02/19/2019 - 3:23pm After all the players we've…

After all the players we've had transfer to CMU, it's about damn time they return the favor! 

02/19/2019 - 12:41pm That's not an accurate…

That's not an accurate comparison to say that we would lose if we lost our two best players vs them losing their two best players. They have five freshman who were in the top 30 and 4 in the top 15 of their recruiting class. Even without Jones and Reddish, they still had number one recruit RJ Barrett and projected number one pick Zion on the floor. If you can't beat Syracuse at home with those two players alone, you're not managing your players well at all

02/19/2019 - 11:18am Duke also loss at home to…

Duke also lost at home to Syracuse. They're not invincible nor are they the "best college basketball team in the last thirty years" that the media keeps trying to sell us

02/19/2019 - 11:03am Don't forget Kentucky. I…

Don't forget Kentucky. I know they just beat Tennessee, but they were top 7 before then with their only wins being UNC at home and the worst Kansas team in the last twenty years. Not to mention losses to Seton Hall and Alabama. But they still might get a 1 seed?? Absurd

02/19/2019 - 10:50am Uh, we lost to Penn State. I…

Uh, we lost to Penn State. I'm frankly very happy we didn't get moved down further. Also Sparty lost Ward, but maybe not for the whole year and they had just won at Wisconsin, so I don't really get the complaints about the rankings.

Tennessee is weird because they were a media darling for most of the season despite a mostly lax schedule, but one road loss to a top 5 team? 4 spot drop. That's pretty harsh.

Also this is your weekly PSA that Gonzaga shouldn't even be considered for rankings because they play one month of meaningful nonconference basketball and then get the rest of the regular season off to practice against tiny private schools in the pacific northwest. Wack.

02/18/2019 - 8:44pm I wish this damn kid would…

I wish this damn kid would just make up his mind.

He was an excellent cornerback for Iowa and had that incredible game against OSU two years ago with an unbelievable interception and ended up getting drafted in the second round of the NFL draft. Then, shocking everyone, he decided to go back to high school to be the number one basketball prospect in the country, eventually signing with Kansas over Sparty (take THAT!). His unbelievable risk paid off, and he became a lottery pick for the Suns. Less than a year later, in an even more shocking turn of events, he decided to quit basketball and become Fred Jackson's son (how this is even legal, I don't know). Naturally, being the progeny of Fred Jackson means you have to go back to playing football, so he returned to the gridiron, but this time at quarterback for Virginia Tech. And NOW he's transferring to Maryland??? Frankly, I don't see how the NCAA can allow a kid to be drafted twice in two different sports in different years and then allow the kid to make his THIRD stint in college. Clearly he's a legendary versatile athlete, but indecisive as all hell.

02/18/2019 - 2:17pm Unfortunately they've…

Unfortunately they've actually developed some options outside of Edwards. Cline has been pretty good and Williams has been a huge boost. I still think we'd beat them head to head again, but they're a legit top four big ten team that might win the conference thanks to their schedule

02/18/2019 - 1:05pm I would love to play Houston…

I would love to play Houston again. Kelvin Sampson is a piece of shit coach and it would be nice for once to sit through a broadcast where they keep showing the highlight of OUR miracle win and not the other team's... 

02/18/2019 - 1:03pm If we can take care of…

If we can take care of business with maybe only one loss the rest of the way (ideally at MSU or at Maryland) and a BTT that gets us at least to the finals, we should have a really good case for a 1 seed. Losses at Iowa, Wisconsin, and PSU are better than Kentucky's losses to Alabama and Seton Hall (neutral floor). What would really help is to have Villanova and North Carolina win their conferences. A nonconference schedule that includes two dominant wins over the champions of two of the biggest conferences would do wonders for our resume. I usually avoid the UNC Duke game like the plague, but we have a pretty strong rooting interest this year

02/18/2019 - 12:48pm I don't think we necessarily…

I don't think we necessarily need to sweep MSU to win the big ten, but we would have to sweep Maryland instead. I honestly like our chances better against a MSU team missing Ward, especially since we've had their number with their leading core. Winning at Maryland will be super tough with their two bigs and a shitty road whistle 

02/17/2019 - 8:37pm Welp now I'm sad again cause…

Welp now I'm sad again cause this is the first time I've realized that our O-line got whipped up all game even without the number one pick in the draft on the other team. And we couldn't even manage one measly sack.

