Big game to see where we are at this early in the season. Change the channel from this miserable UA All American Game.
Open Thread: Michigan @ Indiana
this should be the streaming link if you don't have access to espn3
Hopefully pitt-depaul doesnt go to OT.
Live stream on iPhone?
Indiana has had quite the schedule as of late. Excited for this game.
This guy better make this FT
I feel the same way as those fear boys yelling into the camera.
make this ft dude
WOO! I woulda been pissed.
damn it 3-2 Indiana
Did anyone else see that Depaul cheerleader? Must be low standards...
How hard is it? .8.
Nice move, Tim!
Michigan jerseys look like they have been filled in with highlighter. Are they usually this bright or are these special jerseys?
They're not pro combat. Sorry sparty.
Just thought it out there, given the recent trend in your football uniforms this season. This is the first Michigan basketball game I'm watching this year so wasn't sure if there were new jerseys made.
They're construction safety code. Adidas is playing it safe.
Yes and No. One sign of a successful coach is how well his assistants do after moving on. Would be great to have him back, but good for him. I'll root for him when he doesn't play us. Hard to hate the guy.
Indiana towel boys need to get to work n get the water off of the floor
trey burke looked like he was tripped
Damn, I wish we had that kind of homecourt advantage. That place is nutso.
Floor looked slippery there too on Burke's travel, he almost fell down.
what's with the Crisco on the floor?
Burke will win rookie of the year over Zeller.
Assembly Hall is deafening compared to the Crisler Center.
off the back of the iron every time.
and Hardaway not following his shot for possible rebounds. Add in his lack of D so far and he might as well be on the bench.
The team is being outhustled and doesn't appear like they want to be there. Looks like it's going to be a long night.
That looked like a clean steal by Trey
Thats because it was a clean steal the ref from the back side with no view called that....and then no charge called for smotz....terrible officiating so far
Hardaway needs to be good this game, can't keep bricking stuff
We're definitely not gonna get any calls this game so forget about it
Get a damn rebound.
Fouls against Michigan at Assembly Hall? Color me surprised...
We are playing with no effort.
sleepwalking will get you rolled on the B1G road.
Why don't we play defense?
We are too small and too slow at key positions. We need to make threes to win this game.
It seems to me that we don't communicate well (except Novak) and don't get into good defensive positions (except Novak). We've been straight up lazy so far.
God can they shoot the ball.
Dan Dakich calling this game is nauseating. He is an Indiana slappy. It's the equivalent of Spielman doing OSU game.
Every bounce and roll going the home team's way, going to have to play lights out to win here.
Indiana looks really good, and we never win in that building.
fuck man.. that place is loud as hell. We need to silence that crowd fast or I don't think it'll be close.
Why can we never shoot at Assembly Hall? The lack of defense is inexcusable. Empty the bench.
Oladipo can ignite a crowd instantly.....
(After my calculations) We won't win if Indiana makes every shot.
Hardaway is playing poorly. His guy is consistently getting past him on defense and he's settling for bullshit jumpers rather than going to the basket on offense
down 6 and have the ball... We'll be alright, brother.
Can't buy a charge either it seems.
never heard of them in indiana i guess
Smotrycz should never try to push the ball down the court. He gets way too wild with the ball on the run.
Indiana boos at EVERYTHING.
Burke needs to chill and stop forcing everything.
Just terrible... and not helping on D leading to easy buckets.
Dan Dakich is a fucking jackass.
Wont call any body checks coming off screens
How is blocking fouls that aren't called and seen by the announcers that will lead to fouls on cody seller and get our guys to the line later in the half overrated
Zeller's arms are longer than his friggin' legs.
And Vogrich is too weak!
Terrible defense all around. Their heads are not in this game.
This is just like the Virginia game. If you give these guys open looks from 3 all night, they're going to kill you.
leave guys open for wide open threes. They're only the best 3 point shooting team in the country. why did we need to triple team zeller?
freaking Hannibal Lecter draining threes.
If we keep doubling down this game is over. If beilein doesn't trust the one on one down low then we gotta go zone, doubling down is gonna get us killed against this team.
Hit open 3's all game
See the subject header for what Michigan looks like right now. You could use several synonyms like crap or doo-doo or shit. It all adds up to the same thing.
Burke forcing shots. Hardaway still can't find the bucket. No energy on defense. Getting outhustled and outrebounded. Open looks for every Hoosier.
They need to get their heads in this thing or it's going to get ugly.
