Beat all of the indiana teams.
Michigan vs. Purdue basketball open thread
The first comment in what is sure to be 1000+.
Take care of business tonight. Go Blue.
Beat Purdon't! I want to see GR360 soar with the eagles..
neeed tooooo wiiiiiiiiiiiinn
Thread Jack: Brady Hoke made it onto Jeopardy today. Albeit, Rex Ryan was included as well.
If Purdue loses will they cut down the nets like that other team from Indiana?
We need to just play ball...don't worry about anything else...just play ball. GO BLUE!
Stauskas eye is really black but looks like he is going to play.
March is ours!
Does Purdue really want IU to win the conference? Do the right thing boilermakers.
30 tonight. Go Blue
Would be awesome to see GRIII go crazy tonight for 20+ points, just sayin.
Who else is scared D.J. Byrd is gonna come out stroking 3 after 3?
But Go Blue...and Go Defense. A replicated defensive performance of Sunday's game will help these guys learn and make that type of defense more than just a trend, but a nomalcy
Anyone know of a free live stream?
I'm watching on btn2go.com right now, but I'm also looking for a better free stream.
but vipbox.tv has a working stream of the game up.
Wow, it's like a Minecraft version of Michigan basketball!
It's not so bad when the camera isn't panning or zooming. Which is almost never, but still...
it is offline right now, but might come on when the game tips off.
As brothers. As a family.
No slow starts, energy on defense and offensive execution, let's go blue!
Let's Go Blue!
Pretty good D, two drawn fouls. I'm glad we're not coming out ice cold
Are they wearing last years blue unis?
Yeah, no idea why though... I like this years' unis
Purdue playing pretty aggressively.
They missed a 3! This is good!!
Two fouls early and making the free throws. I like it!
Yay, another steal.
Boo, pass that!
Ugh, THJ gotta finish that.
You got to pass that. He was covered. Robinson was not. This isn't the nba.
You're right, glad he missed.
All sarcasm aside, we need to make our layups. That was my point.
Another missed Hardaway layup.
Stauskas was a little Smotrycz-esque on that saunter to the hoop.
wow hardaway. wide open gr3 that was terrible
your damn avatar gets me every time...
I thought it was gonna be 7-0 then the missed layup and all of a sudden an and-1 for Purdue
I'm gonna say the black eye is to blame for that missed FT.
timmy still finishing badly lol
Someone tell Tim it's okay to get an assist every now and then.
Quit missing open fucking layups
layups or put backs in the first half. Oh, and how about get a defensive friggin' rebound, yes?
AHHHH can't find a stream! Help!
not great but gets the job done
but it's terrible.
THJ apparently not feeling it at the moment
I guess my stream is a bit behind.
They are pretty much handing this game to us
Well, it seems we'll get a number of attempts to convert turnovers.
Long 2s will be the death of me.
get a damn rebound
if Purdue is actually trying to turn the ball over constantly or not
We really need to box out and rebound better.
Lead is cut to 2.
with a terrible pass to Mitch
Tim is killing us early
We are winless in last season's blue uniforms. After this game, let's retire 'em.
since Burke and Morgan both had their jerseys rip in Minnesota...
Bad pass to McGary, leads to a U-M turnover. Follows that up by not being able to grab a defensive board, which leads to a Purdue bucket.
Looked like he was trying to play with fists instead of hands on that one.
still leaving his man on D way too early on the help.
can be great or terrible, very frustrating. He has single handedly kept Purdue in the game. We could easily have a 10 pt lead if not for his subpar play thus far
Dating back to the end of Penn State, Michigan is 0 for its last 19 3's. Lets make one please
THJ is sort of frustrating to watch. I know he's a really good player, but, err..
According to Tim Doyle Tim Hardaway should make those 3's 9/10 times
3 point shooting continues to be atrocious.
remember when we used to make 3s?
these 3 attempts aren't even close - brick city.
to take less 3's like that last one by caris and work the ball inside and also see more of the 2 bigs at the same time
What is an illegal screen? (Serious question, I don't want to sound like an idiot).
McGary picks up 2 fouls in 10 seconds.
you must be set. mcgary was definitely leaning into the defender as the guy was trying to get around him.
mcgary is not good a setting screens. he consistently doesn't get out far enough so he often slides into the defender or sets a useless unusable screen.
mcgary, you are not good at setting picks. sit please. bring morgan back in.
