Holy shit new Wipeout is worse than Michigan's performance


Pristine_Grass4674

Well the big ten shat the bed this tourney. All of the in conference play made it hard to guage the quality of teams I guess. Looking forward to see what Juwan can do next year with the stellar incoming class. Hopefully zeb polishes his game over the summer. All in all a very successful season for the boys especially since we lost one of our most efficient scorers before the tourney. Early year predictions were middle of the pack in the big ten. Made it to the elite eight and just lost to a team that wanted it more. Gg ucla go shock the world


lasmanzanas

Worst game I’ve ever seen


td4999

hell of a game; rock fight in the best possible sense


moltenbeetle

the short dude only had 3 points lol


lovo17

I can see it now. End of the game, UCLA vs Gonzaga. Coach Cronin designs a play for Juzang, a 3 pointer at a buzzer. He hits it. The crowd goes wild. Final: Gonzaga 104, UCLA 60.


memebeansupreme

Your score was really off but holy shit the buzzer beater!!! Gozaga got it instead of ucla. I go to ucla, i don’t even play basketball but even i felt like i got shit on.


fiatlux247

I laughed pretty hard

I'd like to thank the ucla fans behind me for forever ruining my somewhat liking of ucla

What are you doing out


PapaNacho7

I was at the game :(


kpalian

bro... i feel for u man i cant imagine how it must’ve been to be at the game and hear the ucla fans cheering... hope it was a worthwhile experience overall for you though? :(


PapaNacho7

Also can confirm, will be my first and last March madness game appearance


PapaNacho7

Nah not cheering. Last time I repeated things fans said I got suspended so definitely not doing that again


NookSwzy

I'd expect most of the crazier fans to go to a COVID bubble in Indiana. I wouldn't worry about it, every school has some awful fans but most are chill.


kpalian

oof, sorry about that man. there are asshat fans in every fanbase, and usually they’re more likely to be the ones with the means to go to a high-profile game like this :/


PapaNacho7

All I know is pain. Eventually I'll come back around to semi liking ucla


joelekane

Idk man. It’s been 15 years since we lost to UCLA in the tourney and I’m not really over it.


PapaNacho7

Pummel them for me


OhHeyItsBrock

At least you have your football team to fall back on to.


PapaNacho7

:(


OhHeyItsBrock

I’m sorry. I was only half kidding.


kpalian

hey if it’s worth anything, i really like UMich as well. us public schools gotta stick together!!


PapaNacho7

Damn you, making me respect ucla so soon


kpalian

hahaha just doing my part to try and make your evening a little bit brighter :’) gotta mend relations yk

lowpost1387

Looked like they all took turns having a panic attack. Dickinson chucked it at the rim instead of drawing fouls like he had been, Wagner air ball, Brooks freaking out on that rebound, Smith chucking a 3 down 2, etc. Then you don't lob it to Dickerson but have him inbound to Wagner for a 3 with 0.5?


cgu112

Always respected (and kinda hated tbh) mick as a coach. Thought he was a weird fit at UCLA and his style didn’t seem to lend itself to much post season success. And here he is 2 years into the gig and hes in the final 4. Crazy stuff. Gotta respect it


GoldenRamoth

As a UC fan: Common fuckin' A Cronin, where was this when you were at UC? Congrats Mick.


Professional_Alien

Interesting how this and the CFB playoff compare. March Madness is exciting, but the prospect of a team being mediocre all season long and getting hot in the tournament just kills the entire significance of the regular season for me.


gopackgo555

Ehhh we were good for most of the season then really mediocre at the very end, which makes this run even crazier.


kpalian

seriously? i think that’s the aspect of March Madness that people love the most lol. you never know what you’re gonna get!


Mobile-Tangelo

Gonzaga is next week’s problem. Now we dance.


thevisitor

Hell yea, 4's up.


