I was just talking about this with my friends. Indiana has been awarded every 50/50 out of bounds call.
Michigan-Indiana open thread
if we rebounded the ball.
If we got 20% more calls.
Good possessions, no bad three-jacks. Solid D.
on both ends. thj and GRIII haven't driven the lane in quite some time. get back to that and good things will happen.
We just ran our favorite final possession play. Burke dribble, long step-back jumper. That's a nice 23% shot.
Fucking Oldadipoghere. Ugh.
I can't watch.
Come on boys!
Maybe go zone for a possession?
No one will box out on the Michigan team. that is the story of this game.
need to convert here.
Go get points off that turnover.
IU getting sloppy. Good guys lead by 2, with the ball and 1.25 to go.
OMG OMG OMG
ZELLER WITH THE TRAVEL I HATE HIM
Travel IU. M up by 4, with the ball, 1.03 to play.
And, get a real first name.
Clutch play and a decent call on Zeller.
Oh, my heart cant take this.
Would be valuable now.
and fresh clock
fuck you ref!!!!
Intentional. Not even close.
How is that not intentional?
Intentional foul with 50 seconds to go? Refs reviewing.
Bull bull bull bull bullshit
Good job to get one there.
please press them
GRIII makes one. 5 point lead with 52 to go.
GR3 hits one. 71-66 with 52 seconds.
And ice it.
Hardaway going to the line with 39.5 on the clock. M up by 3.
your fucking free throws
Get Stauskas in for FTs
Missed the front end of the 1-1. Indiana going to the line with 29.1 left. Makes the first. And the second. 1 point lead.
What the fuck?
Burke misses the front end of the 1-and-1. Damn.
We deserve to fucking lose, absolute mother fucking choke job are you fucking kidding me...fucking ridiculous.
they hit free throws and win the game
The non-call on the foul was huge.
What an epic fucking collapse. Jesus Christ.
Jab to hit the FTS
But absolutely bullshit calls/no-calls at end of game. What the F?
Morgan just misses the putback, IU wins 72-71. Michigan missed the front end of 2 or 3 1-1s to end the game.
WHY IS THERE NO ONE ON THE LANE FOR REBOUDS?!
job on the line. un fucking believable.
well that was painful.
Morgan misses a bunny...who is fucking surprised?
What a shitty way to blow a Big Ten title. Absolutely unreal.
Refs and poor free throw shooting cost us that one. That was 100% an intentional. Refs have no balls. Bull shit.
But, Oladipo was better for longer. My guess is he ends up B10 POY, even though he came on about midseason. Makes these FTs or the drive at the end and it might be different.
Only positive is that we defended well today. Rebounding was atrocious, but that was due in large part to shit calls at Zeller got all day long.
in the final minute along with choke jobs at the line = epic collapse.
Summary: make your damn free throws.
Nothing more to say.
We needed it over the last three minutes, and didn't have enough. UI did. Victor O grabbing 13 boards is a great example of how hustle = rebounds.
Why didn't GRIII go for the dunk?
goodbye big 10 pol, national pol, conf championship and worst of all, they will now falter and lose their next game in a landslide. DISASTER!!!!! make a fucking, fucking freethrow. SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
lose out on National POY, Big 10 POY, Big 10 championship and worst this will send 'em into a horrible tailspin at the absolute worst time. SHIT - make a free throw.
I've never understood not having at least two.
even just to provide token pressure if they get the rebound. make them burn some clock getting the ball up the court.
it's one of a few things i disagree with JB about. he never presses at the end of the game with the lead to burn clock.
and his dumb 2 foul first half rule. mclimans one minute of action cost us. and guess what, neither morgan nor mcgary or horford fouled out.
need to win it now to get a 2 seed. if not, we lose any hope of getting preferencial regional placement in the big dance. this loss really hurts.
