They're all big at this point. So let's just win now.
MBB Wisconsin Game Open Thread
Is there an online link?
Games before 9 means the girlfriend has the tv.
Dude, you're watching a critical live sporting event and she probably wants to watch Modern Family (good show though), tell her you'll torrent whatever she wants to watch later.
a dvr'd teen mom
Ouch, there is no saving you.
Does she carry your balls in her make up purse also? Fuck grow a pair.
I wish I could neg you to fucking Bolivia, you are the most worthless troll/8 year old on this board right now.
Cool man, atleast my girl doesnt tell me what i can and can not watch. Especially when this is probably the biggest game of the season at this point. Is that too trollish/8 year old for ya? Sounds like man shit to me...
Men make compromises. Little eight year old boys pretend they run shit. I suppose it's your way or the highway in your mind, but the dynamics of the private sphere have changed greatly in the last thirty years. Perhaps you should catch up.
(edit: @swdude2, for clarity purposes.) You should be able to figure out how this board works, and then you'll realize I didn't post about my girl not letting me watching the game, nor was my reply directed at you. Look at the tiny indentations from one post to the next, and think before you jump to conclusions
My bad...and yes i do make compromises...but when there is a big sporting event on its her turn to compromise. But to have teen mom on the TV instead of a huge Michigan BBall game...there is just nothing to say,
But all women watch at least one thing her man will think is stupid.
I think your bigger worry is she's watching a show that makes sex not look to be all fun.
It's time to grow a pair buddy.
This is a pretty good website to find streams on, though they are very ad-heavy:
I love you. No, seriously. I do.
I found it mildly unpleasant.
As you live in Ohio, I assume you have experience with this level of vomiting.
This link is suppose to have the game at 6:30.
Is this the most important game of the season? I know they're all important but with the hype before the game I feel like it's the most important game for Michigan basketball in a long time
Link or didn't happen.
I feel a triple double coming from D Mo tonight, and 20-8-5 for Hardaway. More important than any of those though will be...... Can Stu and Zach finally break out of the major slump they have been in the past couple games? Hopefully coming home gets them back in their comfort zones.
GO BLUE BABY!
Over/Under at 121.5. I think the over but who knows. Wisconsin always seems to do well offensively when play us here.
A half hour before tipoff and Lloyd Brady is already in my living room. I've got a good feeling about this game
I saw that too. My girlfriend thought it was weird that I yelled Lloyd Brady. Explaining my excitement didn't really help.
post the same thing..A pregame Lloyd Brady has to be a sign of good things to come.
Why do you always show up when there's a game on and immediately start saying shit like this?
Anyone know if any bars in Seattle play Mich bball games?
Didn't check for Seattle, but you can check the MGoBar map.
Is the football bar. Check that out, they generally cater to Michigan fans, and will most likely play the game.
Thank you for the tip. (That's what she said) I'll check it out.
i hope doyle is calling the game
For the Big 1G Network to reach in the pocketbook and purchase new team logo basketballs. If you freeze it on your DVR you can see they totally see they painted over old Pizza Hut March Madness promotional basketballs. Barbasol is a giant in the foam and shaving cream business. Close the deal BTN!
Hardaway is going for 27-8-5
Mich wins by 12
BRADY on BTN!!!
already scoped lloyd brady....front row as always
Tim Doyle or Lloyd Brady?
Anyone else having annoying pixalation on BTN?
Hopefully late arriving crowd cuz of the early start
should be bigger. almost sold out apparently
Hopefully late arriving crowd cuz of the early start
What a nice feed by TH Jr.
Who is this guy? I know very little about Wisc basketball.
playing against Michigan
Looks like the lead prison guard in Shawshank and just as annoying.
We need to settle down and not play so sloppy early, we aren't going to win this game trying to play from behind the whole time.
Douglass is hurting us on defense and honestly it just seems like a lack of focus sometimes.
Wisconsin is focusing on picking to get their big man open for an iso play down low. Novak is too short to keep defending this all night.
Kid and/or play in for Wis
Hardaway's heating up. Next basket = rampage time.
please wake up out of your funk. WAKE UP
I didn't know Carrot Top used basketballs as part of his skit.
