Pretty sick move by Paul.
Michigan mens basketball vs. Illinois open thread
the only big that can finish
How good is Illinois' D? Cause it looks pretty good so far; very intense.
They're obviously in a free fall. This game would be absolutely huge for them, especially considering the stretch they have ahead of them.
Paul's 3 ball is the only thing keeping them in the game.
I feel like we say this about someone every single game
That's because we're one of the worst teams at defending the three ball. If you have a hot shooter, you can beat us with even mediocre two-point performance. That is, if we're having an off night on offense.
Burke with the answering three! But seriously, Illinois and their inability to miss 3-pointers is really making me angry.
you go Burke.
Hey, there's Trey!
Let's take some better shots and take their crowd out of this before halftime. That three was much better but maybe only because it went in.
Not sure why Burke is trying to do it all right now, well, specifically on that play.
He can barely stand up on defense.
him out of a cold streak. We need a run to close the half strong.
This is a good game so far. Constant action on both ends.
The sound mixing for this game is just terrible, way too much random crowd noise covering up the floor noises
Brandon Paul is such a selfish player. Has he ever passed the ball in his career?
Not having Morgan is really hurting us right now.
Freshman have 19 of our 29, Hardaway and Trey have combined 7. Smh...
Burke and Hardaway shooting 25% each from the field. On the other hand if we can go into half with a lead with those two playing this bad I am feeling very confident for the second half.
Freshmen are carrying us right now. We just need to finish this half out, and then I look forward to Beilein halftime adjustments and Trey/Tim getting back into this game (although they both are Ding up pretty well).
Looking good so far - the Illinois 'make contested 3 pointer offense' isn't gonna be sustainable over 40 minutes
They're getting all of these 50/50 balls, they're out rebounding us, they're making the hustle plays.
This is where McGary needs to bring us some energy, THJ needs to get us going, we need to match their passion right now. If they were making shots we'd be down by 10. If we we're playing with their energy we'd be up 15.
Have you ever made a single positive comment?????????? EVER. You are a miserable person.
I'm pretty sure I was the one who made the "Happy Thread" just last night.
Also in this thread I've raved about GRIII and Stauskas.
You read what you want. It's the truth. We need to play better.
You are all good buddy. Referring to that miserable black cloud of negativity in the subject line
...this is awkward.
I think the two regular Yost guys are more negative than other posters.
That kid doing the YMCA in Illinois' band has abnormally long arms
These Illinois 3 balls are getting ridiculous
holy shit are they gonna make every 3?
Illinois needs to cool off from the 3.
COUNT IT! And the foul. Strong work, Trey Burke.
That should get Trey going!
They need to start missing some threes.
FYI if you have VLC 2.0.5 you can stream in pretty awesome quality by opening VLC and copy/pasting the following url:
You. You are awesome. Is this available for every game on BTN?
I think so. You go to this link first that lists all the games:
And then paste the game's url into VLC. Seems like it'll be available until the BTN gets wise to it.
Got it from here (2nd post in the thread)
Thanks a ton for this, great quality stream
Great quality but actually *too* good.
Keeps freezing for me, my shitty WOW internet connection can't handle it.
your passing lanes
with the silencer
Burke leaving a lot of his shots short today
I wish they didn't get so many offensive rebounds, also. Killer.
Wow, I don't remember ever scoring on the last possession before halftime. That was sweet.
Can be good sometimes.
