Michigan vs. Northern Michigan Mens Bball Open Thread
Your sig needs updating.
Is anyone esle getting Syracuse stuff on the radio stream? I clicked on the link from mgoblue.com, but it's definitely not Michigan basketball for me.
I'm getting the same
Syracuse IMG Network. Sent an e-thank-you to CBSSports.com.
Watching the Gametracker alone is so exciting!! Especially on the debut of this team!
I'm going to have to listen to this on the radio like some sort of barbarian.
I'm listening to Syracuse. This would be so much easier if it was on BTN.
Listening on the radio instead of paying for a live stream. Excited to listen to some Michigan basketball action!
Albrecht hits a 3. 3-0 Michigan early
Where can I find an audio stream of it? I tried Wtka, but the online player isn't working for me.
Wow! Great start for the freshman. Albrecht hits a 3, Robinson hits a 3, and now Abrecht has chance of 3 point play.
Spike is doing work
GRIII hits a three and Albrecht gets an and 1
8-0 Michigan with a free throw coming up
Spike for 3! Great start! GR3 for 3! Spike with another basket! Too much action to keep up!
GRIII with a triple and Spike with an and-1 layup. 9-0 good guys
Hardaway for 3!
Hardaway for three 12-0 Michigan
Crap I payed for it! :/
Gah. Me too.
Here ya go.
OP should edit this into his post
spartanfan??? doing some early scouting?
Been dying for some basketball after a dissapointing football season.
MSU's exhibition was on the same link on tuesday, so i gave it a shot.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
You're the man.
you are my hero. I can't thank you enough!
Holy crap...Robinson another 3.
Where are you guys watching the game? The MGoBlue.com link isnt working for me
I paid for it on bigten.com
17-0. Wow. Good start.
Vogrich lays it up 17-0 Michigan
TH2 with another 3 for Michigan! Now GR3 again! Wow way too much action to keep up. 17-0 Michigan!
Uniforms dont look bad at all.
They look sweet
Michigan finally missed a three, Vogrich. Albrecht looking really good at the point.
Mitch McGary in now.
Hard to ask for a better start than this. 17-2 Michigan. Its gonna be a good year.
Looking real good. What radio station is carrying this game? I am hoping to listen while on a plane.
Why isn't Jon Horford playing? Is his knee still bad?
Beilein said he isn't playing tonight. He may be back for season opener.
Stauskas is gonna be deadly this year from deep.
So exciting seeing all the freshman out there
Michigan basketball, Backwoods Bastard. Not a bad combo.
I was just about to say how stupid it is that we can't watch this and someone pulled through with a clutch link. Thanks.
Just reading through this thread has me really excited. WOOOO!
Big Bird Blake.
Freshman making a big impact on this game.
Damn work comp sucks so bad that I can only get about 4 seconds of stream inbetween skips.
I really hope Thorin gets a capture of this.
One thing I've noticed is our big men are not setting very good screens. Would like to see better pick and roll action when Trey comes back.
I've only been watching for a few minutes but I also had that observation. We'll see what happens with that.
Gessh I'm chewing my nails like its the NCAA tournament. I want to see these frosh succeed so bad. I'm tired of all my Indiana friends chirping about there class but they are totally unaware of the class (the better class) we brough in.
29-13 Michigan with Albrecht going to the line after the break.
Morgan looks a lot skinnier this year ... ?
I hardly recognized Chrisler when I walked in amazing dig and now we have a team to defend it!!
A line-up is in with no freshman. They have yet to score.
The no freshman line-up has went 4 minutes without scoring...
These student announcers are absolutely brutal. "That advantage is an advantage."
Give them a break. You can't expect Gus Johnson type of commentary with these student run broadcasts.
Yeah, I'm pretty forgiving but these guys clearly don't know much about basketball. If you're gonna be a broadcaster, you should really know more about the game.
Why are they doubling every screen?
I hate that our c is trying to slide in for a charge on a layup rather than going for the trailing block
Feed craps out on me every three seconds. :(
I thought it was because my work comp is a toaster.
