Michigan goes against FSU in the best remaining game in the winners bracket. Thoughts etc. go here.
Also, I'm not showing a stream on firstrowsports. Anyone know of any streams?
the stream is titled: College Basketball 2013 Puerto Rico Tip-off: Second Semi-Final.
However, this isn't working for me. Thoughts?
Edit: Good now, thanks.
Hold a grudge, much?
Commentator 1: FSU might be the biggest team in the country.
Dackich: And they're big too!
is watchespn giving an error code for anyone else?
No, working good on Charter
just kidding it is working now
Levert NO chance there.
I'd rather him be in there over Jordan "I have pans for hands" Morgan
or we'd be up 6
Sloppy series there..
How do they miss that travel.
Walton sometimes needs to just take a step back and slow down. He'll adjust the more he plays, but it's always a little frustrating.
I think the coaches want the team to run when they get rebounds.
we will gladly put your bigs in foul trouble
Ojo on FSU is a large man.
I can't really see anything Irvin is doing to warrant playing time.
we need another big in the game
This pace of play is not favoring Michigan.
Defense is just below average right now. Everywhere
You serious Clark?
But Michigan looks terrible right now
I think it is much too early to make B1G record projections.. It's the 5th game of the season.
There are 18 games in the B1G season. Also, the notion that we'll go .500 is just a tad farfetched.
FSU seems too tall at this point in the game. When the three's aren't falling the offense looks lost.
Can't shoot, can't defend, is allergic to rebounding...
Kinda off topic. Is this tourney even worth it to put on/go... No one has been in attendance any game
The answer is yes. I would rather be in Puerto Rico right now.
is very long and athletic at all positions.
McGary is my hero
Spike! looking good
Those back to back plays
Spike to McGary for the slam
McGary to Spike for the reverse
will be one of the best back to back plays this year. I want those two plays .gif'd together. Awesome!
Someone needs to put a firm elbow/shoulder into their skinny ass center
Let's GO Morgan..Big minutes here.
Offense seems to run smoother with Spike on the floor over Walton to me. This is only the second game I have seen though. Irvin doesn't look all that impressive either.
I agree with you.
Think of Bunny Colvin when they see FSU's head coach?
an entire career of not being able to finish. Love the guy, but sheesh.
GRIII has not looked like a first round draft pick so far this year
A division 1 player this year
There are 1,000s of players that can make highlight dunks. GR3 gets abused on the defensive end and still hasn't shown the ability to create his own shot. Why someone would use a draft pick on him yet a first rounder based on his play is beyond me. His potential is sky high, but eventually that needs to translate to production on the court.
Are you kidding me?
I don't think it would be possible for Morgan to go up for a dunk any slower than he did on that last play.
if our threes aren't falling we're in big trouble against FSU.
Against about 1/2 the teams we'll play this year. That's who we are. Fortunately, we'll usually be able to heat up from three even after bad stretches. But if not, we're in real trouble.
we're in more trouble against FSU than most other teams because most other teams don't play this pace and can't clog the lane like these guys.
Another stellar game from GR3.
Jesus make wide open shots. Not gonna win this game if they don't.
Missing open shots, and not getting back in transition.
No defense is putting us behind and then we're throwing up too many bad shots trying tom catch up
Give me horford-McGary-spike-Walton-Nik. We need size and playmakers out there right now
Or maybe just some better on ball defense in general
Rims are not being friendly to us..damn it all
Oh. These guys are good. How are they not ranked? Everybody stay calm. Lot of time left.
Exactly. I'm being a bit critical myself and we aren't playing well. But damn. Remember the horrible games/losses last year on the hard wood?? This is time for learning and teaching
Well this is upsetting. Defense looks lost. Offense looks lost.
of a very long year in Michigan sports.
GRIII's disappearing act is second to none.
Someone put a mirror in front of his nose to see if he's still breathing.
Will we ever beat a quality opponent this year in any sport?
Our defense looks pretty lousy.
Shots aren't falling.
Defense might not change too much but shooting has to improve.
We don't have any identity and guys don't know their roles.
It'll come, but they're going to be absolutely frsutrating to watch until Late Jan/Early Feb.
Oh come on now. If there anything we've learned it's to never count out Beilien.
I think they'll be fine. Just a team that gets "hot" at the right time.
Truthfully, until GRIII asserts himself and grows as a lottery type player...this team is 2 rounds and out.