2 quick fouls on McGary. Hope Biefeldt is ready tonight
The end result is always always always a foul on our big guy. I dont know if we're just bad at it or what, but it seems like it is allllways a foul on us
is one of the best big guys i've seen at helping up top. he gets more steals at/near the 3 pt line for a big guy that i know. his low post D and rebounding needs significant work though.
Byrd with 2 fouls already, good.
Hardaway makes our first 3 in the last 20 attempts.
WHA? A three???
Congrats to THJ on eclipsing 1400 career points. Go blue
A THREE IT WENT IN!!!
Wow, almost forgot what it feels like to hit 3's.
More transition points! 14-7 the forces of heaven.
Purdue is playing like they don't want IU to win the title outright so far
Uh oh Purdue, Michigan is starting to roooooooooooooooooll.
Aaaargh Hardaway. Just aaaargh. Aaaaargh!
THJ breaks the long 3 drought!
I cant believe how much Purdue is turning it over. I'd be losing my mind if I was a Purdue fan
Worst free streaming ever, vipbox is unwatchable and firstrow still hasnt started yet. What a great time for thorin to be unable to post games on youtube, this sucks.
Is anyone keeping up with how many turnovers Purdue has so far
I love leading by more points than they have :)
So you love 1-0 leads?
I personally prefer 58-57 leads with the clock reading all zeros.
GR3 dribble driving! Love to see more of that
I do not want a 15 point lead...I'll take a 14 or 16 point lead please
I wonder how Glenn Robinson feels sitting in his old arena with his son on the opponent's team currently playing his alma mater.
UM 19, PUR 7
Michigan = 19
random Purdue bench player = 7
Purdue Athletics: We beat ourselves, so our opponents don't have to.
Can we get a gif of every Purdue turnover? They seem quite comical
Now 8 turnovers
True: PUR is playing really bad
True: UM is playing great - defensive energy, offensive movement, team passing! WE ON.
that Max got to play before Horford
while they're hitting nothing. Too often it feels like we don't take advantage of these spurts to take control of a game. Purdue will start hitting eventually, I just hope we're comfortably in front when that happens
Marchuch is ugly idc.
Lol. Obvious foul.
Good sign for the good guys. Where's Morgan?
Is he just a shooter?
Not just a double-dribbler.
LMAO STAUSKAS GETS FOULED more than anyone on dunks I swear
more than a shooter meme commence.
Is something wrong with Horford? Just surprised to see so many minutes for Max without a sighting of Jon
in there for us right now
I'm hoping he doesn't turn into a black hole tonight, there are moment were he just doesn't look a pass. Also, no racial pun intended. and right as I'm getting ready to post this he gets an and 1 and a three...
For all the turnovers and missed shots Purdue has had we haven't exactly taken full advantage. Still I will take a double digit lead on the road any day
can we even box out?
Three straight misses up close, damn. We missed our last 7 shots, could be up by 20+ if we took full advantage.
that's at least 4 missed bunnies already. wtf.
Purdue's joy to turn the ball over or our inability to score with the ball when we're within 3 feet of the hoop?
Make your easy shots guys, missing too many good looks.
can we finish please
layups make them
When Horford is in the game, the other team goes on a run. Never fails.
Horford is a pretty good defender...
Is there a lid on it?
way too many close shots, dammit
and we miss 7 shots in a row,decent shots,is it just me or does this happen with regularity?
Did Keady finally ditch the comb-over?
keady finally ran out of the black shoe polish for his hair.
So we finally make a three, then miss everything?
Edit: Another three!
Now we can only make 3s.
But is there a streaming link? My site doesn't have the video for this game.... :-(
Keady ages like milk.
at leaving 3 point shooters wide open. It happens a lot
lets fucking close out ok? shit defense.
Michigan: Thank you for rebounding.
oh and that purdue player just grabed the rim. goaltending but w/e
Burke obviously tries to draw a foul, doesn't get a call. The man can't get anything going to the rim.
change midgame or is it just me?
I'm showing the LCD numbers against a black background with the clock, otherwise the graphic is the same.
