This has probably been discussed somewhere but I havent seen it. Is coach Hoke going to be introduced at half time?
Peppers at 10, which seems low.
This has probably been discussed somewhere but I havent seen it. Is coach Hoke going to be introduced at half time?
chant his name! Get a chant going to show the support! Mabe he will step out for some brief comments.
By the way...I think we should use the "TIM" (This Is Michigan) slogan. Kind of like "TIA" (This Is Africa). I loved watching his face when he said that.
Go Blue!!! beat tSIO!
Wasn't the halftime introduction at the basketball game done before by a certain bespectacled, sweatervest-loving you-know-what in Columbus?
He did indeed
We did that with Rodriguez as well. He told the OSU fans chanting at him from the very top rows of the upper bowl that he hoped they were enjoying their seats.
Then Michigan beat OSU. It was a good night.
but it occurs to me that might have been the most recent victory over them in MBB or (obviously) football.
We should introduce a coach at half-time every time we play them at anything!
We beat them in MBB last January while all the students were on break(and Evan Turner was hurt).
Michigan will win.
What a crappy day to be staying in a hotel. I have the BT network at home but of course this hotel doesn't.
What about the hotel bar?
If anyone can find a stream, please post it. For some reason atdhe.net never has BTN games.
Can't post it, though. Oh, wait . . .
OK, perhaps stating the obvious, but this team can compete with anybody including this (very talented and physically imposing" Ohio State team, but they gotta hit some threes. This team moves constantly without the ball and is effective in transition at getting open shots, GO IN PLEASE!! Big games necessary from Stu Douglas offensively and Jordan Morgan defensively. Run, run, run. Michigan has a very limited arsenal in the half-court but appear to be lethal in transition (if D. Morris would lay off the one-handed passes). Good feeling about tonight, go blue!
The talking shiny heads on PTI just gave us no chance of beating tOSU....I forgot why I quit watching this show until that gem of a comment.
If Hoke speaks at half-time he should blast that team from Ohio...payback
I think we are going to beat the Buckeyes...
Damn that Evan Turner!
OSU? We're playing Oregon State?
I think you are mistaken, we are playing that school in ohio not OSU.
Ohio Sublet Unit? I think we can handle four guys with Skoal stains on their hoodies.
Oklahoma State owns "OSU"
Per the Detroit News:
When asked if he'd be speaking, Hoke replied:
"I don't think so," Hoke said, smiling. "Somebody else did that script."
The players mindset will have a lot to do with this game. They have been improving and they should recognize that. They also can't get down on themselves if Sullinger starts amassing points. They need to stick to whatever battle plan they came up with and hold their heads high. They took the number three team to overtime and can hang with anybody. Go Blue and beat that team from down South. Whatever happens I am really psyched about the direction of this program and am optimistic for football.
Who'd you rather beat, Kansas Sunday, or OSU tonight? ;-)
Anyone have a stream that'll work on a Mac/doesn't require P2P software? Would be much appreciated.
Anyone remember the last time we played that school in Ohio? Evan Turner's near-half court buzzer beater in the Big Ten Tournament?
Because I'm sure Novak, Morris, Douglass, etc. do. They're going to be up for this one.
At the 4, he's gonna play wicked hawt from Bawston, Mass, Evan Smawtrycz
Novak giving big props to evan s from boston.....i think this guy is a key to this team's success now and in the future...he is that big body who can play inside and out
Can we start referring to tOSU as tsio instead?
Let's just stick to OSU.
Good to see....
from those students supporting Brady Hoke at the game tonight. I was as underwhelmed by his hiring as anyone, but at least the man has heart. Gotta respect his passion for Michigan. Go Blue! Beat the Suckeyes!
First Hoke sighting of the night I expect plenty more.
So Hoke shows up and Michigan hits two threes in a row. No coincidence.
It was pretty cool to hear and see the students do it.
I'm good at scrabble...
How's the atmosphere there, is it sold out? also if anyone has a stream please link!
It looks like the best turnout of the year. Student section is loud and everyone is jumping, not just the guys in the middle.
Why do only the middle people jump normally? It's been that way for a few years. I don't understand it.
I don't know the exact details, but the longer you have basketball tickets, the better seats you get. The big fans are in the middle and into it more than those people on the outside.
For those of you with stream torrent, myp2p supposedly has a stream up:
We make only 3's the entire game
Second the comments that a stream would be appreciated. Can't find it on justin.tv, channelsrufing, or atdhe.
I got it from umhoops.com open thread.
Somebody call the fire department, the nets are on fire!
