Open Thread: Michigan @ Indiana
Michigan's lack of depth might do them in here at the end. Burke looks gassed. I don't think Vogrich has played in the 2nd half. Belien basically going with a 6 man rotation.
Did Novak get in a knife fight with some would-be assailants again? Quite a scar on his right arm.
Hardaway is ice cold from outside the arc.
AND YET HE KEEPS SHOOTING BAD SHOTS!
Tim with a couple of good looks just not hitting.
Everytime they NEED to make one they can't do it!
That is all.
Novak and Smot need to be the ones
Let novak shot for once!!
Tim I love ya but really bad shot selection in the final two minutes.
shot selection the last few possessions.
terrible offensive possesion. Stop here or go home.
Shit, tim that was a big miss...
every chance to win this game but just missed every shot down the stretch. but hung around well on the road at a top 12 team and could have won. not just on the road either, but at assembly where the refs are always good for at least one ridiculous pro indiana call in the last two minutes, and sure enough, that bogus traveling call on novak. regardless, it was close and this bodes well.
Hardaway's had a great second halfbut those open 3s are killing him.
That is HORSESHIT
Well - that sucks.
GOD DAMN IT! So close!
Ugh...oh well, the loss shouldn't hurt us too bad if we can take care of the winnable games and steal one or two on the road later on
Did Indiana shoot 80%? Because it sure felt like it.
Same damn thing as the duke game. Whenever they'd get close they'd miss a shot and IU would pull back away
Terrible officiating in my entire life. We win if not for getting homered
Beilein was going to blow his top, understandably. Burke got mugged with no call. Zeller hasa been shoving people out of the way to get his separation, no calls. Novak got the hip check and they call him for travelling. Unreal.
At least the young un's can see why you should hate Indiana. Especially in Bloomington.
ripping into THJ going into this TO.
well i have hatred for assembly hall and indiana now, we got SOOOOO DAMN CLOSE AHHHHH,
Burke plays his worst game of the year, THJ goes 0-7 from 3, still were in it till the final minute against a (soon to be) top 10 team on the road. Could be worse.
if burke or hardaway do anything, they get a good road win. dammit!
Bullshit refs and dumb shots by Timmy at the end. Oh and GODDAMN FREE THROWS!
THJ.....you may be able to score, but your defense is horrible!
Ugh, what a terrible game by THJ. Bad shots, lazy defense. THJ playing like a freshmen in the second half after Burke played like a freshmen in the first half.
Hardaway played far below what he is capable of, but the game isn't this close without him,he makes things happen.
Dunno about that. His negatives tonight far outweighed his positives. Love him, but he's good enough to take that criticism. He's not a three point shooter yet took 7 of them tonight. Made none. That's maybe his worst night as a Wolverine. Great dunk to keep it close, but we need smarter plays throughout the game. I trust him to turn it around.
That said, it's an encouraging game. Lot's of unforced turnovers, terrible shots, poor shooting from our star guards and we almost sneak out of Assembly Hall with a B10, top-15 road win.
Well he was 7-11 from on two pointers, 5-6 from the foul line, where are those points going to come from on this team? He also had 4 steals and 4 boards, with a couple of those boards coming where he just went up above everybody and went and got it.
One play in particular that illustrates his importance to the team, was the play where he drove underneath the bucket, got his shot blocked, and in a heartbeat was able to recover the ball, jump and lay it in before anyone else could even get off the floor. You can't coach that shit, nobody else on this team can make plays like that.
In a way, this game should never have been close. In another way, I feel a little hosed by exceptionally cold shooting and some bad calls.
game over not into moral victories but last year we lost by 20 at assembly hall and each year of Beilen we are getting better. If we play like we did with the grit and intensity we will beat State.
A bald version of Toby from the Office.
Love how they show jones shot 3 times but wont show the so called travel on novak
take such horrible shots the last few minutes of the game we might have pulled this one out.
IT AINT OVAH YET!!!
LOL now we hit that. Still a chance
Holy friggin crap Stuart
WAIT JUST ONE SECOND HERE...
(MAY THE POWER OF THE CAPS LOCK BE WITH US)
A faster foul on the last play would have been nice.
