Gus Johnson doing the game, love it
Michigan vs Northwestern MBall open thread.
Has anyone heard anything about Greg Brown leaving the program? There's a scout.com thread (pay wall) on their forum. I guess he put message on facebook and said he was going back to Ohio and shortly after deleted his profile. I don't know if people are just miss informed or it's true...any insight from mods, or insiders?
There don't seem to be actual streams in that thread, just suggestions on how to search for them. Hope someone tracks one down!
Streams have greatly suffered from the recent crackdown.
I hope something pops up cause I was supposed to go to the game but am coming down with something so staying home.
Wooo Gus Johnson!!
john shurna is on the all face team.......somebody forgot to tell him not to stand in front of the dart board
sloppy half so far
It's a morgue in here tonight. I'd be surprised if there were any more than 7k in attendance.
06:30 PM | Northwestern at Michigan | 420TV2-ST 265k
Before you open StreamTorrent you MUST do one of the following:
Option 1: Change your computer date back 1 year to 2010. Now install and/or manually open Stream Torrent. Be sure the icon has loaded in your task tray (and wait for the red x to vanish; be patient). Now you are connected. Click on a ST link. Once ST has loaded, you may change your date back to the current date. You must do this every time you completely close ST in your tasktray.
UPDATE! : A few posters have had to leave their date set to 2010. Try this if you have issues setting your date back today's date.
Option 2: Go here: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/run_as_date.html Works instead of changing the date back and forth. You just have to untick the Move Time Forward option. Also the x64 version doesn't seem to work.
NOTE: If you are connected to ST and the view screen opens, and it says still not connected... be patient it takes a while to load especially the first time using it.
I am certainly no programmer, but isn't it weird that nobody has managed to do a StreamTorrent or sopCast equivalent for Mac when those programs have been out of years?
Those links always kill me when I can't find web streams. I used to run a windows partition on my MacBook simply for that, but don't have it anymore :(.
I couldn't figure out why it didn't work for me anymore - you solved a serious headache. And being in Korea, this is the only way I can watch UM play.
While streamtorrent is now working, this particular stream is down for me. Is it working for anyone else?
That zoomed in camera angle is pure garbage. You can't see anything.
considering how bad were shooting, I'm glad were only down one
we are playing decent D so far
wooooo great sequence, morgan running the floor, Smotrycz with an opportunity at a 4 point play
so far it's looking good, at least from what i see on espn.com.
it seems like we never shoot free throws anymore and when we do we miss them.....shit
there are 2 ends to the basketball court. play some defense.
Pretty sure I saw lloyd brady in the stands.
I guess we can just mark it down as a W.
yes. i see him on tv. he is 2nd row just left of the half court line, just in from the aisle, behind the o'reilly auto parts sign.
it seems like everybody is driving to the basket now. i like it. the confidence is building...
Gus johnson.....just compared manny and timmy hardaway.....thoughts?
I like Hardaway's game, but one area there's no comparison is on the defensive end.
Potentially yeah, I can see the comparison.
i saw manny as more polished as a frosh though. better rebounder. better finisher at the rim. i could see hardaway doing more damage on the break and being a better shooter in the years to come.
Manny couldn't elevate like that!!!
That was ridiculous call.
He's got the goofiest stride, anyone else notice?
Yeah I did notice that
cutting off for like 15 second continually?
yea mine is doing the same thing
I've seen the "technical difficulties" screen come up three times, first time briefly, 2nd time longer with 3rd time following right after. But not continuously.
just felt my dick move
Morris to Morgan for the flush.
Yeah that was incredibly sick. Darius has some impressive flash.
Morgan getting a lot more opportunities than usual..and taking advantage of them!
He's also getting a lot better.
Morgan is dominating.
In other news, the cameras not only are zoomed in too far but the cameras aren't properly color corrected either.
