|7 weeks 2 days ago||Doubt this'd work||
Sounds like Bo Ryan has years of bullying and/or paying off the refs going into this. You don't just develop that kind of favoratism overnight. Something downright nasty's got to be going on behind the scene (& not in a good way). Blech.
Has to be exposed.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||This so||
pisses me off.
From the NCAA championship game (the call on an "all ball") to this... Whatever happened to the recommendation that refs be professionalized, paid, and thus be able to be held to account?
Also, why does that dreadful uniform design work for Wisky but not for us?
Hmph. Maybe colored laces would've helped.
But I doubt it...
just more proof of the plot to demoralize us outta our rightful claim to fame. ;o
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Calm down Mr. Gerbil!||
|7 weeks 3 days ago||If you're going up against Kenpom,||
even in sarcasm / jest (?), better make sure to cross your t's, dot your i's, and insert your apostrophe's.
Or it just sounds dumb.
Kenpom was wrong about this match up last time, iirc.
As were those who said Illinois had more to lose than we did yesterday. They may have been fighting for a NCAA bid. We were fighting to stay alive.
This one, now, is for drawing breath with dignity.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Ok, let's do this. Shock 'em. Dead.||
If Rutgers could do it, so can we.
E'erbody show up: Walton. Kam. Rahk. Dawkins. Doyle? Doyle. Irvin. Bielfeldt! Albrecht. I said: Albrecht!!! Heck, Donnal, Dakich, Lonergan... Wilson? Wilson playing? --y'all show up too. And LeVert, on the sidelines, also needed.
We almost knocked 'em off last time. Even *with* LeVert out.
Time to finish the job.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||hell yeah!||
Just saw the score. Seems I missed a helluva game.
An' I know I sound like a lame late comer, but swear to god, after reading Quinn's article on Chatman (linked to in the preview) I was like ok, corner's been turned; I think we got this game.
Still, am stunned -- just floored -- by the score...
Whoo-hoo! Post-season, here we come --
Cuz this is when we light up... maybe, jus' maybe, things'll finally start clickin' into place.
<* crossing fingers * >
Wisky's tomorrow?! Lord God help us...
but yes, it *cAN* be done.
Let's do it!
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Win. The. Game.||
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Glad you have a good sense about the game...||
...but I feel this is the kind of game we get lax about & end up blowing.
Plus remember both Doyle (likely) and Walton out.
As long as we remember they *did* beat Wisconsin -- they have it in them -- we *might* come out okay.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Yup!||
Build, no laurel-resting. Great effort, keep going.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||No.||
It's a loss.
But it sure as hell is not a failure.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||No.||
It's a loss.
But it sure as hell inots a failure.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||never. give. up.||
He had it at one point.
Just hasn't figured out how to transfer it yet to his current environment.
If Beilein saw something in him, it's there...
... I just hope together they can figure out how to get it to unfold. Would be great to get a little boost, for example, in the postseason (like McGary in 2012).
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Right,||
let's do it.
Focus on endurance, and Chatman's confidence.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Never||
say never. It ain't over yet. There were some dark moments when everyone was hating on Burke, remember? Right before the (first) Tourney. Some folks take longer...
... he might not ever bloom. No telling. But I do seriously think that folks giving up on him makes it almost certain he won't.
Still rooting... (this team as a whole, for example, under these conditions -- who woulda thunk it?).
|13 weeks 1 day ago||yeah,||
and didn't someone say at halftime that if the refs were calling the game halfway decent, we'd be up by... 10?
how long do we have to prepare for them at Crisler?
Vengeance -- *clean* vengeance. No need to stoop...
... and yeah, that's just how it goes. Gotta take it in stride. Kinda like, oh, injuries...
|13 weeks 1 day ago||true that||
'cept the part about Izzo being a good coach.
Effective, maaaybe. But good? nah.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Mmm...||
... blueberry pie.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Me too,||
'cept I didn't stay tuned in.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Thank you!||
nice avatar pic y'self...
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Nice.||
Good to hear.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||was working on my thesis||
which, in my superstitious little mind, helps the team.
(Sounds ridiculous, I know, but the corroborative evidence is kinda uncanny.)
Uh oh gotta go.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||This...||
is pure Michigan.
(something KenPom will never fully get).
|14 weeks 6 days ago||!||
and no one caught it?
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Yaaaay!!!||
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Just tuning in...||
... we're up by 2.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks for the info.||
also, tho, you could just cut & paste a link in...
|15 weeks 1 day ago||whoops||
a double post. 'pologies!
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Srsly...||
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Hmmm...||
...maybe we need to study the strategies of that strength & conditioning guy from Stanford we almost got for the football team...
|15 weeks 1 day ago||nuff said||
"this sucks more than everything that has ever sucked before"
get well Caris!
