Not that we don’t admire Michigan’s sizzle, but between this and Kevin Ware, it’s getting really hard to pull against Louisville.
Speaking of Michigan, Jalen Rose is trying to get the Fab Five back together for the championship game, but Chris Webber is still staying away. Rose thinks it has to do with his sixth timeout against UNC in 1993, and our guess is that he’s right. For all of Webber’s tough guy persona, when you get past that, he’s a very sensitive man. That’s not really a mystery or anything. But our guess – and that’s all it is – is that a driving force for Webber is shame. Just as he never got over the timeout (and the timeout chart Michigan fans had during the Wichita State game probably didn’t help in this regard), we expect he’s still ashamed over the trial and his subsequent banishment from the Michigan family, which ends this year.
He can posture all he wants to, but this is still the kid whose mother told him not to hide his light under a bushel. He knows he did; he s

Heading into the NCAA Tournament, I decided I’d ride with the Big East until the wheels fell off. Since this is the final opportunity for the Big East to enter the record books, I thought it would be awesome to go out with a bang. That was up until Michigan, my first true college basketball love, made a run all the way to tonight’s championship game against Louisville...

Tonight's NCAA Championship Game between Michigan and Louisville is the first appearance for the Wolverines in the final since 1993 and the days of the Fab Five.

Although multiple players...

How could C Webb not being haunted by the timeout? The only thing I can equate it to, is the Bill Buckner error in the World Series.
It might even be worse, because it was compounded by the fact that Webber, was also involved in a scandal, that led to him being banned from the University, Michigan being put on probation, wins being vacated and the Fab 5 banners being taken down....