His hair reminds me of Kyle's from South Park.
Does Jim Jack know he doesn't need to make a comment on literally every single play that happens?
attack the glass
Michigan takes first lead at 14-13
Crisler looks more packed than it has been in awhile. Good start for us so far, lets keep it up.
I want to see Tim transform into Optimus Hardaway. Feeds to Morgan early are pretty sweet
I love the gameplan from Coach B. Attacking the rim early is just not what Wisconsin was expecting.
Hardaway, Jr. needs the rock
Following game on ESPN aboard a 717! I wish I could get a video stream (who knew planes had the internets?) Go get 'em boys.
From an Mgoblogger who travels a lot hope you can use this link.
Perhaps my technical lacking; perhaps the service not allowing streaming.
Forget a foul, that should have been flagged for a chop block.
Trust me, I feel your pain.
TH Jr. needs the rock more, but that shot was too quick perhaps.
Agreed. I don't like that shot even for Timmy.
Wisky with almost a 4 minute drought b4 those fts.
without a fg for Wisky...sure wish we'd built a bigger lead.
What is Horford doing so far from the rim on that play? At least after the first tip up he needs to get to the rim and help rebound, right?
Jesus Stu come on.
seriously? they are going to blow by him on D.
I hate NCAA refs and their charge/blocking calls. To these refs obvious calls are hard to make.
we just cannot defend jordan taylor, fuck
We need to not give away possessions on defense. Come on guys.
move, dime and 3 there
Saw him, good luck charm.
Morris spin, pass, assist, three by Hardaway.
This game is sick! This team has been so fun to watch over the last month. It's a little easy to forget how fun college basketball can be when you're playing relatively well and with enthusism, and with a chance to dance on the line.
Good god Tim Hardaway has a pretty jump shot. When you're 6'4" and release at the top of your jump, it's going to be hard to affect your shot on a closeout.
Sick move from Darius too.
That was a great game.
Seems like Morgan has really learned how to finish as the season has progressed. Seemed like he missed a lot of bunnies early in the season that he is now making. Nice to see.
Fuck that awful overturn cost us 3 points.
Every bad call against Wisconsin hurts all the more because they play such a short game. Damn it.
30-29 Wisconsin with 23.5 secs left in the half. Lets go into halftime with a lead and open it up in the second half.
So far so good. Michigan take a lead into the half 31-30, let's go win another half of basketball and get some serious push to NCAA tourney.
BIg to get the halftime lead there.

Dunk the ball!
Our white boys aren't the best at dunking.
The same way we have when we've trailed big at the half, we should win this one by double digits...
Bo Ryan looks like a serial killer
the silver-haired chimp/ape/primate doctor-thing from Planet of the Apes.
doyle loves the buttttahh flyyyyy
God Novak has been cold from 3.
SLOW THE GAME DOWN THERE DARIUS JESUS.
A good three pointer
Now and then I love you, Stu
But not always, man.
can't four of our guys get a rebound when they only have one guy in the paint?
there you go. nice dish. now knock down a 3 to keep them honest. get your game back, man. get it back.
Are you trying to talk to novak? because i dont think he can read this right now
Glad to see the coaches really coaching to win the 4-5 segments in the second half, making adjustments during the media breaks. The team seems to be best right after the breaks when JB and staff has time to have their attention.
Wisconsin only seem to be going for 3
Thank god they're missing. they're getting a lot of good looks
I love that M women's gymnastics commercial
They must be made.
to see your best player miss FTs.
At one point I hated Shaq for it
Bo Ryan looks like he died 3 years ago but was brought back to life somehow
Stu Douglass is so lazy on defense sometimes it's unbelievable.
Novak with a sweet tackle
If you have -vac/k in your last name, you shall be a good tackler at Michigan.
has michigan played better than this all year?
Finish that shit.
There is the usual WTF MORRIS pass of the half.
Hopefully the last one.
It's okay, he makes up for it with his HOLY SHIT passes.
nice no look pass out of bounds. had #s there. play smart down the stretch here dude.
