According to Tim's rooting guide I guess we are pulling for Sullingers? I am watching the game all I feel is hate. I hope they both lose.
to watch. Who to root for? I guess it has to be tosu because they will make the tourney while lil bro is on the bubble like us.
I'm rooting for meteor.
That why you negged the OP?
Like neg posts for no reason?
As long as you're consistent.
Neg the OP and then post twice (so far)?
Thats like calling out an ugly chick in front of your friends, and then later banging that same chick twice.
That's how you play the game! Ain't nothing wrong with drawing fouls.
What's that you say? WHL hockey is on? I'm there.
When Kebler and Thornton are on the floor for MSU, they are essentially playing 3-on-5 on offense.
EDIT: Of course as I write this, Kebler and Thornton get consecutive bunnies, and now Kelber hits a J.
It reminds me of the legendary "White guys and walk-ons" lineup we used two years ago.
I will also be rooting for a meteor. However, if I have to root for a team in this game I'm picking MSU because contrary what Tim's rooting guide may advise, MSU is probably our best win and it doesn't help our tourney efforts if the team that our best win came against keeps racking up the losses.
Draymond was haning out with Jordan Dumars and some other guys at Bell's Saturday night around 3am. Dude is big. I was heavily intoxicated and felt bad for him because he was pizza-less and offered to buy him a slice but he declined politely.
He probably didn't want to risk getting busted for "improper benefits" per some obscure NCAA regulation. Good call if you ask me. That's still cool that you offered to buy him a slice IMO.
End of 1st half, 35-34 Hometown Chlamydia over Visiting VD.
We need to beat Wisconsin at home. That shores up our main weakness (no real signature victory as defined by the national media). This also helps with SOS and RPI. 3-2 finish would be pretty good if Wisconsin is one of the wins. I'm really amped for the Illinois game tomorrow.
5: Over under for how many Big East teams lose in the first weekend of the Tourney if the league gets in 10 teams.
That would mean five teams in the Sweet Sixteen
Good game so far.
I thought after the last game that a sleeping giant had been woken (in Sparty). Looks like I was onto something.
Best case = MSU 12 point win and somehow all starters on both teams get mono.
I think I see wheels coming loose.
I've resigned myself to OSU being good this year, so any more turmoil that can be piled on MSU is ok in my book.
This a no-win scenario as a Michigan fan, but I would like to see Izzo miss the tourney for once. TOSU is a lock already, so not a big deal if they drop this one. Gotta respect Craft's game. Kid plays really hard on D and kind of reminds me of Novak in a less gritty, hairy kind of way.
I would looooooooooove to see Sparty playing in the NIT.
I'm enjoying all these losses but I still feel our game against them at Crisler is going to be a dog fight.
and I like to puff out my lower lip after I make a shot.
Shades of Kobe, with less skill.
Musberger makes bad situations worse. Mute is my friend.
is one of the smartest and most fundamentally sound basketball players I've ever seen in the NCAA. And that pisses me off.
Gameday is going to East Lansing on Saturday? For a 14-11 team against a 16-10 team?
Surely there's a better game than that.
Gameday for basketball is picked before the season starts, not during like in football. Considering MSU's preseason ranking, it is kind of understandable.
+1 for the proper rendering of Illinois's record.
It really is a huge leap when you break 10 losses, isn't it? Way bigger than 9 losses psychologically.
About time Green got T'd up. He was mouthing off at the officials all game against us and they let it go.
Both Dick and Brent are fully convinced that Sparty makes the tournament because of their strength of schedule? So a current record of 14-11 assures you a tourney bid just because of your schedule...interesting.
Yeah, I sorta figure you have to win the games in order to brag about your strength of schedule, but what do I know?
Still, a 9-9 MSU team gets in because MSU is the vampire that won't die.
It is Freep math. You need to LOSE these games so that it makes those other teams look better!!
Big Ten Standings as of 11:26 p.m. 2/15/11:
5. Michigan: 16-10 (6-7)
7. Michigan State: 14-11 (6-7)
The "Big Ten basketball is boring and ugly" meme always annoys the crap out of me, and it's even more annoying when the meme's proponents have a game like that for ammo. Glad I didn't decide to play the "MSU Turnover" drinking game. LIVER ASPLODE.
You'd be dead.
Could not pay me to watch MSU vs OSU
