My biggest complaint is the numbers...without contrast, u can't read them at all. Any first grader would know this.
Game Thread? Game Thread.
Has Horford played at all today? McGarry is kind-of out-of-shape and needs rest and given that Morgan is not even close to 100%, where is Jon?
Horford started, played about 6-7 total min I'd guess
Why are tomatoes beating bananas by 1?
We've all been very bad.
must learn to make the extra pass for us to be successful in the coming weeks.
Because it looks like he got the ban hammer....finally.
Whatever talk Beilein has with the guys during the half, I hope it works. We can't afford to go out and lay another egg against OSU, especially when they are not even as talented as us. Yeah it'd probably ruin our hopes for a Big Ten title, but more importantly in my opinion, I think we're all pretty tired of hearing about how we always lose to OSU.
household with Ohio fans running up my sleeves, yes, it is extraordinarily annoying... and angering.
I sill love the shit out of that ad.
Is awful when Burke can't penetrate. Between craft's hand checking and burke's lack of size, it seems osu has the perfect answer for stopping us. Very frustrating match up to watch
Can get away from us if we lose tonight, especially with @ Wisconsin and @ State next two games. Better buckle down in second half and get this win.
There hasn't been too much ball movement. We need to spread it around and get everyone touches.
I think Beilein should put Burke and Spike both out there in the second half. Let Spike run the offense and have Burke play off guard.
Maybe it's the ESPN thing? We've been playing horrid on ESPN.
Vitale is a tit.
They can have him...
Ok dicky v I officially don't like you anymore.
All of you people who for some reason like him, can promptly go away
It's official, Mitch McGary is my favorite player on this team.
Getting great play from Stauskas and McGary tonight -- need the last of the Three usketeers to step up
Every single time we play OSU Burke tries way too hard to prove to OSU that they were wrong for not taking him and every time it ends badly for us. Just play your game.
and Craft crawls up his ass and shuts him down!
WHY ARE YOU BRICKING LONG TWOS????????????????????
GRIII has been incredibly dissappointing as of late..
where the fuck is the charge, he's throwing elbows all over the place (i agree with the guy who yelled)
That might get the GRIII Machine moving
I get a feeling GR3 is nervous because his dad is watching him...and he gets a dunk as I type that.
FOR FUCKS SAKE
BULL SHIT ON THAT CALL
Who did they call for a foul? I can't tell because neither of them fouled him
Box the dumbass out GRIII
Our defense needs some work.
It's official. Vitale loves him some Buckeye nuts.
Okay that's a good shot but honestly a terrible posession.
No charge? Fuck you ref
We get a goddamn turnover, and promptly let the ball sail out of bounds. Great. Just great.
FOR ME TO POOP ON!!!!!!
23 minutes and 1 foul. That must be near a record.
Damn it all!
They should look at that and see if he actually got that off...
Oh for fuck's sake. Did he shot-put that?
God clearly hates us.
WTF was that. The ugliest shot ever goes in. WTF
That should never happen. Trey wake the fuck up man. That was lazy as hell.
I really hate Aaron Craft. Never have I hated an opposing basketball player like this before.
Buckeyes got that horseshoe up their ass tonight.
Can they review that?
Apparently the shot clock is now 36 seconds.
Way to go refs shot clock
He didn't even come close you dipshit refs
Can't they review that?
They have now given Ohio five points...that three and the earlier offensive goal tending no call.
Will they review that craft 3 that wasn't?
I don't think they can review it now.
Refs blow as usual in big ten
Home cooking? Not here apparently.
Mute now engaged. No more Vitale. Try it sometime.
What is the purpose of replay if you don't use it?
These refs are fucking incompetent.
These refs suck. Obvious offensive goaltending in first half. Obvious late shot by Craft.
Why aren't there lights on the backboard for the shot clock?
Even when we win it feels like we're lucky to have escaped
I think they are going to review this during the timeout
You can't review a shot clock violation
OSU getting to about 90% of the 50/50 balls, crashing the glass, boxing out. We arelosing now b/c of the little, hustle-type stuff.
If they can review 3's at the timeouts they should do that one, right?
So much for home cookin in the Big Ten
No home cooking for Michigan. Competitive balance. Home cooking for Ohio and IU are still OK.
Unless it's end of the half/game where the light comes on the board...I don't think it's reviewable.
I think it's like delay of game in football. You have that .5 seconds where the clock hits zero and the refs look to the clock.
Only difference is you can HEAR a shot clock. So I guess it is bullshit. Carry on.
This game has been as infuriating as the first one
I'm just... wow.
The refs reviewed Stauskas' toe-on-the-line shot against IU during a commercial break even though the actual shot happened about a minute of game time before the break. Can't they do that here?
Based on rule 7)a)iii) -- we always get screwed.
So when will this dubstep fad end???
Refs boning us hard on no-calls
who actually has more calls go against them at home than on the road, very frustrating...
which I get. But, we are doing this to ourselves right now. Need some energy and hustle.