Besides the '09 comeback, every game at Assembly is the same, poor shooting, bad officiating and usually a 15+ point loss. We're some depth away from being one of the top B1G teams.
We really really need Hardaway to get going.
Does anyone know of a basketball equivalent of Stassen.com? I'd love to see a year by year break down of U-M vs. IU games.
I like the change to the 1-3-1. Needed to give them a different look.
will eat Zeller Alive next year.
Damn it Trey! Slow down
C'mon, Stu. Play like a senior, fergodssake.
Well one thing good happened today... got RT'ed on Twitter by Mike Rothstein for quoting Sterling Archer.
1 on 3 for the third time. Just stop Trey
I love Burke, but 1 on 3 is not great numbers.
I understand you are a Freshman Trey, but going 1 on 2 and pulling up for a jumper from about 10 feet is not wise.
He's been awful this game.
First real road game jitters?
Burke is pissing me off so much right now.
Dude is taking freshmen mistakes to a whole new level. Settle down, let the offense come to you, and stop forcing things, Trey.
Terrible. Bad pass by Evan. No D for the 23rd time this game. Beilein should be hot.
Why can thy not missssss!
Pretty sure I saw Belein say "Are you fucking stupid?" "Are you that bad?" after Indiana turned bad pass to Hardaway into a 3. Someone tell me that wasn't what he said.
turning out like last year's 80-61 beatdown.
Maybe that will get THJ some confidence.
Timmy got a little lucky there, but I'll take it
Love seeing Belien go off. Coach doesn't lose his cool too often during games, It means something when he does. Hopefully Coach B's eruption gives the boys a jolt
Finally. He has no confidence though. Hardaway hasn't shot well in a while.
Getting it to a single digit game by halftime should be our only goal at this point.
Get this halftime deficit to 8 or less and still have a decent chance.
Great minds think alike.
Is Cody Zeller a one and done type of guy?
How does a guy ranked in the top 20 nationally not even make it to the NBA?
Neither of his brothers were. Then again, he may be better than them...
That's an awful, awful charge on Timmay.
Yeah, but hardly unexpected.
Took the words out of my mouth.
That was a good call and an easy call, Hardaway elbowed the guy and created the contact. Timmy doesn't stick his elbow out he doesn't get called
Terrible fucking call. Give me a damn break.
With Tom Crean's face he looks like he could be a part of the next Angry Birds game.
And with that haircut, he could be Moe on the next 3 Stooges remake.
I stand corrected, I guess you can BUY a charge at Indiana.
Schrute picked his nose a few minutes ago.
through Big Bird?
Block/charge fouls all go to the home team.
With a home court like Assembly Hall, any 50/50 blocking/charging calls are going to the home team 80% of the time. Saw that coming a mile away.
well we're still in it only down 9
That was a big call bc they were taking a timeout I we hit there
This is going to be a rough season. I like our squad but we're overrated and we're currently lacking depth in our big guys. I'll be happy if we're above .500 after B1G play. We're not there yet, not even close right now, but with the combination of our younger players and our recruiting, we won't be out for long.
We are a good squad, just don't have a big team. It's okay, we are well coached and our kids have heart. As I say this we are still coming back! Go Blue! Don't doubt us ever!
I don't think it's that crazy. We have very little presence in the post right now. If J-Mo goes down, we're screwed. And, I like our squad, but I don't like our schedule. We have a brutal run over our entire B1G schedule. Hardaway hasn't been playing up to expectations and it's tough to rely on Burke for so much of our offense. He's very good, but he's still a freshman and he's learning.
Bs call. Thj was out of control but that was no charge.
Player had established legal guarding position. You don't have to be stationary
Indiana can flat out shoot the lights out. That crowd is crazy and they have the best shooting team in the country. I don't expect Michigan to win but I want to see the team play well and not get pummeled. Keep under 12 by half and see what happens.
Hey - even the announcers agree!
That's how bad it was.
STU!!! Feed him the ball
STU!! 5 POINT GAME LEHGGOOOO
that last one was from kokomo
Good god they are money from inside the 3-point arc. It's frustrating, maddening, and sickening.
Well... Christian Watford is good
Burke. Free Throws. Make them.
Morgan kind of bailed out Burke right there.
How is that a foul. These refs are really really bad.
BS foul again!
