Any chance they could turn in Alabama boosters too?
Meh. Who am I kidding? Any recordings or paper trails would "magically" end up missing.

Ugly win. But I guess that was expected. I'm thinking Purdue at Crisler is a toss up. At Northwestern is probably a loss.
At Nebraska? Probably another toss up. They're bad. But they're at home and Michigan is the only B1G team they have never beaten since they joined the conference, so they'll be very motivated. Plus, us playing on the road = eye cancer.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Remember that double overtime||
Remember that double overtime disaster last time we played at Northwestern two years ago? There was about 4 different times I thought we had that win wrapped up. Then NU kept getting miracle 3 after miracle 3. Every desperation 3 they threw up went in, whether it was guarded or not. It was like NU was possessed by Wisconsin basketball.
Our God awful record on the road this year speaks for itself. I expect a game that goes down to the final seconds, again. With our luck, we'll be the one remaining team on NU's schedule where they get their act together.
|3 days 7 hours ago||And that's great. They no||
And that's great. They no longer have to wheel in the portables. But they still collect dust more often than not. And that sucks. Just schedule some damn night games, for God's sake. We've proven that the entire city of Ann Arbor won't burn down. We don't have to go through an intense screening process if there are less "quality" opponents on the home schedule. For instance, why couldn't the BYU game been a night game in 2015?
I went to last year's Wisconsin game and the stadium atmosphere was absolutely amazing despite a low scoring game where Michigan left many points on the field. Just imagine that same crowd at night, when it was originally supposed to have been played. It would have been epic.
|3 days 8 hours ago||I guess I'll be the one to||
I guess I'll be the one to ruin this topic with a wet blanket, so here it is...
This question is so, very, very moot and the evidence proves it. Stadium lights were put in before the 2011 season. In the 6 years since, we've had a total of 3 night games, while other B1G schools like Nebraska and Northwestern have roughly 3 night games PER SEASON. Last year's Wisconsin game was originally going to be a night game....until three months later when Warde Manuel said, "Nevermind." And we were never really given a good explanation as to why.
It's clear Michigan is dragging its feet in regards to night games...or they just plain don't want them. So we're kind of stuck in limbo hoping and wondering and debating who the right opponent would be for a night game, when in reality it's just not going to happen.
Just give me a night game against anyone at this point. (Except Ohio State.)

The Barn used to be a very cruel place. After the Fab Five won there in 1993, we wouldn't win there again until 2006, during the second to last year of Tommy Amaker. Granted, the program was a train wreck during that time but playing there was a lot like playing at Assembly. Many close losses to teams that were barely good themselves half the time.
Beilein has had much better success in that building but every year when we play there, we seem to be in a must win situation.

How about at least one college scene? Like maybe the Northwestern game his senior year?
I want to know who would have played me sitting in the stands watching him throw touchdown passes to David Terrell.
|1 week 1 hour ago||Death to backboards, death to||
Death to backboards, death to half court shots, death to all the flukey shit Wisconsin always pulls out of their ass when they play us. At this point, I'm convinced if they needed a game tying shot against us, they could shoot it backwards between their legs, have it ricochet off the backboard, fly back and bounce off a player's head, turn around and it would STILL land in the basket for the score. None of that crap tonight.
This game felt pretty damn good. Wagner's dunk was porn.

It's like RichRod type defense on the court when Wisconsin is in the paint.

As soon as Wisconsin is in the paint, its automatic.

Dakich is a decent announcer. Outside of that, he can be pretty nauseating.
The radio interview he did with Brian when Dave Brandon left was a real struggle to listen to. The condescending tone of his voice and his ability to constantly cut Brian off mid sentence was annoying as hell.
|1 week 4 days ago||Some random numbers for that||
Some random numbers for that bizarre game at Assembly in 2009...which I remember watching.
That really was a God awful Indiana team that would finish the season 6-25. But they were draining everything in the first half. Michigan trailed 39-22 at the break.
Michigan attempted 40 three pointers that night and made 12 of them. Players of the game were Laval Lucas-Perry with 18 points, Manny Harris with 17 and Deshawn Sims with 14. (Sims was 0-6 from three point land).
It was the second straight home game Indiana blew a 20 point lead, having also done it against Lipscomb 10 days earlier. Yet this still went to overtime. Final: Michigan 72 IU 66

Not even thinking about the tournament right now. And I don't care that Indiana is a bad team. I'm just so damn happy to win at Assembly!
Here's one middle finger for Indiana basketball. The other one goes to Tom Crean, who we have now beat 3 straight times.

That tech on DJ was such a joke. That wasn't even half of the kind of antics that Mateen Cleaves used to display when MSU played us.

Thank you for this birthday gift, Michigan basketball.
You still frustrate the hell out of me, but I really needed this tonight. Go Blue!

This has been very Ohio State like in the last 6 minutes.
Get the intensity back and don't blow this.

Haven't had to bang my head against the wall once tonight. I like that.
Please don't make me see the wall in the second half.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||In the darkest days of Brian||
In the darkest days of Brian Ellerbe, Mateen Cleeves made those expressions about 30 times every time MSU played us. Never saw him get a tech for those.
These refs are morons.

Thank you. Really sick of the wall during basketball games.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||*sigh* Today's my birthday.||
Today's my birthday. I'm hoping the team will make me bang my head against the wall far fewer times than that last game.
Just give me this game, please.

That Brady guy is pretty good, right?

Can't even get anything set up inside the arc. Nothing. All we do is circle around and around and around until there's 2 seconds left on the shot clock and shoot a 3 out of desperation.

I suspected we were going to the NIT regardless of what happened tonight but I'm still pissed. And I'm not going to point to throwing out the records because this is a rivalry game.
This is not the first time a crappy ass, NIT at best bound team has had all their problems fixed by playing Michigan. This is a continuing factor that seems endless.
I like Beilein as a person but no longer as a coach. This is his 10th year here. I'm sick of the shit performances against shit teams.

Figured we were going to the NIT regardless of what happened tonight but this still sucks ass.
