    Having these kids play on Christmas is just stupid in my opinion. I don’t get that at all.

    Gonna be a lot of time for this team to grow and gel… Gonna go 11 games before playing a likely tournament team.

    If that’s not enough… 7pm on NYE

    Given the green vs red matchup for Wisconsin-MSU, I think Gard and Izzo should both have to coach in Santa costumes.

    And Loyer & Davidson should have to play with elf ears. Davidson is definitely a South Pole though.

    I mean this in the kindest possible way. I honestly think we should just be thankful that we have college basketball and Michigan Basketball in particular. On March 12 of last year 15 minutes or so before the scheduled tipoff of Michigan’s opening round game in the B1G Tournament, as I sat in front of my TV excitedly awaiting the game, I had no idea that there would be no more basketball for the rest of the year. If we cannot play NC State on Wednesday, and that seems probable at this point, I would love to watch Michigan play Wake or Western or just about anyone.

    This is going to get worse before it gets better and we need, I think, to cherish every game our young men get to play and every game that we are privileged to watch. This is just the perspective of a little old silver haired Michigan Basketball fan who dearly wants to see our guys play, SAFELY, as many times as possible until we can get on the other side of this pandemic. I just know that it can be taken away at any moment, and that nothing is a given, at this point. If we can’t play NC State I would love to watch a UM vs Wake game!
