Sports fandom is so odd. People seem to like UM basketball right now but each and every football game of theirs is preceded by pics of the UM/AppSt. scoreboard and all that.

GOAT Coast stuff I get, everyone loves an underdog and they were a blast to watch. UM is still the same school it always was but people jumped on the wagon recently.

I'm from Michigan and they're the last Michigan team in the tourney.

ftr have always been a pretty strong Michigan fan in general due to significant family ties, but historically that's been more about following their football team. Would guess this type of team and run brings out a lot of semi-bandwagoners like that

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Pet Talk

My interest in Michigan lies more in the fact that they have two lotto caliber players who will be entering the 2013 draft, and my favorite NBA team will have two lotto picks. I could not care less whether they win, I just like seeing Trey and Mitch PWN and envision them doing that for my team.

fwiw i absolutely hated the michigan basketball team while I was an undergrad in Ann Arbor. I ****ed hated Brent Petway and they sucked anyways. Liked them a lot more once he left.

Also, phildo, I'm glad you think about me so much irl.

McGary isn't the second most likely guy to go pro. In fact, he's like #4.

1) Burke
2) Hardaway
3) Robinson
4) McGary

McGary has not been very good for the entire year. He had his moments, and seems to have broken out during the tournament, but I'll be super surprised if he has the demand to leave this year.

This is what I was getting at (thought not at Ikes). I'd think they'd have more haters in general.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Pet Talk

Burke's got that "I can do this in the 4th quarter of playoff games" vibe. Pretty rare attribute. McGary puts together 3 more games in the tourney like his first 3 and he gone.

It's not just the NBA range; it's the rare playmaking ability in the half-court in high-leverage spots. If he can get some better finishing skills, gets stronger, etc. he can develop into a major weapon. His ceiling is Tony Parker with an outside shot.

you seem very angry; maybe medical research (in a lab, away from people) is more your speed

fwiw, watched most michigan games this year, DE video, in addition to reading scouting reports and others' synopses who have watched michigan more closely than I

i don't root against teams because of specific posters. still, games where your teams aren't playing sure are a hell of a lot more fun to watch when there's a clear side to root against
