    He’s 12-42 for 29% over the last ten games. That’s pretty bad.

    I agree with your first part, but he better improve his shot if he’s going to feature his skills in the NBA. His long distance range has been dreadful this year.

    I agree, but bad teams don’t typically find luck easy to come by.

    Defended well, ball hit the front of the rim, bounced three feet in the air and then went in. The lucky three was talking about.

    My takes.... 1)Purdue shot awful and gave us every opportunity, but as usual for this team we couldn’t shoot and seize the opportunity. 2)The team played their tales off. 3)Never in my life have I seen a team be so unlucky. Up 4 and the idiot hits the front of the rim, bounces three feet in the air and goes in. How many times have teams hit crap threes late in the game against us!? And the tip in....so much luck. 4) Individually .... JM didn’t show up. Could point to individual instances by different guys throughout the game, as JS not helping on D late to protect the rim against a smaller player, etc, that could have made a difference. But what’s the point?

    Yeah, can’t argue there. My suspicion is that he’s seen what guys are capable of in practice and in his opinion, those things that worked are short-lived and he believes the guys he keeps going back to are what really gives us a chance to win long-term. 🤷🏻‍♂️ Almost like he doesn’t really believe what he’s seeing, so he goes back to what his assessment is. I think he should roll with some of the young guys and put a few guys on the bench that continue to hurt us. Might as well let JF, DA and CM get their heads beat in so they know what kind of work they have to put in. DG and JS aren’t going to change at this point.

    My whole thing is give him time. I agree, I would expect some type of improvement over the course of the season, but he’s not exactly flush with talent or with guys he chose. He may be battling a number of guys that refuse to buy in or work to get better 🤷🏻‍♂️. But he also knows he has nowhere else to turn if he’s trying to be competitive this year. I’m more disappointed in guys like Fitzner, Smith, and Green. These guys have gone backwards this year. You can tell there wasn’t much work put in during the off-season. JM is playing out of position bc of roster construction, which gets him in foul trouble easily. McRoberts is a walk-on who hasn’t given us anything near what he did last year. DD has been hurt most of the year. CM isn’t ready, and not sure he’s capable. I like AD, and think he needs to be on the floor more, but he’s inconsistent. RT and JH have been hurt all year. JF and DA are freshmen who weren’t expected to be immediate/major contributors. RL has struggled from deep, but has been forced to partly carry a team as a freshman. And RP has been a solid PG, but he also missed a large stretch. Hate to make excuses, but CAM wasn’t dealt much of a hand and has had to manage a mirage of issues. I just hope DA, JF, JH and RP make large strides this coming offseason along with AD and a couple impact freshmen in TJD and Brooks or we may be another year away (assuming another solid recruiting class) from really competing at the top of the Big10. JMO of course.

    And he is 26-97 on the year for 26.8%. Romeo is most definitely part of the issue.

    Romeo is a stud athlete who does some things really well, but his inability to knock down the three really hamstrings this team. We thought he was going to be better than average from deep and he’s just not been very good from distance. I know CAM expected more.

    “It’s pretty clear that the players aren’t going to magically transform into what they aren’t”. Evidently some think CAM should be able to transform them. Some guys are never going to be able to do certain things unfortunately. There are SO many deficiencies on this team that can’t be on CAM. I know some want adjustments to what we have, but I don’t think that’s beneficial to the future. They need to stick to the plan so the young guys get a grasp and won’t be essentially starting over next year. RP, DA, and JF need to show improvement next year (although RP has been solid for a freshman) or CAM can rightly be criticized. RT and JH need to get on the court. I think we’ll be fine if we snag Brooks and have another top class coming in. And recruiting success continues with CAM’s third class.

    Not directed at you my friend. I know you care. I do too, just see it differently. You’ve not been disrespectful.

    And two of those 5 have been injured for long spurts......don’t let the facts get in your way here.

    Yeah, genius, consistent with “this guy’s” stance our talent level is pathetic, to the extent that those teams compete with us. Comprehension isn’t your strong point. I’m out. I’ll let you guys have your pity party.

    Ok. So we have 5 players you like, our two best have underwhelmed, yet it’s all CAM’s fault?

    I can live with Durham. I don’t think any coach with a completely different system comes in and does much better. Guess we’ll never know.