God, Hardaway was WIDE open in the corner. I love D Mo put he still plays out of control a lot.
Denard's looking sharp!
I was hoping for a smile
OMG, he wasn't smiling. The Apocalypse is upon us!
Sharp is off limits in Michigan territory
Denard looking spiffy tonight...
now we're guaranteed to win!
On the fast break?
I can't stand the way Jim Jackson say Michigan.
Vogrich is playing very hard on defense today.
Morris needs to clean it up from here on out if we're going to win.
Wtf call was that? I have no sound at work.
hesitated. he knows he f'd that one up.
We're a home Big Ten team...aren't we supposed to get all the calls...?
there's 2 threes that were half way down.
For that hair.
Taylor v/s Morgan
Whoever plays better wins ...
Also - TV Timeouts suck
Jeez, the home court rims have not been kind to us tonight. There's been at least 3 different shots that were halfway down and came back out, we need those to fall.
Wisco has EIGHTEEN more shot attempts than us. Get a f@#$Ing rebound
Posted without comment.
Homecourt rims and refs are fucking us hard right now.
Now is de time on Sprockets when we cants make shots
One field goal in 6 minutes, finally Morris hopefully breaking the drought...
WTF STU STOP DOING THAT
Stu Douglass pisses me off. Why shoot that? COME ON!
a charge call
Morris didn't get the ball and ran to the post while flailing his arms trying to indicate he was being tripped/held up. he doesn't get the call and yaps at the ref while walking around in a circle of 2-3 feet. douglass chucks up the 3, he's nowhere for the rebound and morgan almost picks up a foul trying. frustrating...
HUGE shot by hardaway. love him.
no call on Wisconsin for the Novak mug
Morgan gets hit for one on a weak call
our white guys can't finish
We need to finish at the fucking hoop. Too close not to score.
CMON NOVAK!!! hit that.
Novak: go up STRONG
.... now that we lead again.
Glad we're shooting twice as good as Wisconsin and yet still tied.
they're getting twice as many rebounds
Rebounds don't matter.
it helps if you get off the ground for a rebound
its cuz of the pathetic attempt at getting any defensive rebounds. Come on guys, BOX OUT
Any one help with time and score? Thanks.
UM up 52-50 with 33.1 seconds left, about 25 seconds left on the shot clock.
52-50 michigan, 33 seconds left
Please make these, please make these, please make these
State Farm is there -
with a Michigan win!
Worth a shot.
We have had SO many opportunities to take a stranglehold of this game. We gotta get it done!!!
Michigan may not make the tournament, but they sure are giving Wisconsin a good fight.
Pull it out.
:33 sec 52-50 good guys--with the ball
boo. free throw shooting.
33.1 seconds left
52-50 M with 33.1 left
morris drain these please....
He misses the 1-1. Ugh! Finish the damn game!
We are doing everything possible to blow this game
Oh free throws....
if we hang on to win?
I would say yes
It'll be a signature, but we'll get demerits for messy penmanship.
morris. great half. you couldve iced there dammit.
Damn this is getting unacceptable... If we blow this game 6 misses in a row will haunt us.
how are we so bad at free throws????
This is a different strategy....
a damn smart one
Frickin A!! Make a damn free throw & we'd be $$$. They better not blow this...
oh fuck me
FML you're kidding me.
ungh . We are snakebit
A guy hitting a wide open three doesn't qualify as Michigan being snakebit.
it does when he accidentally banks it in
PAAAAAIIIN. So much pain.
Stu should have been on him.
HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!! AAAUGHHHH!!!! NOOOO!!!!!!!!
1. Make some free throws---looking at you, Darius Morris
2. Why would you leave someone wide open for three at the end of the game?
Michigan has played so many close games against good competition but hasn't been able to win most of them (if you count the MSU one as a "good competition" lol". If they had won just a few of them they'd be in better standing for the tournament.
I don't mean to get emo or anything, but Jesus Cristo, when will it end?
Douglass is a fucking moron..........
Fuck you man. I understand it hurts a lot & it's heartbreaking & it seem like this pain is never going to end, but calling a kid you've never met a "fucking moron" because he made a mistake at the end of a basketball game is ridiculous. STFU.
