A two loss Stanford who needed a last second field goal to beat Notre Dame at home. The same Notre Dame that we absolutely rolled in the Fiesta Bowl.
Tennessee has been "going to have a good team this year" for the past four years. It's getting old.
Looking like we'll see quite a bit of Lyle at 2 guard with Jackson running point, considering our current back-court situation.
All the old farts won't even stand up or make noise during the game. Good luck getting them to do anything remotely physical.
His dad is also making a big fuss about minutes.
They put it on themselves.
Still though, it was an off balance heave that wasn't even supposed to be open. Close enough to a hail mary.
This team is so trash just pull Loving's scholarship and pay Kobi Simmons like 300k. It's our only hope.
She'd have difficulty shooting a men's ball.
Damn if Corey coulda fucking caught a punt.
Pretty sure you were you were arguing with me in the thread where I said that. :)
Yeah I guess I was a little harsh. But this dude was trash talking the Spartans after the playoff even though we got thoroughly outplayed against them and he along with the rest of the defense couldn't stop a second/third string QB or their true freshman RB when it counted most. An embarrassment to the team, kinda glad he's on his way.
Does this dude ever shut the fuck up? Jesus Christ what an asshole he must be. Yeah he's good at football, but that's about it.
Fun fact time: Koback goes to the same high school that Eric Page went to (the Toledo guy that almost beat our Buckeyes by himself).
Kentucky's recruiting coordinator also used to coach at Holland Springfield, which explains the offer.
We just lost by 25 to Indiana. Something needs fixed. May have just been a bad day, but I doubt that. Getting demolished by Crean doesn't happen to a team with no problems.
LMAO DISREGARD EVERYTHING I JUST TYPED. WE ARE LOSING BY 30 AT HALFTIME TO CREANPUFF. FIRE THAD IMMEDIATELY.
Holy shit the whoosh just hit me full force, i'm stupid.
I'd rather comment now than wait till the Maryland game. We still don't have a win to prove to me that this team is any better than last years, but we certainly have the losses to prove they aren't.
Our two best wins are Northwestern and Kentucky. Kentucky is being exposed as a fraud and Northwestern was missing their best player. Although the team is obviously improving, (AKA: The Grandstaff effect) we'll see if we're a top six big ten team when we go on the road to Maryland and Purdue in consecutive games. IF we keep it close I'll be ecstatic, but it's likely we'll get blown out in one of them (probably Maryland) like many have.
Now that the team has gelled and swapped white boys, I'm more excited for next year than this if i'm perfectly honest and I'm sure many others feel the same. If we land Simmons I think we have a chance to make a run for the Final 4. As for now, these guys have proven they can beat the teams they should. Hopefully we'll back in to a tourney appearance to fill the gap between this year and next.
I've changed my mind and this thread looks more and more ludicrous every time we take the floor.
The man shouldn't have to earn jack squat. He's a proven offensive mastermind. Anyone but Tim Beck.
Benching Loving would be one of the stupidest coaching decisions Thad could make. That's exactly how you lose to more mediocre teams, taking your best player off the floor and put him in with the subs.
So tell me, who do we start over him to get similar production? Mickey "1ppg" Mitchell? Anyone else puts us at a size disadvantage.
Taking the best scorer out of the lineup of an 8-5 team going into conference play will only lead to more struggles.
Mozgov missed at least three easy layups and Love missed a another. We play them at the Q on January 18th so we won't have to wait too long for revenge.
Zeke ran for 30 yards in the biggest game of the season. Not clutch.
You can thank Bucknut for setting me up.
Yeah his back problems are all my fault.
Mickey looked lost out there but that should change with more games. Hopefully he's settled in by the trip to Northwestern.
Before the Kentucky game I would have given this team absolutely no chance of making the tourney. Now there's a chance. I can easily see this team taking the next four games and going into Bloomington at 11-5 with loads of momentum and a chance to add another quality win to the resume.
However, what's most important now is getting a blowout win on Sunday and not lose to another mediocre team.
If Thad can turn this season into a tourney appearance I think I may just be off his case.
