Can't hit shit..
Michigan vs Iowa State game thread
If we could make a shot, it would help matters immensely.
Refs totally fucked this whole game up. Then trashy ISU fans chant fuck mcgary. What a goddamn joke. I hope we get these fuckers in the tourney on a neutral court.
It's a respectable opponent at their place (Iowa St. probably shoulda beat OSU in the NCAAs last year and beat Kansas) - yeah, losing sucks but this loss will pay dividends in teaching our young team how to play together in March.
Robinson will come around. I hope.
1. No Leadership
2. No Identity
3. No "go-to guy" scoring option
Who misses Burke now?
Relax. This was a predictable loss. A win would have been more surprising.
All of us? I don't think any of us wanted Trey to leave.
A 2 does us no good...need a 3 and foul and another 3.
Refs really handing this game to them...
If we are 7-9 (77.8%) we are one possession away. This team needs to become better at FT shooting
We are getting open looks, Dicky V.
This is a tuff game and Robinson and LeVert have been putrid...and we were in it untill the end....good things will come out of this game....
Ejim was the best player on the court tonight. GRIII and Levert were non-factors. With the exception of Stauskas, this was a really disappointing game. A lot of mistakes on offense and defense, and they really missed having Burke as a leader at the end of the game. The last few minutes were a mess.
It's early with some important changes in the makeup of the team guys. This game will hardly have any impact on our season. Just gotta work on the team D and get Robinson to stop forcing shots. He's gone from one extreme to the other and I'm starting to think he's just not that good at creating his own shot, as much a everyone wants him to.
None of these guys have had to carry the load in a crunch time situation like this before. No Trey or Timmy to take these big shots. Someone needs to emerge. I think it may end up being Stauskus and Walton later in the season.
Shitty game. They couldn't miss, and we couldn't throw it in the ocean. Miserable game to watch. That said, we'll have a good season if we can stay healthy.
GRIII just never got into the flow of the game. Everything from him was rushed.
Or found a way to blame the game on Borges.
Not quite...but close.
People need to relax. Winning is more fun, but November basketball is meaningless.
So you seriously just compared Beielin with Borges. I hope you are drunk.
Because your reading comprehension sucks.
The freak outs aren't that different. And wait...before this season is done some moron is going to go off on the job Beilein is doing.
Do you think they will storm the court?
And if we step back, its nice to be in this position. Just 3 or 4 years ago we were rushing the court for beating #4 Duke, now people rush the court for beating us. We're a team to get excited about beating now which is pretty cool. Hail to Beilein as usual
Thanks for saying this, it actually makes me feel better!!
Team looked lost out there without Burke or Hardaway to take big shots at the end.
Its hard to win when you cant make any baskets
We didn't finish the game. The refs are shitty and fucked us over in the national championship game too but they're not the reason we lost.
in the last minute.
Young team in a hostile environment for the first time this season, not worried about this team long-term. I think they will still be a clear cut top ten caliber team by the end of the season.
NCAA tournament is about where you are at the end of the year.
He definitely does not play soft. He was a beast on the glass, especially on the o-boards. And he fouled out. Not saying its 100% true, but generally fouling out != soft.
Refs + cold shooting = losing to good team.
In a "real" game Irvin wouldn't have seen the floor and Walton would not have seen as much time, especially in the first half. I'd love to see them in the tourney. Just love it.
Michigan went 0-7 after that give and go with Nik and GR3
GRIII - if he is what the NBA is looking for, no wonder no one watches that league anymore.
I know it's illegal to criticize a student athlete, but can someone tell me what GR3 does well, other than dunk?
Rebound, run the floor, defend the perimeter.
They went into panic mode and just started bombing threes. Unacceptable composure from this team.
Yeah, they forgot to enter the "aging chamber" before the game and get older and wiser.
One freshman got significant minutes tonight, with seven players from last years team. The youth argument doesn't work here.
Yeah..and neither do you!
First road game for a somewhat young team, it happens. They will most likely get better in those situations as the season goes along, and be where people think they should be by the end of the season.
I didn't think anyone brought out UNACCEPTABLE around here anymore....
this game has been over...yet the ending is still taking for-ever
Muh high vertical. Robinson is a mediocre shooter with a less than mediocre handle. He's going to have a bad year now that Burke isn't spoonfeeding him.
Not an and one there? Ok.
Not sure what kind of year he is going to have but he might reach Al Borges level on this board by Mid-Jan.
but then I realized the season is soooooo long and Al Borges doesn't call plays for our b ball team so I'm not to upset
