I guess this is as good a place as any for me to put this. I don't post on here anymore. I really haven't in quite some time. The reason is that I just get sick of reading the comments of those who would disparage our kids and constantly criticize our coach. So, let me just say, what a great win by our kids today! AND what a great coaching job by our coaching staff! Thanks, Derrick, Zac, Mark, Sean, and Andrew. You, the seniors, are very special young men. You are University of Michigan Basketball Players. You will graduate with a MICHIGAN degree! There are not many folks who can make that claim, a Michigan degree and a Michigan basketball player. Please understand that most of those who may criticize you have NO CLUE! You've had outstanding careers, and I am so proud of the players and young men that you have become. Thanks to everyone on this team for the GREAT team victory today! Thanks Coach B. You now have 501 wins in DIVISION I basketball. I dare say that those who criticize you probably don't have 51 division I basketball victories COMBINED, but they love to be critical. This was a masterful job today by a coach who knows how to win, a coach who knows how to coach. Thanks to our assistants. You fellas are doing an outstanding job. Thanks for being part of this program. We had a great defensive scheme today, and I know that you, along with Coach B, are responsible for that. Mo Weezy, wow! Just WOW! Please come back. You know you want to! DJ, we got into foul trouble with our bigs, and coach B sent you in to defend the Purdue giants, and you acquitted yourself so well. To those who say you are not a five, well, you sure were today. No, check that, you were a BASKETBALL player. To MAAR, and Duncan, and X, thanks for a great game! I'm proud so of you, and I know many others are, too. And to those who show up at practice EVERYDAY and give everything you've got, whether you get much playing time or not, thanks! You're special young men, performing a task that is very difficult. So, I'll be criticized for saying folks shouldn't come on here and criticize. That's OK. I don't care. I'm 70 years old. Yep, like someone on here called me, an "old man." So your criticism doesn't bother me. I've been a MICHIGAN Basketball fan since before many of you were born. Hell, I was coaching, and winning games, since before many of you were born. Criticize ME all you want. Just remember this, these kids and coaches give their HEART and SOUL everyday to MICHIGAN basketball. I am so proud of them. To those of you who, like me, try to be as positive as possible, thanks to you as well. I love reading your posts. I KNOW the kids appreciate your support. By the way, I also KNOW that Coach B doesn't really care what his critics think. He really doesn't. He just coaches, everyday, all year long. So, GREAT win! Let's keep it rolling. We need this effort and enthusiasm every game. It can still be a very SPECIAL season. And even if it doesn't rise to what some on here think is "special" just know that there are many of us on here who think YOU are very special! You are MICHIGAN BASKETBALL PLAYERS. Never forget what you've accomplished. Great win!
