    Sorry to be “that guy” but we have 4 games left. Let’s sweep em all! What a game, looking forward to all the postgame stuff on the site.

  • Jake

    Nice picture, but wrong game. No shots yet from this game? Go blue!

  • Tony DeMaria

    Awesome win but there’s 4 games left for UM, 3 for State.

    It looked bleak after another slow start but a great finish! It was nice to see Stauskas get back on track. It was also nice to see a more aggressive GR III. And it was good to see Levert have another big game. Now if Caris can just smooth out some of the rough spots.

    6 out of the last 8! Awesome atmosphere at Crisler today. If we could bottle up today’s second half performance with the one at OSU, we would be super dangerous.

  • Champswest

    Nik, what motivated you the second half?

    I’ve been contained the past few games. I’m tired of it. I’m not going to be contained anymore.

    There were 2 impossible stretches for UM in the Big Ten season consisting of 7 total games, 3 at home (vs. Iowa, Wisconsin, MSU), 4 on the road (@ Wisconsin, MSU, Iowa, OSU). That is every game we played against a team that is currently ranked. I was hoping to go 2-5 or 3-4 at best in those games. Instead we went freaking 5-2, with a 3-1 record on the road. Awesome stuff, and it made the difference between Michigan leading the Big Ten race with 2 weeks to go as opposed to potentially being a bubble team.

    Can anyone ID who these recruits are (standing by the lockers)? They had to be impressed with the game today.
