Not sure these count as thoughts.
Thoughts on #2 Michigan vs Eastern Mich
my wife keeps telling me I'm thoughtless
Not sure why it would be surprising we're sold out. We're the #2 team in nation, so Michigan fans, especially ones coming back home for the holidays, want to see them before Big Ten play (and pricing) kicks in, and we're also only a few minutes away from the school and fanbase we're playing. That being said, I'd expect the student spillover sections to be quite empty anyways.
I imagine a lot of parents have been asked by their kids to see a game- and now that school is getting out and the game is cheaper than future Big Ten games I don't think it's too surprising- it's great to see the excitement about UM Basketball again though! Who would have thought 5 years ago we'd be receiving first place votes and be poissibly undefeated heading into Big Ten play to DEFEND a Big Ten title...
Thoughts: May not see as much rest from players as you would think since it is a slower week and players may not need as much rest. Plus with Horford injury the big man rotation will stay the same as it has been. Spike and Caris will hopefully see more time because we should crush Eastern- not because of break would be my guess. Im also not sure you want to rest Burke too much- if he stays on fire I would want to keep fueling that fire and aim for 30-35 minutes especialyl knowing he will have time to rest after the game- let him stay hot.
it is surprizing that we are sold out considering that only about a quarter of the upper bowl was filled during various BIG games during the Fab Five years forgadsakes. Michigan selling out Eastern Michigan is notable, this state has basketball fever right now.
at Madison Square Garden recently, they made the crowd seem fuller by blacking out the upper most tier. I had to point that out to people with me, they had not noticed.
havent been in the Center, but know the Arena could not have done it without a cheesy look. I suspect the proper lighting is important.
really hard to imagine the full full place for Eastern.
we'll see tonight!
Speaking as someone who was at the Eastern game in 1997, to see us lose in overtime one week after we beat #1 Duke, that really sucked. That game was sold out as well but the students were home for Christmas and sold their tickets. I sat in the upper bowl, which was about 70% Eastern fans and they took that place over.
I'd prefer it if Eagle nation didn't take Crisler over again. Has UM started their Christmas break yet?
Today is our last day of finals.
I believe last finals are this Thursday?
Thursday is the last day of finals
I've been to TONS and TONS of Michigan football games, but this will be the first time I've ever been to a game at Crisler arena
The arena is quite the site to see now. And ohh ya, the product on display on the basketball court isn't too shabby either.
I know its not your fault for calling it 'product' but I wanted to take the time to say how much I detest calling it 'product'.
Let's call it....'entertainment'.
I hope if dogs ever take over the world, and they chose a king, they don't just go by size, because I bet there are some chihuahuas with some good ideas.
Is an asshat a hat for your ass or an ass-shaped hat for your head? Thoughts?
It is someone with their head up their Buttocks, thus wearing there ass as a hat. See also cock knuckle and dip shit.
If dogs take over the world, our dog better hook me up for picking up her poop for 3 years.
At least for now a victory tomorrow would be more than dreck as Eastern Michigan is a top 100 RPI team (realtimerpi.com).
Team's got to stay focused and take care of this next game.
The world ends on the 21st.
Michigan seems to be getting better and better they're at home where they play lights out I have a feeling this won't be close.
"I don't know anything about Eastern Michigan, but they're in trouble."
and will bring some fans plus I could get nosebleed tickets for under $15 to take all the kids. It would be more of a surprise imho if this game didn't sell out, or close to it. UM hoops is the most exciting sports product (not just bball) around here in some time and Trey Burke could be UM's highest pro draft pick since Jake Long.
...I had a krytonite cross, so I can keep both Superman and Dracula away.
Am I missing something?
No, but the OP sure is
Just a suggestion
And people actually showing up.
Grammar. It needs work.
The worst part is that this guy told us he was 27 years old, so I can't even give him the "maybe he's an eighth grader" benefit of the doubt.
He just hates compound sentences. It's ok. I understand. They're hard to figure out at first.
Me Grimlock, strong!
I'm pretty sure at least 50% of the people that like to post also masturbate to grammar manuals...
When most people learned enough grammer to get through a post.
You had an interesting childhood.
First of all, if you're going to abbreviate "tomorrow" at least note how many "m's" are in the word...
I'm thinking about not going to this because I have a lot to do. I have 2 seats in one of the first few rows and if your interested in buying my tickets, then my decision will be much easier to do the right thing and work. My email is [email protected], if you contact me tell me your from mgoblog.
The 2 seats are in the first few rows, so if Your interested just email me, they're really good seats.
Guessing you're an english professor?
When Mgoblog is not working, who do you troll and downvote with your free time? (To distinct few who feel the need to belittle rather than just keep moving along. In one ear out the other.)
Your MgoBlog sometimes doesnt work?
Just for the edification of the board, according to ESPN, Eastern Michigan is 330th in average PPG at 57.2, 314th in average APG at 10.3, and 321st in average FG percentage at 38.7%. They lost 84-48 to Syracuse, and 74-48 to Illinois-Chicago just this past Saturday, with the former being their sole ranked opponent this year. If anything, my thought on this game is that I am not anticipating any problems.
They did beat purdue this year though. Not that it is a big accomplishment this year...
Hurr durr you don't punctuate or capitalize the things you type. Thoughts voided, snowflakes incoming. Vitriol, vitriol, clicquish what.
I really hope english isn't your first language; your grammar is inexcusable otherwise.
