Have at it.

I'm sick. Won't be posting for good while.

Fuck this shit. Make a free throw.

stupid free throws.  stupid not intentional foul. 

And It's March, so most of us in the North are tired of Snowflakes.  stupid snowflakes.

I hope Drake Harris was so sad that he's got it in his blood and he knows where his heart lies!

But the good news is that my friends and I are already planning which Football games to attend. UTL II, vs ohio, and away at NW.

Looking ahead to football season now.

Did anyone realize how long the ball sat on the rim at the end?  It's as if God was thinking "Hmm, who do I want to win" and the ball just sat on the rim for awhile.

They could have done things better, but Indiana could have done things better too.  This is a time to say, "Aw hell - we could have won," not "These guys suck."

OSU and MSU ... GO DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

The rest of you whiners, come on now.  This game hurt a ton, but this team still lost by ONE, and we all know they could have / should have won, to the overall #1 or #2 in the country.  That's not the worst thing in the world, y'all.

Because they had yet another late game collapse is the reason for frustration. I think everyone is getting tired of them snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. If this was a one-off then you can lecture about perspective all you want, but it wasn't.

Of the games that hurt my heart and soul:

1- Weber timeout

2- loss to Duke 2 years ago in the Tournament

3- this freakin Indiana loss

Honestly we had it and lost it.. I don't blame the players, they were under too much pressure, it just happens. Lets just hope this happened at the right time, we still have a B10 tourney to try to win and a NCAA tournament out there. I'm hoping this teaches us humility and gives us a push to win both of those.

On the bright side, OSU and MSU just lost the B10 championship :).

Go Blue..

Kinda glad I missed the last few miutes. I think I would have had an aneurysm from missed front ends on 1 and 1s and another no call intentional at the end of a game.

We open with Penn State. The team that beat us for their first win of 2013... in February. It's because we lost to them the first time that today even mattered. We choked there and choked here. I'm so mad... lets just sit out the stupid conference tournament, take our seed at the dance and just go back to beating everyone who's not in the Big Ten.

Perspective: my 6 yr old boy said, 'They played good Dad. It was a good close game. We'll win next time.'

I watched the rim job again. So close. Now I'm in bed decompressing.

Perspective: I haz none.

Tough loss to take, but UM showed me 2 things today that I really like

1. They showed an aggressiveness (as a team, not just 1 or 2 players) that I hadn't seen since we were 20-1. There was more attacking and less standing around, waiting for someone else to do something.

2. A defensive intensity that I hadn't seen on a team-wide level at all this year.

Others may disagree, but this game actually gave me more confidence for our NCAA Tournament chances.

This is what I came away with.

Yeah, that last minute sucked.  The free throws sucked.  The loss sucked.  No B1G Championship.  That all sucks.

But my god that was the toughest I've seen Michigan play all year.  Were they perfect?  No.  Did they miss bunnies throughout the game? Yes.  Did they get outrebounded by 20? Yes.

And after all of that we still controlled most of the game and it came down to a few free throws that our usually good shooters just missed. 


Buck up and realize that we don't all of a sudden suck because we lost by 1 to Indiana.
