    I've had SiriusXM for awhile, but didn't know it had a talk channel dedicated to the B1G on 372. I'll be listening a lot while driving Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    I really need to try to go to Champaign or Bloomington for a major College Track meet. I go to a lot of HS meets and watch any meets on TV. I have been to Eastern Illinois University for a couple meets. It's only a 30 minute Drive for me Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    But Hunter made a bad pass, so we just ignore the fact he helped build our lead and only talk about that poor decision.(sarcasm) Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Again its not that people are complaining about how we lost. I get that. What I don't understand and will never understand is many of those same posters who seem to only post after a loss do not or rarely post after a win. How many of those people would have posted had the collapse not happened or made multiple posts had the collapse not happened. Why can't they be happy when they win and acknowledge the win and praise players when they play well. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Too early to say. He is just getting his "legs" under him. Judging him on one game is dumb IMO Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    I see the negative posters are out in full force tonight. If only they would post this much after a win. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    It's why I don't get bent out of shape when my teams lose. In the end there are for more important things in life. That doesnt mean I don't want to win, or I am ok with mediocrity either.i just don't let it affect my emotions for days or even hours after a loss or win.I used to be one of those that was pissed about a loss for days. But losing loved ones to diseases, some of my fellow soldiers to war and having to live with a chronic pain disability that doesnt let me be the breadwinner in the house showed me I was was wrong being that way.

    And you know he won't how? Was he supposed to go down at halftime and tell them to straighten up? Lol. Maybe on this tour he is on, he will see it needs fixed. Give him a freaking chance. I hope he fixes it, but man talk about a hot take. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    They have proven to be the team that has defied the home court advantage in the B1G. 3 wins against Wisconsin, Purdue, and Michigan Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    And that doesn't address getting enough qualified volunteers to do everything. Do we only have the clock for Varsity level games? Or all levels? I keep the book or clock for every F/S home game and a lot of away games. I've ended up being the head score keeper or ran the clock at away games because they couldn't find someone to help.

    I understand what you are saying and I agree with you, but it isn't feasible because of the reasons i shared. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    It's not feasible. Many schools have a hard time finding enough competent volunteers to run the game clock, and stats panel. Now you want them to find someone else? Not to mention the upfront expenses that some schools can't afford Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    I didn't watch IU play live last night because the Wooden Shoes played in the Salem Illinois Invitational Tournament against Thorton factional High School. This is the same school that produced IU's Quinn Buckner almost 50 yrs ago. It wasn't a pretty offensive game for either team, but we came away with a win. Tonight we play our cross county rivals Effingham for the second time in 3 weeks in the semifinals at 8 Central time. If you get a wild hair and would like to see small town Basketball with no D1 prospects but play with a lot of passion and heart, this should be a very good game. It can be seen on Wabash Catch TV West on YouTube Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    My biggest problem isnt that they are negative. It is that they are negative all the time. They will make sure they post numerous times in a game thread when we lose that game. They rarely, if ever, post in threads like this one. At least the sunshine pumpers will post in most, if not all, game threads. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Justin may have been inefficient offensively, but I thought his defense and rebounding were good. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    I watched the game, when I got from the Wooden Shoes' game. I didn't know who won because I stayed away from Social media. I thought this was their best game of the season.did they make mistakes? Yes they did. They did not let those mistakes compound and let them become the norm. They bounced back. I don't mind mistakes when that happens. Very few, if any, games are perfect. My favorite comment I heard was everyone who played had at least 1 rebound and Scored. For the most part they all played well, but I thought Brunk, Thompson, and Phinisee played the best. Hopefully they realize they can play at a high level when they want too. Hit your FTs. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