I thought it was interesting to here that he was overlooked by so many other teams and that Michigan was there the entire way....He was told by Miami that he could not play in the ACC
Since BH has front row seats, I want him to pound the floor for a defensive stop.
Nice strong take to the rim. BTW, crowd is pretty lively.
try the link from Ken on the first page of this thread. I am able to view the game without downloading anything.
Mich is ice cold now.
Jr sure has some serious shot selection issues. I'm sure he will work that out, but hopefully sooner than later.
Johnny B sure didn't look too pleased with Morris going to break.
The 3 point attempts with no one within ten feet of the rim to rebound are not good. Two of those in a row.
Stu with a nice bucket. Hopefully we get the good Stu today.
Worked on his shot all practice and hit over 60% of his threes? Impressive...We have shown we can battle in games and shoot 4 for 28 from behind the arc against what I think is the best team in the country....Shoot 35 - 40% from 3 point range and this team will definitely give us some great highlights this season
needs to calm down
Come on Morris. He's a good PG, but he always makes a few of those dumb passes every game.
What is the point of Vogrich being out there if he can't make open shots and can't do anything else well? I understand he works hard but if he's not going to make open shots he shouldn't take minutes away from anyone else.
I am loving the defensive intensity and the ball movement on the offensive end...
That was quite a few steps, yet no travel call.
They need to be more physical on the boards.
Diebler is hurt.
He banked it!!
I love Gus Johnson
"life-long michigan fan" from his halftime interview with hoke.
plus, he makes sports awesomer.
Is Smotrycz wearing jeggings?
We need to find a way to somehow score more points inside the 3 point line in the 2nd half, I don't think this level of shooting will hold up.
Down by 1. Come on Blue!
This is the third game we've been right with a very elite team. Going 0-3 would be a heart-breaking resume killer for a team that is almost there
/excessive speculation before halftime
Lookin good so far, let's do this Michigan!
It's really odd he's not using this opportunity to rally the fans. Opportunity missed.
You are talking about BH right? He said its been done before by sweater vest. I guess he wants to be his own man.
As I type this he is being interviewed.
He's saying great things about Denard, that's good to hear.
However, is it just me or is his voice really droopy? It'll take some getting used to, personally, I feel like he's gonna fall asleep any moment.
I for one am glad he didn't. I'd hate for our new coach to come out trying to do something Ohio St.'s coach did.
B-R-A-D-Y-H-O-K-E across their chests are starting the BH era off on a great note! Surely he saw that and had to be lovin' it.
I couldn't go to the game and gave up my ticket to one of those kids. They're really sending the right message here. +1 to them.
and a very deserved +1 to you
Awesomeness of the day award.
I like that whenever there is a shot of Beilein, there is a big "OK" right behind him.
Happy to see it. I wish Hoke the best and am excited about him coming to UM, even if I have some reservations about how the process played out.
lol hoke really has a thing for "touching" people.
he just dropped another reference in his halftime interview with gus.
Are they really playing the hokey pokey in Crisler?
Face palm. That was my reaction. Do the Hokey Pokey!?!
gus johnson said he's a michigan fan
I'm watching this woithout sound at work. I'm hoping one of the video savvy guys can get a clip of the interview.
When good teams get popped in the mouth in the 1st half by a team they should beat, they play as they should've been.
Somehow we always come out sluggish in the 2nd half in B10 games.
Rise and fire!
Where did Lighty get those tats?
Denard is in the house, and smiling as usual.
And I just melted. That is all.
...Oh, and the MBB team is holding pretty well, too, I guess.
Awesome! They just showed Denard smiling and singing the 'Victors'. What could be more beautiful?
Just saw the Nard Dog!!!
A lot of unforced turnovers at that, just dropping the ball, letting a pass sail out of bounds. Sloppy sloppy play.
Six turnovers in the 2nd half ALREADY! Momentum = Dead with that many turnovers.
Looking bad, right now.
is really having problems on defense. Combine that with the uneven shooting and I think his dwindling minutes seem about right.
using smh? Not only is it annoying, but probably most of the people on this board knows what it means.
that Darius push off.
God dammit, we just hit that four-possession sequence where the game gets blown open that seems to happen every game.
Why can't this team ever play two solid halfs in a row (in the same game)?
Honest question, not trying to be an asshole, why don't Michigan's maizes match? The court is different than the jerseys/shirts.
Sorry if this becomes a whole thing.
Not trying to be an asshole, why do you call it scarlet when clearly it's just plain ol' red?
Naw, I'm just messin' with ya. I have no idea about our different maize colors.I actually didn't even notice it until you said something. I would guess it's because shirt dyes can be more vibrant than hardwood paint? No clue, really.
Now that I pointed it out it's gonna bother the crap out of you lol. Sorry.
