Predictions for Mich/NMU bball
Ask THE_KNOWLEDGE. Oh, wait...
Glenn Robinson III does something that makes everyone's jaw drop.
Stauskas shows flashes of his shooting ability but misses a few because of first game jitters.
McGary doesn't dominate because of his leg thing and people freak out unnecessarily.
Makes everyone forget about RG3 and scores 15, of which one bucket is a monster dunk showing off his athletic ability.
will this preseson game be on B1G Network? Hope so - I'm overseas and want to stream it. Crazy as its only a preseason game, but I am so excited for UM bball season to begin, and I'm very interesting/curious to see how the new boys play.
UMHoops lists BTN.com as the "TV" provider. It's defnitely not on regular BTN, at least according to my TV guide.
is BTN.com free?
The game is listed in the live events tab at BTN.com, but a subscription to their network is $14.95 per month or $119.95 per year, but there are student discounts for member institutions, of course ($9.99 per month or $79.95 per year, if memory serves).
As others have mentioned, all signs point to the game being streamed on MGoBlue.com, so that's definitely the better bet, but if BTN is the provider, I wonder if you have to sign up for it.
My OSU friend has a subscription but still could not get the OSU game to play two nights ago despite much effort from both of us. To make a long story short, I was thoroughly unimpressed with both the BTN site and their customer service...Also, remember that signing up for BTN.com means that you have an ongoing subscription, i.e., you will be charged every month until you cancel.
They replayed the OSU exhibition game yesterday during the day (I want to say around three or so?) on regular BTN, so it could still end up on the air, just not live.
There will be a replay Monday at 4 p.m. on BTN (the actual TV channel).
check with your cable provider. Mine does not offer BTN, but does allow access (for free) through the cable company's website.
Looks like MGoBlue.com will be streaming it for free.
Why do you say this? I'm looking at it and it's listed as a premium link so I'm pretty sure you have to sign up for the $9.95 monthly access to view it.
big win..2,789 to 0 Michigan..
Gibbons with 6 FGs
Michigan, 81 to -7.
Coach Beilein will find a way.
Spike Albrecht will have more successful attempts and fewer turnovers tonight than Russell Bellomy has in his current Michigan career.
That's a bold prediction!
will get a triple double.
Is there really going to be a live feed online to watch this?
put your cursor over the game on the schedule and it says "Coverage Gametracker live video". Should I count on this being exactly what it sounds like?
Is tonight's game on TV?
I don't believe it's on TV and I don't even see anything on BTN2go about the game, but MGoBlue.com allaccess seems to imply they'll have a live stream of it. If you are in Michigan, you can still pick up tickets for $5 though.
I think something like 98-48. We'll see the starters play some solid minutes in the first half but by the 2nd half the bench will be seeing the rest of the time out there.
Michigan gets their first 100-point game since 2007-08 against oakland.
Michigan 108 northern 67
I thought they scored 100 last time they played Northern in I believe 2009
Negative - only scored 97 against NMU in 2009.
Michigan plays a sloppy November ; I dont see 100 points
Trey Burke doesn't play.
In an effort just to be helpful, game is on BTN.com and is being done by BigTenStudentU. I didn't say on MGoBlue, so I figured I'd share that, since I'd heard some confusion.
Trey Burke for the game due to suspension for an unspecified violation of team rules, and get to see how Spike, Timmay, and even Nik Stauskus perform at the point. Should be darned interesting.
Michigan wins easily. Does anyone else find it odd that college basketball gets an exhibition game when the regular season doesn't matter so much but college football doesn't get anything when their regular season means everything. Just wondering if anyone else felt the same?
Kinda sorta. The only thing is that with football the season means everything so you don't want to risk any injuries in an exhibition. Plus you can schedule a weak school and basically get an exhibition anyway....of course sometimes that backfires.
I've wondered if the exhibition games aren't more for the benefit of the opponents. Traveling squads like Athletes in Action and small schools get some exposure. It's not hard to schedule creampuffs.with almost 350 teams in Division 1.
With Spike in I am setting the over/under at 5 oops.
Michigan wins by thirty, the game is prolonged by an hour to replace the backboards that McGary tore down
I don't like seeing anyone suspended for a game, but that is the way things are done at Michigan. When JB looks into the eyes of a parent and tells them he will help develop their sons into young men, they know he is telling the truth.
