...and he didn't make the last free throw. BUT WHATEVER
Win and advance!
Also, he didn't ice it with the FT. Tennessee still had a shot to win. Even if he hit both, he wouldn't have iced anything other than ensuring we wouldn't lose in regulation.
would have still won it.
Expectation on the second free throw is close to meaningless, I think. Missing it makes it more difficult for Tennessee to score at all, but of course then if they do score they win on the spot. It probably doesn't matter much overall. I'd actually prefer to miss, personally, with 2.x seconds left on the clock and a 2 point lead.
Of course, if you want to miss, you may as well miss the first one, so obviously this wasn't the plan.
edit: no, actually, you should make the first, miss the second. This is because of the possibility that you rebound the miss and get fouled. Then you're up two shooting to make it a four point game. Therefore, Stauskas played those FTs perfectly. Go blue.
but I wil take it. GO BLUE!
He missed the second one but whatever POSBANG!
Whew! I'm gonna have a beverage and calm down.
for me. Too nervous to enjoy one during that 2nd half!
No POSbang. And I wish he would have made both free throws
was thinking the miss on the second was better. Doesn't let them get ready on the inbounds and means they can't move the ball up the court with a long pass before the clock starts.
Definitely. They'd have probably gotten a much better look off a made free throw.
But you want style points.
They scored more points than Tennessee. They won the game.
That's a fun new tradition, which I think is fun to see in late game timeouts. Thanks, Mitch!
Deserves a Gritty .gif
He's here for the Posbang!
didn't like it when I did that in the stock room.
that looks like the official gif of orgasms to me...highly appropriate after a big win.
but I used maize and blue for the colors...
Elite 8 feels great!
A win is a win. Bring on someone from the state of Kentucky.
Having...trouble...typing....my fingers are still trembling in fear. So happy/relieved to see Michigan back in the elite 8
Survive and advance
I lover everyone except those refs
My tv monitor took some serious verbal abuse when them refs didn't overturn that possession (so...freakin....obviously...off....of...tennessee...). I would've been scarred had we not won this one.
Lead by 15
Profit/Go to Elite 8!
(Not included--near heart attack!!!)
Bring on the Cats or Cards!
Man. That second half was controlled by the refs. How did they only have like 3 fouls till the end and we were in the bonus. O well. WE WON!
Even if you crawl across the finish line, you still crossed. Elite 8! Go Blue.
NOT perfect, but it works
what the hell was that near meltdown in the last 2 min?
Hell even sparty couldnt muck that up..
Bad gateway, FTW!
morgen die Welt.
So do we want UK or Louisville?
Bring them on!!
After shitting a brick that will require stitches, I am now ready to posbang the shit out of all of you!
have the balls to. Michigan by 2.
Never broke a sweat- knew the boys would pull it out.... GOD DAMMIT INBOUND THE BALL WTFOMG
This .gif is so much better when you position your screen to view simultaneously this and the post above with the team singing The Victors.
Need a stiff drink after that one! Where are my glycerin pills?
By the way, Derrick Walton should get himself a posbang for shooting perfect from the floor and coming up huge all game on the offensive end.
Take care of the ball, son.
He did have some shaky passes to our bigs (which led to a few turnovers). Overall though he had a solid game. He again did good work on the defensive glass.
Never any doubt... cough...
Fuck you Kenpom! Go Blue!
Relief and J mo is a stud
So you're saying Jordan Morgan is of the stud.
Yes, I concur
everyone is talking about that charge, but no one remembers the ball off tennesee that didn't get reversed a few seconds earlier. OH WELL ELITE EIGHT BABY!
Even if we didn't get the charge call, we had the steal. It will be ridiculous if there's any controversy about that call.
the doulbe hack-fest on Levert near the sidelines where TN got the turnover and no foul.
Pos-bang? I need a cardiac resuscitation-bang. Somebody hook me up?!
I advise you to drink heavily.
you didn't croak!
and back in the elite eight....but let's not ever do that again....ever.
Perfect time to open my new bottle of Islay scotch.
Lost a year off my life during that last two minutes.
Jordan Morgan, this shot is for you!!!!!
Ok I got way to excited
Dear god, I love this team, but they sure like to give me agita :)
Just happy to be here!
someone please bang me!!!
Also, fuck you refs, you blind assholes!
was it good for you too?
a bang could be so nerve wracking.
J Mo has your back, so kick ass on Sunday.
Almost choked, but Elite 8 so doesn't even matter! JMo is a baaaaad muthafucka!
Orange you glad we're going to have a Posbang, oh yes we will!
Because a Posbang gives us such a thrill...!
Fuckin sweet! Kate! Go Blue!! WOOOOOO!
Refs + Tenn < Michigan
The Vols played their ss off. We beat a very good team tonight. Cheers!
more like best team ever! #cbssports
When my heart starts beating again I am going to be ecstatic we won!!!!!!
Win and advance.
Great to be a Michigan Wolverine!
Well now I can admit it, my friends and I bought around 20 elite eight tickets before the sweet 16. Wouldn't have dared to put that in writing before the game ended. Bang me.
banged. have a great time
FUCK a few things:
the TN ball-licking announcers
The rest of this growler
My fiancee' (literally)
what the hell is that shit?
