Duh, God has anticipation.

Duh, God has anticipation.
The kick in the balls was even a couple of free throws at the end of the game and UM wins.
Ah well, a learning experience for this club.
Or maybe he's reacting like a normal human being who expected this team to lose.
I was upset and I still kind of am, but I don't let it ruin my night or destroy my TV or come on the board and act like there is no chance to get into the tournament at this point. Oh, and if we didn't have a fanatical base, RR wouldn't have been poked and prodded from the first day that he was here. Not that I think that our reaction to this game has any bearing on the season whatsoever.
I wouldn't say that - he hit some huge shots and free throws against Iowa and other times. Don't question a guy's "clutchness" because he missed a couple of FTs when everyone else was clanging them.
Do you actually have numbers to back that up? Morris was 4-6 against Iowa (though he did clang 2 in the OT, but also hit 4 straight near the end of the game), and has been decent all year. The kid played his heart out against Wiscy and the probable B1G POY and held him to sub-.500 shooting. He missed some free throws, but so did everyone else. I think blaming Morris, or anyone in particular, for this loss is myopic - you win as a team and you lose as a team, no matter how cliche that might sound.
Also, stopped by RCMB for a sec and they were just as self-conciously happy about UM's win as you would expect. Again, if the Little Brother shoes fit...
for MSU in the past 5 years
Why would you willingly subject yourself to such torture?
we need to win two more.
I threw up.
I mean remember 2006? What did it feel like to be ranked third in the country after the regular season? Un-fucking-believably deflating.
BRIAN SAVE US!!!!!!!!'!!!!!'!!!
Words cannot describe it
It's going to be fun to be a Michigan fan again..... Game ended 20 minutes ago and I still haven't moved.
That was bad. REALLY lucky shot. Brought back memories of Evan Turner's shot in the BTT. I don't know if it was bad defensivestrategy employed by the coaches or a lapse in judgement by the players, it doesn't really matter though. We had around 8 missed free throws? Can't do that in a close game, especially when we got to the line so much more often than they did.
I don't think the NCAA Tournament is out of reach, we have to win out though. Probably make a run or 2+ games in the BTT. Would an NIT berth be that bad? Two more home games in a tournament that we could probably win or at least make a deep run. It would be more practices and game experience for our extremely young team. Just trying to look at the bright side if things don't go our way. If we sweep msu, I'm happy because we haven't done that in a while. Hell, we could see them in the BTT and beat them 3 times. Sparty, I'll see you at Crisler, and I'll have my broom.
We can win the B1G Ten Championship as a last resort.
I was just pointing out that while it may be almost impossible to get a berth, it still is possible...
maybe this will make me feel better
probably not though
I just puked all over my computer..everyone in the Ref room is staring at me.
All your fucking facts don't change the fact that we were up 2 with 5 seconds to go against the #12 team in the country w/ tourney hopes on the line and they hit a fucking prayer fluke bank.
Those are facts. If this doesn't bother you please stop being a Michigan fan.
EDIT: Originally a reply to your comment where you criticized us for yelling at you for using "fucking facts."
Yeah, that died when I killed what he was responding to.
It's pointless to analyze a game like this. Did you even watch it? It was back and forth the entire game. The rebounding margin was only 5.
If that banked three would not have went in and we are Wisco fans we'd be bitching about how terrible we shot (Wisco shot 36%) and how we were unable to outrebound Michigan by more.
It's pointless to find things to complain about in a game where both teams played their hearts out only for it to end on a fluke.
Argh, are you kidding me? Can't we just as easily say 9 offensive rebounds, 8 second-chance points, 18 points off Michigan turnovers, and an 0-6 run on free throws is the kind of thing a tournament team overcomes?
A last-second 3-pointer goes in off the backboard, otherwise this is a 2-point victory in the house of No. 12. Wisconsin is a "good" team and they needed a miracle 3 to win
at home [Ed-Myself: I'm an idiot] against Michigan. And they're one of the best teams in the best conference in the country.
I appreciate that you want to dissect the game, but if the difference between an NIT and a tournament team comes down to a last-second three-pointer, going over every nano-negative for Michigan this year just obfuscates the reality that we were a team "on the bubble" in any sense of the word.
FTR, this was at Chrisler.
Crisler was not a quarter empty. Just leave.
"His Dudeness" retired from the interwebz today. I don't think there's any way we'd be lucky enough to have this jackwagon retire on the same day.
Okay, well that'll teach me to talk about a game I just saw highlights of.
I submit that anything I have to say is useless on this subject and FML
All those people behind the FUCKING STUPID BACKBOARD GODDAMMIT were wearing maize, and were sad. (The game was at Crisler.)
I'm almost as disappointed now as I was when Jim Joyce blew Galaraga's perfect game.
I couldn't quite place the feeling. You described it perfectly. Just like feeling very bad for someone else because what happened wasn't just.
This game is going to beat us more than once. No doubt about it.
This is the type of thing that can break a teams spirit. I hope it doesn't happen to them.
That hurt to lose like that. Even more, my wife is a badger and simply put her arm up at the buzzer. Meanwhile, my 4 year old was still shouting "go blue!" after the buzzer not understanding what happened.
I live here in the middle of Ohio, and have been hearing shit since that lucky shot went it. Kill me now.
My only response to this is....

The most unbelievably lucky shot ever. How the hell does it bank in like that? I was catatonic for ten minutes. Luckily my three month old daughter started crying to be fed and snapped me out of it.
Bad things happen, but why do they have to happen to these guys so often? Those poor kids have to be absolutely sick knowing the opportunity that they came so close to tonight.
is terrible. Time after time he makes bad plays.
Might want to consider retracting that statement. Douglass can be frustrating some nights with shot selection/execution. He's also lights out sometimes and is generally a useful role player.
Why did my post get deleted/edited?
Getting personal on college athletes usually results in a deletion, and virtually always when it's a Michigan player in question. Threads that invite flaming also get deleted. Threads with misleading titles designed to scare the crap out of readers before they click will either be deleted or edited so that their titles reflect their contents.
Stu made the percentage play - double the superstar and force him to give it to the unproven frosh.
You get to 9-9, 19-12, I'll lay money they are in. Minnesota is very beatable.
Unbelievable. Stunning. A horrific loss. Shot ourselves in the face, survived it, then died in our own feces. Unbelievable.
I just... I don't know. I mean.... we should have won that game. Our team is pretty good but oh my god do we do stupid shit sometimes. Darius at the end of that game... not even the missed FTs, though I question throwing it to him in that situation because he's not a terribly good shooter... but the turnovers... he did have a good bucket, the kid's talented, we'll grow from this but jesus was this the opposite of Morgan in the last game...
I don't know. Unbelievable. Stunned.
Can I at least get some video highlights? BTN sucks. ESPN sucks. Help a brother out.
I almost punched my tv. Not even because I was going into a rage....but because it was just my reaction that I had no control over. I was quietly sitting there, he shot it, it went in ...and my first reaction was to just hit the tv.
Luckily I didn't, I would have regretted it.
