Michigan - Illinois Open Thread

Submitted by goblueram on March 11th, 2011 at 1:39 PM

OSU-NW winding down in a tight game, they just showed the Michigan faithful in the arena.  

Let's fucking Go Blue! 

edit: looks like M-Wolverine and I made the same thread simultaneously 

-OSU beats NW in overtime.  Michigan-Illinois now scheduled for a 2:38 tip.

Melodrama much?

Worst case scenario, this team falls out of the NCAA and likely gets a 1 seed in the NIT, which is still far better then what the reasonable outcome for this team was.

Disappointing effort sure, but let's back away from the ledge.

Wow...we are playing terrible.  Smot has no clue, Hardaway's head is down, Morris is dribbling too much and no one can shoot.  We should be down by 30.

You made it seem like he meant to foul... It was pretty obvious he didn't when he isn't even facing the person he fouled.  He fell over trying to get the ball and they just got tangled up.


The real problem was the other 4 guys on the floor with Morris.  None of them were moving and trying to create an opening and Morris was waiting for someone to at least set a screen, which didn't happen.  Should've called a timeout but I don't think JB thought his team would just stand still...

fire up the players and get them playing the right type of ball. No rotation on D. Lack of movement on offense. Also I don't know if anyone else sees this, their offense is very different from the last couple of games.  looks like their trying to isolate dmo and timmy jr but its not working because the bigs are rotating to help. Someone needs to step up and get this team together.

We need to get some points in the paint, our offense is completely stale


edit: our defense also looks horrible.  Lets turn it around in the 2nd half

By reading this thread I thought the game was over, we're being as pathetic as our team. This is just like last time we played and we could've won that, here's to a little heart!

we look like a true fresman team its bad we cant shoot we cant play defense its not good i hope they wake up at half and come out and play alot harder.  another note i just switched from a loger to natty light this isnt good !

Just got back from my T-45 ride (it's a jet, WINNING) and noticed this score. Seriously?! This is awful. Also I hate the Big Ten logo sooo much

douglass needs less minutes.  He stagnates the offense without an ability to drive and score.  I know he is tasked with guarding mccamey, but we need to roll the dice on this, maybe go to the zone in the second half.  Secondly, the offense needs to be ran through Hardaway.  Last but not least stop panicking.  The game is far from over.  Illinois' shooting will come back to earth.
