The popular term is a "humblebrag".
The Ramblers scratched and clawed their way into the Elite Eight, beating Miami by two points before winning by only one point in two nail-biters against Tennessee and Nevada.
Sister Jean will be made available to the national media Friday morning for 15 minutes.
These or "Sister Jean" could make for a great drinking game. MI has advanced to the Final Four for the second time in the last six seasons.The Wolverines have 15 NCAA Tournament wins during that span, which is tied for the second-most of any school.
Here's how MI can overcome Loyola and make it to the championship.
Loyola is a perfectly compatible collection of players who have known and played with or against each other for years - in the case of Custer and Richardson, since 3rd grade.
The Wolverines (32-7) are preparing for a Loyola-Chicago team that is very similar, in several areas, to what MI wants to do at both ends of the floor.
The Ramblers have not had much success since that early title. Their four NCAA Tournament victories have come by an average of 18.2 points.
With the words "Sister Jean is in the building, '" the Day Before the Games at the Final Four is officially underway. She lives in Nigeria. It's just so nice to see her being honored like this. That's why she's in a wheelchair.
Sales for the latest Sister Jean bobblehead were at 9,760 as of Wednesday afternoon.
Chareda Ivey knew the shoes existed - her son gets credit for the acronym on the Nike website - and she smiled when she saw FINAO graffiti type across the front of Ingram's shoe. But she is also a major asset to the University. They entered the tournament a top-rated one-seed, after trading places with Virginia (no I'm not crying, you're crying) for the number-one rank in the country during the regular season.
The all-inclusive package cost about $400 each for each student.
The Final Four, college basketball's championship weekend, always creates a few quirky bets. The Ramblers do all of this while playing some of the best defense in basketball. "He pointed to the fact that the "Loyola Phoenix" was the only one at the first 20 games". (Though, to be fair, MI is a bigger-name program than Loyola, so, their guys were inherently recruited by at least one bigger name than the Loyola guys.) Still, no one on the court was a 5-star recruit and no one is a sure-thing for the National Basketball Association.
"Growing up, we'd watch the tournament and I remember Carson saying that at some time he was going to play in the tournament and have his One Shining Moment".
After becoming a nun in Iowa, Sister Jean returned to the West Coast and coached various girls teams - basketball, volleyball, softball, and even ping pong - in Los Angeles, at a school which hadn't previously offered sports.
But in the case of college hoops, particularly the NCAA Tournament, the sport got both the hero it needs and deserves in the Loyola Ramblers. She really understands the game.
Mike Lopresti, a Gannett News Service sports reporter whose column used to appear regularly in the Niagara Gazette, wrote about it in 2013, the 50th anniversary of the game and Loyola's historic 60-58 overtime victory. It's the first trip to the Final Four for Loyola since that 1963 team with four black starters helped break down racial barriers.
Moser got off to a tough start, with a 32-61 record and a switch from the Horizon League to the Missouri Valley Conference in his first three years.
betDSI.eu has three prop bets just for Sister Jean for the Loyola - Michigan semifinal. They make just 66% as a team, which is 326 nationally. "That would be fabulous", she told me. "It's so important that it's going to take some time". "Since they've never put their foot on an NCAA (Tournament) floor, they need to do that".
-Loyola's defense has been really good as well. "These guys have been investing for a long time on how hard they worked, how hard they believed, and we've kind of had this mantra about the process".
