Big resume builder. Assuming we don't lose to Nebraska, this probably gets us off the bubble and out of one of those First Four games.

Now you're playing for seeding. Finish strong.

This year especially I'm not sure there's much difference between 7-10 seeds.  If we could get our KenPom seed, which would be a six after today I'm guessing, then it'd be a big deal.

Really annoyed we got so fucked in Minneapolis because if we get that game we're in good shape for a double bye in the BTT.

Weve been off the bubble for a couple of weeks now. We've won 5/6, lost to an ascending Minn. team via Teddy V and missed free throws, BUT OUR SENIORS ARE KICKING ASS AND TAKING NAMES. And the rest of the team is following them.

 

Gents and ladies, we have made the turn. This team is good.  Coming along nicely thank you very much!!

Go Blue!

There is no bandwagon. Check the postgame threads. I've supported this team day in and day out. That never waivered.

I didn't start the Fire Beilein threads (multiple) and never was on that bandwagon (however I routinely said that I couldn't blame anyone).

That does not mean we were a good team. We weren't. Now we're playing a heck of a lot better and it's not just a game or 3.

I was saying consistency back in early January when people were starting the "what do we need of do to get into the tournament?" threads.

We were always capable of beating Wisconsin or Purdue. That was NEVER the issue. The issue was stringing together multiple games of high play. Not that flash in the pan hot shooting game and then lose to bottom 3rd B1G teams.

We've proven that we've turned the corner.

I was so nervous at the end of that game and then Walton made that three and I knew it was over because I just KNEW Derrick was not going to let the team lose, great shot by a guy playing awesome basketball right now!
