Once again, We control our own destiny

Let's not screw it up this time. Ohio came through for us at a really key time tonight. Beating IU won't be a cake walk on Sunday as Ohio pretty much outplayed them on the glass and in the paint and also played some very impressive defense.  We definitely need to show strength and aggression on the interior early against them Sunday and also need to establish ourselves early defensively.  Let's not forget Purdue, though, tomorrow... I think we all remember the last time we overlooked a Big Ten opponent. Either way, March is a new month... Let's keep it rolling. WE ON and GO BLUE!!!

Yes, but what does this do to the earlier MGOBLOG thread, "ESPN has Michigan in the PERFECT bracket"?  So long, perfect bracket.  We hardly knew you....

My suggestion for Bacari's pregame speech tonight...

"If you finish a game out of first after beating Sparty and Indiana because you blew it against Penn State AND Purdue, you'll take it to your fucking grave!"
 

Play like Michigan.  BEAT.  PURDUE.

Luckily, there is a tournment at the end of the season where everyone controls their own destiny.  Once you're on the main grid, it only takes six wins.

We're two wins from a conference title, folks.  Go Blue, Beat Purdue!

It is fitting that the Penn State loss is virtually meaningless.  I suppose if we had won, we could be playing for the conference outright, but a conference title is still a conference title.  It's (almost) like that loss never happened. 

Also, in a conference as tough as the Big Ten this year, it's only fitting we finish in a 4-way tie.

Oh the Penn State loss happened and we'll be feeling the repercussions of it once the seeds come out for the NCAA tourney.  Still, as low as we all were last week, it's awesome to suddenly be very much alive for the conference title hunt.

Beat.  Purdue.

I want this team to be back to back conference champs like everyone else, but sharing sucks, especially with your hated rivals. Nebraska '97 is one thing, sharing with Ohio and possibly Sparty is sickening.

So you'd rather lose one or both of our final two games to avoid sharing with them?

I know that's not what you meant, haha.  I agree that winning outright > sharing with anyone but OSU/MSU > sharing with combination of OSU/MSU > not winning one at all.
