Just refs getting involved and making it about them. Eat the whistle and let them show a little emotion.
Michigan Basketball vs. Northwestern Open Thread
Sorry, but you're getting T-d up more often than not when you do that.
hardaway WANTS THAT SPOT
LOSES SNEAKER, HITS THREE MEME MUST BE MADE.
What's with this Hardaway ankle injury? Was it a mutant spider bite?
It was probably a minor thing and they wanted him to be fully ready to go when conference play started.
Northwestern down to 1 time out left. With 4 to go in the 1st.
Hardaway making 3's like its nothing. Stauskus is going to be jealous.
Michigan MF'n Wolverines
That is all
Damn those two road games is going to be tough.
Yes they are.
They sure is.
Is there a hole in the ceiling of Welsh-Ryan Arena? Becuase Hardaway straight making it rain.
Welp, would've been nice to win that "Ermahgerd" shirt, but alas, it was not to be. I'd rather have us shooting lights out from 3 anyway...
Alley oop sighting!
I was hanging out in the fake thread wondering why I was only talking to myself
an alley oop that worked, yay
next time will be a dunk, I promise
How many of you feel silly now for not predicting a 90 pt. game for Michigan (I think I was the only one). I'm an a**, I know!
Now...back to the game!
with 3:26 to go in half, ouch
Chucking 3 mode already NU?
Ankles were broken
just fucking wow, what can't he do on the court, he's so amazing
Has improved so much from last year. Wow
I normally like THJ better taking it to the bucket, but he's got the green light from 3 tonight
huh? What the eff is that call?
Are u kidding me with that 3 second call???
The three-second call is retribution for our phantom first down against South Carolina -- I knows this.
That guy has a Shawn Marion type of shot
51-30 at the half!
I was starting to get worried. I thought we might go into half up by less than 20.
As "Funny" or "Insightful." So I just plussed it. But nice problem to have, no?
If we score a 100 points will Arby's give us free curly fries?
Or do they have Northwestern +20?
3 seconds after he goes in, comes out, passes and then heads right out of the lane? Come on...
We are really really good. I love Coach Alexanders speechs!
I like this team more and more every game. I do LOVE having a great bball team
If you would have told me before the game that they'd be 8-12 from three with 3 of those misses coming from Stauskas I would have l probably would have laughed.
I would have said that Stauskas must then be 8-11
Worst 3-second call in the history of the world? Um yeah.
If he wasn't a basketball coach, I bet he would make an incredible elemetary school assembly speaker. I lost it when he tossed the scraps and walked out of the locker room.
I'm always so disappointed when Stauskas misses. Not so much because we need the points, but I want to see him get up to 60%. Or at least stay above 55% through Big Ten play, even it's not realistic. Kid can shoot.
Team: 8/12 3 Pt
Stauskas: 1/4 3 Pt
It's so damn strange, but I'm not complaining.
19-33 (57.6%) FG percentage.
8-12 (66.7%) from 3-point land.
5-6 (83.3%) on free throws.
20 rebounds total.
I have to say that I like where this one is headed, fellow MGoBloggers.
I am a tad tipsy, admittedly (a couple of beers), but man, this guy on ESPN is pumping U-M up beyond belief...getting excited!
in the country is in fact one of the two best teams in the country is pumping them up beyond belief? Not sure why some MGoBloggers still don't want to believe that this team really is that good.
That really got out of hand.
El Fuego! Been a while.
