Michigan/Iowa B-Ball Open Thread

Tuesday nights are just not good nights for games for me...

Anyway, I am away from my tv again, and I can pick up the score on my mobile, but I come to here to get the color of the game.

So to make sure someone talks about it, here we go. (I mean, there are people still watching...aren't there...?)

What a relief. I had to listen on cbssports.com which is always annoying, but happy to get the win. I have no illusions of a magical run, but it would be nice if we could finish with big ten record above .500

which ones would you take? Sims v. msu, manny's foul v. northwestern (we were up 1), and the late turnover v. bama. Win those 3 and we are probably on the bubble similar to last year. Fuck!!!! good win though. Go Blue!

That goes to show that this year isn't really all that different from last year. Last year those things all seemed to work out, this year they don't. Obviously we didn't see the improvement we were hoping for / assuming, but I don't think they're necessarily any worse than they were last year.

I like to equate '09 UM hoops to '06 Tigers baseball. Everything fell into place when it needed too. Then you have '10 UM hoops and '07 Tigers baseball. Theoretically better teams than the previous year that just didn't have things go their way.

I just got back from the game and I'll tell you two things...

1) They were pissed. I don't believe I have ever heard a crowd boo that bad. But, they got just as many calls as we did.

2) GO BLUE!!!

I wish it didn't take extra steps to set my DVR (U-Verse) to record an extra 30 minutes. That 3-pointer to force OT was so exciting, but the realization that my recording ended in 3 minutes was so unexciting.

Pro Tip - Just schedule the DVR to record the program immediately following all live events, unless it conflicts with your scheduled recording of Golden Girls.

I have Tivo, (Old School, Loyalty) and anytime you schedule a recording of a live event it prompts you to select how much extra time.

Yeah, I should've known better - I do this sometimes (especially for football games... you'd think somebody would know how long those last, by now), but thought that I would catch up to Live and this wouldn't even be an issue.

Comcast has the same prompt for live events - that's one of the few things they have done better than U-Verse, really.

and now watching the replay. I don't think people understand how much Sims does for this team offensively. In what I believe was only the final minute of regulation he has a put back and 1, another and 1 off penetration, and arguably the clutchest three of the year to tie the game. All in ONE minute.

Gonna miss him.

Did a big snowstorm hit Iowa, or have their fans just mailed it in for the season? The crowd yesterday was the smallest I've seen for a Big Ten game outside of State College.

Lickliter has to be the worst coach in the country. No foul on the last play of the game when you're up by 3? That's why your team is garbage.
