1) I’m going to need a citation on the claim that I ever used the specific insult of “heartless” to describe the team ever. My criticisms earlier in the year when the team was scuffling always pertained to coaching (i.e. end of game situations), preparation (i.e. free throw shooting and game plans), and execution (i.e. inefficient players playing hero ball).

2) If you don’t think that game rivals the humiliation Notre Dame suffered when they were killed by Alabama after people doubted that they deserved to be in the title game, then I don’t know what to tell you.

3) I never said the team had to make up for anything. I was referring specifically to the OP rationalizing away the loss immediately following the game by presenting a false choice argument between cheating and winning. But nice reading comprehension.

4) So I guess either you have no problem with the way the team played in one of the worse title game blowouts in the past 3 decades or you can’t take solace in previous accomplishments. Extrapolating from one small comment immediately following the game pertaining 100% to a claim about how Beilein’s reputation should make up for times the team doesn’t succeed to assert that I think the season was a failure is bs.

4) Michigan didn’t need a perfect game to stay close or even win. Shoot their average from 3 and don’t allow 12 offensive rebounds in a year where defensive rebounding was a strength, and they, worst case scenario, lose by a possession or two.

5) If you think Michigan’s poor shooting for much of the year, including most of the tournament, has anything to do with “randomness,” then I don’t know what to tell you.

04/03/2018 - 12:34am “Sure we got

“Sure we got killed/humiliated on the national stage because they went 3-23 from 3 and collapsed on both sides of the ball, but at least we don’t cheat” has to be the dumbest take. Villanova doesn’t cheat, either. How that’s supposed to make up for what just happened, I’ll never know.

04/02/2018 - 11:16pm Unbelievable collapse when

Unbelievable collapse when the lights were the brightest. Do they not practice shooting at all?

04/02/2018 - 11:11pm This has the makings of the

This has the makings of the biggest national title game blowout since...Duke beat the Fab Five by 20 in 1992.

04/02/2018 - 11:06pm Considering how Michigan got

Considering how Michigan got to the title game, this egg of a performance is really going to allow everyone to say that this was a fraudulent Final 4 run. What a national embarrassment. Did they just stop practicing shooting during the tournament?

04/02/2018 - 11:04pm Why is our offense now

Why is our offense now Matthews iso stuff? How does that make any sense, especially considering he has reverted to his past stuff.

04/02/2018 - 11:02pm Matthews dribbles dribbles

Matthews dribbles dribbles dribbles and Z takes a 3. Wha the fuck?

04/02/2018 - 10:58pm People turning off the tv,

People turning off the tv, that’s what.

04/02/2018 - 10:56pm What happened to our

What happened to our defensive rebounding? This has to be one of the team’s worst d rebounding games under Beilein, which is saying something. Absolute momentum killer. Haven’t been able to get a stop after a bucket since like the 11 minute mark of the first half.

04/02/2018 - 10:51pm Michigan hitting 2-15 from 3

Michigan hitting 2-15 from 3 and like 10 consecutive misses has nothing to do with Villanova.

04/02/2018 - 10:49pm Shooting better than 2-14

Shooting better than 2-14 from 3 is not catching lightning in a bottle. Not close.

04/02/2018 - 10:44pm When’s the last time the team

When’s the last time the team got a stop after a bucket? Fees like forever. Can’t rebound, either.

04/02/2018 - 10:38pm And now our defense collapses

And now our defense collapses and we’re being embarrassed on national tv. Couldn’t box out. Leaves guy open from 3. And then whatever the fuck that was. It’s over.

04/02/2018 - 10:33pm On mobile and can’t embed.

On mobile and can’t embed. Clearly a goaltend. I hate officials. https://twitter.com/barstooluofm/status/980991823597506560?s=21

04/02/2018 - 10:25pm He wasn’t saying that

He wasn’t saying that Michigan has never had a scoring no threat from PG since Burke. He’s says no we don’t now.

04/02/2018 - 10:17pm Wagner hasn’t scored in 11

Wagner hasn’t scored in 11 minutes. 15% from 3. Villanova ended the final 11 minutes on a 21-7 run after we had a 5 point lead. Utter collapse on the offensive end and getting killed by one player on the other. Offense felt like it wasn’t even on the court for the second 10 minutes.

04/02/2018 - 10:10pm Absolutely collapsed.

Absolutely collapsed.

