Let's go with Max B and steal 4 minutes.
Michigan - Wisconsin Game Thread
but you have to ready to pull him immediately if he's getting abused.
why? unless morgan and hortford each have 4 fouls, no way.
Extend the possessions, drive to the basket and either make it, get fouled, or both.
I love the intensity. Keep it up.
is proving why he may be the best coach in the country. the subtle changes he's made to attack wisky have been awesome.
UM came to play tonight.
This is beyond wonderful (so far). But I'm too old and have seen too much shenanigans in this freaking building to start feeling anything but nervous yet.
Spread it on!!!
to cover two big guards. Lotsa mismatches out there.
I want to be excited, but teams can score 10 points in a minute. Let's keep it up Michigan.
JB Telling the official what's up. Love it.
Just cause he throws his head back doesn't make it a foul.
Is it me or is JB more animated this year?
NO NO NO NOOOOOO
he gets a bad wrap from some around here for not being vocal enough. but he gets on the officials. he's just not an ass like some other coaches; izzo, ryan. he's no amaker.
Despondent Badger Bros. Love it
I REALLY think you've got to steal some minutes up 15.
Refs: "Oh shit Michigan is running away with this, better start calling fouls".
With Wisconsin in the bonus, it will be free throws that get them into the game.
so many fouls..brace yourselves the homecooking has arrived
Wisconsin is in the bonus already...typical
Fouls are 7-2 this half. Seems legit.
here come the Bo Ryan makeup calls
Bonus for Wisconsin, so we've hot to ratchet down on defense without fouling now.
IS jacking it up.
And here they come...
literally will do nothing but catch and shoot.
That Wisconsin is in the bonus with ten minutes to go
we needed that basket
Go back to your starting 5.
If not now, then very soon.
fresh 35. let's work the clock some more.
just robbed the bank. love it.
Of our possessions should take 25 seconds at least now, unless we get a layup
Or if Levert gets a free run to the basket!
nice call on the layup =)
Nice drive by Levert.
is quicker than anyone i've seen at michigan. crazy fast first step.
but i'm in the hyperbolating mood.
i always thought kelvin grady was pretty damn quick. he would single-handedly break presses. i wish he would have stuck it out in bball for 4 years.
Slow the fuck down Stauskas.
Love to see our bigs in there rebounding. Love it so much.
is jacking up these terrible threes.
they are just missing. they are good looks. that is their game and they are generally really good at it.
The guys were GASSED!
Also, FUCK Dekker for pushing Walton under the basket. The refs blew that call.
Great job again to weather that run, Caris brought his "A" game tonight.
For the love of god eat some clock
Love how WI is allowed to shove with two hands on a rebound or body up on a drive with no call. we practically have to have a bone broken to get a call.
We're starting to tighten up...
We need one more run of energy and emotion.
I'd really try to get a GRIII alley-oop to kickstart us one last time.
Go on a 12-4 run over the next 4-5 minutes and you're sitting pretty.
I hope JB lets them start eating some clock unless we've got easy buckets. Indiana was able to get points in the paint, I think we can too. Also, it may help even out the foul situation.
Very impressed with Morgan and Horford. In good position on D, doing nicely on the boards, setting good picks, and finishing their chances.
They aren't Mitch, but they're solid.
Some Spike down the stretch, please.
But got to play defense.
No turnovers god dammit!
giveth. levert taketh away.
My nerves are already shot
Well here comes the wisconsin run.
Levert giveth and taketh away.
needs to pass it.
Playing stupid lately. Now it sucks
This isn't good. They have the momentum. Eat some fucking clock!
Levert is singlehandily bringing them back in the game
Even worse shot
WTF are we doing?!
here we fucking go
Are we seriously going to blow this game?
LeVert again. Terrible and excellent alternating.
Get Lavert the @#$% out of there.
Why does this kinda stuff always happen against Wisconsin!
Need a bucket badly on this possession
Get Nik back in the game.
Like I said, they started to tighten up, you could see it.
No more urgency or emotion.
They have to relax and get back to fist pumping and chest bumping.
I really find it hard to believe sometimes that there isn't someone on the bench who can contribute more than Caris LaVert.
He has done a lot for us this game, 20 points.
20 pts. but he has committed 4 TOs. he's owning wisky's guards.
Beilein needed a TO there. He waits too long sometimes.
time. that's 3 straight possessions of levert with nothing to show for it. and wisky scores twice.
Missed wide open alley oop pass to Horford by Caris and then an in and out shot by Caris.
No idea why Michigan keeps reverting to hero ball in spurts.
Starting 5 in?
7-0 run over last 4 minuts. 0-3 FG, 2 Turnovers.
Make that scoreless over last 5 minutes. 10-0 run. 0-4 FG.