It's not just you, I ended up having to just switch on the radio and Shep isn't even doing the PBP tonight.....stupid Eastern football.
Indiana is struggling vs Indiana Wesleyen
McGary missed 2 free throws, didn't look good at all on them.
I know it's hugely premature and the feed sucks, but Stauskas is good. So smooth out there in his shot, dribble and body control.
McGary doing well on the boards.
McGary with rebound, basket, and the foul.
McGary with rebounds off of 2 different sets of free throws...And then making a later free throw (that one looked good haha).
Robinson, basket and the foul with a nice pass from Hardaway
Our freshmen are good.
38-21 Michigan at the half.
Ughh, lack of awareness at the end of the half. Definitely excited with the freshman play that half. Can't wait to see what Trey can do with them.
They've allowed NMU to go on a run. Yes, I blame the Announcers
I'm actually surprised at how good they are. Student announcers are typically atrocious.
Double dribble on number 35! Where''s the ref?!
Team reminds me a lot of the Fab Five first year in that they would go on runs but then let the other team back in it. Defense is going to have to improve but it is to be expected with Freshman.
It's hard to play sound team defense when you're changing lineups this much.
Ya that is true. There have been times they looked really good on D but there has also been /facepalm moments.
Can someone update on leading scorers, rebounders?
Awesome. Thanks man. I went to ESPN but they don't believe there is a game happening apparently.
They probably listed them during the half but I wasn't listening. I don't see anything showing stats.
live advanced stats link
Spike looks pretty good. I feel better about him spelling Burke. Northern Michigan and all, but he's a very competent back up it seems
Did anyone else feel that chill when all 5 freshmen were in the game at the same time..spooky!
lol ya it was great. Not nearly as athletic as the Fab Five but can shoot the lights out.
One of the impressive things is that with all these freshman out there Michigan only has four turnovers so far.
Albrecht for 3
Albrecht for another 3...
The team looks great. I've got to say I'm not in love with the new uniforms though. Maybe the maize ones will look better.
Open Gangdam style...oh my god...no
It's not "open" - it's "Opha" which is Korean for 'older brother', but in this case is a term that girls would call a boy that they like.
Nice photo posted on Twitter:
@umichbball Here's a look inside the new Crisler Center concourse. The House that Cazzie built: pic.twitter.com/spqp0h0n
GRIII...steal and dunk.
Alley opp to GRIII
Do you not get it?
Nik for 3
OHHH McGary Jam in transition!
Nik Stauskas = future all-time leading scorer? Jeez this kid doesn't miss!
Considering we always seem to play down to our early season cupcakes, the way we are looking against the Northerns makes me think this is a great team. (...plus the never ending preseason hype)
McGary looks like a beast but you can tell, he is going to fall for many Ball fakes
"McGary and Stauskas are like the twin towers coming down on him"
I could almost hear his pained facial expression as he realized what he said.
clearly an LOTR II reference. BOOM NERD"D.
Mcgary looks to be a great defemsve player.
ya and rebounder, man he just keeps pulling them down on both ends of the floor.
At least we finally have some depth. Quick fouls no longer means long stretches of Mclimans.
I'm liking LeVert, but he won't really contribute for a couple years.
couple years? Why not next year?
"Biefeldt and McGary under the basket looking like the twin towers coming down on Northern"???
These guys are brutal. Haha
The way the game has gone you almost forget Burke's not out there. Cant wait to see what this team can do this season.
This team look really good. Really good. THJ still thinks he's a little better than he is, though. I hope he learns how to play within himself this year. We have enough weapons that he doesn't need to go into SUPERCHARGER mode.
I think Hardaway is a four year player. I just can't see him getting drafted in the NBA. I think he's already been pushed out of the top three on this team. Is he even top 5? We'll see as the year goes.
LaVert for 3
LeVert= Manny Harris? Just unpolished?
and muscle and maybe. He's definitely crafty but has a lot to learn.
