"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."
Michigan Basketball vs. MSU Open Thread
Are there any recruits attending? I'd imagine Michigan would have some in-state kids stopping by. Let's hope the defense picks up and we come out fast for once.
but I'm not sure. Maybe someone else can confirm or deny.
Confirmed. Plus, our all-everything recruiter Shane Morris will also be in attendance. Can't hurt
I think we will see more visitors next week when we play Indiana. It seems like the coaches have picked that week to have lots of kids on campus.
247sports confirmed that Jalen Embry and Tim Cason II will be on campus next week.
but okay... GO BLUE!
And might need a second half thread as well.
Pardon my french, but I can't stand the smug-ass, woe-is-us bullshit on the board this morning...so here are my assorted thoughts about 40 minutes prior to tip-off:
PSU was just a bad dream
We're undefeated at home
MSU is going to look dumb when they all start smacking the floor like a horde of the Heartless in Kingdom Hearts.
Blues Brothers Dance
Maybe Hoke will sit next to Beilein again
I still love this team
The maple leaf will fly at some point today
Don't lose your dinosaur
Prestige Worldwide, that's what you gotta do
No, I'm not an ostritch
unlike when we played Staee in EL, Jordan Morgan is healthy. Could be a difference-maker.
Any online suggestions for a live feed, for an idiot who accidentally booked a flight which leaves in 10min, and doesn't land until after the game? Thank god for go go in-flight....
You probably won't be able to strream it because gogo sucks, but try this
I guess it helps when the gogo, is actually working....f-ing Delta.
Maybe you saw this, posted about 10 minutes after you posted:
If the powers that be want to set up a liveblog for the game, I can help run it.
Are you stocked up on booze or do you need to run to the store? You have 33 minutes.
Saturday stash turns into Sunday afternoon drinking.
Didn't even do a preview for the game, I wasn't holding my breath for a live blog.
Pride is on the line. B1G championship probably outta reach, but splitting with State will help heal some wounds and restore some confidence.
HINT TO BIGS: Don't react to Nix's first shoulder twitch post move. Or the second, third, or fourth twitch. He only makes an offensive move after 4 shoulder twitches.
My parting shot: Badgers lost to Purdue.
Long time reader. Just made an acct because I'm in Istanbul and am trying to find a place to watch the game. Any help is appreciated.
I was banking on the espn app but of course it's a CBS game and first row doesn't work either.
Pussyfiend? Really? That's what popped into your head just now?
How awesomely horrible.
I thought the CBS Sports App would be the answer, but I'm not seeing streams on there today.
This person really likes cats.
He should fit right in.
Got my Chicks Dig Scars MGoShirt on, got some Great Lakes Burning River (cuz they don't make 'Burning Couch in East Lansing'), blasting Mozart's Requiem in D minor on Sparty's behalf... Yeah I'm ready for game time.
Where's the front page preview? I hope its absence isn't because Brian and the powers that be have thrown in the towel. Do I have to post the John Belushi/Animal House Pearl Harbor clip?
Something that many are missing IMO - We do not want to play on Thursday of the BTT. Gotta stay in top 4. The season revival starts today.
is small. Didn't even fill the bleachers, there's a lot of older guys here that aren't students but bought the tickets. MSU parents then take up another chunk. Nothing in 130. And we're broken up a little bit, so I wouldn't expect anything like the OSU atmosphere, although I'm hoping for the best
Thanks for the insight Drake. Do you think you'll get the #1 jersey your sophomore or junior year?
Already mine bro
I live in Atlanta and have April 5-8 off!!
Coincidence? I think not!!
Kinda off topic, but did Denard win the cover vote for NCAA Football 14?
Voting ends March 8th, but I think Denard's up by 10k+ votes.
Mike Kitts, Lamont Simpson, and TV Teddy Valentine on the whistles today. Buckle up
Yes. Follow up question: Will I be getting drunk if Michigan beats Sparty?
Stuck driving home for the next 5 hours and out of range. Iheartradio app has WTKA only playing ads. Any suggestions ok how to listen?
The MSU broadcasters suck, but you can download the Spartan Sports Network app and listen from there
Replied to the wrong post... Please ignore or remove.
Team Rankings posted its projected box scores and, for the board's information, they have estimated the following shooting percentages despite predicting a Michigan win:
Field Goal %
2 Point Shooting %
3 Point Shooting %
Free Throw %
What they do is run simulated games and seasons and take an average of the results. Our home average effective FG% is 51.04%, better than MSU's away effective FG% by about 2%. Hopefully, it's closer to something like this.
Have no idea why, but ref Teddy Valentine was literally crying down on court before game here in Ann Arbor. Strange sight.

That is very, very odd..?! Interesting.
Tom Izzo told him he didn't feel the same way and couldn't they just be friends?
