What a great game. It seemed everybody on Michigan played well.
Michigan vs. VCU Postgame (snowflakes) Thread
G O B L U E !!!!!
a little girl!
Just one thing - can Adidas get this team some replacement jerseys please???
I'd rather anyone besides Adidas get them some replacement jerseys
Because everyone has shitty concept jerseys and everyone's jerseys tear.
But we're Michigan and we're supposed to be the lead school for Adidas. If we have to wear last year's jerseys, someone should be fired. I mean that. They should be ABSOLUTELY EMBARRASSED if we don't have what we need in the fricking NCAA Tournament.
Posbang me with the lights on.
Great liveblog, better game. Not sure if I got more excited for Mcgary's screens or Mclimans 3-point heave. Probably the heave.
Spoke really impressed me today. Always thought that the was just serviceable...showed me a lot more than that today.
THAT WAS AWESOME
holy shit this is great. +1 to you my friend.
It is with this win that we now go to a place we have not been in nearly 20 years, if I am not mistaken, and this is a good feeling.
Some final numbers:
|FG%||3FG%||FT%||Eff. FG%||Off. Reb. %|
We also racked up 17 assists, and Trey had seven of them . Once again, it was great to see him facilitating the offense, but he also was 6-14 and 2-6 from downtown, so he was contribution to the scoring in a Trey manner as well.
Mitch McGary...wow...10-11, 14 rebounds and 21 points. Awesome performance by Mitch. Also, road grading like a lineman here and there was a nice touch.
Mitch MF McGary, 21 pts, 10-11 FG and 1-1 FT, 14 rbs (4 offensive), 1 asst, 1 steal, 2 TO, only 1 foul.
Mitch McGary 10/11 shooting...only miss was an off balance layup attempt.
So many thoughts right now:
-John Beilein will be teaching the 'how to beat the press' clinic this year, tickets available online
-Mitch McGary picked a damn good time to peak. He's so far and away our best big right now it's not even close
-This team's best will beat anyone in the country. We just need to keep it up now
-That screen where McGary just about killed the VCU guy was incredible
-Perhaps more incredible? Stauskas has a clean path to the basket, but instead of taking it he passes to THJ who does a reverse dunk. I lost my shit when that happened
watching online. I am so happy to see the community getting behind these guys.
starts w/ signing Trey Burke, THJ, GR3, & Mitch McGary.
Somebody needs to go through the old threads from the season and get a list of all the people whining and crying about Beilein not being able to coach, needs to be fired, needs to move on, won't take Michigan far. Then we can ban them from these types of threads.
I second that
a game like this makes me feel forgiving not vindictive. Almost.
This is a fan forum. There was legitimate reason to at least question why we weren't performing later in the season. I don't get the calls for Beilein to be fired, but you can't try to force people to think the same.
If every human was banned from saying something stupid, nobody could post.
Deal w it.
who know they said stupid shit
Not stupid to be disappointed with how they played to close out the Big Ten season. They did not look good then and were a defensive disaster, offense was stand around and wait for Trey to do something, glad you're having an I told you so moment right now, but get off your high horse. Michigan took great advantage of favorable match ups and it was fun to see them play to their potential, but none of that can be used to ret-con their earlier disappointing play. That said anything can happen in the tournament. Go Blue!!!!!
We're what 28-7?
Man, the coaches did a great job prepping the team to beat VCU's press. But hoooo boy, did Timmay and Mitch have a great game today. Tim beating the press early really took the pressure off and created some easy buckets. Mitch could be a huge wild card for us next weekend. He is much more athletic than people think and creates plays for everyone.
And hello again GRIII. Nice job these last two games of making some shots and easy buckets.
Very excited!! Even if we play Kansas, we can play with them. Burke will be key in that game however, and needs to work his game in the lane.
Taste like sugar. Mmmmmmmm.
McGary chose a real good time to have a career game. 21 points, 14 rebounds, and 6 floor burns. What an animal. Michigan is looking scary again.
You're really fucking on!
Awesome. Didn't know this one existed. Would gladly pay money or trade services for someone to make one for this year's bball team!
How can you have been a member here since the first day of the "new" format and not have seen this? I'm serious, it was all over the place during the RR years. Not being rude, just sayin.
This smith Announcer is having trouble saying McGarys name....its not that hard.
Who the HELL is McQuery??? These CBS analysts are tuurribleee
Kick ASSSSSSSS!!!! Dunk by Timmy sickest dunk I've sen in a while team as a whole played outstanding and MITCH!!! What a hustler he's gettn better n better every game!!!
is a beast.
If we could just get Stauskas' shot back...
Heh. That was awesome.
And now to root for the rest of the Big Ten, because I'm tired of hearing the rest of the country make fun of it. Make the Elite Eight the second Big Ten Tournament. But without fucking Wisconsin.
Looking for Sweet 16 Muppets!
just like the civil war...sorry Virginians
In VA here, tastes so sweet. Not Sugar Bowl sweet but close.
Hey Charles how's the mountain west
I have never been so happy to be wrong. I was with the media in thinking we would be knocked out of the tourney early.
You can all point at me and laugh, say "I told you so," whatever you want. I welcome it.
Haha told you so
To be a Michigan fan!! Go Blue!!!
