    Sparties looking awfully tough. UNC looks like they'll win easily at the half. UNC blew us out at Ford Field in Dec with State minus Suton.

    It's gonna be an interesting re-match on Monday.


    GO GREEN!!!

    I think another guy was out for us too.

    It's going to be very tough, but these guys play with heart.

    GO GREEN!!! :cheers::p_welldone:

    We need to lose out so we can have a shot at Ty Lawson.

    This WAS the championship for me. The FINAL FOUR and making it to the final game! I had a great time at Hooters and in the chat room. I know I'll get picked on but it was an unforgettable night for me.

    The dunk was awesome. Powered it past Robinson's attemped block. That told a lot about the heart of the team. At that point, they were not to be denied.

    I watched the entire game at a fellow Sparty's house. Great fun. And the Pizza Hut chicken alfredo and bread sticks made it all the better.

    So nice to see something good happen for Michigan for a change.

    Of course. That was great.

    But were things as bleak then as they are now?

    Plus hockey, unfortunately, is not as big a deal in most places as it is in Detroit. The NCAA final is big throughout the country.

    March Madness is big in Michigan at the end of decades???

    1979 Spartans win NCAA title beating Indiana State

    1989 Wolverines win NCAA title beating Seton Hall

    1999 Spartans lose in semi finals to Duke, but return to win it all in 2000 over Fla.

    2009 Spartans vs North Carolina ?

    Spartans played a half court game and wore out the Cardinals, and then switched to a run and gun, outside shooting game to defeat UConn. I like their chances against the Heels.

    I just wanted to point out that as of last night, it's down to me and Tha Locstah for the PF.com March Madness Bracket Challenge. Go MSU!!!!

    Also, I am living proof that the first rounds don't matter as long as you get the picks right later on. I was living it up at the absolute bottom with TaShaun and Aurora for weeks before totally leapfrogging my way up to 2nd place after the last few games. :eek: :love:
