It felt a little like the bullying was a response to the asswhipping they took at Crisler last year. Cheap intimidation in place of actual strategy.

He should have Harbaugh’s lifetime contract. He deserves it more.

He doesn’t always get the most talent but his teams are always tacticians. I always enjoy the way they play.

I think that's just what they do, and I mean it as a compliment. They do a great job being as physical as possible without it really hurting them, and I envy that. Izzo teams are truly good when they can do MORE than that though. Which they didn't today.

I donít ever recall what I saw today. Iím used to workmanlike composure from sparty, not the constant flexing and growling.

Against Michigan, in Breslin, I think that stuff's the norm.

Sweet win. Ugly officiating. Even uglier was Gus on the call. I lost track of how many times he called Matthews MAAR.

Good game, that play by Wagner where he went behind his back with under 3 to go was amazing.

He does that at least twice every game. It’s just that Nick Ward is fat and slow so it made it look better when he tripped over his own feet and fell on his ass.

Really important win for seeding, could've used that Purdue game too. Livers isn't a great defender yet way better than Robinson. Like most JB teams that aren't hit by injuries, much better in February than December/January.

B1G is weak enough for us to do very well the rest the way. FT shooting could be Achilles heel in close games.

Let's go get Purdue. We can win there. They aren't better than us.

Need to be ranked after this. Strong chance to stay ranked rest of the year.

Yup. Which is a bit sad, but that's where we're at right?

This team should beat Purdue. OSU collapse may mean loss of hardware, even. Neither of those other two teams are all that impressive.

Kenpom has us #15, Purdue #2 surprising to me as I wasn't too impressed with them. Ohio State 19th and the next B1G teams are: #41 Maryland, #48 PSU.

Purdue did just win on the road @ #15 Kenpom M. A road win against a M team that is playing well. To add, was winning by 4 to 13 points for more than half of the game.
Destroyed Zona, Butler... 34 point win @ Minn today.

I’m biased though.

Purdue's good, but why would Michigan be intimidated?
