here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
MMB: Michigan (3) vs NC State (18) Open Thread
I can't believe the B1G dropped 10 in a row before the past few years. I can't wait for the B1G to rebound like this on the football field.
Not sure it's gonna happen unless the ADs start hiring better coaches. This basketball rejuvenation is because Michigan hired Beilein, OSU hired a guy like Matta, Purdue brought in Painter, and Indiana brought in Crean. Add in the established guys such as Izzo and Ryan, and that's why the leaugue is elite. If football wants to match it, then teams like Illinois, Purdue, and Minneosta are going to have to improbe the quality of coach they bring in (Or we could just dilute with Marylnd/Rutgers BIG TENNNNN)
Hell tubby smith deserves to be on your list too.
Trey Burke is gonna show up tonight and create opportunities for everyone else.. big scoring night for GRIII, Hardaway, and Morgan/Mcgary
A stream will be available here:
It is also on ESPN for those who have access to it.
I'm stuck in grad school class tonight from 630-930 central time so I'll miss the whole game without the stream. Appreciate the link!
I hope we can run NCST ragged, they don't seem to have a lot of depth to their rotation compared to ours, so if we play a little bit uptempo we should be able to run them off the floor.
I'm predicting a 17 point win for us. 78-61.
Clean the glass!
Let's Go Blue!
Make no mistake, NC State is a very good team. They shot poorly against a damn good Oklahoma State team and putzed around against UNC-Asheville, but this team is gonna bring it.
Burke, Hardaway, and GRIII need to be physical and get the offense going early by attacking the basket and setting the tone physically.
LET'S GO BLUE!
Why isn't Crisler sold out? I see a lot of empty seats
but I expected Crisler to be a bit more full for a #3-#18 matchup
The video they used before the game started wasn't live. The PA announcer was announcing the lineups, but the students were dancing and the lights were still on.
Looks like only the students decided to show up on time.
BOO THAT PASS!
Sloppy first couple possessions.
Get Leslie in foul trouble, there we go!
Leslie has go go gadget arms!

Cant wait to see the 2013 banners go up next year!
Why is Vogrich a starter again?
It was said that his defense is better than Stauskas.
Who is saying these things?
Are you trying to say Stauskus is a better defender than Vogrich? I think we have a better team with Stauskus on the floor but I think Stauskus has a ways to go on the defensive end.
Very sloppy passing early on.
Gotta work harder to find the offense
is non-existant. feed a big man, pleeezz
have a seat
Even though he is a senior, he needs to be sitting to start the game.
Too much standing around on offensive possessions. Michigan is too athletic for that.
Michigan is looking awful so far.
Dakich with the answer to why the expansion happened actually. Solid women's basketball programs. Delaney you genius
But I'm impressed by the knowledge. Those are two good hoops programs (Rutgers and Maryland).
What a play by Stauskas
Wow Canadian Bacon with the finish
I think we've found a nickname.
lite it up
in the student section?
Our boy Stauskas is from Ontario! I'm assuming it's for him!
Yep, my flag. Good thing Stauskas gave me a lot of reason to wave it around.
Looking a little rough right now BUT its still early. The difference with this team is that a "slow" start will not doom them like past teams.
Molson Ice! Taking it to the hole.
Like the nickname. Looked like he had ice flowing through his veins in MSG.
Looks like some football players made it to the game
Before the season I thought Stauskas was just a shooter. That kid has a quick step to the rack and can finish when he gets there.
Am I seeing things?
I guess it wasn't. The announcers said it was a 3.
needs to be the stsrter, not Vogrich
lookin' good early
THjr on fire!
