Way too much positivity

If I get banned, I get banned; am I the only realist when it comes to basketball? It’s all sunshine and rainbows — we sucked against a terrible team.  A win is NOT simply a win in this sport.  Please don’t let me be alone in this sentiment.  Carry on and Go Blue.

It was an unimpressive win against a bad opponent. No one is arguing otherwise. That said, it was still a comfortable win in the end and this team has absolutely beat up some very good competition. Did you see Nova almost take out Kansas today?

OP, I know you are obsessed with Michigan, but you should try cheering for them instead of devoting so much time and energy taking passive-aggressive shots at them on a Michigan message board. Trust me, cheering for Michigan is a lot of fun. I know it is a hard school to get into and all, but try not to be so bitter.

What!?! They have to win every basketball game by at least 25 points and go undefeated in football and only recruit Five star kids in both sports. If they’d just do that then we wouldn’t have to complain and could relax. Wait no we would have to do it for at least five years in a row. THEN it would be fun to be a Michigan fan. Is that too much to ask?!?! And you call yourself a fan Brutus

We’ve played mediocre against most of the inferior opponents. Against the quality ones, we’ve played good to great. It’s been like this all season.

It's nice to know that when our offense is absolutely putrid, our defense can keep us in it. The defense is still good. The offense will come. This is the sport where we have the schematic advantage on offense, to complement a battle-tested defense.

Oh, I don't think banning is appropriate.

Shunning, depantsing....those might be what will happen here, and rightly so. I mean, a lackluster win against a bad team - "PANIC! WE'RE DOOMED! WE'LL BE LUCKY TO BE A BUBBLE TEAM!". I hate people some days. No, most days. 

I can't wait for your thread after our first hoops loss, which will be the predictable "SEE, I TOLD YOU GUYS AND YOU WOULDN'T LISTEN" thread.

We beat UNC and Nova, also Purdue.  This team is good.  Teske and Iggy had bad nights, it happens, the amazing thing is that we still have three other players get over double digits and a bench guy get 8, I believe, this wasn't the norm the past few years and is awesome to watch.  You can either look at things with positivity and find good the bad, or look at things in negativity and find bad in the good.  You can make that choice.
