it all comes down to sparty, imo.  beat them, then i think we are 9-9,  probably tied with sparty, psu and illini.  i think the tourney takes two of those.

given that we would be 2-0 against both sparty and psu.  committee has to take us over them.  but an extra win in the tourney would guarantee it.

Sure would help if Texas would stop losing to bubble teams every weekend....Now lets hope for a massive Duke blowout tonight against Va Tech. And also Memphis getting blown out at UTEP helps us greatly from earlier today! Great win today and beat Sparty!

This team had every reason to bury their heads in the sand after that last heartbreaker and they came out and played their butts off. They are young but showed great maturity to bounce back like this. Now let's beat State!

weird how a guy can turn a mediocre to poor performance into a great one in a matter of a few seconds.  and being at the end of the game magnifies it.  i feel really good for the kid.  he must felt awful after the last game, where he was a complete non-factor.

For the pure entertainment value I just took a glance at the Michigan vs. Minn. thread over at RCMB.  One guy over there had the balls to say that Michigan gets away with more pushing and shoving fouls than any team he's seen.  What a delusional idiot!  MSU basically plays football on the hardwood every single year.  They get away with their style of play.

Zack's late 3 pointer won this game. Could the announcers have been any more disappointed with the outcome of the game? Jackson looked like he was gonna cry during Coach B's post game interview.

I guess for the first time ever, I am going to have to hope that MSU takes out Purdue. That sucks. Great road win. Can't wait to see Morris as a junior next year. Damn.

Nope. We need msu to win. Makes them 10-8. Illinois 9-9 with Illinois getting the edge in head to head. Then we get 11seed in first round and Wisconsin the 3seed in the second. Otherwise we jump to the 4 or 5 spot and have to play in the 4vs 5 spot then face #1 osu on Saturday. We need 2 wins and msu to make it.

Winning the next two games could very well do it. This is contingent on the first BTT game being the 4-5 game. Don't think beating a 6-11 seeded team does much. Winning two more games will get the overall record to 20-13 at least. The Bubble is weak this year and we will have a good chance winning the next two games. Of course wining more would be preferable but still a long road.

Excellent win by a resilient team. I really appreciate their effort week in and week out. Go Blue.

Take it for what it is but I was watching the BTN's one-on-one feature with Darius Morris and he said that "We'll all be back next year". I thought this was interesting because people had been saying he was thinking about entering the draft.

Great game, Michigan!  I'm thankful for all the work these guys put in to make themselves a better team and our school proud. 

Let's get ready to sweep MSU (take the "state championship" by beating Oakland and Little Brother).  Keep workin to keep the NCAA dream run alive.  Recognize that MSU will come into Crisler scrapping and fouling all game long b/c it's desperate. 

We gotta fill up Crisler Arena and limit the tickets that go to any MSU fans. 

Tremendous effort and resilience ever since that loss to the Gophers earlier this season.

Hey, I was at the game, and people have been telling me that I got about ten seconds of face time in the second half.  Anybody got a torrent for the game?
