It seems the starter's play the same most of the time, the only time we have a good game is when we get some help off the bench. If you remember our last two games we had some nice bench play.

I counted three offensive rebounds for the entire game, which I attribute to an annoying habit of turning around and running back to set up on D like a person fleeing a tsunami. This happened countless times: Someone puts up a shot, the entire team bails.

And, while I'm at it, there were stretches during the late first, and mid-second, halves when the team simply decided to play 0 defense. Once they turned it up - which they did beautifully with about 7 minutes left, it was just about too late.

Not to mention Manny and Morris executing perfect drives to the basket and passing up the shot so that someone could miss a wide-openn 3.

And then there's - oh, never mind.

What the hell happened? These are college basketball players and we've missed at least five wide open threes and a painful number of bunnies from within five feet of the basket. I have no idea what causes that. You can't blame Beilein for it... they're getting open looks, they just cannot convert for the life of them.

Manny misses free throw. I am about to punch myself in the face. This is just. . .FUCK. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but good god, this team has had a disappointing season. Doing less with more than I can remember in recent memory. It isn't like we had guys suspended for half the year or debilitating injuries this season. Jesus.

ugh, we lose at home to a team that is 1-12 in conference even after they fail to score for 7 minutes late in the second half ... on junior day.

Oh fuck me. Baseball just lost to Texas Tech (a team picked to finish next to last in the Big12) to make matters even more awesome. Now I know why crazy girls cut themselves. Somebody wake me up in September.
