If you're in the Breslin, be sure to chant loud enough so we can hear you on the t.v.!

Hey Coach B you're a nice guy and all but it's time for you to get your young team prepared for fucking away games!

No toughness No Gut

I hope no one says "well this will help for March" after this game. No more of that. We've had enough lumps and lessons already. It will be a bad loss in all facets if it stays this way.

No toughness on either end, a complete inability to play defense, and zero poise.  This team is getting worse every single game, and at some point it's fair to question what Belein is doing to prepare them for these games.

It's to the point now where I just expect a loss when we play a big game.

I don't understand what Coach B. is doing this season.  HIs substitutions have been bad, the team gets blown out in the first 10 minutes of any big game, the half-court offense is stagnant, defense is pretty bad, no one besides McGary has improved during the season.  Deciding not to guard the inbound passer on that halfcourt buzzer beater has made me view him in a more negative light.  Hopefully, he pulls out some miracles like last year and my faith becomes restored (not that it would matter in any way to him or anyone else).

Too painful to watch...I feel like Ive seen this story every time Michigan plays a team with a pulse on the road.  A higher seating in the tourney might benefit this team because they sure do struggle playing the favorite role.  At least in the tourney everyone routes for the underdog.

I'm only 53 so I can't remember the early 60's and before but does anybody know if any team has ever shot below their season average against Michigan? Pretty sure that the record stands at 1094 straight games where teams shot better than normal against us but I could be wrong. The streak may be longer.

Every football team scored above their average when Rodriguez was the coach.  I think the lack of Michigan defense plays a role in the shooting averages of the opponent.  They should shoot higher when they play Michigan since Michigan's defense is worse than the average opponent.  In this game, the defense is godawful.  Luckily they're making up for it with terrible offense.

We have the talent, it seems like we are getting out coached and out played...some of that falls on the players and the rest fall on the coaches. You cant win with horrible lineups...the game is 2 halfs hopefully luck will be on our side in the second.

Team is very young. When the shot is not falling JBs offense is not pretty. Can't even hit a pass. GR3 has officially shelled up. NBA? Maybe in two years.
