to play football, not to play trumpet
WHY THE HELL ARE YOU SHOOTING A LONG TWO?!!
Robinson definitely got fouled there.
Great stop! Now let's slice this deficit!
ya, you're the guy i want taking that shot with 30 sec left on the clock. holy shit.
Embarrassing effort by Stauskas today.
Literally cannot let them anywhere near the basket without fouling. Jesus.
If you think that wasn't a foul I can see why you would be upset
I think it was a foul but apparently we can't defend without hacking today.
hey Glenn, stop shooting jumpers until you figure out how to make them.
what do you know, GRIII with another lazy jumper that never had a prayer
Not sure why the long 2 there, terrible shot selection by GRIII IMO.
QUIT SHOOTING THE BALL ROBINSON
he continues to dissapoint
Is stauskus sick? I havent seen one possession where we set a on-ball screen
With the heady 20 foot jumper.
One fucking man is beating us.
Irvin is in. Playing time is available if he takes it.
That was a lazy, lazy, long range jump shot with so much time left on the shot lock
How many fouls do they have? We need to get the bonus.
get your head in the game.
I almost can't watch this anymore... Too stressful. I hate IU.
LMAO at Morgan
Morgan not having a good day from the line. Nothing going our way at all today.
J-MO can't get the first.
And you short the fuck out of your free throw. Sick.
Please make FTs, k thx.
Stauskas is sulking like a spoiled 13 year old. Really embarrassing.
This really really sucks. Im always negative but its too bad. We could have jumped into top 6 with a win today.
Need to get some stops, I advise not fouling
SHE-HE just traveled his ass off!
Everything going wrong for us, everything going right for them.
Of couse he makes the fucking floater. Game.
floating 15 footer with 2 sec on the clock
Despite Sheehey hitting that goofy shot, the 1-3-1 looks like it's working
a loss was bound to happen. Give them a break. After the stretch they just went through undefeated they more than deserve to have people overlook a bad game.
My thoughts as well. Just hope they rebound well for the next game if they can't close out a win here.
IIIIIIRRRRRVINN! He came to play
Thank you Caris... Good stop D!
Is such a bum...That runner was ridiculous
I know it was a foul but at least Indiana attacks the fucking basket
Got bailed out by ref there. Need a hoop
Yup, that's a foul
Still a game. Don't give up!
Are we currently being bailed out by the refs?
Obvious foul call. He was mugged on his way to the bucket. Stop booing.
shehee. you scraped all the way down his arms.
Curious that Horford has barely played today
Curious that Horford has barely played today
morgan has played way better today, so he gets the minutes.
That's it Nik! Be aggresive!
Do it, IU.
D up hard the rest of the way let's go!
Love Stauskas draining it amidst the U-S-A chant
Just go a gift there from the officials, that ball was never touched and they actually called a charge and that tie up could have been a no call or jump ball
Touching the rim is goaltending. Stauskas was raked before the tie up by another guy.
IU player jumps down to the floor, foul called.
Can someone explain how to play defense with these calls? I think Kraft is the only one that knows
For bad call where nik was bailed out
That was a flop start to finish.
Going at the rim= fouls! Maybe we should do the same?!
And miss out on off-balanced long range 2s early in the shot clock? That's a bold strategy...
Now wake the f up, Stauskas. Caris is playing his heart out on both sides of the court, and Nik is alternating between standing and walking. Really disappointed in him today.
...was stand there.
The charge was a charge and the tie up was a foul.
IU has two options. Ferrell from deep or uncontrolled run into the lane and bash into the first Michigan player you see and get the foul call.
Kind of amazing to watch the IU half-court offense. Everyone looks afraid to create or try to shoot other than Ferrell. You can see them actively looking for Ferrell on every possession
Man, the haters really come out of the woodwork as soon as we we have an off day
"Cant wait for GRIII to go pro"
"Cant wait for Morgan to graduate"
People lose in college basketball sometimes. On the road at IU is a pretty understandable place for that to happen.
People lose in college basketball, but Stauskas is sulking.
Amateur hour around here during games.
First half of the MSU game was unbearable. Like 10 minutes in and "it's over" crap.
I've been hoping for Morgan to leave for the past years, in my defense.
Yogi is pretty good, guys.
Nick and Glenn still in Ann Arbor today.
They will be the ones to win the game for us if we pull it out
Nik's effort today has been embarrassing. I've never seen a premier offensive player not even try to get touches like he has today.
How is that a foul?
Anyone getting a close up profile of Izzo must be a proctologist.
Tom Izzo's newest excuse "I didn't have time to coach my guys because I was filming a special about how great of a coach I am!"
What is this offense? Wasted opportunity there.
How does that not go in...
That's the story of the game. Stauskas drives in, misses, miss the tip in.
Lol. What isn't with hat place
morgan. gotta have these.
We just cannot get a lead. Everytime we get close we can't put a run together.
