Illinois center Mike Tisdale told reporters of the Wolverines. "It's not going to be easy for any of us. They're not going to come in and lay down. I would like to say we are [in the tournament,] but we do have work to do. We're not going to lie down. We're going to play, and we're going to play to win."

I'm going to guess this guy's GPA is around a 1.6. It's good to know they are in fact going to play tomorrow and not just going to lay down for the Wolverines. Despite this strong statement, leaning Wolverines. Illinois is more talented, but Michigan has been far more consistent down the stretch. Other than that, don't know shit about these two teams. What's the play here?
