Have at it kids. Going for the outright championship tonight versus an improving and defensive minded Illinois squad. Hopefully our traditional -10 to -19 first half deficit issue is abolished.
MBB v Illinois Open Thread
GO BLUE! I want my children to witness something I have not seen since, I was younger than they are now.
immediately reminded me of the Bob Dylan song, "My Back Pages".
For I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now...
Enough reminiscing about music, though, as I know you're actually referring to an unshared Big Ten Basketball Championship. You're probably too young to know that song anyway unless you're a Dylan fan.
...Caris LeVert to show up big time and show the IL coaches what they missed (as though they don't already know).
For the love of god! Stuck in class!!
which is free on college networks, so if you're in class you should be fine.
espn3 doesnt work in the virgin islands apparently.
DO IT BABY!!! I was 9 the last time it happened, and do not remember it.
Cherish the cabin!
Finish strong boys... March means that there's no room to take any game for granted. Must come out with a sense of urgency each and every game. Other than that, GO BLUE and WIN THE GAME
36 feels old now
It's been a long time. Without revealing too much, my elder cousin was on he squad the last time we won an outright title. Let's get it done tonight! Go Blue!
First let’s win this game and get the Big Ten Title outright. After that though is it bad that I don’t really care about the Big Ten Tournament. Best case is we win the Tournament and get a two seed. Worst case we lose early and get a three. I just don’t think there is a relevant difference between a 2 or a 3. With that being the case the Big Ten Tournament really just comes down to not getting hurt.
The Tournament does matter for teams on the bubble. For us however it really does not matter.
Checking in from Ulsan, South Korea at 9am Wed morning. Dog on lap, coffee in hand, work email minimized on my home computer.
Share the best streams if you got 'em.
Let's do this.
Mike Tirico. Let's win with AA resident on hand!
Dakich just talked more about UM's injuries than Beilein did all year.... Take notes Tommy Tantrum.
Best stream I've seen so far:
This one isn't working for me.
Playing good defenses doesn't scare me. I learned that during the NCAA Tournament last year. Sometimes a crazy good offense and out-offense us, but a good defense can't really stop us.
Love the duct tape speach from BA
Lol student section stretching.
Assertive GR3 is here. Good sign.
It looks like the Illinois blue-hairs also have trouble making it on time for a 7:00 tip off. At least they have a time zone excuse.
Did they get new lights in Champaign? their gym looks unusually bright
In big games, all I can think is "Is it over yet?"
continues to impress
Starting aggressive on both sides.
Defensive rebounding is going to be key.
like the strong start for a change!
an aggressive GR3
Great vision Walton
more into the game. Good to see.
Hand up when you close out nik! My HS coach would have had an Izzo style meltdown if we did that.
come on man
Nice start but Morgan HAS to dunk that shit!
Offense looking good besides that Morgan miss
I'm unsure of this "jump out to a quick lead" look we have today. Kind-of looks like a B1G Champ.
Wonderful. TV Teddy in the house
I love the start. J-mo has got to make the gimmes. Defense is creating points
Morgan would be dominant if he just had some better hops.
strong J Mo
Lol I love Morgan but sometimes you just have to shake your head at how passively he attacks the hoop.
Sick drive by Caris
Looks good early
Stauskas feelin' it early
