Too many mood swings the last few minutes
MBB v Minnesota Open Thread
Michigan converting on the 3-on-2's in transition and Minny for whatever reason hasn't. I think that's an 8 point swing so far.
I'm confused. Dickie V giving Trey the ultimate love. He does realize he isn't on duke or nc right?
Has he said anything about Duke yet?
Not sure. I literally just turned the game on 5 minutes ago. I'm sure he did though.
I'm surprised he hasn't taken this opportunity to tell us how much of a standup guy Manti Teo is.
He did sing NC State's praises - for beating Duke.
Come on Mitch...
good half in a great game.
these two teams are ballin!
Good God McGary got hammered.
Did thjr play the entire 1st half?
We don't go up strong inside.
Once McGary gets a year in the weight room and drops a few bad pounds he's gonna be something special.
not a foul when Mitch got clobbered? Fuck you refs
this is the big ten and we are on the road.
which is what makes a victory on the road that much more special!
Strong first half. Looking forward to the second half. Going to be tough one.
Have to be happy with. 6 point lead on the road against the no. 9 team.
Don't tell me what I have to do. You're not the boss of me.
I wonder if they're going to have to start running some pin-down screens or something for GRIII. He's too good to be that uninvolved.
Yeah, that was a pretty bad no-call. My guess is the refs have a nice brown bag lunch or something waiting for them, so they just wanted it to be halftime.
mcgary, 2 steals!!
Timmayyy is 6-7, and 4-5 from beyond the arc.
I like it.
Halftime stats, for the board's consumption:
FG% - 51.9%
3PT% - 54.5%
FT% - 50.0%
FG% - 47.8%
3PT% - 71.4%
FT% - 75.0%
They are almost in a dead heat in most stats. The key so far has been turnovers on the part of Minnesota, of course. This really is coming down to little things like that though. Great game to this point though.
The 2nd half should be pretty damn exciting though. Go Blue! Beat The Gophers!
until that 3. stay with it!
I like the way it disrupted the Gophers, but knowing Beilein, he'll switch up constantly
So does McGary have a starting spot after tonight? I hope he starts the 2nd half.
I see no reason why he shouldn't start. He is better in all facets of the game, imo.
Like his energy off the bench. And it really doesn't matter who starts, it's who finishes.
He is a worse interior defender - he commits a lot more fouls and his man shoots a higher percentage than Morgan's man does. He partially compensates with better shotblocking ability but not entirely.
McGarys a much better rebounder.
Just noticed Lunardi's newest bracketology. Just noticed he has a 2 seed now. Boo.
talk about a case of what have you done for me lately
Indiana lost, so that will change.
What's going on dudes - just finished watching a fat gay black kid catfish a high schooler from holly, MI.
Man this Teo thing has really affected me
God just start mcgary already.
In other news looks like timmay playing the good side of dr. Jekyll and mr Hyde tonight
In time for the second half :) Even though I would never watch it on mute during a lecture...
Has come back to earth with a thump
Stat of the half: Michigan has 22 points off turnovers, Minnesota has three.
Gotta go a tasting at a caterer for my upcoming nuptials. Thank you mgoblog for existing and allowing me to get a running commentary on what's sure to be a good game.
The local used car commercials from Arkansas on this stream are cracking me up.
Control the pace, play our game.
Mbakwe has more wrinkles in his head than I have in my balls.
Morgan! Shut up those haters.
Too quick for the cameras
You know you're good when you're too fast for the cameraman.
There were go. Strong start to the second half!
What the hell that was clean? Looked like a foul to me.
