Now, that's more like it!
Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.
We could have at least taken them out to dinner first.
Sorry, we ate them all. And they were DE-LISH-ISS
Don't be crazy.
Happy Birthday Coach Beilein!!!!
Onward to Gauntlet Numero Dos!!
A Big 10 win is always a reason to celebrate. Nice to see our guys let the home crowd relax tonight.
Sometimes when you're on?
You're really fucking on.
Great birthday present to Coach B!
bounced back nicely, got GRIII on track, etc. This team has five guys who can put up 20+ on a given night. Poor Morford couldn't even get touches b/c all of the shots were going in before they even got to that part of the floor. Nice present for Coach B.
Calming game. Would watch again.
Set the DVR.
Do frogs have access to a DVR?
Yep, back at the pad.
Is your wife's name Lilly?
The game was ribbiting
... to Rib-bit Up.
Maybe you could be there and eat some frozen yogurt, which I call Frog-urt....
Ok, I'll just go back into my corner with my can of beans.
That would be fly
Thank you. I somehow forgot about the game until just now. Sounds like I missed a good one.
Damn, when Irvin is playing well this team is unbeatable.
I never thought I would enjoy something involving jorts that much.
they only won by 29. HALOL
Zak Irvin has such a nerdy vibe going on. Fast talking, sounds like he is talking through his nose, awkward grinning. Put a smile on my face.
He talk as nerdy as he wants in my book if he shoots like he did tonight.
Beilein gets these privileg edkids (for the most part)...but they can ball.
Typical Hoke/Beilein recruit for you.
This is Michigan.
I want to win this B1G regular season and tournament.
Work took precedence and missed the game POSBANG. open thread FTW.
Back in the win column!
Nice easy to watch game, I like it!
Well, on screen and indeed statistically that was rather dominating performance all around. More importantly, this is a nice birthday present for John Beilein and congratulations to the team on a fine win indeed. Hopefully, we get some momentum that we can take into the second round of "AHHH!" on the conference schedule. It does go to show, of course, that when this team can establish itself early and get into a rhythm, they can easily make it a long game for their opponent.
Go Blue, MGoFriends.
to have on in the background while writing a research summary. Take that, two birds!
Jorts are the key
We won by 29 while scoring 4 points in the last ten minutes. What a rout.
Largest margin of victory for the Wolverines in a Big Ten game since beating Indiana 112-64 on February 22, 1998. Also the largest margin of victory in any game of the John Beilein era. (h/t Matt Shepard)
holy crap, what went on in THAT game?
Technically, nothing happened, as it's one of the vacated games. But see this AP story for details. Says it was at the time the most points ever given up by a Bobby Knight–led Indiana team.
"If you asked our players, they couldn't give you an answer as to what happened," Knight said. "It looked like we made no effort to prepare for the game, neither the players nor the coaches."
Prepare yourself for ten minutes of awesome
Traylor was a man among boys. Thanks for posting the highlight reel of that game.
Really? We've never won a game by 30 under Beilein?
Sorry about that—I either misheard what Shephard said or he misspoke. This is what the game notes say:
The 29-point victory is Michigan's largest margin of victory in a conference win since they beat Indiana 112-64 (+48) on Feb. 22, 1998. It is the largest margin of victory in a conference win under head coach John Beilein and marks the sixth 20-plus-point win of the season at home.
Bang for beating Kenpom!
We banged them all right....
all this signing day stuff I forgot we had a BB team! Go Blue! Goodbye Big Red!
But I hope everyone really appreciates this game. It wasn't all about making a ton of 3's...we executed and GOT good looks. It wasn't a bunch of off-balance nonsense.
If we would've truly been on fire (Like Irvin was for that stretch in the 1st half) then we would've scored 85-90 points. We missed some good looks. Plenty of them. But that's not the point...the point is that we were able to execute and get shots that we wanted.
