  1. To be honest, its condescending to remind somebody of the bigger problems we face as a society and country on a basketball forum for a team that just threw itself out of tournament contention. We are all fine people, with a decent sense of character. We could/should have won the game today and we didn't, and now our season is effectively over. I will never understand the feeling that its not okay to share frustration and open criticism after something like that game.
  2. Holtmann owns Archie. Plain and simple. We had one of the most incredible runs we've had all year at the end there, and then we blow it. On top of not showing up for the first 33 minutes of the game to begin with. Hard to get excited about the NIT at this point. I'm pretty done with this team and this season.
  3. Tugged at the heart strings to see Juwan walk off like that. So glad his last basket was a nasty dunk. Behind Vic, Juwan is my all time favorite hoosier. I so hope we see him around in one way or another with the program. Only excuse I'll take is he can't find time because of his NBA schedule. OSU should be scared. We look totally different this month.
  4. I know I'm just repeating what so many have already said, but what an iconic defensive possession for Rob. Completely shut down the conference player of the year on the very last possession and made him take a terrible shot allowing us to preserve the lead/win. Justin and Devonte deserve the brunt of the praise today, but Rob locking up Cassius is what I will replay on Youtube a million times when I go back to this game. Name a better 14 loss team in the country
  5. Race is a fantastic player. De'Ron cant be stopped some games and tonight was one of them. Romeo was Romeo when it mattered. Great game. Always fun to see the rare wisconsin win. But it's time for bed.
  6. having some dark thoughts about betting against my own team because a Purdue -6 spread is so appetizing
  7. I didn't say anything about starting the kid, but there's quite a spectrum of opportunity before we get down to "we're down 26 points, let's see what Race can do". It's so frustrating to see that be the opportunity we see to introduce a kid back into minutes when Arch has been clamoring about getting him into the game for 5 games.
  8. so glad we finally found some time for him down 26.
  9. noticed this as well recently. when is this ever a good decision??
  10. Had the chance to see this game at AH and Al was waiting on me to use the buffalouies bathroom after me, hood up head down. I told him he gave a nice try and he nodded and never looked me in the eye. Looked upset to be recognized at all. Just the cherry on top for one of the most pathetic performances I've seen. Our players are totally dejected and we have a coach who cant do anything to fix any of our problems. Just wonder where our true rock bottom is. It seems a ways further down
  11. In the past Justin has proved me wrong and shown great stretches of play and being a big factor for us in games. It wasn't this one. His defense was atrocious and it led to so many points for them. It is unfathomable how we let 2 players like Wieskamp and Bohannon come in and shoot the absolute lights out because we aren't that concerned with getting in their face and guarding the shot as it starts. I thought Juwan really hamstringed us too with a couple of those dumb fouls that ultimately pushed him out of the game way too early. They had nothing for us inside and I thought DeRon and Juwan could have got whatever they wanted for a large portion of that game. Another extremely disappointing loss fellas. MSU win seems to be a fluke. If we wanted to piece together a turnaround, it had to continue with Iowa. You just wonder if we're ever going to figure it out this season and the bigger problem is it may already be too late.
  12. do we have any explanation for De'Ron being ~3 weeks away from minutes to playing a significant 25 tonight and not turning the ball over, all in the span of 72 hours?
  13. IMO, best effort all year. Especially when Juwan went out (which I'm sick about, hopefully he is as fine as he looked on the bench). Al, Romeo, Devonte, Justin, and DeRon all deserve serious props for being tough as hell the entire game and churning out a bruising win. That felt like a classic Big Ten game. Add that to the resume, there's plenty of time to salvage something out of this year if we continue that kind of play.