Ball doesn't lie as IU misses the free throw, Stu could've had a layup though if they didn't call a foul though
3 possession game
players in that bldg and they both have the same last name
c'mon Hardaway take over
is nice. Just face the fact that Indiana is good. For us to win in Bloomington is hard to ask of, but I always have faith. Still in the game at the half too. Hardaway will step up in the 2nd half.
You got one thing right - Watford is really good.
Burke almost made that shot. Eh, so-so half but seven points is doable. Coach the boys up and we have a chance.
I'm not one to complain about the refs and don't have an issue with "home court advantage" but this is ridiculous.
The only possible call I disagree with is the Novak block/charge. After watching it several times, however I agree with the call.
Novak got his feet there in time to take the charge (which is why he was livid) however, his arms were not straight up - he fouled the guy with his arms extended before he took the charge.
The Hardaway charge was correct.
I hate how the announcers always insist that we just shoot 3s and always play a 1-3-1. Watch the game, fellas.
IU shot 55%. That will hopefully come down.
We didn't play well. Being down 7 isn't all that bad for how we played.
Mich was down 33-18 with 5 to go in the half when Belien went off on the team; Michigan outscored IU 14-6 to close out the half. Always good to see your team fight back in hostile environs. Way to go Blue.
PSU beats Purdue by 20.
Cut the bitching about the officiating, srsly. Novaks block was a charge, and thj was called for a bs charge. Other than that it hasnt been that bad, and I definitely am of the opinion that indiana normally gets dukeesque treatment from home officials
Someone in this thread doesn't like us complaining about the refs.
Hey guy, the internet was made for complaining.
Well im complaining about the complaining then, lol
Guys, Suck it up. We all knew the refs would be terrible due to the game being at Assembly Hall. Heck, even Jalen Rose admitted that on Nat'l TV today.
What do we have to do to get calls go for us at Chrysler?
Have a more raucous atmosphere... Seriously though, we probably do get some calls go our way, but not as much, at crisler.
fouls are 7-7. Watford will cool, THJR will heat up.
Novak! Great start
And 1 for THJ
With Zach in foul trouble and on the bench, we need Stu to come up big.
Burke needs to work on those FT's.
Burke. Free Throws. Make Them. SERIOUSLY.
"I don't think we have met before..."
Timmy has to make that pass. That is an easy 2 we missed out on.
It was as if Morgan wanted to dunk without the ball.
I put that just as much on Morgan. Hardaway threw a catchable pass right to the basket, but Morgan was kinda drifting away from the hoop for some inexplicable reason
We should be winning. Two missed free-throws and the bad passes.
Well thank you very much for the return turnover
And it's tied! Lets keep the pressure on!
standing on his head /hockeytalk
There you go!
Too many forced shots!!! Damn it!
Unnecessary shot by Burke. Seems like that is happening way too often
This game is SO winnable.
We just need to calm down and make the passes.
This is where missing Horford hurts.
First time we've seen Burke be a freshman this year. Not surprisingly in his first B1G road game.
Burke doesn't force often, but we still had :15 on the shot clock.
The last facet of the game for a Michigan victory is for Burke to get going.
If Burke plays a little less like a freshman, we have a chance to with this game (and make those damn free throws).
This is when Timmy needs to take over because it is obvious that Burke is struggling and forcing too much.
That's Michigan ball!!!!!!
Damned forced shots!!!
Idk what is and isn't a foul anymore.
Ok, this officiating is terrible.
Smotz gets killed in the lane, no call, Zeller gets his arm hair tickled, and 1.
I yelled obscenities at that crap. And it's his 3rd. I don't like complaining but that was just crap.
I don't like Cody Zeller.
I look forward to seeing McGary against him next year
That refs will not let anyone come into assembly hall and steal a win!!! It's as bad as playing duke at home such bullshit!!
the complete opposite of Dan Dakich
But there's 2 ends of the court
The officiating isn't going to change. We need to stop forcing the damn ball and run our sets!
Indiana must have the alumni cheerleaders in for tonight.
Morgan is a rebound away from a double double, he's really stepped it up
I hate Tom Crean. Stop forcing the ball!!!
we're up 10 if they call an even game.
Still winnable but Burke can't buy a shot.
Creen + Zeller I hate these guys
Tom Crean looks like he always has a stick in his butt.
He looks like everything Bobby knight hates.
Should be Michigan's ball again
in THJ. He cant seem to get his own shot off against good competition
Loose ball automatically go to Indiana
Yes. The refs are partial.
Almost as bad as a game in east Lansing.