I hope basketball season never ends

02/17/2019 - 3:01am Iowa absolutely does not…

Iowa absolutely does not have an easy schedule? Home game against Maryland on Tuesday and they still have to play at OSU, at Wisconsin, and at Nebraska. That's a very tough finish. I think it's a pretty big stretch to assume they'll win out and that we needed them to lose today to have a three game lead on them in the standings. 

02/16/2019 - 8:48pm This is the only right…

This is the only right answer. Besides just being happy to see Iowa lose because you hate the team, there's no reason you wouldn't want to see our three losses finish as high as possible in conference (outside of actually, you know, winning it)

02/16/2019 - 8:47pm You would think with all of…

You would think with all of the horribly unlucky experiences Michigan athletics has had in its existence that I would be more sympathetic to teams losing in such a fashion

Lol nope. It's funny when it doesn't happen to you

02/16/2019 - 8:19pm Kinda a thread jack based on…

Kinda a thread jack based on this, but does Moe qualify as a Michigan basketball legend? I know everyone has their difference of opinions based on their era and I know there's a difference between "favorite" players and actual "legendary" players. 

Moe never won any player of the year awards or was even first team all Big Ten, I believe. But his performance against MSU last year (in both games) and his play in the Final Four against Loyola (first player with 20 points and 15 rebounds in the FF since Kareem I believe?) seems to put him on a pretty high pedestal. This of course is combined with all of the on and off court antics, which to be fair is a huge benefit of the social media age and wasn't available in prior generations and thus can't be used as criteria for guys like Glen Rice.

I don't know if Moe will ever be considered an all-time Michigan basketball great for his overall play on the court (guys like Cazzie, Trey, and Rice), but I think his personality and memorable performances puts him on almost every UM fan's favorites list with guys like Zack, Stu, and Walton, who were never the best players on the court but are definitely a huge part of Michigan basketball history. 

(P.S. Zavier might already be on this list with over a whole year left!)

02/15/2019 - 2:07pm I feel awful about this game…

I feel awful about this game. Unless we play perfectly clean defense and get the benefit of the whistle, I feel like we're going to get worked inside by their big men. Cowan is also particularly annoying which is usually part of the recipe for a Michigan loss. Hopeful this team can improve their offense at home, but if they still struggle, this might get ugly. Need Charles to stay aggressive and Poole to not settle for garbage shots that have been bogging the offense down all month

02/15/2019 - 11:42am Why would you say something…

Why would you say something so controversial yet so brave?

02/13/2019 - 10:48am So what you're saying is…

So what you're saying is that we're going to get destroyed in the rest of our games, but we're gonna beat Sparty twice by 20 points in each game?

I might weirdly be ok with that

02/13/2019 - 10:41am Dude, you're spending time…

Dude, you're spending time on a rival's message board to troll a 22-3 team after a loss. Evaluate the time you spend on this earth. If you're a Spartan, go watch your team get talked up to win the national title and then get bounced in the first weekend for the fourth year in a row. If you're a buckeye, try to get through the rest of basketball season and the off-season before osu gets back to the only sport they're competent in. And if you're a fan of any other big ten school, well, frankly, you're not relevant to anyone outside of your own head. 

02/13/2019 - 12:29am If this game had been at any…

If this game had been at any other team in the season, I wouldn't have been upset. But man, it would've been incredible to get the win tonight. We would have a game lead over MSU and a 1.5 game lead over Purdue. Now we have to win all of our home games (Maryland, MSU, Nebraska) and win at Minnesota and split between at Maryland and at MSU to likely get a share of the Big Ten. I don't see Purdue losing two more, so it was critical to win tonight so that we had some margin for error with our last two games. Instead, they now have to win two of their last three road games if they want any shot. Ugh, between this season and Jordan Morgan's missed layup, I'm gonna be sick if Beilein misses out on two big ten titles by the thinnest of margins 

02/12/2019 - 11:47pm Wait, so we've had him 3…

Wait, so we've had him 3 times in the last 8 games, and only 1 time in the two years before that?? Is that absurdly unlucky or did a bunch of refs get put out of jobs? TV Teddy was garbage, but at least he was randomly garbage so that you knew he wasn't going against your team, he was just incompetent

02/12/2019 - 11:39pm I mean it's a four game…

I mean it's a four game sample, and with the exception of the one win, they were all road games too. What's our record with him in the past, say, five years? Unless people think he only just recently developed a grudge against Michigan

Zero. Every fanbase complains about refs. We're not special.

