to play football, not to play trumpet
MBB Purdue Game Open Thread
to see an ex-WV coach in his fourth year with a young team beating expectations. Wait, what, oh basketball. Sorry...
No BTN down in Florida... links are much appreciated.
Ahh, FL. I'm down here for break too. Love the weather, wish I could see the game.
I live in Miami now and spent 4 years in Jacksonville. I have BTN with Comcast cable now and have not had a lot of trouble finding BTN at sports bars in the past. Where are you?
Yeah I'm looking for a stream as well.... Stupid BTN...
http://www.myp2pforum.eu/threads/50169-NCAA-Basketball-Dec-27-Jan-2-Streaming This is the link posted in the other thread, you have to download stream torrent and this should theoretically work...
Thanks... But I'm on a Mac and looks like the downloads only for windows... Appreciate the effort, though...
I'm having a hard time hating Purdue as much now that they don't have Kramer. I mean, I still want to crush them, but it's not as personal. Anyone want to give me some reasons why I should hate their guts?
Thanks. The sports were previously separated by a barrier that you have now torn down.
I hate Hope so much.
His is a level of ass-hattery that rises above any one sport.
At this point, I can see the headline "Tuition at Purdue to stays consistent with inflation," and my first reaction is "F*CK YOU, Danny Hope. You don't deserve Ryan Kerrigan"
Because of Danny Hope.
That damn train horn... and this creepy dude
Nice. Eff that guy. The rage train is gaining momentum.
is pity, that they are not us, obviously. Save your hate for osu and msu.
If you can't find a stream, you can always use the Audio Link from MGoBlue.com: Link
Here's the audio:
Edit: Whoops, beaten
this is a huge game for us to start out a tough next month or so ...
d-mo needs to take over
Morris not starting. Violation of team rules. Let's hope it was something minor and he joins the team quickly.
where did you get this information?
All over the twitters. UMHoops most recently.
That guy is creepy!!
what is it with playing Purdue that always ends up with our best player in some kind of trouble?
Going to be really important to stay in the game early especially without Morris, I guess this means Stu running the point?
does anyone know if he is gonna play but just not start or is it like a "sit out a half" kinda thing cause i dont think we can win without him
we don't hear 800 butterfly refs right away
On the radio.
Darius Morris not starting = game over.
Anyone know why DMO isn't starting?
Purdue came to play today...
isn't D. Morris starting!?
Unless he murdered someone he needs to get in there... NOW.
is a good player
I guess this is why people in the know were pessimistic about our tourney chances.
Purdue can't miss
We look absolutetly terrible offensively without Morris
Morris checking in.
This whole team discipline/no-one-player-is-above-the-rules thing SUCKS.
EDIT: Was anyone else picturing this scene?
purdue on pace for 130 points.
http://www.watch-sports.com/pro/ncaa-hoops-streams/661-veemi this should get it done, hopefully they give us something worth watching
that's the money link. thanks for sharing.
calling something such as a link "money" in this situation makes it look really ambiguous if you mean it as a synonym for "good" or otherwise. It looks like you meant it costs money, like in a recruiting paysite or the like.
If this is what you DID mean, apologies, but the link worked for me without paying, so I'm not sure it's what you meant
(edit: if you perceive the above as sarcasm, don't. I'm just trying to be helpful as that's what I thought he meant at first despite the link working for me, and streams are important to many people on game day so it's likely to have helped at least one person. no sarcasm, no snark here. not nitpicking to be an internet grammar hero or a dick either)
is there something i need to do to make this work, i click the link and it goes to the website, but there's no video at all
is this bad defense or Purdue shooting lights out?
Purdue misses shot, Film at 11
WILL THIS CAMERAMAN PLEASE FOLLOW THE GOD DAMN BALL!
Man, Purdue is very, very good defensively.
Yea this is ugly. We can't hit shit.
At this current juncture, I supremely regret taking off work so I could watch this.
Agreed. I did the same.
