Unverified Voracity Takes It Well

Just one MGoUser's humble suggestion for the title of the recap today. At the 8:57 mark of the game, after the officials went over to the coaches to explain the foul call on Payne, Izzo looks over at Beilein and drops a "F*** you".

John Beilein is officially in Tom Izzo's head.

Right before he says it, you can see him say to the refs, while looking over at Beilein, "Yeah, I know but He's b*tching at you guys, he's b*itching at you guys". Followed by saying F U toward the Michigan bench. Pretty funny when you're in someone's head to the point where they're complaining about your complaining.

Not an expert of course, but it doesn't look like he's saying "fuck you" to me, and just from his mannerisms and all that, it's not a guy angrily shouting expletives. Even if he did say it, I'd say the OP is really making a mountain out of a molehill, especially considering what Morris said (not saying I mind at all) or all of Jalen's time at Michigan. It's big-time competitive sports with lots of machismo. I got negbanged, and rightfully so after I thought about it, a few years ago when I posted some article criticizing Harbaugh for talking trash about USC with tons of swearing in the locker room after his Stanford team beat them.

I'm not saying "OMGGGG Izzzo used the swears at are precious Beilein...suspend [email protected]!!" I'm just saying it's funny when you've got Izzo, who is a notorious complainer and spends half the game on the court in the refs' ears, complaining to the refs about Beilein's attempt to to get a few free throws out of the LeVert/Payne call. I know arguing calls has benefits (see the obvious make-up call for Michigan after the Morgan charge), but at some point it seems better to just focus on your team.

Izzo was thoroughly outcoached that game and I think Beilein winning like this is driving him crazy and leaving him extremely frustrated.

In my opinion, there shouldn't have been a fine.  The refs just should have awarded the Ravens a TD.  If an opposing coach is somewhere he shouldn't be, and there is even the slightest chance that it prevented the opponent from scoring, then the opponent should be awarded the benefit of the doubt.

Save fines for stuff like Sal Alosi did, that's actually dangerous to other players and that isn't covered by existing rules.

I would've been okay with awarding the Ravens the TD.  Absent that, I just didn't think the fine the NFL handed down to the Steelers was enough to deter any coach from trying that crap in the future.  Isn't that at least part of the point of these punishments?

I was waiting for someone to bring that up.  


While were on the Izzo is a turd train, do you ever notice that in the last 2 minutes of a close game, Izzo is waaaay more focused being on the court crying to the refs than actually coaching his team.  I get that coaches naturally get after refs, but you would think by the time the last 2 minutes come, the coach would want to allocate his time to coaching the team.

We could always look at this from a strategic standpoint and say that Izzo is simply showing us that coaches can be highly valuable on help defense, but then the question becomes this - do you just take the technical in exchange to trying to prevent your opponent from getting inside or would the refs insist that he at least write a number on the back of his suit jacket?
