Michigan vs. Ohio State Basketball Open Thread

I really wanted to put "vs. Akron State" or something, but thought it'd start another thread. Go Blue - this one is for the Big Ten Title race.

This morning I must admit I was not super optimistic about our chances in this game.  However, after the pure awesomeness of today, I must say I am feeling much more confident.  Today is our day! 

Or maybe its just the beer...

I don't know if I've been this excited about a basketball game in quite sometime.  Now I just hope this game holds up to the excitement I've let build up.  I'd love to win this game, obviously.  But to be perfectly honest I'm going to be content with a close game and a loss.  Michigan, in my eyes and for personal satisfaction, needs to go out and prove that they can in fact hang with the big boys; teams that are Elite 8/Final 4 worthy.  Please win though!  Go Blue.

Edit:  Eff all that.  I very much want Michigan to win tonight, and am going to be pissed the rest of the night, due to the aformentioned excitement I've let build up all week, if the good guys lose; especially in the case of a close game.

You all seem welcoming enough, however.

Nice start for M.

Jay Bilas has some profound comments: apparently you can't turn the ball over when on the road.  I'm sure that it's possible to do so; but I'm not sure it's a good idea even if you're at home.