Certainly, I mentioned before that he probably wouldn't be a true contributer for a couple years.
Just concurring that he needs polish and some size. I think him and Spike are two steals for the class as multi year players.
Manny Harris was polished?
McGary with a monster block.
to check this team out in person next Friday! The most talented UM team we've seen in a long time.
69-37 Michigan so far
Especially the zoom in's to her eyes
"Guys, I spoke to the NMU coach and he said although they're losing, he is proud of his team. Back to you, guys" is way more than the sideline reporter in Lincoln was able to give us about Denard's injury.
Seems like the two major takeaways here is McGary is someone who can maybe protect the rim, which is a new thing for us and most importantly it looks like Albrecht can spell Burke without having the offense totally stall, which should let us play Burke big minutes in March without losing effectiveness.
Man, Vogrich can't buy a bucket tonight.
Morgan is looking pretty good.
That's what Hardaway needs to do.
Hardaway has handles now!? B1G better watch out this year.
Wow, Nik ..another 3 most impressive of the night.
Stauskas is a straight baller.
Do we have a different PA guy? He sounds a little different than the "FREE PIZZA!" guy.
I want moar awkward closeups of the sideline reporter.
I can't wait for this team to take on someone with a pulse...I really want to see them play at 100%...It just seems like they are toying with Northern....and by toying, I mean destroying.
The freshmen with 54 of Michigan's 80 points.
Add a 1st team All-American to this team? Yes, please!
lol ya for real. It is crazy this is without Burke.
80-45 Michigan 2 minutes left and Beilein is emptying the bench.
I'm glad we'll be seeing less of Eso this year.
Do those white brace things provide any actual support or are they just knee pad type things?
83-47 Michigan final.
Whatever stream that was, it was extremely high quality and worked on my phone. Hopefully future games are on that site.
I love you Coach Beilein...
I predicted 84-48 before the game. 83-47 wasn't that far off. Good stuff from the team tonight. Its gonna be great year if we stay healthy and keep improving.
As a captain is wrong. . I don't care how hard he works in practice or how whether he's an upperclassman you don't name the least talened player (by a longshot) on your team captain.
Neg me to Bolivia it's true.
he is only captain for the night foolio...
I think the announcer said that he is the permanent captain and then a new player will be named before every game to be the co-captain.
I think you're giving Corey Person too much credit.
The best players doesn't necessarily mean that they're a good captain. It's about displaying leadership and is a calming influence to the team. Bartelstein displayed that characteristics. The players voted for Bartelstein so he earned it.
You sure it was the players? It appears the coaches made the choice:
Beilein says Bartelstein was a unanimous decision among coaches for captain.
Beilein on captain selection: "We thought long and hard about this. ...(Bartelstein) is the most selfless person I've ever coached."
named captain. Of anything. Ever. Ass.
captain of ass?
Are you his ex girlfriend?
Russell Byrd is a captain for MSU. He's been riding the bench his career. Being a captain isn't about talent, its about the intangibles.
he was on the bench because he was hurt for most of his career, not because he was not talented. He'll play because he is a very good shooter.
With Burke this team is lethal... I love it can it be March Maddness already???
Very, very promising start. Very happy to see a lot of our holes filled. Rim protection, check. Viable back up PG, check and then some. True three point assassin, check. Athleticism, check. Morgan looks like he's really stepped up his game. I'm really looking forward to this season. Also, Backwoods Bastard is delicious.
Good showing, especially with no Burke or Horford. Great to see Hardaway having a very balenced well played game. Go Blue!
Are there going to be enough basketballs to go around for this team?
We laid 83 on NMU without Trey Burke or Jon Horford. It will be interesting to see how Trey distributes and gets his points with so many scoring threats up and down the bench.
It should be a lot of fun watching this team throughout the season and we shouldn't see those long scoring droughts that we have seen in seasons past.
I expect the rotation to get smaller as coach B figures out what is his best 9 or so guys. You are right though, with Trey and Horford coming back it is going to squeze the min from other players.
