I clicked on to jump in and say that the @Neb win and the Charlotte loss as my answers and I see you beat me to it!
But make no mistake about it, every win is appreciated greatly by me and there were many....many significant wins this year. Losing to Charlotte pisses me off because of the overall record thing and trying to get a 1 Seed.
If we beat Charlotte, 24-6 and potentially 27-6 is somehow way better than 26-7, amazing how that works. Losing to AZ still pisses me off and if we were to play AZ at home right now, we would win that game, in the NCAA's, it would be a great game.
Had we won those 2 games where we lost both by a basket, our record would be 25-5 right now. We have a dangerous team no matter what though, Coach B has proven to be a tough out in the tourney and now he has talent.
I'm expecting great things again, sweet 16 is very possible and elite 8 or better would be cool with me. We have great guard play, many guys that can handle the rock and a really good shooting team with numerous guys who can score, that's what you call a nightmare for opponents.
If we come to play any kinda of defense and rebound decently, we can win against anyone.

with not wanting to face Kentucky at all, they are a young team prone to mistakes, we are a smart team prone to making the right plays.
We can beat anyone in the country if we shoot the ball normally, we don't even need to be hot, just shot our avg. % and we're in any game against anyone, defense will be the key. If we're in a hot shooting zone, look out, we'll cream people.

We're having ourselves a posbang party!!!!
What a well played, efficient pressure game we played, dominated from the start, ala the Florida game in the elite 8 last year. I'm looking forward to some more fun times in the tourney!!!
|1 week 3 days ago||If the shoulders were also whit||
they might look cool, but that shaded in shoulder thing makes it look cheesy, plus the helmet, yeah, too much.
|1 week 5 days ago||Impressive win||
when you consider that Minny really needed the win, we came ready to play and focused, very impressed, I love this team, GO BLUE, HAIL!!!!
|1 week 6 days ago||As was stated above by many||
If it's 40 "minor" violations than the word minor shouldn't apply, it's a big joke.
We get sited for over-practicing and other schools are running rampant with a slap on the wrist.
NCAA is a big fat joke!

Nik playing the way he did was so huge and awesome, we needed that.
Levert played great too and the rest of the guys brought their A game too, Go Blue!!!
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe with us losing||
Sparty will play an uninspired game as well, crossing my fingers.
|4 weeks 12 hours ago||I hear ya and I understand where you're coming from||
However, Horford only RS'd because of injury and Morgan had a lot of developing to do when he came in, Donnal was a much more polished player coming in.
Also, don't forget that our program is in much better shape now and recruiting is way stronger than it was when Morgan RS'd.
|4 weeks 12 hours ago||Yeah, you're probably correct on that||
I was wondering if Coach B might have thought about it when Mitch had to have back surgery
|4 weeks 12 hours ago||let me guess||
autocorrect? I hate autcorrect, don't you, it's usually a pain in the arse.
|4 weeks 12 hours ago||Haha wiseguy||
I understand where you're coming from, hey, I'm a huge Beilein fan, he's an awesome coach and a class guy.
I'm just saying that in college ball, red-shirting guys isn't all that big of an advantage, go ahead and play guys that are good enough to play and get some experience. Who knows who's coming back or not next year and see what you have in a guy now, that's all I'm saying.
|4 weeks 12 hours ago||I still think||
we should have played him this year, red-shirting guys in college is a waste IMHO, just go ahead and play them, we coulda used another big who could be getting experience, can shoot from outside, apparently has good hop for a white guy (whatever that means).
We are recruiting well enough now to play guys, with Mitch getting injured, Donnal might have helped big time.
|4 weeks 12 hours ago||At 6'9"||
he's supposed to be a good outside shooter, can't wait to see this kid play, the future is bright for the BBall Program!
|4 weeks 12 hours ago||Well I certainly||
hope we win more than 9 games, that being said, I like the comments about us being more efficient on offense by rushing for more yards, getting 1st downs and hopefully having a lockdown defense, kinda like MSU has been recently and what we used ti be like, works for me.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Well||
that just makes the looks on their fans faces that much more enjoyable to see while we were obviously about to beat them in their house, fun time.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I won't mind at all||
when Damien re-commits and we all get confused by which D. Harris has the ball.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||plus one for you||
and you and you and you and also you and many more.....
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I'm here for the posbang bash||
Beat ohio, sparty and bucky all on the road sans McGary, hell yeah!!!
What a quality win against a team that was getting hot and really needing a win!
|6 weeks 10 hours ago||Quite frankly this was a great win||
Purdue always gives us a hard time and we're coming off a tough stretch to boot.
Levert and Walton keep getting better, Nik is, well....Nik, Morgan/Horford keep playing at a very dependable level.
GRIII needs to get back to playing the way he was before these last 2 games, I have faith in him, he steps up a lot when we need him to.
The coaches are top notch, we're in good hands, if we can go a minimum 6-4 before the BTT and end up going at least 22-8 after the regular season, I would have to imagine that would put us as the 1st or 2nd seed, great position to be in.
Just think how good we would be had McGary been playing all along and healthy.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Wow, 400+ comments and counting||
I hesitated whether to comment on this or not, obviously I have decided to do so. I'm not sure if this has been mentioned or not, I didn't have the time to read all the comments.
First and foremost, rape is a dispicable crime that violates a person (usually a woman) in so many ways, not to mention how they think and feel for the rest of their lives.
I'm not here to judge or declare who is guilty or who is a victim, however there seems to be a lot of smoke here and if this did indeed happen, I am sickened by this and I just wonder from a team standpoint if this hurt the leadership of the squad, since Lewan was a Captain and Gibbons was a 5th year sr., it's possible the younger players just weren't inspired by those two guys and it ended up hurting the team internally. maybe we shouldn't be surprised by the results of the season, who knows?
Maybe those two should have been reprimanded, if it did happen, Gibbons should have been expelled way sooner, like 3 years ago, and Lewan should have been suspended for however long with a chance to earn his way back on the team for his role in the matter.
However this turns out, I hope the university does what is proper and not embarrassing to the school. A persons life and how they may be violently affected is more important than football.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Hey DC||
