How the hell did that ball not go off a UW player?
Michigan vs. Wisconsin Basketball Open Thread
Is CJ Lee on the staff now?
He has a job with the program of some kind, I'm not sure if its the team or the radio broadcast because when Merritt was gone for a few games last year Lee filled in for him.
that OOB call was a big joke
Umm just lay down and trip guys on defense?
Announcers didn't even mention that was clearly off Wisconsin
In fact, they spent the next 10 seconds talking about what a great ref crew it was...
Ugh i know...I found that hard to believe. I think the officiating has been horrendous in this game...
Giving them way too many open 3 attempts. Gotta recover quicker
That's two really nice baseline plays from Beilein this game. Props to coach and to GR360 for recognizing the overplay.
again defending the undefendable officiating crew...
Worst call I've seen all season on that Stauskas drive. I played that over and over. Can't stand this "best officiating crew in the country" bs
I don't have dvr. Stauskas got pushed right?
B1G officiating hinders the conference when it comes to tourney time when they call ticky-tack fouls. When B1G go up against the ACC/Big Easts of the world, they probably rumble into the lane knowing they'll get a call but get decked and cough up the ball.
Love how Burke creates offense when the game is tense.
This will prove huge during the tournament during a close game.
Stauskas dribbled the ball directly off the Wisconsin player on the ground, and it's not our ball? What's going on here? Have we shot a free throw yet?
that this is an excellent officiating crew. your eyes have clearly deceived you
We have not and we're taking like 75% of our shots inside the arc so it's not because we're not being aggressive and just settling for threes.
Coincidentally, that must have been a talking point from the coaches this week. Concern that we were settling.
Dan Dakich sucks, terribly. Can't say it enough.
Dude hates Michigan
Any chance we will to get to the line? That trip was impossible to miss.
These guys are the best officiating crew in the country the same way that Ohio State is the poster child for compliance
Sucky NFL official and NCAA official.
Fuck these refs, and fuck Dakich.
and rebounding worries me going forward.
"best officiating crew" they said...
Have you guys heard this is the best officiating crew in the country?
Scored over grIII
Dan Dakich is fucked up.
Can we get Ed Hochuli up in this bitch?
more wide open 3 attempts
Holy shiet. Did Stauskas teach McGary how to shoot?
Stop it Mcgary! (No keep doing it in all seriousness)
McGary is the epitome of getting better every game.
I wonder why it is that teams get so many wide open three looks against Michigan.
Gonna hurt come tourney time. I have faith, alot actually. Gonna hurt to watch alot of those games.
Are slow and bad, easy.
double teaming! Its killing us...
Smooth on offense right now. Wisconsin is hanging on by a thread and won't be able to keep up.
about how good mcgary looks to project to with a mid-range game and getting into shape
Perimeter defense needs to tighten up!
He's not just a shooter
Interesting tidbit: Trey Burke currently has 7 rebounds.
we're playing our style and not theirs, already in the mid 40's with a long way to go
Wisconsin only has 14,more points left in them. Just keep scoring and we will be fine.
IF you are without power and you are burning your phone charge to watch ESPN3, you are a moron.
Nice play out of the timeout - Stauskas just missed.
Important minutes for Horford here.
the second tip ball that falls perfectly for Wiscy
that burke is taking from that line there?
He'd probably get more if he settled for 3s less...
Michigan gets to shoot some free throws.
I would spend the entire next practice learning the fundamentals of boxing out. This team does not know how.
"trey burke swallows" only those wisky phaggots would chant that
Trey Burke swallows? That's the best they have?
WAY too many e-z lay ups given up last three games.
All we need to do is get a 3 possession lead. That should be insurmountable for Wisconsin.
charge call, come on refs
Refs must be contacted by B1G officials before every game at the Kohl Center to not call fouls against the home team. Such bullshit.
first to 60 wins
...close to being set there.
What ever happen to superstar calls man! Hardaway to the hoop should be an automatic trip to line not a charge.
These refs won't let Michigan pull away.
After replay, that is a good charge call.
about that? It looked like the Wisky player was inside of the half circle, where you are not allowed to take a charge.
That's it. I'm muting the tv.
