What an exciting game!!! So, anyone enjoying a cold one? I'm drinking a Trogenator (it is lent after all). Let's enjoy! And beat Indiana!!!
spoiler alert: i linked this
Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye
Rejoice!! No more road games!!
Is so good.
I love Trey Burke
Trey has elevated.
I'm pretty sure that alot of us are already hammered.
That was a good timeout. The troops responded to it well.
had been drinking already quite a bit.. drunken rage came over me and i shut the game off.. got on my computer and put on the espn ticker just to keep tabs.. once it got close i came back to finish the game.
I did not want to witness another Penn State like moment this year..
at Bud Light. Have some respect for yourself and drink a decent beer.
Replied to wrong post.
Just to be safe, don't give it to him until November 12.
Man, that was intense. Wish I could have a beer to calm these nerves...
1. Anyone who doesn’t vote for Trey Burke as POY is fucking insane.
2. Not to be a buzzkill, but man this can be frustrating. I like this team, but why can’t we ever just put far less talented squads away? We just gave up 75 to Purdue. I think it’s fair to question Beilein’s ability to coach defense and mentally prepare his team for road play. That said, we're in a position to win a second straight Big Ten title, and let’s kick some ass this Sunday!
You can question every coach if you do that. Like how come IU cannot put away OSU at home and gets shut down. Crean can't coach offense and get his team ready to play?
I am frustrated with the defense also but I think it is less about scheme and more about effort at this point. We played some pretty good D vs. MSU (minus the rebounding thing). Tonight we could not stop a dribble drives.
Losing to a top-15 team at home is not the same as losing to the worst team in the conference after being up 15. Not one of the other elite teams in the Conference have played as poorly as we have on the road.
Then it should come as great comfort to you that we are finished with our road games for the season.
Wow Burke sucks tonight. Throwing away the any consideration for POY.
Completely false. I never said that, and even if I had, at that point, he WAS throwing it away.
You're a real trip, man.
Holy crap! I can't believe we came back and won that game.
Played a great game tonight at both end.
Well, at one end at least. I'm sorry, but a number of times his man just easily drove by him, with almost no resistance.
I mean, I love Stauskas, but I think it would be really dishonest to say that he played well on the defensive side of the floor.
I'm still underaged...
I'm still drunk...
Games left to watch Trey Burke in a Michigan uniform: min 3, max 11.
Most likely amount? 4. Womp, womp
I'm having a lugene chocolate milk stout (Odell brewing co, somewhere in Colorado). The brewery named it after my uncle cause he owns the farm they get ingredients from.
Just tried it for the first time a couple minutes ago actually, my bro brought some
Yea Im enjoying it (and apparently he uses the old hops to feed the cows according to the bottle). Lucky for me I've been on a dark beer kick lately. Enjoy
I'm glad that I didn't have the basketball open thread on my computer during the game. What a wild game. No drinking for me tonight, though.
I really wish I didn't have to be so negative and critical during the game, even when we're losing to inferior opponents. I need to find another way to relieve the tension and anxiety that I feel while watching them play, and I sincerely apologize to people here for getting a little out of hand at times. Very excited for this Sunday.
Gotta love sports, one moment you wanna drown Stauskas in a pool of his own forehead blood, the next, you're writing him love letters. GO BLUE, BEAT IU.
I'd say venting frustrations on a message board with people across the world is a much better way to ease your tensions than mannny other ways I could think of. Who gives a sh*t if some don't like the honest opinions, of which they are, and can't handle a guy whose passion for the school's athletics aren't always (ever!!) butterflies and rainbows.
True, but I hope I can express my frustrations in ways that don't demean the players and coaches of the team. I just can't stand to see Michigan lose. I guess that's the consequence of being related to Bob Ufer.

Yeah, and death by electrocution is better than death by hanging, drawing and quartering. That it's not the worst thing in the world doesn't make it a good thing,
Here's a simple rule to follow: if you're going to post something imflammatory, reflect for a second before you hit the "Save" button: "Do I really want to put this message out there?" If you can't answer affirmatively, don't send it.