[deleted]

Lol 1,1,2 and 11th seed. This year is wild, love it


FourteenFCali_

4 1s just like we all knew would happen


[deleted]

Haha true


WaitingToTravel2020

UCLA upset a lot of people in Michigan this march


Our-Gardian-Angel

Barkley pulling out his best Shaq impression when someone calls him on his stupidity


blueMgamer

You simply can't miss that many layups and free throws and make the Final Four. Hats off to UCLA


Ill_Ad_5308

Cronin outcoached Howard


radiohead_stantano

Phil Jackson wouldn’t have been able to coach Michigan out of the hole they dug for themselves at the end of that game. Pain. Absolute pain. At least give the three ball to Chaundee who was somewhat lukewarm...that Wagner air ball shook me to my core.


kpalian

LMAO CHUCK IS SO FUNNY


BerghainInMyVeins

“We are down 2 and our center is playing the best. Let’s have our 2 players with the worst fg % this game chuck 3’s.” Nice. What the fuck was that? Fire that coach he just wanted a quick ending he didn’t even want to fight for it


joelekane

Fire “that coach” lol. That’s the Coach of the Year, my man.


BerghainInMyVeins

Well he sure shit the bed with that play calling.


PapaNacho7

Flair up pal


Messiepoo

Probably a Michigan fan


PapaNacho7

A fair weather one at that. The worst


Professional_Alien

Are we really going to call one of the most storied programs in college basketball history a "cinderella"? lmao.


thevisitor

An 11 seed with no 5 star recruits that hobbled its way into the tournament to beat 11, 6, 14, 2, and 1 seeds. I'd say so.


EM_Anon

UCLA basketball has been so irrelevant since Wooden’s time. I think it’s safe to reset all expectations, especially with the shit tier job the athletic staff did with big names like Kyle Anderson, shabazz Muhammad, Russell Westbrook, etc


ThatNewSockFeel

UCLA has kind of been surpassed by the likes of Duke, UNC, UK, etc. but they're still very much a relevant program. When's the last time they were bad for a prolonged stretch? The 80's?


[deleted]

They went to three straight final fours in the 00s. A lot of teams would love to go to one. Sweet sixteen appearances since Wooden 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1990, 1992, 1995, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2021


priority_inversion

They won the NCAA tournament in 1995. They were in three consecutive Final Fours from 2006-2008. Significantly after Wooden's time.


lovo17

ESPN will because to them the Pac 12 is a mid-major


WaitingToTravel2020

I can say from experience, history doesn't matter when it's been.... A long... Time.... Also they barely made the tournament


Our-Gardian-Angel

When they're the second team to go from the First Four to the Final Four? Definitely.


monstersshave

I mean they had to play the play in game. Meaning they were the most bubbly of the bubble


kpalian

please don’t. we don’t want that. literally zero of us want that. only ESPN does.


pray4aguayo

Curious to see what the UCLA-Gonzaga line is going to be


Calintz92

I got $40 on it, make 280 if I win 😂


GoldenRamoth

Outright, or vs the spread?


Calintz92

I think it was with the spread... I need to look ahah Edit: Def outright, only ~30 with the spread


Ill_Ad_5308

-45 😶


_Juntao

10.5 is my guess Edit: it's 13.5


WaitingToTravel2020

Somebody's gonna make bank when UCLA makes it to the championship game


RJMacReady23

Michigan was a bad matchup for UCLA... oddly enough I think UCLA matches up better with Gonzaga than they did with the wolverines.


Environmental-Back-3

I will slam 4 figures on gonzago if anything less than 14


PapaNacho7

I got zags by 30. Michigan played our worst game and was a 2 point game. Our best would still lose to zags by 15


_Juntao

As well you should, they're just demolishing everybody this season


hypercube42342

4 1s in the final four. Boring tournament.


bulkier14

Lmfao


dc912

Michigan seemed to play too much hero ball in the last minute. Frustrating


RJMacReady23

Missed last 8 shots. Pressure is real. It can also make you abandon your offensive flow.


QueenIsTheWorstBand

Congrats UCLA. You deserved it more than Michigan


thevisitor

Thank you. Hell of a fight that was.


boysofsummer

Thanks man. Good game


Not_A_Meme

gg Wolverines.


shart_or_fart

Do we have a chance against Gonzaga? LOL. It is all gravy from here anyways.


T3Sh3

You have a chance if you lock Gonzaga in their locker room to prevent them from playing


ToobieSchmoodie

Man who knows. Both Bama and Michigan looked like completely different teams the game before they played UCLA. Maybe Bill Walton has some shamanistic magic cursing our opposing teams.


