    This is great. Thanks for posting. I was just getting into Michigan basketball. I liked seeing Glen Rice come off the bench as a freshman.

    Still remember having my meal plan in the same dining hall as incoming freshmen Tarpley, Wade, Rellford, and Henderson. Tarpley looked like he weighed about 30 lbs. He filled out a bit by his senior year…

    I was 13…brings back great memories. Those were some big powerful teams.

    WOW that is the loudest I have ever seen Crisler… hope we can have that type of atmosphere again.

    I was at that game. That was a very imposing team that brought guys off the bench who could have started at other schools. Unfortunately, they were not a good tournament team. Barely got past Akron and then knocked out in the second round.

    Even more entertaining was Knight’s post-game presser.

    Great video.  I love how the network just took in the whole scene at the end, with no commentary, and showed it for a good minute.  Nowadays they’d show the celebration for maybe 4-5 seconds and then go to a commercial.
