By this time of year the attention of many Wolverine fans usually has shifted from U-M Basketball over to counting down the minutes until football season begins in September. But after Trey Burke's iconic shot, March Madness will live on a little longer than usual.

On Saturday April 6 at 8:49 p.m. Michigan Basketball will tip-off against the Syracuse Orange in their first Final Four appearance since 1993.

"Go Blue" has long been the chant of Michigan athletics, but in recent years maize has become the dominate color of fan apparel. So to celebrate U-M's trip to Atlanta with the fan's color of choice, we're compiling a "Maize Out" gallery of photos from our readers. We're looking for as much yellow as we can find — ranging from photos you've snapped at games earlier this year to your pet watching this year's tournament in a block-M jumper.

To be included in the gallery submit your photo by 11 pm. on April 6 using one of these methods:

  • Submit the photo using the form below
  • Use the hashtag #a2goblue on Instagram
  • Tweet the photo to: @annarborcom
