Erin Andrews, a FOX Sports broadcaster and Florida alum, lost a bet to NFL Network’s Rich Eisen, a Michigan Man, following the Gators 79-59 loss to the Wolverines in the Elite Eight on Sunday. The wager? Andrews had to change here Twitter avatar to a photo of Eisen. According to a tweet from Andrews, that avatar must remain on her account for the next three days while The Rich Eisen Podcast gets some free publicity from Andrews’ 1.7 million Twitter followers. Misery loves company, as Andrews is attempting to spark a new friendly bet between Eisen and ESPN play-by-play announcer Mike Tirico, a Syracuse grad. Tirico’s Orange will take on Eisen’s Wolverines in next weekend’s Final Four in Atlanta. Thumbnail via Facebook/Erin Andrews

The Gators had a solid, but unspectacular season. Six of the fifteen presason top 25s I tracked in the Vitale Cup included the Gators in their preseason top 10, and it's likely that fewer prognosticators will be that bullish this year. UF graduates Kenny Boynton, Mike Rosario and Erik Murphy, and there's a solid chance that junior Patric Young departs early for the draft...

As a collective group, this trio is more substance than flash.
Reserves Will Yeguete, Michael Frazier and Casey Prather are critical to Florida's success but they garnered little attention leading into Friday night's showdown with Florida Gulf Coast...
Spike Albrecht shined while Trey Burke sat.
After all that, Michigan and Louisville were still pretty much even. Then the Wolverines couldn't stop Louisville in the second half.
With Burke on the bench in early foul trouble, the seldom-used Albrecht scored 17 points in the first half, and the Wolverines led by 12 in Monday night's national title game. But that lead was...
It looked like Michigan was headed home than Trey Burke decided to take over. He scored all of 23 points in the 2nd half and overtime and he hit a deep three pointer to send the game into overtime. Michigan beat Kansas by 2 and went on to cruise past Florida in the Elite 8. This is Michigan’s first trip to the Final Four since the Fab 5.
“We never had the mindset that we...
Michigan freshman shooting guard Nik Stauskas knocked down his first three in the Wolverines win against Florida and never looked back. Stauskas knocked down six for the game in a 22 point effort and talks about his performance afterward.
Trey Burke and the Michigan Men's Basketball team are moving on to the Elite 8 for the first time since 1994. I can't actually talk about this yet without my heart still racing or without me getting emotional. Yes, I'm that girl.I was out for happy hour with my friend David & we watched the Michigan/Kansas basketball game in a bar where I'm confident I was the...
Mitch McGary faced some unexpected adversity in Michigan’s last game versus Kansas, but was able to overcome it by delivering yet another monster effort. His emergence is one to the tournament’s top stories, but it has many observers wondering what brought it about. McGary sat down with the media to shed light on his physical and mental growth, the tone he sets for his team...
The Michigan Wolverines are off to the Final Four, and the superstar three-point shooting and passing of Nik Stauskas is a huge reason why.
The what ifs of March Madness. Michigan advanced to the Elite 8 after beating Kansas on Friday night thanks to the heroic effort from Trey Burke.
Riding high off their victory, the Wolverines showed a mark of good sportsmanship by high-fiving with their potential opponents, Florida Gulf Coast. Although the two won’t be facing off for a spot in the Final Four, apparently everyone...
