MBB - Morris Not Starting
Well we can say goodbye to any good Big 10 start now
nobody's above following team rules
This not even debateable, IMO.
Having your best ball-handler on the court for four minutes of conference play is WAY more important than discipline, team cohesion, and helping a young team mature.
This is without a doubt the most frustrating basketball game that I have ever watched.
This is without a doubt the most frustrating basketball game that I have ever listened to (unfortunately I'm at work).
It was terrible...
much UM hoops the past few years.
You must have missed that MSU game that started something like 30-2 back in the Amaker days. We didn't have 6 freshman on that team either.
Your username is a bit deceiving. Beilein has a great thing going and this team is turning some heads. After a slow start, they are just behind Purdue. Have some confidence.
You haz it.
What she said.
See the second half
someone posted when it seemed fashionable given the score.
now what do you have to say?
This seems like a comment from someone who is only watching the Gametracker, not the actual game. Early on, we were getting no penetration, and correspondingly few points. Since then, though, we've been making dribble-drives & opening up both some nice shots down low & easier 3s. Even though we've missed some 3s in the later part of the half, they have been higher quality shots.
why don't you just try posting something informative.
Getting penetration is easier said than done when you're playing a team full of quick guys and future NBAers, fucktard.
Stu Douglass carried the team today and any team in the B10 would love to have Zack Novak.
Contrary opinion aside from the guy aside, please refrain from name calling. You quickly lose any credibility that way. He may be overreacting, having signed up for an account just as the game was starting, but there's no reason to use "fucktard."
The Houston Texans are playing. Then it's very justified.
Name-calling, especially in an argument, is stupid. Relieving the angst of watching the Texans takes more than just dropping a string of expletives. I tend to neg myself for those anyway.
I sincerely meant the Texans have completely made it justified this year. I've watch a lot of NFL football, and the way they've done things is unprecedented. And I live in a Lions town.
And I think I've made it clear elsewhere I'm all for cleaning up the nasty discourse to make it more safe for W, H, or W, vs. just other stuff. So if my tease came off as a complaint in "Internet type", it was an endorsement that various Texan-affiliated people could indeed hit "fucktard" status.
Interesting side note- auto correct thinks the closest thing to "fucktard" is "duchess".
A 10-2 start?
One (not even full) half does not a season make. If you real, you know, perspective, or a real critique, feel free to share your opinion...but at least make sure it has some basis.
Completely unfounded, man.
Anyone who says that Michigan "does not run an offense" or that it does nothing but "spot up for 3s" either has not watched a game or does not understand basketball. Or both.
Your resume? Probably like George O'Leary's.
are on the team because their dads think JB will coach them up. Enough said.
using the 'intellect of NBA players' in the context of the knowledge of the game of basketball is a stronger argument than internet dude who claims to know a lot about the game.
One must wonder
but I will always back the coach in these situations. I have no respect for coaches who give the star special treatment or look the other way. If you aren't prepared to enforce the rules, then don't have any rules.
Morris played the 2nd most minutes out of anyone on the team... that wasn't really much of a punishment.
Per the laws of evolution, given enough chance, probability, and time, we are bound to EVENTUALLY make a 3-pointer.
Edit: It has now become evident that I am, in fact, NOT in the Open Thread for this game. Pardon me.
hanging out with Hagerup....
its all GERG's fault.
It's hard to beat good teams when we shoot 37.5% from inside the arc and 39% from beyond it.
