Jeff Riger: Sounds Of Tuesday Night
Tuesday night was an action packed sports evening where the Wings beat the Flames on the road 3-1, the Pistons got smoked in the Big Apple 113-86 at the hands of the Knicks and Michigan State lost a tough one in Champagne Urbana to Illinois 41-40. Also Lions Defensive Tackle Ndamukong Suh talked to ESPN’s Hannah Storm specifically about his Thanksgiving Day stomp on Evan Dietrich-Smith and Michigan coach John Beilein previews taking on Indiana on Wednesday night at Crisler Center in Ann Arbor.
Below are the best 3 sound bites of Tuesday!
Pistons coach Lawrence Frank’s opening comment after his team suffered their 3rd, 20 plus point blowout in a row. Frank was not happy about any part of Detroit’s game vs. a similar struggling Knicks team.
Ndamukong Suh sat down with ESPN to talk about his stomp, amongst other things. To the outrage of Lions fans everywhere, Suh essentially took back his apology he made earlier and gave a lame excuse (again) how he did not stomp the Green Bay offensive lineman and instead he was trying to remove himself from the situation.
John Beilein addressed the media Tuesday afternoon as the Wolverines continue to get ready for Indiana in a pivotal conference game. All season long, Michigan has been very good in the games after a loss and it just so happens that the “Maize and Blue” lost in Columbus to Ohio State in their last game. Check out the part of the human body that Beilein’s staff focuses on coaching.
