The announcers last night were just glowing about the Burke / Craft matchup. Saying something about being able to watch it everyday of their life or something.

It is refreshing to watch what real point guards look like though after watching our games.

We definitely should root for PSU over Purdue. Purdue is a 2 pt favorite.

Isn't Craft the "real" point guard who led his team to a convincing 19-point defeat against our guards not too long ago?

I know it's hard for some of you to pass up an opportunity to bash our players, but your comment seems a bit foolish considering they just played and our team won easily.

I dont see how stating we dont have a point guard is bashing the players? Im commenting on their position, that is nothing personal against their games. Is stating that Mike latulip is not a center bashing him? Tracy is not a "real" point guard, and if you think he is you didnt ever see him play in high school and havent watched the games this year. He is a combo guard, and was recruited as one. Webers recruiting incompetence is the only reason Tracy is forced into the PG slot.

You're right of course but it is still hard to make the argument right now that our guards are better than Craft or that our team is better than Ohio State. It seems that game was sort of an anomaly. Maybe by the end of the year it will prove out that it wasn't but Im not betting on it.

Burke is the real deal. Craft is a great on ball defender but definitely more turnover prone and not nearly on Burke's level. I think Michigan wins this one going away

He's also the "real" PG who was a large part of OSU playing in the final four last year

And those of you who scoffed when a poster said that Stauskas would be playing in the NBA someday, you'll probably be eating your words. He's already a better shooter, and more versatile, than Diebler was

Arkansas absolutely destroys #2 Florida, 80-69 (a larger deficit than the final score indicates).

Ohio State on top of Michigan by one at halftime, 31-30.

Miami still hasn't lost in the ACC, they're 9-0. The last AQ conference team to not have a conference loss.

And I don't know if I've ever seen a better on ball defender than Aaron Craft

Kid had a great freshman year, but last season vs. Florida he showed America what he was about. I don't think I've stop singing his praise since that game.

Only 18 fouls called in all of regulation? That doesn't sound like a modern B1G game!

The scary thing is that he may be the 4th best pro prospect on scUM's roster.

It's so sad when Craft is one of OSU's go-to scorers. Where's the beef?

Michigan has the worst songs ever for their end-of-game scenarios.

We've got all those air raid sirens, Will Ferrell making noise, zombie nation, etc.

What does the Maze n Blue play? The ENTIRE 4 minute song by Drake, "They Know, They Know, They Know." It isn't even a song that gets you pumped up. I'm sorry, but their song selections are turrible!

lol or maybe I just hate Michigan.