Well this is disheartening thus far...
We look soooooo slooooooow
Is this some sort of bad joke? 2 pts in 7 minutes?
ugly ugly ugly ugly ugly ... got maintain contact here, stay in the game
if we were playing the Cal Bears. Turn it around boys
This team is either hot or ice cold, there's no in between. And right now it's ice cold.
At least the defense has buckled down a bit. I figured we'd be down 28-3 the way Purdue started shooting.
It looks like we're playing on the road. They're turning the ball over, freaking out, throwing up terrible shots, and just overall panicking. I understand this is a good Purdue team, but jesus, can we at least play like we're expecting to score a point or four?
Stu heating up!
Man. This is very sobering. Just like football. Can't hang with decent Big Ten competition. :(. Still early, but 3 pts in approximately 10 minutes... doesn't get much worse.
Whew. There we go Stu. Man this team makes me manic. I'm either really up or really down. Maybe it's more a problem with me than the team.
Thank you Stu. Damnit Morris, settle down!
D.Mo is forcing things... he needs to settle down
Uhhhhh... this is so hard to watch.
possible violation of team rules is reading the paper and letting it get to your head? settle down d mo.
Because that is the only thing that continues to come to mind watching this disaster....besides Stu hitting threes
It's 10 minutes (6 without our best player) of the first B10 game of the year against probably the second-best team in the conference. Calm down.
now he is trying to do far to much ... the benching killed the teams rhythm ... it better have been something bad
So dave brandon backed the basketball team's progress? I thought i read that somewhere. He has yet to show it for the football team and RR?
Wow.. ill hold my breath till the end of this game, but if this is how the first big ten game pans out then ouch..
For the start we have had if we can go in at the half under ten thats huge.
Thanks for showing us E'Twuan Moore highlights while live fucking action is taking place.
kind of happy I have to leave in the middle of this game to go have dental surgery. The alternative may hurt worse.
Looks like a good turnout at Crisler.
So at least we've got that going for us, which is nice.
Everybody remember that this is the #11 team in the country. Similar to football, we're better than we were last year, but our 10-2 was not against ranked competition.
WHAT ARE YOU TLAKING ABOUT WHERE SUPOISED TO BE WINNEING THIS GMAE BY AT LEAST 25 POINTS BY NOW LOL FIRE BILEN
Just as I tell everyone not to get their hopes up unnecessarily, they go on this absurd run and we're down by 1. WE NEED TO WIN ALL GAMES WE SHOULD BE 12-0 RIGHT NOW ANGAR!
lose to that creepy cho-mo looking guy.
Huge 3 pointer
I think we've stopped the bleeding.
Stu with a gumby-esque drive and bucket.
Wow. As bad as they have looked, only down 5.
Is a huge victory at this point.
Here come the Wolverines!
Love that kid!
like i sai on page 1 before the game started, STUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
Come on you Wolverines!
got a ball game now
Evan is killing them right now
He's heating up...
thank you....more please!
Solid defensive effort on this last possession, gotta get the rebound though... Can't give the offense 3 or 4 chances at the basket
Michigan's run has occured when they were not giving away possessions, that is the key to the rest of the game
It was clear that Purdue wasn't going to be able to keep up the defensive intensity that they started out with. Or that they would make every shot they took.
Fight it out boys.
Call it a comeback... Lets go blue!
They look like someone has finnally lit a fire under them. Playing some good d.
I like how they were talking about Morris's bad pass a couple minutes ago, but also are talking about how good he is assist-wise. It was just a bad pass that time. If it works to get the assists, that's all that matters, and that's how he just got that last one.
Stu is keeping them in the game
... so far.
We've been here all along.
We got this Michigan...we got this.
STUMANJI STUMANJI STUMANJI!
its nice how well things go when you take care of the basketball
I know he didn't start, but is he out for just the 1st, a certain amount of time, the whole game? We're looking alright right now though, but Michigan could use him to really put the game at another level.
uhhhhhh he played after the first tv time out...
