Our boys haven't quite gotten up to full speed on the theory of help side defense, but they're getting better at it. Michigan's dang good, but their road map has them coming to AH. I'm encouraged.

Hey hats off to Michigan they are really good! You can’t take anything away from them. I feel we are a good team also but not quite in the same level as Michigan. We need a three point shooter to get us to that next level. I can’t remember the last time Fritz hit a three. Get RP back will help that some he seems to be a good outside shooter. Green has had three years to improve his game and it hasn’t happened. McRoberts doesn’t even try to score. I really think it’s going to have to come from RP an Durham.

It was about what I expected.  I can't complain much given our injuries but sooner or later Archie just has to get a signature win.  I hope it's soon.

Phinisee would have made a big difference.  Davis would have helped more than Fitzner or Moore.  so that injury hurt a lot.  i really liked the offense/defense subbing CAM did after Romeo and Juwan got their 2 fouls.  did a great job of having them in as much as he could risk.  Juwan had another big game, but man, if he made his easy shots and FTS, he would have been a monster.  McRoberts really hurts us at this point.  i know a lot of you are big fans, but he hurts us.  maybe Demezi could have knocked down some 3's?  i think we land at 24 or 25 with 22, 23, 24, 25, 27, and 31 all losing.

oops and 26 and 29 lost.  i guess Villanova could move back in?  maybe TCU?  anyone else would have been 32 or worse as far as receiving votes goes.

1 and 1/2 seasons in. Still doesn’t have his guys. Multiple injuries. 

I think that your expectations are a little unreasonable

Unfortunately good shooters don’t just appear from somebody who’s typically not a good shooter. Don’t think we have that guy on this team. 

Unless you are Wisconsin and the last guy on the bench gets in the game and hits 6 of 7 in 15 mins.

To emphasize this point...Damezi should be getting McBob's minutes from here on out.

I committed the sin early this season of suggesting that I hoped someone earned McBob's minutes this season.  I was roundly criticized for suggesting that he was better utilized as a defensive specialist off the bench to help slow the other team's momentum.

At this stage, it sounds like several players could take his minutes without much argument from the fans.

I think that is a reflection of teams k owing we struggle from three. They pack it in on is. So our "chippies" are much more contested than they should be.

In that case, teams shouldn't defend Michigan beyond 10 feet.  They did less than IU did from outside.

I'm expecting a top 3 conference finish and Sweet 16.  Very reasonable.

Had a few bad rolls on shots, and need a couple guys to step up on their open 3 opportunities.  Not a bad showing, and gives me hope we can beat them at home. Gotta start games out better still, but a lot to be happy about with so many injuries. 

Key wins would be Marquette, Louisville, and Butler, so I'm not sure what that is about, there will be more.

Michigan is good. We are without our starting guard and our two stars were in foul trouble - that is the difference

And on the road and slow start.

i honestly like our chances on a neutral court completely healed.

I liked CAM's answer to the last question in the presser, "what will you work on for the next game?"  His answer was, "everything."

don't think he liked the question at that point.

As for the slow starts, maybe he needs to install the Crean walk through.  I understand they were pretty much full contact and brutal, leaving the team gasping and "ready" to play. (TIC)

Ideally, I would have liked to have rotated them the rest of the half. That way you have at least one of them out there at all times and both are more rested for the second half. 

Dont get me wrong, I’m fairly pleased with how we played once we abandoned keeping them on the bench and put them in. I’m just frustrated that we let the game get out of hand when I think maybe we could have prevented that. 

Hindsight is 20/20 though.  If he had kept them in and they picked up a third foul, then we were really up the creek without a paddle.

At some point you expect some of the other guys to provide a little bit of stop gap.  They completely peed their pants though...teaching moment I guess.

Was anyone else screaming "take away his right hand" for Simpson and his running hook?

I had to turn the sound down as the announcers gushed all over.

Clark Kellog grates on my nerves nearly as much as Dan Dakich

Man, once you look at who came off the bench today this loss makes a lot of sense. Fitzner, Moore, and Mcroberts bring nothing to the table offensively, these injuries have killed our depth.

I am seriously concerned.  Had friends over to watch the game. So might have missed it.  But.... why did De'Ron get any game time ?

Thank you sir.  Makes sense after what happened in the   Illinois game. 

Geez, another Hoosier goes down due to injury.  When will it end ?  When will it end ?

Get well, De'Ron !

Long time lurker, I really enjoy all the insight provided on this board regarding recruiting and the current team.  

I am impressed with strides this team is making, impressed with offensive adjustments the staff has made recently, and impressed with half time adjustments all season. 

We will make noise in the conference and be in the dance.  Maybe mandatory ball to Morgan first 5 possessions would help slow starts.

We beat Illinois and lost to arguably the best team in the country on the road in a hard fought game. I would hope we're still in the top 25.
