500 for the 1st half, so I thought I'd start a second one.

...We need Nik to step his game up defensively because we need his shooting right now.

Craft wants NO part of Burke and he needs someone to kick to.

I might try Spike-Burke-Stauskas-Horford-Morgan...and I'd go zone, because that lineup definitely can't defend man-to-man.

Well, we now know we are a finesse team. Nobody is driving hard to the bucket. If Burke isn't getting penetration, we aren't winning. Aaron Craft owns him in this game ... hard to say, hard to watch.

So, I like that we're starting to generate turnovers.  It starts with at least an opportunity for transition game, earlier that was all Ohio State, so, that's a good start.  Left about 4-6 points on the court though, instead of being down by 4 we're down by 11.  Not good.

It's amazing that our most important players decide to have a poor game today. I mean, why? What is it with Ohio? Why can't we beat them consistently anymore? This year we clearly have the better team, but they're dominating us. I simply don't understand it. When Ohio has the better team, they beat us, which is what the better team is supposed to do. M just sucks when they play Ohio. I am sick of this shit.

Your man wants to get in your grill...ATTACK the basket.

This game is so simple, if Ohio wants to play like this, go right at them.

When they back off, you adjust and go back to your game.

Thomas, according to Kellogg, is the primary guy. Primary, because he is a one-manned offensive machine. The only viable threat for points. Just keep him contained.
