I could just as easily say the same thing about Kansas... had they played the same way for the entire game, blah blah, but that discredits what Michigan did, and they're obviously pretty damn good, too.
They aren't this year's Kentucky.
I feel ya. I admitted I was absolutely mistaken. and technically I was calling for a 10 point spread...not sure I'd call that a steamroll. having said that....
do you really think Michigan played their best against Kansas???
Michigan is so totally beatable....but then ANYBODY is. just saying....they are starting 5 NBA players. that shit just doesn't happen very often...unless you're a Kansas/Duke/NC type school and even then it's not often. I do believe their best would've had a double digit win on KS. hell they laid an egg an miraculously managed to win anyways (thanks EJ).
all in all that was one of the most exciting games I've ever seen, and I'd have felt that way not being a fan of either school.
