Someone help me understand how our offensive gameplan has become so stagnant compared to last year...with twice as much talent?
MBB vs. Penn State thread
Off the ball are being defended much better and it seems the back cuts are really being taken out completely from the offense by opponents.
The same set is run by UM and if guys are supposed to be reading on cuts maybe they're doing a poor job. I think more screen slipping would be a good counter
That's 5 or 6 missed layups by McGary?
But your comment is slightly ridiculous. McGary has only taken 3 shots, including a bad jumper. Definitely not 5 or 6 missed bunnies. Come on now.
I guess I should've put the /s tag, didn't think it was necessary. Just commenting (sarcastically) on the missed inside shots.
It has already been said, but best Michigan jerseys I have seen in a while. Hardaway and MM need some better shot selections.
And now a missed layup. Wow
Cmon Blue WAKEUP!
Everybody is playing sloppy right now.
Great cut - then, of course, missed layup. /facepalm
This fucking team is so damn soft.
What is going on? Is this real life?
Take him out. Now. This is rediculous.
What the hell is happening right now?
Stauskas needs to be more aware when we're facing a zone. GRIII made a great flash to the free throw line and Stauskas missed him. That's the key place to attack that zone.
As much as people get on GRIII, Stauskas has been equally slumping.
Honestly... What a joke...
Glenn Robinson plays some of the most uninspired basketball i've seen in my entire life...
Why do I feel like he's always coasting at like 75%?
Outside of Burke, NO ONE can create their own shots unless Tim is on fire.
Something's changed here in the last few weeks. We'll obviously come back to win this game but something is different lately with these guys. No idea what it is, but we've just looked like we're not trying very hard over the last 4-5 games.
How can you say we will comeback to win this game? Nothing is just granted without the work. With the way this team in playing, we could very well lose this game.
..Because we're playing Penn State in Ann Arbor. They're 0-12 in the Big Ten and no matter how much you think the sky is falling with this team we're not going to lose this game.
this team is not getting out on the break like earlier in season. When teams keep them in half court the team stands around and watches as burke tries to create.
I blame the orange t-shirts.
Seriously, they suck.
Long-live highlighter yellow.
Mitch needs to sit for a while...two missed layups and a fade away and standing and watching. Just awful
We act like we don't even care right now. U just got embarrassed on Tuesday, u should be coming out with nothing but anger and desire to destroy ur opponent to prove that Tuesday was a fluke. At this point, it doesn't look like a fluke
Wrong. They came out with good energy. They're just out of sync offensively.
If u think that was good energy then u need to pick a different sport to follow
In the first 10 minutes and out rebounds u by 8 that is a lack of energy and effort. Rebounding Is about who wants it more and they want it more right now.
i got tickets to state college next week.. hope they don't play like this there
Is putrid. Do we even have a big man coach? It seems like anyone in the low post is unable to create a scoring opportunity with a quality move.
coach B needs to seriously rip these guys a new asshole. The defensive intensity, the movement on offense and the general level of shit giving is pathetic.
They are too good to be playing this bad.
This is a continuation of "hard-to-watch basketball". I'm not sure what the deal is but like mentioned there is no flow. Offense and defense are being made to look very average.
when is football season
Is visiting this basketball team. SOFT, can win in a shoot out but when things get physical they fold.
do you think its a West Virgina thing?
can't guard anyone.
I don't know if we can afford to play stauskas if he's going to defend like that.
in the world is going on????
Okay this is getting annoying now
You want to go back on your KenPom projection? I still think they win but my within 5 points looks very likely.
Well, at least we're drawing fouls.
Offense is really, really, really struggling. I think people have kind of figured out Michigan's transition game but they also realize that Michigan's offense is limited if there is a good defense.
This may be an upset if Coach B. doesn't find a solution quickly.
Seems as if teams have figured out the formula to slow the tempo down on Michigan and limit the transition offense. Teams being on fire against us has more to do with our defense vs. them just being on, imo.
beat us twice.
Maybe it's Wisconsin beating us 3X.
Streaming this game as I attempt to get studying done in the library. Curse these exams....
This team left it's heart in Wisconsin.
You all do remember that both Miami and BC almost lost to BC right?
You do remember that this team has literally not won a B1G game all year, right?
