Game 9: Michigan at Northwestern Open Thread


#383

lucky ducky jeeez


#384

I think all I will remember that Simpson and Matthews did today was jump at pump fakes


#385

We needed a game like this for the future.


#386

This game never happened beat USC


#387

Guys, in the end Poole’s D messed up their 1st option so they had to hoist a prayer. Defense wins!!


#388

Happy to have plenty of material for the next 4 games.


#389

I knew it the whole time! In all reality, that’s the best type of win for this team. PLENTY for the coaches to work with now.


#390

I have no clue how Beilein is in such a great mood right now haha


#391

Don’t burn the tape. Regardless of how these upcoming games go, they are gonna have some hard practices through the end of the month.


#392

God bless John Beilein. Only he would take this post game interview with a huge smile on his face and say “does it get any better than that?” about the Big Ten games being played so early


#393

Guessing that he saw this kind of game coming.


#394

Can you imagine a red-faced Tom Izzo blaming his team’s performance on how stupid it is that they have to play conference opponents in the first week of December instead of Middle Tennessee State


#395

Ya’ll know he won, right?


#396

HAHA–yep!


#397

Tend to agree. Way preseason (pre-Spain) I had figured on 3 total losses in NonCon Play with 1.5 of them coming from Nova+UNC. Then one completely inexplicable loss as that’s happened before. The fact we’re undefeated right now is a genuine surprise to like… July me.


#398

Win on the road and people are perplexed the coach is happy?!?! Hilarious

F’ing -2 second half line was a sieve


#401

#402

Take W…Go home!
