stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
Is Hardaway like 1-29 against state the last two games? This is embarrassing.
All in for some manball.
keep him on the damn bench. he just stands there on watches sparty get rebounds. at least bielfeld will fight a bit.
..we're gonna need to play the best half of basketball we've played all season to win this one. And what are the odds we can do that after playing the worst half we've played all season?
Bitched about refs for any of our road games yet. I've always figured it was part of the game on the road. This however is absolute horseshit. This is the worst officiating job I have seen. It's usually a call here or there. This is blatant bad calls and all one way
It ain't the refs!

You Get Nothing MSU. You Lose, Good Day Sir!
This is an ads kicking. Refs had nothing to do with it. We should play tougher.
This game is a joke. That last series where they got 100 offensive rebounds looked like me playing against my 9 year old son.
We need a halftime aneurysm of leadership.
Michigan Resurgent? Michigan Resurgent!
The beatings will continue until the uniforms improve!
Bad line up. Horrible effort. Bad fundamentals. Looks like we were beaten. Need to show some Heath second half. Can do it but it looks so so bad.
This is a perfect example to show you talent only brings you that far. You need hard work, heart, tenancity, resilience to be successful in all things you do in life.
Really? You know how hard those guys are working? Heart and tenacity? Jesus you guys see 3 hours of these guys a week and you know their character. They aren't playing well we've all seen what it's like when they do.
This thread is as bad as the commentary. I'm out
Well, this could be going better.
I'm oddly comforted by Hoke's presence, however.
It is evident he does not approve.

Ill just read this forum for a bit and hope it turns
reading this thread is a great way to raise your spirits.
trying to defend Michigan's defense will sit down for awhile. That's not championship caliber D.
That's not NIT level D
effort I have seen all season... It's their choice to come back and play like a damn team or they can let us fans down who have been there for them through all of their ups and downs.
2013 will be the year.
That's not that impressive considering the Ellerbe/Amaker years.
Then again, looks like it will be 20-11 pretty soon.

Man, Spartan nation is going to suck tomorrow. Hope you guys in Michigan are ready.
Ehhh I deal. They still have needle dicks
If you don't like Michigan you are a peasant
MSU 18 (7 offensive)
Michigan 12 (3 offensive)
There's your game right there.
There's not one player on this team that needs to be thinking about the NBA. Weak is about all I can say.
is hard to watch. Just awful.
If I say a duck can pull a truck, shut up and hook the sucka up!
This team needs one of the coaches lay into them at half. 25 games into the season, no excuses for the freshman anymore.
I don't know how anyone can deny that. How in the world can you get into this arena tonight and not be up to the task. Most of our players are not. Soft is the key word for this team.
Soft physically (see: the last minute of that half), soft mentally (see: all of our road losses). They just get outworked and outhustled.
Inspiring haters to hate since 1817.
You have no post threat and you rely solely on jump shooting, you'll never have consistency because its easier to defend and shooters are streaky. Defensively we haven't been good in a few weeks.
Denard Robinson......They're not going to catch him!
Nix can only go to his right, but Michigan can't rebound anything.
his guy probably has 3 or 4 offensive rebounds too.
Fuck it. Belien needs to do the war rebounding drill that Izzo does. Our defense and rebounding is beyond atrocious and if we don't watch it this game could get pretty ugly.
"They will meet a dastardly fate here for that! There isn't a Michigan Man who wouldn't like go out and scalp those Buckeyes right now."
Hardaway is non existent.
Sad news about Nerlens Noel...there goes the draft in June.
These guys need someone to yell in their damn ears at halftime. Seems to me that no one on the coaching staff can do that. Pathetic first half and I hope to God they come out a totally different team in the second half.
"I get to go to lots of overseas places, like Canada." -Britney Spears
Helps turn bad defense into good defense, great. But yelling is highly overrated and most good coaches don't have to do much of it.
Um tell that to the football coaches.
Freshmens are really showing their inexperince here they are tired and playing all these road games is making them exhausted...if they continue like this we are doomed say goodbye to the tournament
SICK of hearing that. I wasnt super talented at my sport but ALWAYS played my behind off and always brought defense to my game. Even when offense lacked. It doesnt matter what age you are - people either have that drive to play defense or not. I coached many teams since and some kids do it and have that internal drive and some dont. Whether 6 years old, 11 or 18 yrs old.
Well, State is shooting out of their mind also. They haven't made a ton of open shots, most of them are contested, they're just going in. If we get any closer to them, the refs blow the whistle.
Saying most shots were contested is being pretty generous.
It's ok guys. After the loss to Wisconsin they all sat around and mentioned one thing they could do better. So, they're all set now. You can tell that lit a fire under them.
First 4 minutes are crucial. If we aren't within single-digits at that point we might lose by 20.
Can we just have him go to the locker room and unleash a 12 minute tirade that only Novak can deliver?
Lets hope he did.

If I have learned one thing about this team, they are resilient. Just chill and it will all get better, yo
Me fail English? That's unpossible!
Right, they'll make it a little closer and still lose. Being resilient hasn't actually lead to a win yet. Just false hope.
At least we are a team that can come back. Would you rather we lose by 20 to OSU and Indiana?
Exactly. That just makes it even fucking worse that they allow this bullshit to happen in the first half.
Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.

We let a guy like Matt Costello get 4 points.
