Agreed. Michigan overall was a classy opponent and I wish them luck. Stauskas' attitude was a little too "Jimmer-esque" for my taste, but other than that I like their team.

The time off isn't optimal, but it does allow time to soak up the exposure of winning the conference and also probably give sus time to decompress after one tournament before heading to the other.

We definitely structure our tourney to end on Monday night so we get the ESPN2 slot that we wouldn't otherwise have if we ended Sunday night instead (to the detriment of fan attendance at times). Please show me the statute that dictates when conferences can host their tournaments and I'll yield the point, but I feel pretty certain on this.

The television thing makes perfect sense. I should have thought about that.

Michigan beating Texas by 18 with little over 4 minutes left in first half. Just like BYU game, out loss I probably going to be closer than next opponent or two.

Remember that we got a lot of respect from Bo Ryan and Wisconsin. Read this from Rick Reilly.
