Have at it.

I'm sick. Won't be posting for good while.

Fuck this shit. Make a free throw.

Can we stop acting as soft as this team plays? Blaming the refs is soft. What's to say we don't miss both FTs and then turn the ball over? We had plenty of chances to win this game if we could either (a) hit a free throw, or (b) get a damned rebound. We did neither when it mattered. That's not the refs fault.

The Indiana player is flopping without Burke being close to him.

Seriously we all know why this happened.

1) Poor interior defense.

2) Missed Free Throws

Still a good showing by such a young team.

Well, if you miss a bunch of 1-and-1's, you'll give the team a chance.  A tough loss, but the team still has a chance to have a good run.

This hurt.
  1. Intentional foul, please?  
  2. Foul on Burke's drive to the basket (possible, but not too upset they didn't call it - like they didn't call against Burke vs. OSU's Craft). 
  3. Morgan, Morgan, too many bunnies missed, none more than the last tip-in - which wasn't too easy, but still.
  4. Defensive rebounding, the real reason we lost.
  5. FTs down the stretch.

ANYONE of these goes our way, we win.  But we lost.  This hurt, but I'm OK.  Fucking glad I have a team like Michigan to cheer for.  If you didn't enjoy this game, then you shouldn't be watching sports at all.

This team can't play defense for 40 minutes. They can't rebound because they don't box out. They let Burke do too much hero-ball. That is a recipe for getting upset in the tournament.

It takes toughness to rebound, make clutch free throws and over come foul trouble. This team doesn't have toughness. They didn't deserve to win, they didn't earn it.

They made some clutch shots to stay in it when Indiana went all Zeller-palooza.  No getting around it, our size doesn't quite match up.  With foul trouble, I have to think so many substitutions on our Bigs has to throw off the rhythm.  No excuses, the game was ours for the taking. Young team, will learn, etc.

Wish they would have called the intentional on Watford, obviously. But yeah, make your free throws and the game is over. I'm just hoping this isn't the emotional backbreaker that essentially kills the teams remaining focus.

I'm whatever. We experience joy (the whole start of the season). Then heartbreak (Ohio State first time). Then joy again (Ohio State second time). Then heartbreak (Michigan State first time, Wisconsin, Penn State). Then joy (Michigan State and Ohio State second time). Then heartbreak (This.).

It hurts because this was for a title and we had it locked down but it's one we could have won many games ago. Hope we do great in the Big Ten and NCAA tournaments

I lose 5 years of life with every game I watch. Its like a wild roller coaster with the up and down emotions. Hit the damn free throws and win a title.

We brought this on ourselves.  Total choke, not helped by the fact we pissed away our timeouts.  That last possession was every awful Burke countdown possession and Morgan hilariously botched putback rolled into one total, epic fail.

The intentional foul call wasn't the problem, getting outrebouded by about 30 was the goddamn problem. A women's HS team would scrap harder on the boards. Screw this