He's been playing since the first TV timeout
He got into the game about five minutes in...
just turned the game on a minute ago, just saw the maize sleeve.
We look like were starting to force that 3 ball a little.
Is there a reason that the cameraman can't keep the ball in the frame all the time? they aren''t covering the back 10-15 feet during the half-court set.
This is my biggest criticism of the BTN so far. Their camermen seem to be incompetent no matter what the sport.
Yes! I have been yelling about this for the last 30 minutes. It's driving me nuts. Did the producer tell all the cameramen, "Alright, after they cross half court, you MUST keep the basket in the frame, regardless of if the ball is near half court. If you don't, you are fired."
Pretty sure the problem is the regular/HD thing. If you flip to the HD channel & put your screen in letterbox, it's much better viewing (at least for me). The cameraman is clearly unaware that many people watch w/o HD, and consequently cuts things off routinely.
Morris needs to be made of Adamantium, because I fear any injuries that keep him out any length of time on this team.
to the line ... we need to get him involved in this game
And the lead is ours!!
Morris with the drive and the dish to Horford for the dunk to take the lead by 1.
27-26 Purdue with 51.6 in 1st half.
Sweet pass for the dunk
Michigan is winning this game.
Purdue drains a three from the corner
Purdue's only field goal in the last 9 minutes of the half.
Edit: Just heard them refer to Darius Morris as "The Butterfly" for the first time. My god, is this really sticking?
At least they haven't referred to the team as the Baby Blues yet.
30-26 bad guys. Not bad after a 16 point deficit.
Interesting autocorrect. Though not as interesting as it recognizes "dilithium".
Down 4 at the half?
You're damn right, I'll take it.
we need him to get back to form if were gonna win this
I like how both of the last two possesions of the half, Morris did the exact same play with the exact same results. If it didn't work the first time, might as well do it again.
So they covered the spread. Big deal.
30-26 purdue at the half. After the start we had you can't ask for more.
Butterfly reference. Drink.
Why won't it end!?
it was a bad end to the half after we took the lead-weird foul by Horford before they even got past half court, and then a couple bad offensive possessions sandwiched around the 3 by Purdue. Even so, we're down 4, gotta take that given how the game started.
Can't believe we are only down by 4 at the half! I unfortunately cannot watch the game, but following on gamecast. I hope we can keep it up!
Hopefully he sets the tone at the start of the 2nd half. I'm thinking to the tune of a 15-2 Michigan run?
Anyone else think that Purdue is going to bad next year? Who is going to score with Moore and Johnson gone? Although, everyone was probably saying that about us last year when it seemed like Manny and Sims were are only players.
we do ... they won tip, no jump balls
I didn't see/hear any. I'm pretty sure it's our ball.
man u.-birmingham match during the half ... really good sports watching day
should be Michigan ball to start 2nd half
Wow. I wanted to turn the TV off when it was 19-3. Can't believe how we got back in it. Hopefully Purdue can go through 8 minute field goal droughts in the second half too.
If we could just make one offensive rebound, that might make a big difference.
Why is this butterfly reference sticking?
btn is dumb and forcing it down everyones throat becaus ethey do every game
That butterfly guy on BTN can die anytime. Seriously.
he laughs at his own jokes a lot. they are not very funny, either.
FYI to those watching the stream... it has moved here: http://www.watch-sports.com/pro/ncaa-hoops-streams/698-purdue-vs-michigan-hd
Thank you, good sir. The stream went down and panic set in, but BlockM swoops in to the rescue.
In regards to the game...
We need to slow it down a bit in the second half and shorten the game. If we can take care of the ball, hit some timely shots, and get Morris out of the gutter then we'll be in business.
the link opens for me but there's no video, do i need to do something?
Defense yall defense. This is the best M defensive team since I don't know when.
Stu is as good as he wants to be
The way Vogrich shoots his J it is like he's 6'9''. Compare Vogrich shot to Smots, who shoots the ball of his forehead.
