    Also you obviusly did not watch the game Michigan was in it until about 12 minutes left in the game.
    So in the last 12 minutes UCLA went on a 40-0 scoring run? Or does "being in it" mean down by only ten or twenty points?
    They were down 15. Not exactly out of it.

    So i guess you didn't watch it either, nice job.

      Yeah, you lost, but at least you were down by only 15 points at one point in the game. That's a plus.

          The fact that we've had 6 injuries to start the season. 12-2 is pretty damn good for a makeshift team. And for the fact that we should have beaten Arizona in Phoenix without both Randle and Smith, and while Pruitt had a chipped bone in his hand and while Frazier has a foot problem. I'd love to see Michigan cope with those kind of problems while losing Harris and Simms. Btw, what teams have you played this season that are worth a salt?

          Hmm lemme check oh NC State and UCLA. You had a healthy squad and lost both games.

          And btw, underrated teams don't get blown out by 40 teams, I'm sorry. It just doesn't happen.

          But keep telling yourselves they're better than us. Sure anything can happen in a basketball game but the matchup just isn't there danman.

          Ok here we go again with the matchup b/w us and Duke since none of the Duke fans want to step up to the plate and argue it.

          Paulus vs Frazier - I'd take Frazier all day long. Read on page 28 to see why.

          Nelson vs McBride - Nelson all day long.

          Randle vs Scheyer - Randle all day long.

          Carter vs McRoberts - Warren Carter has been a force all year, period. McRoberts is waaay to inconsistent.

          Pruitt vs ? - Who is Duke's C anyway? I'll give you the C here for sympathy. Haha just kiddin. Pruitt has a lot of skill but he's also inconsistent. So I'll take Duke's guys.

          Our bench vs your bench.

          Jamar Smith, Calvin Brock, Trent Meacham, Brian Carlwell, and Marcus Arnold vs Henderson, McClure, (and whoever else they have).

          Jamar Smith is one of the most talented offensive guards in the country shooting the ball. I see him as being a hybrid of JJ Redick who can drive the ball. Calvin Brock has been a great fine for our team this season and has done very well, been our MVP multiple times this season. The other 3 are solid guys who can produce off the bench. Not great but solid.

          There, someone argue this with me please. I'll be waiting to counter-argue.

          • We'll see what happens sweetness. But the fact is Illinois has not produced either, so don't go calling them a top 25 team when really they have not done anythign to merit it.

              Oh so now you're back peddaling. A minute ago you said that Michigan was going to sweep us, us being a team that a majority of people have picked as the 3rd best team in the Big 10.

              • How am i backpedaling. Michigan has not bee na great program. Playing tough for 3/4 against UCLA is good for us.

                Sweetness, all you are saying is that Illinois is good xcept for the injured guys, but you assume they are gonna step in and tear it up? How does that work?

                  • Simply put: when Florida plays like they did yesterday, nobody in the country is capable of beating them. The thing with Florida is, they're not a deep team, and they need all their players healthy to be a dominant team, but boy, when they're healthy, it's a joy to watch. All of Florida's losses last year, and their two losses this season, have come when they've had players out. If anyone goes down, they're more than beatable, but when they have all their bodies in the lineup, they are a dominant team.

                    You can see Oden is going to be a special player, he's unbelievable defensively, but he does have his flaws. One main one being that he gets pushed around in the post by experienced and intelligent post players. Horford and Richard continually pushed him out of the paint yesterday and grabbed rebounds over him. He'll learn with time, and if he stays around another year, Ohio State becomes my favorite to win the title in '08.

                      However Illinois is not that good either, and would lose by a lot to UCLA as well.

                        You just said they'd beat us in a matchup, but then you say being down 15 points is Michigan Basketball. Something's gotta give there danman.

                        And btw, could someone please break down Illinois and tell me how they suck. Please. It's getting ridiculous to hear you guys talk crap and not back it up. Randle has stepped in and played well, so has Jamar, so has Chet, so has Warren Carter. It's a matter of we can't get all of our guys on the court at the same time. Jags says we suck, danman says we suck, tt says we suck but I've yet to hear any analysis.

                        And btw titletown, have you seen Illinois this season, if so break them down for me. That's right, break them down starting 5, bench, etc. I've broken down Duke for you many times, and all you've argued is records and production. I'm not talking about that, I'm talking about the matchup, as I have been.

                        Tell me how Duke is a top 10 team and tell me how Illinois sucks. If you can prove to me either of those to be true then I'll shut up, but if you can't I'm going to continue to say we're a better team on paper. Sure it doesn't mean much to be "better on paper" but if I had a pick b/w the two, I'd take Illinois. Maybe it's a homer statement, or maybe it's the fact that I've seen Duke 4 times this season, and I've watched my guys all year long and Duke has done nothing to open up my eyes. I've watched a fully healthy top 10 team struggle against Holy Cross and Kent State at Cameron.

                        Btw and MSU being in the top 25 is a joke too. Without Morgan, they're about as good as a low mid major .500 team.

                          So they're classified as an underrated bad team?

                            God you don't like reading do you?

                            When does me saying "Not a great team" make them bad.

                            Underrated. They are an above average team, but should still get a solid 17-18 wins this year.

                              Too bad they were down double digits almost the entire game. Playing tough and being in the game are two different things. And a 40 point victory doesn't happen on a fluke.

                              But not having 2 starters, having your PG banged up, and having your PF banged up and leading a #15 team in the nation for 3/4 of the game until the refs screw you over on fouls is underrated IMO.

                              Like I said, find me another team who's had as much crap happen to them as we have so far and then talk to me. Florida comes close with Brewer having Mono and Horford getting a bummed ankle but other than that, 12-2 for a team that's had this many injuries is damn good IMO.
