Stone - Xocoveza. Oddside - Hipster Brunch Who do you have winning tomorrow Michigan or Wisconsin? Las Vegas currently has Mich +1.

We will win tomorrow. Win the game. I've been drinking land grant greenskeeper and rhinegeist molasic since 1. I'm rocked and ready for tomm

This is Michigan

I predict that I will drink a lot tonight to celebrate an M win. Then I predict I will continue to drink a lot tomorrow to celebrate a Big Ten Tournament Championship. Then I may take a few days off to rest for NCAA tournament in which I will continue to binge Wednesday through Sunday.

Wait, we're making drinking predictions right?

Good-Wisconsin is a terrible matchup for Michigan. They basically play the style of basketball that the anti-Beilein people all accuse Michigan of playing -- lull-you-to-sleep, then jack-up-a-ridiculous-three with 1 second left on the shot clock; the difference is, they also grab a few rebounds offensively. Bronson Koenig seems healed and Trice isn't likely to go 2 for 15 again. Then, they couple this with a frustrating, gnat-like defense that is designed to compensate for their lack of athleticism.

Meanwhile, Michigan has played an extra game, plus an extra five minutes, plus two physical opponents, plus, oh by the way, the bumps and bruises from their near-tragic accident are likely to be really kicking in about now. Furthermore, they don't have the extra level of motivating disrespekt that they would have had against Northwestern (did I just write that?)

I wouldn't be surprised if Michigan suffers the most lopsided loss of its season tomorrow.

But, you'd have to be insane to bet against Michigan after all they've been through this week. First to 60 wins; I'll take Michigan 61, Wisconsin 55.

Appreciate people supporting my friends bar in oddside..my best friend started it with our other friend from HS. They both went to msu though lol..

Hard to believe how fast they have grown. Seems like yesterday sitting in the garage being the taste tester for all of their original first beers and helping put together tables and doing graphic work.

Earlier was Founders Backwoods Bastard, Dogfish 90 minute, and Griffin Claw Norm's Raggedy Ass IPA (I'm on the started at 1 team). 

Michigan by roughly one million tomorrow. Maybe 2. We hot.

a cab.  just took burgers off the grill, our homegrown black angus.  i am quite biased as they are my favorites.  going to put one on a piece of sourdough toast, dress it up a little.   

michigan is going to hit the wall tomorrow in regards to energy with all that's been going on, and play a tough and rested wisconsin team.  however, michigan is probably the last team in the country that anybody wants to play right now.  i think it'll be a dog fight, decided by 4 or fewer points.  

EDIT:  don't forget the time change tonight

Right now, I am at home - finally - enjoying a Guinness and the thought that in about 10 hours, I will be right back at work again. Well, maybe not so much that last part, but I do feel useful during these moments in my life, sometimes even more useful than I am here actually. 

I will go with Michigan in a close one - 69-66 or thereabouts. Would love to be right.

Was drinking Black Metal from Jester King... one of the grossest things I've ever tasted. I hate sours and for some reason they thought it was a good idea to make some strange sour imperial stout. Tasted like sour chocolate and coffee.


Partially my fault as I guess I didn't know this was Jester King's thing.


March 11th, 2017 at 9:45 PM ^

Coffee. Got some homebrewing goin on right now and need all my faculties. Maybe have a Jameson's later.

I don't have a great feeling about tomorrow, so that's good. I'm usually wrong.

I am on beer #4 out of my 6 pack of Founders Azacca IPA. Man i used to hate IPA's, always thought it tasted like what I imagine to be pinecones, but once I've had it for a while, it just gets so good! Win the game tomorrow!!! GO BLUE!

Artes del Sur - Malbec

I don't know if we can eclipse 80 points against Wisconsin, and with all the team's endured, I think Wisconsin will be able to go 2 full halves and win 72-66. Neg away for wine and/or predicting a loss.


March 11th, 2017 at 10:42 PM ^

Jack and coke hard tonight because I have to root for ND with my neighbor. Those unis- ugh. Anyway I think we hit a wall tomorrow too- hope not, but those guys have to be exhausted. 70-62 bad guys.

MMB 82

at a local touristy spot. At this point, I feel we are playing with Casino Money and am not worried about tomorrow's game. Make it close and let some luck go our way!

I expect an ugly, low-scoring game with a lot of bricks.  Wisconsin will be more tired than they were today and we're obviously a bit low in the tank.  We've gotten used to scrapping it out this BTT, though, and I think we win a classically BIG TENNNNNNNN game, 58-53.