I have a feeling I'm going to want to punch a wall in a few minutes.
Here we go.
"In the big ten, occaisionally guys touch eachother"
It's been real...
Dekker says: 'Real recognize real'
Dakich: Occasionally guys touch each other. Thats just a basketball play. Interesting analysis.
Gimme some spike
No longer getting into the paint area :(
Lead is cut to 3. Fuck me. Just, fuck.
God dammit I'm so fucking sick of this shit vs Wisconsin!
time to get back to playing offense and not milking clock.
NOW we call timeout???!!!!
Exactly why I thought we needed a double digit lead at half
Not done yet. Just interesting now. Very interesting
Even need to watch. I know exactly what is going to happen. Just a matter of which annoying Wisconsin player will hit 4 threes in the nest three minutes.

I hate this
Levert directly responsible for 8 points cut from the lead.
Beilein called a TO at 6:47...we were rolling....different game ever since.
like i said.....too many years of heartbreak here to feel anything but nervous. We need a bucket here bad.
Come the fuck on. Gotta be kidding me.
Well, I am sure most people knew this was coming. Michigan will lose this game.
I swear if they convert the alley-oop to Horford at the 6:30 mark, this one was in the bank.
Too many guys getting caught up in the moment. Get some leadership on the floor.
No Walton, No LeVert. Not until they settle down.
I've seen this show before. Michigan not getting any stops for the last several minutes of the game.
Well that lead evaporated quickly
When you stop playing the game and start eating the clock with a fing lead. Why take your foot off the freakin gas?
They didn't take their foot off the gas enough! They'd shoot it with 15 seconds left instead of as the shot clock expires. That's not killing clock!
Stauskus doesn't have a clutch bone in his body
ya just knew it
Levert has been good, 20 points this game, but he let Wisconsin back in the game.
Why did we stop playing? This is ridiculous!
They started to tighten up with 10 minutes to go when Wisky was in the Bonus.
You could see it, they weren't "hype" anymore and they were just dribbling the ball around trying to run a play with 15 left on the shot clock.
The offense has been a high ball screen and a shot.
Seriously fuck Wisconsin basketball. And fuck the kohl center
Two hand touch when WI has the ball and damn rugby when we do
he goes from being incredible to terrible, literally within one possession.
Does anyone really think Wisconsin has only fouled us twice this entire half?
we have no post game, and we've been helping out their d with sloppy drives recently.
I can't think of anything else to say but that.
Damn it, Caris, I was starting to like you again.
If you say anything along the lines of "this game is on Levert" kindly see yourself the fuck out of this thread.
I feel bad for either my right fist or my living room wall for what is about to happen in a few minutes I fear.
Our turn for a run
Our turn for a run
I love how - when we got lucky vs Nebraska late - people said we learned from our earlier close games. We've learned nothing. We're one of the worst teams in the last 5 minutes.
Is the problem the last 6 minutes??! They're are choking really bad. No made shots...woosie turnovers. .. Cmon fellas. Be great! Don't be afraid to be great!
although they have been loose with the ball.
Does any team get more bullshit wins?
thank you based Stauskas
Stauskas with a sorely needed bucket.
May take a half hour.
That was fucking huge. Now a stop.
with the mega shot. so pretty. that should go in every time. NEVER MISS STAUSKAS
I feel like Michigan always finds a way to hit a drought within a game.
Do NOT double anyone in the post - stay home on all of their shooters
here's where all of our close games are supposed to help us win this game.
that's how it works, right?
Is your Wisconsin refs.
Walton was the first to the ball and 2 guys jumped on his back and they call jump ball.
every time, in any arena.
Stauskas, please make a three when we need it. Please!
don't flop my bruddaaaa
WTF are you doing?!
I swear to god we're THE worst team at the end of games. THE worst. I've seen it so many fucking times.
Set up a 13 seconds of dribble followed by jump shot play
That is all.
Well, I was hoping to not have a heart attack tonight.
Jesus we need a basket. Please, please, please.
What a bailout foul
Can they negate a foul like that?
hit the rim anyway dummies.
This is weird. Shot clock violation about at same time as foul...
That was before the shot clock!
Is that the best play we have out of a TO?
This will get overturned. Count on it.
I am shitting my pants with rage
Just get a good look.
Christ on a cracker we need points.
I will add it toy repertoire, with your leave
Life to backboards!
FUCK YES STAUSKAS
Okay now protect the lead!
Hero ball finally worked- one for the last twenty times!
Someone said Stauskas wasn't clutch...
Not just a shooter... BUT A HELL OF A SHOOTER!
Air Canada baby!!!
Stauskas just nailed that shot and then said, "I want this. I want this!" Dude is a player.
