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

nice layups! Welcome, Andrew.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Not new-threadworthy in my opinion||
But ESPN's front page is reporting Gary Harris is coming back. That's a little surprising to me given his high projection and his nagging shoulder injury, but very good for MSU. Here's to hoping GRIII and MM make teh same decision.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||The socks are disappointing||
They need black socks with bird droppings
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Gary Harris is ready||
His play is very advanced, mentally, and he's not likely to get bigger or much stronger
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Why?||
Are you one of those members who is unable to simply ignore a thread that is clearly described and has no interest to you?
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Good catch||
Must have been my subconscious refusing to acknowledge OSU. Looks like my therapy is working

does not like the B1G. He has all four teams losing their sweet sixteen games????
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed||
And it sucks that they are the most likely of the bunch to actually raise the banner
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Sweet 16 isn't my goal||
If all we do is beat two crappy teams and get to the Sweet 16, I won't be happy.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Who cares||
You have to judge whether or not it was a bad loss by how you played, not how highly ranked your opponent is.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||We are not a top 12 team||
We are 5 th in our conference and as good as our conference is, I can pick 5 Big East teams that are better than us, too. U am pretty sure there are another 5 spread out around the country.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||This is 100% accurate||
And it sucks. We are the team I love because we are Michigan and the team I hate and use an example for the kids I coach to demonstrate how not to play basketball. And that is perhaps the most painful season long experience I have ever gone through.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Things change||
This is the current reality. I cheer for Michigan and for Michigan's players. The second they take the floor I completely forget about what they are wearing. That was the case in 1990, 2000, 2010 and now.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||A little awkward||
As I understand it Big Dog was a little absent as a father. He did a good job on that panel but it seemed obvious that Tim is more in tune with what his son is going through.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Pretty much what I expected||
any decent team would look at this tourney has a chance to come out fresh with intensity. So naturally, we come out and play the shittiest defense imaginable and get manhandled in every facet.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Mbakwe getting Gus warmed up for us||
HA HAAAAA Big Fella
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Minnesota is dangerous||
if they stay interested. I'd love to see them play IU.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Scumbag||
Think about the mentality he must have. It's disgusting. They just clinched a B1G title and likely one seed and have a great team and his focus is on isolating out the opposing team's assistant and berating him for things that (a) he probably had little or nothing to do with and (b) happened when Crean had nothing to do with IU. How about having a positive attitude and celebrating your team's accomplishments?
What a fucking loser.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Total fluff, but...||
I just watched the post-game interviews with Burke and Levert on umhoops.com and that's really the first time I've heard Levert. He's a great interview - humble and responsive, not just full of cliches.
I think as he gets more mature he's going to be a real glue guy for us.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||As a hoops fan||
I LOVE this conference. It may often lack elite teams but I think it is going to be a very competitive conference with a lot of quality teams.
This is just an observation, but as a lawyer, this reminds me of how the past ten years saw a couple of co-evolving trends. Lots of mergers of firms into mega-firms and at the same time a lot of smaller boutique firms that are ultra specialized formed and are succeeding.
That new conference is a nice boutique hoops league and as long as they don't overreach or try to turn it into something else, they should do quite well.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Interesting article||
What a life. He's gone through so much that his perspective at age 33 is probably more reasoned than men 10 years older. As he explains it, you can really envision feeling the way he did at age 23 - being frustrated and wanting to get on the big stage. And his hindsight is perfect, "What was my hurry? I was only 23. Who cares if it takes another 18 months at AAA?"
Seems like he's got great perspective on things now.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Hold on||
Three point defense is only random if you play it. I don't think KenPom or Brian or anyone with functioning eyeballs would say that if you leave scholarship athletes open or don't close out or don't raise your arms in the air that that increase a teams likelihood of making threes.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||I think many of us||
Might prefer a forfeit over what the alternatives appear to be at this point.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Robinson is horribly out of position||
On rebounds. He watches the shot but does not always get his body on a man
|11 weeks 3 days ago||It's a nice dream||
But anyone who thinks this team has a chance to get to a Final Four is kidding themselves. They have demonstrated throughout the season an absolute lack of mental tenacity. So unless everyone rolls over for us or unless we miraculously draw 4 teams that are afraid to play defense there is no way we win 4 games against teams that really want to beat us.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||I can shoot 6-10||
When I'm wide open. fundamental defensive principle - make the guy you are checking feel uncomfortable by forcing him to do what he doesn't like to do. That is something we suck at.

Mich 71 MSU 67
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Won't IU be the likely 1||
In that bracket? If do, that won't happen and we should be thankful
|12 weeks 1 day ago||You're right.||
I hold myself in contempt
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Discriminated against?||
Nope. Made fun of? Yup.
But don't let that deter you from enjoying the the comraderie here. I commend you for showing your love for all things Michigan.
