HUGE game tonight. I am worried about this one. Would love the anticipation for Sunday if we win tonight.
I'm nervous too. There's almost nothing good that can come out of this game. And Purdue will be playing at home with no pressure and nothing to lose. I can just see DJ Byrd going off for 30.
Yes. We have also lost our last 4 road games. I'm hoping this team is not looking forward to the IU game... or having a hangover from the MSU victory.
- Indiana's previous 4 home games they shot: 29 (Nebraska), 25 (Michigan), 24 (Purdue), and 42(?! - Iowa) free throws. They shot 13 last night against OSU.
Bball fun fact #4, courtesy ESPN:
"While it's nearly impossible to quantify a coaching advantage -- the variables are difficult to isolate; controlled environments are rare -- there is one game situation in which a coach has greater control than any other: a play call immediately following a timeout. And Michigan, with Beilein and assistant Jeff Meyer making the calls, is third among BCS schools in points scored out of a timeout."
This can't be. The Sparty's keep telling me Coach B is not a good coach.
This is exactly why i think Michigan comes to play tonight. I am sure they are well aware they have lost 4 in a row on the road and will bring it tonight. I am fully expecting a good performance and a win.
Hmmm, wish this stat was reported as points per post timeout play. Could be Beilein calls a large number of timeouts to set up an offensive set, rather than converting a high percentage of those post timeout plays. I'm hoping its both - high efficiency + high frequency, but I'd feel better putting faith in that statistic if it was presented in that way.
Also, doesn't it say just as much (or more) about Jeff Meyer since he's the one designing and/or calling the plays out of the timeout? I'm very impressed in the quality and depth of Michigan bball's staff. We all hear about how great Bacari is, LaVall Jordan is always spoken of highly, and now Jeff Meyer may be an ace at designing/calling offensive sets.
Burke should win the POTY hands down. His stats are way better than Oladipo and he comes up clutch more (see block on Craft, steal on Appling)
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
I really hope he does win POTY, but I have a feeling he's running 3rd right now behind Oladipo and Otto Porter from Georgetown. A win versus Indiana would do a lot to get him back in the public's eye - and dent Oladipo's candidacy.
If you can have the same numbers as magic johnson and you still can't win the POTY then nobody should get the POTY.
GA TECH 71
OK ST 76
IOWA ST 87
Really happy with this outcome. I'm a big supporter of Villanova. Now they're in the tourney!
Disagree. Oladipo hurt his chances last night with the loss to OSU (and he didn't play well). And Otto Porter was coming on lately, but I think he was at best 3rd or 4th ... and G-town just lost tonight, which won't help. I really think it will come down to Burke v. Oladipo and this Sunday's game might just be what decides it.

Certainly has been a crazy basketball season.
After tonight I really don't think this team deserves a BIG championship. I will take one but we are not the best team in the conference.
Winning and being the best don't always go hand-in-hand in college basketball.

Michigan plays Indiana at home this Sunday for a share of the B10 title. If we win, it will be only the fourth time in more than 100 years playing basketball we've won back-to-back B10 titles.

I'm a foot taller than that guy and I couldn't even dunk until I'd been in the weight room for about 5 months.
You're 6'5? Damn
