I understand. I've just never seen it happen.
I don't see where we get people racking their brains to come up with these examples get us anywhere. The act of purposing fouling in order to win a game happens just about every game and often. It's a basic strategy in basketball 101. In the case of the Mich game, it was disadvantageous that they hadn't fouled more as it meant that the other team was not forced to the FT line. This sets basketball apart from the other sports. If you want to draw equivalencies with football, let the other team decline the bonus FT shots
