But if not, if we keep hitting shots, they're going to get tired running in their zone at our shooters who get the ball from our passes, and wear out in the last 5-10 minutes.
Michigan vs. Syracuse NCAA Tournament Game 5 Open Thread
We need strong defense in second half. No points in the paint. Make them hit jump shots.
make them miss jump shots
I think you have to give them credit. Michigan has hit some great deep shots. Would love to see the ball get into McGary more so he can find the open man. If blue can get it in there consistently it's over
It's for moments like this, when "winning the right way" has meaning, that makes puting up with the shananigens at OSU, ALA, Yes That Miami, etc. more bearable.
Regardless of the outcome tonight, I'm proud to be a Michigan fan and a Michigan Man.
Posted earlier... Our fans are so loud in ATL! Great work people!!!
I'm more nervous with a lead than trailing.
"Not our night" vs. "Don't blow this."
Totally warranted feelings
They're going to make one run. If we hold through we win as they will be gassed.
Could half-time last any longer????? Why yes, I am impatient.
I tried to do anything to make that time seem shorter
We only have 2 turnovers.
Cool behind the scenes footage with Beilein and the coaches
They are giving away the game plan!
Slow second half starts...
Second half underway. God i wish my heartbeat was 43bmp right now... More like 190bmp.
Not a good start to the half.
well its not exactly how I hope they would start the second half
Fuck you Nantz.
Bring on the bench guys!!!
Fair is fair...
Exept have we forced him right at all yet!!?? Hasn't proven he can go to that side. Always goes back to the left cuz we have let him.
THJ making 3s!
not smart Mitch
Tips aren't going McGary's way this half.
starting out cold again
We just need to get back in the flow. I expect us to pick it up shortly.
Have to slow it down, getting sloppy
Nerves have only gone up. And I'm not drinking. This will be a rough half for my system.
THJ must hit open looks.
May need to go big on the inside on D for a stretch.
Need a Nik sighting.
Would like to see us make Fair prove he can finish going to the right/with the right. Just letting him fake and step as he pleases
rebounds like the 1st half.
Bring in Spike! Bring in Levert! Bring in McGarity!
Michigan, do it for Lucy Liu and a Harmon!
what a pass by McGary!!!!
Dunk you very much!
McGary is ballin!
What a dunk by McGary!!!
TIME OUT SYRACUSE!!!
high per centage shots.
That only increased the heartbeat!! And damn, GR3 would have brought the house down! Keep it up boys
Is Syracuse ready for the laying?
There's your paint scoring.
Come on now defense!!!!
Holy Mitch. that was a sweet 10 seconds
What are we supposed to do with all these dunks?
Okay, they got our attention, now we got theirs back! Time to stretch this lead to 20!!
Go clock go!
You don't want to face Mitch next year.
they have to keep moving fast
We heated back up and matched their run. Now let's break this open.
Wow, GRIII would have blown the roof off that damn place had he made that shot.
It's like this game is being played at the Crisler Center
maybe it's biase but I'm inclined to think that was a jump ball
Ball don't lie!
Ball don't lie!
Ball don't lie
But playing like he's 30.
D the fuck up guys. Close it out
We need to ratchet that defense down...
Horford/Morgan gotta step up from the bench.
Damn Mitch you can't foul like that
We are getting sloppy.
Mitch goes to the bench...
Lets go BLUE!!!
Ok, this is not going well.
I think we need some stops here.
We needed this under 12 timeout badly!
We need more of this.
McGary to point guard, Trey is the worst ever!
Offensive. Possessions. Needed.
We need to show some to, without fouling though
Momentum seems to be swinging. they need a big shot to put a stop to it
up the defensive intensity.
Game off runs. Now we need to have ours.
Come on Trey, let's get some points!
That was their run. Now it's our turn to make a run.
We need the zebras to wake the fuck up and call those muggings in the paint.
Don't come back and haunt us.
Needs to defend under control.
chance with poor shooting and soft rebounding.
