    :awshucks:

    Despite a few unavoidable breakthrough infections, MSU never had to miss any games. They have done enough.

    UM has had significantly worse issues throughout the pandemic. If they were legitimate, then Michigan is not taking the pandemic seriously. Given the lack of credibility Juwan/Michigan have and timing, it appears they were not and Michigan decided to bitch out.

    That’s a lot of words to say there were 5 players available. The conference agreed:

    “In this case, the conference agreed Michigan was unable to compete and signed off on the postponement. It will either be rescheduled or declared a no contest.”

    i think the ducking wolverines are hoping the game is rescheduled for a later point in time.

    • Going to top golf in Florida with no masks on
    • Going to an Orlando magic game for team bonding
    • Flying commercial - probably spirit airlines because UM athletics is a tier 3 level
    • They couldn’t play basketball today, but the team can go to the Pistons game to see Franz Wagner play?
    • Should have to forfeit for not following the proper safety protocols

    Since the Spartans really want to watch basketball in Ann Arbor today vs the Wolverines, feel free to enjoy last year’s rendition. I do believe this is the game that clinched the title. Enjoy.

    That team have to duck anyone to win that title? One of the best um teams in decades, they at least swept the worst MSU team in decades, right?

    Am I missing something? 2 of the players couldn’t play because they are redshirting correct?

    Since when can a player not play a portion of games in a season and still not redshirt? If they played in too many earlier this season, are we to believe that the NCAA wouldn’t allow Michigan to grant some sort of waiver?

    I have not heard one person call that the best Michigan team in decades. The 2012-2013 Burke team holds that crown.

    I’m sorry you feel winning percentage is a bad way to determine a champion. But every athletic director at every conference school disagrees with you. And lol at ducking. The fucking Washtenaw county health department mandate closed all athletics down for 2 weeks. Weren’t even allowed to practice in a gym supposedly. The basketball team didn’t have any positive cases during that shutdown. But go off, king.

    Fair. Sorry for the shit posting. Seems pretty cut and dry of why the game wasn’t played but for some reason the Spartans are blaming Michigan for omicron being contagious.

    Everyone knows Omicron is contagious that’s why teams that aren’t afraid to play are taking necessary precautions

    Scott Bell is a choad. Both games are not getting rescheduled. UM is ducking automatic losses, hoping they don’t get rescheduled, so they stay above .500 and qualify for the CBI

    Yeah, I’d rather be 1-3 right now, unranked (with a guy that Ken Pom likes), instead of being ranked in top 10 and in 1st place.

    I wish someone would take your life. Or the vid, drugs, a housecat, a glass of bleach, a piece of french toast, anything, really.

    I'd also settle for someone taking your ability to post.

    Shit, I’m vaccinated with a booster, don’t own a cat, no bleach in the house ( we use vinegar), and I’m more of a eggs and bacon guy.

    I’m not going anywhere pal, I’m here just to make you hate your life a little more.

    Injecting lortab between your toes doesn't count as a vaccine or booster numb nuts.

    Bucks beat the piss out of Wisconsin the first time we played, but we play them again on Thursday so I will refrain from bitching about them being ranked ahead of us in these always important rankings

    WTF has you all riled up? Do you seriously have a micro-penis complex where if someone ever so slightly makes a remark about your beloved Spartans you go straight into asshole mode. You guys just spent 2 pages pissing and fighting back and forth over a cancelled basketball game. Now I make a nudge that a Spartan wasn’t on the list and bam your in fight mode. Yeah Iowa sucks, we know that, our coach sucks and we will continue to me mediocre at best as long as he’s around but fuck dude, step back from the ledge, have a nice glass of liquor or a Busch light and sit down before you stroke out.
