Michigan vs. Wisconsin Basketball Open Thread
KILLER THREE HARDAWAY AGHHHHHH
WOW!!! what a shot!
FUCK YEAH TIMMAY!!!
TIM MOTHER FUCKING HARDAWAY
WHAT THE FUCK.. HAHAH I'M LOVING IT
If he misses that I'm throwing the remote at the TV!!!!!!
HOLY FUCKING HELLLLLL
TIM MOTHER FUCKING HARDAWAY
YOU MAGNIFICENT BASTARD
set up hardaway for even a tougher shot...
Hardaway is a basketball alien
Glad we made the shot but we were lucky as shit there.
WOW! I was about to complain that Micihgan never seems to have a play drawn up inthese situations - ha!
Shot selection but hell yeah! Why not foul Wisconsin! Thank you!
Tim just went up like 3 spots on draft boards with that shot.
That's not a good screen or a good look but whatever. Alright time to use our fouls better than they did.
Did you see Bielfeldt's reaction??? Love it!!!
I don't understand it, but I'll take it
Foul, before the shot.
Hardaway done did it again omfg
WOW! Stone-cold assassin!
Now D for 2.5 secs! Don't foul a 3 pt shooter!!!
No banks please lord! Just fouls belien!
But another terrible possession
Give the foul here.
I love you
Still would love to see a better end of game play then long three. Maybe run the play sooner? I haven't a clue but those plays seem low percentage plays.
"Tat has been a great game!"
I feel like Dakich has to be a time traveler from the 1940s, who can't conceive of this fun, futuristic style of play the Badgers have invented.
Why the fuck no foul before?!
Jesus christ. Halfcourt jumper for OT. I hate my life.
what the fuckkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
WHAT THE FUCK
did that just happen
Oh fuck that. Foul him Caris.
HOLY SHIT.. THAT FUCKING SUCKS

ARE YOU FUCKIN' KIDDIN' ME?!?!?!?!
What the fuck
WHAT THE FUCK? WHY DIDN'T THEY FOUL?!
god damn foul foul foul
Are you fuc%&** kiddin me
no fucking way!

horrible coaching there beilein. remember osu. fuck!!!!
That didnt just happen...wow
What happened to fouling???
Have to be kidding me?!
Wow, I guess we will just beat them in over time then.
Hahaha that's all you can do. Laugh
FOUL GOD DAMMIT
OH. MY. FUCKING. GOD!!!!!
Shoud have fouled...incredible shot. Dumb, dumb, dumb.
So you want to lose in over time Wisconsin?
Fucking kidding me...
2 fouls to give......
did that just happen
Are you f'ing kidding me!?!
LaVert freshman mistake.
Fuckity, fuck, fuck
How many times has this happened to us in the past 3 years?!
FOUL ON THAT PLAY
FOUL FOUL FOUL
Fuck the Kohl Center and everyone in that place
why the hell was lavert on the floor????
Were still fine. We are going to out play them in OT.
wow.. that sucks.. i don't know what to say
Death to half-court shots...
But it was a terrible shot out of a timeout and left way too much time on the clock.
Why aren't we just tackling them? Seriously.
Unreal. Two stupid instances of not fouling in the last ten seconds. Now they have the momentum and will probably win.
He shot that very quickly, not a real opportunity to foul hm without the risk of fouling him while shooting.
my heart is collapsing
That was just damn ridiculous.
shit is cray!
Ok now we settle down and win this in OT.
FOUL. FOUL. FOUL. FOUL. FOUL.
Unreal. Two stupid instances of not fouling in the last ten seconds. Now they have the momentum and will probably win.
Levert should walk home. Idiot.
...is allowing them to take a three.
Fucking foul him, LeVert.
It's Ohio State in the Tourney all over again.
Get off a horrible lucky shot, give up a lucky shot. We HAVE to do something about our end of half situations.
Why in the hell did we not foul there?? Belein needs to do his damn job.
The announcers said he told them to foul. You need to do your damn job as a fan and pay attention.
we foul early there? dammit
why does the half court shot hate us... michigan is always killed by the half court shot
We will be fine as long as we continue to take good shots.
Well, this sucks.
It feels so good to watch Wisconsin players put up desperation threes against us.
Why the fuck was Caris in the game?
God. Fucking. Damn it. Wisconsin somehow just knows how to rip Michigan's heart out on the hardwood. That buzzer beater 2 years ago still kills me.
15-0 michigan run, please.
These are the games that are going to help us win it all in March
We are so boned.
jack up some shit now.
Grab a rebound! I have a bad feeling about this OT
2.4 fucking seconds.