Iowa doesn't let kids get raped and cover it up for decades. Fuck Penn State University forever and always

02/12/2019 - 10:40pm I pray to God the coaches…

I pray to God the coaches don't tell them stupid shit like that, because that's how you get your team to fucking quit on you. You can't control the refs, but 12 offensive rebounds given up??? That's all effort. That's the kinda effort I would expect from a team that's completely resigned into believing they can't win a game when they get calls against them. Pathetic mindset

02/12/2019 - 10:29pm Every other team in the…

Every other team in the country can recognize when a defense is playing balls to the wall. The solution? How about a fucking jump stop or a pump fake? We're so easy to defend when all we do is go up for pathetically soft layups. 

02/12/2019 - 10:28pm Can't get out of our own…

Can't get out of our own fucking way. Could've been number one in the country, blew a pathetic game at Wisconsin. Could've had a two game lead in the Big Ten and moved into the top 4 in the country and we LOSE TO LAST PLACE PENN STATE. AGAIN. Just fucking awful

02/12/2019 - 10:22pm Too predictable. Get the…

Too predictable. Get the margin within 4, Poole can't even draw iron on a horrible three. He's been an offensive liability the last month. Deficit is easily ballooned up to 9. Can't win with how awful this offense has been. Literally have to hold teams under 60 every game to do that

02/12/2019 - 9:18pm This looks like every single…

This looks like every single Michigan loss I've ever seen. Offense is dead and settling for threes that have no chance of going in. Other team is making everything OR getting offensive rebounds off their misses. Almost no shot of winning this game. And yes, I realize this is the first half but this is the same scenario as Wisconsin and Iowa were

02/12/2019 - 7:53pm Coach of the Year awards…

Coach of the Year awards just go to the most improved team, that's it.

That's why elite coaches never win it, because they are consistently excellent and don't have years that they have to "improve" from.

Not looking forward to Alabama's matchup against Lutheranism this fall. They have a score to settle

02/11/2019 - 8:56pm I know we would struggle…

I know we would struggle scoring on UVA with the way the team is playing right now, but holy crap UVA would get buried by our defense. Who on their team is putting up points against us? If you don't let them shoot 3's (which we don't let any team do) they have nobody that could consistently get inside the paint and score on Teske

02/11/2019 - 6:00pm Also, this will work out…

Also, this will work out like it always does. Michigan will be a seed or two lower than they should be, they'll be given less luxuries than MSU does (I'm sure they'll play in Columbus and we'll play in Buttfuck, Montana) and we'll still make the Final Four while MSU gets bounced in the first weekend. It's the natural order of things. Only thing we have to worry about is whether we're going to beat Gonzaga by 20 in the Elite Eight or Kentucky by 20 in the Elite Eight

02/11/2019 - 5:43pm Do nothing but flip the…

Do nothing but flip the schedules and results of MSU and Michigan. I guarantee you that they would be in the top 3 and we wouldn't even crack the top 15. What a joke

02/11/2019 - 4:03pm Baker is excellent only if…

Baker is excellent only if you compare him to other Browns quarterbacks. Dude isn't in the top half of NFL QB's 

Rodgers, Brees, Brady, Wentz, Foles, Stafford, Luck, Wilson, Newton, Ryan, Rivers, Mahomes, Trubisky, Roethlisberger, Goff, Watson, Cousins, Keenum. All better.

We also close with a lot of opportunities for big wins. If UNC goes 2-0 vs. Duke they could get a one seed. Conversely, if we go 2-0 over MSU, we have to be a lock for a 1

02/09/2019 - 7:05pm Thread jack, but how can…

Thread jack, but how can Kentucky possibly be put above us? Losses to Seton Hall and Alabama. Best wins are against UNC by 8, 8 point home win over the worst KU team in the last decade and a half, and a road win over Louisville (who has been all over the place this season). That doesn't even compare to a dismantling of UNC, a 27 road win at Nova, a blowout over Purdue, and a win over Wisconsin. They put Kentucky in the top 5 cause they don't know where else to put them, just like every year

The only mistake is that some players tested negative. Gotta take the vitamins the coaches give you, that's why you're not on the 2 deep!!!

OSU has Dobbins, they don't need any more running backs. Let's just tell all of their 5 star bench players that they can come to Michigan and start right away, you just have to complain you don't like your school. Let's really take this shit off the rails
