Not sure why fans have a problem with rushing the court. It's fun.
Michigan vs Penn State bball open thread
Ha fair point on the home team, but I still think it's pretty ridiculous. You're the reigning Big Ten champions and the most storied program in the conference. You shouldn't be rushing the court for Wisconsin four games into the conference season.
Well... Wisky's going to be playing with a chip on their shoulder on Saturday... Should help our mentality knowing that they are beatable, however.
Don't really like having to play a revenge-minded Wisconsin next.
Why? We're not the ones they're seeking revenge against.

and jump around. We won the half!! Let's show Indiana what a silly celebration looks like!!
Was that Zoidberg in the stands?
Need company for a basketball game? Why not Zoidberg?
I know I'm not alone in this but I won't be changing the channel after the game
This half time seems longer than usual for some reason
How many front end of 1&1s has Nik missed this year. Seems like a ton.
Did anyone else notice that the official Michigan Basketball twitter @umbball is suspended?
Handle is @umichbball
Dat Crisler home-cookin'. Oh wait, that was on Morgan? Sheeit.
Seriously though. The camera man is loving him that dance team girl.
Anyone else getting a weird chirping noise in the background or is that just my cable?
Lead down to 3, PSU on a 14-3 run going back to the 1st half.
i feel like Levert is missing some pick and roll passes that Stauskas sees.
When we need points, Caris is there.
If Caris Levert has no interest in playing defense, sit his ass on the bench. I'm so sick of watching this.
guys are standing around on defense
Yep, well, we're doing that thing where we let a bad team hang with us again.
This a pathetic team defensively. Absolutely pathetic
Beilein needs to realize this and start going to the zone. Our defense against screens is horrible and people take us one on one to the hole for 2 seemingly at will.
A zone doesn't automatically cover up for lack of defense, if teams can beat us 1 on 1 off the dribble, and can easily penetrate the zone that way, welcome to dunks and lay ups all day.
Levert with one of his patented turnovers
to specialize in that category.
I sincerely had hope for our defense for a lot of that 1st half, but now we're just standing around looking thoroughly uninterested in defending. I guess that was more a product of Penn State turning the ball over on all the possessions than our defense though.
We played good defense the first 15 minutes but since then it's been pretty awful.
This is ridiculous. This team finds a way to keep every opponent in the game no matter how outclassed they ought to be. Don't get me wrong, it's not like we're an elite team ourselves. But we ought to be solidly ahead of a bad team that spent most of the game playing very poorly.
GO TO THE ZONE, JOHN B!!!!!!
I wonder if JB doesn't think the players are ready for the zone? Have we played it at all?
Wow they can't miss a shot. Points on 7 of their last 8 trips.
PSU scoring on almost every possession now. This is ridiculous.
Every team we play shoots over 50% from the floor. I'm old fat and out of shape, but the way this team plays defense I could pick up 4 other Mgobloggers and we would shoot above 50%
The good news is that 14 of our 18 baskets have been assisted.
supposed to be this close.
out rebounded by a 3 guard lineup?
Horford has always been a surprisingly good free throw shooter for a big.
Now we've picked up the defensive intensity.
with the alley oop suction cup hands.
and boom goes the dynamite
