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

If you think Burke is playing good defense than you must not be watching the same team I am. There is not a player on that team playing good defense and there hasn't been all year. If he cannot lock down players in the Big Ten, how is he going to handle Westbrook in the NBA?

He is not ready for the NBA but like Manny and Darius he will go out too soon and sit the bench.

3 of the 4 losses were on the road against top-15 teams. The other came against Wisconsin on the road who 1) needed a prayer half court shot to win, 2) beat Indiana in Bloomington, and 3) are ridiculously good at protecting home court.

Indiana and MSU will come to A2 soon. As long as Mich holds serve, then it's not that much of an underachievement. I'm okay with going 3-3 against OSU, IU, and MSU. Too bad Wisconsin doesn't make a return trip.

I'd be frustrated if I was an EMU fan and this was the score.  Absolutely unacceptable for a Michigan team to perform at such a disgusting level.  I would seriously question any ranking that puts us in the top 10 next week.  This was not just a bad game, this was an exposure and exploitation of our weaknesses.

Margin of error is reduced to zero.  Let's return the favor when MSU visits Crisler, and take care of Indiana, and finish 14-4 in the conference tied at the top.

That was unacceptable. Losing to that shithole institution is unacceptable. Now we have to run the table win the big ten tourney and a national championship to erase this performance. I know, you might lose to them on bball once in a whole on the road, but what thefuck was that? Just get dragged? Now we can all listen to their annoying asses for 3 weeks. In embarrassed to wear Michigan stuff tomorrow I will anyway but I'm embarrassed for the first time since rich rid and for the second time ever.

Harford fuckin yawning in the middle of the court...wtf... Fuckin embarrasment...David Brandon better talk to Belin for this shitty humiliating performance against our rival.... Fuuuuck cant even sleep now soooooo pissed

I guarantee we loosing every fuckin game that matters from now on, including Pen St... This team has no hope and they showed it tonite and on top of that they got exposed.. So from now on other teams will just play defense against us

Did not expect that effort. Went to the game (first time in Breslin) and was ran out of there like the team was. I do have to ask to anyone else at the game... is it just me or can the State defense pretty much place their hands on any offensive player at anytime? I get it... we got our asses kicked. Watching at the game and seeing the plays develop away from the ball I am amazed at how much contact there is against MSU and when MSU had the ball how we tried to move our feet. It was like watching basketball on one end and something entirely different on the other.

I cannot stress enough that we still would not have won but damn... that is some physical basketball and I can't figure out how and why it is allowed. I mean hell, even on inbounds plays Mitch a few times was literally pushing two defenders that were making contact with him and holding him. Strange game and honestly it looked like the toughest stretch on the schedule finally caught up to a young team that had no gas in the tank.
