Michigan will do better and they will win a boring game.

Nobody is getting up to play PSU, including Michigan.

They still have a hangover, no big deal.

We have another long boring week of waiting to see Michigan play an actual team.

Think this is just a classic "we just went through a hellish gauntlet of games and psu is supposedly terrible so we'll sleep to a close victory" type games. I admit that size is killing us and will potentially be an early tourney loss issue (despite the tourney being a guard-fest) but we did just finish a stretch of conference games unlike any I've ever seen. Freshman need to get their strength and confidence back, too. Silver lining? The B10 is so good this year that the first couple rounds of the tourney, IF READY, should feel easy to this team regardless of seed.

They just look lazy today for the most part. All of these fouls and several of them have been really unnecessary. It's tough to watch this team get progressively worse over the last few weeks.

Yea.  It has to be.  The thread last week, I think, was a good discussion on the "Charge" call now-a-days.  I personally think it's ruined the game in ways.  But to be out there playing and figuring out how a referee will call a certain "play" and to have it vary in consitency, has to be a very underestimated part of the game.

Edit: Especially for a freshman.  GRIII picks up a charge call before what would have been a good drive and dish made three by Vogrich.

To everyone who was talking mad shit about Stauskas earlier: 13 pts, 50% fg rate, 4 assists, and 1 rebound. Granted his defense hasn't been great, he is a big part of our narrow lead.