What the fuck did dakich just say!
Are just background noise, I wonder why our fan base gets so worked up over them.
Come on. Every 50-50 call goes to the Badgers. This is a joke.
Of course against us. Hahah
Not sure about the quick pull up three.
Gotta get some separation here.
I can't bear these refs every tick tac on Michigan and letting wiscy play.
jeezus. again the wisconsin bigs getting away with murder down low and touch fouls aginst us
All of the banging going on under the basket and that's the call they make?
Fucking lucky shot again
O my god. I can't tell which conversation is worse. The ones involving S-curves or the one involving the difference betwen male and female work ehtic.
...do we give up an uncontested 3 as the shot clock expires?
I hate that ginger dude.
He's so funny and cool with his red Afro. What a dork.
I hate all soul-less people.
Fuck Wisconsin basketball
Don't know if I like LeVert in the game right now.
Ya if he's not hitting open shots then he probably shouldn't be on the floor.
This is just stupid...
and rebounding. We have none of it.
wisco seems more intense. just look at GRIII's facial expression
When Michigan doesn't have numbers.
Not helpful now, and could be death against Sparty
Badgers have been insanely lucky. Two baskets off deflections and that heave at the shot clock.
We need to make an MGoSacrifice so that Jordan Morgan's ankle is magically healed. Or give him a senzu bean.
Those damn gingers.....
Good timeout by Coach. After that Burke bucket the sneaky timeout takes all the energy back out of that arena.
Let's get two stops and two buckets and push this thing out of reach.
No doubt in my mind when brusawitcz let that go it was in.
Both in this game and the Ohio game... what is with our inability to score when we're in position to build on a lead?
Yeah, I don't think that was a charge...but I'll take it.
that was a makeup call spike was moving
That was a questionable foul charge. These refs are terrible. Thank Zeus we finally got one though.
Thanks for giving us a call ref.
wasn't that a 3. 50-47?
No, behind the HS arc but inside the college arc.
Wow, McGary, that was a killer drawn foul. Strong, strong work.
we got a call!!!
Defense is turning it up!
A clear call for Michigan. I am SHOCKED
And totally a charge.
That is all
LOL, suck it Wisconsin. You've been getting bullshit calls all day.
Bo is an angry man
HAHA Fuck the whiny ass Badgers!
Ans he doesn't want us to get it? Really? Another one! Miracles! Who can post Rapture Guy?
of course he thinks its on the line. I dont think it is, and i certainly dont think you can say it definitively like he does
Says on line even when you can see he isn't
Its hard to figure out what is worse - the officiating or the announcing.
To wipe the Badger jizzum from his chin.
Shut up u idiot. Ur a terrible commentator
Does anyone else feel like we've been playing better when Spike is in the game today? I think he and Burke should be out there together for a bit.
I like how dakich goes his heel is on the line should be a block, when you could clearly not even tell from that angle.
If you guys don't mind hearing the game a good 10 seconds before it happens, use the live audio feed from mgoblue.com
I'll live with the delay if it means I don't have to listen to Dakich.
Mr. TV Color Guy.
It was close, sure, but far from the worst call the refs have made today.
McGary's whole body is outside of that cylinder but because a speck of his "left heel" is on the white line, it is a blocking foul?
Wiscy complaining about calls and we've shot 2 FTs all game.
No matter what the camera shows, foot on the line doesn't make it a block. It makes it not a charge.
Did a Michigan alum sleep with Kasich's wife or something?
I want to kick Dakich in the throat!
Dakich sure does hate us.
Now he's starting to piss me off. McGary heel one cm on the line- 'oh that's a block'
I mean, that is the rule.
I don't think the replay was definitive either way though.
Dan Dakick is embarrassing himself and his family and friends. Same with the refs.
Why doesn't Michigan ever get Tessitore and Lampham? Those guys are good.
McGary needs to be starting until Morgan comes back.
McGary is playing really well today!
wtf Evans just runs into McGary..no foul?
and this game is over.
Is the best thing that could have happened to mcgary. His game has come so far so fast
Edit: Eff Dekker.
