Let's Go Blue!
BOX. OUT. PLEASE.
Let's Go Blue!
BOX. OUT. PLEASE.
The Law of Gus is in effect. Settle in everyone.
Need this one bad. Lose this one and we are officially a bubble team at years end. 5 non conference losses is dicey.
No. Winning conference games is more important. Win the league and no one gives a shit about non-conference losses.
But we've done nothing thus for to evidence that we could win the conference
Been watching michigan basketball intently for longer than you, I guarantee it. You are a complete joke if you think overall record does not matter. Guess what, the committee does not give a shit about kenpom, they care about wins, which we don't have too many of right now. You very clearly don't know shit, so don't say shit.
Go Blue!! Rebound, make your free throws, and win!!! Huzzah!!
No Mitch tonight. Lets hope Horford and Morgan step up and have big games.
Go Blue! Really need a win here tonight.
Fark the Cudinal!
Show me something GR3
Apparently they're bumping and grinding out there...
R Kelly is always a good choice for that
Good rebound GRIII
Zero penetration early on here.
That's what some girl told me after our first date.
need more Spike
Well this sucks so far. Every shot has been a clank.
Not getting bad shots, but need to get something to drop here.
Yay, a basket!
The offense is much better with Spike Albrecht.
Offense needs Spike. There seems to be little rhyme or reason to it when he's not in.
Just not getting the ball inside enough. Have to attack, can't just pass around the perimeter all night.
Robinson rebounding strong so far.
One beer per TV timeout pace -- should be good to go. Will step up my game as we score more points.
Do they really call Stauskas "Tube"? I have never heard that.
Yeah - I almost rewound the DVR to see what they said about "Tube." Must be like "White Chocolate."
BS calls tonight. We need to take advantage of that and drive it inside. Refs are sure to call it.
horford already done for the half. gonna get chewed up inside now.
And Horford really hamstrings us for the remainder of the half
Robinson driving? What is this madness
Me like Little Big Dog being aggressive.
I enjoy the aggressive version of GRIII much more.
Mustard on his tube.
Srsly? He lowered his shoulder!
These dang refs are already on vacation.
There's no f ing way that's a block. I have never seen a guy more out of control on a drive
Same story different day.
Shooting 25%, which has pretty much been par for the course (save Arizona) at this early point of the game.
Yeah. Looks like it's gonna be one of those years where away from Crisler is not going to be pretty.
Beilein knows they're shafting us.
It's amazing with all these so-called shooters how poorly we've shot this year.
What an ugly game. Offense lacking any direction it seems.
The UConn Stanford game was the same thing. I wonder if they just bring that out with their size.
Ok. Spike got straight RUN OVER and THAT was a foul on Max? Pish posh.
I mean I sorta understand the call of Spike (not really), but what did Bielfeldt do in order to get a foul called on him besides rebound the basketball...?
Went straight up, both hands in the air....aka, mot a fucking thing
That's what I saw as well... goodness..
How is that an over the back?
Stanford is getting to the basket over and over but still missing shots. We can't even sniff the same zip code of our basket and have to shoot NBA 3's with the shot clock down to 2 seconds.
this game is ugly as hell. hopefully the shooters can get it going.
PAY DAY! TAKE IT TO THE BANK
Still death to backboards?
Morgan with the bunny
Sick pass by Tube and finish by JMo
Please go off Irvin. That would be so sweet.
I yelled "WTF Irvin" and ... he made it.
Irvin with the heat check?
take him out. he's made those shots, but the first one was ugly and the 2nd one was a horrible decision that early in the shot clock.
Yeah, let's take out the only guy on our team making shots.
I want this GRIII to stay the whole year. I love the aggressiveness.
GRIII called for that
that backdoor dunk should happen 2-3 times a game
This game is hilarious -- definitely entertaining for all the wrong reasons.
Anyone go a live stream link?
But you gotta have a supported provider.
Morgan is working his ass off right now. I just wish Irvin had reset the offense.
Irvin needs to calm down
If Stanford ever cools off from outside - where they're not normally good anyway - we might just be OK. If Horford can play more than 30 seconds in the 2nd half that would help also.
