    I haven’t seen Michigan play much this year but what’s going on. Having Dickerson and multiple other guys back plus your freshman I expected more. Not shooting well? Bad defense?

    We suck because of coaching, what’s your excuse?

    Guard play is poor; the portal PG has been a total miss. More importantly, no one can shoot to give the offense any spacing. The young guys on defense have breakdowns, which is somewhat expected. The offensive stuff isn’t. One of the 5 star freshman (Diabate) is easily top 3 on the team in terms of talent on the team yet the metrics are better when he’s off the court. 5 of the 8-9 guys in the rotation are 4/5’s at their natural position. The roster construction is pretty unbalanced. The sum of the parts is much less than the individual talent; 3-4 guys will most likely get drafted off this current team in the next year or two and currently they will have to play way better to even make the tournament.

    To summarize, poor guard play and poor shooting are the crux of the issues. Juwan will go on and on about guys finding their roles and all that. But Minn has 10 (11?) new players and a new coach and wiped the floor with Michigan on the road. Spare me that coach-speak BS.

    Are there no good freshman in our conference this year? Max Christie has won the last two with very pedestrian games.

    Bryce McGowens is very good. One of the highest ppg in the country for Freshmen. We just suck really badly.

    Your kindness to Rutgers is noted but not handling our business against much hated and reviled Seton Hall makes us unworthy of pity.

    Really disappointing to see OSU sink to the levels of faking a COVID outbreak to avoid playing a scheduled game.

    Saw the 2nd half last night. I think he’s pretty clearly the best guard in the conference. Fun to watch. Will be less fun playing him.

    It'd kinda suck to have him on your team, because he's such a douche that it almost isn't worth it

    Glad they waited until midnight the night before the game, after making MSU travel down, with all the rumors swirling the last couple of days.

    Nothing like Michigan ducking another Top 10 opponent

    Should be required to provide the results. Howard said yesterday they were getting two guys back who were out on Tuesday. Clearly didn’t want to get their ass kicked.

    #1 recruiting class and won’t even make the tourney. Hahahah
