me too.  Pops up when I click to come to the site in general.  Before, I had to click an article on the site to get the consumernews thing.

Yep.  Agreed.  Ball was out.  Bosa took at least 1 more step and then launched himself.  I throw the flag, but understand the other side.  I'm sure that was not the only missed call of the game.

I probably would have thrown the flag too.  But exactly as you point out, the one ref that mattered and that had the best view did not throw the flag.  The only things that count as penalties are the ones that the refs call - everything else is just part of the game.

It's too bad the zone wasn't working for us.  It would be a decent defense to allow us to play small.  But if we're in man to man, we're going to need a big body.... and honestly, Amir is the best big defender we have, although Lee makes up for it by his offensive production a bit.

I heard he's going to play LB in our new 3-5-3 system.

You also have to consider that we shot 62% and IU turned over the ball 15 times (almost twice as much as we did).  I don't want to take anything away from the win, but it really was an anomaly when you combine a great shooting game for us, poor ball handling from IU, and the luxury of playing a team that has no big man.

We are going to need someone taller than 6'6" to step up and give us the ability to play against teams that play with a true 4 or 5.  I don't care what his or her name is.  We're not going anywhere unless we find some serviceable post play.  This win was a great coaching move by Matta, it was a game won because of his strategy to play small because we his exploited this luxury against a smaller IU team.  It will not work against teams with big guys.
