PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
I'm gonna go with Sparty by a score of 68-64. What are your guys' predictions?
Sparty by 10, 73 - 63.

WE ON's 65
YOU OFF's 59
Michigan got flat out embarrassed on national TV and if they want to rectify what is left of their season, they need to win today to turn it around. They remind me of the Lakers a lot; all offense with really good players but no defense. If they are playing soft today on the inside, not rebounding and blocking out look for this game to go to the Spartans. Losing this game would doom for their psyche and the rest of their season. Michigan needs to learn how to play with the same vim their rivals play with or they will never be able to match MSU hatred on the court. If Michigan loses this game, I believe their season is done for. They'll be bounced early in the BTT and NCAAT which would suck since I was counting on them to get to the sweet 16 to bolster the Big Ten image come tournament time.
Michigan is vulnerable right now after losing to PSU and getting destroyed by MSU. Look for Izzo to deliver a death punch to UM mental state only for the refs to hand Michigan the game.
Insert witty remark
Sparty by 8, 71-63
Michigan hasn't been able to handle players like Payne who are big and possess an offensive game. I think he is the X factor in todays game. If Michigan can keep him off the glass and limit his scoring, they have a much greater chance at winning. Stauskas needs to show up as well for UM to have a shot, he seems to disappear a bit in marquee games (see IU, OSU x2, Wisconsin) although he did okay against MSU the first time. He has to limit his turnovers
Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite
If Sparty wins, does that mean that Michigan beats themselves?
I didn't know it was that kind of game.
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
Missed the joke. I'll give ya another try.
Hey Michigan, regardless of what happens in this MSU game today, we all know you're not as good as you think you are. I've got 2 words for ya: PENN STATE.
Well...Appling must have no confidence at this point. Poor guy.
So if Michigan wins this, who would be the 2 seed if the conference tournament started tomorrow? Wisconsin, MSU, ScUM, and OSU all have the same conference record
Why is Michigan State playing a team of Big Birds?
There are no road victories in the B1G.....

Well that ending was pretty bad on both sides. Some ugly turnovers, both teams blew it.
