Chill out. We were down 12 with Appling on the bench and we fought back and had the lead. If we shot better from the line and/or Payne/Dawson/Nix didn't turn it over and miss so many bunnies we probably win. I thought Nix let Mbakwe intimidate him and didn't go up strong enough. Too much fading away on his baby hooks
We were out rebounded 35-23 and Minnesota shot 55%. That is where the game was lost. A lot of that falls on Dawson, Payne and Nix.
The refs were a distraction to our players. I didn't like it when they called touch fouls on us but Minny was hitting our ball handler all the way up the court. The refs can not let Appling get knocked down on a loose ball and later call a cheap push off on Payne (that probably never happened). You can't play under those circumstances
Life on the road in the B1G. 13-5 might win the conference this year or at least get you a piece of it. Gonna be a lot of tough road games for all the contenders this year.

I also have limited tolerance for ad hominen player bashing. I've banned a number of folks over the years for that.
There will be a ton of 12-6's and a 10-8 that won't get into the tournament because 7 teams will get in and I bet you that 10-8 team will be Northwestern.
You do know that to have a ton of 12-6 and 10-8 you need a bunch of 8-10 and 6-12 too right?
Any .500 team in the B10 makes it this year for sure. Northwestern is 9-4 and lost to UIC and Maryland (by 20) at home and against Stanford. They stink. They'll be lucky to be 6-12
What the fuck are you smoking? First of all Northwestern isn't winning 10 conference games, but if they did they would sure as hell be in.
We were out rebounded 38-24. One of their guards had 12. Payne 7, Nix 4, Dawson 2. That is effort.
I think Izzo feels the same way. He was surprisingly upbeat in the post game interview. He was impressed with the way they battled back after being 12 down and also said a lot of good things about the way some of the guys played. He's quite often somber after a loss, but today he sounded very positive.

21-10 (10-8) going into B1G Tournament
22-11 going into NCAA Tournament
6 or 7 seed
Rogue Leader= Obese coward who didn't attend MSU and has no college degree
That's the absolute best case scenario. We are piss poor.