If GRIII touches on his potential...this is an Elite 8 team without question.
Their bench is destroying ours.
And GR3 is having a horrible game so far.
On FSU may actually be the incredible hulk.
Levert is an NBA player. Not this year, and probably not even next b/c of his size, but he's going to the NBA. He has the skills and agression needed on both ends of the court. Another incredible Beilein pickup.
With out Burke it looks like this team will go back to just chucking threes. If the shots are falling Michigan might be able to beat any team in the country. If not, well.....yeah.
not sure I've heard tthat word in a basketball context since the 70s. Thanks for the memory.
Are OK. FSU will cool off eventually. I think we will go big out this timeout. We need to keep it around 6-8 by halftime. Cheer up everybody.
Id like to try two bigs. But do I have confidence in another big besides Mitch...?
Can we please start feeding McGary? He's the best player out there
NOw that was a transition bucket.
Mitch McGary is the leader and heart of this team. There is no question about it.
Mitch is MOTORING!
I'm just glad Ojo is so raw that he really can't do much offensively for FSU
Mitch is so much fun to watch.
Is my favorite basketball player of all time.
Without him Michigan would be losing by 20+.
Well most teams would if they lost one of the top players in the country.
Its amazing how different it is listening to Dakich call a Michigan game this year as compared to last year.
I've noticed it too. I guess he's gotta cheer for his sons team right
Wow, the only thing more pathetic than our half court offense this game is this thread. You guys are some seriously depressed pessimistic people.
It's November. Take a deep breath.
It's like people don't remember last year when we were stumbling badly at the end of the year, almost lost to a terrible penn state team and bowed out easily in the big ten tourny. Everyone on this blog said we would go out early in the tourney, I don't think that happened. Two games doesn't define a season or a team, especially a team this young without a proven leader yet.
That sounds like an accurate depiction.
And agression GRIII was suppose to show this year. Looks like the same playet from last yr
Agree. I hate to pile on as there's enough people here calling him out but it's the same player as last year with a bit better shot (debateable, of course). There's things he brings like getting Boards that others can't at times but he cannot create for shit; there's times he's a wasted player out there, as bad as that sounds.
So many wide open bricks.
Why can't we shoot at all right now..start hot but now can't get anything..
GRIII mad skillz there
Irritating - we miss a wide-open look from 3 and then they make an NBA-ranger.
Well, that's a frustrating last minute. Force them into a junk possession and they hit a long three, we miss a couple open looks.
6 point swing at the end of the half there, Walton misses a wide open 3 and their guy hits a contested one from 25 feet. They're getting the breaks right now.
Florida State is chucking up bullshit left and right. This will not continue. I'm not saying Michigan is going to win but FSU will not keep making these ridiculous 27-footers.
What a shitty performace.
So many awesome fans in this thread.
Meh they won't keep up 60 percent from three. Keep feeding Mitch and we can pull this back
In their right mind would take GRIII in the draft?
But then again, you said, "in their right mind..."
I wanna see Stauskas working with McGary in the second half on offense
Does GR3 still play on Michigan? He is non-existant against any team that has a pulse.. I guess i should of expected it.. Same way as last year, no improvement.. Can't believe people talked about him leaving for the draft
So fucking reliant on 3-pointers. We have guys with the ability to go to the hoop, yet we never do. Fucking brilliant.
Has as many rebounds as Walton. What a joke. He's supposed to have improved his ball handling and shooting but I see the same player as last year.
Reading this thread you would think Michigan is down by 40 with 2 minutes left in the game.
Michigan effective FG% - 43.33%
Michigan off. rebound rate - 26.09%
Michigan def. rebound rate - 75.00%
Michigan A/T ratio - 2.25
Florida St. effective FG% - 61.11%
FSU off. rebound rate - 25.00%
FSU def. rebound rate - 73.91%
FSU A/T ratio - 2.00
I think I'm done with the message board until such time as moderating returns. I'll read The original message, but the comments man...the comments have to go.
You're a smart man, Matt-Who-Wears-Boots.
Why can't we shoot..
Needs to wakeup right now.
Wow. What an awful call.
That is a terrible terrible call
This officiating is complete and utter fuckballs.
Refs suck. Water is wet. NCAA BASKETBALL LOVE IT!
Call a fair game refs, terrible sequence.
