Oh don't worry, I am.
We played awful.

We played awful.
and I'm a biased UM fan, but I feel as though the refs are being a little tick-tack on their calls.
What a terrible shot from Darius. He's really not on his game tonight...
And then he slinks his way through the D for a nice little floater
Yup. Mea culpa. He's had a weird game though. Several weird decisions, only 4 points*, but some sneaky passes as well.
* I love how the PBP guy said of Morris' last bucket "It's been a long dry spell in between buckets for Morris...". Hasn't he scored the last two buckets for Michigan? Or two of the last three maybe.
I'm pretty happy with how we're playing tonight. First time seeing them this year, but we seem pretty composed. I also like what seems to be some nice depth off the bench.
Can folks throw some score updates on here? The mgoblue.com gametracker isn't working for me, and I don't have HDNet.
Morris not looking good right now.
Morris, Douglass, Novak, McLimans and Vogrich is quite possibly the worst lineup I have ever heard of.
44syr-40mich 9:26 to play
44-40 Cuse with 9:57 to go.
Morris with two TOs in a span of 20 seconds :/
Michigan getting hosed on some foul calls
Are you serious? The Michigan slap, slap, slap defense has gotten away with a lot tonight.
Yeah. I am serious
how about the fact that in the second half, the fouls were Michigan 12 Syracuse 4? I'm not blaming the refs, but you have to admit they were pretty one-sided. Every single call that was even somewhat questionable went Syracuse's way.
Michigan cannot get a bucket now.
44-40 Cuse, 8:39 to go.
Cuse ball, Morgan picks up 3rd foul...
Hardaway with a fastbreak dunk from Douglass.
44-42 Cuse with 8:00 to go.
Or are these announcers pretty terrible? And some of these calls seem fairly ridiculous as well. Granted, I'm fairly biased.
Meh, I think they've (refs, announcer's views of calls) have been pretty spot on.
The Smotrycz block wasn't a ton of contact and maybe could have been let go, but you can't argue it as a foul either.
Syracuse is being agressive w/ the ball, and as a result they've drew more fouls.
Damn, Horford hustling his ass off, almost comes up with a big play. He'll really need to beef up, gotta be able to muscle those boards.
but I'm PUMPED for Jon Anderson and the Contemporary Youth Orchestra.
Sounds like we're hanging right with them. Just need to take better care of the ball!
We look awful, this team needs to come together bigtime before January.
Find a Syracuse board.
It's my one-stop shop for the game and The Game.
Stop cheering on your team, especially when playing Michigan. No one but you gives a shit about Syracuse.
Choosing to air your complaints on a Michigan opponent on a Michigan board -- and yet pull out the win, still -- is just like pouring salt on the wound. You could have kept your comments to yourself.
I'm not mad. I'm just....disappointed.
I apologize, I'm a fan of both teams, enjoyed seeing them play each other again. Hoping I get to see it on a regular basis as in-conference in the future (at which I'll relegate myself only to an SU board, I promise).
i've got plenty of friends that have dual loyalty with their undergrad and grad alma mater, so i completely understand.
now get your bottle of wild turkey and prep for tomorrow. see you on the boards.
Already have the orange off and the maize and blue on, drink in-hand and ready to go.
44-42 Cuse. Cristian w/ off ball foul. 7th team foul. Cuse goes to the line and misses first.
Rebounding foul on Cristian, Cuse again misses front end of 1 and 1. Mich can't find a bucket again.
Still down 2 w/ 6:20 to go.
is really bad. He's a very smart guy and his commentary on the halftime shows is good, but he's been terrible at color commentary tonight.
Plus he seems to love all the terrible calls going against Michigan
BIG 3 by douglas.....!
STU for 3!!!!
45-44 Mich w/ 5:40 to go.
Jump ball off a rebound, Mich ball.
45-44 Mich w/ 5:18 to go.
Shot clock violation :/
Cuse ball, 4:47 left.
syr 47- mich 45 4:21 to play....
Morgan needs to shoot that ball. Syracuse wnt 5 minutes without a basket, but Michigan couldn't get any points either.
49-45 Cuse w/ 3:09 to go.
Mich ball w/ less than 10 sec on shot clock.
Cuse splits at the line.
50-45 cuse w/ 2:27 to go.
Mich ball, Morgan draws shooting foul. Misses first, makes second.
TO Syracuse, up 4 with 1:59 to go.
Morgan needs to be going up strong like that all the time. I don't care that they've got a couple 7 footers or they've blocked a couple shots. Not going to get to the line if you don't attempt to put it in the basket.
One of the commentators is a HUGE homer. What an annoyance.
Ugh terrible possession.
Morris needs to stop acting like a Freshman. This is his second year running point. Trust your teammates.
51-46 Cuse w/ 28.5 sec to go.
Hardaway puts in a prayer.
Mich down 3. Syracuse ball w/ 21.8 seconds to go...
Nice garbage shot by Hardaway lol
It seems like Morris can't control himself.
that he doesn't need to/ cannot take over the game like Kobe. The system is to get the ball to an open man. He's good and I'm sure will learn.
Anyway, at least M played hard.
has almost singledhandedly killed us this second half. Just a terrible series of decisions, drives and shot selection (he should not even be thinking about shooting outside 10 feet).
absolutely on fire in the last game. Can't tell the kid not to take open shots and maybe some of his shots were questionable but we weren't getting great looks in the 2nd half anyway.
