    Go Blue!

  • Wayman Britt

    I don’t want Irvin or Walton to log more than 30 minutes tonight, let the freshman play (and Wagner) even if they make a few mistakes.

  • Wayman Britt

    How’s the crowd?

    • Timothy David

      Looks pretty empty

  • Wayman Britt

    Too bad Zak could not play against MSM every game.

  • Chezaroo

    Damn who’s this Robinson kid blowing by everybody? All 9 points

  • Chris De Sana

    How many post feeds so far today?

    • Wayman Britt

      I know, but we will never see post feeds from Beilein. He just doesn’t do it no matter the match up

      • Chris De Sana

        The game is 100 percent about match-ups

  • Chezaroo

    Same jump shooting attack as always. We’ve dropped 4 threes so far. Two by Zak

  • Chezaroo

    Wagner putting on a show! 10 straight

    • Chris De Sana

      The one thing about Wagner is he knows when he is better than the guy checking him

      • Chezaroo

        2 threes and 2 nice dribble drive finishes

  • Wayman Britt

    As long as UM is hitting threes their offense is good, if threes aren’t falling or teams over play the wings, they then struggle.

    • Chris De Sana

      One dimensional

  • Chezaroo

    Heat check missed 3 by Moe

  • Indiana_Matt

    S. Carolina beat #18 Syracuse. Gonna cheer for that team to make our loss look better all year!

  • Chezaroo

    33-16 at half. Mary’s can’t score a lick.

  • Wayman Britt

    UM defense looking good. I am concerned about Ibi, if he cannot play against this type of competition, who can he play against? Not sure he is ready for college ball.

    • Chezaroo

      To be fair he doesn’t get many opportunities. Tough for him and X to see minutes with so many upperclassmen. See if they get a little run in this half. Mary’s is not good.

  • Wayman Britt

    MAAR you are a great driver. Please do what you do best. Shooting lots of threes is not your game.

    • Tuff Enough

      I agree and been screaming at the TV when he throws them up. Beilein needs to coach up too their strengths not their weakness that they been showing.

  • Chezaroo

    Mary’s on a little run, cuts lead to 12

  • Chris De Sana

    2 point in 5 minutes to start 2nd half ugly basketball

  • Chezaroo

    Damn Spud Webb Jr. having a game at 5’5″

  • Chezaroo

    I can’t believe that block by the little guy on Walton. Damn.

  • Chris De Sana

    How can Donnal be called part of a 2 headed monster at the 5 spot? I want to see Teske.

  • Wayman Britt

    UM not a good team right now. We have to keep all our starters in, just to beat a 1-4 poor team

    • Tuff Enough

      That’s the problem 4 of the starters are soft has wet tissue paper period. No toughness in there bones and they just disappear when they play a hard nose team.

      • Shaq

        Soft. Wow

      • MAZS

        Is that basketball tuff or internet tuff?

  • Chris De Sana

    So how many big ten wins this year

    • Chezaroo

      10. The B1G blows this year.

    • Wayman Britt

      8 or 9, UM will be fighting to get into the tourney every night.

  • Steve2081

    Winthrop also has a 5’5 player. He dropped 38 on the Illini earlier in the week.

  • Wayman Britt

    Beilein is going to have to switch up the rotation, because Ibi cannot sub for Irvin. Irvin will be dead tired by March if he keeps playing so many minutes.

    • Chris De Sana

      Based on what I see right now Wilson, Donnal and maybe Robinson are all falling short of expectations. X needs more minutes as does Teske.

      And X playing the point and Walton moving to the 2 was supposed to give Irvin a blow.

  • Shaq

    Michigan will win 12 games this year. They will surprise you all

  • Shaq

    We giving up on the guys after the won a tourney that they wasn’t pick too win. SC is good

    • Chris De Sana

      If you are ok with a bubble team this team meets your expectations. If you expect Michigan to compete for a Big Championship and a National Championship well…..

      • Shaq

        We will see Sir! The bench just have to come in an contribute when there number called

  • Shaq

    On the clock: Virginia Tech

  • bobohle

    I had to miss this game. By the sounds of you guys,I should be glad I did I guess. So I can’t add any quality IMO on this game.It just seem we should be hammering these guarantee teams. What’s happened to the vaunted Beilein offense this year so far?

    • Chris De Sana

      The offense is a one trick pony meaning based solely on our ability to pass the ball around the perimeter and knocking down the 3 ball.

      It lacks a Trey, Nik or Caris who can penetrate off the bounce to create mis matches and opportunity help comes.

  • Shaq

    To all that’s downing these guys, they are going to surprise some of you this year. They will not be a bubble team that’s for sure.

    • Steve2081

      People are reading way too much into this game. These guys were tailor made to give us fits. We might have more size but we’re not built to bully teams smaller than us because those are still pretty rare and it’s just not our game.