This is bullshit
out of the game please
They can drop a shot in over anyone and then Walton tries to shoot a jumper in the face of a 7'3'' player
Fuck this team.
Yeah; go ahead and show yourself the door. You know where it is; you just walked in.
Don't let the door....
Wow. You must be a seriously unhappy person. It's 5 games into the season and we're really young and lost 2 first rounders from last year. Relax man
He just looks lost.
Regardless of missing a lot of shots. There is no excuse for piss poor defense
The team isn't as good this year. Stop whining like little bitches and deal with it.
Walton needs to SLOW. THE. HELL. DOWN.
Walton is making some bad decisions.
But we're going to struggle like this against length and athleticism all yr...
But I will say the these refs are full of shit. Either call it tight or don't u can't pick and choose. I have yet to see a well officiated game this year
Really starting to not like Robinson as a player. He looks indifferent and frankly pretty lazy.
What a stupid comment. You obviously have not played or coach basketball at any organized level.
Plays zero defense.
Ray Liotta would be proud, I need some 1800 right now after watching these refs let FSU flail their arms all over the place with no calls
you don't see him. he doesn't do anything.
Should bench hi. Seriously. If you are going to do nothing than do nothing....on the bench.
We really miss Trey's penetration. Even against 7 footers he would drive it deep in the paint and be a legit threat to put it up as well as kick it out.
is the moving picks by their bigs, just horrendous
All the people drawing negative conclusions about this team need to keep in mind that this team is actually younger overall than last year's team, which was pretty young to begin with. This team will get better.
Nice touch Mitch
McGary by far the best player on our team.
Can McGary please touch the ball on every possession?
Refs minus every point ever
The whistle AFTER the ball doesn't go in HAS to go. It's one of the most frustrating calls in sports.
FSU is the better team right now, but these refs fucking blow
Wow what does that ref think he sees that the ref below doesn't?
Dakich is so annoying.
He trolls us a lot less now that he's "in the family".
Made free throws are a beautiful thing
Can't remember what those feel like
Not just a shooter. Whoa!
That's what people think GR3 should do when he drives. Or can do
into their lead more, D up boys
Why can't Glenn do that?
Light it up!
Dakich: I'm not going to bore you talking about how he is actually athletic, but he's not just a shooter.
Not just a catch and shoot guy. Drink!
Back to single digits.
Florida State is a pretty darn good team, this is obvious. However, they will lose some games to some bad teams this season when they aren't making these complete horsefuck shots.
-1 for "darn" +5 for "horsefuck"
Which give us.... McGary
Not if those are the shots they take and practice
GRIII has to be more aggressive
Ok; I've been watching GR3 the last few possessions. The guy is not hustling. Not closing out hard; not cutting hard, standing around. You'd think with all the scouts in the building he'd try and do something...
ass dude of theirs is getting away with a lot of shit, like traveling, moving picks, flailing arms, etc., just bull shit
This on ball D has to get so much better! I mean Horford gets beat by a slow ass center off the dribble and gets everyone rotating on their heels. These types of things can't happen, especially when not only the great athletes are beating us
Clever name, ass.
Stauskas is starting to get some confidence. Good to see. Needed someone else to step up besides McGary.
with the ignant around-the-back pass
MCGARY AND STAUSKAS
WONDER TWINS ACTIVATE
STAUSKAS!!! 6 point game
In billiards that would be considered SLOP....but it's all gooood
Stauskas is a leader. He's stepping up this season.
was really lazy on defense there again
do something useful mayne.
i might be taking a year off from sports. the officials are horrible in this game
Nice drive by Irvin
Nice take by IRvin....that's what we've been waiting for from him.
Nice play from Irvin. Very good to see.
He still surprises Ds nad me.
that's all you can do...
This is Michigan basketball
Feeling it now! Spike makes it a point game.
Big Fuck walked!
is TURNT UP
that was a strange looking shot by Nik
and then FSU does at th other end?
The Michigan Difference...I mean bias.
FSU getting all the ticky tack calls
its funny how a team that is build like a feather is the one commiting all the fouls
WHY EVEN HAVE REFEREES
JUST FLIP A COIN EVERY 15 SECONDS TO DETERMINE IF A FOUL SHOULD BE CALLED
OH WAIT THAT IS ACTUALLY THE CURRENT SYSTEM
There was no foul. At all.