Zeller also touched that last.
Zeller tipped it out
Homered!!! Fucking bullshit
When they looked at the replay to add more time they chose to double the ignore.
Crean looks like a douche.
What's with all the silly, knees bent, running about, advancing behavior?
I am all about Lowes now.
Hall wanted a new tractor.
Get. The. Fuck. Back. On. Defense.
Impossible to come back when they get 3 points everytime down the court.
This is such bullshit! I hope someone in the media notices this homer ref stuff.
This is total GUCKING BULLSHIT
Watford never misses
So a team is better than us and naturally we start thinking they are all douches... IU is a great team who is playing in one of the loudest courts in the NCAA
Stop being rational.
No, Crean IS a douche. Never said anything about the players. And they're not better tonight, they're getting calls tonight. They may be better overall, but we're getting jobbed by the refs.
How is he a douche? Because he comes from Izzo's coaching tree?
You are taking this all too seriously. Do we think that are actually douches? No. I'm sure most of those guys are all good people.
This is all part of rooting for your team.
One of the most bias courts in NCAA I live here I kn
DAMN THJ DAMN
Damn, Tim, get on up!
That's more like it! Fuck Indiana!
It's a perfect storm of shots not dropping, porous defense, ridiculously accurate IU shooting, and questionable calls. Surprised we're not down by more honestly.
Goes the dynamit!
Hardaway said "Oladipo this, bitch"
I thought his name was Home Depot now.
Keep giving THJ the ball
How is this wadford kid get that wide open? Someone find #2 and get a hand in his face
Two or three stops and we are back in it.
If Timmy could just find his outside shot...
It finally falls for Burke. Now please guard Watford
These fucking weak fouls are the bullshit that's keeping them ahead.
I'm getting a good feeling.
The only difference in this game is shooting, IU can't miss
Not saying the reffing is good, but if you were reffing in that building you would call everything against Michigan too
pull this out of your ass.
I am looking to buy a break. Refs are you selling? No?!?!
Novak is the man!
We finally got one.
ALL CAPS THE REST OF THE GAME AND WE WILL WIN!!! LET'S GO!!!!
I am really gonna miss Novak. He is like RVB, Molk and Martin all wrapped into one. Except in basketball.
I love this team!
Burke needs to stop shooting unless it's a gimme
Nevermind, I'm an idiot
One of those no no what are you thinking.....YES!!! keep doing that haha
Down three. WE GOT THIS>
Burke's heating up!
OOPS, I MEAN...BURKE'S HEATING UP!
Simply amazing shot by Burke
We should let Jones dribble around some more he is horrible, but I love it!!!
That's a walk!!!!
This team has it. I thought they were done a couple times, and they just keep coming back.
On Watford an let's guy this out for a W
Indiana should be shitting their pants right about now!
SHOCK THE WORLD, BABY!
MAKE THESE FTS THJR AND ENGAGE YOUR KILLSWITCH PLEASE.
DAMN FREE THROWS!!!
I will not complain about the officiating...
I will not complain about the officiating...
I will not complain about the officiating...
I will not complain about the GODDAMN OFFICIATING...
(But yeah, that was a dumb foul on Douglass)
Why have we turned into the team who shits their pants at the free throw line.
Stu not playing like a senior there
Win or lose, you've got to love this team's heart.
Helluva turn around in effort from the start of the game.
These are NOT fouls
GO BIG OR GO HOME!
Bad foul by Stu and the worst part is he seemed intent on getting the foul. Ref let the first couple fouls go.
We never make those early 3s.
BEST MOVE IS TO MAKE THEM DEFEND THE WHOLE CLOCK.
Bad shot, bad foul...come on Stu! THJ time!
Shot selection we didn't need that stu!!
How many minutes has this kid played
Every loose ball goes to IU
Dumb by Morgan, hold on to the ball and we get it, we have the possession arrow.
Thought it was a jump ball personally
A jump ball
The refs waited to help Indiana.
THJ is disgustingly cold..please heat up THJ<3 haha we need that big shot like against Minny
We look tired. Just a little more, boys.
ALL CAPS PEOPLE, WE'RE STILL IN THIS!!!
IT AIN'T OVER TILL IT'S OVER!!!
So many stupid decisions during these last couple minutes...
WE SHOULD BE UP BY THREE OR MORE!
The big shot?
Can't is way overdue for a triple
What is all this talk about Chin.
Novak will hit a three. Bank it