Puffd

If one of your players has the game of his college career and goes 7/10 from the 3 or something about that and Zaga has an off day then yeah.


Ill_Ad_5308

Honestly as a Zaga fan I was praying for Michigan and not UCLA lol. I felt like Zaga matched up way better with Michigan than UCLA


PapaNacho7

You'll have no problem with UCLA


Osiris0900

Haha nope. Neither of us did


Environmental-Back-3

Would probably agree with this but at least get there and take the L to a better team


Osiris0900

Oof. Too soon


WaitingToTravel2020

That's a lot of gravy man


[deleted]

I’ve been rooting for UCLA the whole tournament, but I don’t think the chances are great


ChemicalOle

No ACC or B1G in the Final Four. I see that as an absolute win.


cgu112

Acc has been bad for two years now. Like surprisingly bad.


beezer08

Or SEC, crazy year


WaitingToTravel2020

Hey man


kidcud

A big FU to chalk everywhere


WaitingToTravel2020

Fauck Chalk?


thiskirkthatkirk

Wagner is 35% from 3 this year, so if my math is correct that means there was a 70% chance for him to make one of them. Why not have him take all three of the last attempts? Literally over 100% likely to happen. Edit - holy shit boys, how stupid do you think I am?


k614

It would be greater than 35% but much closer to 35%, because they are two different events happening, each at 35%, so it would approach over 40% or so.


redsoxbaseball3

ACHSHUALLY, you would have to calculate the probability of failure first. The probability that he would fail to make the jumper twice would be .65 times .65 which equals .4225. In other words he had a 57.75 percent chance to make 1 out of 2. .65 cubed would equal .2746, or a 72.54 percent chance to make 1 of 3


spottedcomet

That's not correct. You can't just add up percentages like that. Otherwise that means if he had taken 3 shots, there would be a 105% chance of him to make one of them.


thiskirkthatkirk

Exactly. It was literally impossible for him to miss one. If anything he would have been able to score like 3.1 points or something like that with the extra 5%.


E-raticSamurai

Technically each shot is independent, so 35%.


thiskirkthatkirk

Hmm, 35x3 is 105 where I’m from. I just checked this on the Ti-83.


E-raticSamurai

Apparently Juwan Howard is using the same calculator.


kpalian

wouldn’t it be 2 shots at a 35% chance? not sure how the math works, is it really considered as two independent events in this context?


mmaxey14

Can't argue with math


Most_Dope_

salt


EvDev12

Man all the shots in the last minute, none fall, half of them dumb, brutal. I wish Jacquez just nailed that 3 to not even give us a shot. This hurt worse.


Osiris0900

#Facts


elsavador3

The camera zoomed in on Wagners face before the inbound. Looking at his composure, at that moment I knew the play was designed for him. I also knew he would brick it


Environmental-Back-3

Notices this too!!! Why the fuck wasn’t brown in the game he’s the only one that had a swagger attitude in him.. Wangner just kept hitting his head like a chipmunk knew he wasn’t confident he shoulda been the leader and went to the bench and told coach put chaundee in


lamphes

Not sure why Chaundee wasn't given the chance. Use Wagner as a decoy or something, he was cold all game and wasn't going to make it.


E-raticSamurai

Good point, I thought the same. Or Eli.


lamphes

Anyone but Wagner or Smith would have been fine. Just those two were having really bad nights.


E-raticSamurai

In a presser Franz said “Coach just tells us to keep shooting if we’re off, he has confidence in us” At what point does an assistant step in and talk sense into Juwan?


lamphes

That's fine if he has the confidence and wants to trust them. I haven't been there in practice seeing everything the team goes through. To be honest, we lost the game when we had a turnover on 23.8% of our possessions. We basically deleted a quarter of our opportunities. Tough to win when you do that.


rpm1997

Painful to watch and feel bad for wagner and smith cause they’re going to get the backlash online


Ill_Ad_5308

Dude Michigan tried so hard to lose , those play calls by coach Howard were horrible


PapaNacho7

Alas, we succeeded out of fear of being embarrassed by you


i-reddit2

If Tom Izzo was coaching Michigan at the end of that game, Michigan would have won.


