First time that's ever been a subject line. Don't want to put too much into one game, but as a winnable road game coming off a loss, it'd be nice to get this one. 8:30 BTN (assuming MSU/PSU doesn't run long for some dumb reason). Go Blue, make it just like football.
Michigan vs. Nebraska Basketball Open Thread
We're 6-0 coming off losses, as I recall, so let's make it 7-0. GO BLUE!
we haven't lost consectutively this season, it's still disheartening to see losses @Iowa and @Arkansas. Avoid a slow start today and a W should be easy to pick up against one fo the bottom 2 in the Big Ten this year, which includes the anemic Penn State squad.
Let's Go Blue!
I'm nervous. Not sure how we're going to respond given our road history.
We've been decent on the road this year.
Huh? In every road game except Purdue (and Oakland, which was hardly a road game), we've fallen behind by a ton of points in the first half and ended up losing.
Gus Johnson calling it tonight? Here's hoping
Methinks we are going to get delayed getting to the start of our game seeing as there is still 9:51 left in this one and it's already 8:08.
If THJ's first shot tonight is an uncalled for, early in the shot clock 3 pointer, I may just cry. We need him to bounce back. NOW! Go Blue!
Weak defensive opponent like this? I can see Beilein telling THJ at some point "Just go. Do shit. Figure it out."
But if Tim hoists up a quick three, that could be a sign that he still feels confident in his shot. We can't have him be tentative, either.
I just want him to be aggressive. I want him to attack the basket and get to the FT line. He's the most athletic kid on the team. Use that athleticism and get to the rim.
Getting to the rim on your first couple shots can do wonders for confidence (especially somebody who's in a slump)
Thisi is a winnable game, but I really want it to be convincing. Things I'm looking for: I want Novak to hit some threes, Hardaway to contribute a little more scoring like we know he can, and Trey continuing his awesome freshman year.
Beat the huskers!
Does anyone know of any potential free streams for the poor, btn-less amongst us?
Anyone else notice the "Beat Ohio" chant by the Izzone? Lol little brother...
Did they really chant that?
I don't know how to react...
this game is over. switch to ours.
Man, they need to tighten up those rims at the Breslin. Every touch of the rim results in a huge *CLANK*.
With the way THJ has been playing lately, I wonder if benching him to start a game might be a good thing. Let him get a feel by watching and see what happens.
nah, we need him and he's in.
where can i find the over/under for mentions of alex kozan in this thread?
Good to see THj posting up, but I was hoping that shot would drop for him.
man, you know you're cold when you miss that.
that will be there all night. thj has to take it with authority.
Novak with 1,000 career points!
He's really having a nice senior season.
Sometimes that's by design. Against MSU, we frequently dropped three guys everytime a shot went up to prevent them from getting in transition.
He doesn't bother with offensive rebounds so they can get back on defense. Giving up put-backs to prevent fast breaks.
Novak with 1000 career points!!
Nothing is falling easy for TH lately. That was a nice move to the basket that just didn't fall.
1000 career points for Novak.
Thank you Zack.
Winning this game in a blowout would send a message.
Adam Smotrycz just came off the bench... maybe this is Evan's alter ego who can shoot threes, handle the ball, and hustle on defense.
Hardaway just needs a game where he scores 25+ so he can get his confidence back. With two early easy looks this may be the game, but he actually has to make the shots first...
That Curious George reading commercial was the most annoying thing I've seen all week.
This seems like as good a time as any to start reading your posts in Hawking's voice.
Hardaway is playing like a sack of nuts.
To be fair, so is nearly everyone else.
man, NU keeps missing, but we gotta hit some shots too.
damn it Smotrycz
We're doing diddly-poo offensively. Go inside!!!
It's like a bunch of retards trying to hump a doorknob out there...
