Big one. Thought of it. No shot more directly resulted in that ring than Robinson's FTs though.

Good argument to have.

Maybe not the biggest, but most definitely my favorite:

For favorites, I am going to have to go with this one:
http://mgoblog.com/content/michigan-...-poole-forever

but it was such a surreal experience. I wasn't engaged fully as a fan, so there was more immediate joy when Trey hit his, and probably also with Higgins vs. The Flying Illini and Jimmy King vs. UCLA. But, after the initial moment, the ripple-effect from The Big Splash in the Flatlands made for an unforgettable night.

Webber, Burke, Rose and Rice on Rushmore...

Then Jimmy King, Timmy Jr., Juwan, McGary when healthy, Gary Grant, and Mo might be in that group... Maybe a couple I forget... Jamal Crawford needed another season, i believe he even had a shortened season...

---

Next season? Replacing Mo and MAAR will be difficult enough and Duncan finished his season strong... No seniors next season, I won't have too high expectations as far as competing for B1G or FF...

M will need some players to really step up, Livers, Poole, and a true freshman or two like Iggy or Johns. .

Agree on Webber, Burke, and Rice, but not Rose.

Rose was almost as important as Webber for the back to back NT games. He was the teams leader, ran the offense and had alot of charisma.

He was the leader but I don't remember him running any offense. The team was horribly turnover prone and his assist/TO ratio sucked ass. He was also a mediocre 3-point shooter.

The team didn't run much of an offense. Fisher specialized in defense and not knowing about Ed Martin. Bo had his reasons to be wary.

For me personally I am limiting myself to those I watched myself. IMO Webber is asterisked out, which is an awful shame. So for me a Rushmore would be Rice, Burke, Rose, Wagner. In that order.

I have too many memories of Rose jacking up crappy shots and turning the ball over on crappy passes into traffic for me to put him up there with the rest.

Actually Howard deserves to be on the side of that mountain too, now that I think of it. More than Rose IMHO.

I think you have to give some love to the 76 team that lost in the Championship game to undefeated Indiana. That was a damn good team

Ricky Green should get some consideration

Howard admittedly was a better basketball player than Webber at Michigan. Webber was the most dominant because he was infinitely more gifted but Juwan was a technician. Really would have been Wooden material had he ever played with a true point. When he got the ball on the block you were at his mercy.
