But back to more important things. Obviously, we'll have to wait until Selection Sunday, but I'm pretty sure the 10-year drought is over. With its trouncing of Iowa yesterday, Michigan should be in the NCAA Tournament next Thursday or Friday. Congrats fellas, I really hope you understand how much you put people through (ahem, me) with that 10-22 stinker of a season a year ago.
Right around the time the buzzer sounded yesterday, I got this text from my friend Brad: "Rename that arena after Beilein." That's how long it has been since Michigan sports has had this good of a feeling. Seriously, we needed this after that debacle of a football season. And since it's I told you so season, I figured I'd drop this blast from the past on you. Here's what I wrote on this blog back on March 18, two days after Tommy Amaker got fired:
Personally I think Kruger or Beilein would be great fits here, and I would be happy with either. The next few weeks should be a real exciting time for Michigan basketball, and is probably Bill Martin's last chance to prove himself as an athletic director. All things considered, I WANT BEILEIN.
