If he doesn't figure it out soon, Marc is going to become Amir 2.0.  He's already trending that way, and we've got another 2+ years to enjoy that.  When Marc can get off to a hot start, he's great at knocking down 3-4 triples a game.  If his first couple shots don't fall, you can guarantee it's going to be a long night.  Problem is, he plays with Amir's sense of urgency and effort whether his shot is on or off.  Dude needs to amp up.  If he doesn't, hopefully Thad learns from The Amir Project and buries him at the end of the bench.  I'm really hoping these guys coming in next year can contribute right away, then it won't even be a question.

I'd be wary of trying to adjust form.  We all remember how Aaron Craft changed his form on his jumper and unfortunately it altered his shot, and confidence in said shot for the worse.  In watching Tate shoot FTs it doesn't look like there's anything particularly wrong with the shot.  They're just not going in.  In the Nebraska game he actually shot very well from the line which led me to believe he'd worked on it in practice.  Against Purdue he seemed to struggle again, but I feel like with practice and a little more concentration in those in-game moments, he can right this ship.

In conference play, Amir has never had more than 12 points, and his career high 11 rebounds came in an OT game against Mich St.  He also has accumulated 8 total points in March Madness - in 10 games.

Wowww.  I knew it wasn't good, I just didn't realize how bad it really was.  Those stats are amazing........ly horrible.

Yes.  This truly infuriates me.  I bought an 8 game package this year.  They give you tickets for 4 non-conference games and 4 regular season games.  We had sweet seats (100 level) for the 4 non-conference, and get stuck in the nosebleeds for the regular season games.  Last night I'm looking down at the courtside seats from the 300 level just WISHING I could be sitting down there in one of the MANY EMPTY SEATS ON THE FLOOR!!!  If you buy the tickets, get your butt to the game!!  If not, at least find someone who would be all too willing to sacrifice 2 hours of their lives to cheer on the Bucks courtside.

I think we can put 2 and 2 together and figure out that the suspension was due to drugs.  97.1 The Fan touched on the OSU Athletic Department drug policy last week.  Basically, a first offense is a warning and a second offense is a 2 week suspension.  There is the possibility of appeal, which means the sentence could be reduced, which is why Thad kept saying he wasn't sure how long Loving would be out.  Could be less than 2 weeks if appeal went through.  As it turns out, it was exactly 2 weeks.  Also, the athletes are strictly prohibited from talking about the drug policy or any suspensions.

Agreed Burgundy.  It seemed to me yesterday that Russell was content to let someone else take the ball up top and just stand on the wing.  Perhaps needing a rest, or perhaps not wanting to get beat up.  Either way, it's not a good recipe for winning games down the stretch.  Hope they can get things straightened out for Thursday and beyond.

When you give up 17 pts to UM's underwhelming big men trio

Yeah, I have to say, I was getting REALLLLLY tired of hearing the commentators talk about how great of a game the scUM big men were having.  I'm yelling at the tv - "look who they're up against!!!!"  It's not hard to have a decent game against our bigs.  You can pretty much do whatever you want.  What I'd like to know is, who is going to guard Frank Kaminsky in 2 weeks?  Luckily I'll be there to witness that potential dumpster fire first hand.

I'm not sure how you can tell whether or not Loving is pouting.  His expression never changes!  We're winning by 20?  Deadpan.  We're down by 20?  Deadpan.  Regardless, I think we can put 2 and 2 together and figure out that his suspension was due to drugs.  97.1 The Fan touched on the OSU Athletic Department drug policy last week.  Basically, a first offense is a warning and a second offense is a 2 week suspension.  There is the possibility of appeal, which means the sentence could be reduced, which is why Thad kept saying he wasn't sure how long Loving would be out.  Could be less than 2 weeks if appeal went through.  As it turns out, it was exactly 2 weeks.  Also, the athletes are strictly prohibited from talking about the drug policy or any suspensions.

It's nature's way.  Someone has to take the blame.  It's either the players, not playing up to their abilities, or the coach, not coaching them up the right way.  HereWeGo is right...this team has been frustrating to watch for several years now.  They do seem to make a run in March (most years) but it doesn't make the journey any less frustrating.  This stretch of road games could be a huge detriment to our season if Loving isn't reinstated.  I'll always be cheering the Bucks on, but I'm really looking forward to watching next year's team.
