This one's looking a little more fun. 19-5 Michigan with 9:30 to go in the half.
Iowa game open thread
but I need to vent - I hate the home whites and I hate how Iowa has black numbering on a black jersey.
Those Iowa numbers are completely useless from a functional standpoint. I'd hate to have to be the official scorer.
agree. i hate these home whites.
steal Larry Eustachy's wardrobe?
I swear to god Gibson loses more passes than he's able to reel in.
Fuck that. Belein needs to go out and recruit guys who can make three-FOOT shots and lay-ups.
airball by Iowa. They look terrible.
Does anyone have a link to a stream?
Sick pass by D. Morris. 26-13.
I feel blasphemous saying this, and I love his raw talent, but Manny is so frustrating to watch sometimes. I think in the last 5 minute stretch he has missed 2 lay-ups, turned it over 3 times, and hucked up an airball. I almost feel like our offense would "operate better" if he would let the game come to him and try to do less. Sweet pass from Morris. Kid is gonna be sweet.
That's why I love Beilien. He doesn't let his star get away with that. He starts doing that, its grab some pine time. Keeps him contained.
I love Manny too, but dang it, I wish he wouldn't expect to get calls everytime someone plays hard d on him. He keeps looking to the ref for a call when he should be keeping his head and effort in the game. That being said, we'd be crap without him, and as I'm typing this he just drove the lane got fouled and sank a tough shot.
Why are we always so terrible on our last possession of a half? It's been true all year.
29-17. End of the 1st.
Pretty sure I heard Beilein (or another coach?) go, "Ahhh, no, shit!!" when Iowa got that easy dunk to end the half.
I heard it too, but i'm not 100% sure if it was Beilein. I laughed pretty hard
by no less that 20 at the half. Iowa should be dead and buried and they're not.
Manny can't have 5 turnovers in a half
You can stop saying "Ring it up!" after every made three.
the Refs are swallowing their whistles this half.
looks to be much more physical inside
So the announcer just said the hawkeyes have been making a comeback this half. Don't know about you, but falling 2 points further behind is not a comeback to me.
Eddie Hightower owes A. Wright a kiss after that call.
The officiating in college sports on the whole is pretty bad, not much better than the high school level in general, especially in basketball.
Anyone who watched the hockey game last night would have a tough time disagreeing with you there.
crappy crappy what
Sims & Harris 31
I have no idea what a charge is in college basketball anymore. You could cut a guy's fingernail and get whistled for a charge, and the next time down the court you could hold your position for a minute and get run over by a Mazda, and called for a block.
That call is open to interpretation just like pass interference, therefore you get a lot of calls that could go either way. I agree though that the variations from crew to crew seem wildly inconsistent.
actually becoming a serviceable player?
he turns it over and commits a foul sending him to the bench.
Anthony Wright with a great rebound!
And then he falls down.
He was out of position for that rebound. You can't fault him on that one.
I fault Anthony Wright for everything in my life.
I know Iowa sucks, but I didn't think they would suck this much.
they have a habit of making runs. they were down roughly 20 pts against MSU and came within 3 with 1:30 remaining before losing by 7
Why did Iowa pay to send a JV team to Ann Arbor? The fat white kid playing center can't even dunk, right?
Where are you?
with 1:29 remaining
1 2 T
IOWA (8-13) 17 27 44
MICH (10-10) 29 29 58
with :20 remaining the Wolverines say eff you vegas, we're winning by 16
Nice win guys. They needed a solid win against a team they should beat.
UM 60 - Iowa 46
Second game in a row?
still need a 3rd scorer or maybe a 3rd and 4th guy combining to a psuedo 3rd scorer
manny and sims each 20 pts
novak 6 pts
what happens when manny or sims have bad game or sit b/c fouls?
Wow, I feel bad for Lickliter. He sounds like his dog, Sparky, just died.
Michigan has been covering the spread like crazy these past couple weeks.