On your fucking feet, quit trying to block every shot.
looking completely lost yet again. I don't understand the hype at all. He looks completely overwhelmed.
Wow. Wouldn't be a game without a Wisconsin half court buzzer beater 3. Fuck.
michigan looks defeated
Y the luckiest fucking shot in the world Jeeeezus
You think Mitch could play tight end?
YOU FRICKIN LOVE THE REFS SO HARD
Let's go... if we just made layups in the last five min we win by five.
Run the offense through THJ. Enough of Burke.
FUCK. I'm sick of this game. I want to get the hell out of Madison with a W. The longer we stay out on the court and leave it up to the refs that will become less likely. I hate Big 10 officiating and I'm sick of Dakich saying how great it is.
Dakich was actually right about something.......
Dakich is right on one thing....GR3 is just a body in this game.
Does Michigan run an offense anymore
Dunk that McGrary!
DUNK IT! We don't we dunk?!?
Another missed layup...
Mitch has to make that.
Damnit, just dunk the ball
Button on Dakich??
Will GRIII be rejoining the team before the end of the Big 10 season?
jam it jam it wtf
and can't dunk that. what a joke.
What the hell.
so they are allowed to just slap around until they get the ball loose and then get the ball back. Terrible
Belien needs to work on developing an actual end of game gameplan for how to run the offense
That never touched Stauskas...
are you fucking kidding me, this is a joke
I hate B1G home cooking so much god damn. I know it's there but god damn.
I know I am looking at this with my Go Blue glasses on but I have clearly seen some serious home cooking in Crap-lumbus, Indiana and today in Wisco in recent weeks, and is it me or is it true that I just don't see the same degree of home cooking in AA in favor of the Wolverines? I mean I could argue that when O-lie-O just came to town it seemed with the officiating was more like the game was in Crap-lumbus. Now I am not saying there is no home court advantage at Crisler but it seems to come from the stands and the energy that provides for the most part, I surely do not see such blatant bullshit from the refs with such consistency in AA - this morning while I was watching this I am saying to myself maybe if Michigan did get these kind of BS calls going there way in AA, I could accept it with "hey part of playing on the road", but because I don't see the same shit happening in AA - it drives me fucking Crazy!!! Like I said I am trying to be unbiased or at least as unbiased as possible but hell I really do not see such blantant BS when teams play in AA. Honestly, I would rather there be NO BS on the road or at home but if there is this Unwritten Home court in the B1G with Home Cooking, could someone remind those MF'ers when they come to Crisler.
What a terrible way to start a Saturday -
Ref's looking right at it...didn't even touch Stauskas
Shoot or give it up
are killing this team.
Come on Stauskas, you gotta be stronger with the ball.
The damn foul!
Stauskas gets fouled when they slap the ball out of his hands and then they call it out of bounds on Michigan. This is some ridiculous bullshit.
Everything that could go against us did besides Hardaways shot
again why the fuck is lavert in the game?
AAAAAAAAnd there's the game...
Why is Levert in the game??????????
beliein cost us this game
and a miracle half court shot did.
nice job buddy. can't check that dude??
I can tell you why it's a tough place to win...they wear stripes.
Cue the Burke fade away 3
Between the no call on McGary - you could hear him get slapped on TV - and calling the ball off of Stauskus's leg, this officiating has really fallen apart here.
officiated fell apart before they game even started.
i fucking hate this
Game Over. So many stupid decisions in overtime. Burke might as well have stayed on the bench after regulation. McGary missing a layup instead of dunking. Opportunities were there, execution was not.
Im shocked that wisconsin still has 3 fouls to give...shocked
Lavert is the stopper
Don't understand how they called that out on Stauskas when the Wisconsin guy hit it out of his hands.
Officials deciding a game? Shocking in the Big Ten...
After the screw up at the end of regulation why in the F is he back in the game to give up another 3. We deserve to lose.
Horrible. Just not good enough down the stretch.
can't wait to have this being talked about all fucking day on ESPN
THAT my friend is why you don't watch ESPN, among many other reasons.
This team has no balls
THJ and Burke do. McGrary does. Staukus and GRIII are ghosts in big games. Still freshman so I hope that changes over time but very disappointed in these 2 thus far in big games. They play great against the junk teams.
Waste clock and don't even take a three?! What the hell?
It ain't the refs!
We are not a good shooting team.
most enraging sports loss for me in a long time
I'm done. See you guys Tuesday
Belein was outcoached in this one, IMO.
just gave this fucking game away. i'm tired of these teaching moments.
McGary spazzed out in overtime. Burke checked out. No one stepped up.
