seriously, that's just ridiculous. 1:42 to go in the GAME and psu leads 35-30. In the SECOND half!
psu currently shooting 34% and wisco at 29%. ouch.
I had the same reaction. I was like "Damn, they started this game rather late." and then I saw it was the 2nd half.
I flipped over to the BYU game, saw Fredette get 50, then flipped on PSU-Wisc and it is 35-33 with less than 1 min to go. Wiscy is the epitome of ugly tourney Bball.
So if PSU wins and then beats MSU, they get a bid? BT gets 7 bids or someone gets left in the cold?
Illinois might have to start sweating a bit. They've lost 10 of their last 16.
I'm just hopoing we're not the ones that get screwed. It's a good thing we WON today, otherwise this evening's results would have killed us.
wondering the same thing my friend
I don't think there is anyway we don't make the tourney at this point. No need to worry.
If somebody does, it would be MSU. Didn't PSU sweep MSU this season? (Correct me if I'm wrong) and we swept both PSU and MSU.
Edit: Derp, forgot about the Illini.
PSU and MSU split, with PSU winning a close game at home and MSU winning a blowout in East Lansing.
Cool, thank you. The more I looked at PSU sweeping MSU the more it didn't look correct.
I think they split
I'm gonna talk like these announcers in this post.
HEY YOU GUYS WHATS UP THIS IS A PRETTY CRAZY GAME HUH THERES LIKE NO SCORING WHATS UP WITH THAT.
Teams like Purdue and Wisconsin don't have nearly the motivation for these games as their respective opponents. These type games should almost be expected.
We were so close to playing Northwestern tomorrow, but instead we have to play the #1 team in the country. Meanwhile, Sparty gets to play PSU.
Good. I would rather play the Buckeyes anyway.
PSU better fucking beat MSU tomorrow. I will be beyond pissed if Sparty plays in the championship game.
plays like they did today, PSU won't be beating them. I'd wager OSU wouldn't either...they looked like a dangerous team today...
That's what scares me. I'm already in complete terror of what may happen should both Michigan teams win tomorrow, but MSU wins Sunday.
If we beat the #1 team nationally, we'll be safe no matter what. I'm more concerned about us losing tomorrow. If PSU also wins, we could be in trouble. I think it's slightly preferable for MSU to win.
Are you out of your nervous nelly freaking mind. M is in. End of story, save your chicken little shit for something even remotely reasonable
Man ... that was .... thank you
I more meant the pain of Monday when your retarded Sparty friend/co-worker/whatever has to remind you every minute that the regular season means nothing anymore. But, yes, the tournament is important, too.
Well yeah, there's that too. I don't think they'll have the legs to win four games in four days, though.
I do not have to want to deal with my life if we lose to MSU in the championship game.
I'd be okay with it
Climb off the ledge. We're fine.
PSU better not get the nod over us after that crapfest. We better beat OSU just in case.
MSU gets Penn State in the semis...really? FML
Just curious, but was that the worst men's basketball game of all time?
That's funny. I hope we get to play one of those clowns in the final. Sweet revenge against Wisky sounds nice.
So is there really no chance we don't get in? Like really?
At least one of PSU/MSU has to lose tomorrow along with us. And we swept them both.
But still...I thought it was a done deal and now I'm not positive.
Beat the Buckeyes.
Michigan is in for sure, don't sweat it. We could put up a RR type effort against the Buckeyes and still be a shoo in.
We were one point from being the clear favorites. Damn.
Can't imagine we're not in. Sparty may have jumped us with a second nice win, but considering we swept both teams, there is little chance that we get kicked out in favor of Penn State or MSU.

As of 5:30 ET, here's the latest projection from our Bracketologist (Joe Lunardi). And Michigan fans, in case you're panicking right now, the Wolverines do not appear on this page because Joe Lunardi feels they are safely in the field.
If Lunardi's ordering is correct, soon there will be a lack of teams that can catch us no matter what. (We're already near that, if not already there.)
Where can you find current RPI/SOS data?
I wanted to look at Mich/Illinois/MSU/PSU resumes side by side.
Kemba/Jimmer 85-69 Wisky/PSU
What an ugly showing.
That really is an incredible stat.
If this game had to be personified... I think we have a candidate.
at this point is if we lost to the Illini, then PSU went on to beat MSU. That MIGHT have had PSU and MSU take the last two spots (OSU, WISKY, PURDUE, ILLINI, MSU, PSU). However, we beat Illinois, so if PSU does somehow manage to beat the Spartans tomorrow, the Big Ten Field would look like OSU, WISKI, PURDUE, MICH, MSU, PSU/ILLINI). The Illini will drop before we do if PSU wins at MSU tomorrow. Our record is better and we've now split the season.
I think it'll be hard to leave Illinois out with wins over NC and Gonzaga. Penn st. just messed things up by winning tonight.
We were no shoe in two years ago despite beating Duke and UCLA.
Why couldn't Wisconsin have played like THAT at Crisler?
