If MSU lost, they wouldn't have been in sych yet. Tom is one step ahead of you.

Izzo has manipulated the if/then narrative like a master all season and the media has been complicit. This is how coaches at major programs survive unfulfilled expectations: "If we we weren't hurt, then we would have beaten Michigan, won the B10 and been the team playing for a #1."
As I said earlier, the Staee alumni need to hear this. If Izzo wins today, the season long narrative works as intended and his stature remains intact. Lose and he has to fall back on the "if we hadn't spen so much time playing with a short roster, then we would have been in better synch against Michigan."

Useful starting pitching - which is a conservative value statement on a guy like Peavy - is always more useful that a SS that projects to an optimistic .300/.300/.600 slash-line. I'm not sure that Dombrowski got taken, but the Red Sox have, and will, benefit.

I was intially bearish on this matchup. In the last hour or so, I'm feeling better about it. We have more guys playing better offensively than they do with GRIII and Lavert contributing more as of late.
They have two guys that really worry me - Payne and Harris. And Payne finally had his first good game today (against bad interior defense). Dawson still isn't right. We fucking own Appling - shit, he's practically an embedded Wolverine over the course of his career. Staee may go off on us, but I'm feeling pretty zen about the matter.

UVA plays Manball: walk the ball, gritty defense. We do ok against those teams when we're not giving up possessions.

I appreciate this sentiment, but Craft has gotten an undeserved run for the past few years as a gritty over achiever. Folks are kind of tired of the act.

Craft must've been trying to draw a foul there, no? How else could that have looked so ugly?

I hear you. I'm just worried that our loss today (if it happens), coupled with the sheen that an ACC tourney win would give Duke/UVA, would be all the voters need to keep us at a #3. I have a feeling that Staee beats Wisconsin - while setting the game back approximately 30 years.

We had more steals last year. I'm thinking that Lavert and Walton should improve in that metric with another year.
|1 day 23 hours ago||I thought there were times||
I thought there were times where our set defense did manage to cut off penetration. The last few minutes of the half we were careless with the ball. Hard to play defense after turnovers.

Not a great finish, boys. Ohio thinks they can play with us.

Keep an eye on NC State/Duke. NC State and TJ Warren have been playing well and Duke is vulnerable outside Cameron.
As stated elsewhere, we need Duke and UVA to not win the ACC tournament in order for UM to secure a #2 in the dance (win or lose) or leap to #1 if we run the BTT table. I have a bad feeling that a loss against Ohio could drop us and our 8 losses to a #3.
