If we can manage to keep this within 10-12 we'll have a chance. Shooting like garbage and Sullinger will start to cool off.
Michigan vs OSU Open Thread
I keep hoping that Michigan will go on a run and get it under 10 by half too. But, there has been no improvement whatsoever and the lead just continues to grow. No runs are coming tonight.
Last night Burke was stepping up. Tonight there isn't a single player that is doing anything positive.
After these last two days I think the white uniforms need to be burned and thrown away.
Alright Tim, cut this to 11, here we go!
Sullinger = ahole
C'mon Timmah. Make those FT's
God nothing pisses me off more than missed free throws, which we do a lot of
MAKE YOUR FUCKING FREE THROWS
Hit your fucking throws man
and free throws...
Cmon, guys. Get your damn heads in the game. No way Hardaway should miss 2 of 3 from the line.
Down by 14, I guess free throws aren't important. You've got to be fucking kidding Hardaway. 1-3 when you get fouled shooting a three.
Novak is currently our hardest working rebounder.
We need to balance our team better from here out. The dead eye shooter concept is too iffy because they usually don't shoot the ball well. We are a poor free throw team and really weak inside. Hard to watch. We have overachieved this year.
Missed free throws, lazy turnovers, poor shooting cannot happen against good teams and expect to win.
Blatant travel by Craft.
Trey and THJ have got to start shooting better at the line.
Stu needs to get a damn talking-to. That was absolutely inexcusable.
Boy if that doesn't sum up this game.
AND YOU DON'T GET THE SHOT OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
wow Stu. wow.
Dumb ass play by Stu!
Get diarrhea at halftime.
Great fucking job Stu...Go sit on the bench for the rest of the game
what the fuck are you waiting for Stu, shit
Really sums up the first half.
Douglas! You're a senior you need to have that timing down. C'mon man.
Here's my very technical analysis of the first half.
Sullinger: playing great.
Every single player with a Michigan jersey: awful.
Stu can't even fucking get a shot off in time. Ugh.
Add poor clock management from our senior guard.....what a shit show. We look like Pretenders.
but yeah I wouldn't expect her to do any better...
from stupendous to just plain stu-pid.The whole team thus far.
Nice play call coach. Everyone needs to be ass chewed at half.
You idiot, you had all the time in the world. Make up for it in the 2nd half...
nice play by a senior there... hope the new recruits have better basketball iq
Craft allowed to run rampant on D. I'd guess I'd like to see us beat the crap of whoever has the ball too.
here was Purdue's coach Matt Painter after yesterday's game:
“One of their bigs was just grabbing our players out in the open on a ball screen defense and I just pointed it out,” Painter said. “I said ‘He has both his hands around him.’ (the official) stares right at it and ignores him so, I can’t repeat what I said to him.”
tough shot for stu, you rarely see a guy miss time a shot by so much; there was no doubt the clock ran out before the shot left his hand...
If you're gonna dribble it that much at least get to the basket. With these refs they're gonna call the foul more often than not.
Can we change unis at the half...
And of course a spartan fan calls me to talk shit the moment halftime hit. What a fucking asshole.
Burke's legs are dead. His jumpers are all short and he looks gassed whenever they show a closeup, which is what happens when you play 45 minutes less than 24 hours before another game. We don't have much of a chance unless he finds his second wind at halftime.
~350 posts at half. Time to start a 2nd half thread?
Yuppppp. Love the idea of a fresh thread for a fresh, new half. Great suggestion.
I hope this disgrace fuels some passioned rage we'll get to see in the second half.
can we leave all the trolls in this thread?
