I was worried coach used all his timeouts early. We could have settled them down and run a play.
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.
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.
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.
Is that King Lear or Hamlet?
The Tempest, actually
by a point!
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.
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
Enjoy the weather.
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
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.
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.
Your son is more grown up than a lot of us methinks.
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.
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.
I wasn't aware that rebounding alone constituted whether a team plays tough.
Also note how I didn't say we dominated on the boards.
We couldn't stop their big man, we couldn't rebound, we couldn't make clutch free throws, we couldn't make layups, and our big men couldn't stop fouling. Please, explain what you think "tough" means, because nothing I saw demonstrated toughness. Talent, yes. Toughness, hell no.
Yep that was choke job. We got crushed on the boards and if we make free throws we still would have won. We played with a lot of intensity today which I thought was missing the previous 10 games or so. I'm pissed and I wish I could solve the rebounding problem but I still feel good about the effort.
It is going to be a while before I can forget about the last minute of that game though.
I'm pretty sure half the board would commit mesageboard suicide if they lived through the back-to-back NC losses with the Fab Five. It was a great game, we got screwed by a no-call, but in the end you have to make your damn free throws. It's not glamorous, but this team is most likely by far Beilein's worst FT% team in years.
ZOMG, no doubt. Chris Webber calling the timeout would have been the complete destruction of the internet.
Don't matter anymore were full of shit. Cost us a title and instead we're the 5th place team. Disappointing season so far because we're not the 5th most talented team. But they have a week and a half to get on track because they can save or tank their season in the Tournment. Sadly the two teams playing today, PSU and Wisconsin took any chance of a little B1G Tourney redemption away with the extra game and rotten seeding. But that doesn't matter. They have to win games in the Big Dance. At least three. Hopefully if anything comes from this it'll show we need to recruit more big men and end this small forward playing the front court silliness.
And even with all that it all doesn't matter if the refs had the balls to call a flagrant foul.
I am fully prepared for the downvote into Bolivia, but here goes. We choked, plain and simple. The game was ours, and we let them have it. They didn't take it, we gave it.
