The Sports Gag:
Tonight the NCAA Men’s Division I Championship Game will pit the #1 seed Louisville Cardinals against the #4 seed Michigan Wolverines. This will be Louisville’s 2nd Final Four or better tournament appearance in as many years, and this game marks Michigan’s first chance at a championship since the infamous 1993 Chris Webber timeout incident and the Ed Martin scandal. The Wolverines are looking for a modern success to clean away that mess on their record. As the Fab Five (minus Webber because he’s evidently a middle-aged traumatized pansy) make their return to watch their Wolverines have a shot at another title, lets take a look at that 1993 blunder by Mr. Webber.
This classic remains one of the great tournament blunders. Aside from being ultimately indecisive and luckily getting away with a walk, Webber goes on to get caught in the corner and calls a timeout when the team had none left. The result was a technical foul and a nail in the coffin for the Wolverines. Prior to the tim...

AROUND THE WEB
Chris Webber was the subject of much speculation over the past week on whether or not he would show up for a Fab Five reunion in Atlanta. Webber, who has shied away from the University of Michigan since a scandal involving him rocked the program, arrived in Atlanta to support the school in their title [...]
Chris Webber ended all the suspense. The former Fab Five member showed up at the national championship game Monday in Atlanta to root on the Michigan Wolverines as they took on the Louisville Cardinals.
Webber had a falling out with Michigan, and Jalen Rose and Jimmy King had said he wasn’t in contact with them. Looks like C-Webb changed his mind.
Chris Webber has kept his distance from Michigan since his role in the boosting scandal with Ed Martin led to sanctions for the University that included Michigan pulling down the Fab Five’s 1993 national finalist banner. But on the 20th anniversary of the “Fab 5″ making it to the NCAA finals, the school was once again back in the spotlight on Monday night. Jalen Rose, Juwan...
The Fab Five would love former Michigan teammate Chris Webber to be at the 2013 NCAA title game, but will he make an appearance?
Former five-time NBA All-Star Chris Webber showed up at the
Georgia Dome just about the time Michigan's starting lineup was
being introduced before the Wolverines squared off against
Louisville in Monday's night's national championship game.
There may not be a Fab 5 reunion like Jalen Rose wanted, but C Webb has arrived to support the Wolverines.

Jalen Rose called out Chris Webber on Monday morning, announcing
that all the members of Michigan's famed Fab Five but Webber have
committed to appearing at the Georgia Dome for tonight's NCAA
Championship to cheer on the Wolverines.
In the photo above, catch a glimpse of the notorious and ridiculously talented "Fab Five" squad rooting on their Alma mater Michigan as the Wolverines take on Louisville in tonight's national championship game. Creating a befitting buzz, this legendary quintet consisted of Jimmy King, Juwan Howard, Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Ray Jackson. Widely considered to be one of...
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....
Jalen Rose joined Bill Simmons for Grantland’s “BS Podcast” on Sunday night, and the former Fab Fiver issued a plea to his former teammate, Chris Webber, in hopes of getting Webber to attend Monday night’s national title game between Michigan and Louisville.
“Hopefully, he’s not the only person that chooses not to participate in celebrating Michigan basketball being back...
On TNT's Thursday broadcast of the Thunder-Warriors game, the broadcast booth will have a completely different look: there won't be a play-by-play announcer as reported by USA Today.
Steve Kerr, Chris Webber, and Reggie Miller, all three of whom are analysts for NBA games on TNT, will be manning the booth, creating an innovative, interesting (and potentially disastrous...
In a bizarre move, TNT will not use a play-by-play voice for Thursday’s Thunder/Warriors NBA game. Steve Kerr, Chris Webber and Reggie Miller will make up an all-analyst broadcast team for Thunder/Warriors Thursday night, TNT [...]