Vogrich is much more athletic than he gets credit for. He's got a quick first step. I think Vogrich grew over the summer he may be pushing 6'5"
Looked like a 12 year old last year. He's definitely more mature looking...
Funny what happens when you hire an assistant to coach the defense and switch from a defense that you have used your entire career.
Looks full on TV as well and the crowd has been into the game.
The bed intruder song.
Really pump up the team and crowd.
I found it interesting at the end of the half, Belien getting Morris the ball down low on the left side of the basket against the smaller Purdue defender, giving Darius the middle of the court to work with his right hand. Now Morris just needs to convert those opportunities.
Wide open 3 for Purdue.
You can't leave that smith kid open from 3
If Morris gets hot we got this game.
... since Michigan took that 1 point lead.
After another 3.
Down 10. Not the way to start the half
we just cant play when were not down today
Moore buries a 3 with Morris right in his face.
Ugh. This is just how the first half started. Purdue draining 3's with ease and we can't get in the same time zone of the basket.
On our start to halves.
Purdue is basically + 20 in the first 4 minutes of each half combined today
It happened once. We just need Purdue to go another 8 minutes without a basket.
Jesus, here we go again...
We need to cut this lead to about 4 or 5 by the 10 minute mark. That needs to be the goal.
Stu Douglas on that... Didn't give up on the possession.
Stu is my hero
is to skinny to stop this attack ... need jordan back in
I like this TH Jr. kid.
These refs are getting pretty ticky tacky when we're on D here.
what exactly did Horford do to Johnson on that and 1? It looked like Johnson shuffled his feet and then didn't create any contact, Horford's hands were straight up.
are pretty weak?
I mean, they're kinda there... but I think they're pulling a bit from thin air.
They have been calling everything. They have at least been consistent though.
Purdue's offensive rebounds are taking away my life...
Jordan Morgan is impressing here in the 2nd half
What is the exact score?
Also, wish you could decline the foul and take the points.
47-42. 12 min left
at the freshman take it to the lotter pick. saweeeet!!!
Morgan looking good right about now. Impressive him taking it to the rack.
Morgan is being a beast in the paint right now
3 by Moore.
The benching seems to have affected Morris, the coldest shooter right now.
Lead by 9...
.......and as I say that Morris gets the layup. Hopefully this gets him going.
Is it the defense or the shooters cause we have gotten nailed from three these last two games
It's a bit of both, methinks.
One thing I've noticed today is that we're really cheating down low and leaving guys open on the perimeter.
That being said, they're shooting well. We need to stem the tide.
The defense appears to be alright, I think Purdue is just a good team ... Most of the 3s have been contested.
were losing contact
Gotta love that RAWK music.
Since it's back out to 11, we need a guy to catch fire. Who's it going to be?
Douglass hitting some timely threes could be the answer. Let's give him some shots.
Is absolutely suffocating.
Has Purdue missed a shot in the last couple minutes?
Huge 3 there for Morris nead a stop now.
God, this Purdue team is frustratingly veteran and clutch.
Every time it looks like we've made a big, momentum-changing play (like Hardaway's dunk), Purdue answers with a tough, momentum-crushing shot.
God wh is he wide open in the corner again?
Defense is doing a really bad job, overreacting to Moore and leaving Smith wide open, the guy is literally incapable of dribbling and he's getting wide open corner 3s
No tv here at work, I just have the Yahoo box score. I see us calling a time out, and 10 seconds later the guy who's 4 of 5 from 3 and has no other stats hits another 3. Ugh.
Some of these Purdue jerks can hit it from deep. I don't like that.
At least pretend to go for the rebound.
Purdue pushes the lead to 13 behind Moore's jumper.
Purdue overplaying Morris' right hand is going to be a popular theme in the Big Ten season, but not all teams will have the defenders to apply the pressure like Purdue does.