I like our start.
Irvin had an open shot from 8 feet. It was the right decision to shoot it.
Look at the constant there- our D
Walton's freshman-ness showed on that shot
That one dude on Stanford travels every time he catches a pass.
Offense has looked piss poor for quite some time
Not just a Tube!!!!!
"Their shooters are excellent"
Are we though? I feel like we haven't shot very well much at all this season except in a few short bursts. I think we're 86th in division I. Not the worst, but not particularly excellent.
Nice break there!
damn. it's one thing to miss some threes but these are some of the ugliest misses i've seen in a long time; plus one real ugly make.
We have a band there!?
Staukas doing what he does best, being not just a shooter.
Damn. That basket would have been huge,
If we hit the open 3's we're going to win double digits
Dont have cable....Is Fox Sports 1 the same as Fox sports Net?
No, Fox Sports 1 is like a national sports channel like ESPN while Fox Sports Net is like your Fox Sports Detroits or Milwaulkee etc. I think...I'm pretty sure that's right.
Ahh...makes sense. Thank you
Stauskas has been guarding that seven footer a lot. Sucks
Good things happen you put the ball in the middle of the zone.
wtf are these touch fouls in the post
So we can't even battle for position?
Don't mind of the refs are calling those as long as they do it on both sides.
Definitely looked confused by their zone IMO.
Biefeldt does not seem to be 'value-adding' as people at my work would say
We'd be in much worse shape if Stanford had spent more of this half going inside. Can't match up with Morgan and Bielfeldt down there.
"Stauskas from Canada" as he lets fly a 3 from about 4 feet behind the line.
The color guy just said the big fella can do some damage in the hole. Hmmmm not sure if that's how he meant it but, that's what she said!
No I just couldn't think of it. I was having a 2+2 = ahh what is it. Forgive me I've been up since 3:30am
Ah yes, the panteted Morgan stone hands.
Did Spike just steal the ball from Morgan?
osu may go down to ND. down 6 with under 3 to play at home. their ranking is a joke.
They're not at home.
i saw home whites but they are in NY too.
Not a good first half of basketball at all. Maybe they will magically drop 50 in the second half and make me feel better.
Where did Morgan fumble?
Teams with size have their way with our undersized lineup.
As they should
HORRIBLE CALL ON SPIKE!
Got fucked by the refs twice there
What the fuck was that offensive foul?
Poor half for Spike.
MORE THAN A SHOOTER *DRINK*
Seriously, this is some street-ball, silly hoops.
My lord are theses refs miserable
Foul on Spike for passing.
Not really an awful call as Spike tried to pick his guy late
Give the half a C-
Well that was a pretty forgettable half.
but that was pretty ugly looking. We're missing McGary right now
And trey. And Timmy
Drink. He's more than a shooter. He straight up told us. Slam it
if stanford had any kind of point guard, they could be lethal with all that height.
That the assertive GR3 made another cameo. Now if we can start attacking the middle of that zone--easier said than done obviously--we'll be cookin
We're fortunate that Stanford has missed so many shots from right under the basket (with the exception of that lost shot.)
Refs are probably going to continue sucking. Me thinks this is another close game going down to the final second.
beilein's pregame speech talked about not worring about blocked shots but challenging them.
osu is done
Haha. No. This is why....
Im not worried about Blue though.... bet we pull away in the 2nd half
Stanford is pretty good. They beat Uconn.
Pitt rolled them and BYU put up 112 I think it was againt them. They did beat UConn after the Huskies when absurdly cold shooting in the second half - plus IMO UConn is a bit overrated at this point.
They're kinda good... no real playmakers offensively and they don't normally shoot well. Some size, they close out fairly well in that zone. But this is the type of team we ought to be able to beat if we're a legit Big 10 title contender. Of course, when you're without McGary and - for all intents and purposes, Horford - then it gets trickier.
We played a pretty good game against Arizona and just lost to a really good team. Tonight, we just plain don't look good. Not creating many good looks. No one stepping up offensively.

