PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Louisville v Wichita State now
Michigan v Syracuse after
Louisville benefiting from some sketchy calls and Russ Smith taking 4 steps to the basket with a no call. Shockers hitting a couple shots, up 8-0 early.
I thought it was just me that thought he was taking a hop, skip and a jump. No mention of it by Nance and Clark?
The media is pulling for them bc of Ware. At least that's my opinion.
Looks like UL woke up.
"Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you."
Another case of the dome?
if only wichita state shot this way in the first half against the buckeyes.....it woulda been a different story
Who guessed Wichita up @ half?
if Wichita wins gotta absolutely pray that syracuse can knock of scUM
It is impossible for Russ Smith to travel.
Man. Miss the front end twice. Results in 6 on other end. They hit all their ft's against us.
Wow, these refs are brutal against Louisville (not complaining). I think Michigan might be in trouble if these refs are this critical for their game..
Good to see the NCAA didn't improve their officiating for the final four.
Nice jump ball call #SMDH
Cannot find it within myself to root for scUM for the sake of the B10. Let's go New York.
I thought I would be able too, but I find myself hoping that Cuse will win.
Does Burke's ego get the best of him tonight?
I do not want to see him go out a winner.
I just don't like Hardaway. They play physical with him, he will fold.
Burke already trying too hard.
Unless hardaway is luck bombing 3's michigan is pretty hopeless
I hope mcgary goes pro...he is a beast
Nope he's already stated he's coming back next year.
While Ohio State's players hurdled the brick walls of Michigan Stadium in their throwback uniforms to celebrate with Buckeye fans, Michigan tailback Michael Shaw sobbed uncontrollably while walking off the field. - Grand Rapid Press (21-10 OSU)<
scUM already looks uncomfortable from the perimeter.
Not sure if anyone else saw Rose, Jackson and King talking about how the fab 5 will be in attendance when Michigan wins the championship? I really don't want to see that.
Hide your wallets.
Hide yo kids, hide yo wife..
The Fab Five should have came back to them when and when not to use time outs.
C-Webb is still taking that hard. He does not talk to many of the five often and will not talk about it.
You mean to see the one they couldn't buy, I mean win.
I don't really hold that against them. I was not sad they got caught, but all programs have skeletons.
Can't understand all the hype about whether the Fab Five will reunite, as opposed to giving some attention to a former Michigan team that actually won something at some point.
The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.
I just thought it was because jalen rose works for ESPN and they want to sell more 30 for 30 episodes of the fab 5
These jerseys are giving me seizures

Try turning down the color saturation on your TV. Helped for me.
It's tied at 14. The scUM can't be playing that badly. Syracuse is no better right now.
Cuse d is not bad, but offense needs to step it up.
Its only a matter of time before Michigan blows them out...
Please God, don't let Michigan win the National Championship.
Interesting request from a theologian. And Amen, Brother!
So scUM vs louisville
It's over. Zone is being beat consistently now.
They can't keep up this shooting.
Sure they can. Shot under 45%. Especially when you have a half dozen guys that can shoot 3s. Not odd for 2 or 3 of them to have a good night.
O V E R
So basically, the last 4 Michigan basketball teams that were worth a damn will have played for the national championship. Just lovely.
Up in Toledo, the media here love scUM. Ohio State is tolerated by them. I'll never hear the end of the scUM's next BB championship if the Wolverines beat Syracuse and Louisville on Monday. I'll have to turn off the local sports on the TV and throw the newspaper into the trash for the rest of the week, maybe the whole month.
Second half underway, lets see if TTUN can keep up the intensity and touch.
McGary just turned on beast mode.
Liked his bench mode better.
Not gonna lie, every time Syracuse is around their rim, I'm watching their cheerleaders. I give Syracuse props, they have some gorgeous looking cheerleaders.
Come on New York.
Blue has cooled off. It's going to be a war down the stretch.
