I thank Beilein for everything he's done here, but I'm ready for a change. Without Bacari Alexander to give speeches, this team has absolutely no fire. Beilein is a shitty motivator. Also a pathetic home atmosphere because they play a brand of basketball that is boring to watch.

wait, Dakich just said on air that, according to his son, there is a four minute video explaining the ohio state game conspiracy. Anyone know what he's referring to?

The hail mary pass never works in basketball when they're guarding the inbounds pass.

1 second wasn't enough time...but I always believe you want to get the ball in and get something going to the rim. Get the ball up and get a look at the basketball.

Half court and 3/4 court shots are far from impossible. They're not probable. But it's better than trying to complete some lob in a sport where you have to get the ball off before the clock hits 0.00 and the clock starts as soon as someone touches the ball.

You're never going to get a completion and a good look. Either someone tips it or they force you into the most awkward catch that you don't have a good look.

A catch and turnaround from just inside half court is a much tougher shot than a runner facing the rim from beyond half court.

Not sure Texas isn't going to count as a good win this year but it would still be good to win.

And Michigan's basketball fans are pathetic, have been for a while now, honestly think the stadium averaged about 60% full the year we went to the final four.

This is not true. The crowds were incredible in 2012-2013 and 2013-2014. Even into the first bad year in 2014-2015. 

 

I was a student then and you had to get there an hour early to even get into the lower bowl for games like Northwestern. For games like Indiana, it was HOURSSSS to wait. And it was always full. 

 

The last two terrible years, combined with football's resurgence has tanked the program. One bad year it could've been okay, but now we've had two brutal years in a row and this one isn't looking great either. Product needs to be better.

The 9-0 run here hopefully keeps up for a bit longer - would be nice to pad this a bit going into the latter end of the 1st half.

Also, Dakich needs to get back on that court and get more information about the video mentioned in passing. We need links or a name or something.
