UM losing this game would be utterly fantastic.

A friend of mine on Facebook has the greatest "rage statuses" that I've ever seen.  Whenever Michigan, the Red Wings, or the Packers lose, sheer gold is at hand.

Memo to Michigan: You have to play defense at least half-competently in order to win anything meaningful

missed a wide open dunk and it wasn't even close

Welp, that was a fleeting fantasy.

Burke is 1-5.
Edit: Since I posted this he's now 3-7

Penn State is suckin gso hard, I can't root for them.

PSU shooting 50%
UM shooting 39% (have taken 7 more shots than PSU)
PSU 0-3 , UM 4-12 from 3 point range

If PSU can keep this close going into halftime, there is hope.

oh man, I would love for PSU to shut down scUM in the tourney, that would be beautiful

Glad psu got close to make the second half interesting here at the United Center

Hardaway & Burke are a combined 5-17 (29%) with 16 points (3 came from free throws).

LadyBuck's picture

How was that a foul against Penn Sate?

Penn State is so ugly, but somehow they're managing to keep up.  This is a fun game to watch.

I wish I was watching this game. PSU just needs to keep it close so they are still 'their' in the last few minutes. I really hope they pull this out.

tennbuckeye19's picture

Um beginning to take over, ever so slightly.

LadyBuck's picture

God, this wouldn't even be a game if scUM could just defend. Come on Penn State!

LadyBuck's picture

God, this game should not be this close.

dubjayfootball90's picture

damn, go out for a quick deusky from my stupid little cubicle and scUM up by fourteen. terrible

tennbuckeye19's picture

Remember back when this game was close? That was awesome.

LadyBuck's picture

Well, that was fun while it lasted.

I'm not sure what to think about the Wisky-UM game tomorrow. They only met once in the regular season and the game was in Madison. Wisky won the game by 3 in OT.

Likewise. I'm struggling to think of who I want to even win in that game. Michigan losing is always fun, but man, the hate for Bo Ryan is so strong.

LadyBuck's picture

I don't know either. The question is tempo and who will get the most turnovers. Who knows.

If TSUN plays like they did for most of today, Wisconsin will win tomorrow.  If we go off of their only regular season meeting, in Madison where Wisconsin won in OT by 3 after forcing OT via a miracle near-half court shot at the buzzer tied the game, then TSUN should win. 
Who I want to win is another damned mystery.  On the one hand, anytime TSUN loses, it's great.  But then again, I want another crack at them in the tourney title game.  OSU beat them at home and should've beaten them up in the whore.  I would never be upset with a Wisconsin loss, though I have a feeling Indiana would take care of that on Saturday.

Screw them both.  They don't want to play Craft.
