I dont want to steal the thunder away from the Open Thread. But, the game is over, so here goes.
I think this is JB's best team so far at Michigan. At least so far, it sure does have that look. Quibble with me there if you want. But thats not the question I pose. Let me set it up a little more first, so bear with me.
The only team in contention is the 2008-09 that got into the tourney with a 9-9 mark in the B10. I think 9-9 in the Big 10 gets a tourney big this year as well. That team beat Purdue, Illinois and Minnesota at home, lost a tight one to OSU at home, beat Minny on the road and went a combined 5-2 vs IU, NW, Iowa and Penn State
My question. Is so that outlandish, out of the realm of possibility? Or is that doable?
Each time I watch this team play, I am beginning to think more and more that this team can indeed play .500 in the league and make the Big Dance. But, I had NIT expectations when the season began, so I come into this a bit more optimistic than most.
Feel free to disagree, but lets talk hoops. I'm wrong around 46 percent of the time anyway.
What a great weekend, by the way. A big winter sports weekend. What a fun time for the campus. What the Hell. Let's do it. It's the holidays. We should rock some more anyway. Go Blue! FYS! Let The Good Times Roll