Big 3? Cold streak
Big Stop? Clank on the other end
Nik is just standing in the corner almost every possession
Morgan is 1 of 5 from the line.
1/5 from the line. Ugh
Welp, awful game.
what was that?
Morgan's free throws are the difference.
LOL latest call of all time!
Morgan...free throws...come on, man.
Can't miss layups guys
Stauskas needs to pick his head up and play basketball.
Walton missed Glenn wide open.
does anyone on this team want to win this? Stauskus isn't taking over...GRIIIi, not sure if he is even on the floor he has been so quite...Morgan missing clutch FT
Oh it was on the rebound I retract my previous lol
Bottom line: their star leading them to victory and ours has been completely neutralized. And we should have gone to the zone a lot sooner.
Such a scrub
Look forward to the fact that we'll probably beat them by 25 in A2. We're not going to play this ugly at home
Nik still has a lot to learn in how to lead a team
Just no luck today.
luck? You mean desire and drive
No luck at all! That Stauskas basket spinning out represents our luck today!!
FT shooting killing them
Lol, fucking make free throws.
This is awful
Fucking free throws.
FUCK ME WE SUCK ASS AT FREE THROWS
LMAO at GR3. Why is he even in?
Michigan...free throws...come on, guys.
here come the FT misses. luv ya gr3. great effort today.
Can't win them all but losing to this asshole after his antics last year is disappointing.
Can't make free throws. Dumb fouls.
Unfortunately we all found out that this team is a tad overrated today.
We are on the road not overated
If it was MSU or Iowa I would agree, but Indiana is not a good team and they more or less controlled this start to finish.
This is still the Big 10 and we are on the road. We've already stolen two on the road and were never going to go undefeated in this conference.
welp, that pretty much summarizes the game
FREE THROWS. THEY ARE FREE TAKE THEM THEY WANT YOU TO HAVE THEM THEY HAVE THE WORD FREE IN THEM!
We lose at Iowa sadly
Pure lazy and no heart effort by our stars gr3 and nik
GR3 isn't a star...
The plus is that there doesn't appear to be a single player worthy of entering the NBA early on our team, based on what I see today.
Ha - good point!
More missed free throws. No one can make it happen today.
Excuse me while I extract these needles from my eyes.
Morgan's confidence is way too fragile.
Unbelievable. Paging GR3. There is a game today in Bloomington, Indiana. Please also inform the rest of the team.
Road wins are always hard to come by. That said, YOU MUST HIT YOUR FREE THROWS
Morgan and GR3 horrible
We make those last 2 sets of FTs and this is a 2 point game. Ugh what a bad day.
Ugh missing the front end of 1 and 1's will kill you everytime.
What a terrible game by us ... Stauskas can't hit anything, LaVert is full of bad decisions, and we can't make FTs. No great.
That's it. They're not coming back from this.
a drive by gr3.
Wouldve been really cool for GRIII to do that sometime earlier in the game.
This looks more like the Michigan team I remember shooting free throws. Missing front ends down the stretch while the other team nails them. Could be a close game, but now IU will win by 10+. I hate those guys.
Oh Robinson, I wish you would do that more often.
Like I understand teams have a bad day and lose sometimes, but to these fucking guys? Bleh.
Robinson gets memo there is a basketball game in the 39th minute.
As shitty as we played, all we had to do was make free throws
Free throws have failed us today we had been doing much better
Indiana's got to be shooting 90%
That was awfully close to a goaltend...
Goddammit. I'm calling state to win the big ten. Fuck Indiana and that ugly midget
What a terrible effort.
Wow. Just wow.
should be absolutely embarrassed with their effort and performance today.
HIs arm got hit. How is that a good no call?
Has anyone on offense moved today besides LeVert? Honestly he seems to be the only player that's moving with and without the ball.
Don't get why coach B didn't get a TO before that last possession. Looked lost
Terrible effort today. I give our chance sof winning big ten now under 50%. MSU is just gonna be better on the road going forward if 6 foot point guards can shut down Stauskus the entire game
Damn, I hate playing at Indiana
Yea this game sucked. It was just that, a shitty game. I have no doubt we're a better team than these dudes, no doubt at all. OH well, ya can't win 'em all.
We made IU look like fucking Syracuse
Not a terrible loss. They were due for one. The road wins we got were highly impressive, so this loss doesn't hurt too badly.
What do you know, Levert goes hard to the basket until he gets an open shot, then he stops, picks up his dribble and fucks himself. He does it every single time. and for the capper GRIII was just castrated
We lost because we couldnt hit shots on the road and Yogi Ferrell went 7-of-8 from 3. We win if Ferrell isn't lights out from 3
That's the same argument msu uses when we beat them
No we lost because a couple players decided to play half as hard as they can. No effort
we lost because stauskus and gr3 gave zero hustle or effort today. if they do, we win, even if their shots aren't falling. 3 rebounds for gr3 is an absolute joke. i think he is averaging 2 per game over the last 5 games.
Horrible effort all around today.