This tournament has a severe lack of buzzer beaters. Thank god that last shot landed in the upper deck.
this was our test, and in the most extreme of circumstances we prevailed!
because I was posbanging my head against a wall during the last couple minutes!
I hope you have a ball swear sandwich for dinner you ass!
We've moved from death to backboards to death to inbounding.
I feel like I aged 20 years watching those last 2 minutes.
This game was close to the Akron win for me. I'm glad we won, but now let's just sort of pretend it didn't happen and we got a bye from the 2nd Round to the Elite 8
to do much pos-banging. Whew!
I'm happy, but i turned the game off after the TERRIBLE missed call on the first monitor review. I didn't want to break anything expensive. I was prepared for one of the all time screw jobs at the end there. Glad to see we didn't get the game taken away from us.
Never ever write shit before it happens!!! And Nik isn't exactly automatic from the line either
GO BLUE!!!! Coach B is a grteat coach. J-Mo was a beast. We won!
I know it's been a while since Michigan has made the second weekend of the tournament, but last time it happened (whenever that was), we had a close win in the Sweet 16 and then a blowout in the Elite 8. Let's do that again
I will have to let my mind slow down from its million thoughts per minute pace in the final moment, but later on...why not indeed....
Levert and Stauskas were absent tonight. Refs decided to keep it close the whole 2nd half.
Good guys scored more points, even if every talking head wanted UT.
Vols, go home. Blue, play another!
The talking heads were in huge favor of Tenn in second half. Did they bet money on them? lol
No more days off for Caris!
So is this going to be the norm for us in the Sweet 16? Nerves getting destroyed before eventually winning by 2.
I guess that means on Sunday we get to play like we did against Florida last year. Please???
Never understood having your smallest player inbound the ball
I'm over it. Bring on UK or Louisville! Fuck em both!
12-1 all time in Sweet 16 games. best record of any team in teh S16
A Michigan fan was going to be so stressful. Go Blue!!
Now if they can have a quick inbounds clinic tomorrow to prepare for Sunday...
bang bang bang
I just noticed that one can bang themselves.
Did you just turn twelve?
Then it gets really interesting...
I love living in Tennessee.
S-E-C! S-E-C! S-E-C!
Way to persevere through the mugging that allowed Tennesee to get back in the game. Thank you J Mo!
I'm still alive! After puking and aging a bit I am here! March On
drink. a lot.
who would have guessed Elite 8? I know I had my doubts. Go Blue!
Thank you Baby Jesus!!!
Kentucky and Louisville both had a pregame meeting and agreed that Michigan sucks and can't jan with their athletes.
Buy now of eBay/stub hub, or buy at the game Sunday? Thoughts/ opinions?
I will always and forever refer to it as the Great Eight.
I'm so glad we won so I can go back and bask in that first half. Man that was a clinic offensively. Keep it going Blue!!
Never thought I would be excited to say that
Just watched the game from my phone at work
What was the final stat on 3s?
I still can't sit down, what an insane mission.
To the weekend.... Next victim.
Good thing Morgan works as a middle name because I'm going to have to name my next kid Jordan Morgan.
I'll take it...but lets not do that again
Imagine the shock of people who were betting on it..
Look who's still dancin'!
See ya' Sunday!
Excuse me while I go have a heart attack now. Go Blue
For the bang!
I need to be banged!
The season continues!
Got my Sweet Sixteen shirt on Thursday in the mail.
Looks like I'll be getting an Elite Eight one next week, as well.
Maybe some more shirts....
Whew... thank-you Michigan.
Just got done watching the game (DVR'd it) - that game almost killed me. My heart still hasn't slowed down yet.
Now rooting for a 6 overtime game for Louisville-Kentucky.
extremely loud when UM scored big baskets. I had to watch it on TV and it seemed like a large UM crowd was there tonight.
stop pacing and watch the sparty Virginia game with my bottle of Becks and get a good laugh if they lose. Go Cavs!!!
Boom!!!!!! Elite 8. Down with Sparty
Getting Blasted go Virginia.
The last minute of that game probably cost me several years of my life. But it was worth it.
Too late for the survive and advance posbang? Never a doubt.
Now, let's go Hoos!
... that the memory of this game will be the late charge call. After the monster game he had, would have royally sucked if the play a possession or two earlier, where he fumbled the ball out of bounds, had been his last contribution. Especially since he was dunking home from those kind of drive and dishes all game (I sense a Beilein plan there).
In the spirit that an excellent MGoBlog diarist recently wrote, "remember those two consecutive NCAA tournaments that Jordan Morgan drew late-game charges against teams in orange to help "M" advance?
503 503 503 I gave out 14 503's Hope you guys appreciate them, it took forever.
Bring on the Wildcats! I can't wait for the Calipari to coach against his polar opposite.
last night - exhausted (my day starts 4:30AM to hit the gym), BUT I came back this morning and posbanged every one of you late-to-the-party MO FOs because that's how I roll.
Happy Elite 8 Saturday everyone!
