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.
|2 days 16 hours 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.

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.
|1 week 4 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.
|1 week 4 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.

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.

What's the all time record for offensive rebounds in a game? Is this it?

17 second chance points.
This is a shitty OSU team that is probably going to the NIT themselves. Currently 3-7 in the conference. Winless on the road.
Shouldn't we look better than this during year 10 of the head coach?

Well, we've seen this episode before. Shitty team's problems magically go away when they play us. I'm tired of reruns.

No. That was the return trip to Crisler at the end of that season. And it was glorious.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I can think of about 10 games||
I can think of about 10 games off the top of my head where we lost there by 1-2 points.
The 89 national championship team lost there by 1. The Fab Five lost there by 1. And when IU basketball was starting to decline under Bobby Knight and Michigan basketball took a nosedive to hell from Ellerbe and the sanctions, it seemed we lost there by 2 every other year. I'd wager we have more heartbreaking nail biters in that arena than anywhere else.
The quick whistles suck too. When we went there with Trey Burke a few years ago, Michigan got called for two fouls just 9 seconds into the game.
God, I hate that place.
