Gotta get timmy and Burke out there. Shorten this lead before half.
Open Thread/DVR Reminder: Michigan basketball @ Iowa 1:00 Big Ten Network
you willing to settle for Akunne and Hardaway. Typing that I didn't think it would rhyme but it does.
If Akunne can get guys open like he just did on that last made 3. But we gotta get some movement.
Our first bad loss to put on the resume if we don't wake up
Really ugly basketball right now. They don't seem to be playing with an purpose and meaning. They look slow and unmotivated. It is really hard to watch. Come on boys!
It's like the ref didn't see him dribble. It was a clean pivot on his right foot, then a dribble, then the layup.
Agreed. I've seen much worse. I though it was an "and one"
but i effing hate that he effectively fouls his players out of the rest of the half ... in fear that they might foul out of the game
We look like we have never played a game of basketball before. No defense. No help defense. Terrible shot selection. No movement on offense. We look like we do not want to be out there. No emotion. Lets get it together!
I will say it again. Evan Smotrycz is giving us nothing. This team is absolutely sleepwalking and is in big trouble. Where's the fire? Even Novak is gun shy!
This may be the worst we've looked all year.
And we've had some bad games.
I hate to say this, but we're playing like a team that needs an asschewing to whip into shape. 7 turnovers? Being outplayed by Iowa?
Are slow starts becoming a habit for us? This feels a lot like the beginning of the Bradley/Minnesota/Indiana/Northwestern game.
WTF? I'm stuck at work and they're shitting the bed against IOWA?!
Just starting slow against iowa...lots of time left in this game.
Really needed that 3 there. Great hustle by Vogrich to make it happen.
Smotz seems to be turning the ball over a bunch...
Is late and deflected!
I am in favor of a beating today if it means we play inspired Tuesday night. Win over MSU outweighs a loss to Iowa
Mitch McGary and Brewster on ESPN tomorrow at 4PM.
Why does Iowa's pep band wear hockey jerseys?
Smot's hustle is taking over the game
You mean his turnovers?
But long term, learning to play without Burke could pay dividends down the road(I dont think he'll be able to play the entire game every game as he did against NW)
will throw a pass to any cutter with no consideration to whether or not hes open
Burke and THJ aren't going to foul out of the game, Beilein better not do this against MSU
Make a damn free throw. Ridiculous.
We should scrimmage 30 minutes before game time to get these bad starts out of the way
The lack of Burke is really hurting us
Not lookin too good...Hardaway just throwin up 3's
better play 20 minutes straight next half...
Well that was just garbage. Freakin a that was awful
son of a bitch
3-16 from 3 = Death
I think the fact that we've attempted nearly as many 3's as we have points is also indicative of Death
From the Ellerbee era!
Cazzie Russell please talk to these guys
Everything is coming up Iowa. Ugh. Is McNutt there or something?
looks like its going to be a bad week for Michigan basketball.. i see a few losses in a row coming up
If we continue playing like this, that's the only B1G team we'll be beating. If I were a pollster, I'd drop us out of the top 25 after the performances against Northwestern and Iowa this week.
Can they get Mitch there in 15 minutes?
3-16 from 3, 8 TOs. Good news: we'll have Burke back for the whole second half. Not having him in there just kills us.
It seems like we never have a good possession at the end of the first half.
Hate to say it but this team is very average.
You do realize that we just played 13 minutes without possibly our best player?
It really sucks to only have one real point guard, and a freshman at that. If he gets into foul trouble, we are in huge trouble no matter who we play.
With a fresh Burke and hopefully Morgan and Hardaway prepared to do their second half thing, M can scratch out a victory in Iowa City, though I don't feel real good about it.
