Probably because we consider ourselves a top team in the conference and the worst team in the conference, 0-12 Penn State has been leading us on our home court for almost all the game.
MBB vs. Penn State thread
Cause a #4 team should be able to lead against a team with loosing recored...just sayin
I think people are frustrated because it's been a long time since we've seen this team play well. Playing the worst team in the Big Ten was an opportunity for them to get their act together. That is clearly not happening so far. It's frustrating.
Maybe the reason they have not played well in the last four games has somthing to do with who they have played? Also this is the Big 10 every team can win on any given day.
Regardless of the reason they haven't played well, they haven't played well. Also, it is ridiculous to say that every team can win on any given day. If that were true, Penn State wouldn't be 0-12 right now. I can see that you feel like you are the doing the team a service by defending them, but you are still allowed to make rational arguments. People are allowed to be frustrated when they watch sports. It happens. If they are frustrated because their team has played poorly for several games, that is valid.
What is Nik Stauskas providing right now? His defense is embarassing, and he doesn't make open shots.
Is suspect. No help.
on help side defense. He is the guy who can't rotate to fulfill the team concept of DEFENSE.
YOU HAVE FUCKING TEAM MATES..
Does he? You mean the guys missing lay ups and jogging down court four minutes into the game? This is on the coach at this point.
2-3 years ago, at least when it came to football, Alltime seemed to think that every miscue was the fault of players' youth and individual development....never a coach's fault.
Different time , different sport. Do I like our coach? Yes. Do I feel like sometimes he loses control of his own game plan? Yes. Ii don't expect to win the national title or even the big ten title this year. I do expect to have players getting better as the season goes on and not getting out hustled by a team they should crush.
I'm frustrated, sorry. I'm no expert on anything. Just some guy with an iPhone who waited all week to see us respond to my worst nightmare. Go blue. Wake up.
He had Burke running clean to his left. A quick dish and that's an easy layup that Burke wouldn't miss. Granted, we got the call. It was still the wrong play.
Derrick whether he needs to "get one of my shirts [Project 135] ready".
What the fuck Trey.
Our shooting is really bad right now.
Watching Michigan basketball is like watching Real Madrid a few 10 years ago. THey are great at attack but so bad at defense.
Saw GRIII wander guarding nothing but space while 2 cutters went into the lane
Enough with the effort shit. GREAT EFFORT!
That's a foul that is so dangerous.
Terrible By Penn St....didn't wrap up.
That could be a turning point. McGary hustle leads to potential 5 point possession.
That could be just what we need to turn the game around.
Well, that, and Penn State sucking.
Stauskas gets hammered and nobody does anything. Show me a little fire and get in that kids face.
And possibly pick up a foul? Yeah, that's sensible.
It's about time for a Michigan run.
Wheres the 1 3 1 they have a walk on backcourt right now
it should be embarrassing if they can't guard them man to man.
Bad foul, but you have to admire them not letting us get easy shots at the rim, unlike our defense.
Awesome BWW commercial.
with what Coach B is doing. We don't seem to be getting better, in fact regressing, and no toughness, when you're not shooting well, you need other aspects to get you through and our team seems to be missing those key elements.
Hopefully this is a lull we'll get through soon or we're in deep doo doo
Who are you, John Wooden?
You're not alone. JB's previous teams had a lot more fortitude than these guys are showing.
They're going to be hurting in the 2nd half with all these fouls.
So are we
Haven't gone through the whole thread, so sorry if this has been said, but I'm seriously impressed with Mitch's passing.
He has gone into Kobe mode. It's really bad for a team if you have your star shooting 8 times with no assists. It is really really really bad for a team if that star player is your short point guard.
To get an assist when no one else can score.
Stauskas is such a defensive liability. Can't hold his own, McGary has to help and commits his 2nd foul
Enough with the Stauskas bashing. He's got more points than anyone but Burke.
He's also playing some of the worst defense I've ever seen. Btw, Robinson has more points.
is plenty lost giving help and losing his man on switches
Watch the other end of the floor.
Everytime I blink someones at the free throw line
It's weird, watching us shoot free throws. Only had 8 attempts in the previous 2 games.
Maybe you should be done for the day?
Dude. Take a Prozac and calm down.
It's OK. May I suggest you take a bath? Perhaps read a book?
Easy there killer. Not going as well as we all hoped but let's climb back in from the ledge just a bit k?