Anyone else see the ad for Tom Raper RV's?
Tom Raper has been a respected member of the Columbus community for decades.
Couldn't of called his business Tom's RV's?
STOP LEAVING THREE POINT SHOOTERS WIDE OPEN
Purdue 3 shooters soooooo wide open
garbage close out by THJ
is hurting us now as predicted by.....al of us
Who the hell is this Al you speak of?
What happened to Purdue being terrible at 3's?
It's totally random.
So hey.... double digit leads aren't like dreadlocks. They need to be maintained.
STOP LEAVING THREE POINT SHOOTERS WIDE OPEN
Cool, I love everyone having the games of their careers against us.
FUCKING REBOUND THE FUCKING BALL
J. Johnson plz stahp.
FUCKING CLOSE OUT OR BOX OUT PICK 1 NOT NEITHER.
Do they have to pay royalties for the bastardized version of "Let's Go Blue" that their band plays, or is it just different enough to get away with?
taking no good shots anymore.
I'm working and can't watch
29-28 not us.
Wow. We look really lazy on defense.
The Purdue has like 100 turnovers but because our rebounding and d blow were down.
Watching this is beyond frustrating. We should have been up by 20 in the first 10 minutes, but our lolligagging close out d is beyond awful.
And here I was looking forward to a sleeper.
Sheesh. It's like we wait around for it to happen
For being such an offensive team, sometimes we really such at doing that offense thing
we insist on keeping opposing teams in the game early?
better shot selection.
This play-by-play guy is brutal. He's far more excited when Purdue scores than when we do.
Seriously JB; needed a timeout before that useless possession where LeVert launched a wild shot.
The under-4:00 timeout was coming. I don't know that it's worth burning a TO for one first-half possession.
Get a nice lead and start taking bad shots and/or miss easy ones and leave 3 point shooters wide open
Not defending the three very well, and low hustle. They call them 50/50 balls because you are supposed to get half of them.
Hey, open three pointers.
Sorry guys, when I tuned in we were up 10. I'll stop watching now.
When it doesn't work.
I don't understand how we give up this many wide open shots. It's just pathetic
How is it we never get calls against anyone?
It ain't the officiating!
We play way too timid. When Purdue was sucking, we didn't put them away, so now they're hitting shots and we're getting run off the floor. Purdue is on a 20-7 run with foul shots coming
This team doesn't deserve to share the big ten title.
I don't care about the other teams. Seeing Michigan consistently under perform is the reason why.
why does Coach B not play 2 bigs more often?
Jesus fucking Christ. Does this surprise anyone?
Par for this course
We lose 10 point leads faster than any team in the country. Three straight games now.
this whole losing a lead thing is getting really old
We're aware we can pass in the front court, right?
Just another double digit lead on the road blown, nothing to see here.
What the hell kind of offense are we running the last 5 minutes. Move the ball.
whenever the other team is on a roll, they just score at will
Why do all of our players insist on taking it upon themselves to score and not pass the ball?
Levert is horrible on the offensive side of the ball.
us 33% them 46%
What's cooler than being cool? Michigan.
I hate Big Ten road games. I HATE THEM.
PURDUE PLAYER BREAK DANCING GIF!!!
More than just a three point shooter
Why does this team suck on the road??!!!
I'm tired of every looking and playing like they don't care. We're almost never the team that gets pumped and runs the team off the floor. It's always happening to us, it's not a coincidence
Why would you say "probably"?
STOP MISSING LAYUPS GOOD GOD
I swear we've missed at least 4. Come on!
dunk that shit.
pussy attempt on an easy layup
Making a fucking shot!
Why must our 5s shy away from contact so much, it's embarassing, oh and another 3
why did morgan jump away from the rim
What does it take to motivate this team? It's like trying to run electric current through a brick wall.
How many frickin missed bunnies does Morgan and McGary have?
Bad miss by Morgan... Yikes. Hopefully he will make up for it for you guys.
Morgan breaks school record for career missed lay-ups
At this point I think these announcers have basically jumped in the tank for Purdue. Mute button the rest of the way.
Years from now when my liver is failing I'm going to look back at the years 2007-13.+.? of Michigan sports and blame them.
34 points to Purdue in one half is unacceptable.
