i don't wanna hear about a hang over from a loss that was 4 days ago.. plus your playing a team that beat you and caused you to drop to a 5th seed.  if your not ready to play then maybe you should be in ann arbor at class

Bacari has a really cool/funny Twitter feed, but we have the worst big men in the history of "Top Ten" teams...

I hate to write 1213 negative posts on this thread, but good lord...

What is it about Penn St.?  Are they just Michigan's personal kryptonite this year, or do they just have a S___load of confidence from their games against us.

 

That or claims that the Indiana game has killed the teams mental make-up have just gained great weight,

or have we lately been playing to the other teams' level?  I know that sounds elitist, but we played well against IU on sunday....  A little frustrating...

This team seems to have peaked too early.  Let's face it, they probably just aren't as good as they played when they dismantled Northwestern and Iowa to open the B1G.  The freshman seem tired and lacksadaisical.  Hardaway still isn't consistent.  Bigs still an issue. 

If the team is hot, it can beat anyone.  But with no consistency from night to night, it's hard to see any run in the tourney.

I'm not basing it on Ws and Ls, I'm basing it on what I'm seeing from the team.  The Indiana game aside (UM played well), it's been a month since the team has played with any sort of rhythym.  Even in the MSU and OSU close wins at home, the team didn't look right. 

Hopefully getting out of conference will help the team.

I know this has been talked about nonstop on the board but can we play 2 bigs...it doesn't have to be for 30 minutes but c'mon! sit stauskas bring in morgan and Gr3 to the 3 instead of 4...makes sense to be and I bet our rebounding stats won't suck as much

Is it possible we're not playing much zone because we're not communicating well on D?  I just can't understand why we don't do it especially against crappy shooting teams like this.

We already can't rebound so what's the harm in zoning up?

All in favor of starting McGary and subbing in Morgan as a defensive replacement? I'm tired of the lackluster start to every........single..............gammmmmmme.