I love how McGary knows when to dunk and when lay it off the glass. Wish he could teach the other bigs
can TH maybe take an additional step back when hes taking those long jumpers? That's the 3rd one today that was inches from a 3
This has been a "great, fun basketball game?"
The fuck have you been watching? Wisconsin is an embarrassment to the game of basketball.
It's like Bo Ryan and the rest of the Wisconsin illuminati sat around and said, "Gentlemen, how can we put the worst possible product on the floor, while winning the most amount of games?" and then they found a way to do it.
i hate it when other teams make 3 pointers
Dodged a bullet, whew!
Come on now Wisconsin. Behind the back passes? Bounce passes are pushing it for Bo Ryan.
How the fuck do you leave Dekker wide open again!? Good thing he missed it.
...has hit the freshman wall.
Can't afford possessions like that.
Exactly. We need to learn to run set plays when we need critical baskets.
stop trying to feed the bigs, they arent expecting it and and cant field the ball cleanly. you are too smart and good for them burke
We seem to be trying our hardest to give this one away.
Now that time, I wanted Trey to take it...
Trey has to take that shot. Maybe if that pass is caught cleanly you can get a shot off, but too much has to go right to get it off.
Wow, interesting timeout there.
Beilein didn't want to risk it and burned a timeout to get McGary back in the game.
EDIT: Hmm... even more intersting that he leaves Beilfeldt in there.
Biefelt - ahhh. He's played pretty well but hes not a good finisher.
Michigan needs to go on a run and just bury this team...now's the time.
Bielfeldt you have to know you have to get rid of that asap, no time to double pump
Seriously. Small guys vs tall guys. Bad move. We're killing them with 20-ft jumpers, but losing it when going inside.
All we gotta do is commit to defense to win.
Robinson is having a tough game
damn you are almost useless anymore
Just forfeited an easy two points.
Something has to be wrong with GR3. Not playing worth a damn for the past few weeks.
GR3 needs to be more active
to put this team away.
why can't you be 2 inches taller? solid fundamental game otherwise.
Jesus christ, that was some Amaker ball.
What the fuck was that, Trey!?
What a garbage posession
Jesus, another terrible possession and then Burke couldn't hit the easy layup in transition. This team is killing me right now.
That didn't look like an easy layup to me. He had to go up and under the defender and rim.
Jesus bad offense, what is happening?
make a play would ya?
We are fucking awful.
I thought we were supposed to have a good offense??? This is pathetic.
Playing not to lose.
terrible terrible terrible aghhhhh I'm pulling my hair out
Trey hits those bunnies then this one would be over.
We've had ample opportunities to end this game and we keep blowing it. Infuriating.
Hardaway was wide open for a 3 and Burke does his iso bullshit and takes a 25 footer.
...two missed bunnies and a jack-up.
In a score? Jeebus
I'm tired of Burke shooting stepback 3's at the shot clock. I mean it was cool that one time, but it hasn't really worked any other times.
Awful PG play for last 3 min from the best player in D1.
I just want to get out of this game. Nothing is falling.
Lost count of missed layups by Burke.
Two clock management flubs in the final minutes of a close game it not waht you want to see by your point guard...
This is frustrting but we were favored by 2 per Kenpom and are currently up one. Stop overreacting.
We are currently defying KenPom??!
We are playing their game right now.
That's gotta be 5 posessesions in a row without a point
...some more rest down the stretch of this season.
After the Staeeee game, i want lots of minutes for Lavert, Beifledt and Albrecht
Sheesh about time.
Awesome D from McCary. He is going to be a beast next year.
Where would we be without Mitch McGary?
Oh my god, we are setting ourselves up here for Wisconsin to do something stupid here and steal this game.
Uhh...I hate Wisconsin basketball.
How many else didn't think that shot was going in by Burke?
Those shots haven't been going in the past five minutes.
...guard the 3-pt. line.
Look for a quick FG attempt by Wiscy here so they can go 2-for-1
lol @ punching himself in the head
Announcers describing the finer intricacies of moving
Version of Mitch McGary
Dakich "punch yourself in the head" gif. now.
I want to punch YOU in the head, Dakich.
