This Indiana team snarfed us in Indiana earlier this season, so this was a chance to make it right. Congratulations to senior Jordan Morgan on “Senior Night.” Great career out of Detroit, Michigan. Indiana jumped out early behind some Crane-bull shit. Tom Crane is a whiny Dwight-looking snarf, though, and our coach caught up in th [...]
Congratulations, you earned it. Those road wins in the Big Ten weren’t easy, nor were any games in the best conference on earth.
Damn, them Gophers dug deep. They are on the bubble and they played like it, coming within two at Crisler before Michigan pulled away for good.
I picked this game up down six, three minutes to play. TIME TO GO TO WORK. Michigan got two steals and closed the game tied, forcing OT. Purdue led at home by one and headed to the free throw line, where they were perfect. The guy shooting was 85% – I told him (with under ten second left, BTW) he had to miss. He did. Our coach called ti [...]
The Spartans stormed ahead early behind a flurry of 3′s, but Michigan stayed in it and hit a triple of their own to bring it within two at halftime. We came out bustin’ in the second half, and our coach really corralled the referees away from Izzo’s corner. I have loved MSU my whole life, and my dad is a very classy Spartan. [...]
Michigan 70, Ohio State 60 F. The Buckeyes led early, going up by double-digits, but couldn’t push the lead any further. Michigan battled back to close the half down four. Again, the Buckeyes stormed out. Michigan sustained much earlier this time, though, keeping it close until they could take the lead with just over 10 minutes left. Th [...]
Sure this has been said but OSU radio said immediately after the incident that Smart told the OSU coaches that the fan said THE word — Ryan Aber (@ryaber) February 9, 2014 Radio analyst John Holcomb confirms what he said on air: He heard Marcus Smart say the fan called him the n-word. — Kelly Hines (@KellyHinesTW) February 9, 201 [...]
And that’s what happens on the road in Indiana sometimes.
It was a battle as usual in the Big Ten. Michigan luckily was at home and shooting well. The Wolverines held an early 16-6 edge, but Purdue took the lead back at 19-18. Derrick Walton Jr. drove and scored as the clock expired on the first half, putting U of M up 37-29. Purdue hadn’t made a single three. The Wolverines rolled out of half [...]
Michigan started hot, leading 10-2 out of the gate. Then, hack-a-Wolverine started. Blame MSU, sure, but WTF, refs? Can’t blow the whistle? I have never been so worked up by a sporting event ever, and I freak out on the regular. They were all over us. Everywhere you moved, foul. That is not basketball. That is the worst form of it that [...]
Nik Stauskus helped close out another win for Michigan. This one came at home against ranked Iowa, who suffered their second loss of the Big Ten season. Michigan used a raucous home crowd to provide some cushion – but before anyone gets comfortable, it’s Michigan State on Saturday.
We are better than them. Plain and simple. Michigan took the lead early and held onto it through a furious Wisconsin run. Michigan looked stronger, better defensively, and more athletic. It is the first win in Wisconsin since ’99 for the Wolverines. With a one-point lead, Nik Stauskas hit the shot of the night, a step-back three-pointer [...]
