Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Upset Watch: MSU & Ohio (Upsets Averted)
BUT what are your thoughts on the unifromzzz?
Skins vs Shirts, use laces or spaces to decide kickoffs
I'm in favor of going back to shirts vs skins. I'd like to see some OMG shirtless dunks.
JINX GOD DAMMIT
sorry for yelling, just upset about the uniformz
State looks terrible right now.
Must be the color scheme on those unis.
tied with less than 10 min left now.
oh wait, you meant in basketball?
in non-conference play? The worse the B1G looks, the worse Michigan looks. I've never understood that.
Because MSU's pain is just oh-so delicious
Only msu's? Both of their pain is scrumptious
True, true. I just happened to actually be watching MSUs when I wrote that.
Of COURSE you can understand how we would want our rivals to lose. What I've never understood are posts like this. . .
They'll both probably end up winning. But I've seen Dawson get rejected 3 times tonight and I haven't been watching long.
I almost always "root" for our future opponents as I want them to have the strongest possible resume when we blow them out. It is a nice problem that we are so highly ranked now, one hardly has to think about it. We take care of business, business takes care of us. (Or something like that...)
This ESPNU broadcast of Sparty is refreshing in that they don't yet feel the need to obsessively show Izzo and his courtside overacting
BGSU gym is pretty nice.
Wow. MSUs offense looks horrible. No outside shooting and so many turnovers. I cant remember the last time they've had such poor talent.
really? they have plenty of talent. they do lack, however, a true point guard and 3 pt shooters (excl harris).
i do think izzo has done a terrible job this year at adapting to those deficiencies. he's got plenty of talent in the paint and doesn't get them signficant opportunities.
their big men are pretty wooden. They are not a real effective team at this stage.
They don't seem to have the hustle and/or fire of McGary and Morgan but i will say that they have better post moves. I'm hoping by season's end to see a lot shimmies, cuts, hooks, and fakes out of those guys.
Is back in town.
This is why I laugh at people who are like ahhh Michigan lacks a killer instinct and only wins by 20... would you rather have our games still be within a couple possessions with less than 10 minutes in the game.
To have to watch. I don't see them as a top 50 team.
that said, my family is from EL, and i warned them that they were overrated early on due to their lack of shooters. it's proven to be so far.
similarly, i expect the illini to come back down to earth once their weak interior play gets exposed by several of the bigger big 10 teams.
Anyone else miss Tim McCormick calling all the old Michigan bball games on ESPN +
As I write this, Purdue is tied with Ball State at 47 with 8:00 to go. Of course them losing to a MAC school isn't really an upset these days...
is purdue the fifth best team then in IN?
BGSU's student section is atrocious.
is it not christmas break?
How is Maxwell doing... is Miller hurt or something. /s
Ugggh...I miss football season.
So after this thread instilled in me the hopes of some sweet, sweet buckeyefruede, I turned on tthe TV to see Ohio up by 15 with 3 minutes to go.
I'd rather see our conference not suck at a aport
Anybody else see Keith Appling drive the lane with 4.2 seconds left to score a floater with game In hand?
So both teams were leading at the half and then both ended up winning by double digits...um...nice thread.
I don't think you understand how the internet works. You posted early, and the teams ended up not being upset. You obviously can control it. It's science.
My point exactly. It's not much of an upset alert at halftime if both teams are leading with that much time left even if it is by a single point. I'm not upset I'm glad the big ten wins out of conference just thought you jumped the gun on this one.
I don't mind it. Both are serious opponents and conference title contenders. Not like too much else is going on.
You must've conveniently missed from halftime until the end of the game where Winthrop and BGSU both put up a great fight.
Michigan state does not look good. I think they may be in for a rough big ten season.
Good to see NC State leading Stanford by 9 with 6:00 to play. On a Tuesday night with no other meaningful sports on, WOOOO former opponents!
My good buddy is a Spartan grad. He told me he talked to his Sparty buddies and they think Michigan is going to roll them when we play.
Good to hear a few Sparty's aren't delusional.