Trey, THJ, GRIII, McGary, Morgan, Stauskas, Horford and Albrecht. The last spot would go between Vogrich and LeVert with Vogrich getting the edge with experience and shooting ability.
Levert may redshirt
It's not like football where you can redshirt freshmen. I expect LeVert to see PT especially early on against bad teams to get more experience and he is one of the player that most mentioned as one of the more impressive player in practice.
"It's not like football where you can redshirt freshmen."
What do you mean? Players can be redshirted in basketball
Unless they get hurt.
"On using exhibition games to determine redshirts:
We’ll probably look at them. I think we have necessities in a lot of areas where it would be tough to redshirt some, but if we feel somebody’s not going to get significant playing time and he’d be a great one to have in a fifth year, we’d make sure they had all the information they needed to make that decision."
it's not very common to redshirt freshman unless they are hurt.
This team is absolutely loaded. Optimism is further secured because Michigan honestly has the best coach in the country. Nobody gets their guys to play defense, make adjustments, and get open looks better than Johnny Basketball. Coaching is key.
The freshmen are as advertised. GRIII looks like the best athlete on the team and will give team a lot of problem. McGary is basically a bigger version of Novak without the shooting. He is an energy guy who can rebound and defend. Stauskas is a sniper but showed good playmaking ability. His shooting threat will allow him to drive into the lane and find open players with ease. Spike will be a solid backup PG who can spell Trey for 10 minutes which is plenty for the season. Caris will be a combo G but is bascially jack of all trades.
THJ have displayed more willingness to rebound and find open players. He is not forcing shots which is a good thing. Having Trey back will only help THJ to develop shooting rhythm. Jordan Morgan is solid as always but will miss some easy shots which is still maddening.
Yes, it's NMU but they blew them out which is expected. A lot of positives in this game. Just don't play Eso and McLimans until it's garbage time.
Morgan has been either number one or two in FG percentage in the B1G 2 seasons running. If you're getting annoyed at his misses get annoyed at something else.
But it's pretty easy when you get it from dunks and layups. He is not the kind you would want to run your offense through him because he can't make jump shots and doesn't make post moves. For a guy who "shoot" over 60%, he misses a lot of easy shots.
Are we winning?
Son of a........ Damn you Borges!!!
Does anyone happen to have a replay of this game?
4pm Monday on BTN, set your DVR.
Coach B has done an excellent job recruiting, coaching, and developing our basketball program. We really picked a winner when he was selected to bring Michigan basketball back to greatness. Hat's off to coach B, and the new additions to our team. With that being said we have to be cautiously optimistic. We played Northern Michigan tonight. That means there was no pressure, inferior competition, and inferior coaching. We shouldn't declare ourselves B10 champions quite yet. I'm as excited as everyone else, but we need to beat some D1 competition before we set expectations for this year. With the talent we have returning, the coaching, and the new addtions to our team we SHOULD compete for a B10 title, and possibly a deep run in the big dance. But, I also think on this board we tend to get impatient sometimes. We need to remember some of our new guys will probably go through some growing pains as the season progresses. And we need to be as supportive as possible, and set a great atmosphere. I think its important for us as fans to encourage a positive playing atmosphere for our players. With that being said HAIL, GO BLUE, and I'm excited for the season!
Would love to see Hardaway have more stat-sheet-stuffing lines like tonight's--13 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists, and 1 steal.
Coach Hoke will have his team on par nationally like Coach B does right now in about two years. Can't wait!!
Is Anyone gonna upload the game video ?
AFAIK, mgoblue.com has never uploaded a video of an entire game. If you are talking about mgovideo.com then, yes.
but you have to have a "Premium" membership with one of their esteemed Corporate Partners. (Not the same corporate partner that screwed up the audio broadcast.)
Hopefully the game against our friends from Slippery Rock is on a free stream too as well as Monday's exhibition.
It should be. That site just streams everything on the big ten digital network
I know this was the first game and against Northern Michigan, but man, this team can be scary good...they have some depth, I'm excited
