    Michigan coach Borseth dismisses Hilton crowd

    Have to laugh as Kevin Borseth says Hilton is "no tougher to play in than any other place..."
    Excuse me coach - what Big Ten crowd is like Hilton?

    I would say that Hilton was rather tame today...not one of the boisterous crowds that can lift a team all by itself. Good crowd but he didn't get to experience the best!

    Very mellow crowd today considering the $2 tickets and the mens bball ticket season holders being able to go to the game real cheap too.
    Looked like there was 14 students there.

    Well, I'd say just the number of fans at Hilton would make Borseth sit up and kinda take notice - the only Big Ten program close us is Purdue, and they averaged 1200 less fans per game than we did last year.
    Michigan doesn't play in front of a crowd like this very often...

    No different than the standard comments from ol' ChestBump Lee or Frau Bluder over the years -- after they came to Hilton and got thumped -- about how they see those types of crowds every night in the Big Ten.

    Yeah, if the Big Ten had 4 home games in one night and you added 'em all up to get one overall attendance number.

    Maybe he should go have another meltdown about offensive rebounding and bad shooting.

    Re: Michigan coach Borseth dismisses Hilton crowd

    He is an idiot. Should have heard all the 4 letter words he was saying as he came off the court at halftime, refs should have T'd him up right there.

    As for the game, good thing our defense was going OK because we shot the ball very poorly today. Defense at times missed on some help-defense too and allowed some easy buckets in the 1st half but they did much better with that in the 2nd half. Offense needs to not be so hesitant to put up shots sometimes. Mansfield and Schroll could have beat their defenders off the dribble several times but were hesitant to pop the shot when they had it. This is a young team that lost their player that had the killer instinct to take over games in Lacy, someone will eventually have to step into that role and take the game into their hands when it's close. Bolte showed some of that late in the game I thought but she also got some good looks at some 3 pointers too on blown defensive rotations.


    Go Cubs Go!

    I remember that - Bluder was asked about our Hilton crowd and she said something ridiculous like "it just prepares us for what we'll see on the road all year in the Big Ten."
    Do the Big Ten coaches get together and agree not to acknowledge the Big 12?

    Well, the Big 10 already thinks they are better than everybody, when they aren't. So, I'm not surprised by comments like this.

    It's here or there, I don't think he said it to insult the fans here.

    Well, the Big XII hasn't helped their image out in this thing. We're 4-7 with one game left to go. Granted, some of the match-ups weren't the best, but our conference isn't exactly lighting the world on fire.

    We should have a good chance to move up from pre-season prognostications, imo, OU seems to be suspect.

    The Big 10 still thinks they are a power conference in WBB. Of course, they smacked it to the Big 12 yesterday.

    You know if the shoe was on the other foot, BF would acknowledge it and say something very complimentary about the school, coach, and program. Not too many coaches have the class BF has. Just shows how much class she has. One thing I appreciate about BF, is he is always very respectful of other coaches and programs.
