michigan won at indian in overtime for the 1st time in 20 years
and were down by 20 in the 2nd half
Tonight's performance is not something to be proud of. This IU team was awful. Did you see the amount of mistakes Michigan made in the last 15 seconds? Grady stepping out of bounds, and the by the grace of God they were not called for a technical for having 6 guys on the court. The only reason M won is cause Indiana can't shoot free throws. Michigan truly lived and died by the 3 tonight. If anything, be grateful but don't be happy, this was a truly pathetic performance.
OMG, OMG, OMG !!!!!!!
How in any sane world can anyone complain about any win by any M men's b'ball team since the Fab5 (who, of course, never existed).
Get a grip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We F'ing WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Come on man! Get up for these kids! I am proud.
That 2004 win over MSU was nothing to be proud of either. Our run defense got gashed over and over and the only reason we won was because Henne threw it up to Braylon like 15 times. Oh, and if Stanton hadn't gotten hurt, we would've been blown out.
This year's win over Wisconsin was also a pathetic performance. We turned it over a bunch and even let Wisky drive all the way down the field at the end of the game. The only reason we won was because they didn't know how to line up properly on their 2 pt. conversion.
apples and oranges
M plays poorly in first half - check
Opponent plays well in first half - check
M plays drastically better in second half - check
In second half, Opponent has some good moments but doesn't play up to it's first half level - check
Clutch performances by certain M players combined with mistakes and missed opportunities by Opposing players - check
Dramatic down-to-the-wire M victory - check
Some fans who only focus on the negatives and don't know how to just have fun and appreciate the moment (Example: Overheard walking out of the 2005 Manningham-PSU game: "We're still only 4-3.") - check
1995 was the last time they won in assembly hall...but hell who's counting and who cares...as long as they win I am happy.
Technically they said win in overtime for the first time in 20 years. That may or may not be true.
We'll take it. When these guys get another year older, look out!
We are a second-half team now. UCLA, Duke, Savannah State, Illinois, and now Indiana. Of course, it'd be nice if we wouldn't dig holes for ourselves, but that's part of being a young team and learning how hard you have to play all the time.
Harris, Sims and Lucas-Perry to come out strong from the get-go on future road games to stay in it. Grady did his imitation of Dan Orlovsky by running out of bounds in the last 20 seconds. Luckily Indiana was not awarded a safety.
I agree with Chreeshan- this was not a work of art but any win in Bloomington is a big win.
This team seems to learn from their mistakes so we will see.
It counts as a W. Thats all that matters to me.
Michigan did not almost get a tech. The ref hadn't even handed the ball to the player. There can be no tech until the ref hands the ball over.
