Michigan falls short to purdue on senior night, 60-49.

The seniors have nothing to be ashamed of. They leave on a 3 game win streak against ohio, something that hasn't been done in program history.

Sure it's not as fast and athletic as the Mens game, but I enjoy watching Michigan play and try to build the program.

The program has not had very much success in it's entire history, would love to see them raise a banner in Crisler someday.

Put it this way, to me it's like Womens Hockey. Love Hockey, there's no checking allowed in Womens but I still enjoy watching Hockey.

I really don't like the changes no-check makes to the women's game. When you have to referee a women's bantam or midget/HS game, they get very creative in ways to make up for not being able to hit, usually with their sticks, and it's a pain in the ass to call. I do think there should be a womens check division, but I honestly can't answer whether or not there would be interest in it, especially since up until college the mens game is technically co-ed.

That being said, I love watching the WBB team because Borseth is a friend/pretty good acquaintance of my aunt and uncle, so it's cool to see him coach.

Anyway, I'm watching the Wings game in an hour; should I stay here or go out to the bar?

Here, pro:

  • TV is plenty big
  • Can do my own thing on my computer and whatnot

Here, con:

  • Girlfriend is gone for the weekend, roommate works tonight so nobody here
  • Out of beer, would need to restock

Bar, pro:

  • Quarter beers

Bar, con:

  • Hate going alone
  • Have to deal with bartender taking 34587 hours to get the game on the TV

Thoughts?

Yea, it's a bit of a weird situation at the moment. I'm on a different campus for spring/summer for an internship oppertunity that popped up near my girlfriend's school. It's nice to be around her, but I don't have a ton of friends here at the moment, and most of the ones I do have are on her softball team, so it sucks when they leave.

As for the dilemma tonight, I think one of her roommates might come over; she's annoying but at least she's a Wings fan.

all game but in the end Purdue is just the better team. Well at least the seniors can still hang their hats on a tournament bid which I dont think any seniors even 5th year have done before. Just finish the season strong and make some noise in March.

This is familiar, unable to win down the stretch. So frustrating.

For three games straight Borseth lets struggling players get extended minutes down the stretch. Kate Thompson was getting blown by on defense and finished with no points. I mean I'm not a coach but these decisions are frustrating and curious.

The seniors have set the foundation for the program. They also leave Michigan having beat ohio 3 straight times including beating them at Crisler this year, ending ohio's bid for a perfect season.

Certainly, nothing to be ashamed of.
