Reiger and Fithian are the two that drive me insane. Their cartoon voices coupled with their lack of non-U of M related knowledge is pathetic. As for pay, neither make much of anything at all. Guessing it would be equal to a job at Home Depot or Best Buy. Only a few of the local guys make anything that wouldn't be considered embarrassing. Most of them have other, non industry jobs to survive.
Spot on. UM has a hell of a team this year. To be honest, I think we'll be lucky to keep it close.
I think we split it. They'll beat us at The Arena Formerly Known As A Poorly Lit Shithole, and we'll win at home.
tRCMB - Visit at your own risk of being disgusted.
What the fuck are you talking about? They're maybe a lock for the CIT? Their worst case scenario right now is a 3 seed.
Was that a serious post or do I suck at picking up sarcasm?
I think we have and will continue to play to the level of our competition (eg. tuskegee, kansas, miami, texas) which in SCUMs case will happen to be higher than what is thought of us. I like our chances better than if we were the favorite. This team is an exception to the margin of victory thought process.
This is fucking brilliant.
starting w/ the game at C'bus Sunday, they have 6 of 9 games on the road: @tOSU, @Minnesota, Purdue, @Illinois, NW, @IU, tOSU, @Wisky, @MSU.
They'll be doing amazing to win 6 of those games. 5 of 6 of those teams are in the top 20 right now, and we all know at Wisky is not easy no matter how good they are. throw in tOSU at home and that's 7 of 9 games that are potential losses, and each and every one is a great challenge than any game they've played yet. When you start stacking them on top of one another they get exponentially tougher as the stretch wears on. And how perfect is it that this tough schedule ends at the Breslin, where we can cap off a nice losing streak for them and bring them crashing back down to earth.
Their remaining road games are PSU and Purdue, and they get PSU 2 out of 3 games split by Illinois at home after that gauntlet. But then still have MSU and IU at home as well.
No one is winning this league with fewer than 4 losses. It's just not going to happen. Whether someone who finishes 14-4 can get a 1 seed remains to be seen, but Michigan is about to start playing teams that can go inside on them, and it's going to be very interesting to see how they handle that. They are awfully good, but they are hardly a dominant force like past years have had with Kentucky, the Hansbrough UNC team, etc. They have depth issues and Morgan is a fencepost down low. Personally, I think Payne and Nix are going to eat them alive, and IU is going to beat them twice and they'll end up with the one seed.
When Lunardi, Katz, or other CBB writers say "lock for tourney" that means if they lose every game remaining. If scUM lost every game remaining would they be a 1 seed - if they went 8-8 would they be? At this point, they've probably locked up a CIT berth - no more.
saying anyone is a lock for anything at this point is stupid. Taking anything a sports talk radio host says seriously, also stupid.
Stoney isn't helped much by Bill McDumbAss who is 50 going on 85. Everything that isn't white, conservative, old-fashioned things is complete garbage to him. Complete arrogant baffoon.
So right on with this one. I have respect that Bill paid his dues for years before getting his gig but after listening it is apparent why it took so long. He is bad and he should feel bad.
Station is basically unlistenable, unless it's Karsch/Anderson on all topics that don't involve UM/MSU. They do some fairly good stuff on most other topics. I can take Valenti and Foster if they talk national topics, but that's basically never.

Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
I'm going to tell you my thoughts on 97.1FM coming up at 9:47a.
Kansas State is 42nd in the RPI. Thanks for playing.
Wow, that is a brutal stretch.
And people forget, um is not a big team with depth in the front court. The injury to small dog hasn't been exposed yet. You get into b10 physical play, you need those bodies, and more importantly, fouls. You never know when you're going to get a ref who allows body slams but blows the quick whistle if you look at you guy 20 feet from the basket.
That's exactly it
MSU has played more RPI top 50 games, but on the other end, MSU also has played way more sub 200 games as well
UM living off RPI 60-120 wins while playing 1- no one really great and 2- no one really bad either for the most part
Gator is the biggest Detroit homer on Earth. I think Karsch is actually pretty solid other than being a traitor.
UM is playing with great offensive efficiency. That makes them look very good. Watch two teams, one playing with great offense -average defense, the other with great defense- average offense. The former looks better to casual viewers.
Will see what happens to that offensive efficiency when they get into a bunch of B1G streetfights.
You are delusional and blinded by hate. You must also think Duke is not a lock for the tourney then, correct?
You're not reading what I'm writing. Of course, there's a 99.9% scUM and Duke make the tourney. I'm not disputing that. What I'm disputing is the fact that they're "pretty much guaranteed a one seed," given that there are at a minimum 16 games left, and that if they lose them all, they may not make the CIT, let alone a 1 seed in the NCAA.
Thats a stupid ass response. You minus well say that there is a chance you fuck every hot girl in America, because every other man and ugly girl on Earth COULD die, and the remaining hot girls COULD locate you and get in line.
Hey. It could happen.
go back to Ann Arbor you self-loathing piece of shit!
I think we need to see how they'll hold up in these two brutal road games before we make any judgments.
That NC State win looks better and better.
So does our Kansas win.
