The spinning stars under the avatar pictures are a classy touch too.
My favourite line:
"We've officially gone full retard."
Excellent analysis of UT's second half...
mine is: "Lookin good guys.....that's about the 73rd time we've been backdoored." At least they also know a bad camera when they see one!
Damn this team is dumb, how many times are they going to comment the same charge?
"they like to take charges"
You went full retard, man. Never go full retard.
I like how some of them are blaming the officiating and calling Michigan a bad team. When you lose by 30 neither of these two things can be the reason.
When you lose by thirty when the other team took one free throw shot the whole game, the officiating is definitely your problem.
Yeah. I thought the same thing. UCLA shot 40+ fts yesterday, and barely beat MSU. When you lose by 30 and the opposition went 0/1 on free throws, you just suck.
"Glad this game was on truTV because this truly was reality. Aside from bad refs we had no desire, played no D, have no shooters along with a couple wannabes that don't deserve a scholarship. Tobias was the exception"
...and would add: It's not reality, it's actuality.
Bad refs? We shot one free throw.
There is no conceivable way you can bitch about the refs when the other team is awarded a grand total of one FT in the 1st half and misses. I've never seen a game where one team did not earn at least one point off of free throws.
I never seen a fan base hate one player so much. Of course I'm talking about Tatum.
He did play the most uninspired tournament basketball I've ever seen out of one player.
I like the comment from the guy lamenting that the Vols were losing to an average Big Ten team, as if the SEC is some kind of powerhouse in basketball.
Yep, the Big 10 is so bad they sent 7 of 11 teams into the tournament. SEC is a true power house though.
They're such a powerhouse that they'll probably have 2 teams in the round of 32. Maybe 3, but I doubt it.
The Big Ten is easily the second best basketball conference. The SEC is probably fifth or sixth.
Not one person saying "Wow, Michigan is a lot better than I thought" or "I guess Michigan is a pretty good team." Even some people had the audacity to say that we're a terrible team, they're just worse, which, like, whatever. Then fine, you just got rolled up and smoked by a bad team.
Nah, we melted them, put them in brownies, then ate 'em.
One of them said that he'd never seen so many charges. This is b/c no one in the SEC plays disciplined basketball. It's just a bunch of athletes running around, which is ironic when you consider SEC football...And by "ironic" I mean "not ironic."
More disturbingly, I noticed the reference to Pearl crying "Jew tears" at halftime. Even more disturbing than that, no one called that guy out. Apparently anti-Semitism is no big deal on that board.
What does that even mean?
Jew Tears=bad, but WE can disparage the intellectually disabled and that is funny?
I saw this game the other night. Globetrotters vs the Genarals..
I spit my drink.
that was a funny read! Keep in mind those are actual dyed-in-the-wool fans of a team. I pray we never have to support a Michigan team that causes us to write things like that; sucks to be them.
I LOL'd. Then I thought about all of the threads during/after the Gator Bowl. :(
Then I thought about winning an NCAA tournament game by 30 :)
Than this abortion of a thread:
is an idiot.
I like the guy who said UM got away with the worst violations in history. For some reason, I have a sense that person does not read or watch television at all.
"Watch C Brian Williams for the Vols. This is what we want Nix to be like as a senior."
Oh boy, I hope so!
In response to BigHouse_00 saying he had MSU in the Sweet 16 and ruining his bracket, some guy responds:
"Well you're an idiot savant if you had MSU winning two games. Unless you're an alum or big MSU fan why on Earth would you?"
Sounds like someone needs to be informed of what the phrase "idiot savant" means.
...at the "Jew tears" reference.
I was just about too post that. Talk about offensive! I guess i'll just have to chalk that up as rednecks just being rednecks apparently?
"Cause Bruce spent his time telling everyone bye and crying Jew tears".
Yeah, that is uncalled for regardless of the situation. I'm sure people dinged the poster for it, but that still is pretty bad.
I would like to formally thank MOST people on this board. This link makes you appreciate intelligent rational thought, and honest objective critiques of a team. So thank you to the non-trolls on the board your opinions (whether or not I agree) have been shown in such a better light after reading this board.
Perfect example, look back to the Bowl game this year, yes we were all upset, but I don't think I saw anything resembling the bashing of individual players.
ummm... Stevie Brown(before becoming a LB) disagrees...
and so does Boubacar "Toast" Cissoko.
It's fun when it happens to someone else, but we shouldn't get all self-righteous.
as their competition, and the entire conversation was, "Dang, sucks that we drew Duke," and "At least we get to play Duke."
Whoah. Easy, my little orange friends.
along with a bunch of them calling this game an "easy win"... well as it turns out they were right, it did appear to be an easy win.
"We've officially gone full retard" - govols120
They no nothing about basketball accept that their team sucks. Blaming the refs, bashing an individual player non stop, and talking about firing Bruce pearl every other comment. And instead of giving us props, they we suck, makes me laugh.
accept that he should have nown that it wasn't working.
Please tell me you dont go to Michigan
Replace Tatum with Smith and Pearl with Rodriguez and you would swear you are reading a Gator Bowl thread here on MgoBlog.
I honestly don't remember a thing from that game. Merciful, I guess.
This one made my day. It was during the first half.
"It's amazing a team with as little talent as Michigan is an at large NCAA Tournament team."
I stand corrected:
"Is it just me or does it seem like we are so much better than Michigan?"
By the way...the first half comments I think our just as good as the second half comments.
"They like to take charges"
Wow, UT has reached the bottom. No where to go but up. What an embarassment!
They actually proved the bottom was deeper than that.
That was my personal favorite, posted just a few minutes after the end.
