Seriously, is there a more incompetent poster than Hoke-A-Mania?
MBB vs. Duke Open Thread
Nice to see the hater is in the house for this game. You really do suck.
Every single game thread he gets on here and bashes our own players, with a focus on Stu. While Stu isn't the best player on our team, he works his ass off and represents our school well. If we had somebody with more athletic ability, they'd be playing instead. Why don't you hit up red cedar or mlive and bash away at our players, but keep it off this site.
Does not approve of this message.
Why is inbounding the ball always an adventure? Make a cut, set a screen, pass the ball.
Duke's style of play should at least keep Morgan out of foul trouble.
but I have to fight off the urge to imagine myself pissing in their drinks or something
Stu needs to stick to throwing down dunks.
Without Morris to break down the D with penetration we are in deep trouble
Well....sloppy on both sides of the ball. But they're defense is tough as hell. I'm worried i will wear us down.
can you please pass the ball when you have 2 people much taller than you defending you instead of taking stupid shots?
That'll probably happen a couple more times at least.
Gotta hit those 3's and damn soon
Morris back in thank God!
What cracks me up is the announcers truly believe M has never played a team as talented as Duke, shit we've played better teams than Duke, haven't beat them yet, but we've played them.
I like when both Plumlee's are in, Michigan will get wide open looks
Everyone - stop killing Stu Douglass. We all laughed at the UT fans for killing their own players, but we are just as bad. Yes, Douglass is not great, but he plays hard and is a part of this team. That should be enough to keep him above "whipping boy" status. UM is playing Duke - there must be other players you can make fun off that wear the Blue Devils' uniform.
Don't pay them no mind. Anyone ripping on Stu is either looking for attention, a dumb ass or both, let them ramble on.
He plays hard, but he makes stupid plays. That's the problem I have with him. He jacks up random-ass shots, throws the ball into traffic, can't catch passes when he's wide open, etc.
it could of worked out real well had our guy been expecting it. Yeah, the hand check was a dumb play, but overall I feel good when he's out there.
Do you feel good about a guy who plays the full 40 minutes ending with a stat line of 1-for-4 shooting, 0-for-2 on three-pointers, 2 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 turnovers (plus 2 passes that went right through his hands)?
Yay Morris is back.
Good job Novak!
Novak takes charges like a boss!
And DMo is back.
Come on Morgan, you can't heisitate!
What is crazy hand checking on the outside
We need to frickin man up and go strong to hoop. At least we might draw a foul.
Can't decide if Singler or Plumlee(s) is a bigger bitch.
They both learned from the master, Coach K
They are both bitched
Grant Hill is a bigger bitch than both.
Wow their defense is incredibly tight, how they don't foul is beyond me.
They don't stop hand checking. It is very frustrating to watch and I imagine, extremely frustrating to our players when they have the ball. Duke just keeps smacking at us. It doesn't seem fair.
UM should start hand checking to see if the refs are going to call it. I'm serious have Vogrich hand check Singler on the perimeter one play to test the refs.
any of you basketball coach types have an idea how michigan can get the offense going?
spread the floor, go pick and pop and look to penetrate and kick. Michigan is smaller but much quicker.
New NCAA release eliminates reaching in and hand checking from the rule book. The non-calls make sense now.
We can't seem to handle this pressure defense. Turnover after turnover and plenty of near turnovers.
Darius keeps having to battle back against his defender every time bc dudes hands are all over him. No matter who's guarding him.
My one issue with Coach B is that I wish we were way more vociferous with the refs when shit like that goes down.
Michigan needs to to a better job getting the ball to the paint. Need to go to the line a little more than against Tenn.
Douglass is killing the team right now. He looks likes a deer in headlights out there. He's turning the ball over and when he's not turning it over it looks like he's about to turn it over. I think Coach B needs to sit his ass and calm his nerves.
I've always thought that if Kyle Singler doesn't make it in the NBA he could have a long and successful career playing the villain in World War II movies.
Has anyone tasted Tate's new chicke?
If Duke plays defense (is allowed to) like this the rest of the tournament, i'm not sure they can be beat.