Sheesh. Let's see less of the stand around and watch Trey dribble and MOAR of the get in the lane and score
That was a charge.
What bullshit is that?!
Umm how is that a block foul?
That is all
goddamn it. stay in front of him.
You mean when he was being knocked to the floor?!
BS call there.
Did that just happen?
Eh, Burke didn't look TOTALLY set there
are you shi---ng me?
I'd like to see that again. I think Burke was set. For as much as the anouncer analyzed the last close charge call...
What a move
He was in that spot a full second.
Can't put these guys away!
Someone better be able to rebound if they miss.
hows is that a foul? i hate college basketball officiating, this crew especially.
Nah, he ever so slightly hopped again before taking contact....wasnt a charge IMO
Well if he makes this we got last possession...again. If he misses and we get the rebound we get FTs. Still ok with being in this situation on the road.
if you let him dunk, still up 1....
Belein better draw up a real fucking play when we get the ball back here. Another Trey iso and I'm going to flip out.
We get 33 seconds of Burke hero ball?
Definitely a block. Whatever, worst case scenario we go to overtime.
Let's just not jack up a three without trying to get a better shot, KTHXBAI.
Looked like Trey may have picked up or slid his left foot there...gotta be statuesque to get the call with these refs
gotta just let them dunk and take the 1 point lead and have them foul
Feet not planted and leaning back. It was a block.
how many seconds left?
On replay, Burke slid in after he was in the air.
I have heard of basketball on grass, which is pretty fun to watch. Football on hardwood, however, is quite painful to watch.
March Madness. Must play smart basketball the last 6 min of a game or we're toast in the tourney.
Bad allowing the big man to penatrate and then foul him.
just grab the rebound if they miss the FT plz
We make it seem very difficult to close out games.
We have the last possession. Run the clock down and break their hearts with a late tip in from Mitch.
We are do some Fts. if they hit this drive the lane and make they make a call.
Cant count on getting that call on the road....only shot 2 Fts all game so the calls arent coming. Plus you possibly give them time for the last shot.
It's OK. If we play our cards right, worst case scenario is they make this free throw and we go into over time. We've got the game in our hands now.
Also we are going to get the ball in a tie game with 30 seconds left. Seems like a good time to get a beer or something before overtime. I can watch us dribble for 25 seconds and take a low-percentage shot on youtube or something.
Can't wait for MSU game to be over...
michigan shooting 41%, 26% from 3 and have only taken 2 FTs on the road....I think I'll take being tied with the ball with 32 seconds left
It's a good call. Burke's got to let him go. Two points doesn't give up the lead.
Getting there, bad d by Mitch. Least it should allow us to take the last shot, albeit a 3 pointer instead of going to hoop. Maybe trey will finally hit a fadeaway 3.
Shitty sloppy play kept Wisconsin in this.
Kthx. And let's not settle for a step-back fade-away 3
How the heck is that a foul on Burke?
Nice home court reffing there, boys.
Burke step back 3 at the buzzer.
Was just about to say his exact thing. It's almost a certainty
With a 75% chance he misses.
BORK! BORK! BORK!
Anyone notice how excited the ref was to make that call?
you have to sell the bad calls
Let's get ready for an iso 3 and
no passes 1 pass here
incoming trey iso stepback 3
No fade away Trey!
So who's calling Burke Iso...
a fadeaway threepointer by burke at the buzzer...
What play we won't be calling here
well 30 seconds of dribble
Either win the game here or go to overtime. No way can they let Wisconsin get another chance.
Heroball time...everyone hold your breath
Only 3 team fouls. Great.
I'm gonna break my tv if we settle for a fade away three...
...I may burn my house down. No, the neighborhood.
Watch for the Stepback 3 pointer
Well, here comes a Burke step back 3 at the buzzer...
We better not lose this damn game...
Make sure to leave them no time, this might be the case where Trey ISP is the best call, it all but eliminates a last second shot from Wisky.
Damn iPhone Iso*
Step back 30 footer by Burke coming up.
is that with 30 seconds left, Wisky has 3 fouls to give. Home cookin', maybe?
For a Trey!!!
It has to avg out right?
Please take it to the basket
is making me upset before it even happens
