Football Display Case
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
strong indictment of AAU right heah
Glockner sides with justice
a good cause, and a good time
good job gents
Why is the big ten tourney at all important besides securing a decent berth?
stupid free throws. stupid not intentional foul.
And It's March, so most of us in the North are tired of Snowflakes. stupid snowflakes.
I hope Drake Harris was so sad that he's got it in his blood and he knows where his heart lies!
Why not defend the missed shots? Burkes bounce was so bad if we had anyone there they might have secured it.
to just dissect the last minute of the game. Easier, too.
At least have ONE guy rebounding...
"That's right. It's an off-tackle play. It's coming right over you. And there's not a thing you can do about it."
I was worried coach used all his timeouts early. We could have settled them down and run a play.
"The millions, the proud, the Wolverines"
Burke beating Oladipo and Zeller in the open floor the way he did than any set play they have run all season
You don't watch plays out of a timeout w this team. That drive was infinitely better than the stuff he does at the end of games and the last 10 minutes of this game.
But the good news is that my friends and I are already planning which Football games to attend. UTL II, vs ohio, and away at NW.
Looking ahead to football season now.
Here are kittens instead:
Did anyone realize how long the ball sat on the rim at the end? It's as if God was thinking "Hmm, who do I want to win" and the ball just sat on the rim for awhile.
Is it emotionally easier to be a .500 team that wins the postseason NIT? Sure seems like it.
because then you never expect to win, and any victory is exciting.
But we've been through that, and we all know this is much better!!!
fuckity fuck fuck
fuck,fuck, fuck, fuck
Time to move on. Hopefully the team plays pissed and steamrolls through the conference tourney.
POY should remain with Burke. If that is taken away I will have lost faith in college sports.
Penn st is going to be so pumped to play us Thursday.
If I tell you it's Easter, you better start looking for eggs.
Some folks call it a sling blade, I call it a kaiser blade.
It's a silver lining that Michigan will play a team that recently upset them. It shouldn't be too hard to find motivation for the game.
It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future. -- Yogi Berra
You're right. I was implying that PSU isn't afraid of us at all.
and this thread is countless images of Denard.gif and Kate Upton
They could have done things better, but Indiana could have done things better too. This is a time to say, "Aw hell - we could have won," not "These guys suck."
You won't be posting for a good while because they got beat by the number 2 team in the country? What a fucking wuss.
Yes I got him a gift. He had a kidney stone. You piss a rock through your pecker, you deserve more than just a pat on the fucking back.
Fucking blew a game they easily had in the bag cuz they couldnt make a fucking free throw dumb fuck fuck you bitch
Is that King Lear or Hamlet?
The Tempest, actually
by a point!
Streaming UM games early Sunday morning from Korea, since 2007
OSU and MSU ... GO DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The rest of you whiners, come on now. This game hurt a ton, but this team still lost by ONE, and we all know they could have / should have won, to the overall #1 or #2 in the country. That's not the worst thing in the world, y'all.
Because they had yet another late game collapse is the reason for frustration. I think everyone is getting tired of them snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. If this was a one-off then you can lecture about perspective all you want, but it wasn't.
Chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being sought. It always defeats order because it is better organized.
Of the games that hurt my heart and soul:
1- Weber timeout
2- loss to Duke 2 years ago in the Tournament
3- this freakin Indiana loss
Honestly we had it and lost it.. I don't blame the players, they were under too much pressure, it just happens. Lets just hope this happened at the right time, we still have a B10 tourney to try to win and a NCAA tournament out there. I'm hoping this teaches us humility and gives us a push to win both of those.
On the bright side, OSU and MSU just lost the B10 championship :).
Webber. 2 Bs. Webber
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
Enjoy the weather.
...confidence is the stain they can't wipe off...
Kinda glad I missed the last few miutes. I think I would have had an aneurysm from missed front ends on 1 and 1s and another no call intentional at the end of a game.
Tom Crean got into it twice postgame with a Michigan assistant. Wild scene here in Ann Arbor
anyone have any info on this?
Dunno, heard Crean refused to shake hands after the game though
Colors That Float
Heated ending to game. Crean and UM assistant Jeff Meyer exchanged some words during handshake line and then after.
We open with Penn State. The team that beat us for their first win of 2013... in February. It's because we lost to them the first time that today even mattered. We choked there and choked here. I'm so mad... lets just sit out the stupid conference tournament, take our seed at the dance and just go back to beating everyone who's not in the Big Ten.
"Long time listener, first time caller."
Well that sucked. Guess we gotta go win the B1G Ten tourney to get our 1 seed.
1. Refs stole game.
2. In the NCAA Tournament, they will make the free throws at the end of the game.
You think that somehow more pressure will make them less likely to choke at the line?
Refs did not steal the game. Our guards refusal to help clean up the glass lost this game.
Perspective: my 6 yr old boy said, 'They played good Dad. It was a good close game. We'll win next time.'
I watched the rim job again. So close. Now I'm in bed decompressing.
Perspective: I haz none.
your son thinks. I'm old enough to remember 1989. Illinois was sooooo good, and they beat us twice during the year. We all know how that turned out...
Yes, me too. Now I feel better. Thanks.
Yes! This is the perspective missing from a huge part of our fan base.
There are no corners in space.
Your son is more grown up than a lot of us methinks.
Here's hoping for a bright future. This team does try hard and I will continue to support them.
I feel way better now
"It's the only place to get the inside story on Wolverine football, so blee bluhh tahh!" - Bo
Tough loss to take, but UM showed me 2 things today that I really like
1. They showed an aggressiveness (as a team, not just 1 or 2 players) that I hadn't seen since we were 20-1. There was more attacking and less standing around, waiting for someone else to do something.
2. A defensive intensity that I hadn't seen on a team-wide level at all this year.
Others may disagree, but this game actually gave me more confidence for our NCAA Tournament chances.
"Slappin' the Bass" - Matt Vogrich (maybe)
This is what I came away with.
Yeah, that last minute sucked. The free throws sucked. The loss sucked. No B1G Championship. That all sucks.
But my god that was the toughest I've seen Michigan play all year. Were they perfect? No. Did they miss bunnies throughout the game? Yes. Did they get outrebounded by 20? Yes.
And after all of that we still controlled most of the game and it came down to a few free throws that our usually good shooters just missed.
CALL OFF THE SEASON, THEY'RE DONE, BOYS.
Buck up and realize that we don't all of a sudden suck because we lost by 1 to Indiana.
What are you talking about? Wer got outrebounded by 21. That's the opposite of tough.
