Douche Lord of the Week: I'm talking about Michigan today, so the DLoW is being picked in anticipation of the comments he will likely make about my Wolverines. He also said Sullinger will be returning to anOSU next year...douche lord. Enjoy Tress's love tunnel.
Finally, March Madness is here. At the beginning of the season I had no idea I would be in this place. Michigan is fucking relevant! We aren't 10th in the conference like everybody thought we would be. We aren't just some scrappy, young team who rains threes all day and gets dominated by the big boys. We belong in the tourney.
And Joe Lunardi agrees, for now. According to Bracketology--how worthless of a human do you have to be to make up a title for yourself? Bracketologist?--Michigan is among the last four in, along with Baylor, Richmond, and Alabama. Of course, the regular season isn't over and conference tournaments are just getting started so Lunardi's projections are about as useful as Mel Kiper's cum sock's(McShay) NFL scouting.
But it all basically comes down to Saturday at Crisler Arena. Sparty comes to town. If we win, we will sweep the season series and likely push Little Brother out of the tournament for the first time in EVER. And we will win because Darius Morris is the best point guard in the B1G. We will win because Tim Hardaway Jr. one of the best freshmen in the country. We will win because John Beilein is the coach of the year. But most importantly, we will win because Zack Novak is a fucking assassin who will not let Michigan's tournament hopes die at the hands of their biggest hoops rival at home. Zack Novak will dominate because that is all Zack Novak knows how do to.
That's really all I have to say.
30 for 30. 30 for 30 is one of the greatest things ESPN has ever done, and that includes introducing Erin Andrews to your spank bank. I've never liked Bill Simmons, but this creation is just great. However, there is one story out there that is glaringly, obviously lacking from the 303 for 30 lineup. No, not the Toledo Rockets point shaving scandal--Free Scooter!--,The Fab Five. But alas, on March 13th, one day before the start of the NCAA tournament, Bill Simmons will roll out "The Fab Five". I cannot fucking wait.
Say what you want about the scandal, but that team changed the landscape of college basketball forever. And more importantly, got "Stockton shorts" out of everyone's ass.