Cuse can't pull a board.
And is Southerland going to show up some time before the game is over?
Honestly I'm not impressed with Cuse. And I drank the zone mystique Kool aid. Shows you how bad a coach Tom Creen is.
The Syracuse D isn't why they're going to lose. But yeah, they're below the usual quality of a Final Four team--which is why you have to take advantage of these good draws! (Still mad about last Saturday)
Yeah, Michigan did cool off in the second half and might not hit 60, but 'Cuse gave away too many possessions and couldn't get a rebound when it counted.
Louisville is gonna get a lot of scarlet and gray fans in the next 5 minutes...
Yes. Go Kentucky !
Real close, if anything maybe a no call.
Not sure what the hurry was w Trishe.
Imagine that, TSUN getting a bad call their way in a key moment.
Class of 2010.
Bottom line, if Cuse loses, it is all on them. Have to score and rebound.
absolutely. they're letting michigan get a lot of offensive rebounds. and you can't straight up blame bad officiating for the outcome, as some like to point out. it all evens itself out. should michael carter-williams' second to last foul have been called against him? no, it should have been against THJ. but michigan had about 3 easy dunk opportunities for mcgary around that time that never even got to him. 99.9% of the time they would have. and michigan missed an ungodly number of free throws. the game shouldn't have been as close as it was, but michigan's inexperience and nerves showed last night
Shoot an early 3. Avoid the foul and get a shot at a board and a kick out.
I hate my life
Ok, not really, but this stinks.
Alright, I was too young to understand the Fab 5, but I get to see a TSUN loss in the title game just like all of those years ago. Great memories!
They were easy to dislike just like this team.
Don't despair (yet). Schadenfreude will be sweeter on Monday Night.
I freaking hate them. Make your foul shots instead of pounding your chest Burke you hot dog son of a bitch.
Ehh, our fault for not taking him...
Don't criticize Matta on here. It's not allowed.
it's definitely our fault when they have 2 guys from within 15 minutes of columbus that play minutes for ttun this year.....levert from pick central plays some good d and has the ability to put the ball in the bucket the way deshaun did as a freshman......how we missed on him and got ADV i have no idea.....nothing against ADV but he will never be anything unless he puts on the weight and shoots 55%
I agree with you, so hope you weren't my downvote. Payne out of Dayton would have been nice too.
I honestly hope Scott makes you "WE WANT BURKE" people eat your words
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
I didn't say I wanted Burke, but since you opened your mouth ... They both are at the end of their sophomore seasons. You gonna do the math on this for us?
I opened my mouth? I could have sworn I was typing.
Michigan opponents: finding ways to choke this whole year
Kansas was the biggie blow.
Burke and Hardaway, 5 of 24. Hot dog assholes.
hot dog as in showboating and selfish? hardaway, yes. burke, no. hardaway had a couple decisions (the 3 on 1 breakaway where he obviously should have passed to an open mcgary for an easy dunk comes to mind) that were questionable. both struggled shooting, burke especially so. he really hasn't shot well the entire tournament (2nd half against kansas being the exception). but burke opts for the layup more often than the open dunk, and distributes the ball freely, doesn't seem selfish/showboaty in the slightest. sorry if i misinterpreted your comment.
on the surprising side, caris levert and spike albrecht each had a big chunk of michigan's points. nik stauskas had his usual zero
i'm glad we got a big10 team in the title game but that is where i stop.....i'm now on the louisville bandwagon cuz belien doesn't deserve a title more than matta does and i want matta to be the first coach since izzo to win the title
Wait, Charles disagrees with the call, but doesnt proceed to roast scUM for the next week?
But this one does not change the game??? That is a turrible opinion...
TTUN fans would rather talk tOSU failures in the past ten years than their own successes. Probably because they haven't had a lot of success.
Agreed ... That was laughable. He's probably buddies w Haradway and Big Dog.
New York couldn't do it. Go Kentucky!
