    Alternate title: Michigan looks awfully real. Michigan State looks really awful.

    How sure are we that one or more of Maryland, NW and Penn State won’t make the tournament? Likewise, one of the MAC teams we’ve beaten can easily win their conference.

    Everyone keeps pointing to our back end weighted schedule (and I don’t disagree that we’ve been somewhat fortunate, thus far) but how many of those games will we be underdogs in? With the exception of Wisco - our tough games are at home and the road games seem very winnable (Indiana, Ohio State, Mich State).

    I’m sorry that I seem to be hitting on the negative here more often than I’d like - on a positive note, last night was flat out joyous basketball, insanely fun - but on a brief watch, I thought Hoggard was an unimpressive athlete. If he’s their answer, I think they may be truly boned.

    One might but I don’t really think it is likely right now. Certainly none of them are locks. And I should have specified at large tourney team… winning the MAC is different.

    I wish I’d taken the time to post it then because I actively thought it - I was thrilled with the timing of the pre-Christmas break. It just seemed like a perfect opportunity for some head clearing and to work on things that got highlighted during some stretches of poor play in the early games. I know it means we’re going to face some grueling scheduling but it was still a real boon.