Haha a fitting end. Just completely outdone in this one.
gets owned on the FT rebound.
Well we knew we were not going to go undefeated just didn't need this to be the loss.
This team should be embarrassed.
God dammit IU is the oen team we can never fucking beat.
So they can run the clock out but go for a bucket. Classy.
Alright. Maybe this fuels the fire a bit more. A loss can be a good thing. Just come back and get through gauntlet 2
Absolutely pathetic performance by everyone including the coaching staff
i thought levert, walton, morgan and even irvin played hard today. gr3 and nik, not so much.
We earned this one...embaressing effort.
Pathetic stuff. Humiliating effort level from our team leaders.
To helll with Indiana.
John Beilein always wins and loses with class
Unlike Tom Crean
Thinks he's kevin Durant out there.
Horrendous effort, terrible all around game.
LeVert played with heart on defense and carrier us on offense. He and Walton can hold their head up after this.
morgan. remember he was going up against a 6-11 guy.
Why did Crean yell at Meyer like that last year?
Why did Crean blow a gasket on Meyer last year?
because meyer used to assitant coach at indiana and during this time indiana had some issues. Crean decided to use this time to start accusing him
from EVERYONE...GR3 should be benched..if hes not going contribute then someone else should be given a shot
Invisible Man strikes again.
Bright side is that this game showed Stauskas isn't ready to leave yet.
Don't wanna jump ship or make a bigger deal over one road loss than I should. But this team was awful today. Terrible. Indiana didn't even play well except for one guy. The offense was disjointed and unorganized, the defense was weak defending penetration as has been a theme through most games. This was bad, and now we've lost our lead in the conference.
Now the pressure is on, because the breathing room is gone.
We knew the run wouldn't last forever but this performance was just ugly. Poor execution on offense, got out rebounded in the second half. GR3 and Stauskas not showing up and an inability to even SLOW DOWN Ferrell. Disappointing loss but coming back home vs Nebraska will hopefully see us play better and get back in the win column.
It's one thing to play bad but another to not play hard. GR3 just doesn't look like he's hustling.
Butttt we all knew it is a tough conference. Hope we can rebound from this loss.
I just don't understand what I just watched. That was not the basketball team I watched over the last 10 games.
Finish just an all around awful game to watch
Guys - we're not as good as we thought. I think that's obvious. Our win over Wisconsin looks less impressive as they fall towards the NIT and the Big 10 stinks overall. I heard it on TV.
Worst performance of the season. Just awful. Morgan hustled. Walton played pretty well. Irvin was ok. Everyone else was total shit
Eh oh well. It would've been nice to beat Indiana though!
Wonder if Brian is satisfied with the terrible shooting performance he basically begged for in the last write up? Jinx City.
Ever since the preview post popped up here, I was nervous about this game. Nearly every single time there is an MGo preview disparaging our next opponent, we lose. Or so it seems to me right now.
Well the season will turn one way or the other now. I hate that it happened against IU, but of course it was going to. I think we all knew that.
Just win out at home and take a couple more road games and we're good. If they didn't learn anything from the sluggish win vs. Purdue, they'll certainly learn from this abysmal loss today.
must be powerful in person, because I COULD EFFING SEE HIM OPEN FOR A SHOT ON TV!
Shots just weren't falling today. Seems like the story of the day, but it is what it is. Good teams have games like this all the time, and it doesn't change the fact that Assembly Hall is a tough place to play. And we were not going undefeated in conference play.
We still get these guys at home, where I like our chances, so we've got the chance for the last laugh.
Besides, I'll take beating Sparty in EL over beating IU in Bloomington any day.
Our team better come out hungry against Indiana at home. I still believe we should have won last year!!
Nik should be humiliated. He's this team's best player, and he just sulked out there. He didn't want the basketball the entire second half. On probably half or more of our possessions, he didn't even make a move to come out of the corner for it. Just stood there and watched.
You need a junior year, dude.
L O FUCKING L
Kids talking shit to me because they go to IU and I don't go to UofM. Awesome.
plus how many shots did IU make with less than 3 sec on the shot clock. reminded me of all of those amaker defenses.
to have read through this this thread when we were playing Staee. Sheesh....Cmon guys lets win it for the posters in here, give us something good to talk about.
Fuck fuck fuck. Watching that game on the floor in the student section was miserable. Why didn't they just give Stauskas the damn ball? Let him bring the ball up the court
Well, we all knew that IU had to have this game to save their program. We will smoke them in AA after they find out their program has been creaned.
Stauskas dribbling full court against pressue would not end well. Nik had plenty of opportunities and either passed it back or missed.
bug or something. I guess you can't win em all, especially in the B1G. I wonder if this game will mean anything? I really, really hope not.I bet they play this game over and over on the B1G network till IU gets sick of it and won't want to watch it anymore.Well its on to the super bowl where I can't for the life of me pick one of those teams I want to win. I want both teams to lose and win how strange is that?