.... Mitch lost us over time
6 points in the last 2 OTs....thats 10 minutes of play
now we have to win Tuesday
This is an example where very poor end of game managment has probably cost a game. I hope this is something that is focused on moving forward, because there is no reason they should leave with a loss at all.
But our guys have no one to blame but themselves.
Goodbye B1G regular season championship. It's one foot in the grave. A loss to Sparty buries it.
Let me get this straight- down 3 and you take it to the rim. Tied and chuck one up from deep. Uh huh. This horseshit game was a team effort.
Cue the MGo commenters to blame the refs!
Not Stauskas and GRob sucking, poor end of game management, rebounding, missed lay ups ,etc
God damn that replay only makes me more upset because Levert was on his hip early enough to give the foul, so fucking stupid.
All comes down to a stupid play by LeVert not fouling Brust as soon as he takes that dribble. I mean, he shouldn't have been in the game in the first place, but still.
Such a frustrating loss that should've been a win.
Was that possesion?
I think I just broke my foot kicking the damn couch in anger
Holy hell! Can't make layups just in fucking believable fuck awful awful awful loss what a fucking joke
Piece of shit.
They won't call a foul on us.
can you be a number 1 seed without winning your conference?
What the fuck is Beliein doing...unreal
his 5 min of play this game was huge. in a negative way. missed all of his shots. and gave up the key 3s.
Michigan is bad at the end of games. Simple as that. Our game goes to shit consistently.
Look at the stats. Plenty of blame to go around on this one.
And there they go rushing the court...
What a painful few minutes to witness...
That's two last
About ref, we both had fouls to giv, if anything it was shitty both sides. Poor execution led to this loss.
Did you watch the game!?!
They should interview the officials.
It would've been hard enough to win without all that bullshit. Why did everything have to happen like that?
We got absolutely hosed in this game.
What a BS loss. We may be a tad overrated.
Worst fucking game ever. I hate Wisconsin. Shoulda had it.
They are storming the court for this? Really?
Good news! We don't have to go to East Lansing #1!
Fuck. Just, fuck.
A fucking joke
Unfuckingbelieveable. Fuck the effort in that game.
way too many easy shots missed under the basket for us...
For once i agree with the commentators. All we had to do is to foul the 3, and we didn't.
I really really really hate to say this, but JB has to take at least 70% of the blame.
What a waste of 2 hours of my life. They need to right the ship quickly
MSU is an absolute must win.
We win that game by 8 if it's fairly officiated. Got in our heads by the end, too.
Beilein blew it. What was he thinking during this one? It seemed like he had no clue what ws going on all game. The substitutions were bad, no offensive flow at the end of regulation or overtime. Not fouling on the inbound. Hopefully he realizes how bad he was today, because it was frustrating to watch.
At least they rushed the court against us. Which is like an open admission that we are better than they are. But honestly what can you say. Just terrible terrible luck. Beat State, get through this stretch 2-2 and we are still in just as good of shape as anyone else.
We didn't deserve to win this game, but neither did Wisconsin really. Ah well, welcome to the big ten. Honestly, I'm glad we have a week off after this gauntlet because we're gonna need it.
Bad things happen when herds of Wisconsin fans stampede down after beating Michigan. Will they ever learn?
Ugh Caris! Why didn't you foul him at end of regulation...ahhhrgghh!
most of those commenting here are pathetic. honestly, you all (those that deserve it) are much more pitiful than the team played tonight.
GREAT NOW WISC OWNS THE TIE BRAKER OVER MICHIGAN
2 free throws! 2!
It's like the refs make a concerted effort to swallow their whistles at Kohl so that they can aid Wisconsin in their quest to set basketball back 70 years.
Look at the shot chart. With all of those misses in close and only ONE was a shooting foul? Not fucking likely. Or the play where McGary picks up the loose ball and gets his legs cut out from behind while being shoved from in front? Not a foul?
Look, we lost this game by missing some gimmes and by not fouling before the game-tying 3, but this football on hardwood shit is ridiculous. It is like watching the NHL during the clutch-and-grab era. Watching the refs allow physical (read: illegal) play negate talent doesn't benefit the game or the fans. I would rather watch top talent making great plays than watch sloppy garbage plays grind out a win.
burned LeVert's redshirt. I love watching him watch Whitey McWhite hit another three over him. And then watching him fucking run and slide out of bounds on the inbound play , letting Wisconsin avoid an 8 second call that was 2 seconds away. He's clearly too talented to wait for him to develop or to bench in crunch time.
How does an entire coaching staff not realize that we need to foul on the inbounds pass at the end of regulation? Did no one open their mouth and say "Hey, maybe we should foul him on the catch"?
