    As the saying goes, one bad apple can spoil the bunch.

    Purdue Pregame Thread

    I can only assume that CAM will not be embarrassed like we were on Monday and has lit a fire under these boys. I think we come out with a very high energy level on defense, and I think RP plays a pivotal role in making CE inefficient. This is the game Romeo takes over and leads us to victory. I’ll take IU 68-61 in a hard fought game.

    This is highly subjective, and you probably just think that because that’s what you’re exposed to. I would GUARANTEE that every fan base has crazies and complains about players. Granted, we have a very large fan base, so just based off of numbers, we probably have more, but we’re probably not disproportionately represented. People are passionate about their team(s), and if they’re not performing well, there’s only two people to complain about - the coach or the players. The players actually play the game, so they take the brunt of it in most cases. Some people are more passionate, vocal, and over the top than others, so the people who are loud drown out the quite ones.Granted some people take it WAY over the top and have unrealistic expectations/reactions, but every fan base has them. I would say let’s continue this over on the other board if there’s further discussion to be had and not continue derailing the KB thread.

    This happens everywhere. If it was an issue, no one would get kids committing to their programs.
  5. I don't think anyone is advocating playing 11-12 guys. I'm just saying that you need the ammunition in case something happens due to injuries or other unknown circumstances. That 11th or 12guy could end up being your 8th or 9th. That's what has happened to us this year.
  6. I don't think you can do this, just due to the unknown. This year is a great example with all of the injuries. If you have 3-4 guys go down in your scenario, you're literally playing walk-ons at that point. I think you fill out your scholarships, but manage the roster in a way that doesn't leave you lacking in any particular area. It's easier said than done.
  7. I think it’s been mentioned that there have been rumblings of chemistry issues, and something like that could compound the issue. It could be the reason guys look somewhat disinterested or whatever. If that’s the case, CAM has to nip it in the bud.

    The laugh at Purdue Thread...

    I’m all for free speech and wouldn’t have it any other way. I just think it is hypocritical that we say PU has an inferiority complex, yet we are doing something similar. With the way we’ve been playing, its even worse. Just my opinion.
  9. I would say that 5 guys on our current roster falls on him. One is currently leading us in ppg (Romeo), one had to medical redshirt (Hunter), one was our starting PG getting into a great rhythm and playing excellent basketball before a concussion (Phinisee), and two are still trying to learn the system (Forrester), with one being a GREAT outside shooter (Anderson). I know you keep bringing up CAM “recruiting” the players we already had committed, but what else did you expect him to do?! It was late in the recruiting process and the players who were uncommitted, most likely were never recruited by CAM while at Dayton. We needed bodies, and it’s not like the guys who were signed were terrible, just probably not “his” style of player. We could have potentially had McKinley Wright, but he didn’t want to wait.
  10. If you can’t see the complete roster differences between the ‘02 team and our current team, I don’t know what to tell you. I typically respect your opinion Rico, but you’re way off base here. That ‘02 team had WAY more overall talent than our current team. The way our current roster is constructed is very poor. If you do not have players who can shoot the ball, which is what basketball is predicated on, it makes winning way more difficult. We don’t have anyone to stretch the floor currently, and teams will continue game planning for us just like Nebraska did. Edit: Plus the ‘02 team had experience at key positions (Coverdale, Fife, Hornsby, Newton, etc) with a stud in Jeffries as a sophomore.

    Is this a copy and paste from the other board?

    Well he won his gold jersey due to “prolific shooting”. Also, watch his highlights. He’s not a 3pt specialist, but he absolutely someone who would have come in and given us another shooting/scoring option.

    The laugh at Purdue Thread...

    I motion to remove/delete this thread. I know it was all in good fun, but we have no room to laugh at anyone. We always talk about them having a little brother complex, but this thread is no better.

    This. He needs to overhaul this roster. The poor roster management is on Crean at this point.
