Ran into a Michigan alum today that went to the game last night and he was bummed. Told him the Coogs would have happily taken away that pain for him. He said we wouldn’t have fared any better but I told him I would take a blowout loss in the Finals any day.
I was surprised he expected a different outcome - UM’s road to the Finals had 14, 6, 7, 9 and 11 seeds. That has to be one of the easiest in tourney history. Villanova cruised to the Championship winning every game by at least 12 points or at least that is what I think I heard [maybe it was avg margin of victory]
