hasn't missed a damn FT it seems like
M - Stanford Open Thread
Let's FINISH a game
If we blow this game, Dave Brandon better be on the phone to Jim Harbaugh!!!
Why did that go in
Isn't slapping the backboard before the ball goes in goaltending???
Here would be a great time to make a play...
2nd game in a row our opponent can't miss at the end of the game
Even if the Stanford guy would have just missed that shot, no one boxed out on the other Stanford player coming in.
hold onto the lead please
Honest question, is it legal to slap the backboard while the ball is still on the rim?
but no way they can call that there
I hate leading games except for the last 90 seconds.
Stanford is just putting their heads down and going to the basket and refs are blowing their whistles real quick.
to hide spike defensively and because Stanford is too big
This team struggles with closing out games. I think they are a good team still, but if we can't close out games it's going to be a long Big Ten season...
of our down the stretch offense?
Refs and fouls are going to make basketball unwatchable. Let's just take turns shooting free throws for the rest of the game and cut out the insignificant dribbling, passing, and shooting.
Ed: Well, didn't realize there was such little time on the clock, still, I'll leave that here.
Everything. Everything, Is a foul. Ev-er-y-thing
Probably not a good idea to post a thread about an epic fail by ND before the Michigan game is over.
Let the guys play. Damn
Are the guards just not tall enough to get that screen and roll to Morgan or they just don't want to pass it to him?
Yeah, gotta make free throws here.
If this comes down to a free throw battle......it might get ugly
Missed both, Michigan foul on the rebound! What. The. Fuck.
We are shooting 69.9% FT, 16-23, which is pretty dismal.
This does not feel good
Of course they give Morgan his 5th. F off refs
you've got to be kidding me!!!
For the love of god we cannot finish a game
What the fuck are we doing?!?
Un fucking believable
Missed both freethrows, WTF!!!!!!
come on man
not only does he miss 2 - but you lose another player
Gotta make free throws....
Jordan Morgan, please don't do that.
Same shit as last year. No excuse
Michigan was 40th out of 351 Division I schools
PLS 2013 NO MORE
Free throws, they're called free for a reason.
CHOKING ..... help me !!!!
Bout time Stanford misses a FT
On that trip to the line
Put McGary in with his suit on.
These announcers are rooting for us to choke...
Law of Gus is about to take over..hopefully it works in our favor but I'm not confident about that
We are very poor at the end of games. Free throw shooting, defense, decision making. Is it because we're young? We were poor at this last year as well, even with the great Mr. Burke.
we've scored 8 fucking points in the last 5:35. 2 dunks ... no other baskets !!!!
1 pt. unbelievable.
0-7 from field; 1-4 from line.
HOW WAS THAT A FUCKING FOUL?
This is just downright irritating. It's like they automatically blow the whistle whenever Stanford drives.
Ed: Did we mean to foul? Looked SUPER light to me.
Why would you fucking foul?!
I hate that guy.
We are dumb
Another BS foul.
spike was yelling no fouls. Listen to him.
Irvin with the foul wtf
FUCK THESE REFS
Big bucket followed by no defense at all
Why, why, why, why, WHYYYYYY?????
Was that a legit foul? I missed the replay? If it was, I have no words.
Randle isn't good. If he wasn't blowing the refs, he'd have nothing.
No foul on GRIII's drive, but an and-1 on the other end when he wasn't even touched. These refs are a fucking joke.
so u call that foul but not the other one on the other end on the Robinson drive
call it even you assholes, GRIII was fouled on the drive and they call the ticky tack BS on us the other way
Did Irvin breathe on him?
If they foul and whoever is shooting misses a free throw, I'm just going to hibernate until 2013 is over.
Give it to Spike
Leave Walton on the bench next game
where is all of this good D i hear about. ole there and a touch foul.
And GR3 gets raked with no call?
What the fuck is that foul.
How did GR3 not draw a foul and yet we fouled the guy on our end?
The refs. Both Morgan and Irvin made terrible mental errors
Why bring Irvin in on D? He is awful
I swear if we blow this game....
cannot believe Irvin foulded him. what a bone head
set a pick to get it to spike or stauskus
Clearly not learning from any of our close games
Make these Nik
Nik it is YOUR time
Nik....please hit these
please press if he makes the 2nd!!!!!!
i hate that and the guy got a good look at a 3 again.
W. Thank you Nik
Stauskas with the big free throws. Nice.
Irvin is the happiest man on that team.
The refs called the and-1 so kenpom would be dead on. I understand now.
suck a dick refs
Thank god I can unclench by butthole now.
Okay everyone... HUGE sigh of relief by the collective fanbase.
Much harder than it needed to be but a W nonetheless
and win, whew, good win sans Mitch!!!
Nik is the man. Clutch.
Thank god I can unclench by butthole now.
Ed: Was so clenched I needed to undo it twice.
Nik is the man. Clutch.
I never doubted you for a second, KenPom.
unbeaten in Brooklyn !!!
Man that was as close to a choke as I've seen in a while. Maybe it was a big damn vurp.
Apparently you didn't see Notre Dame tonight.
Ugly game to watch, but I guess you've got to be happy we survived a game against a quality opponent without McGary and not being allowed to play defense without a whistle blowing every play. Hope we get a little confidence out of this, and that Mitch feels better in a couple weeks (I'm assuming he'll sit vs HC as well.)
to play tough D at the end and not foul.
As much crap as Walton gets that was a fantastic challenge without a foul
Never doubt Kenpom
was right on again, hmm.
14 fouls in 40 min. wow!
Seem to make it a point to hit someone each time down the court. I think it was the last foul that Morgan fouled out on, he half assed going for the rebound on the missed free throw and just thronged their center in the face. The philosophy seems to be don't look and just throw yourself at them and see what happens.
Still a great win by them though, even if we were 2 minutes from burning donnals (sp?) redshirt
It ended well. I'm surprised, only because I'm so accustomed to disappointment.
Huge M Crowd tonight..The announcers called a Michigan THRONG at the Barclays Center..Big Win we REALLLLLLY needed it!
Team had to had this one and got it. Hopefully this gives them some confidence going forward!
Thank you very much, Sir. Love that Nik Stauskus
A win over a team like that (just won @UCONN) without McGary and without being able to play post defense without a whistle blowing is a good win.
thank god for the ugly banked 3 in the first half.

Guess Kenpom was right this time!!! Go blue!
walton was poor on the break and running the O in general. spike deserves more minutes. maybe JB can mix in some offense/defense substitutions throughout the game, so spike gets more O touches and walton gets more time on D.
Thank you Baby Jesus.
Score...??? I need a score. Nowhere near tv
68-65. Good guys.
A win is a win. And boy did we need this one.
I normally hate this saying, but you have to take it one game at a time at this point. Beilein will have this team as ready as it can be come February-March.
Was at the game. Felt about as much of a home game for Michigan as you can possibly get.
Great fans from both schools. All together an enjoyable evening.
That was a hard fought game - just watched the DVr and waited to get online. This tram seems to get a little better every game. Go Blue!!!
Does ESPN have the box score right...did Horford really foul out in 6 minutes? I know he wasn't out there much tonight but I thought it was for more than 6 minutes.
That's what MGOBlue.com has as well, and the minutes for the whole team total to 200, so either 6 minutes is correct, or they have both Horford's and someone else's minutes wrong. That's just crazy though. How rare does that have to be where a player fouls out in six minutes of play?
