I sort of wondered this year if the rep of the Big Ten was going solely off last year's league. Image might take a hit after this tournament unless we or Wisconsin make a run to the Final Four
Michigan Vs. Wofford Open Thread
Now we're rolling
That three is welcomed
This is one ugly game. Survive and advance I guess.
Wrong - play like shit and go home early
I always thought that the team with more points did get to advance. Didn't know we got DQ'd for looking crappy.
Welp, always next year!
15 point lead. 7-0 run. maybe finally getting it together???
Up 15. A little breathing room. Just a little.
Holy shit. Game is over now . Levert finally hit a shot
Even when we score it's almost like fool's gold. Robinson's fumble gets recovered and put in by Morgan, Morgan's missed hook gets tipped, LeVert forces one and it goes....
I think we will win this pulling away but I swear everyone is playing like they have ten thumbs when rebounding and dribbling.
Lol, was just thinking the same thing. Stone hands!
I swear I no more than said that and jinxed Caris with fumbleitis!!!!
This hasn't been pretty...but it ain't about pretty this time of the year.
Morgan with another missed layup. In fucking believable.
And that's about the 8th rebound we had and let us bounce off us out of bounds
Morgan has to give that ball up
Levert has been full of derp this game.
Does the basketball have grease on it?
There's been so many infuriating things about this game. 2 dropped rebounds out of bounds, lazy turnovers, at least 5 missed layups, and very bad shot selection at points. Yet, still up 15... luckily it's against Wofford.
Some of these plays are almost comical. Missed layups and uncontested balls going out of bounds off of us... Ugh
Don't know how to rebound in March. Sickening
and move on to Saturday.
sloppy game....can't wait until this one's over
in the Tony the Tiger commercial?
Does Coach Barnes-Arico have her on the radar?
It's not like Wofford is knocking 'em down either. 15 seed, blah, blah, but our D isn't a turnpike to the rim today like it has been in other games.
Wofford's interior D is so much better than ours. I kind of chuckle when I see them shut down LeVert's drives but we can't stop any of theirs
Defense has actually been okay today, haven't allowed alot of drives to the hoop.Wofford have had to settle for jump shots for the most part, and clearly they don't do that well to put it mildly.
They won't get out of the next round.
Hate Izzo all you want but at least he knows what defense is.
So true, 78 points to Delaware was a great defensive effort.
MSU gave up 78 to Delaware and Wofford currently has 40.
Thank god Wofford can't shoot.
I said, at least we only need 9 points to pull this out. Wofford still Rockin the point a minute offense
The most annoying thing is that we've had to play our guys normal minutes when we should have easily been able to rest them against a team this bad. This should have been a 30-point win with all the walk-ons getting in.
Vegas, Kenpom, etc all thought the same...
Oh wait! It's the NCAA tournament!
If you'd told KenPom that Wofford would shoot 1 for 19 (or whatever) from downtown, and score 40 points, I think he'd have expected us to win by a lot more.
But it's a win. Just hope we bring our A game Saturday.
It's still a win, but this should have been one of those games where starters could have got valuable rest for later games.
NIK-ster for 3!!!
To make the score look good
Game over. There's no style points in March.
A 'W' is a 'W'
Mcgary dances on the sidelines and participates in practice but can't play at all?
They shouldn't have any of that junk going on
God forbid they have a bit of fun out there.
McGary was fired up.
Advive and Survance!
Would've been a lot more interesting otherwise
1 for 19 on the three.
ONE for NINETEEN.
Not pretty, but we've got another game.
This game makes me nervous.
We probably shouldn't do a posbang for this game, should we? Like a "we didn't get upset" posbang?
They don't look great, but I don't think they really care unless they're within single digits. Not a good way to play in my book, but if they can play like ass and still win by 17, it's hard to bitch.
The problem is, they can't after this. We're out of 15 seeds to face.

UConn vs St. Joes in OT
If Wofford had any kind of pathetic offense at all we would have been run off the court.
I am litterally, no joke, am suffering from sleep desperation and hallucinating. I think the boys out there are going through the same thing.
This was the worst win I've ever seen.
If anyone complains about the bracket seeding just think back to this game. I'm sure if we played any other team, NIT included...we would of lost.
Thank god we weren't a 1 seed, we were so lucky drawing wofford.
Also is this really happening? Sleep deprivation is fucking crazy
You know "we didn't play great" could have said what you said without silly hyperbole.
Your assumption that I'm exaggerating and not being literal, is incorrect
I "would of" believed you weren't exaggerating, but considering what I have been watching all day, we came out ahead of where many teams did. Look at what Louisville just endured. Seriously. Less crazy hyperbole, more sense.
Your assumption that you need to rephrase exaggerating is incorrect. We know what it means. It's okay.
Well we've seen plenty of teams shoot the lights out against us so we were due for one like this. Move on to the next one and get the offense going!