This falls under the easier said than done category, but M is a better offensive team when Darius dribbles less. If Michigan other players were more assertive, Darius wouldn't have to dribble so much, so it's kinda a catch 22
This has been ugly and getting worse. We need to play almost perfect to pull this out from here.
they are just better than us ... at least we dont have to play them again this year
Purdue up by 18 now.
And the alley-oop ends it, for all intents and purposes.
Purdue is awful for us match-up wise. We need to forget this one ever happened and move on; there are some tough games coming up.
zero defense in the 2H
don't all for Michigan...
That one did.
Can't play any better than this.
Evan Smotrycz fouls out.
I hope Penn State can be a easy game to bounce back in.
It's getting a little too physical. They should call some more fouls.
call the dogs off ...
You know where you got that shirt from, and it damn sure not from the men's department!
in embarrassing fashion. Oh well.
Made FT, rebound the missed FT, scores, steals, and then scores again
I don't know what I expected, but it wasn't this...
Game is going to end just as it began....
this game was tied with 14 minutes left ... we just gotta compete for a bit longer
and not facing a team who out of the blue starts hitting over 50% on 3's.
I saw the ball go through the net, but didn't see points on the board, then cut to commercial break.
From the little bits and peices that I have been able to watch at work, it seems like our defense in the 2nd half has not been good. Is that a fiar assesment or have I tuned in at the wrong moments?
purdue will end up with 50+ in the 2H. a complete meltdown for a beilein team.
Good learning experience in a lot of ways for young team. Not going to play many teams that get after you like Purdue does, I think M will be much better prepared the next time they face this type of defensive effort.
But hopefully we won't face a team that doesn't miss any open looks!
true dat. Purdue was hotter than a firecracker in July and supposedly they are not a good shooting team.
Fastest thing I've seen all day was Belien zooming past Matt Painter in the post game hand shake
no depth ... we have only gone 8 deep and that includes evan fouling out ... uck uck uck
Wow. This is embarrassing.
just beat IU in Bloomington. They are not a gimme win by any means.
Indiana sucks. If we lose at home to PSU, we'll win 2 conference games. Maybe.
on the road in the Big Ten is not easy. The fact that Penn St. did tells me something, regardless of how good or bad IU is. They have Battle, Brooks and Jackson - plenty of firepower to light us up if we play like this again.
Yesterday - Ha! We look like we could be an NCAA tourney team!
Today - We are going to get smoked by the entire Big Ten.
That's how we roll, ladies and gentlemen.
well this was a good benchmark game and we got absolutely embarrassed, so i don't know what you expect people's reaction to be...
and anyone who thought we were going to be an ncaa tournament team because of the 1st 12 games is an absolute moron.
Who was that jerk with the msu sweatshirt?
see this coming. Thought this would be a tight game and go down to the wire. Thought Morris would continue tearing it up. Thought that Purdue, with only Johnson and Moore as true scorers, could be limited with our new found nasty man to man D. Guess I was wrong on all counts. HATE HATE HATE losing conference games at home.
a god awful half .... gave up 50 points
I was working on my walk in closet until there were about 3 minutes left, and not enough time to come back. I will make sure not to jinx the team against PSU.
Don't work on it during Zettel's announcement.
I'm done for the day. All framed in. Much too cold.
shit ass ending
Purdue (12-1, 1-0) outscored Michigan (10-3, 0-1) 50 - 31 in the 2nd half. I hope our defense isn't falling apart.
Had to say something.
that the last 2 teams we've played have shot more than 50% from behind the arc... Purdue was 10-18 (55.6%) and Bryant was 13-25 for 52%.
Not good, not good at all.
A guy gets in your face 25 feet from the basket, he's begging to get beat off the dribble, Smot couldn't make it happen today, but he's got the type of swag, that will take advantage of that opportunity in the near future.
So ah, I give some props to the D and they go ahead and get lit up like another M defense that I know and love.
A combo of our inexperience and the fact that we've played a pretty easy schedule thus far = this. How we respond will be the key to the season.
