the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

Beilein is a very good coach, but his end of the game strategy was really bad tonight. He'll get hammered for sitting Burke so long, but his other mistakes were more costly.
I'm proud that he represents Michigan, but he wasn't up to the task tonight. He's a very good coach. He got beat by a better one.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||All Hail Kenpom||
I doubted Kenpom's prediction for this game. During the second half, it was clear he was way off with his Michigan by 1 prediction. Then, not so much. I'm stupid. He's smart.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Disappointing team.||
Disappointing team. Definitely deserved to be the fifth seed in this tournament, and shouldn't be better than a four in the NCAA tourney.
If I watched the season in reverse, I'd think Beilein was an awesome coach.

Every coach supports charities. That comes with the job. Why did you join just to post these two comments. Are you related to Coach Crean?
|10 weeks 10 hours ago||I think Michigan has been||
I think Michigan has been outscored 1687-12 in the first four minutes of games this season. That's what my brain is telling me at least. So many slow starts in big games, then the rest of the first half is spent trying to pull it within 5.
|10 weeks 10 hours ago||Why are we walking away from||
Why are we walking away from Hulls? Don't leave the best three point shooter in the conference open.
|10 weeks 12 hours ago||Penn State did a horrible job||
Penn State did a horrible job defending that last play. They did not learn from our mistake.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Most college players make||
Most college players make wide open shots, so it might be a while until they miss.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||This is the softest team in||
This is the softest team in the Big Ten. It shouldn't be so easy to come back from a double digit lead against a "top ten" team. Michigan lets everyone do it.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Well, it's a good thing||
Well, it's a good thing that's how it works. Since we lost now, it's guaranteed that we won't lose in three weeks. I don't know why every team doesn't follow this awesome strategy.
Maybe losing this game and looking like crap during the past few weeks is a good indicator that we will lose in three weeks.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||This team has regressed more||
This team has regressed more than any team in the country. No one that has watched them during the last three weeks would put them at fourth. They are beyond terrible on defense.

Imagine what Michigan would look like if they played with the same intensity as Penn State tonight.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||It's not the ref's fault that||
It's not the ref's fault that Michigan can't play defense and they are playing with zero composure on offense. If Michigan was doing what they should be doing, this game wouldn't be anywhere close enough for the refs to be a factor.
|13 weeks 12 hours ago||Regardless of the reason they||
Regardless of the reason they haven't played well, they haven't played well. Also, it is ridiculous to say that every team can win on any given day. If that were true, Penn State wouldn't be 0-12 right now. I can see that you feel like you are the doing the team a service by defending them, but you are still allowed to make rational arguments. People are allowed to be frustrated when they watch sports. It happens. If they are frustrated because their team has played poorly for several games, that is valid.
|13 weeks 13 hours ago||I think people are frustrated||
I think people are frustrated because it's been a long time since we've seen this team play well. Playing the worst team in the Big Ten was an opportunity for them to get their act together. That is clearly not happening so far. It's frustrating.
|13 weeks 13 hours ago||State fans sound pretty||
State fans sound pretty exuberant right now. They recently humiliated their biggest rival. That's pretty different than what we've been put through.
|13 weeks 13 hours ago||Has coach B. had this team||
Has coach B. had this team ready to play at the beginning of any game this season? There comes a time when the hugs and feel good discussions don't work. Maybe try being tough. What he's doing now is not working. It's frustrating to see so much talent and potential wasted. Where's the leadership?
|13 weeks 13 hours ago||I think it's safe to say that||
I think it's safe to say that Michigan isn't a very good team right now despite the record. They were great early in the season and they've just looked worse and worse in each outing. Michigan has regressed while other teams have improved.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Even with that we won by 2||
Even with that we won by 2 points...at home. We now have extended our winning streak to one. Since MSU plays out of their mind against us, being the better team doesn't guarantee a win. We actually need to show up and meet the inensity of our rivals. We were very far from doing that tonight.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Has any team regressed more||
Has any team regressed more than Michigan since the beginning of the season? Comparing one of their games from early on to one of the games now is scary. Meanwhile MSU has improved a ton. All of the other top Big Ten teams seem to be improving (OSU, MSU, Wisconsin, Indiana) while Michigan looks worse and worse every outing. Beilein needs to step up.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Wisconsin game: Choke MSU||
Wisconsin game: Choke
MSU game: Joke
This team needs a huge kick in the arse, unfortunately Zack Novak ain't walking through that door anytime soon.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I never thought too much||
I never thought too much about people "getting" the rivalries, but it does seem like OSU and MSU come out and play harder against us in both football and basketball. I know the coaches talk about the rivalries a lot, but the team doesn't come out with any passion or toughness. MSU and OSU come out ready to rock.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||At least GR3 isn't in. He||
At least GR3 isn't in. He should sit the rest of the game. The team has already given up, so Coach B. should at least send a message. I hope they are running sprints in practice instead of sitting in a circle sharing their feelings tomorrow.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Right, everyone would choose||
Right, everyone would choose that. But, taking a dump now does not mean that they will be better in March. Taking a dump now and taking a dump in March are not mutually exclusive. These tough losses don't seem to be leading to improvement.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Right, they'll make it a||
Right, they'll make it a little closer and still lose. Being resilient hasn't actually lead to a win yet. Just false hope.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Saying most shots were||
Saying most shots were contested is being pretty generous.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||It's ok guys. After the loss||
It's ok guys. After the loss to Wisconsin they all sat around and mentioned one thing they could do better. So, they're all set now. You can tell that lit a fire under them.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||This game is a joke. That||
This game is a joke. That last series where they got 100 offensive rebounds looked like me playing against my 9 year old son.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Are you kidding? There is no||
Are you kidding? There is no way you can believe that. You have some serious Maize colored glasses if you truly believe all three of those players are better than Gary Harris.