Yea that was phantom phoul as phuck
Ah...Mitch needs to improve from the stripe. Need two points here but him on the line is 1 at best.
these refs, that earlier sequence was fucking BS and Mitch gets bloodied and the foul is on GRIII? say what?
Bless his heart, but Irvin just isn't ready for prime time yet. Good thing he's getting experience now though.
this team will be lucky to finish .500 if they keep this up. I guess there's always the NIT.
I'm sure you can find one more suitable to your demands.
WTF....was Caris doing there.
Just really poor.
LULZ coast to coast
McGary goes end-to-end. So beautiful.
They make one more fucking floater
Jesus...nothing called in all that mess yet FSU would have been on the line
Not going to catch up with Irvin on the court
Levert isn't impressing me at all.
Dammit LeVert. Settle down. Two terrible turnovers.
Too much dribbling from Levert.
Very much so
HOW DID STAUSKAS DO THAT??
playing awful right now
freaked the layup
worst refs ever
THAT FOUL IS FUCKING BULLSHIT!
Oh for fucks sakes. Nice no call on the travel too.
THESE FUCKING OFFICIALS
Caris dribbling scares me every time
In fucking credible
Are you kidding me?!! In no universe is that a foul
This game just doesn't count. Not after that BS.
Great officiating tonight huh?
calls jump ball then calls foul after second thought? sounds about right.
What the fuck? Looked like a jumpball to me.
Holy crap that was over the top on the rebound. Horrible reffing.
That was a horrible foul call. That one call will decide his game
Seriously fuck these refs, this isn't even fair.
refs can kiss my ass, fucking assholes
Mitch is getting screwed by the officials at both ends.
So how many times are the refs going to make a horrible call that stops Michigan's momentum? Just curious...
McGary has made himself a target with the refs, sort of like Suh.
I know when I watch basketball, I want the refs to insert themselves in the game as much as possible. After all, this isn't about the ten people on the court in colored uniforms. It's really about the guys in the black and white stripes. What a f---ing joke.
Coach B should just put in all the bench to get them experience. NO way this crew is going to let Michigan make a comeback.
is an absolute liability on defense. his defensive potential is hypothetical at best.
GR3 hustle play sighting!!!
No call out of any of that, again..MY GODDDD
Nice hard play by Walton!
A little hustle from GR3!
Got to get the ball in Stauskas's hands, not GRIII.
Wait...if McGary's jump ball was actually a foul on him...how was that not a Technical on FSU? I give up
It looked like a flagrant. Was he even trying to make a play on the ball or just trying to kill Walton.
This Ojo guys is a terror.
He should be playing football. Imagine him at DE or TE
Fuckin refs, man.
thanks KBLOW. I missed it.
Got us the win last week vs NW!
they didn't take into account that we were playing against both FSU and the refs.
It's because he's white isn't it?
I think the notion about target on McGary is right yet guys like Draymond Green and Anthony Davis are just untouchable by the officials
Cold from 3 and make-it-up- as-you-go officiating cost us today. But mostly the 3pt'ers not falling.
Fuck this game but it's been entertaining and is going to be a good lesson for March.
Let's watch our guys fight till the end.
Mitch McGary breathes
it becomes another foul
refs calling bullshit
FINALLY THEY CALL THE TRAVELING
basketball is the biggest flawed officiating sport. no other sport has their outcome affected more by officials then basketball. need robot officials no bias or hidden agenda
called a travel on them
I can't believe FSU only has 5 threes in this game.
I'm pretty sure FSU is tired too
is Ojo actually an Uruk-hai from Mordor? just asking.
Make free throws. Way too many misses today.
Status las is shooting free throws badly to start this season
3 ball here...let's go!
FTs are just killing us. Come on.
Bad free throw shooting like last year...needs to be fixed asap.
GRIII is alive! Big time 3 from him.
This is doable if we can just get hot from 3
Beilein now goes back to man-man post-timeout. C'mon boys!
Indeed. But we wont
i want to say the only peole on the floor getting paid to be pros are the refs. And they are acting like amatures
havinf the possession arrow in this game doesn't mean much with these refs
Let's go blue!
Jesus let him ride him another 10 meters before I call the foul...GReat defense!!
Huge turnover. Get points on this possession.
Great steal by Levert. Really dumb reach-in foul by FSU with us in the bonus.
your FT's Glenn
I have no faith in GR3 to make these..just none
I like your faith
I'll be here all night