Dman that was a great steal
I'll take that as no review...fucking hell
He plays tough defense, he doesn't talk crap....he just plays hard.
I feel like if you hate Craft you have to hate Novak.
I'd take Craft any day of the week...not over Burke, but he'd be welcome to come off the bench.
PASS THE BALL
Our offense is such CRAP
Burke is pissing me off.
Relax. Do you want Spike in the game?
We aren't catching many breaks right now. But we aren't exactly showing that we deserve them either (not making our breaks). Plus, our on ball defense is still shit.
this team needs a TO and a kick in the ass from coach
We are making this offensively challanged team look pretty damn good today.
Did you hear about the turtle in china? Two packs a day..
OMG EVERYONE! STOP TRAFFIC!!
We passed the ball! MOVEMENT! We got a good shot (and got fouled)
Are the refs sure that was in the act of shooting?
make your fucking free throws
And then misses the free throw...
Please brick more FTs. kthxbai.
Offense is stagnant. Not good.
It will be truly frustrating if we lost by 3.
F'ing kidding me make the damn free throws
I wouldn't be opposed to putting in LeVert or playing two bigs and sitting Robinson for awhile.
The only issue is Caris was getting worked on the defensive end in the first half as well.
Kenpom help us!
GRIII looks absolutely lost at both ends of the court.
Losers complain about refs.
Winners get all the calls.
Do they realize this game is in Crisler?
Wow...horrible foul call.
Seriously, I'm at work, and losing my mind right now, trying not to scream out in anger. Missing FTs, no hustle, no emotion, bad calls.
I'm gonna stick around until the next TV timeout and see if the situation improves. If it gets worse or stays relatively similar, I'm out.
Not because I'm not gonna be dying hoping they win, but because I'm way too stressed out for this shit.
Thanks for the warning. Don't know how we'll get by without you.
From number 1 in the nation to perhaps losing 4 straight. Unfortunately, that's possible and maybe even probable.
hey ref...FUCK OFF
What the fuck was that shit? The rip Hamilton leg kick????
Getting hosed by the refs in our own building!
Thats a foul?!?
Gievn what Craft has been doing all night that call was unreal.
Damnit, they need to start playing with more intensity and focus. There are still waaay to many plays happening that are simply hustle and focus. They get lazy with the ball too much as well. If this does not change, I can easily see this turning into a 4 game losing streak
And that call just sucked.
is a funny mfer
I'm not even mad. That's like a YouTube worth joke call.
Got to be kidding me...
It's like we're the road team.
What the fuck.
go ahead and bitch about the refs. Un-flipping-real.
wtf is going on?
GRob, any inside game, 'crept for Mitch, THjr, our rebounding, our defense?
Ok I don't blame refs ever, but that was fucking BS.
LOL there's no way he would miss that bad so obviously a foul. That's where they decide to start calling things? Jesus Christ
Make up call.
These refs fucking suck
The offense looks so fucking lost
This OSU team is just good at slowing down a game and grinding it out defensively. It is really annoying to watch.
Fuck I'm so sick of watching every Michigan sports team lose to OSU. These past ten years have been hard.
5-27 in football/basketball makes me wonder why the national media still calls it a rivalry.
CALL A G-DDAMN FOUL YOU STUPID REFEREES
bet on osu
I've never seen a white person that could mug someone as good as craft.
Clear as can be no call foul by craft
Vitale also needs to stop talking. Craft is a very good defender, but they are getting away with murder on the defensive side this game.
No, still shitty.
Is there a reason why they are going to so much 1 on 1 and trying to beat 2-3 players to the basket? Burke needs to start controlling the flow of the game and getting people involved.
We need the get McGary back in the game.
Also GR3 needs to get his head out of his ass.
or away? This is just not fun.
Burke hurting us on d now
So many games this season have been fun to watch. This is not one of them. This seems a lot like the two losses so far. Hopefully, that changes.
close out you lazy asses
I didn't think I could hate Ohio any more. I was wrong.
burke plays like a shorter, less athletic russell westbrook...in a very bad way
What a terrible response to the Indiana game. This team has no heart.
What is up with Trey versus Ohio State? Is it Craft? Some kind of heroball thing because he's from Columbus?
Prob a combination of both.
Was Horford gonna shoot that 3?
Browns, Wolverines, EMU...I picked the right teams for maximum viewing misery. Just the way I like it.
is completely dictating the terms. This a mucky game.
Thank you, Timmy.
Fuck yeah THJ!
We cannot fucking rebound. It's official.
GR3 needs to learn to box out. A few times now his man has gotten the rebound and put back.
Why can't we grab any boards?
Is there a rule against boxing out on the backside?
One day we won't get beat like a mule on the glass. And on that day I will smile.
Timmy is just feeling it.
Timmay came to play
Rebounding team in the Big 10.
I'm starting to believe out success against Ohio is a curse.
