tipping off shortly
Michigan Staee Indiana Open Thread
We are all Hoosiers tonight.
we have no shot at the B1G title anymore, right? (sorry, don't follow bouncyhoops that closely)
We have a shot at splitting it with MSU if they lose out and we win out
LOL @ missed dunk by what's his name
I call him - "obladipo obladapo life goes oooonnnbraaahhh"
It is a tad wordy... but fun
Something I just thought about. What if Indiana is looking ahead to its Rivalry game this Saturday? I know it would be absolutely rediculous to overlook a potential number 1 seed for a rival but you stranger things have happened.
Food for thought.
And beat the spartans whoever you are.
IU even if we don't win the share of the title still want State to lose.
Man, that Hulls kid. I can't decide if I like hiim or hate him. I for sure hate him when we're playing IU, especially when he's shooting threes. He's super quick too.
he just tosses ball up and it would go in when they're playing us...hope he does that too.
Damn I wish we had a good a home court advantage as IU does, the combination of the crowd and the ridiculous home cooking makes it almost impossible to win there. Sparty can't buy a foul on the offensive end.
record, but 15-1 isn't too shabby.
to Minnesota of all teams.
with or without Trevor Mbakwe?
One of the oddest losses of the season.
True, we both only have 1 loss at home, just seems like we never had a huge advantage at home with the officials except some favorable calls in the OSU game, and the lack of a loud crowd without the students killed us in the Purdue game.
Assembly Hall is the toughest place in the Big Ten to win at on the road. But Michigan home court advantage is getting up there with the maize rage and the new upgrades to the facility.
The Refs lilke Coach B. We are starting to get some of those Duke-like calls at home, such as Charges on 50/50 calls.
Really? They didn't show us that much love against Purdue.
We can still have a three way tie, right? IU beats MSU, Ohio beats them as well, we win out. Can I haz hope?
for IU, so that is 11 FT's to zero for MSU gotta love the home court advantage so far in this game.
Hate sparty or not......the blatant home cooking IU receives in this conference is absolutely sickening.
No team in the conference gets the type of home cooking that IU does.
IU scores to much to be a Big Ten team. 30 points with 5 minutes to go in the half. That is ridiculous.
lol. Hopefully Appling keeps his head in his ass for another couple years.
Great first half for Our Wolv - ER - Hoosiers. Michigan State is a pretty good second half team, so Indiana's going to have to turn up the heat and keep up the intensity.
first half by IU, I mean the 20 free throws sure didn't hurt. 20 more minutes till we have a lot better chance at winning the share we all want so badly.
Jay Bilas really reminds me of RichRod....are they related?
This game is going well so far. WHY DID WE HAVE TO LOSE TO PURDUE!
It was part of our devious plan to get Sparty overconfident so they'd lose out.
but I just turned on Tim Allen's new show on ABC, and his wife is an Ohio State grad and Tim has on the University of Michigan hoodie. From Tool Time I know he is a huge state of Michigan sports team fan already. Just thought it was cool he brought the best rivalry to his new show also. Go blue, oh and when she made a statement about graduating from Ohio he made a funny joke on how that didn't really count.
Yeah, in his new show, he's actually a Michigan grad and constantly gives his wife a good ribbing for going to an inferior school.
He also tells his daughters that if they don't get into Michigan, it's OK b/c they can always go to tOSU.
Someone want to tell Indiana the second half has started?
is a one man show. they won't go far in the the tournament. Green is pretty damn good. but shut him down and they are mediocre.
The problem is actually shutting him down. If you shut down Thomas Robinson Kansas is no good either, the same can be said for a lot of teams. It's not really as simple as you say it is. Michigan State is a pretty good team unfortunately.
Payne and Nix are pretty big beasts when they wanna get going. I think MSU is actually catching fire at the right time and will or should make a deep run in the Big Dance.
they are built for the B1G
A running team smokes them.
C'mon IU, finish this off. Plz k thanks
Talk about carrying your team, good god man.... Green is out of his mind
He's also a whiny player who constantly complains to the refs, then hammers Indiana's players and nothing is called. Ridiculous. Always saying "bullshit" and waving his hands at the ref. Technical?
Those player of the year awards just may happen for Green. SpartyFreude aside, I really don't think that they are a top flight team so much as an average team with an excellent player. Guess we have a little while left to watch them and see.
game, set, match son.
In other news, Minnesota has the lead over UW. I don't know if that will last, but if it does, we clinch the #3 BTT seed with a UW loss.
And the hope for a share of the Big Ten regular season title lives on
Man, if we can take care of business against Illinois on Thursday, Sunday is going to be nuts. We play PSU at 1, and then if we win the B1G title will be on the line as MSU plays OSU at 4.
Might be the first time in the history of my life that I will cheer for ohio...