Holy hell. OSU is gonna pull this out. Did Tommy Rees just sneak on to the court for ND or what?
Was there a turnover or did someone pass it to the wrong team?
Great pass by Craft there -- sheesh
ND just blew an 8 pt lead with the ball with 1 min to play. osu up 1 with the ball and 10 sec left.
Is that Chris Christie (, Governor) right behind the Notre Dame bench?
OSU pulls it off.
-Sucks to not have Mitch playing, we'd win handily if he was, still think we'll win anyway.
-I wonder who Jim Harbaugh is rooting for?
-Refs still suck
-Morgan still has stone hands but is playing decent today.
-I wish JB would have started playing Donnal, I think it's a waste to redshirt guys in BBall, we'll need him down the road I bet.
-One week from right now, we'll still be waiting for U-M football game to start.
really? unless mcgary is hurt long term, no way, imo.
He can shoot well from outside and getting him playing time experience will help next year tremendously when we'll really need him with Mitch (most likely) and Jordan gone
Scored 50 points in 39 minutes and with 6.7 seconds left have scored 13 in the last 39 seconds.
Smart foul by Craft
Could that have been an intentional foul? He wrapped his arms around the guy.
It should have been, I don't know if they called it that or not.
I called Notre Dame blowing it against OSU. Jeebus, that was predictable.
Dave Brandon was really in the coaches meeting just now.....wow
Really? Was he shown at the end?
Right when the coaches were about to walk out you could see his face sitting on the right
Stupid. Fuck Ohio State. Fuck Notre Dame too but fuck OSU more.
We're going to need our SOS to be nice and sexy come tournament committee time
Dave Brandon sitting in on the coaches meeting...
I was wondering why I didn't see a topic on the board. Hopefully Michigan has a great second half!
you can use your elbow to clear off a defender
Way to recover after that stupid-ass shit
That Nastic guy is just working Jordan down low
Nasty playing with high elbows
Morgan hasn't realized that Nastic is going over his left shoulder every time.
Horrible call in our favor
run these big dudes out of the gym.
why the fuck is it that every single team we scheduled non conference a team that we match up terribly against? We keep playing these rediculously tall, lengthty teams that can just drop 50 points in the paint against us.
underneath for us on the GRIII trey attempt, rebound boys, rebound
is a foul magnet. often too slow in moving his feet into good position.
Michigan looks best when Spike AND Walton are out of the game and Caris is running the point.
Dave Brandon is Jerry Jones
Confidence-builder for Walton
read his lips. he said "thank you god" after he got the charge call.
still hangin out in ny?
It feels like we should be up by like 12 though right?
Is that what that was? I honestly didn't know what happened.
you gotta push that ball
On that one
Well, might as well bother not trying to rebound, it will be a foul.
Feels like most games we lost this yr minus the Duke game. We are up 6-8 pts in second half and then we choke down the stretch.
Since when is a player allowed to hook around a defender when dribbling? Cause that is all Stanford does and never gets called for it. There center is blatant about it
Walton playing a bit better tonight
Walton frustrates me sometimes, but then I remember he is a frosh and not Trey and realize he is getting better.
Hit your free throws please
i don't know why he seems to miss so many!
Red Wings in ANOTHER shootout...
I hope we can stretch this lead to double digits here before all our big men foul out and we're trying to survive the last couple minutes with a walk-on playing the 5 spot.
finally win a shootout, yay!!!!
starting to hit his FT's like he should be, good thing
again can't move his damn feet. that dude goes to his right every damn time.
The damn chicken wingin is killing us
no way we should lose this game ...
I swear.....what the.......don't EVER make statements like that!
You are tempting the sports gods
Refs making shit up?
getting called for fucking touching wtf
seriously. that is a damn joke on that shot. luckily stanford stood around watching.
What are these refs calling on our bigs?
just cost Spike an assist, lmao with that guy, good thing he made the rebound shot
Stanford going cold right now. I like it
Aneurysm of Leadership
Gus said we have gold on.
Spike is hyped up! Hell yeah!