Drew, today I regret the neg is not available. That sort of bs is just UNACCEPTABLE.
Now go to Bolivian.
Really Stu? There's no fucking point of double teaming a guy who picked up his dribble. He's not gonna shoot it. Get back on your fucking man!
I forget, do you cut down or across the wrist?
I also need verification :-(
Cut an X, just to be sure.
You've got to be fucking kidding me with that horseshit shot!!!
Can't do it better than that.
How can you miss so many FTs.
My dead grandma would have made atleast half of them!!!
I'll have one soggy shit sandwith with extra sauce, please.
Will keep you out of the NCAA Tournament. The difference between winning one of these nail-biters against a good team or not.
And anyone else have a Rasheed flashback on that defensive play call? You can only lose with a 3. So give up a wide open one.
And whoever called Illinois the most heart-breaking game, ever? Screw you, it didn't even win the month.
Well, find a way to beat MSU again....
After throwing most of anything I could get my hands on.... I am putting myself on a 12 hour Mgoblog buffer period. I don't know if I am more mad at Stu for his continued lack of defense or the fact we missed 6 STRAIGHT FREE THROWS!!!
Stu Douglass has been really good for this team lately. Really good. Really. Real.
did that really just happen? I’m bewildered right now.
This team has amazing things in store for them, still. I predict two more wins, then a win or two in the tournament. They’ll sneak into the dance b/c they should – they’re one of the top 64+ teams.
+1 to myself b/c I'm trying to believe.
I cannot fucking believe this....
liquor...lots and lots of liquor tonight
Better be shooting a thousand free throws tomorrow. That was the critical point, not Stu.
Were so young and jumpy. I can't think of a better word to describe it. Wisconsin out-steadied us. They kept running their stuff, we missed free throws. They played the smart tough D. We sort of lost our way at key points defensively.
These things will come together in the future. Next two games are now must wins though. Saturday we'll see how much the team has grown. I feel horrible for them. They played their butts off.
coaching, you make them drive and take a 2, you DO NOT GIVE UP A 3. How can they make such a poor decision? Here comes the NIT if we are lucky.
Right, because I'm sure Beilein wanted to Stu Douglass to leave a guy wide open for a 3. You are a fucking moron. You really think that was the defense Beilein drew up?
not think it was drawn up that way. The guys doing post game analysis did. They said it looked like Michigan's strategy was to make sure Taylor didn't beat us, and I think that strategy is horrible. You make sure a 3 pointer doesn't beat you, don't worry about Taylor if he wants to drive to the hoop and take a 2 point shot to tie. There is no doubt in my mind Stu was asked to help on Taylor and I think that is terrible strategy and poor coaching. You call it what you want. Whatever you want to call it, it cost us a chance at a tourney bid.
Who cares what the post game analysts think? First of all, Douglass was responsible for Jordan Taylor. Hardaway had the inbound guy (who ended up hitting the 3) and left him for some reason after the play started to double team Taylor with Stu. Stu tried to get over to cover for Hardaway but in the end, was just too late. So if you're looking to point fingers, the miscommunication came on Hardaway's end. But if you watch Beilein's post game interview (instead of listening to analysts who don't even know what the heck they're talking about) he says that he didn't plan on bringing anybody over to double team Taylor. There is no coach in America who would draw up a defensive that leaves a guy wide open from 3. It's not on Beilein, it's on an 18 year old kid who made a freshman mistake.
StuD missing 6 FTs
or StuD not defending the 3 Pt attempt
Yeah, he left the guy wide open . . . and he missed the shot so badly, it hit the backboard. Bad luck it went in.
im done...make a free throw...D-1 players cant make free throws? are you serious?
There are NBA players who can't make FTs
Everyone go grab a 12 pack of beer...meet back here in 2 hours and continue the conversation....GO!
As soon as the game is lost. Had none of your smart ass BS when we were winning most of the game. How chicken-shit can you be?
I think what scares me is that you seem immune to how big of a dong punch that was.
TH turnover in the lane, shot clock violation, missed ft. Not very good down the stretch
Pain makes you beautiful.
