  1. I don’t know man. The lack of effort thing is just an excuse to me. How do you measure effort? Is there a measuring stick or something? The lack of effort talk started with the slow starts. Listen, I’m going to tell you why (again) the team was prone to slow starts. You can agree or disagree, but it will be out there. Start with an offense that was nothing. No movement, no goal, no attempt to get the ball to its best players in a position to score. The wrong people were taking shots. Every. Time. Most of those were late shot clock because the offensive scheme failed, not the player. Couple bricks later, it’s 10-0. Romeo probably hadn’t touched the ball and if Juwan shot, it was a 3. Again, wrong guy, wrong spot. Flawed lineups later on were caused by mounting injuries and a suspension. Mcbob, Fitzner, Damezi, Moore and Jake? Really? What was going to happen? On the other end, it was a scramble. Packline shmackline, it’s still fricken man to man and it’s still basketball. 2 guys can’t follow the handle on a simple ball screen bro. How many times in the first 4 minutes of a game? Tell me 5 and I’ll show you 10. Rebounding buried them to start, and finish games all season. Well hell, rebounding is all effort right? That must surely prove that the team was dogging it right? Bro’s, you played Michigan twice, Maryland, Nebraska, Ohio St., Minnesota, Purdue, Iowa and Duke. And those were just the games we lost...did we get out rebounded? Jesus Christ, of course we did, are you kidding? Talk about size disadvantage, shoot man, that’s mountains and mole hills. You can call losing games a lack of effort if you’d like, but consider for a moment another cause. Lack of talent. Lack of size. Lack of shooting. Lack of coaching. The last one hurts to say. I firmly believe there were undeniable coaching deficiencies that cost this team dearly. It’s hard for me to admit in print. I like Archie. I bet if you asked him though, he’d be the first to agree. It was not his finest job. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  2. Well, not terribly surprised. Open shots and free-throws again. Mix that with some poor passing, poor rebounding, and a pac-line defense that is incredibly susceptible to dribble penetration. Destined to finish with 16 losses. Was always going to happen, injuries or not. I somewhat agree with the statement “Have a single one and done, and you’re done”. Romeo Langford didn’t end up being the savior we all hoped for. The kid came in with absolutely impossible expectations. I lightly subscribe to the theory that his very presence created something of a power struggle within the team. His “having a different agenda” is bull crap though. I felt he gave his very best every day, and for a time, I thought he might just be that savior. I’d say it was more that him being the focal point created jealousy. I could see it in several players. Whatever Romeo decides to do (Brother, listen to me man, go get that money.) I wish him the very best. Sad to see both Juwan, and likely Romeo leave without getting a shot at the Dance. I truly hate it for both of them. So on to next year. Long summer, no recruitment to follow. Going to be checking in from time to time, to see if there’s any news or just for a quick chat. Good luck to you all. Better days are right around the corner. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Initially, I also called for an H+H review. The more I watched the replays however, I don’t think there was any intent to deceive the officials and it would have been difficult to say which player got the worst of it. For me, I say play on, with one caveat. Should it have been reviewed? Probably. If you are going to make a thing a point of emphasis the entire season, you can’t just suddenly go blind in the last couple minutes of a close game. What I’m saying is, with these emphasized rules, what is called a foul in November, is rarely still called in March. Even when it’s most important to do so. All that said, I still think this particular case was a play on. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

  7. Great move by Arkansas there bringing in Devonte Green to kill momentum with shot selection. He’s a really good player for them. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Not going to be able to watch. Recording at home. Just win. Play hard and win. I want nobody but Romeo, Juwan or rob to shoot in the first 3 min. Win rebound margin, win game. Simple. Let’s go Hoosiers! Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  14. This is going to give us grey hair. IU gets the go ahead score with under 10 to go. OSU runs a good play out of a timeout and gets a fabulous look at the game winner.......Clank. IU 74 OSU 71 Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    I’ll agree on the injuries. Anderson forced to play minutes he wasn’t ready for, mixed with other erratic lineups thrown together to see what might stick. All adds up. I was really looking for other viewpoints to calm my troubled mind. If guys like you and USPS tell me not to worry....then I don’t worry. Edit....I’d still say better just keep on winning though.