It just irks my core how many offensive rebounds they give up. Also, weak defensive rotation.
fuck buzzer beaters
Our bigs miss a ton of open shots. No touch.
Good Lord. Just awful.
How big was the lead at one point? 12? Going into halftime down 34-30. Horrible execution down the stretch.
final 4 minutes of 1st half, I'don't know what to think anymore
Ten or eleven missed lay ups.
Oh for fuck's sake.
We let teams just walk all over us. Everyone plays the game of their life against us BECAUSE YOU DONT PLAY DEFENSE. THIS IS WHY WE CANT HAVE NICE THINGS
34-30 Purdue at halftime.
We miss layups and let a 34% 3pt shooter hit multiple shots against us, par the course for road games this year. Make layups!
God damn shit
This team is infuriating to watch. The awareness on transition defense has been a joke tonight, and why can't we recruit ONE big man who can finish from within two feet of the basket? Talent wise, Purdue should get killed by our guys. This is getting really, really old, and I really don't enjoy watching this team piss away lead after lead. Beilein may be a good coach, but he blows dick at getting his team ready on the road.
Terone Johnson thinks he is DJ Byrd with that last three.
Not watching the second half for fear that I will jinx the team.
We are a 4 seed unless we win the Big Ten tourney.
Seriously, man? There's a whole half left to play and we're down by 4. Get your shit together.
Eh deep down, you know he's right. We've seen this story too many times.
I'm just saying don't automatically write this off as a loss. Purdue is just going on a run. This is basketball. Happens every game, even for teams like Purdue against teams that are as talented as Michigan. A lot can happen in 20 minutes.
This is life on the road in college basketball. If you expect epic demolitions of teams in their own building, you'll be disappointed most of the time. KenPom picked us by six points. I'll take a win by any margin.
No, this is not "life on the road." A road environment makes it somewhat more difficult on the players. It doesn't make them forget how to play fundamental basketball. OSU kicked Indiana's ass last night, and we can't hang onto a lead against Purdue. Stop the stupid excuses.
Looking at a few replays i am now 100 percent convinced stauskas cannot guard at this level. Yet hopefully.
But at least he is a threat to score. Levert is a turnover every time he shoots
The Wiziwig forum often has links to games. Sometimes, they even have VLC links, like today. The link is: http://bigtenmb247.cdnak.bigtenhd.neulion.com/mobile/data/btn2go/btnetwork/iphone_640.m3u8
Using VLC, 'open network' and paste that link in. High quality stream.
wow, thank you, can finally watch without the motion sickness and confusion of the horrible, only available stream.
Miss ALL the layups. Blow ALL the leads. This team sucks in the last 3 minutes of halves. From MSU, Purdue, to NC State.
There is no way we will continue to shoot that badly from the floor. Nor will Purdue continue to shoot 44% from 3. Byrd will get back in the game and they will start jacking up 3s wildly.
Sunday. And our shooting didn't improve the either.
I'm sure we said the same thing about Penn State, yet they shot 50% from behind the 3 point line.
Nik is too much of a liability on D. MSU didn't get these open looks last game...
Is this a trick question?
A month ago yes. I have no idea what has happened since.
OK, those last 5-6 minutes were pretty brutal, but don't get too stressed out right now. Basketball is a game of runs. Trey Burke has four points right now. It's a safe bet he'll have a much better second half.
Earlier in the season I was concerned about our defense and rebounding, but we could score. Not anymore!
after leading 19-7 and also laeving about 10-12 points on missed bunnies, fuck this shit man.
They better get it together or they're screwing themselves from a good seed
Real life bigs. No excuse not to jam it down hard. None.
From the opposing team who can't hit shit all fucking year. Magically they start hitting these shots but the well will run dry and we win out by 15
It's not magical. It's a pattern created by our shitty, shitty defense.
Ok you got me there!! But still they can't keep making these shots right? Fuck maybe
wait until we get an explosive, athletic big man who can catch it down low and throw it down.
Bench Stauskas. Gave up too many open 3's again.
we need Caris' defense much more than we need Nik's 8-10 points. I think Caris more than makes up for that with his own scoring + his better defensive pressure
Some of the other stuff - we have 9 defensive rebounds to their 14, and Purdue has seven turnovers to our two. The big thing here is being 11-34 from the floor. Maybe not surprisingly, the majority of the box score stats are more or less comparable.
