), you gotta ask yourself what exact problem Bilas has with Michigan. The guy seemed constantly annoyed Michigan had the lead, praised Syracuse and had almost nothing good to say about Michigan and the moment we won he already basically talked about how Louisville was going to beat us. The guy is way more anti-Michigan than Herbstreit who is fairly impartial in spite of being a Buckeye. Why?
Bilas has always hated Michigan. He's the guy who went after Manny Harris like a maniac when he inadvertently caught the Purdue guard with an elbow (Bilas later had to apologize). He's a Dookie and it goes way back to the Fab 5. Ignore him.

Every game, the rhetoric is always the same...and Michigan proves everyone wrong.
First SDSU was experienced and wanted to play Michigan. Michigan was headed for another early exit. Michigan started slow, and pounded them in the 2nd half.
Then there was no way Michigan could handle VCU's press. Michigan destroyed it in every way possible in a blowout.
Then Kansas' size was going to be a huge disadvantage. What was Michigan going to do with Withey inside? McGary just goes for 25 and 14 and Trey Burke hits arguably the greatest shot in Michigan history to put Michigan in the Elite 8.
Florida, though...way too athletic for Michigan. They want to be sped up too and have better players. Michigan puts on a clinic and heads to the Final Four with a 20 point win.
Then came the Syracuse ZOOOOOOONE. How was Michigan ever going to get a shot off? What would they do defensively with all of Syracuse's length? They ran the offense to perfection in the first half and built up and 11 point lead before being able to hold on in a game where Trey Burke and Stauskas did NOTHING offensively.
Now there's no way Michigan can handle Louisville's press and athleticism. I love that the national media doubts Michigan every week. They'll be proved wrong again on Monday night.
I agree with this. I don't expect the championship game to be easy, but UL is a 4 point favorite. Really? Has anyone been watching the two teams play in the tournament? UM has more talent, is playing better and shredded the two teams that play most similarly to UL. This game could go either way and probably will be a shootout. And it should be fun to watch. But no way should UL be a 4 point favorite.
It should be a pick'em at this point I don't care about Vegas or KenPom at this point...meaningless.
Watched the game last night with a few co workers at Wings'N Things sports bar in Saline. How fitting after all the I talk about Morgan he took the charge and made the dunk at the end of the game? Once he slammed that last one home, one of my buddies that was with me (who happens to be an OSU fan) just looked at me and grinned. Other people were in the bar hugging, slapping hands, jumping up and down and clapping. I just stayed at my table staring at the TV with a grin. Drove home back to Livonia with a smile the whole way. Unreal stuff going around, I have felt since the Kansas game that this team has the magic and destiny is on our side. I think we take it all home monday night (I have to go into work because someone is on vacation )
Let's go get that National Championship

I really think UL is a better matchup for us then Syracuse
Funny .... listening to College Sports on XM, ESPN Radio, etc., NOBODY is picking Michigan. Just the way I like it.

Hell yeah. Same here. Has there ever been a team in the National Championship who the experts picked against every single game?
So true, we have beaten Jim Boeheim, Billy Donovan, Bill Self, and Shocka Smart and no one is giving us credit
OMG ..... Spartan board has like a half a dozen threads or more all on MICHIGAN!! ..... Honestly, has a single fan base every been so ?? What will Sparty do when Michigan reloads at basketball, and secures commits from the #1 AND #2 football players in the country?
It is called a good ole' fashion Sparty !!!
Sparty!. Got any quesitons on my post pm me.
Just finished watching Mcgary's verbal pledge to Michigan on espnu and I have to say, what most & all UM fans should know about MM. Classy kid all the way around. No hat show, no pony tricks, just stated the relationship & trust with the UM coaching stuff is what did it for him. Man I'm getting emotional.
All I'm saying is that last night, there were multiple posters talking about mass suicide...
No point in talking about Sparty anymore. With our basketball program having become nationally prominent again (regardless of what happens on Monday), with football on the way back to regular programming i.e. dominance, MSU is a pointless non-entty.
Let's face it, when things are normal Sparty is so far beneath Michigan, there's no need to discuss them, there's bigger fish to fry. Sparty only looms big when things aren't going well because it means Mchigan has dropped toward their level.

Well said. Can't say I ever worried about sparty football overtaking Michigan until richrod got to U of M. Hopefully things will be righted soon.
Above The RIM.
Doug Gottlieb was also quite douchy towards us at halftime.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
They already have and we we will be better for good when Hand and Peppers commit to play for Michigan.
So perfect. Heisman and Wooden, side-by-side.
Any pictures of Denard or Zack Novak at the game? Read that Kovacs was there as well.
Gottlieb's a douche to just about everyone. I don't even think his colleagues like him much.
