I’ve long had this theory that at any given time, the University of Michigan can only have two successful sports of the three top sports: football, basketball, and ice hockey. (Aka, the sports where Michigan has traditionally excelled.)
A key data point has come this year: Michigan’s football team collapsed. But to even out the cosmic karma and keep the 2 of 3 rule alive, Michigan’s basketball team has made it to the NCAA tournament!
Just something to keep in mind…