Beilien was yelling for a foul but LeVert disagreed. I honestly don't blame the kid, it's the coaches fault for continually insisting that he play in a max pressure situation when he is clearly struggling. I know he has long arms, but that doesn't make him a good defender. He's also a freshman who has never even started a game being asked to finish one.
a huge role in the game, clearly were watching a different game. Officiating kept Wisky in the game, plain and simple. The winning three was scored on possession they should have not of had. Ball was clearly off Wisconson.
Don't care how talented a team is, playing against both the opponent and the officials is a difficult task.
The worst was an obvious goaltend in the first half that led immediately to a fast break for Wisconsin. There's four points.
And we shot 2 free throws and were in the lane the whole game.
We have some ugly streaks that need to get corrected and we just missed a great chance in Madison.
...is the result of poor coaching down the stretch. Coach B blew it by allowing a shot at the end of regulation. 2 fouls to give and then a 1 and 1. Game over; Michigan win. Very disappointing.
It is pretty obvious that there is really no focused game plan to close out games for Michigan. It seems to dissolve into going to one-on-ones, or not designing plays to get someone open. Obviously hitting one of about 10 missed lay-ups would have helped as well, but it would be nice to feel like a time-out actually resulted in a designed play-type substance that focused some effort into getting one of the shooters into a good position to get an open shot or move the ball in something other than a long-range 3 point shot.
Also, how many times this year has it been brought up that you foul with a 3 point lead and less than 5 seconds left before teams, you know, actually implement the strategy?
Gonna be a loooong day at work today. Especially being surrounded by bandwagon sparties.
Yeah, that stupid man-to-man defense. Who comes up with crazy fucking ideas like that?
you sir are absolutely pathetic. Getting beat or tied by incredibly low percentage shots sucks, but is not a reflection on bad coaching. Amaker and Ellerbe were bad coaches...Bielein has us set for a number one sead. Grow some balls and take losing a close game to a B1G foe like a man
Did he graduate and clone himself as Spike Albrecht?
Everyone on our team is terrible! Our coach is terrible! Levert should never even be playing! Burke is so overrated! I can't believe how clueless our coaching is! Our team doesn't even try!
terrible all around. I think some of the posters bashing this team need to get their heads examined. They lost a close game in difficult place to play, while being completely railroaded by the officials.
People need to stop acting the foul before the shot is taken is 100% clear cut. There is always the risk of the player shooting the three as soon as he touches and getting three free throws. Wisky hit a 1 and 200 type shot.
Edit:Unless this was meant to be sarcasm, which I apologize if it is.
About refs, we did not execute, stupid plays, we blew this game. They need to improve before the tournament. Must win in Lansing to have a chance at title.
Yes, we FUCKED UP by not fouling that little turd.
But the winning bucket was scored after Stauskas had won a clear rebound, only to have his arm broken off in front of the ref, who not only didn't call the foul but actually said it went out off of us!!!!!
FUCKING BULLSHIT decision!!!!
Watch the replay. The WIsconsin player got all ball.
Stauskas needed to chin that ball and either call timeout or dribble out of the double team. He didn't.
the official for calling it off him when it clearly wasn't how? That was second time in the game they called a ball off him when it obviously wasn't. The one in the first half was even worse.
For all you idiots trying to blame the coaching staff:
Beilein was calling for the foul at the end of regulation. Dakich even mentioned that Beilein was telling the guys to foul.
A true freshman made a mistake. Life goes on. Beat STAEE.
At state, next....not liking our chances there. Could very easily lose the home games against IU and state also. But this game was a complete cluster fuck. I mean how can you not foul w/ 2.5 sec left?! Have to deny that guy the ball. Championship teams don't miss that many layups either. Beating Ohio is great, but championship teams win games like these. We are not there yet. Just a friggin unnecessary loss. Also Wisconsin has the most ridiculous luck against us I have ever seen. I mean holy hell
Did nobody not see Belien tell these goofs to foul? He told them to foul!! The officials missed some calls on both ends but the game could have been put away but this team lacks toughness and heart. They play NBA style instead of tough hard-nosed do whatever they need to to get a rebound or bucket style ball. I have no doubt they will lose to State because they will play in your face style ball and Michigan does not respond well to getting pushed and smacked in the mouth. If it's a wide open game Michigan does well. If its a half court slow it down type game, Michigan will get beat if a team has some talent. Wisconsin looked more athletic today because they wanted it more.
How about running some plays at the end of games instead of trey Burke iso's? Way too predictable.....anyone see GRIII the last few games? MIA.
