And just the end:

Forget something guy? /Thorin.

Watch it again. Then re-read the texts from your Sparty brother/friend where he blames Appling for everything. Then watch it again.

will the wait be for Ace to make OFAAT this week?  Any chance that will go up later today? I wish I had any sort of tech savvy whatsoever to make those myself.

Also, meta-ish question, any plans to start using Vine for longer highlight clips instead of gifs?

but I thought the way it works is you could create the vids with it and it gets linked to a link that can be viewed from anywhere? That was what it sounded like from what I read about it online, but I really am not tech savvy enough to know for sure sorry.  maybe another mgouser can shed some light?

As to Ace - Feel Better soon!

Nothing Appling could really do on the second turnover. He gets trapped and whoever is in the corner never moves. If he comes back to the ball maybe they have a chance.

but the last minute of the game showed the difference between players playing and coaches coaching players. in the last minute, msu had a 2 on 1 with levert backpeddling and they stopped to take a TO and talk it over. appling instead of setting up the offense from the center of the court has to come over to listen to izzo and to get back to the middle of the court, has to turn his back to the sideline and burke allowing his pocket to get picked. the last play, there was plenty of time, but player's instincts get burke into a passing lane.

i didn't see anything during the game, but i hope there is some sort of izzo face gif after this, since it happened right in his face.

Fun fact, if Ohio wins @Indiana (very tall task, I know) then there's a very real possibility we split the conference 4 ways.  This has only happened once, in 1926 when Indiana, Michigan, Iowa, and Purdue shared the regular season title.

Your (potential) 2012-2013 Big Ten Champions:
Indiana, Michigan, Ohio State, winner of Michigan State/Wisconsin

This would require (in order of significance):

  1. Ohio beats Indiana at Assembly Hall
  2. Michigan beats Indiana at Crisler
  3. Ohio State beats Illinois at ValueCity
  4. Winner of MSU/Wisconsin beats Northwestern/Penn State (respectively)

This is a very real possibility, with the two biggest hurdles definitely being Ohio @Indiana and then beating Indiana at Crisler.  I'm not sure we can get Indiana to lose two in a row, but hey, we needed Sparty to do it last year and they came through, so maybe?

To me, even if we don't win the big 10 i will be ok with finishing with a top 4 seed in the BTT in order to get a bye and hopefully managing to play our way into a 2 seed into the overall tourney with gonzaga being the 1 (that's my ideal scenario) in our bracket. I'm not sure what needs to happen in the last few games for that to occur.
