Soft and sloppy... That's us!
Michigan vs OSU Open Thread
This is really Dissapointing to watch this team play frightened of Ohio. Scared to finish....scared to defend. This is disgusting. I can't wait for the infusion of individual talent that is coming next year.....gotta love Clark Kellogg's commentary. This is a hellish situation.....
amazing that we aren't down by 20+
let's get going already
How has Michigan been "soft"? Sloppy, yes. It's difficult to be aggressive when defense=foul.
Nut up, Blue!
Mclimans is in. Mother of God.
I believe he took a class with the GERG. Sweet locks!
Hey announcers, Ohio is NOT Minny.
What did the commentators allude to as far Matta "switching" things up, almost keeping UM on their toes? I just got to turn the game on...is it just superior defense right now by Ohio?
There we go Stu, good smart shot, keep it up!
I get that we look awful, but this doesn't invalidate anything we accomplished during the season.
I guess I would rather have them get this out of their system now. We have not really done anything well today. Haven't gotten any calls, but we haven't deserved them either. Everyone looks lost.
How has this team accomplished anything this season. They have no consistency, red hot or ice cold. So frustrating!
Who knew that watching a game play-by-played by a former buckeye would suck so bad.
I disagree with all of these posters saying Michigan is playing scared. They're undersized and the whistles are blowing at will. Do you want them to foul out in the first half?
There is nothing we can do about the size, but he have to play with more toughness
Well, they sure are not playing with the intensity that is needed. They are small, and the get called on everything, this is ridiculous. They better get this sorted out for the tourney.
Timmy just looks disinterested right now
Down by 12, 5:30 left
Timmy nutter up on that one
Before you guys get too bent out of shape, keep in mind that 1) we're playing on less than 24 hours' rest, which we won't have to do again and 2) we're playing a better opponent than anyone we'll face next weekend.
With our lack of depth, we're not well-constructed for a BTT run. But in the NCAA tournament it'll be much less of an issue.
OSU is playing on less rest than us. They seem to be running up and down the court and playing both defense and offense. To our credit, it is much harder to play when your heads are up your asses.
OSU's roster is better-suited to play on a quick turnaround. They have more depth (although Matta doesn't always use it) and interior scoring isn't as affected by tired legs as perimeter shooting is.
How about you show up today
Excellent effort by Morgan so far....
Man, can Sullinger just leave for the NBA already?
Good thing the OSU player wasn't lying out of bounds with the ball...
Minnesota would've given OSU a tougher match up.
How is that not traveling?
Seen enough, Coach?
can't defend sully.. and he knows it.. look at that smug SOB smile.. such a dick
Mattison to dive for the loose balls.
Novak really seems to have found his legs since the IU game
possession arrow should stay with us
I don't think the OSU player had possession. If he had possession, yeah I think Zack committed a foul but this is not THAT case.
Are they looking to T up Novak here? Hit to the head?
OSU is showing why they were ranked so high early in the season
Did Sullinger win a contest to earn the "foul immunity card" or something?
Everyone is playing like shit.
Fuck fuck fuckity fuck
we are lucky things worked out and we got a share of the championship
If I was John Beilein I'd want to strangle each an every guy on the team screaming wake the hell up!
Can we play any worse? This is getting pretty bad...
Cut it to ten and we have a shot. The sky hasn't fallen yet. Yes we look AWFUL but there's another half to play.
