Game on ESPN2, and maybe the last good one till almost the new year (Iowa State isn't what they once were, and lost to Drake). So might be the last exciting game with a month's worth of development (maybe more...how do we start AND end the Big Ten season with Penn State?). And if I'm wrong, there's always Rudolph at 8 pm. (Oh who am I kidding, set your dvr).
Michigan-Virginia B-Ball Open Thread
Streaming on ESPN3, for anyone who needs it.
but not too lazy to reload? 7pm
"Nazi UFO Conspiracy" on the Military Channel. No, I'll watch Michigan hoops, thanks.
My dvr only let's me record 2 programs!!
60-56 UVA. flame away
Why post something specifically to be flamed? Give analysis at least.
i was way off
I thought this game was LIVE
Hmm.. cant find a stream on atdhe.tv... anyone know of another one? I don't have access to espn3...
Love ya, bud!
Nice usage of parenthesis, M-Wolverine. Only makes the post slightly harder to read.
For an open thread next time.
Oakland at the Palace isn't an entertaining game? Did they lose a lot of talent or something?
OU beat Tennessee 89-81
for the reminder - I am at work and forgot to set my DVR, now however, thanks to you it is being recorded and I am set - GO BLUE!
snack - check, kids sedated - check, start the game
Virginia is a good defensive team. Another very good road test for this tough Michigan team.
Predicting Jordan doesn't let Mike Scott go completely bananas, and our guards outplay theirs
We win in a close one, with Mike Scott getting something like 17 pts, but Jordan battling him and getting 12 pts on 5-8 shooting, and grabbing 7-8 boards of his own
Don't mean to interrupt the thread but I thought everyone would like to know that Brionte will be visited tomorrow by Fred Jackson and (WR Coach) Heck in his home. Shall we buckle up? Meyer will be voting soon with Hoke following behind (most likely).
I'll be upset with mgocommenters if we end up under twenty Led Zeppelin jokes in this one.
Smotrycz finally gets a shot off from under the rim instead of just flailing like a trout.
Smotz with the drive...like his new found aggressiveness this year
I think we have more talent and better coaching/discipline
UVa was chanting "Let's Go _____!" What was that _____? It sounded like Blue to me so therefore they must stop it
Wahoos I believe
It's "Hoos" (short for Wahoos).
Out of curiosity, why are they called the Wahoos? Does it have something to do with Cavaliers that I am unfamiliar with?
a Wahoo is a fish reportedly that can "drink" 3 times its weight. (I know, I know... its a FISH... it DRINKS with every breath. No, I don't understand what it means.)
But, Virginia used to have a rep as a party school. They liked to think they can chug beer w the best (read: Dartmouth). So, the student body years and years ago decided to call themselves the Wahoos b/c they can drink so much. And it stuck.
A "Double Wahoo" is someone with both undergrad and grad UVa degrees. A "triple Wahoo" would be, like, BS, MS and PhD, all from UVa, etc.
Yeah, as dumb as naming yourself after a nut.
Guessing it was "Let's go Hoo's." Would sound a lot like Blue.
Timmy needs some touches... Yet I love how no one forces it and it all comes within the flow of the offence.
where's all the maize i was expecting?
Two fouls early. Not good.
Vogrich in before Stu?
can we not rebound or what
Vogrich in before Stu?
Hahaha..Announcer said Smotz a "guard that can't dribble"
Guard who can't dribble. Did he mean that as a compliment?!?
UVA's offensive possessions turning into slop fests.
Ball just not bouncing our way; two in a row, good stops but missed the rebounds.
Horford needs to not start his post moves when he's 10 feet away from the basket.
I like Horford's moves, just don't think he has the strength yet to be a real post presence
You mean the "one" he has??? Two dribbles and throw it over the right/left shoulder??? He has potential, but he has a long way to go...
Agreed that he has work to do, but if he has the strength to get post position 4-5 ft from the basket and not 12ft...I'll take 4ft jump hooks all day
Very sloppy early. Would maybe like to see us go big against Virginia.
Whenever you play on the road, if you can survive the first 10 minutes without digging yourself in a hole, it's a good thing. Just need to figure out UVa's defense and the points will come. Luckily they're missing shots and having turnovers like we are.
It's been all defense and missed shots. It's been 10-9 for about three minutes.
I am intrigued...
Vog before Stu so he can spell Burke because of THJ's foul trouble. I get it...
