Just made the national title game and final four. You're out of your mind. Simmer down son.
Michigan vs. Arizona OPEN THREAD
It's really great to see Robinson step up. He looked great today and is the key to this team becoming a real force.
Well, at least for a half anyway.
*bangs head into keyboard*
their superiority in rebounding was the difference. Tough loss hopefully JB can get the team to respond, we are going to need 10-11 wins in the Big Ten
This game will be a real turning point for this team. Look at the positives. Arizona is huge. We will be fine and gel later than sooner unlike last year. It would have been nice to win but we 'll get there.
I like the way you think...7th youngest team in the country.
Beliein seems to know what he's doing.
Although this is true it just feels like we really needed to win one of these marquee noncon games and we lost all of them. Good play just not getting the results is frustrating
I just want to be happy with the performances of my favorite sports teams.
Arizona scored on seemingly every possession the last 5 minutes, all inside the paint. Why not use the 1-3-1 zone at some point seeing that there was no chance of stopping them inside? Walton is lost.
Another fail Another loss Another dissapointment zero qualityy wins Football and basketball both at the same time..its a sickening feeling..t
Was the 2013 tournament really that long ago? Grow up
Stanford game at Barclays is becoming a must win game.
JB knows what he is doing. Obviously this was not the result we wanted, but unlike football, this loss won't ruin the season. If anything, I think it showed the guys what it takes to be an elite team this year. This will be a positive game in the long run, although obviously not as positive as a victory would have been. Just seems like we have a young team who hasn't figured out how to put a good game together for the full 40 minutes.
WE ARE 0-0 IN THE BIG 10. Everything is going to be OK, guys.
We will be fine. This is not football!
The B1G will be tough but I bet we finish 3rd or 4th in the conference! Our seeding in the tourney will not be that high but I think this team will make it to the sweet 16!
Why do Michigan's players back off when they shoot? Is the idea that they'll just concede the rebound unless it falls to McGary? I don't buy that you have to give up rebounds just because you're smaller. Does Michigan give up on offensive rebounds to better set up its defense?
Wonder if the band being there would've made a difference
We lose our two best guards to the NBA, our best big man is still recovering from an off-season injury, we're extremely young in the back court, and lose in the final minute to the #1 team in the country by two. A game like this is far more valuable to this team in the run of the season than a beatdown of a tomato can.
Besides, I learned from last year not to judge this team too quickly (retroactive self-negbang). Big picture, the only concern I have is that Beilein teams require enough time to play together that integrating top talent into this team will be really difficult.