Play like you want to win the conference? Maybe make it past the first/second round of the tournament?
What's going in? I checked game cast we up 19-9? Said we got this so WTF?
You're first mistake was saying we got this. Have you been watching this team all year?
Yes I was hoping they learned their lessons. I guess I learned mine.
and instead of stiffling it, we started taking really goofy shots and leaving even more 3 point shooters open. Purdue hit 2 or 3 in a row and then we kept taking more stupid shots and missing layups and all of a sudden we'd blown our 10 point lead
left,we start taking BAD SHOTS and miss the easy ones = 11 points in last 12 minutes of half...we have blown a 15-10 and 12 point lead in out last 3 games.
Is Robinson again?
I don't even know what to point my finger at anymore...
When other teams get on runs because of our miserable, sorry ass, piece of garbage defense, our offense turns into hot potatoe on the perimeter. No one wants to move, no one wants to hustle, no one can focus enough to make a damn layup....
The part that irks me the most is Coach B sitting on the sideline in silence with a confused/ concerned look on his face... I know it's not his style, but PLEASE YELL AT SOMEONE! This team is so soft and really doesn't need you to pat them on the back after blowing a 11 pt lead to end th half down by 4.
THROW A DAMN CHAIR AT THE REFS ER SOMETHING!
Fuck this team is awful on the road. Fucking pathetic that because you're playing in a different arena with some people screaming loudly causes you to go from a top 10 team to one that can't even beat Penn State. This just reinforces the fact that everyone who thought we would blowout Purdue are idiots.
Burke should get going in the second half. He can't be any worse than he was in the first.
that Michigan had a big who could score? It feels like it's been forever. Morgan has always had the weakest hands of any center in the country, so he does goofy shit to avoid any contact when finishing-- like that ridiculous fade-way jumper he took from two fucking feet away from the basket. Mcgary has no touch and should probably try to force a foul call more often. I had hopes that Horford would develop a low-post game, but now I just hope he doesn't totally shit the bed when he comes out on the floor.
Oh, and Levert had one okay game (the whole 4-8 from 2 stat is misleading since he also whiffed 3 3pointers. His eFG was not good). But he's back in full deer in the headlights mode now. Why the hell is he taking guys one-on-one? It's usually bad whenever any player, even a good one, does this. But LeVert's offensive game is limited under the best of circumstances. Argh.
I completely disagree. McGary has the weakest hands in the country.
No lead is safe with this team. At any moment their defense can become complete lackadaisical fluttering about. I can't think of a recent team that was more frustrating to watch, knowing what they're capable of, yet also knowing that don't yet have the heart to put it all together. GAH!
I'm not saying Bielein is the reason for this, but a team takes on the character and personality of their coach. Same as units in the military. They just really seem to lack the "heart" and "toughness" that our football team preaches. These guys are capable of so much more.
We all remember how that second half went for them. There is a whole 20 minutes left in this one, guys. Come on!
Enough of this. You know why thety shot lights out? Because they were wide-fucking-open for almost every one of them, mainly due to Hardaway's horrid transition defense.
We also need to sideline the "everyone has the game of their life against us" argument. It's not because we're cursed, it's probably just because we let teams do that to us with our terrible defense
Dude, he's trying to be optimistic and he brings up a valid point. Chill out a little.
I mean, they only play 20 minute games in college basketball, right?
can BARWIS give the halftime speech please
Where is the toughness, and inside game we saw against michigan state? I swear to god this team is bipolar. They could be up thirty and I still wouldn't be sure they were going to win the way they give up double digit leads. Sick and tired of this. I'm tired of these nail biters against bad teams.
We played MSU at home. We're playing this game on the road. Playing in front of 13,000 people that hate you is hard. Fortunately, this is the last time this season.
Unfortunately to be a great team you have to learn to win on the road. This team just can't seem to do it.
It shouldn't be THAT hard. People yelling at you shouldn't turn you into a shitty player. I'm so tired of this lame excuse.
The guy I want to see step up (besides Burke - he has only four points) is Hardaway. He was dreadful on D and his shot selection on offense wasn't too good. He's one of our most experienced players and needs to be a leader now.
