    Purdue at Indiana Game Thread - 7:00pm ESPN2

    I completely agree with the tourney being about guards. However, you don’t see the trash basketball that is the Big Ten basketball. You won’t see Edwards being able to grab a player with both hands to stop him from cutting. You won’t see Haarms grabbing or bumping cutters without a foul. What the Big Ten allows and what is allowed in the tourney are night and day. I applaud the Big Ten for not having as many programs caught up in the scandal (that won’t result in much) but they get a big fat F in the style of basketball. I love IU and college basketball but if I’m a top player that could go anywhere I’d find it tough to play in the Big Ten. It’s just not a modern day version of basketball. I would love for IU to have the reputation of a Michigan, Wiscy, MSU, or pu where the refs just stop calling fouls. It happens almost every game. pu had 5 fouls in the first five minutes and then they just suddenly stopped fouling even though zromeo was still being held, Morgan was being bodied, and our other guards were getting hacked. Their big hit Romeo’s arm and body before getting the ball. That’s a foul almost every time in a different league. In the Big Ten, that’s a big moving his feet so well and getting a hand on the ball. Freedom of movement isn’t allowed in the Big Ten and it’s a detriment to the league. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    The college game changed a few years ago to not allow the bump, grab, shove of cutters. It works for awhile and then the Big Ten loves them some trash basketball and reverts back to the old. The “can’t call all the fouls” defenses of Wisconsin and purshit reign supreme. I wonder how those teams will perform in the tournament. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    It’s a ******* joke but the Big Ten loves its “toughness” mantra. It doesn’t play in today’s game. Michigan has been the best representative of Big Ten basketball in the tourney recently and they don’t play that garbage. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    I mean, if you’re a lottery pick would you want to play in the Big Ten? Romeo just spent a few hours having Eastern draped all over him getting called for a foul once for every 5 committed. You don’t get that in other conferences like this. How do you go to cut and get two hands pulling on you from the defender but nothing gets called? That’s good, hard Big Ten defense. I’m sick of this horseshit conference and what they consider basketball. How does Romeo get an elbow to the face on a non basketball play and they don’t even think about looking at it?!

    Go watch other conference games and you won’t watch this crap that seems to happen several times a week in the Big Ten. I love the Big Ten. As much as IU needs an overhaul in the administration the Big Ten needs one. How is Eastern’s elbow catch Langford in the mouth and they don’t go to look at it? That tip in to win the game? JMo can’t jump up to get a rebound with Haarms on his back. They missed JMo’s goaltend on a layup. Edwards calls his own fouls in the first half. I’m sick and tired of watching the **** show that is Big Ten basketball. **** Bo Boroski too. Dude is absolute trash. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    Edwards whines because he didn’t get the call. I fear he’ll be calling his in the second half. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    Purdoodoo benefiting from the “cant call them all defense.” We had a 5-0 foul advantage and then the refs decided pu wouldn’t foul again. I love the Big Ten Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    Watch Eastern defending Romeo, when Romeo goes to make a move Eastern grabs with both hands. How the hell can you get open when someone is holding you back? “This is fantastic defense.” -refs Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    Notorious for this but they’re “fundamental” so it’s not a foul Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    That’s assuming nothing else is added in 2019 though. I find that difficult to believe. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    Guards and small wings are pretty much the same outside of point guards. Al and Phin can handle that and we’ll have a stable of small wings. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Errr, it’ll be a “quad 1” loss for pu. I’m just hoping Smith doesn’t get mushroom stamped by Carsen Edwards and jogs back down the court like he’s on a stroll down 10th street. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    That would be a ton of guards on the roster in 2020 though.. Sr - Durham Jr - Phin, Anderson So - Franklin Fr - Leal, Galloway That’s not counting any of the other guards we’re after. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Can a leader emerge for next year?

    He'll never be able to take 5 thugs at once but if he could get angry at some of his teammates for "going through the motions" that would help.

    WBB vs #23 Rutgers 2/18 on BTN!

    Why does Rutgers do anything besides through it in the post. They could shoot 50 FTs in the 4th alone. We're very "loose" with the ball.

    I think you need to get down from those trees and get on some sturdy ground.