12 min to show how good we are.
I keep forgetting...this is for the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
Don't go cold now Hardaway.
This isn't good.
Syracuse is back in the game
I hate the possesion arrow in college BB. Jump it. screwed witchita in the early game.
Hold the ball guys!!!!
Mitch needs to settle down
Syr can do whatever the fuck they want to us in the paint.
Is it just me or is Syracuse getting away with a lot of reaching@!?
It's not just you.
need. to. rebound.
Beilein's afraid this is slipping away. He's trying to win the game now. Or at least not lose it.
make a difference. He's been too quiet for POY.
CALL A GODDAMN FOUL!@!!!!111!!!~!~
Catch the damn ball
What happened to our momentum?!?
Morgan is such a basket case
Game slipping away
HARDAWAY FOR THREE!!!
We're in trouble. Our defense sucks.
Get the rebound and hit the backboard?
Can we get a break?
Syracuse just making it look easy right now.
Wake up fellas before this slips away!
They need to get their shit together fast. They have lost all their swagger and are playing scared.
If we just have 4 minutes where we play both D and O we will have this. C'mon guys
We need a basket this possession
Carter-Williams seems to get away with a ton of contact.
needs to D the fuck up on Fair.
Dafuq is this kind of attitude?
Seriously? No fucking way. We are up 3 on a team we dominated the first half. Ye of little faith kindly stfu
They are working their butts off.
why not put Morgan on the wing and Nik or Tim down low, who can shoot from there.
Please no. And just no to Morgan
and Nik and Tim are to small to be down low; we need to go back to Mitch distributing from the free throw line, that worked pretty good for us. And some shots to go in, that always helps.
they need to buckle down and fight, FIGHT, FIGHT!! This is for the opportunity to play for the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP, what did they expect from Syracuse?
does whatever the hell he wants to.
Face mask there on McGary
Rather take a power play for a 5 minute major
you think that was a foul, about time
Carol! Get your shit together Carol!
12 pts in 13 mins of the second half is not gonna get it done boys...
Just begging to be alley ooped on.
So the facial was NOT the foul?
Lets not start to play like the team that lost to Penn St.
Where I've seen shit they call flagrant 1 with less head contact.
Some clown at the game is holding up a Michigan timeouts sign and counting them down
Just holding that sign up
I would say he got raped
So a face mask is not contact to the head?!
Grabbing a player in the face to stop t hem from scoring is just a normal foul I guess.
Southerland having a terrible game, him and MCW.
Levert would not be our creator.
Burke is off. Put in Spike
McCray is getting beat up
offense as a whole has completely gone cold
MAKE FREE THROWS GOD DAMMIT
I guess it's open season on McGary's face.
there smacking the heck out of Mitch
I thought hits above the shoulders were automatically reviewed for technicals!? This is dirty. Two in a row!
Of more points than minutes left.
Burke...it's about time to but the team on your fuckin back doe
Of course no body foul on Burke there.
Everyone but Burke is afraid to shoot.
They should put in all the smallest players. Syracuse is too big to notice them
I kind of think they're being touchy on one side of the floor and on the other they're letting Syracuse hack them
Wow, that was quite a rebound for the put back, good job Glenn!
So levert had more contact than Williams? Seriously ref?
MITCH MF MCGARY!!!
Sweet turn & shoot
McGary is making the plays for this team right now.
I know, suddenly Mitch is "The Man"
GET A STOP!!!
Too much time.....
boys. Its right there.
ALL CAPS LETS FUCKING FINISH THIS CUZ I AM WEARING OUT THE FRONT ON MY CHAIR CUSHION WITH MY ASS
That's a play that Morgan or Horford can't make
KU nut punched Mitch an he went off on them. I see him repeating it against SU
Ok, one play and a tv TO is BS.
well I'll take that play too
Now make em pay!
Under 4 timeout Michigan up by 8...Syracuse beginning to feel some pressure as they through a pass out of bounds.
