I just spent the last 98 minutes watching the ESPN 30 for 30 feature on the Fab 5. I was just 9 years old when they came on the scene in 1991, just old enough to understand how good they were. Those 5 players are definitely the reason I adopted Michigan as my favorite collegiate team. I even jumped on the bandwagon with apparel, sporting a fitted Michigan hat until it got too dirty to wear, a pair of shorts, and a sweatshirt for years. I believe my hatred of Duke largely stems from them beating Michigan, and that hatred still lingers inside my every time Duke is mentioned.

I’m not a huge Weber fan, but that has nothing to do with his time at Michigan on the Fab 5 — it’s because he overshadowed Penny Hardaway, my favorite player for many years who was the 3rd overall pick in 93 (Weber was 1st).
