and here come the 3 ball prayers from Illinois...that apparently go in most of the time. They are us a la 2011-2012
Michigan mens basketball vs. Illinois open thread
These announcers need to stop acting like every shot is a miracle.
Looks like Illinois is putting a defensive line across the free throw line to stop penetration maybe. Or they're just reacting to our offensive set-up.
I don't like this lineup, at all. Good THJ and McGary in.
anyone know where I could find a Maize & Blue Canadian Flag like the one the Maize Rage displays at home games? Would like to get my hands on a couple of them
wsa hoping to avoid that...
How tall is Bielfeldt?
JB, this is a bad lineup right now. THJ only offensive threat.
Wow, our defense fell asleep on that...
Can we box out, please?
Good lord McGary. Take the ball to the basket!
We can't play defense for shit. It's ugly.
Morgan going out early really hurts.
Yep. So many people don't understand he does ALL the little things very well. They like to focus on the missed shots which, you know, happen for everyone.
Not to mention they only happen to him at a 40%. He still hits a respectable 60% of his shots, even if he does miss some good opportunities.
And hurt us playing McGary and Morgan together which may be the move to get some of these boards.
I still may try Horford and McGary together...we've got to get some rebounds.
We have got to challenge shots more and for the love of @#$%, BOX OUT!!!
It seems to me that Illinois has some very good players, but they are also very undisciplined. Multiple times leaving their feet to pass with no options, and a few passes way off thrown out of bounds. Beilein's disciplined style clearly shows.
It really feels like Michigan should be up a lot more.
Burke needs to get it going. He's been nonexistant so far.
That is all.
YEEEESSSSSS BACARI IS WIRED FOR SOUND!!!
It's like a live Bacari tweet-blitz
Our shot selection has been terrible too, but that's because no one's getting dribble penetration
Burke has got to stop the one man game.
Is broke right now.
Between out shooting and our rebounding this is getting very frustrating.
Another missed offensive board.
Ok, the orange crush's whining is getting old.
NOW they're letting them play.
I do not understand why our big men have hands made of rocks.
They're ready to go home and we just got started.
of contact for a no call.
What a drive!
Ah Mitch you are such a freshman.
McGary really struggling tonight
Great tap in!
You go, Little Big Dog!
I love Little Dog. That is all.
That tap-in by Robinson out of nowhere!! Strong work.
Does Griffey always have to play well against us?
get going. Up by 4 and he's cold.
McGary seems lost out there.
Glen Robinson is playing huge right now.
I don't think it's given that kansas won't jump us since they beat 11 kstate. Man kstate winning their games this week would have been sweet. OT I know
GRIII is such a beast on the offensive boards
Burke 1-6 now with 2 turnovers. Really struggling.
Three ball! Burke says GTFO out of my house and go haunt someone else.
Burke's had enough carry the team on his back moments to earn our trust and let the other guys step up.
