Glad I waited until the last 5 minutes to tune into this one, lol.  Nebraska looks like our last chance at a road win this season.  Why was TJD stuck on the bench?

Played very bad and was timid against their big men

Going to be a long year. Lots of ups and downs....hopefully a few more ups. Gotta pick ourselves up...dust ourselves off and bring it hard against Nebraska. As long as we don’t have a huge slide like last year we will make the tournament.

Fellas, this team is like a bunch of deer caught in the headlights.

Scared to shoot...no confidence...and for good reason nobody can shoot worth a nickel.

No fire Archie post?!? Progress!! Dang we need someone to step up and make a couple! Had more than a few wide open ones!  That was a winnable game. Defense did a good job and we played hard. Not much else to discuss really. 

Why man.  You are a huge instigator.  Jeeze

We outplayed Rutgers for the last 35 or whatever minuttes after that poor start. You can say that poor start cost us the game. Along with poor shooting (31% for the game, 10% from 3) , poor guard play (6 assists- 8 turnovers), and poor decision making.

Again another road loss where I try to process the lack of leadership on this team. It's not just the bad shooting; it's the complete lack of anybody stepping forward at tough times to make sure the ball goes inside. To make sure the pace slows down on the road when momentum is shifting. To make sure the 50/50 balls go in our favor. To rally the defense and show a tenacity to unify this team in the second half. And leadership isn't just a one person thing. There should be a core of players teaming up to make sure these things happen on the road, yet they just don't. 

And then there's the truly terrible shooting to compound this issue.....

I am going on the record.....this team is going to make the tourney, and not CBI or NIT.  It sucks to lose,  and missing shots is frustrating, but I get the feeling that CAM is starting to turn the culture around.

Give me one ultra quick guard that can beat his man off the dribble and surround him with 2 shooting guards (emphasis on shooting) a shooting stretch 4 and one ultra long athletic big to defend the rim/alter shots and I think I could live with whatever happens...I gotta think you are in every game if you have shooters....right now I think between turnovers and our horrible shooting you might as well count on giving away 30 possessions a night that we don’t even have a chance to score! Scary!

I don't think we out played them from the stretch where we were  up 22-21 to being down 45-28.  This team is just mentally weak especially on the road and when adversity hits they crumble.  Archie is going to have to change the type of kids he is bringing in and being in kids who are tough and hate to lose and will do what it takes to win.  You go 2-18 from 3 and have 16 turnovers you will not win anywhere.

I guess in hindsight but Archie probably had been better off if he would have just cleaned hose when he got here and started to bring in his type of players.  I just know I am done watching Green dribbling through his legs and turning the ball over and taking terrible shots.

Yes, we’re all getting much more comfortable losing.

I think we played hard. The effort was there. I think the refs let too much go underneath and not enough outside. The only thing that is going to get the offense going is hitting outside shots so they can’t pack the middle or getting a ton of FTs.  We beat OSU because they had to guard the 3 because how hot we started at the start. That opened up driving and passing lanes. One thing I am so tired of is one handed shots. What ever happened to the two handed jumper?

We need to have a PG like Aaron Craft or TJ McConnell who was not great but played with a no non sense attitude and was in your face leader.

10% 3PT FG...What the hell are you supposed to do with that? The Helen Keller school shoots a higher percentage. 

I have it on good authority that they do shoot a higher percent, sadly they can't enjoy the cheers from the crowd.

I think Phin in that guard! He’s just not been right all year. If he can get healthy, I think we can be good.

Toughness.  Didn't show any.

Really?  He doesn’t hold anyone else accountable for that.  Why start with Trayce?

I am pissed, I am also a realist(drunk).  We played as poorly as a team could play and still had a snowball's chance.  Gonna lick some wounds, drink 1 more beer, and go to bed.  Gonna get up with the lady in the morn, eat some breakfast, and watch the news.

And I will still be madder than hell about this damn pitiful performance we put on tonight.

You could tell at the end of the game when he got fouled go to the basket he was still not feeling right.
