Big Ten Geeks: Our Michigan vs. Syracuse preview

After nearly five months of basketball, we’re now down to the Final Four, with Michigan the lone Big Ten representative. Needless to say, a national title for the Wolverines would provide a nice boost for the conference’s reputation, as banners carry more lasting relevance than computer ratings that have pegged the Big Ten as the nation’s best conference for three years running. Rightly or wrongly, postseason success trumps all else. With that in mind, what are Michigan’s chances Saturday night against Syracuse? KenPom projects the game as a virtual toss-up, with the Wolverines favored by a 67-66 score in 63

Michigan has lots in common with 1989 title team

Of the seven Big Ten teams selected for the NCAA tourney back on March 17, I didn’t think Michigan would be the last one standing. Not by a long shot. But, here are the Wolverines, heading to Atlanta for the school’s first Final Four since it made back-to-back runs in 1992 and 1993 behind the “Fab Five.” In some ways, though, Michigan’s run to college hoops Holy Grail shouldn’t be a shock. The similarities between this Michigan squad and the one that claimed the school’s last championship in 1988-89 are striking. To start with, many have referenced that ’88-89 season

Video: Bacari gives another literal pep talk

Michigan assistant Bacari Alexander is known for his cheesy pregame pep talks, and he added another example prior to the South Region final Sunday. This time, Alexander used his literal tactics to hammer home the importance of a sports cliche. Alexander, stressing that the team had to play with a chip on its shoulder vs. Florida, placed a potato chip on the left shoulder of the team’s starters. Watch Alexander’s speech at the 1:15 mark of the video above. Here’s what Alexander told the Wolverines after he placed the chip on their shoulders: “I tell you what, fellas, you got

Video: Michigan highlights on way to Final Four

On its way to its first Final Four since 1993, Michigan compiled plenty of highlights.

Burke, Michigan highlight NCAA second weekend

A weekend that began with promise for the Big Ten ended amid more disappointment than joy. Many felt the nation’s best league had a chance for multiple teams in the Final Four—maybe even four. But in the end, Michigan was the lone survivor. In fact, the Wolverines and Ohio State were the only Big Ten team to make it to the Elite Eight. No. 1 Indiana and No. 3 Michigan State fell in the Sweet 16 to Syracuse and Duke, respectively. The Orange, for what it’s worth, advanced to the Final Four. Michigan is in the Final Four for the

Big Ten Geeks: Say Yes to Michigan!

With two-and-a-half minutes left against Kansas, Michigan was losing by 10, and its season looked done. From that point on, Michigan went on a 104-72 run over the rest of the weekend. Trey Burke’s heroics were followed up by the complete demolition of Florida, which had the unfortunate luck of drawing “December Michigan.” If you recall, this was the Wolverines team that wasn’t all that fond of missing shots. Back then, Nik Stauskas was hitting something like 60 percent of his three-point attempts. Against Florida, he made all six. But the real story over this Tournament has been the play
