"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
DEATH TO BACKBOARDS
OMG NOOOOOOOOO LEWAN'S FINGER!!!
what are you gonna do...not the first time we lost cause of rebounding and free throws sigh
I can feel pain anymore.
Double Post ahh
am done banking...
Webbs timeout, 2006 Crable, 2007 Crable, The Worse Refreed Hockey Game in the History of REd Berenson last year, and the Crazy BTT shot last year..... I dont feel bad about this at all after thinking about those..
This is the first year I've watched BB in a long time. Heartbreaking losses sure, but our players are as good as any (talent level). Young and making too many mistakes, but pretty spectacular. Morris, Morgan, and Hardaway are all special talents if they can take the next step - Morris finish those lay-ups b/c he looks like he can get to the basket at will (to say nothing of his incredible passing), Morgan finish strong at the basket every time, and Hardaway looks like he can do it all. I mean, all of it. What happens if Novak and Douglass hit their 3's?
Which, by the way, I thought Beilein's teams were supposed to run around and shoot 3's all day? Not even close. They get to the basket and hammer it down often enough.
These guys are all back? I'm in for the next several years at least. They're fantastic
Prett much sums it up. Why did all the announcers refuse to call it the totally lucky wild bomb that it was? I mean it went in and that's fair enough but come on.
Really can't complain that much - it was lost at the free throw line.
Those are the kinds of things that happen when a very young team plays a very experienced team. That they can hang in these games is actually a testament to their talent, the effort they put out, and especially the coaching ability of John Beilein. Good things are coming for this team
That sucked. Good fucking grief.
I really dont know what to say. The whole thing was coming together, too.
like Chuck Norris punched me in the dick when that three bank went in. I usually give other teams credit but that might have been worst shot that any team has ever lost to. Shouldn't never gotta to that point though. Morris has to be mentally stronger than that. Two fts and that seals the deal, instead we virtually end our season on the luckiest game-winning shot ever seen.
This team is going to be so hungry this offseason. Coming so close to so many good teams and not dancing might be good in the long run for such a young team.
...novack's shooting in the last 2 games, including an easy reverse layup that was not attempted with 4-5 minutes left in game, and instead an easy block for one of the many wisconsin dorks. this loss sucked.
I was the N in Michigan tonight. Everything was ridiculous and hype right until the end and then it felt like getting kicked in the nuts repeatedly. Just letting that guy get loose off the inbounds, so simple and fundamental and yet te worst thing they did all night.
NEGGED FOR GUN TOO SMALL
Can't we make free throws? That's all I want to know! WHY?!?!
Grab a fucking rebound. It is nothing short of torture watching this team try to get a defensive rebound. Bye bye tourney.

It would be great if Novak and Stu could start playing well.
DVR'd the game (worked 5-1 ), just finished watching, and I feel disgusting.
Your odds of beating teams as good as Wisconsin, Ohio State, or Purdue with only two very modestly talented juniors as upperclass starters are just not going to be in your favor. The fact that they had a 17-shot disadvantage and it still took a ridiculously improbable shot at the buzzer by a pure freshman to beat us should say something about the character of our kids, and the kind of coaching they're getting.
Who at the start of the year would have even thought that this game would have meant anything? This team has progressed way, way beyond any expectations. It sucked they lost, it sucked how they lost, but this team will grow from this and will be better prepared next year for these situations at the end of games.
But haven't we said this for 4 years?
Sorry, I'm just depressed.
This is too painful to see. Please take it down. I'm trying to forget about last night, and this isn't helping.
So if that awful, lucky, 3%-chance-of-going-in heave bounces off the rim, then we're a good enough team to play in the tournament?
I wanted to cry. In the future, please make free throws.
I don't know what was worse, the bank shot or the horrible Evan Turner flashback that followed. Yeah that sucked, but these kids give me great hope for the future. I like the direction coach B has this team headed.
Reading this thread this morning made me relive unhappy times. I am sad.
It seems like this UM team is destined to be known as the team that was ALMOST really good.
anyone interested in lobbying the ncaa to institute a rule stating shots banked in behind the ark shall only count as 1 pt.?
