"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Damn, why couldnt we play one of these teams tonight?
Cause we're scheduled to win tomorrow instead of tonight. Sorry you're going to have to wait 24 hours for our victory.
All good things come to he who waits my friend........
Are you channeling Section 1 by any chance?
This really is a horrible game. I honestly don't see how either of these teams are even in the discussion for an at-large bid, but whatever. Win tomorrow and these games look very beatable.
I didn't think a game called by Gus Johnson could be brutally boring. But they've accomplished it.
Hey, they are both on pace to score 50 now! Turning into a shootout!
MSU is going to steal this game. Man, Minny is falling apart without Holden.
Yeah - stupid spelling auto-correct.
Minnesota looks terrible without Nolen. We should beat them, raised court or not.
This just sets up for a winner-gets-in game at the end of the year if all goes well for UM.
MSU wins: Low score - lolScore
Sparty probably won't need to beat us to get in. Even if they lose at home to Purdue, they'll surely beat Iowa and that will give them nine conference wins.
If State makes the tournament with 17 wins my head will implode.
We're already hearing every TV crew make apologies for them because "they played a tough schedule." Tonight's win will put them in the top 40 RPI, and even if they lose to us and Purdue, they won't drop enough to fall out of consideration. I think the only way they won't get in with a 9-9 conference mark is if they lose to Iowa at home, or in the BTT, which I can't see happening, even if they did lose to them earlier.
Michigan will still win one way or the other on March 6th regardless of the outcome of the game. Win lose or draw, we will all go to sleep the night of the 5th, and when we wake up in the morning, Michigan will still be the best school in the Big Ten, and MSU will still be the armpit of Lansing, MI.
Well minnesota is definitely vulnerable now, and we just need to beat the piss out of sparty march 5th. But for now, BEAT THE BADGERS!
FUCK I HATE STATE SO MUCH!! I fell asleep when it was 47-40 Minn. And I wake up and State won. WTF
That was a fascinating game to watch, in a car crash sort of way. Watching both teams trade mental breakdowns and "deer in the headlights" looks was very entertaining.
Let's hope MSU doesn't figure out that Payne should be playing a lot more minutes before they play us.
Minnesota is going to be devestated and is almost certainly due for a hangover after that apocalypse. Purdue should roll MSU. Happy days.
By the way, seriously, how did Minnesota lose that game? Pathetic.
