You have a big reason to be worried on Tuesday. If we win, Michigan would be 2 games back of first place with six games to go. If you really believe the league office manipulates the games with the refs, Tuesday will be a big deal.
Is it to early to nominate this for thread of the year?
As long as the bald bastard who reffed the first and only Big Ten game and called us for like 40 fouls to scums 8 isn't there ever again, we should have an evenly called game.
IF we get Teddy or Eddy, we're screwed.
IF we get the crew that's at tO$U today, we'll be OK.
Nίκη για MSU
Eades is on that crew, do we really want him? I do hope we get Steratore though, he's awesome.

No reason to worry. The league office wants Indiana to win it all.
Last year the refs worked very hard to try and get UM a win at the Breslin, but we were just kicking UM's ass all over the place, so the refs were only able to keep the game from being a blowout.
Then the refs worked very hard to try and get OSU a win at the Breslin so that OSU and UM could share the title, and they pulled it off. We were dominating OSU quite well, but a ridiculous 18-4 free throw advantage kept the game being over at halftime like it should've been. Then Dawson hurt his knee and Buford took advantage of no longer being locked down. It all worked out for OSU to just pull off an ill-gotten win at the end.
I am not still pissed about any of this.
What's the theory on why the B1G would want scUM to win the conf instead of you guys?
Delaney has wolverine and Bucknutt scrotum is his mouth.
The return of the falsely accused Fab Five.
I was talking about this with my buddy the other day. If there ever was a game that this conference would rig to maintain a close race to the finish, then this is the mother of them all. Fully expect the the refs to keep scUM in it.
Steratore is a football ref, so he allows physical play which gives the game a nice flow. Hightower and valentine always ref like they have to prove they have control. Wouldn't be surprised if those two are on the take.
hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
I though Eddy has been pretty fair the last few games. I think he is starting to come around
They're not on the take, they're just egomaniacs.
Eddy reminds me of when I have to pick up my dogs turds with a plastic bag. Teddy reminds me of when my dog has runny shit, and I attempt to pick it up with a plastic bag. Neither experience is pleasant, but one is definitely worse.
Indiana plays at scUM the last game of the big ten season (sunday the 10th).
Delany is jizzing himself with the ratings/marketing potential of the 2 top teams battling for a winner take all BIG title and a #1 seed

Did you watch the game yesterday???

Watched wisc um yesterday. Thought the officiating was very fair. Let the guys play and didn't give too much if anything to wisc for bring at home.
Then our game where contact=foul.
Hoping they let us play on tues but if its a tightly called game, we have been there before and thrived. Just gotta keep appling in the gme.
Hightower games are virtually unwatchable. I don't really think he favors one team over another, it's just that every mother fucking drive to the basket results in a whistle. The Michigan-Wisconsin game had a combined 6 seconds half fouls while our game had like 56 FTs. You will never convince me the two games were played that differently to warrant that kind of foul disparity.
We all know the Big Ten has refs watch films of previous games in order to determine how they will be called.

Damn we are already talking about the refs. If we lose it will be because we got beat.
"You make sure when you come, you got a little blood in your eye, a little blood in your eye, a little fire in your belly. We there yet?"
I think the one thing that will save us from the refs is Breslin. If this game was in scUM then we would be in trouble.
I'm not sure. Seems we have little home court advantage compared to other big ten schools.
I disagree with most of you...if you look at Michigan's schedule...this is their last tough road game. That is why their losing at Wisky was so important for the Big Ten title race...if they won that one than they were clear favorites.
My guess is Indiana loses two more on the road and finishes 14-4. I am expecting us to split with Michigan.
Long story short...no need for a screw job.
John Niyo: To me, the two best athletes are the two biggest X-factors, aside from the usual big-game concerns about the Big Ten officiating. Glenn Robinson III's undeniably in a rut now, made worse by Jordabn Morgan's injury absence, while Branden Dawson's coming off a career-high 20 points at Purdue. Pick: Michigan State, 64-61

I've always thought he was very good... IF AND ONLY IF he's not the crew chief.
Good at the 'balls and strikes' calls.
