Final Four bound!!!!!!!!
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Ten 4 Minute Stretches||
Yeah, I'm good at mathematics.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Control the Four Minute Stretches||
I would love to see us play in a manner where the game is essentially eight 4 minutes stretches. Control each one, cut off any and all Florida runs. I'm nervous about this game (obv being obv), but not as scared as the Kansas game. This feels like an edge-Michigan game for some reason, despite us being a 5-point KenPom dog.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Except Gus Johnson and Bill Raftery||
There is a video of Gus Johnson and Bill Raftery "calling" Landon Donovan's goal against Algeria. Extraordinary.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Conditions are Part of the Home Field Advantage in WCQ||
It's funny how the US didn't file a protest after the Honduras game, where it was intentionally scheduled in the middle of the day, and the day was designated as a Honduran national holiday to ensure the best possible fan turnout. If the answer by FIFA is anything other than bellowed laughter, I'm going to think something is up. Oh wait, FIFA is already corrupt. Crap.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Gophers down 10||
At least they're making it competitive and showing that Florida is not invincible.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Big Tennnnn!||
6-1 in the first round. Not too shabby. Minny looked good too-maybe they needed out of the slog that was the B1G Conference. Hopefully the record keeps up, starting with us at noon. Go Blue!
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Maybe the Game from Sunday...||
Will light a fire. They played inspired, just couldn't hold on. I'm looking forward to the B1G Tournament (and not just because I have an all-session ticket). If (when) we go on a run, the slew of teams we get a chance for revenge at is sweet. Also, while we have some glaring flaws, all teams do this year. An NCAA run from the 2 or 3 is not out of the question (it may be likely, actually).
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Not only that||
But if Crean is going to act petulant, he should realize that he took the job knowing it was under sanctions. He shouldn't complain.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||I feel no sympathy for him||
He knew what he was getting into when he took the job. Taunting Meyer after the fact is the ultimate sign of a gigantic douchebag. Indiana can have him - I'm glad we have the class act Beilein.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||I can't take much more of this||
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Rebounding in the Second Half is the Key||
If we can close that gap, we are in business. Hopefully having Morgan and McGary back in will help.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Penn St with Halftime lead||
Hopefully they can hold on in the second half - would be nice to see Wisky relegated to the first round of the BTT, as well as give PSU a third conference win to make our loss less stigmatizing.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Gophers and Illini making Iowa's case interesting||
Iowa is 9-9. They will scream bloody murder if the Gophers and Illini get in at 8-10.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks||
UM needs to take care of business against IU, because it would take a big upset in the other games for UM to get the first round bye (either NW would have to beat Sparty, or PSU would have to beat Wisky).
|11 weeks 1 day ago||MN plays at Purdue, IL plays at OSU||
Lose both, they are both 8-10. If both are safely in, then that is a pretty crappy bubble. Not sure what will happen, but a sub-.500 conference record, even In a tough conference, is hard to justify.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Minnesota about to lose to Nebraska||
IL and MN are playing themselves off the bubble.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Whew!||
No more road games!
Fat Tire - so glad it came to Michigan.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Interesting||
It's nice to see the B1G getting so much respect. Even Minnesota, after their annual mid-season free fall, has righted the ship momentarily and is back to receiving votes.
Rankings, despite how maligned they are, tend to follow (within +/- 2 how seedings are placed for the tournament. I like seeing us in the top 8, because it is a strong sign we can at least get a 2-seed. 1-seeds are nice for marketing, but are really no different from 2-seeds (with the lone exception being the first round opponent tends to be a worse).
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Easiest way to hush a Sparty this morning...||
Any time they claim that they are "22 points" better than us, remind them that they just lost to a team that lost to Penn State, which is pretty humiliating for them. Also, tell them how soft they are for giving up so many points in the paint.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||If that were to happen...||
Geez, we might double up.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||This year is too chaotic for me to disagree||
This may be the year a team can lose by 23 and win it all (us) due to the parity around the country, so who am I to argue that a team who has lost 8 of its last 11 will make the Elite 8. If they can get back to form, they have a shot.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Turnovers||
If the Gophers can cut down on the turnovers, they are still a dangerous team. That being said, Indiana is not the team to remedy that malady against.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Never mind, I see you had OSU at 13-5||
That would make OSU the breaker, and they still play Sparty in Columbus and IU in Bloomington.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Very thorough, well done||
If these projections hold, wouldn't that make UM the three seed (like last year)? The tiebreaker goes to the record against the next highest rank (Wisky). We can't win that...damn, that half court shot keeps right on taking, doesn't it? I hate Wisconsin.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Well, one can only point to Wisconsin itself as evidence...||
That the NCAA Tournament officiating is a horrific wake-up call to Big Ten teams that thrive on the Big Ten officiating. How many Final Fours has Wisconsin been to under Ryan? How many times have they finished near the top of the standings?
|15 weeks 21 hours ago||Nice to see Zeller have a complete brain fart||
Karma for his game against us.
|16 weeks 7 hours ago||Bravo to you with the AD reference||
If I could upvote, I would.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Wait a second!||
Mike Valenti dared callers yesterday when he said Michigan is not elite like OSU! He said no recruiting service has Michigan #1, and then he rattled off Rivals, 247 and ESPN. Me thinks he cherry picked his recruiting services...or he was just being a dingbat...or both.
Sometimes I wish there was an intelligent Michigan caller on that station that also yells back at him whenever he goes off on one of his Bill O'Reilly-type bullying tirades. I'd do it, if I actually listened to the show in more than bits and pieces (because that is all I can stomach until the WTKA goes live again).
|19 weeks 5 days ago||True, from an expert and casual fan perspective||
I guess it's more the Internet trolls who hang onto that myth.
