If you're in the Breslin, be sure to chant loud enough so we can hear you on the t.v.!

It's almost like Belien forgot how to coach the past few weeks.  We have been more competitive against MSU with much less talented teams in the past.  Calm the guys down and find them ways to score some points.

I just don't understand? How do teams play so well offensively against us with field goal percentage as high as 65% Is our defense really that terribly suck?!

I hate Big10 refs. It isn't rational that a team 6 steals, 5 OREB and 3 blocks and only 4 fouls.  If you play like that you are going to foul more then your opponent.

We know how this ends. UM will make a 12-2 run sometime in the second half, give everyone some hope and then lose by 8.  Enough seen.  Not championship quality defense - defense is all about effort and athleticism - only 4 players on the roster play defense (THJ, Burke, Morgan, McGrady) - the rest are just floaters.  There is a reason every quality team comes out and hits a high FG%.  Not "luck"

State cannot play basketball there whole thing is grab clutch and foul asuchh as the refs will let you get away with. Lets see how they play on the road in neutral courts and all that shit won't be allowed

Michigan is no longer playing on the road.  This team is not good enough to beat the top teams on the road, plain and simple.  No disrespect to MSU, very good team, but Michigan is not even playing close to their potential because they're so psyched out.

These guys are all young. Morgan has never been a true center, burke tries way to hard to make up for ... Well everything. Over rated? Isnt everyone in college hoops season?

Let's get'em in A2. I don't generally toss in the towel but it continues to appear that we are just to youthful in these big road games. Hope I'm wrong, Hail, Hail ...

"Let's get'em" in EL, tonight. If our guys would get their heads out of their asses and play to their potential we could still win this. It's all in their heads, is what's so goddamn frustrating. Ugh.