Beautiful move by Stauskas
BLAME CANADA, WISCONSIN!
I can has turnover?
I can't believe we let Wisc back to one point.
Stauskas steps up!
I was just about to type, "Stauskas needs to make a few more of these three-pointers if he keeps chucking them up like that."
"I run this shit!" -- Nik Stauskas da Gawd
just say Stauskas isn't clutch?
Quick fucking foul.
I am shitting my pants with anxiety and hope
Then go get it Nik! How the FUCK is Morgan guarding Jackson?
An eternity against the weasels.
hahahaha this game is coming down to a potential buzzer beater ending...
get the ball inbounds. and make free throws.
OK, do it.
make free throws...
One and one is making my butthole pucker.
That wasn't a foul, just a straight knock out.
but i will cuz sports suck.
Please make free throws guys
MAKE YOUR FUCKING FREE THROWS FOR ONCE AT THE END OF GAMES PLEASSSEEEE
how many fouls do we have left to give?
Get J-Mo out with 4 and go small to get around the screens.
Nice. Our possession started at 37sec left and it took 13 seconds for them to foul Stauskas, exactly who we wanted to shoot the freethrows.
That makes me feel better
token press please
All you bleeding hears out there that don't want players to tch each other, this Is the big ten ... Men touch men
Please make free throws.
but got lucky on that didn't go in.
Unbelievable that we just gave Decker an upon three
Way to hit the free throws!!
Way to hit the free throws!!
Fucking A.....this might actually happen.
Two more free throws and this one is over.
Omg omg omg omg omg...
what an awesome win!!!! we now in da hunt!!!!
You mad bro?
Ballgame! Way to go, boys!
Stone. Cold. Nik.
What a huge win for M.
We didn't have to make it that easy
Stauskas clutch three and then four free throws.
gets the game ball? Stauskas?
you could play a littttle defense right?
Yeah buddy, 2014!
So about Stauskas not having a "clutch" bone in his body??
Dakich trolls us a lot less now that we are "in the Family".
road Ws already in the BIG. HUGE!!!!
Cue the Muppets!!!!!!!!!!
It's not over until the Germans bomb Pearl Harbor.
How tough is this team.
WTF was that???
more of a flagrant than a foul, but whatever.
How is that not flagrant...
Straight up tackling not flagrant?
This isn't football wisconsin!
How is that not intentional????
I remember when the "predicting the b10" thread was posted and it said Wisco would go 16-2 and I laughed and said it wouldnt happen
Gasser spearing out starting PG. Get off
Can you ell I have been drinking?
I mean, we haven't won yet.
Thats how you twist the dagger!
Bad form on that tackle.
2014, the year of the wolverine. You keep on keeping on 2014
YESSSSSSSS DEATH TO BACKBOARDS
Foul a guy hard with 1.8 seconds left down 5. You are an asshole.
Great win for the team
Ok, now it's over.
But Walton is about as anti-clutch as it gets at the line
In a thread earler this week the question was asked "Do we deserve to be ranked?" I stated: ask me again around 8:15 on Saturday and I'd have a better answer.
Well it's about 8:15 and yes, I do have a better answer.
FUCKING YES WE DESERVE TO BE RANKED!
you ugly and you finally off our back!
Great game!! Go Blue!!!
Boys are growing up before our eyes.
Great win. I said 1-2 would be great this run; honestly, 2-1 seems like a real possibility.
That'll Do it Folks!!
Man. I love you guys. 2014!!!!!
They should walk out with the double birds
ALL OF THE TEQUILA SHOTS!
BIG WIN @ WI!!! SUCK IT, BO RYAN!!!
Well they sure made it scary for a few minutes there, but this is a big win. I didn't think we had it in us without McGary to win the Big 10, but if we can win here then any game is winnable. We just might pull it off this year. 5-0, baby!
FUCK YEAH LET'S GO!
This team feels like it's coming together.
I was worried for a second there.
Fu Bo Ryan fu Wisconsin fu 2013 .. Wheeeeeeee!!
1 point game with a minute to go, and Mr.Stauskas with scores all 9 of the team point. Nothing short of fantastic.
I happily retract my statement about Stauskus not being clutch.
Against the refs and a bunch of thugs. Who wants it? Michigan.
We had not beaten Wiscy in the Kohl center since 1999.
Tonight we're gonna party like it's 1999.
HOLY AMAZBALLS 2014
Can't freakin believe it!!! I know, act like you've been there before but this is the freakin Kohl center!
Those two fouls at the end of the game were WAY over the top.
Fuck them. Go tear an ACL.
Stauskas grew a pair tonight. Huge win.
First win @ Wisconsin since my senior year. I love it. I hate those fuckers
Well hey...might as well ride those good feelings all night, eh?
