Time to act like you didn't notice Jessica Simpson put on some weight and switch it to the basketball game!
Michigan +9.5, O/U 122
Don't you mean Clemson? Syracuse was last week.
I think he's trying to change the results of the 'Cuse game, but I may be wrong.
What happened to you?
but when nick lachey got engaged i gained 15 pounds of sadness weight
Thanks for this...
Geaux_Blue might ask to have his own thread deleted. (And didn't we already have an ACC challenge open thread?)
at this point you're just whining. about a thread in which random guys lusted after ann hathaway no less
After you've spent the week "hating Michigan fans" and complaining about the value of every thread. But I'm glad you think your stupid celebrity references have more value than other ones.
was Conan that put it over the edge.
This is my new Background :)
Let's go blue!
lets see what Michigan can do! Go Blue!
novak to morgan
THE Tim Hardaway Jr.
I'm impressed with the way we're rebounding on the defensive end. This is the one stat (D rebound %) that I think will dictate wins/losses this year.
EDIT: Why did I say that?
You're right they've been rebounding well... but that last possession... agh.
It is almost like the timing is off on our rebounds. I think I just saw two rebounds roll off of Novack's hands in that one position.
This rebounding problem.... think it's going to happen all year.
So, this is the first time I've watched the team play, I like them. I know they are young, and are going to have growing pains, but they have the potential to be real good as they grow. It is weird too, we have big guys!
Lets go BLUE!
Gotta pad this lead. Clemson's not going to shoot 15% all game.
i like the new adidas bball jerseys. when do they become available?
I agree. I was just looking for them but no luck yet.
The blue uni's are very sharp looking. I think they are a definite improvement over past Adidas bball uniforms.
"bailed out on a foul call"?
In what world was that not a foul?
Impressive performance thus far. Gotta keep building on this lead because Clemson is missing some open looks.
And I have to say that I kind of like what I'm seeing. I think they have some nice young pieces and players that could fit together pretty well. I like the backcourt with Hardaway Jr and Morris and Novak is certainly not spectacular but he doesnt kill you (kind of like a poor poor man's JJ Redik). Up front theyve been getting killed on the boards so they obviously need some size but I like Morgan, he actually looks like a power forward which it seems like it's been a while since Michigan has had that.
but this team is a lot of fun to watch....definitely excited to watch these kids grow together. Go Blue.
and playing tough on the road.
The performance thus far is even more impressive considering that Clemson is one of the most difficult road environments in the ACC.
We are playing some great defense thus far!
Smote does a beautiful George Gervin impression. Maybe this is our night.
Nice Evan. We are fired up or Clemson flat?
Smotrycz has been amazing so far in this game. Offensive rebounding, 3 point shooting, pump fake and drive to the basket. Very impressive.
Metrics = Gordon Hayward.
Is this a high school team we're playing?
They are looking good right now! Im very surprised! They are going to surprise us a few times this year I'm thinking.
Someone want to explain to me why were not excited to watch this team? I understand how young we are, but you can definitely see flashes of potential that bode well for the future. This team can make noise in the Big Ten within the next couple years.
As they get older, they are going to be nasty. Im very excited.
I didn't get to see the tourney this last weekend but did they play anything like this?
In the first half against Syracuse, kind of. In the second half of that game and in the UTEP game, there was a lot less movement and a lot of bricks from downtown.
This team plays with so much effort it's a lot of fun to watch. Definitely exceeding my preseason expectations.
Favorite quote of the game so far:
"... and they love to do a lot of backdoor stuff, too."
The passing has greatly improved since last year. They're looking good.
smotrycz had two shots in a row that made go WHAT? The first one was truly amazing. It was like a fake shot, fake pass, pump fake, then made the shot..... All in the air.
jerai is a cool name.
