Every once in a while you read something that just makes you stop and realize what an under achiever you are in life!

In all my years I never got this drunk and had this much fun :o :o :o

The not having the correct plate on the vehicle is interesting.  Maybe planning ahead for an evening of debauchery?

I see that Izzo did another masterful coaching job in the NCAA Tourney.

Another second round exit with his best team ever.

How is that going to raise enough money to pay off all those lawsuits?

Lots of questionable coaching decisions this tourney... 

Are they all shook up thinking about the FBI sting still?

While I don't do sports like you guys do, I'm on the fence with Izzo.  I think there is some 'baggage' involved.  They took a whipping from Syracuse.

I also tend to think there is no 'love lost' between Izzo and Engler, but then my opinion of Engler isn't stellar either.

One more win for Hockey - and both Basketball and Hockey are in the Final and Frozen Four!

It's GREAT to be a MICHIGAN WOLVERINE!

I already tell my grandkids how we survived the dark years of one of the WV Coaches that came here to shake up Football... 
The other one has always been solid in basketball and this year is looking great so far with a great defense.

Can defense win championship in a sport around scoring like basketball?    Pistons showed it true once...

Michigan has gotten lots of good coaches out of Wonderful Wild West Virginia.

Bev Plocki is one.

Beilein for sure.

How about Fielding Yost?

Basketball in the Final 4.

Hockey in the Frozen 4.

Looks like 3/4 teams in the Frozen 4 will be from the B1G.

That is what I call a pretty good weekend.

And folks wonder why college tuition is so high......forget about the fact that sports programs bring in a lot of money to the universities, but my God if common sense would prevail in settlements to college coaches than some of that savings could be passed on to the student body in the form of reduced tuition.

I would say more schools lose money on Sports than make it.
