Hard not to stab your eyes out with a spork after watching that display.

When we were 2-7 it was madness to suggest that we'd be 7-7. I'll take it anyway we can get it.

It is a win. Ugly, but a win. All the way back to 0.500 in conference. Big congrats to the team for that.

....if the fouls ever stop, and the game ends.

This was horrible to watch, but I love that we're at 20 wins. At 15-8, I didn't see 20-8 at all.

Nothing wrong with an upward trend. It's amazing we managed to score 64 points in that mess of a game.

I'm with Dayton. So happy to make it back to .500. Will never think about this game again, other than it was a W.

Hard not to track the fouls rather than the score.

The loss against NW at home was easier to watch.

Considering some of our past games against PSU, this one was a gem. Unbelievable number of fouls called, and too many missed FTs from a couple of our guys--but they stayed with it as PSU kept pushing too come back.

Let's go beat scUM!!
