    Purdue post game

    I mean, they can hit some shots, but I'd leave them semi-open if it meant keeping Romeo out of the lane. In fact, I'd rather give them wide open threes than let Romeo drive the lane. If I don't pack in the defense, Romeo is going to make the layup. He's a great finisher. Green and Al might hit the three, but there's no Cline or Bohannon on this team.

    Purdue post game

    I think the big problem is that we've been exposed as a team that has two scorers, and if you can stop Romeo from driving, there's no one that can shoot consistently enough to command the defense's attention. Morgan also seems pretty exhausted at this point. He's been going up against guys 2-4 inches taller than him all year. So basically every team is playing the pack line on us, keying in on Langford, pretty much gifting us good looks from three, and we just can't hit the shots. Romeo's not getting shots because he literally can't drive it; there's always at least two defenders to stop him, and no one can shoot consistently enough to open up the floor.

    I think this might be the unluckiest IU team I've ever watched. Honestly, against Iowa, the last Bohannon three was just GARBAGE, and it sealed the game. Ohio State hits a well-defended dagger. Cline falls down and his three bounces up and over into the hoop, and then Morgan finds the only slick spot on the floor. Four of the last five games, IU hasn't actually played poorly, but it just seems like anytime there's a pass that hits an IU player in the head, for example, it bounces right to Ryan Cline as he's running toward the basket. I really can't comprehend the number of unlucky bounces I've watched the ball take this year. Unluckiest team I've ever watched...

    That's exactly what I hate about it; it's not "toughness," you're just constantly fouling on the premise that if you do it all the time, the refs just won't call it.

    The thing that's most annoying about Purdue is they just constantly foul and get away with it, and it's just so frustrating to watch. They even won on a foul. The team gave a lot of heart and effort tonight. They just can't hit shots.

    I haven't seen over the back called in a couple years....but that's exactly what that was.

    What did Davis even do besides reach for the ball? What am I not seeing?

    Morgan needs to be smarter. Just throw it off one of the players instead of throwing a pass that, even if it didn't get deflected, was going to be behind his teammate.

    That was all Haarms hooking.

    Edward Smith at it again

    I said it in the beginning of the thread, but Morgan and Davis (though Davis has only seen limited play this year, he's been more consistent and has developed a stronger post presence than I remember him having - it could be just age, but I feel like I see improvement)

    What do you think people in the previous generation were saying about parents of hippies in the sixties?

    Again, this isn't an OUTSIDE problem.

    Edward Smith at it again

    That dang generation Z! Edit: Ironically, I find that many of the things we millenials get criticized for, like attachment to phones/devices, are things that are done just as much, if not more by older generations. I guess in the end it's just people being people, and it's easier to project our own problems onto others instead of taking ownership of our own shortcomings......much like the Smith's are projecting their own deficiencies onto Archie and the IU basketball team. (How about that for tying a tangential topic back into the thread topic!?)

    Edward Smith at it again

    I think the disconnect we are having in this discussion is that it isn't JUST the tweet (though it in, and of itself is a problem). It's that the tweet is a public manifestation of the very real chemistry issues this team has, and the Smith's seem to be at the center of it. If Edward Smith is tweeting this stuff, how much do you think he's inserting himself into the daily functioning of the team?
