Smoothest MSU offense has looked in weeks.  Getting a ton of really open looks.

Meh, my mom throws better hip checks. 

Fine print context: my mom used to put people in the hospital with hipchecks.

Purdue fans here looking for a split in their two games. Given that there's every bit of likelihood that we might pick up another loss along the way, an extra loss for BOTH Mich and MSU helps us still have the best shot at a share of the title. We're hoping 16-4 is a share. 

If either Mich or MSU sweep, it's more likely that the sweeping team ends up at 17-3, giving Purdue no margin. 

MSU stealing one on the road, short-handed, is pretty much our nightmare scenario.

MSU getting nothing from their 2s and 3s.  Relying on Winston driving and Goins hitting 3s was not sustainable.

I think it's a testament to the individual talent of Simpson and Matthews defensively, and the scheme as a whole, because Poole might be as bad a defender as there is in the Big Ten.  They are the 2nd best defense in nation, in spite of 20% of their personnel being awful at it.

Shoot, we might be able to get ELA to say MSU is good, maybe.

Oh, they are definitely very good.  But so is Michigan, and it's a road game, and MSU is down 2 of their 3 best players.  If Duke rolled into Ann Arbor right now, I'd pick UM to win that.  They are a really good team, and an elite team at home.
I don't know what to expect in the second half, because very little went as expected. UM, in particular Simpson, looked blah defensively, but he went out and was a major threat offensively. MSU is getting nothing from their guards and wings except Winston.  So will they show up, and join Tillman/Goins, or will those guys revert to the mean, and still get nothing from McQuaid, Henry and Ahrens.

I expected more defense in this game. It seems to be tightening up a little bit. Still, they could end up in the 70's.
U RAH RAH! WIS CON SIN!

I assumed we'd see some good defense coming out, not so much.  May just be a surprisingly high scoring afternoon.  What was the O/U?  Seems like they have to be on pace to blow well by that.
