stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
4 wins from another B1G Title.
Now let's bang...
...posbang, that is.
I LOVE MICHIGAN
That's all you can ask for, now go out and get it boys!
Blank.....Blank......You're not looking at the big picture here.
Here's a gif of Tubby dancing.
I don't think this is correct. We are tied with Wisconsin, and they beat us head to head. We only play them once. Am I missing something or wouldn't Wisconsin be Big Ten champs if we were to be tied at the top with just them?
EDIT: I guess I was wrong. Same record is a split title. I guess it makes sense considering they didn't have to come to our place.
We both win the conference, but they will get the #1 line in the B1G tournament- I do believe.

I don't think the B1G has a tie breaker since they don't have a balanced schedule. What ever the final records are is all that matters.
"Anyone who isn't confused, really doesn't understand the situation." - Edward R. Murrow
I think we would get #1 Seed if we win out because we would have an overall ranking better than Wisconsin. For instance if we were #1 or #2 and Wisconsin was #10, we would B1G Ten #1 Seed.
Let's say Michigan and Wisco finish the regular season atop the rankings. Wisco gets the #1 seed because of tie-breaker #1. Ranking does not matter at all.
1. Results of head-to-head competition during the regular season.
2. Each team's record vs. the team occupying the highest position in the final regular season standings (or in the case of a tie for the championship, the next highest position in the regular season standings) continuing down through the standings until one team gains an advantage.
3. Won-loss percentage of all Division I opponents.
4. Coin toss conducted by the Commissioner or designee.
If it's a multi-team tie, then ranking still doesn't matter:
2. If the remaining teams are still tied, then each tied team's record shall be compared to the team occupying the highest position in the final regular-season standings, continuing down through the standings until one team gains an advantage.

Should we point instead of fist pump during the Victors?
Good Gotham, that one damn shot. It haunts my dreams.
People, come on . . . I click on this thread thinking it's going to be jubliant and you're all buzzkills. The Wisconsin game doesn't matter now. This result effectively wipes it out. We win out and we're Big Ten champs.
If you haven't figured out Bo Ryan made a deal with the devil yet...
I'm not mad at the hoops deities. Ohio State could have easily gone the other way, and I would MUCH rather lose to Wisconsin.
He didn't make a deal with him, they're the same person.
It makes the MSU game must win (as well as the other road games) and most likely removes the chance to win it outright. It goes from only a major collapse costing us the title to having to win out. That game still matters big time.

Here's what I mean. If IU, as expected, had won today and we had won in Madison, we'd be in the exact same situation as we are - one game behind IU and likely needing to win out.
The breaks tend to balance out. People forget how close we came to losing to Ohio at home. And IU's loss to Illinois was arguably as shocking as ours to UW when you think about how big a lead they gave up. Anyhow, if we had won in Madison, maybe IU would have brought their "A" game tonight, knowing they had to protect their lead in the standings.
this have a way of evening out over a season or through the years...
now, lets lock this shit down and win a big ten championship.
We are the dead.
I now get mad if I even see a halfcourt shot get made. It's become a sickness as I can't even watch video of the fans at an NBA game making a halfcourt shot for prize money without wanting to punch them in the face.
They've done nothing wrong, but I just get irrationally angry at half-court shots....that and Cheese. Basically.........Fuck Wisconsin.
Chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being sought. It always defeats order because it is better organized.
How could you be mad a cheese? It makes both pizza and cheeseburgers possible with its melty deliciousness.
Because Wisconsin = Cheese and F#*k Wisconsin, that's why.
Nobody said it was rational

"Fix the cigarette lighter."
Aren't you people forgetting MSU beat them in Madison and they still have to go to EL next week? They won't win that!
I would actaully love to see them win that game, then lose against Purrrooooo shit... Well at least lose against Penn ssssoooooo shit .... Well damn.
...that the Wisconsin game would huant us for a long time. Even if we manage to win out & somehow luck into an outright B1G title and possibly even an NCAA title...I still think that game will irritate me everytime I think of it.
I guess that I need to start boozin again. F'n Lent scrifices!
need to win out. Don't celebrate yet!
Warning: My imagination is inefficient.
We? I see that Badger you half-court-miracle-loving bastard.
DEATH TO BACKBOARDS. DEATH TO THE HALFCOURT.
Photography Facebook Page. Lots of Michigan sports photos. And planes, lots of planes:
And just like that MICHIGAN's BIG Ten title hopes are very much alive!
Also Tubby's seat just cooled down.
Possibly get that would be better than tubby??
They think they can get Shaka Smart. Apparently there's some connection with Minnesota's AD.
It's Minny. They fired Glen Mason for Tim Brewster. They don't need to get someone better. They'll probably still fire Tubby after this and hire that cheerleader who hit a flip throw from halfcourt.

F*CK F*CK YA BEAT THE SPARTANS!!!!!!
MARCH 10TH may just have turned into The Game of the Year (assuming we beat MSU)
Class of 2008 and 2009
Fuck half court shots.
If not for that, we'd be in great shape at least a shared title.
It's time to move on from that. All we have to do now is win four games, and we're Big Ten champs.
JM? That couldn't possibly stand for Jim McIlvaine, former NBA player for the Bullets hailing from Racine, WISCONSIN, could it? Nice try you Ryan-worshipping fire-crotch-loving bastard.
This would be funnier if I could believe you were joking.
Our basketball team gets a huge break tonight and all people want to do is relive the most painful moment of the season? If we win out, we're Big Ten champs and a surefire #1 seed in the tourney. Don't look for warts.
Winning out is going to be extremely difficult, and we wouldn't have to do it were it not for that miracle. I think it's pretty normal to point out this fact.
McIlvane played at Marquette. If anything he probably hates the Badgers more than we do.
where is tasnyder01's thread? that dude called it with minutes to go, and now there is no remnant of that wonderful thread. ah, mods.

You might have to travel south to a warmer climate to find that thread. I heard Bolivia is nice this time of year
I posted it with Minn up 7 with a minute left to go. Figured I'd get some flak, but...I went to Bolivia? Wut?
No not you. Just the thread because as soon as everyone saw it, we all knew what the reactions were going to be and by the time I got to my computer it was already gone
Bolivia is no place to enjoy life from what I've heard; however, unknowingly residing there is just plain tragic.
You could do worse in South America. You could do worse in Mexico.
and the first fifteen were pretty much all "you should get banned for posting this" and "WTF dude". This one popped up and it looked a lot more promising.
By the nice team!

We are going to have some BIG football recruiting opportunities coming up in Chrysler. Gotta get some guys on campus.
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.

They use Chrysler to recruit. Chevrolet if its Pryor.
