I agree that the no-call on the Irvin shot was good. But the officiating before that was bad. What did you think of the no-call on the Walton drive just before that? Clearly Walton was hammered. There were so many bad calls against Michigan that it boggles the mind. The better team lost tonight because of the officiating, in my humble opinion. If I'm right, this will be borne out as the season progresses. Michigan is definitely better than Nova....

Really bad officiating was the difference in this one, IMO. With good officiating, M wins by 10.
Typical was the call against Irvin late in the game. The replay showed that the Nova player (Pinkston, I think) fouled Irvin. But the violation worked to Nova's advantage. Then Walton drove to the hoop to clinch the game for Michigan and was clobbered. No call.
These calls, and many earlier in the game, were the difference.
So the good news is that Michigan is good, and getting better.

It was useful for Irvin and Morgan to get more crunch time action, and good to see Bielfeldt get some meaningful playing time. Assuming Robinson and Stauskus recover, it will be to our benefit in the long run.
The officiating was a bit wierd IMO. How many games will M play where they have 4 players in serious foul trouble before halftime. I don't think M is a team that fouls a lot. The officials were whistle happy. Add that to extremely cold shooting (from a good shooting team) and a couple of injuries, and you're looking at an entertaining game, and one that was probably better than a 30 point blowout against the Little Sisters of Podunk...

He didn't play at all in 2nd half, and was wearing a jacket indicating that he was out for the duration...

That was fun to watch, as stephenrjking said above. The best part was Hoke on the sideline not changing expression after every good thing that Michigan did. He was focused, and it seemed to rub off on the team down the stretch.
I feel bad for Northwestern as every break seemed to go Michigan's way. But it was a classic college football game...
