Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
Manny Harris is like a business man on a buisness trip!
The Business Manny!!!
Or a buisness man on a business trip!
he scored some vitamin A at half time and split it with Bernie Mac?
So sorry for the dbl-post.
He forgot his briefcase with the Big Presentation inside?
I have ESPN text tracking on my phone and died a small death at dinner. Cracked a beer and took a seat to watch the loss and saw the amazing insanity currently going down. Hopefully don't jinx it but I've seen MAN STYLE BASKETBALL from Michigan the past 5 minutes
who tear down what they love, to chill the fuck out.
I agree. The "Chicken Little" mentality is way too prevalent among UM fans.
"Man, what could have possibly happened with FT's and 3's between last year and now?"
That was an honest question. I wasn't saying, "Oh my god, Michigan can't hit a shot. Beilien should be fired. I hope Manny goes pro. This team shows no effort, Etc."
HERE WE GO!!!!
C'mon Blue... Let's not blow an 8 point lead.
Fake punt by Alabama - Epic Fail!
That Harris to Sims was beauty. The PSU layup I'm sure is symbolic of the entire second half for PSU.
Let's hope this starts the momentum for the rest of the season!
This one's on ice. Great comeback. GO BLUE!
Hell yes. Way to go boys.
what a 2nd half. a gritty road win. just hit some 3s and they can play with anyone. something to build on for sure.
...you didn't switch over to watching Southern dudes play football?
THAT was what we needed! We were down by like 15 with 10 minutes left! We didn't have any turnovers for the first 18 minutes of the 2nd half, went 6-8 on 3FG during one stretch, LLP stepped up big time, Manny did what a star is supposed to do down the stretch, and DeShawn kept us afloat throughout. Not to mention JB switching to the 1-3-1 was clearly a smart move. Go Blue! Great win, given the hole we dug ourselves.
after almost getting doubled in the first half, we double em up in the 2nd.
way to go LLP, Peedi, and freshhhh.
ugly win, but it's a win.
What a run! Nicely done Wolverines. Now, I think there's a football game on right now or something ...
Holy MGoComeback, Batman! GO BLUE!
It is nice!
I was so PISSED I turned the channel and almost shed a few tears...
1 hour later I switch back and now I am crying! With joy! Thats the last time I walk out on 'em! GO BLUE!!!
You may be clinically manic. Just sayin.
LLP finally stepped up. Hopefully he can keep this new found confidence and stop playing like a frightened baby rabbit. Good win blue, on to northwestern.
I don't usually want to go on here during the game, I'd probably freak out on everyone because of the tension.
That said, coming on here after the game and reading this thread is pretty funny retrospectively.
So for everyone questioning the Bee-liner at the half, does this mean he is now a good coach? Or does it mean that maybe you should wait to tell us the sky is falling until after an entire game of basketball is played?
Where are you at gremlin? Fair weather fans suck.
LLP's game reminded me of last years Indi game in which he help bring UM back with the 3ball. Way to go UM! I am taking the kids from work to the NW game on Sunday.
Don't drink the kool-aid...mix it, stir it and then get drunk on the kool-aid while you serve it!
Breaking news: Northwestern beat UT Pan-American, who is #282 in the RPI, lost to Texas by 62 and Missouri by 56. Northwestern beat them by 9. Northwestern was trailing at half. The Broncs (not Broncos) are 1-16 on the year.
It took 35 minutes to show up and beat a bad Penn State team. Yes, the sun has never shined so bright on Michigan Basketball. Sigh. Forest for the trees guys. That was a "whew", not an "I told you so".
They just won the second half by 24 points. Haters gonna hate I guess. Hilarious to read through this thread. JB seems like a pretty good coach now, doesn't he?
I never said we dominated the game. I was more pointing to the people at the front of the thread who were upset at Beilein for "being a bad coach because he recruited guys who can't shoot." It was ridiculous to see all the bandwagoners at the beginning of the thread who think they know more about coaching than Johnny B. I would think this just goes to show that Mr. Beilein has a great strategy but any team in the nation is going to be down big when they shoot 34% from the field, miss every 3 they shoot, and turn the ball over 8 times per half (such as the wolvies did in the first half).
Isn't McElroy a professional figure skater?
How is he eligible?
lets take down the wildcats... btw... no liveblog and we win.... the legend grows
10pm. Just got home. Checked the boxscore and saw the scoring by half, then read this thread for entertainment. Easily the most hilariously schizophrenic thread I've read on here: No, no, no, wha..., fuck Belein, grr, hey, hey, three!, yes, yes, YES! Go Blue!
And while this thread is amusing, it is also embarrassing. This thread suggests it's time to raise the mgopoints bar somehow.
I totally owe everyone an apology. I turned on the game when we were five down and it took til we were 15 down to realize what a jinxy mess I was making. Apparently it took most of the second half for the team to overcome that kind of misjudgement on my part. My bad, yo.
I'll try and spend the rest of the season pretending my TV doesn't get any Michigan games. Games I have watched this season: Marquette, Alabama, BC, Indiana. It's a sacrifice I'll have to make for the good of the team.
I've never seen a team score 3x as many points in the 2nd half as it did in the 1st half... was nice to finally see the opposing team be the one with the long scoring drought for once
We'll just have to live with the fact that we have to at least shoot decently to win - everything will flow from that. This team can't lead with rebounding or defense. We don't have to shoot lights out - just enough for the other team to respect it, keep the scoreboard moving, and allow us to set up the zone defense when we want to. It was amazing how this turned when Novak and LLP started hitting, we were able to get into the zone, Penn State started missing and turning it over, and the run was on.
It was fun to watch - looking for more in the next couple of weeks.
Kudos on sticking it through...Go Blue!
What a comeback, Go Blue!
(By the way, Brian's Facebook status had a change of heart once the second half began.)
No lie, I turned on the TV when we were down 29-42...I was pretty bummed. That was honestly the best comeback I've ever seen. Fantastic game...let's hope it's a spark! GO BLUE!
