Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

My suggestion for Bacari's pregame speech tonight...
"If you finish a game out of first after beating Sparty and Indiana because you blew it against Penn State AND Purdue, you'll take it to your fucking grave!"
Play like Michigan. BEAT. PURDUE.
Luckily, there is a tournment at the end of the season where everyone controls their own destiny. Once you're on the main grid, it only takes six wins.
But it only takes two wins to hang a Conference Championship banner. Let's do that first. Then we can worry about hanging a NCAA Championship banner.
We're two wins from a conference title, folks. Go Blue, Beat Purdue!
It is fitting that the Penn State loss is virtually meaningless. I suppose if we had won, we could be playing for the conference outright, but a conference title is still a conference title. It's (almost) like that loss never happened.
Also, in a conference as tough as the Big Ten this year, it's only fitting we finish in a 4-way tie.
Oh the Penn State loss happened and we'll be feeling the repercussions of it once the seeds come out for the NCAA tourney. Still, as low as we all were last week, it's awesome to suddenly be very much alive for the conference title hunt.
Something I don't understand about our Penn State loss is that a lot of people are pegging Kansas as a 1-seed when they play in a weaker conference than the Big Ten and have a worse loss (to TCU) than we do.
I have the same confusion. They did win at OSU and at K State, so maybe better road wins forms the rationale.
Your ability to polish a turd impresses me.
Hopefully Purdue is our "Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed " moment.
I want this team to be back to back conference champs like everyone else, but sharing sucks, especially with your hated rivals. Nebraska '97 is one thing, sharing with Ohio and possibly Sparty is sickening.
So you'd rather lose one or both of our final two games to avoid sharing with them?
I know that's not what you meant, haha. I agree that winning outright > sharing with anyone but OSU/MSU > sharing with combination of OSU/MSU > not winning one at all.
Sharing a jail cell, a spouse, or last place- bad
Sharing a championship- good
...and no chance to avenge, factor into this if we both have 5 losses at the end?
On 3pt FG made tonight? How's Nik's face, is he active?
