stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
Damn you rock. Damn you.
I hear a lot of people being upset that last shot didn't roll our way, but...free throws. Shouldn't have come to that.
I thought watching this would help with my "healing process", but it just made it worse. I still cannot believe that last sequence and especially that Morgan's put-back didn't go down. How can he sleep at night? I would replay that in my head every minute. I feel for him and the team...
At least we get a chance to play again Thursday and I hope they are fired up with an angry attitude.
I feel better now. It just wasn't in the cards yesterday.
What I like is that the BTT lines up perfectly for redemption:
1st round PSU
4th hopefully Bucky but MSU would be fine.
I think that we are going to win all four games and all is going to be forgiven. We are a good team that has learned sme terrible lessons this year but the ball will bounce our way next weekend.
count on it.
We are the dead.
You sir, are an optimistic man. Of the first 3 teams they are 1-4 and Sparty and Ohio were beaten by a combine 2 points. If they can't improve on boxing out, rebounding, and defense this is going to be a short tournament.
We are a good team. And I think we will show that this weekend. I also think that the revenge factor in these games (especially the first two) bodes well for our coming to play.
Not all who wander are lost...
1) refs don't like calling flagrant fouls when Michigan players are flagrantly fouled.
2) free throws are very far from free when in relation to Michigan
3) Getting down early and blowing leads is an art Michigan has perfected
4) Interior defense is either not very high on the list of priorities or the Michigan coaches are really really bad.
5) Tom Crean behaves like a small child win or lose and is best to just ignore.
Your welcome... the end.
When we used that last time out, I had flashbacks of Chris Webber going through my head. We lost the game, but at least it wasn't as heinous of a loss as that. #brightside
Plus, am I the only one that thinks the regular season Big 10 Champs is a ridiculous title? It's like finishing the NFL season and the team with the most wins says, "We're regular season champions!" Congratulations... nobody cares. Go win the Big 10 tournament (playoffs) and then we'll talk about how you're champions. Am I right? There's the Big 10 tournament champions and then there's the NCAA tournament champions. Everything else is bogus.
Did last year's B1G title mean nothing?
Regular season B1G champs is a culmination of a season's worth of effort. B1G tourney is one, hot weekend. It has some bearing on NCAA seeding and helps if you're a long-shot winner, but for higher eschelon teams the season resume is what the NCAA selection committee looks at.
Season champ than tournament. How does a 3-4 game winning streak outweigh the conference schedule??
People remember the season champion more than the tournament champion, partly because it is won over the course of a whole season, not ust 4 days. You only have to defeat 3 or 4 teams to win the tournament. It favors a team with depth and who gets hot at the right time.

Actually, everyone here is wrong. The answer is that when Michigan wins the regular season championship, then it's more important than the big ten tourney championship, and vice versa.

You have to be into some serious S&M if you're watching this one.
