  • FYI since 2011

    9-7 UM

    Yes go back a few more and you win more if you want to look at that but don't forget 3 in a row the last 3.

    Wow 9-7. Bragging rights

  • Given the talent disparity, 10-8 is nothing to be proud about.

    We also started that 4-0 when they literally had no talent and Beilein was just fixing their program. Since then, Beilein is 9-7 overall. He's 5-3 when it's ranked vs. ranked, all against top-10 Izzo teams. We're 1-5 against ranked Beilein teams outside of Breslin. It's... not great.

  • If we end up in Detroit, do we even care that we lost this game?

    No, but it won't matter because we won't be there. Michigan might be though.

  • I didn’t blame weather or refs. We have 2 lotto picks, Wagner Might play in NBA. We have more talent. They are just a bad match up for us.

  • I hope the freshman guards coming in know how to shut down dribble penetration...would be nice to see, esp if we lose our rim protector


    Nope....don't get your hopes up.

    I am sure the team that drafts Jackson can’t wait for him to jack up 3 pointers.

    Ok well then none of UMs wins against MSU under Muddy, JLS or BW count either then. Also Izzos first five games against UM don't count either

    Stupid logic

    I'm not saying it's clear cut one way or another. He's had our number recently. Overall Izzo's had an edge but I agree with TPain that it's hard to get excited about that, because it seems like we've had more talent most of the time. We've beaten a lot of bad Beilein teams, especially the early ones. We haven't beaten a lot of Beilein's good ones. None of that changes anything about Izzo absolutely dominating them between '98-'08.

  • Last 3 losses to UM have been by a combined 50 points.

  • A word ends in an “s” so you use an apostrophe.

    Apostrophe's

  • There was some scum dickwad behind the basket in the second half waving a giant picture of Nassar's face every time one of our players took free throws.

    Wow

    They need to clean their own house especially when it comes to the doctors at UM hospital having child porn on their computers.

  • MSU fell in love with the jump shot. They have so much athleticism and size they completely waste.

  • Nobody on this team has stepped and taken on a leadership role. Bridges is an outstanding athlete but he has underperformed. The team will win two games at most and then out.

    Piss off. No one can determine this team’s destiny except them

    Yep, our first 5 possessions of the second half were all jump shots. We got exactly 1 offensive rebound and that led to a score. They waited way too long to try to go inside again.

    And Ward's biggest problem is that he gets easily flustered when a call doesn't go his way and then is worthless. If Ward is engaged early and is getting baskets or at least going to the line then he's great. Jackson gets easily flustered in the paint with contact and then basically stays on the perimeter. He needs to be a little stronger.

    The refs let Wagner and Teske get away with a lot of body contact and let the digging guards rake too but at this point in the season, Ward just needs to shut up and power through it.

  • He might have also been frustrated at the number of possessions in which he had good position on the block and no entry pass came.

    You're writing Bridge's college biography, right?

  • The problem is that despite amazing talent, this team just can't make shots consistently. They get 2 weeks off and a chance to hit the reset button. They could coome out world beaters or "we got our ass kicked by Michigan again."

  • Scum shot 23 more free throws than us.

  • They don't depend on the three. Did you happen to notice their defense No. 6 in the nation before todays game?

  • Really, show some class. How would you like people talking about your kid like that if in fact he had enough talent to play in the BIGTEN. Totally uncalled for. It is a fucking game!!!!!!!!

    Hopefully they play well. I want all of the BIGTEN to do as well as possible.

  • So, kudos for B---, insults for Vahg-Ner?

    And how is that? Proud to play for his university just like the kids on your team?