04/02/2018 - 10:06pm Offense disappeared. Taking

Offense disappeared. Taking too many shots early in the shot clock. Haven’t been able to string together a make and a stop together in a while. Way too forced. Once again, failing to come even close to hitting our average from 3 is killing us.

03/31/2018 - 7:48pm Got within 3 and

Got within 3 and self-destructed. Two chucks and an awful turnover.

03/31/2018 - 7:46pm MAAR needs to be benched.

MAAR needs to be benched. Like 0-10 and he keeps chucking early in the shot clock. Momentum killer when we had the ball down by a possession.

03/31/2018 - 7:38pm Based on how the defense has

Based on how the defense has played over the last 20 minutes, maybe Yaklich won’t get a head coaching job this offseason.

03/31/2018 - 7:28pm Finally get something going

Finally get something going on offense and the defense collapses. They’re running circles on them. And Simpson looks like he did in November. What an ugly last possession.

03/31/2018 - 7:04pm All players not named Wagner,

All players not named Wagner, Matthews, and Teske need to get their heads out of their asses because they have a combined 0 points,

03/31/2018 - 7:00pm What an awful half of

What an awful half of basketball. Moe has a double double and they’re losing by 7. Can’t make a shot to save their life. They better get their head right at half or this one will be done early.

03/31/2018 - 6:48pm 6 years later, same shit.

6 years later, same shit.

03/24/2018 - 11:03pm Michigan’s lone weakness is

Michigan’s lone weakness is free throws. Many times this year, they just can’t hit them when it counts. Huge missed by our senior leader.

03/24/2018 - 10:59pm Damn. Just like that, 5

Damn. Just like that, 5 points with only 30 seconds off the clock. Not good.

03/24/2018 - 10:58pm It’s gonna be a loooooooong 2

It’s gonna be a loooooooong 2 minutes.

03/24/2018 - 10:46pm Robbed us of 4-5 points.

Robbed us of 4-5 points.

03/24/2018 - 10:45pm This is such bullshit.

This is such bullshit. Another goaltend missed.

03/24/2018 - 10:44pm THEY SAID THAT THAT WASN’T

THEY SAID THAT THAT WASN’T EVEN A SHOOTING FOUL?!?

03/24/2018 - 10:41pm Srsly, did they call that a

Srsly, did they call that a goaltend? Sure looked like ball hit backboard first.

03/24/2018 - 9:50pm Geez...if they could just get

Geez...if they could just get the 3-ball to fall, we’ll be fine. Seems like a big if, though.

03/24/2018 - 9:27pm Sloppy. Hurried. They need to

Sloppy. Hurried. They need to calm down.

03/24/2018 - 9:18pm Zavier got slapped in the

Zavier got slapped in the face against State and nothing was called. But for that! Bullshit!

03/20/2018 - 12:25pm “All or Nothing”

For last

“All or Nothing”

For last season, I’m guessing they mean the latter.

03/18/2018 - 6:04pm Ward had 10 points on 80

Ward had 10 points on 80 percent shooting, had 5 rebounds, only fouled twice, and yet he played only 16 minutes. Some weird guy named Ben Carter who hadn’t scored since January 19 played 23 minutes and scored two points. Izzo, what u doin’?

03/18/2018 - 1:20am So I guess we now have a

So I guess we now have a visual of the ending of that scrimmage they had a week before the tourney.

03/18/2018 - 12:14am What a terrible game.

What a terrible game. Pathetic. What a pathetic game. Good lord. Open shots missed. Multiple wasted possessions by the offense. And we just lost to this fucking team. What a wasted opportunity to do something special.

03/18/2018 - 12:12am That play by Simpson hasn't

That play by Simpson hasn't worked all game. Why try it again in such a crucial part of the game?

How is this a question? A Houston player fell with it OOB. What was the original call?

03/18/2018 - 12:10am Terrible hero ball by MAAR.

Terrible hero ball by MAAR. Not our offense at all. And now they're downtrodden with time left. 

03/18/2018 - 12:09am What a garbage foul by

What a garbage foul by Livers. After a terrible possession. Terrible.

03/18/2018 - 12:07am Need a bucket here. With how

Need a bucket here. With how good Houston is on iso situations, especially Gray, we need more than just a 1 point lead.

03/18/2018 - 12:06am For a second there I thought

For a second there I thought they called an offensive foul on Wagner and almost lost my mind.

03/17/2018 - 11:54pm Clutch FTs from Teske.

Clutch FTs from Teske.
