Open Thread: UCLA vs. UM

I thought I had posted this earlier, but something happened.

Post game thoughts? I'll have more tomorrow after I've fully digested the game, but today's loss reinforced a lot of the questions we Tommy critics have had about his competency. In end-game situations, UM looked unprepared and nervous; thoughout the game, UM turned the ball over too much, suffered too many defensive breakdowns, and had no plan on offense; etc.

Worst of all, though, Michigan was unable to adjust to the most elementary of defensive techniques: the double team. What the shit is that? It's not like they haven't heard about this not-so-new maneuver in Durham; Duke might run the double-team trap better than anyone. So, why wasn't Amaker--and why weren't his players?--ready?