OSU sold their souls to the devil...for tattoos and cars.
the rich people stand up for that!
Great help defense from Horford right there.
Wow a 50/50 call that went our way
I think Denards been hittin the bottle tonight.
THJ out of the woodwork!!
Denard is our good luck charm. Once they started showing him, we started hitting shots.
Some of you and your posts are fucking comical. "this team has no heart". To quote Dickie V, are you serious?
It is the same posters every game that question the heart of this team.
I never questioned their heart. I merely pointed out their shortcomings in shot selection, rebounding, and defensive efficiency.
BEAT OHIO... THE TIME IS NOW!!!!!
Michigan is ready to go on a run here.
Need Denard JPG / GIF 2013 edition
Deshaun Thomas' left hand. He spins that way every time on the low block.
Well.... being down one means that we're probably not gonna claw back to tie the game, and that's a good thing
Good. NO TIES!
Thomas will be getting gassed. Playing way more than his average.
Toughen up defense and get the rebound, and we'll win.
Where is Mitch McG?
Line up another three for Timmy. He's on fire!
He is so annoying!
GRII where's your M gear?
how would you guys compare our homecourt advantage vs other arenas?
Court adv = above average
Crowd adv = could use some work
Yes Indiana was much much louder
Are you serious? Like 4 fouls total on Ohio all night and that's "above average?"
GRIII has his daddy's ears
Wish he had his daddys game
So I didn;t have to listen to Vitale and THJ hits two 3s.
It's weird only if it doesn't work. Oh and plus, Denard, too.
Wow, the Glenn's looked exactly alike in their college year(s).
Yessir. Feed the beast
Big time Timmy Jim.
Just keep giving it to THJ.
FEED. HIM. MORE.
No one but Tim Hardaway should shoot until he misses.
Are jerseys may have blinded them.
why not right?!?!!!
good to see Big Dog in the stands supporting his son! Loved seeing Hardaway Sr., but this is the first I've seen the Big Dog himself.
wow. Now play defense
Dude, Mitch. Love ya but your fade isn't on tonight.
I think the refs missed a foul on Burke, on that shot
The refs have missed about 10 calls.
post play is not on that list.
I hate complaining about the refs but dammit these refs f'ing SUCK
I feel like every Ohio State possession is either a turnover or points
And we quickly give up the lead. This is the danger zone
McGary needs to work on using his right hand in the post
Who has been on Ross this game? He is owning us.
I think THJr or Stauskas.
Thomas owns him. Understand he is a freshman, but he needs to reach down and find some willpower on defense.
Aware that Deshaun is left handed?
Gonna seriously break something if OSU wins by 3 or less, on the 3 by Craft that was a shot clock violations
Yup just checked, 10 out of the last 12 Ohio State possessions have resulted in points or a turnover.
Don't forget that OSu has a 3pt basket that shouldn't have been allowed
and an offensive goal tend. Refs gave Ohio five points.
can this team go on a damn run?
THJ you the fucking man!
No one else shoots until THJ misses.
He's on fire!!!!
Jesus Tapdancing Christ.
Stupid Horford foul.
Our defense is pathetic. Absolutely abysmal.
DEFENSE IS ATROCIOUS!
Here's an idea: after we score, try and stop the other team from scoring
Score a lot. Give up more.
Jesus everytime we take the lead we go ahead and give it back on an easy layup. Play defense!!!!
And we are wasting this streak by THJ by not playing fucking defense. Seriously.
Excited, we have to play defense.
Shoot the J. Shoot it.
Wow. Our D will not get us through these next games without a loss unless there's a serious change in attitude and effort
Softer than baby buster at a Kenny g concert..
fucking WNBA foul. If you're going to foul, FOUL!
Is it Adidas' uniform designer's goal to mask any identifiable information about the players or schools on their jerseys?
Did you just turn on the game because we got all the complaining out of the way in the first couple min.
"Deshaun Thomas is making a home in the paint again tonight." Missing 4 of 5 shots there. Stfu.
Mother of god!!!! Fck
GRIII tried to do too much. Should have passed it out.
Big puppy playing like a little kitty.
CAN GR3 DO ANYTHING???
Smith traveled..no call. Then Ohio hits a 3
imagine how bad this game would be in TH3 didnt randomly turn into Reggie Miller
Somebody else touched on it. This team is a pillow case. A cute, fluffy dog. Awesome to look at, not tough at all.
when our defense is pure crap. am i watching rich rod ball or something?
Horford seriously blows
We got shots blocked around the rim so f'ing much. It's infuriating.
We can't make a lay-up.
And fuck you Dick.
Oh darn, Matta thinks the refs missed one...
Aww they missed a call for Ohio state...what about the 11 they missed for Michigan
I don't understand why we don't ever do this.
Garbage and shut the fuck up vitale that was a flop.. Kind of like your last coaching gig.
This is a terrible defensive effort.
Arrrrgh, the 5 pt deficit feels like it's 15.
D is very frustrating to watch.
