Sorry guys, I put a nice chunk of change on UM to guarantee they lost. Unfortunately I actually won this one.

I only watched the second half, but it seemed like Michigan was able to grab so many critical rebounds. Second chance points and easy fast break layups (off of a ridiculous turnover) are hard to overcome. They are incredibly deflating for a team trying to hang tough or come back.

Michigan has 1 loss in the conference and we have 3
just saying. if we have three losses and they have two, I dont care what the league office says , just as long as we beat them, as we will be ranked higher in the polls

Nope not Mark Smith, Alan Griffin! Wow: alan 16.7 per game, 8 boards, 2 steals and 2 blocks per game. No way he wouldve lost minutes to Granderson. He shooting high% from 3 , fiedl and nearly 80% from free throw line. Damn that hurts.
Griffin's been in the coach's doghouse a couple times for not playing defense.

Well we’re a #1 seed now at least. Rooting for Iowa is not something I’m going to enjoy doing

Well I'm convinced. Michigan is the truth.
Usually Livers and Wagner have many more points combined than today. It shows their depth. I have seen everyone of their games in the conference and only saw them play poorly once.

Michigan is good. Worthy of their ranking as are we and OSU. I hate to say that , but it seems to be true. They go into Columbus and win. We gotta do the same

We can put any talk of winning the conference regular season in the garbage unless Michigan collapses in the next 44 seconds
Only if they base on percentage. We sweep our games and Mich loses to us...17-3 vs 15-2.

We need to sweep and let the chips fall and win B10 tourney.

We do all that and we will be a top seed in NCAA and know that we are playing our best basketball going to tourney.

We still have games at Ohio State, at Michigan, and at Wisconsin....not likely we end with 3 conference losses. Really, there is no shame if we go 1-2 if the games are contested. Wicked conference this year.
 
#138      
I really think this helps Illinois to the 1 line. Now beat just tOSU and your a 1. If tOSU had won this game we would have to beat them both to get a 1 seed.
Agreed. Even with a loss to Michigan if we win out we are a 1 seed with a victory over Ohio St. I hope that makes sense.

Yep, if we finish out the conference season 3-2, that’s a pretty strong finish. Though, in that situation, we very likely do not earn a 1 seed.

Gotta finish out 4-1 or better for a 1 seed.

Michigan's remaining games:

vs. #11 Iowa
at Indiana
vs. #5 Illinois
vs. Michigan State
at Michigan State

Obviously this all depends on us winning out and beating Michigan, and we REALLY needed OSU to win today ... but it ain't over 'til it's over! When Iowa gets hot, they can beat anyone. IU is likely to start imploding, so I am not counting on them, lol. Then, that leaves two rivalry games with an improving MSU team. We only need them to lose once.
 
#141      
Well that's probably the end of our chance at a conference champ. At least we have the inside track for a 1 seed right now, which is good because I'd like to avoid Baylor, Gonzaga, and Michigan for as long as possible.
 
#142      
I want to beat them both and win the Big Ten Conference title! that is the most important and best goal this team can have. to be the outright Big Ten champs for the first time since 2004/ 2005 Big Ten Championship. Thats step one on the check list, win out in league.
They would not be even in a scenario where we win out and scUM only losses to us. They are going to play 2 less games winning percentage is going to determine the championship we would end up second. We would have beaten scUM, but their ploy to avoid playing us right after their self employed break will have worked.

Current seed predictions depending on how we close out the season:

5-0/4-1: 1 seed
3-2: 2 seed
2-3: 3 seed
1-4: 4 seed
0-5: 5 seed

Improving? They beat IU yesterday and have lost 6 of their last 9 games. I mean it's a decent win against IU but they are not improving.

His FG% and 3p% are way below Grandison. If was playing the same role Grandison is playing for us, his numbers would be way worse. It's possible his percentages would be higher in that role, but he wasn't willing to play that role so, that's that.

I don't see us falling below a 2 seed unless we go 1-4. 2-3 probably still puts us at a 2 seed. I mean are you really going to say there are a legit 8 teams better than us if we go 2-3.

Wow 2 monthss ago. I wonder if he'll ever get that privilege chip off his shoulder. We know who is Daddy is, man thats tuff, poor rich, nba daddies kid.. So much talent. It'll probably play well in NBA though!
😂
NBA isn't known for defense anymore, so he might be fine. I can't find him anywhere on any mock draft this or next year. Syracuse isn't currently a tourney team. They're on Lunardi's nest four out. Only one win against a ranked opponent. 😂
