and... i like them? I think I like them.

Yogi Ferrell (27 points, 7/8 3-pt) hit damn near everything, Indiana utilized Duke's blueprint to shut down Nik Stauskas (6 points, 1/6 FG), and the Hoosiers eventually pulled away in a brutal slog at Assembly Hall. We planned to record a podcast this afternoon; for everyone's sake, that is not happening, nor is any sort of instant recap. Enjoy your Super Bowl Sunday.
They need to check themselves somtimes.
But this game drove me nuts. Where was the close out on Yogi after the first 3 3 pointers! argh! i was sitting here throwing lent balls at the tv, because i cant afford to throw something that would break the tv!
yeah i have to use those leading up to Easter as well
/s it did give me a chuckle though!
done. If you get up on the guy he blows by you.
I know the perimeter shots were not going down, but the thing that looked really different to me was that we were rarely scoring in transition. It seemed we were setting up from a half court offense more than normal.
I would assume a lot of that is because it was raining 3's on the other end.
Somebody may be able to show it wasn't statistically different from most games, but that's what it seemed like to me.
Nice for Yogi Ferrell that he only had to play at one end of the floor today. That makes it a lot easier to score 27 points and shoulder the entire offensive load for your team.
Completely agree that Stauskas didn't make Ferrell even work on D. What did the guy play? About 38 minutes? What happened to pick and rolls from the wing? It looked like Indiana was switching all the time
Michigan is now something like 5-36 against IU on the road in my lifetime.
Make it 5-37.
I'm going call it now. The regular-season Big Ten championship will come down to the last game of the year. We will lose to Indiana at home and thus lose the Big Ten championship. It is just how this team will work. It doesn't mean we won't go far in the tournament but it does mean we will not win the Big Ten championship
Great conclusion drawn from a sample of one.
How about a conclusion of 16 losses in 17 attempts?
What is that, our record in Bloomington? It's not our record in Ann Arbor, I know that - we beat them at Crisler in 2010, 2011, and 2012, before losing by 1 point last year. Is that a pattern of futility?
I'm guessing you r still at M. Give it a few years and you'll also learn to live with 0-2 against Indiana year in , year out
Nope. I graduated awhile ago. That's some awesome patronizing on your part, but as noted above, we've won three of the last four in Crisler against them (and were a layup away from making it four straight).
I'll be honest, I turned off the tv after the first few minutes of the game. I could tell it was going to be a low scoring, ugly game. IU's plan on offense was to pass the ball around for 25 seconds, then look for a shot. I have no idea what Michigan's plan was, but it didn't seem to involve much movement or passion.
Every year, every decade is the same thing. This isn't the first time an unranked Indiana squad has beaten us in that building. The script never changes. If we were ranked #1 and Indiana was winless on the season, I would STILL predict a loss for us at Assembly.
The refs will always suck but I blame it more on the Michigan factor. Indiana will go back to sucking again now that they're done with us.
Yep. Glad I didn't watch. I never watch games at Assembly. Watching 5 vs 8 isn't fun. Have nothing against the Hoosiers, but when they are playing a home game with that unfair advantage, fuck em and their lame home cooking.
Today we got all the calls and still lost.
How about ATTEMPTING to deny Yogi the ball. How about after he proves he's on a roll we close out on him? How about we clear out and post up the troll with the 6'6" kid? I know he's not a post player, but come on 5'11" to 6'6". And sorry to be so negative but GR3 is killing me as well. Rant over, neg away...
GR3 isn't going anywhere after the season. He lacks mental toughness. Comes and goes as he pleases and takes selfish shots.
Indiana played as well as they could possibly play. Michigan played as badly as they could possibly play. Michigan wins at Crisler by 20.
Saw this coming a mile away...classic letdown game.
Anyway, could be one of those good losses that gets the team back on track.
That is always what happens when we play in Bloomington. I've said from the start that 3 losses wins outright and 4 losses gives us a tie for the conference championship and we will likely have to beat Sparty in Ann Arbor for either of those to happen.
So, one bad game on the road. I din't think we would win the B1G this season but we still have a great chance to win the conference. We'll beat IU at home, all we need to do is shoot better!
Crappy game, but I can't get too upset when we're still 8-1 and tied for first. Entering Gauntlet #1, everyone would have gladly taken that.
100% agree. And I cant complain one bit about the officiating - for every Yogi flog we seemed to get one back. Probably the most balanced game I've seen there to be honest.
We just didnt have it yesterday and predictably, they did. As they always, always, ALWAYS do against us at home. Our road basketball jerseys have the same effect on IU as our road football jerseys do at OSU & MSU.