Good thing I'm not a huge bball fan and I only watch the big games, otherwise that would bug the crap out of me.I may have to go buy a can of Dutch Boy and get to work on that hardwood.
Another foul on Morgan.
But you have to give him credit for overcoming his crack addiction and getting out of West Baltimore
I literally thought the exact same thing when they showed a close-up of him.
I never realized until now that Gus Johnson is in that Buffalo Wild Wings commercial. The man is everywhere.
We are one HELL of a good 1st half team. And in the 2nd half...not so much. Not being a huge basketball fan, why the hell does this seem to happen (OSU, Purdue)? Is it simply the difference in talent level?
Hardaway with a huge 3! Crowd is into it again
So is Dallas Lauderdale on his 7th year of eligibility? In all seriousness though it seems like he's been there forever, must be going after his Brooks Bollinger degree.
The same thing. The dude looks like he could have kids graduating from middle school right about now. Does he have a fake birth certificate with a $20 attached to it like that dude in The Benchwarmers?
He must have a little Greg Oden disease in him.
Why is the offense running to the 3-point line and chucking the ball at the backboard!?
Thank god! Morgan is in.
Shot selection is....not good.
dammit, this team is brilliant one moment and absolutely infuriating the next. too many turnovers, too many bad shots.
Enough of these terrible three shots when they are bad looks! I can understand if it's a good look, but when Stu is shooting from 5 feet behind the arc, Morris is chucking it up there with a prayer, and Smotrycz is shooting right away on the possession then it is ugly.
Michigan showing signs of life. Be still my heart.
Nice effort and better follow-up on the shots! Keep that momentum alive and get a key stop here. We need to keep this game within 2 possessions with only 2 minutes left for the win to be within reach.
Was a JOKE of a call. That ball looked like it came off the OSU player FO' SHO'!
That is all
Morgan is not looking good on the offensive side. Sullinger just fouled out.
Sign #1396 that you've been to Yost a time or two:
You're waiting for "chump-dick-wuss........." after C-YA!!
How is that a foul!!?
I have no idea, but I'm just glad that I don't have any hard objects to chuck at the TV.
Time and score?
64-60 Ohio 38 seconds
60 to 64, with the ball.
64-60, OSU on top. UM possession.
Wow. Ref blew it early and had to call something. Don't want to look like a fool.
We're getting screwed like Gary Moeller's wife... is that joke now obsolete?
man we got jobbed right there. horseshit call.
the ref just fucked that call. looked like he blew the whistle- realized he didn't travel and decided to call a foul. almost like he didn't know what to do.
64-62, ohio state up. 22.3 secs left
michigan has 1 timeout. both teams in the bonus.
just thinking the same thing
Novak fouled on the 3!
Come on Novak! Hit these!
time to hack-a-Buckeye if we can't get a tie-up since we have the arrow
Wow Novak....had to hit ALL of them...
Then they could make 2 free throws and we could still tie with a three -- which we're good at.
Good play by Morris there. Need OSU to miss one of the FT's
Apparently he does indeed know the words to The Victors.
That hurts needing a three at some point.
Lloyd Brady sighting in the crowd when Novak fouled out
such is life, boys.
The most impressive list of losses in the nation.
This team never pulls through in the 2nd half!
We did against PSU.
good effort boys. something to build on.
I do feel good about this team though.
leading the NCAA in "moral victories"
Three single-digit losses to top 10 teams. Gotta love the effort, but man, we've got to pull one of these out.
man, glad darius hits a three when the game is already over, he took some questionable shots tonight, all in all, we still are looking very impressive, just would have been nice to grab one of the last two but future looks bright
I love holding our own against teams in the top 3, but it'd be GREAT to have a signature win. Just feels like we got robbed.
Keep it up boys. Two har fought losses in a row. And this team's still so young.
the buzzer sounded approx 0.3 seconds before the actual clock ran out????
am i seeing stuff?
The BTN clock on the TV screen is not official.
Oh well. Homework time.
Thad Matta must give great bjs
wondering why we saw so little of Horford in this game? He had a great And-1 play and then didn't see him in the game the rest of the way, even with Morgan in foul trouble...
when morgan went to the bench is when OSU made their big 10-12 point run, i'm guessing just couldn't match up sizewise with OSU big men defensively
Bogus. That school from ohio is putting their money to use
I could actually see Douglass' minutes decreasing again. The offense stagnates when he is in there. Burke and Brundidge will eat his minutes up. Novak is more effective playing the 3 than the 2. He played much better without Hardaway than with him.
Just keep tellin myself that this team has already exceeded expectations, but getting a T25 win would be nice.
