What's irresponsible was Hoke leaving an immobile quarterback in there to get drilled. Morris was clearly injured (there is a difference between hurt and injured, and Morris was clearly the latter), and it seemed almost inevitable that he would get hit hard because he couldn't move quickly enough to avoid contact. Once that hit happened and Morris was injured even more, he should never have been an option for the rest of the game. Leaving him out there and then putting him back in is coaching malpractice.
I've never been one to care about this before, but if Hoke had a headset, maybe someone could have educated him about Morris's problems. Throw on top of that Bellomy not even being ready to go into the game if he had to, and the picture being painted is one of a bad coach who can't respond to new information in a game and whose team isn't prepared well enough on a weekly basis.

More of this. I was texting a friend like crazy about how bad the reffing was. There was one play that just made me think "Big Dance call," only called to build the drama as things are getting close. My heart almost gave out when they reviewed the inbounds pass that Tennessee tipped and Stauskas didn't even touch. I was ready for them to blow a second OOB call.
With all that said, we're advancing to the Elite 8 (Hail!) but those refs should be done for the tournament.

Having been to a game using GA, it would mean that the students would likely get a general ticket with no seating assignment and then they would show up to a special ticketing window/area to get their seating assignment on gameday.
My brother went to MSU while I was at UM, and they used to have two student sections. The general section and the "Corner Blitz." Corner Blitz students had generic tickets for which they paid more, and it entitled them to a seat lower in the bowl portion of the student section that went about halfway up the student section. They also had special shirts and would get small items at games to encourage more cheering (e.g. towels or other items). They abandoned the Corner Blitz by the 2007 season, but it was in place in 2005 when I went to the game in EL.

All four #2 seeds have made the Sweet Sixteen exactly once over the past 15 years. You might want to rethink this.

We lost because we don't have this:

If you can wait until the end of the season, they will drop to $14.

It's nice to have length on that 1-3-1 zone!

And there's the makeup call.

Because Richardson was out of control, it's a foul...

Trey doing his best Craft impression. Love it!
|3 years 1 week ago||Also, it's hard to be clean||
Also, it's hard to be clean when there are two different standards for what a foul is depending on the half.
|3 years 1 week ago||With that call,||
With that call on GRIII, the refs have lost my respect.
|3 years 1 week ago||Guess BTN didn't get the memo||
Guess BTN didn't get the memo. I thought the 1993 Final Four never happened.
|3 years 1 week ago||I agree.||
I agree. The first possession that they introduced it, the Illini threw the ball away because of the change in pressure.
|3 years 1 week ago||Are you sure||
Are you sure that we're being out rebounded? The %'s are probably very close. In terms of sheer numbers, we have more boards.
|3 years 1 week ago||I'll take the lead||
I'll take the lead, but I've been yelling "NOOOOO, TTTTRRREEEEEYYYYY!" a bit too much with some of that shot selection.

Freshmen are carrying us right now. We just need to finish this half out, and then I look forward to Beilein halftime adjustments and Trey/Tim getting back into this game (although they both are Ding up pretty well).

Does Griffey always have to play well against us?
|3 years 1 week ago||Not to mention||
Not to mention they only happen to him at a 40%. He still hits a respectable 60% of his shots, even if he does miss some good opportunities.
|3 years 1 week ago||Weak hand check call.||
Weak hand check call. You'd be laughed off most courts for calling that.
|3 years 1 week ago||Nice find||
Nice find by Robinson! Canadian Assassin!
|3 years 1 week ago||Illinois has done a good job||
Illinois has done a good job keeping UM out on the perimeter offensively, but I think our guys will start to see the openings. Burke's pass to McGary is a nice start.

I almost threw my laptop because of that trick and then I saw the color of the that jersey. GO BLUE!!! Good luck Derrick!
|3 years 5 weeks ago||I was at that Red Sox||
I was at that Red Sox game against the Orioles and stayed the whole time. Chris Davis could actually be a decent reliever. He hit 92/93 mph on the gun on his fastballs and had a legitimate changeup to strike people out with.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Yeah, he doesn't get||
Yeah, he doesn't get that less can be more. The last time I've beeen this annoyed with an announcer is when Dave O'Brien did the World Cup.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Is it just me||
Is it just me or is Bruce Pearl making anyone else watch this on mute?
|3 years 18 weeks ago||It's not just the stat line||
It's not just the stat line that's impressive. Did you see the trajectory on Smith's passes, especially the deep balls? It was a beautiful display. Holgo may be responsible for a great offense, but a scheme is not responsible for 45-51.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Thanks for a relevant and informative post||
Thanks for a relevant and informative post during the offseason. I like some of the OT stuff that's on the boards, but this blog is about Michigan sports and seeing something like this - given some of the stuff on the board - is refreshing.
Also, great seasons from all these Wolverines! Go Blue!