Morgan is the next Hakeem Olajuwon
He has been good this year and I have seen him open and not get the ball a lot of times in previous games. I'm glad to see them giving him the ball and him producing with it.
novak just got hacked
Absolutely killing them on pick and roll!
hell of a first half. Morgan is killing it
34-19 good guys at the half. VengeanceFest 2011 is rolling right along.
Morgan is on fire! Hopefully Northwestern overcompensates and the outside opens up.
What a great half of basketball, so much fun watching this team grow and gel.
up by 15 at the half, this is looking great!
Hideous first 12 minutes by both squads, really stepped it up after the under 8 timeout. Weird as hell line for Morgan for a starting center -- 17 points, 0 rebounds. Hardaway and Morris are shooting like dog crap but filling up elsewhere on the scoresheet -- 7 boards and 2 dimes for Hardaway, 5 and 5 for Morris.
How many wins would we need to get into the dance?
I think that 20 is the magic number
I really don't know if we should win this game.....seeing that it would drop Northwestern's RPI and all
HAHAHAHA! The Freep is fucking retarded! Win every game from here on out boys!
Have we had someone score 30 yet this season? Morgan may be the first
Blake Griffin's got nothing on Jordan Morgan.
The crazy thing along with Morgan dominating is that he has no fouls. Whaaaa??
is that he is an engineer
uh oh to the start of this half...
I don't see them outscoring us by 15, BUT we have had some crazy second halves that havent turned out so well
7-0 run to open up the half.
that's better. Maybe you are right.
Go back to Morgan. He unstoppable like Shaq in his prime.
GREAT response by this squad after they start it out 7-0... really nice to see
Many thanks, Tim and Stu!
Clutch 3 by Timmay
I am at school and can't find a stream can anybody tell me the score?
42-29 good guys with 15:58 to go.
Morris scores his first points
listening through mgoblue. The stream isn't working for me - offline- is it working for anyone else?
The mgoblue audio stream's crashed on me 5-6 times now. I'm using the board for my updates.
Apparently this game is being played in Evanston.
Morgan's butthole hurts after that call.
That's an awful long continuation there, but I'll take it.
Since when did Northwestern get an alternate logo like the only on the right-hand side of the page here?
That must be a mistake. It doesn't even look purple & white.
Morgan is growing up before our eyes just like Hardaway did down the stretch of the PSU game. We're getting some previews of things to come - I can't wait until these guys have been playing together for a year or two & play at these levels game in, game out.
Flashes of brilliance
F the B1G Network!!
Hardaway shows Darius how a guard is supposed to throw down a jam.
this team makes my dick hard
wow he's good
Bad call, Novak had him clean
I don't see NW coming all the way back to win this game, but they are slowly trimming the lead. Michigan has had a few chances to dig them deeper into the hole, but the defense isn't playing as well in the second half so far and it's allowing NW to slowly creep back in.
This is a sign of youth IME, hopefully as this team continues to grow they will learn to insert the dagger rather than letting the opponent linger
I mean we held Northwestern to 19 points in the first half and they are a good offensive team, they were bound to start hitting some shots
J-Mo really has to knock these down
Atleast were running some clock
It's time to put these guys away. Slow it down and get some good shots off.
Can't wait till hes a senior
Wow, NW has some really good outside shooters
hardaway is special hopefully he sticks around for his senior year
did morgan hit juice in the balls?
Just a little love tap.
Morgan checking Thompson's oil, whats up with that?
Just can't seem to finish these guys off. Their shooting amazing this half.
Reminds me of the NU game last year. We were up 15, and then they hit 5 straight 3s, and generally just couldn't miss in the 2nd half. It's a darned good thing we're scoring, because when a team is this hot from outside, completely putting them away is not really on the table.
Anyone else notice how much more professional the BTN seems without Tim Doyle?
If by "professional" you mean not referring to players as The Butterfly then yes, yes I do.
wait is gus johnson not talking about growing a stache.......the butterfly baby
Yeah it actually feels like a real basketball game on a real network, thankfully this "butterfly" crap has not gotten anywhere past Tim Doyle
I'm only able to follow this on Gamecast, so I have no idea about the details of the game, but I really think they should try to stop NW from scoring. That would help.