This is especially impressive when one considers that, 65 miles or so away, the two players who took part in the Wonders Hall Coverup are starting. JB is to be commended for making personal development more important than a basketball game.
On the floor, the great part about this is that Spike is going to get a chance to be "the man" at PG against a real, live opponent. This playing time should help him develop, and should help jump start his career in the Maize and Blue. The sooner he becomes a dependable substitute, the better the team is.
Not only that, but Burke's absence may force Hardaway into more of a ball handling capacity, and he needs to work toward being a reliable secondary ball handler. I am also interested to see Burke's disposition as I am assuming he is going to be on the bench. I know I am in the minority but I have my concerns regarding Burke considering the NBA flirtations and the "it is my life" tweets, etc. The suspension has done nothing to ease my concerns and I hope to see him as the number 1 cheerleader on the bench tonight.
Spike don't play with girls.
Trey Burke scores 75 points in a 75-20 blowout. /s
It's an exhibition game. As long as we get the W I don't care what the score is. I just hope there is a way to watch the game somewhere, I can't wait to see what this team can do.
According to NMU 's website:
The NMU men’s basketball team opens the 2012-13 season with an exhibition game at the University of Michigan on Thursday. Doug Lewis enters his third season as the head coach. The Wildcats finished 9-17 last season and 5-14 in the GLIAC. The game can be viewed onBTN.com | Season Preview | Michigan Game Notes
I saw a video link (like others have said) on MGoBlue.com, so i'd check there first, if not, then maybe BTN is streaming it.
Trey Burke getting suspended could actually be good for michigan, it'll be good to see how good spike does and good that his first big playing time isn't in a high pressure situation
If an exhibition game is played against a team I didn't even know existed and it is not televised and our starting PG doesn't play, does it really happen?
anything really ever happen Neo?
You didn't know NMU existed?
IS SOOOO FUNNYY!!!!!!!
Spike's dad will massage his hamstrings with evaporated milk.
N.M.U. - Not Much of a University
...Michigan 75 NMU 57.
McGary has 10+ boards. Pretty bold, I know.
Michigan wins 84-48. Spike makes the most of his opportunity and the rest of the freshman show out. I expect to see a great rebounding team and a much improved Tim Hardaway Jr.
Damn I'm good.
I'm getting like 40 calls a day asking my opinion on whether I'm for one team or the other. Then, there are the robocalls asking me to pick this or that team. And it's no longer even the varsity squads who are calling. You've got JV, intramural, a few club sports and I think the cheerleaders just called looking for money.
Worst are the TV and radio ads. Jiminy Christmas. One side slanders the other with ad hominem attacks and polemics, serving it up with a smile. The other side retaliates, naturally.
And the eleventy billion street signs. Good god. Every team on the roster has its posters and signs cluttering up my view of the landscape.
I just can't wait for this season to be over.
Wait ... Are we still talking about sports?
Any chance this will be televised?
Michigan wins because they score more points than NMU.
81 to 57, lots of new players getting quality time.
I think/hope this will air on the radio 102.9FM locally?
Will be showing the replay of this game in a few days - it is my cable guide. I think the replay is like at 3 am though - so get your DVR ready.
Michigan will win by 50. NMU is predicted to be the worst GLIAC team and Michigan is the # 5 team in the country. This sounds like a blowout waiting to happen even without Trey Burke.
Does anyone know when the banner raising is scheduled for? I assume it will be against Slippery Rock but I couldn't find anything on it.
I think they said the BIG championship banner will be raised at halftime of the Michigan vs. NC St game. Not totally sure though
believe the Fab Five lost to Athletes in Action!?
...that I will be at the game and am excited to see our top-10 team play in our top-notch new facility. Go Blue!
DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A STREAM????
any chance anybody wants to post log in info so the rest of us can watch for free? I'm a broke student who has basketball season tickets but can't make it tonight, no way in hell im paying 10 bucks to watch an exhibition game
but I doubt many people have a subscription to this service...
I'm just going to kick back and watch Ron English do his thing at EMU
Northern finds an ice rink at halftime, abandons game for pick-up hockey.
