Thats a fitting end, THJ missing a 3.
Open Thread/DVR Reminder: Michigan basketball @ Iowa 1:00 Big Ten Network
This team is highly overrated. Today we really reminded me of last years MSU team. No inside presence at all, guys floating around the 3 point line, killed on the glass. This was a horrible loss. Hopefully it can be turned into a positive. We need work everywhere.
for the terrible shooting. Can't win games shooting in the 30%'s.
Need to sit THJ for a start. Make him earn it back. His shooting and choices are horrid. Smotz, too.
LOL @ announcers for thinking Iowa could make the tourney.

This is a team coming off a huge comeback win and facing their biggest rival in the next game. They had a mandatory day on Thursday (per Beilein's presser), so they had about half a day to prep for this, once you factor in travel. Also, while Iowa may be one of the worst teams in the B1G, that isn't that bad a thing to be. They are going to approach the top 100 in the RPI after this win, which comes after a win on the road over Wisconsin. Michigan was lucky each of the last three years to escape Iowa City with a win, but the shots just didn't fall today. These are college kids, and games like this happen Let's move on, learn from this, and beat MSU on Tuesday.
All around. Unc is down. So is ksu, and Marquette. And hopefully state.
Coach B keeps telling THJ to shoot when you're no thitting and that's not the answer.
what an abomination
burke thinks he's NBA ready already.... keep shooting from NBA range...wtf
Everyone needs to calm down. It's basketball, probably the easiest sport to get losses to worse teams. We played like shit, just hope we don't play like shit for the rest of the season.
I appreciate what Belien has done with this program and he's a great coach, but he's taken us out of rythm the last two games sitting our leaders with two fouls. Our guys need to figure out a way to get up for these lesser teams,you can't only play your best against the best teams. Burke showed some fight near the end and Novak played good, hopefully those two can elevate the play of THJ and Smot come Tuesday
I'd say 10 of those came in the last 5 minutes while we were trying to comeback from 15.
Calm down bud.
I think MSU officials made our schedule, we have to play every three days until February
Wow, just checked in to see how the game went. I'm really glad I didn't watch this. While most on here won't agree, we shouldn't be in the Top 25 when the next rankings come out. We are a painfully overrated team. Have been all season.
Next year we might be a Top 15 team. This year we're just not. Top teams don't lose games like this. Period. Road game or not. Bad officiating or not. Missing shots or not. You don't lose by 20 to Iowa if you're a contender.
It happens. UNC just lost by 33 to FSU. Road games are toss ups.
Played terrible, but it wouldn't be the Big Ten if there weren't the occasional slip-up, just ask Indiana this week.
I guarantee we win tuesday against Sparty to advenge that football loss. This was a wakeup call couldn't have come at better time. Ill take a lost at Iowa for a sparty win anyday of the week. GO BLUE!
is no longer there for Tue. If they lose on Tue, it could very well turn into a five game slide w/ the next three on the road after this. Coach B better have them hitting the gym as soon as they step off the f'n plane.
Is absolutely brutal. 4 at home, 8 on the road. 4 at home = MSU, Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana. This could get ugly if shots don't start falling.
That said, lot of ball to be played.
