don't we all
You are a black hole of negativity that no one enjoys.
Eh your wife enjoys it.
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.
