    Talked about Illinois not shooting it as well lately and of course Plummer goes 6-of-7 in the first half already tonight :rofl:

    That was a horribly officiated game. I hope Ohio paid them well at halftime. Ohio also has the best floppers in the league.

    I agree on the flopping and I think I mentioned it after our game. They are great at just slamming into a defender in the post all game but one bump on defense and they drop like a rock. Really annoying and I am sure Kofi agrees with us this morning.

    That being said…I think Michigan should do a little more of it. We are often undersized in our defensive matchup so when they hit you with the shoulder…go down. B10 refs fall for that all the time.

    Between Howard, Underwood, and Kofi, there will sure be plenty of subconscious and legitimate points of emphasis for the referee’s in Sunday’s game

    Could not agree more with you guys on the aggressive 1-2-2 full court defense. Hope it gets shelved until a desperate situation.