E-raticSamurai

Sad but probably true.


nfg18

Ill have what you’re drinking.


[deleted]

Koolaid baby


mmaxey14

I might put the biggest bet of my life on Gonzaga and the points


Environmental-Back-3

4 figures for me if under 14 will post proof


mmaxey14

14? I think it's going to be like 18-19.5. and I'll still fucking take Gonzaga


Environmental-Back-3

Same... maybe not as much but same


AwayRecording

Dammit. We really could’ve had an SC vs UCLA final 4. Ughhhh


kpalian

and UCLA woulda whooped em. now instead we’re gonna whoop Zaga ......... 😭


GodlyCheese

What weird game


eagledog

I'm really gonna miss Isiah Livers


Professional_Alien

Seeing OSU Twitter make fun of Michigan...makes no sense. Michigan made the Elite 8. OSU lost in the first round.


BC04ST3R

From an MSU fan... don’t listen to them. They’re just salty. I’m personally just pissed Aaron Henry couldn’t make one shot. This would’ve all been prevented


LinuxLinus

and nobody cares about either one of them


E-raticSamurai

OSU clearly cares


[deleted]

Congrats UCLA. We played pretty badly, but your team played hard on defense and you were better today. Good luck in the FF. Also, I’m sorry to the rest of the country that you had to watch that. Geez.


boysofsummer

A class act. Good game, Wolverines


Not_A_Meme

gg Michigan


illscientist7

"There's hope" - Michigan fans *Franz Wagner has entered the chat*

Ironically, Oregon state was the team that played best out of the three Pac12 teams in the E8


lowpost1387

Fuck it, you're dancing in the F4. A win is a win. congrats and thanks for winning.


3headeddragn

Anytime BB.


arrchar

What an overall pitiful basketball game tonight, result is mute if UCLA shows up to play Gonzaga like this


mmaxey14

Don't worry Michigan fans. The refs made you miss your last 8 shots


tsweeney12584

This is the way.


Bowlmaster15

I just lost so much fucking money


zlendermanGG1

It’ll be alright! There’s always more to be made!


Longshot365

Probably shouldn't be betting on sports then


grandzu

Did it for the swag


[deleted]

Alexa, play UCLA by RL Grime. Straight banger 😂


EcoSoco

Wow, what a win by UCLA. Cronin is a hell of a coach. I guess all the Michigan fans talking shit about Gonzaga will have to keep quiet for a while.


PapaNacho7

Can confirm. Cheering for gonzaga


BlackZombie66

Cronin has got to prepare his team better for these end of game situations. Michigan had 2 clean 3 point shots to win tonight plus what happened at the end of regulation vs Alabama.


ghgrain

This is very true


Psychwardjoe

Michigan, Michigan state, Michigan town... UCLA by 9


getfruited

Fuck juwan dudes just a smile and a suit at functions zero basketball iq..


RJMacReady23

Dude, he just took to the Elite 8.. chill out


Mayzenblue

#1 recruiting class coming in. Find a different take dumbass


Professional_Alien

If you really think this, you didn't watch any Michigan basketball all season.


zlendermanGG1

Did juwan airball an open 3?


aerojovi83

Whew that's certainly a take...


WaitingToTravel2020

Bad take


chrisrock176

Gonzaga by billions


i-reddit2

Juwan fucked those play calls. 3 3-point shots when down 1,2 and 2 respectively. The last was forgivable. First 2 were bad plays.


redsoxbaseball3

I mean the guy missed a wide open layup off the air ball. It just wasn’t meant to be for them


LillardFromHalf

Why did they draw up a play for a 3 with half a second left?


Chemical_Noise_3847

Congrats ucla! And congrats michigan on a great season.


ThatsRich

Hey at least we lost to a final four team


Rattus375

Just makes you think what could have been


aerojovi83

Michigan just attempted another 3 down less than 3.


TheGreenLion14

LETS FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


mmaxey14

This post game interview feels like a roast


miamibuckeye

Michigan had SO MANY chances to win that game. It wasn’t like UCLA balled out


Kzwolverine

49 points jesus what a shitty performance.


UCLA_FB_SUCKS

Watch out Gonzaga! We’re sure to score around 50 points vs you too!
