Game 31: Michigan at Michigan State Open Thread


#441

MSU is a better team.

Simpson shot way too much this game

I thought the auto-benching hurt us in the first half


#442

It’s lazy to say last year we won because of mental toughness and this years MSU won because mental toughness.


#443

100% agreed. Full on reversal. Not the end of the world or anything, still believe in this team on a neutral court. Just for whatever reason, MSU had their number this year - although we’ll see maybe in Chicago.


#444

he’s incredible, he’s had an all time year by a b1g pg imo, considering the talent around him better than burke in 2012-2013 imo


#445

Michigan kinda mailing it in.


#446

I agree, it’s not “mental toughness”, it’s just who’s playing smarter bball…and msu has been smarter so far


#447

Enough to be ahead.


#448

21-26 vs 5-7 cue unlikely 3s and very badly missed open guy


#449

You’re way overracting man. Nobody is saying it’s strictly to mental toughness. Lazy putdown.

In 2018-19, MSU played sharper, smarter and withstood the runs in these two games.


#450

Lol, then they call nothing when we’re trying to foul. Man, at least make it look good, guys.


#451

I don’t give a crap about playing State in the BTT. Exhibition games are not what matters the rest of the way.


#452

actual fgs michigan favor


#453

No Langford - no Ward no problem. B1G champs.


#454

Gonna tip my cap to the better team and get something to eat. Congrats MSU. You earned it


#455

Dear Jordan, nobody gives a shit about your jabs steps and fade-aways. Please work on your b-ball IQ in the off-season.


#456

Winston is a great college player


#457

msu earned jack. Great free throw shooting team.


#458

Of course they did. Michigan shouldn’t have to play a perfect game in order for it to be OK to talk about that.

But, onward. They were robbed of the opportunity to compete for one of their goals, and hopefully that fuels them in their pursuit of the next one.


#459

And not falling down after shot.


#460

I’m not talking about offensive boards - I get the need to send guys back. But our halfcourt D can’t keep them off the glass.