Uh, WAT? Is this something to do with cojones?
Shit, I am so nervous.
You're not alone, brother.
I need like a paper bag to breathe into.
play hard blue...maize
YOU GO MITCH!!!
Mitch goin ape... Love it
Wasted timeout. We have to be better out of inbound plays with pressure
MITCH ANGRY!! YOU NO LIKE MITCH WHEN HE ANGRY!!
noticed how all our in-bound plays are terrible?
Put the team on your back doe
Nails... Chewed? No ate. Fiance and dog? Scowel check. Heart? Shiat
this can't be good for my heart
is on our side...
All the same, we're going to need another 10 points or so.
Refs whistles in ass
I think we've scored a whopping 17 points in the 2nd half.
Refs have decided to not call fouls anymore.
How is that not a foul?
Shit...that might be a game chaner
I'm guessing they're not going to call a foul on Syracuse
Timmmay!!! What happened there?
F U REFS!
Bring in Spike for ball handling!!!
What the hell
HERE COMES SPIKE!!!!!!!!!!!
Timmy! What are you fucking thinking!!
Last two plays on O have hurt us bad
SPIKE WITH THE REBOUND!!!!!!
When they let the hammer go on the other end?
ARGH STOP TURNING THE BALL OVER!
Don't shit the bed now
What on earth, they gave that to syracuse?
Come ON!!! We can't let up now!
went to sleep.
Jesus - we're imploding here. Fuck this shit!!!!
We are in position to sparty no this fucking game away.
Aaaaand we're out of time outs.
Jesus, we just saw this a few hours ago.
We need a timeout. But we only have 1. Ugh.
And there it goes.
How the fuck is that not a fucking foul you piece of shit refs
I cannot concur with you more.
And now we have no timeouts. Fuck
Thanks Tim. Enjoy the pros..
I take it back. Sorry Tim. Emotions gotthe best of me.
Curious how calm John Beliein is during all of this (particularly Syracuse players mugging Michigan over the last 5 mins.)
Pissing down their shorts.
Queue Fabulous, BREATH!!!!!!
QUIT BITCHING AND PLAY
Pants are getting pooped in now
I do not want to see another Indiana game here. Lord almighty hang on.
deliver. POY at the biggest moment.
are holding Burke on every in-bound play and putting a lot of contact on him. Just call it both ways fuckers or don't call it at all.
Go win the game.
Don't lose faith. We can do this. We will do this.
Michael "Lord and Taylor" Carter Williams?
We are shitting our collective pants.
Boeheim and Williams can suck a big fat one. There's a ton of contact thy hasn't called
bad foul, Trisch good for us! Come on Tim, make them...
MAKE PLAYS. DON'T PUCKER! MAKE. PLAYS.
Mug a dude...no call
tap Haraway = foul
Make our free throws. All of them.
YES MAKE FREE THROWS PLZ!
Big FTs from THJ.
"They needed another time out 20 years ago"
Please FU commentators
Big offensive foul! YES!
Bye bye bitch!
Back turned to the referee. Nice piece of work there from Hardaway.
Zebras give us some calls. Evening out slightly.
Finally, some calls!
great job Tim
I saw his act against Temple this year also.
Sit down kid
That guy is a little bitch.
4 on McGary now.
Dang announcer jinxed Spike!
Triche screamed they call a foul.
MAKE. FREE. THROWS!
That was another mistake by Syracuse, need to make them pay Trey!
our FTs and we win.
When it matters.
So happy to see FTs made!
But damn why fouls! Geez!
Lets just hit our free throws boys
Are you kidding me?
C'mon, Trey, you didn't need to give those points back like that.
Such bitch calls my God.
:50.2 might as well be 3 days.
Mitch with two right fucking here
It's gonna go into overtime
PLEASE MAKE THIS, MITCH!
That was a big miss by Triche...Mitch, please make the last free throw...these last minutes have lasted an eternity...with an eternity to go...
