#1 vs. #3, for an early lead in the Big Ten. Where would you rather be? Go Blue!

Oh well. Sucks that we had to lose but this in no way kills our B1G title hopes. Remember, Indiana has played the easiest schedule in the conference so far. All of their big games have been at home. They have yet to play a ranked team on the road. They have already played last place Penn State twice ad second to last place Nebraska twice. They still have to go to Minnesota, to OSU, to MSU and to Crisler. As long as we take care of business at home, we'll be in great shape.

Just because you won doesn't mean you get to rub it in like that. Basic sportsmanship says you don't do that (Michigan concedes at the end by not pursuing...therefore you don't pad stats and put another 2 points on the board. Or you do if you're a giant douche)...and I bet you it comes to bite Indiana in the ass for future matchups. Michigan won't forget that.

2 losses on the season and in both games, the moment seemed too big for the freshmen.  GRIII was a pure noshow tonight, but I expect him to grow from this game and I think our losses will do more to build our character than any of our 20 wins.

We shoot like we can and we win.  What happen to our 3 ball?  This is one game.  Would have been so sweet to win.  I so wanted to win.  Im not complaining.  I like this team a lot.

It's hard to be too mad about this.  Indiana played out of their minds.  I thought we played very well overall, but damn.  Indiana was crazy tonight.

Tough schedule ahead.  Go Blue!!!

complaining about because it impacted winning or losing, but it still a complete bush league move that deserves some criticism. All I have to say is I wouldn't mind somebody knocking him on his rear end if he goes to the basket in the rematch.

Anyways besides that Michigan played pretty poorly on both the offensive and defensive for much of the game. Forced some shots, missed alot of makeable shots, and allowed Indiana way too many open looks. On the positive I think this game tells you how talented this team is when they can play so poorly, and still hang around in the game.
