Is the B1G championship on ESPN or is it on BTN?
Mich vs. PSU Open Thread
ESPN or CBS.
I'm not declaring a win until there is no time left.
You thought we blew a 19 point lead.
69-63 after THJ 1-2 from FT line and PSU 3 pointer. KenPom predicted a 6 point UM victory. Has KenPom been controlling the last 10 minutes of this game from his evil lair?
Novak is having some fun after the game...
up 69-63 w 7.8 go baring an epic collapse but on that note, what an epic choke we already pretty much did. We're playing for potentially the conference title and we let penn state almost completely erase a 19 point 2nd half lead. Ugly ugly ugly. I could see us going to the Elite 8 and I could see us being a first round upset in the tournament.
Every other team in the Tournament without a #1 by their name?
no way psu should have been in this at the end
I have no problem with the "Live by the 3, Die by the 3" style we play with..but outside of Burke, we really do not even try to get layups.
Even when non-Burke players do drive, they look more to make a KICK-OUT PASS FOR A 3 PTR, ratrher than look for a lay-up or make an interior pass for an assist
This is our best conference record since 1993-94 (also 13-5), when we had some guys named Jalen Rose and Juwan Howard playing for us. Does anyone think this team has comparable talent? No? Then maybe we shouldn't trash them at every turn.
We're now one OSU win away from a conference title, and some here refuse to enjoy it. That's just . . . absurd.
I was going to argue otherwise, but your massive Mgopoints total is destroying my courage.
The Fab 5 laid some B1G turds. Every team does. We laid a 2-half turd and still won the game, so I'm ecstatic. 13 B1G wins doesn't happen by accident.
If OSU wins this afternoon, the B10 Championship trophy is going to say "2011-2012 Big Ten Champs....but they looked sloppy the last game against Penn State on the road".
Oh wait, it's not going to say that? Nevermind.....
Show me someone that expected us to be this good when the season started and I will show you a liar. Let's enjoy and appreciate what this team had done so far.
KenPom for the win.
71-65 finish. Flaccid win is better than a loss.
He said flaccid!
*PHEW!* They just can't make it easy, can they?
Got the W, now on to tournament time. Hopefully, the team will be more focused.
Let's go Buckeyes. This expires around 6-7 pm tonight
1st half = sexy. 2nd half = not sexy. Let's take the road "W", go home, and celebrate 13 B1G wins for an evening. Then it's back to work.
Go Bu.. (vomit)
Go Bu... (vomit)
Go Bucks! (vomit)
im new to this blog so far i love it but how are the posts scored and what is the reason for it
We don't talk about Mgopoints around here.
Well... shit! I just grew 10 gray hairs!
Regardless of what happens between OSU-MSU, be happy for how well we've done this year. 13-5 in conference, a top 25 team all year. Great strides made by our boys this year led by 2 iconic seniors.
Some coaches to go on your list of amazing, believing and Bacari are both studs
iphone double post, sorry folks.
I was worried.
Go blue by proxy!
To the game today to say the least. I'm curious on the decision to not run any offense under the 5 minute mark. Like Dan Dakich said, I get running some clock, but why can an offense not be ran while also accomplishing that. Oh well, only Beilein knows and we won so it's a moot point.
Referees at this point just look at Smotz and say to themselves "That guy has FOUL written on his forehead". I don't understand the majority of the blocking fousl they call on him. He is usually in a decent position and moving his feet but if a guard happens to run into him or brush by him, immediate FOUL. It frustrates him and it frustrates me. Yes he makes some poor decision out there at times that are legitimate fouls, but at least 2 calls today were complete crap, as if they're focusing on him.
Go Ohio. Wow, what an evening it can be if Sparty loses (not calling it an Ohio "win"). Anyone have any progress on a banner more basketball/hockey oriented, especially with the chance for a Big Ten Title and heading into the BTT/Big Dance?!
to say this had to be one rare feat today, back to back 3 pointers with the fouls making back to back 4 point plays. I mean wow I have never seen it in my life.
I was thinking the same. They on tv didn't seem to thrilled to see that but I'm not sure that has happened too many times before. 8 points in two possessions, pretty rare!
Well, it got a little hairy for awhile there but it's a W. 13-5 in league play, wow! (And we went 5-4 on the road in the Big Ten, who'd have guessed?)