Now that Morgan has established himself as "Godzilla," it seems that a more appropriate nickname for Darius Morris would be "Mothra."
Getting a little close....
Uhhh are they gonna miss anytime soon
Gotta figure NW will miss a couple of these threes down the stretch. They have been dead-on this half.
What the hell man?!
Glad they just made a nice quick 14 points in about 2 minutes. Fuck.
I've gone from working to drinking in like three poesssions.
Refs this evening.
That lead went evaporated quickly. D Mo is awesome but he still plays out of control a lot and its hurting us.
This is too close.
Jordan Morgan is not amused by this bullshit.
That was a sick oop. We needed that.
I think we need to go deep on the depth chart and start getting something sponsored by Motel 8.
In a close game late, I'm not sure I like the ally-oop. It seems a bit high-risk compared to a bounce-bass and lay-up.
Well, we just missed on a bounce pass and layup.
I didn't think old-timers listened to bounce-bass filled music. Not sure how that would help us win either, but it sounds pretty bumpin
We took their best shot and look like we'll hold them off...pretty solid
hot dogging is really getting on my nerves. celebrate after the play.
Jordan Morgan's statline is truly amazing so far...
27 PTS (11-13 FG, 5/8 FT), 1 REB, 0 AST, 3 BLK
Not sure I've ever seen that before.
Club 33 trillion, 27 billion, 1 million, 1 thousand and three?
One other really weird stat: after going 1-2 at the line tonight, Stu Douglass is 3-10 on FTs for the season.
Atleast we make em when we need to
I double post like Morgan dunks. Hard and without prejudice.
Yeah but I think D Mo was expecting an Oop there as well.,we need to hit our free throws.
airballs from both teams tonite.
way to hold serve. don't lose focus and take care of business against IU. then who knows, maybe catch sparty in the standings.
I am pretty thrilled not to have to play Northwestern anymore, barring a Big 10 tournament meeting...
but a win....a much needed win
props to Jordan Morgan on a spectacular game
Don't like how we finished by letting them back in the game, but we got the W so i'm happy. The boys are still alive, making a run at the tourney hopefully.
Young team still needs to learn how to put the hammer down, but they managed to keep ahead of NW and pull away at the end.
The increment between teams isn't as large as it used to be. Consequently, the team that is trailing almost always makes a run. It's almost become a cliche. Sometimes you just have to give credit to the guys on the other side of the ball.
At any rate, it was a very good win; the W-L column doesn't have a column for "style points."
Lack of experience and mental toughness are more probably factors. I'm not necessarily lookout for a huge blowout, but how about not being sloppy handling the ball and not going into a scoring drought? And especially not turning the ball over in the backcourt and letting them get an easy hoop right after they just scored?
Sure, the other team makes a run. But it sure would be nice to see the run stop before the lead gets under five.
awesome coach. i can't think of another coach who alters the approach game-by-game as much as he does, depending on the opponent.
he adjusts the D based on the opponents strength.
and tonite, pounding it inside against a team lacking in skilled big men on D.
can't wait until next year.
This "hollow it out" idea is gaining steam in my brain.
shame on me for bad mouthing morgan after he opened the game by missing a layup. He would go on to miss just once more the rest of the game.
he shoulda made that one too
The future is bright, I fully expect to compete in the upper tier of the B1G next year and definitely a tourney bid. Add to that some solid players coming in, I see good things on the horizon.
That NW comeback scared the crap out of me. Somehow you just knew that was coming.
Beautiful offense tonight. We had 21 made two-pointers to only six threes. That's really what Beilein would like to see more often.
Anyone else see that ridiculous hair and molestache?
Maize Craze dude was more disturbing to me.
While everyone is drooling over Morgan's 27 point game, also notice that Tim Hardaway Jr had a double-double, and that Morris had 4 offensive rebounds. Awesome win!!!
Hate this team 2 weeks ago?
