This is pretty much the only nickname for UM that doesn't make me cringe. I think damn near all others are petty and childish. That is also why I enjoy UM fans calling us "Ohio."

Steve is funny from time to time but I love the fact that his team loses at least 2 games and goes to a Capital One-esque bowl each year.

So the M Man alias count is up to 1 so far...

It was clearly a Heavyweights reference..

Not necessarily true. Just because the B1G is a strong conference does not mean it gives you all of the experience you need. Teams in conference usually play each other 2 times a year with a chance to play a third time in the B1G tourney. They are extremely familiar with each other and very rarely are they surprised by each other- very different from what you see in post season play. You also play nearly all of those games in true home and away atmospheres- again, different from the post season. A lot of these non-con games are played at neutral sites (and I am ecstatic that OSU has started to join these sort of pre-season tourneys with good opponents). 

Also, I would be fine with 5 games against at least power five conference teams (or traditionally good mid-majors like Butler, VCU, Davidson, etc.). Ohio State hasn't done that since '07-'08. Meanwhile, every team in the top-10 this year scheduled at least 5 games against power-5 or quality mid-major teams except Nova and UVA who both had 4 such games.

I am not saying that scheduling two or three or four more games against quality teams will be the difference between making the Sweet 16 and winning it all. But, I do believe that there is much more value in playing tougher competition. And if that means we lose a few more games and it threatens Thad's 20 win streak, then so be it.

Saying x is more difficult than y is far from saying that y is easy. I think twenty wins a season is great but I, personally, would trade 6-7 wins against terrible competition for a chance to get 3-4 wins against elite talent. I believe it does much more for a team later on in the season.

Congrats, coach. Wouldn't mind you asking the AD to schedule a much tougher OOC schedule, though. Might make getting 20 wins more difficult but will pay off in the long run.

Tate and Russell are the only two who I think deserve to be on the court for 30+ minutes a game. KBD has been playing well as of late and I certainly don't mind getting him more minutes. I suppose you can put Scott and Thompson out there but both are extremely one-dimensional and both have a major propensity to disappear. Loving is talented but seems to play with an effort level similar to Amir Williams at times. Kam Williams can shoot except for when he can't- aka B1G play. I don't think you can afford to play Amir and Trey for more than 10 minutes combined, yet, Lee really hasn't been much better. 

All in all, I do not envy the position in which Thad finds himself. Hopefully, next year will be much better.

You left your van running all night in the garage with the garage door down? Hopefully your car is fine but you are lucky you didn't kill yourself or anyone else in the house.

I personally have a problem with the majority of Penn State fans (unless there is a silent majority somewhere) defending Joe Paterno, wanting to restore his wins/statues, bitching and moaning about the B1G not defending them when the Sandusky issue came out, whining about how B1G officials have screwed them out of countless victories, just off the top of my head. Pretty much the daily forum topics on Audibles.
