Just because you won doesn't mean you get to rub it in like that. Basic sportsmanship says you don't do that (Michigan concedes at the end by not pursuing...therefore you don't pad stats and put another 2 points on the board. Or you do if you're a giant douche)...and I bet you it comes to bite Indiana in the ass for future matchups. Michigan won't forget that.
Wisconsin did that on Sparty about 6 or 7 years ago. Izzo never forgot and he hates Bo Ryan probably more than he does us.
Agreed. He can go fuck himself for doing something like that. So bush league.
2 losses on the season and in both games, the moment seemed too big for the freshmen. GRIII was a pure noshow tonight, but I expect him to grow from this game and I think our losses will do more to build our character than any of our 20 wins.
McGary can't get lumped in with the others.
Agreed. Perhaps too much attention has been paid to Trey Burke and so the other freshmen (except Mitch McGray) think that they are not essential to the team. When it comes to big tough game, EVERYONE counts.
You will always have players that stand out on the stats sheet but it is important that everyone performs well. If you two or three players off in a big game then you are going to lose.
We shoot like we can and we win. What happen to our 3 ball? This is one game. Would have been so sweet to win. I so wanted to win. Im not complaining. I like this team a lot.
It's hard to be too mad about this. Indiana played out of their minds. I thought we played very well overall, but damn. Indiana was crazy tonight.
Tough schedule ahead. Go Blue!!!
I know that Michigan fans were hopeful, but I've been watching college basketball way too long to ever assume that Michigan is likely to win road games against Top 10 teams in Assembly Hall, Columbus or the Breslin Center. Hold serve on home court, take an ugly win in Madison and we'll be alright.
What did Oladipo do? I didn't see it.
...and the kid runs down for a show-boat dunk as time expired.
Sounds like he took the free points when the teams were lining up to shake hands. Crean looked back like wtf. lol
Dunked after we conceded the game by not fouling. He went down and dunked. They ended up waving it off saying it came a moment too late, but the douchey intent was there. Hard foul that bastard in Ann Arbor.
When the game was over.
It is considered a poor sportmanship move but to me it's meh! If you play a better game then that stuff doesn't matter.
complaining about because it impacted winning or losing, but it still a complete bush league move that deserves some criticism. All I have to say is I wouldn't mind somebody knocking him on his rear end if he goes to the basket in the rematch.
Anyways besides that Michigan played pretty poorly on both the offensive and defensive for much of the game. Forced some shots, missed alot of makeable shots, and allowed Indiana way too many open looks. On the positive I think this game tells you how talented this team is when they can play so poorly, and still hang around in the game.
Michigan conceded with 10 seconds left and did not defend the ball. Oladipo then proceeded to thunder dunk, undefended, with 1 second left.
Crean just quoted Bo? Damn I hate Tom Crean!
I'm gonna guess that Jim Harbaugh is his favorite brother in law and that's his way of saying who he will be rooting for.
What a cunt. Knock his ass down next time he drives to the basket.
The jump ball / travel not called on Oladipo changes the game completely
GTFO Crean. That one's copyrighted, bitch.
Think that's pretty cool of him to admit it, he's still a prick but awesome to know Bo has touched so many people!
Poor play, Props to MMG and TB. Otherwise, not so much, including the coaching. Love the kids, love the staff, but better is needed to go deep in the tourney.
Beat ohio next. Watch Independence day and have another beer now.
Can't imagine we get docked much for losing by 8 on the road at the Indiana while KU lost at how to Okie St
I say we flip spots with indiana, florida will be number 2....also with oladipo's bs dunk at the buzzer it was a 10pt. loss
It got waved off.
Florida will jump us.
We better stay high ranked. KU lost at home to an unranked team. Syracuse lost. Florida plays no one. We should still be #2.
Typical of many, many, many coaches in the NCAA. Hard go.
I will take this team in March on a neutral court vs anybody. Also calling a Michigan/Indiana/MSU + 1 random team final 4 if the bracket allows
Forget vegas for March madness. Im going to watch Michigan and turn that neutral site our way.
Don't bitch about the officiating. Yeah, there were a handful of bad calls (there are in every single basketball game) but we've had worse.
We had way, way too many wasted possessions in which our primary distributor didn't try to get his teammates involved and started launching from deep. Burke's got to fight the urge to be a mad bomber.
I WILL bitch about officiating because it was atrocious.
By Assembly Hall standards, it was pretty good. It was not the difference in the game. IU outplayed us. That possession with two minutes left where Zeller dove for a loose ball while GRIII stood and watched pretty much summed it up. We did not play with composure.
At worst that is a foul on the floor.
That was a bad call, but it's not like this game came down to one play. If we let that call defeat us, that's on us. I think IU was more aggressive most of the night and the officials generally reward that.
that call was a little bit more than bad, it was flat out atrocious. The continuation was bad enough, not even factoring in the obvious travel before the foul.
Like I said I do agree your overall sentiments though, Michigan didn't play a good ballgame on either end of the court.
then you clearly haven't watched enough basketball in your life. Atrocious officiating is Game 6 of the Kings-Lakers series in 02 or the entire Heat-Mavs series in 06. Considering the environment, the officiating was as good as we could have hoped for. If you want to convince yourself that the refs were somehow more responsible for this loss than Burke, Stauskas and GR3, then that's just like....your opinion man. It just happens to be wrong.
I lost my voice screaming 'pass the damn ball!'
I didn't see many bad calls but it seemed like Indiana was getting more calls. The FT difference was one of the differences in this game.
Burke's missed FT really hurt.
Indiana attacked the basket most of the game. We consistently settled for outside shots. It's not surprising that they would have more FT attempts.
Take care of business at home, beat Ohio State on Tuesday and Michigan State and Indiana in March. We are still in good shape to win the Big 10.
Just saw the Oladipo dunk. He's going to really regret that when he comes to Crisler
Where'd you find it? I turned away at the end of the game and didn't see it.
And not spot them double digits.
