"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

Holy athletisism GR3!
Second time Morgan deflected an offensive rebound out of Robinsons hands.
Morgan with the offensive rebound?!?
Love the finish by Morgan, he's improved so much in his athleticism from last year!
Morgan is playing much more angry this year.
Morgan is playing his ass off on both ends of the court
The weight loss makes him so much more athletic. Huge bonus.
What's troubling about Vogrich isn't his poor shooting it's his effort. He was loafing aimlessly. Aimless, whatever, loafing, unacceptable.
you saw lack of effort? I saw fear.
Bellomy played w more confidence at Nebraska.
Do you have a specific example? If you're going to question a player's effort - in any sport - then you need to be able to back it up.
I saw him get out-sized on a couple rebounds, but poor effort?
In fact, him fighting the guy back and getting that foul says the exact opposite.
It was a dumb frustration foul
Paging Tim Hardaway. Where are you, Mr. Hardaway?
A close game will help Michigan later in the season learn how to finish.
The game has started young man..,
Defensively, we're at our best when both teams get set in the half court offense, we are solid on coverage and rotating defenders.
Not a fan of John Saunders doing pbp
Dakich, on the other hand, I like. He immediately calls out ticky tack fouls and has some great insights.
Michigan feeling out the big stage at MSG. Time to settle down.
#13 on Pitt, one of 18 kids all girls over 6'5" and all boys over 6'10". Yikes.
Offense starting to click.
Wow, there's a great example of how well Morgan was playing. McGary hedging that pick and roll resulted in many sad pandas.
LOL MCGARY WUT.
McGary with the fingerroll!
...but what's up with Akunne spelling Hardaway?
Oh yeah McGary! Nice little lay in!
OOOOOOH the gliding fingerroll from Mitch!!!!
Ok then Mitch!
I don't care what their coach is doing!!! Full screen dammit
...what Dixon is doing? Seriously, does anyone really, REALLY care what his reaction is to every play of the damn game. Obviously and whole-heartedly NO.
Our depth is going to help us wear down and overcome PITT eventually.
Why are they wasting some of my 40-inches on the Pitt coach? That's nearly as bad as ESPN's football camera angles.
Pitt's hitting their shots early while we're working the kinks out. Should get better as the game goes on.
Soiling himself on national TV.
Hardaway needs to wake the hell up.
EDIT: See? He listened.
That's going to be a classic McGary gif.
Gotta love Hardaway getting aggressive, hope that gets him going a bit.
THJ says shut up.
Lots of Swag coming off of Hardaway right now!
Michigan doesn't seem to be playing bad. Pitt is playing great and we aren't hitting open shots.
M not playing badly. Pitt is hitting everything.
THJ says Darius Morris says
stauskas is off right now, otherwise we'd be fine.