Spike's got triple the steak!!!
are getting away with a lot of crap, camping out in the lane, elbowing, backing into our bigs, ridiculous BS
I like Spike
Don't blame me - I voted for Kodos
Love the Simpsons reset.
With that intensity. Love it
Spike makes so many deep threes! It's almost seems like he makes the longer ones more often.
LeVert is not scoring, but he's actually playing well.
with these refs ...its likely!
They're getting called for everything. Wouldn't surprise me if we were down to one or zero when the final buzzer sounds. Who is the 5th string 5?
How does nastic not have like 10 offensive fouls with those elbows every time he gets the nall
you can't breathe on these guys in the post. it's like blake griffin all over again.
we get called for every fucking touch in the post. im so fucking mad at this bs
Nice -- the Big East should be a great league to watch this year.
and take good shots and maintain this lead.
Stanford calls a TO to tell the team that the ball needs to go inside every trip. We're about to run out of bigs. Every time we so much as touch Nastic, they blow the whistle.
And yet his chicken wing move goes uncalled
are really not that good. we score 15 more points ...the game is a WIN.
Do we go zone here to preserve some fouls? I mean all 3 bigs have 4 fouls and there's still over 6 minutes to play.
Who do we have besides Morgan, Horford, and Bielfeldt?
Donnal's the only other guy over 6-7 and he's not coming in. GRIII maybe? Would be awkward
Bobby Hurley still looking dopey/drunk after all these years.
Okay, we're up 8. Everytime I've started watching this season, things have gone right down the shitter. I'm going back to watching Pawn Stars.
Seriously with these possessions? Way too much time left to run out the clock
Stop shooting jumpers
What do we have to do for it not to be called a foul?
not ready for this ...yet
Is everything a goddamned foul?
Everything is a foul. We should just do free throws from here and save all the dribbling and passing and what not
Justice! Nastic fouls out!
Not just a shooter!
the biggest guy just got his 5th !!!
People can't help saying not just a shooter. Raffrtey almost didn't say it, but he couldn't stop.
with FT's being shot ... ugh
Our end of game defense is pathetic. See Arizona and tonight.
here we go again.
Let's get a stop please.
will just have started a week from now
Man, I can't believe Stauskas missed that shot.
*sigh* Close to the end AGAIN.
They have scored on 500 straight possessions - either free throws or makes. Beilein, I love you man, but switch up the defense please!!!
We need this one. Yes every game is a must win, but this one we need badly. Especially after Zona last week.
I have full faith in Beilein to get us on track by the time conference play starts, but it'd be nice to end non-con play on a high note.
Why can't we hit the "dagger" shot this year?
Clinging on right now. Starting to feel helpless. Board meltdown will ensue if loss.
We're just barely clinging to life on offense and then playing poor defense against them/the refs. The lead is slipping away in excruciatingly slow fashion
There's not much we can do. We either let them have the basket or they'll call it a foul.
Stauskas' nick should officially be the Mississauga Mamba™
is not good at the top. get spike back in.
If we let this game slip away....
high screen players this year ... holy shit, we lived off that set for 2 years. How can that be totally gone now ????
We will score off of this TO, guarnteed. Brandon's in the huddle.
Michigan is really playing passively. I don't mind letting the clock run down a bit, but holy hell.
This season is officially over
before conference even starts---nice attitude
no time to start sucking now
with 6:12 left and since we have 1 basket (a dunk) and 2 FT's
Great block by LeVert!
I just turned the game on and I'm glad to see Michigan up. Hopefully they pull it out without McGary.
Hell yeah Levert!!!
thank you based lavert
levert makes up for it. and spike >>> walton up top on offense.
Spike is our best point guard right now
but he can't guard anyone. teams will just attack him
This game is reaching dangerous levels of 2013.
did it take Horford to foul out? SMH
Horford out. Here begins the train of our 5's to the bench.
Morgan will be there in a minute or two
This just in--mcgary going into the locker room to suite up.
McGary doppleganger holding up quite well in timeout huddle.
Not this year
Stauskas fumbles the ball out of bounds. Bummer because it looked like he may have had his man beat.
My butt cheeks are clenched. Please don't choke
I thought that was Spike.
