I thought watching this would help with my "healing process", but it just made it worse.  I still cannot believe that last sequence and especially that Morgan's put-back didn't go down.  How can he sleep at night? I would replay that in my head every minute.  I feel for him and the team...

At least we get a chance to play again Thursday and I hope they are fired up with an angry attitude.

I feel better now.   It just wasn't in the cards yesterday.


What I like is that the BTT lines up perfectly for redemption:

1st round PSU

2nd Wiscy

3rd Indy

4th hopefully Bucky but MSU would be fine.



I think that we are going to win all four games and all is going to be forgiven.  We are a good team that has learned sme terrible lessons this year but the ball will bounce our way next weekend.

count on it.

You sir, are an optimistic man. Of the first 3 teams they are 1-4 and Sparty and Ohio were beaten by a combine 2 points. If they can't improve on boxing out, rebounding, and defense this is going to be a short tournament.

1) refs don't like calling flagrant fouls when Michigan players are flagrantly fouled.
2) free throws are very far from free when in relation to Michigan
3) Getting down early and blowing leads is an art Michigan has perfected
4) Interior defense is either not very high on the list of priorities or the Michigan coaches are really really bad.
5) Tom Crean behaves like a small child win or lose and is best to just ignore.

Your welcome... the end.

When we used that last time out, I had flashbacks of Chris Webber going through my head.  We lost the game, but at least it wasn't as heinous of a loss as that. #brightside

Plus, am I the only one that thinks the regular season Big 10 Champs is a ridiculous title?  It's like finishing the NFL season and the team with the most wins says, "We're regular season champions!"  Congratulations... nobody cares.  Go win the Big 10 tournament (playoffs) and then we'll talk about how you're champions.  Am I right?  There's the Big 10 tournament champions and then there's the NCAA tournament champions.  Everything else is bogus.

Did last year's B1G title mean nothing?

Regular season B1G champs is a culmination of a season's worth of effort. B1G tourney is one, hot weekend. It has some bearing on NCAA seeding and helps if you're a long-shot winner, but for higher eschelon teams the season resume is what the NCAA selection committee looks at.

People remember the season champion more than the tournament champion, partly because it is won over the course of a whole season, not ust 4 days.  You only have to defeat 3 or 4 teams to win the tournament.  It favors a team with depth and who gets hot at the right time.