It happens to the best of us - especially when we relate the basketball season with football (where a couple of bad losses hurts you to a much greater extent). We just need to realize that except for the truly great teams (and there are possibly 2 or 3 at most per year), every school is going to have atleast a couple of clunkers per year. The basketball season is long and especially hard when you are in a brutal league with a young team. You just hope to win your games at home and try to win about half the games on the road - and then you sit back and hope the chips fall your way during march madness!
One GAME to rule them all, One GAME to find them,
One GAME to bring them all and in the banners bind them
BEAT THE HOOSIERS!
I'll settle for a pos bang, but I think I really need some blood pressure medication.
Plenty of Pepto Bismol...
Shut off the TV when we went down 12. Turned it back on when we were down 5. Glad I came back!
A win is a win. One game to win for a banner and a championship. Nice and simple.
The road losing streak is over!
I feel like IU will be a cakewalk compared to that hell. It won't be, obviously, but it's nice to go back to Crisler with a B1G title up for grabs.
In celebration of still being in control of our destiny going into the final regular season game, there is a goodly supply of Hacker-Pschorr and Strongbow Cider in the surviving snow near the patio. Enjoy, or at least, have some before I consume it.
Only one chore left before postseason play - beat the Hooisers.
+1 for the Hacker Pschorr
Eagle Rare bourbon for this one.
And didn't get ejected!
Beer minus the fermented grain for me...it's a long bike ride to work in the morning
And? Nothing wrong with being a little hungover on a bike.
We have to find a way to blow people out...I can't keep going through this. I'm too fat.
No more road games!
Fat Tire - so glad it came to Michigan.
Bud Light, what a comeback!
I'm really running out, less than a case left
Grand Cru Burgundy
Not sure you bust that out for Purdue?
As of 3/6, 10PM EST
1. Results of head-to-head competition during the regular season.
A. When comparing records against a single team or a group of teams, the higher winning percentage shall prevail, even if the number of games played against the team or group are unequal (i.e., 2-0 is better than 3-1); in the case of tied percentages vs. the team or group of 1.000 or .000 the following shall apply: 2-0 is better than 1-0; 0-1 is better than 0-2.
B. After the top team among the tied teams is determined, the second team is ranked by its record among the original tied teams, not the head-to-head record vs. the remaining team(s).
2. If the remaining teams are still tied, then each tied team's record shall be compared to the team occupying the highest position in the final regular-season standings, continuing down through the standings until one team gains an advantage.
A. When arriving at another pair of tied teams while comparing records, use each team's record against the collective tied teams as a group (prior to their own tie-breaking procedures), rather than the performance against the individual tied teams.
B. When comparing records against a single team or a group of teams, the higher winning percentage shall prevail, even if the number of games played against the team or group are unequal (i.e., 2-0 is better than 3-1); in the case of tied percentages vs. the team or group of 1.000 or .000 the following shall apply: 2-0 is better than 1-0; 0-1 is better than 0-2.
3. Won-loss percentage of all Division I opponents.
4. Coin toss conducted by the Commissioner or designee.
|#14 Ohio State||--||ILL||1-1||1-1||--||1-1||1-1||1-0||0-1||1-0|
|#10 Michigan State||WIS||NW||0-2||1-1||1-1||--||1-0||1-1||1-0||1-0|
we'll be seeded no worse than 3rd in the BTT.
There is a scenario that would result in us having the 4 seed even with a win over IU.
Wisconsin over MSU
Wisconsin over PSU
Ohio State over Illinois
MSU/NW winner would not matter.
And Indiana would lose its 2-0 sweep of MSU in the determination.
Both IU & Mich would be 2-3 in the four way tie.
We'd edge out IU on the tie-breaker #2 as IU has losses to both Minny & Illinois.
Ok, I was going off this table, which has been floating around sbnation.
I don't like to think about MSU
The #2 tie-breaker in your scenario between IU & Mich would fall to our records vs MSU, and IU would get us there.
Dr Pepper 10 + Bacardi Gold. Go Blue!
Redd's Apple Ale
finally picked up a pack this morning and it's not bad.
I'd still rather have just a beer though. But it did pretty good
I'm gonna sleep like a baby after that draining game and this fine brew.
We at least won. Worthy of the leftover high life in the fridge.
