Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Hey, do me a favor, grab some rope, tie one end to something sturdy on the ceiling, climb up on top of a chair, tie the other end of the rope around your neck and kick the chair out from under your feet. You don't deserve to live.
I loved Coach Bs adjustments. Switching to the zone look was genious and Duke was seriously stymied.
I also would like to take this time to say, uuhmmm,
Doug Gotlieb, ask Duke if we belonged you dick. Take your P90X and squirm back to the corner of ESPN that you reside in for the other 11 months of the year.
Coach B out coached the "hall of famer" Coach K down the critical stages of this game !! Duke was clueless the last 5 minutes of this game ... we ran our offense however we wanted ... cuts, dunks, open 3's whatever. Then on the defensive side we kept Duke not knowing what to do or how to attack ... a shot clock violation with a minute to play when the game was on the line is proof. Great job to Coach B and this team !!!
Yeah Duke won this game, and there are no "moral victories", ever. But I think this team played a more talented Duke team dead even and had every chance to win it. And lets face it ... it really was U of M vs. Duke and the striped shirts !
Go Blue !
Silver lining in losing: No seniors walking off the court at the end of their careers this year. This team played with a lot of heart and has NOTHING to be ashamed of.
Jvarg, are you serious? Get the hell off my lawn, now.
maybe you should hang this argument up, because it is neither a literal victory nor moral victory
if you were a true Michigan fan, you would have said we'll...Its sad that you take the time out of your pathetic existence to try to rain on a teams parade that got one game farther than yours. Enjoy the sweep a##.
Your prestigious career of being a sack of crap on the internet? Something tells me that you are one hombre that hasn't had many moral or literal victories.
Glad to know you're not going through life on moral victories
Cute bunny rabbit!
That fact that you are saying 'MI" leads me to believe you don't have a clue what in the hell you are talking about. Excellent try though.
but you can still go fuck yourself. Seriously. Go ahead and have intercourse with yourself anytime you want. Prick.
I believe this is a troll still bitter about both MSU loses to MI this year.
I couldn't be prouder. I could NOT be prouder. No. I am so proud. I am so proud...LISTEN TO ME, LISTEN TO ME. I am so proud of this team.
I love this team too.
...for an awesome season. Keep your heads up, next year is Final Four or Bust!
They kept their cool and played Duke even - a bad bounce (that Novak almost rebounded) away from a win.
If they stay healthy, they have all the pieces for some great years ahead - even without another big man. But just imagine what Beilein could do with just one more talented big man in the middle.
Sorry I just logged in (watched the game on DVR) so I apologize if already posted...but how big was that dumb foul on McLimans at the end of the half? That turned out to be the game right there.
Not to single out any one play or player, certainly there were dumb fouls abound and many opportunities missed. That one just stuck out in my head as totally unnecessary.
Hats of to this team that exceeded my expectations (and my friends say I'm a MBB optimist!). Next year will be great and I expect us to be on some lists for hte Big Ten championship and definitely an Elite 8 type year.
that only resulted in 1 pt. We lost by two. Point taken though, there were many BS calls against us.
that I would be ecstatic if Michigan kept the margin of loss to 12 points or less. Needless to say, I am beyond ecstatic. This may sound weird but a loss never felt so good. Get a 6'10" hog at center and national title hopes will become reality.
But since we can't, I can just praise this team for its overachieving season.
They did great no doubt. The team needs to build on this though and not take a nose dive like last season.
Never been more excited for the football season to start... and now add that to basketball next year too. This team has united fans and brought them away from the pain of the bowl game. Good work guys and comeback next year and kick ass.
about our great season. But all I keep thinking is "F those rat faced duke bastards" in my head. I just want to punch Singler especially in the face. He just irritates me. We just needed one more basket to fall or one less crappy foul call to be in the Sweet 16, but those are the breaks. The future is looking bright.
Gents, I think Michigan basketball is clawing its way back up. Cheers...we're in for a ride, if nothing else. Congrats to the boys in Maize today. They played their hearts out and earned every point out there.
][V][ Go Blue.
Should be an exciting team to watch over the next few years.
