Class of '66 Old Fart

IUBB vs Northwestern - 12/1 @ 1:00 ET

Recommended Posts

I have never seen a #5 recruit out of high school utilized as little as Romeo has been!  Is the gap between #3 and #5 that big?  It looks like it this year. 

Fellas, we are cursed by the general, and it is never going away.  Anybody that thought the Redsox or Cubs had it bad,  ain't seen nothing yet.

This is very wrong. There is usually a big man every year in the top 5 who gets underutilized at whatever school he goes to. You could argue both Bol Bol and Cam Reddish In just the 2018 class are used less than Romeo.

Yes, Romeo needs more looks. And yes, he should get even more looks if Morgan is down.

But the notion that he’s not being utilized is incorrect.

RP is not giving us much at PG the last few games. Today 3 pts with 1 assist and 2 TO's. 1-4 FT's. Yip about Smith all you want but his line was not bad. We need better PG play along with another scorer.

RP is a frosh with a lot riding on him. Not giving him an excuse.  JS has been horrible this year, no excuse.  All around this team has to get better.  Where is the tenacious D that we saw the first 8 mins. of the Marquette game?

Romeo's biggest problem, might be what we all like about him, his demeanor.  He needs to have that killer instinct when he is on the floor. You can be humble when you aren't playing, but you have to have "it" when the lights go on!

*this* is actually very wrong. Sorry. 

Reddish and Bol both have higher usage rates than Romeo.

Ah you are correct thank you. By the end of the year Romeo will be higher than each though. My main point was that I don’t think he’s being as underutilized as is being discussed

I mean, Nassir Little was ranked in the top 5 and he's only playing 19.6 minutes a night and hasn't started a game yet.  I'd like to see Romeo involved more too but I don't think this can be put on the coaching staff. If he was a post guy who needed the ball fed to him then that would be one thing, but he's a perimeter player. He should be able to get himself more involved.

I agree. And I don’t think it’s an Archie problem, he just doesn’t attack as much as he could. He’s the type that can score just about whenever he wants. With or without Juwan, it’s going to come to the point where he’s going to need to sack up and start destroying people. He’s for sure getting his right now though.

Watched on delay due to baseball practice.... gonna comment first then read the thread....

Smith needs to see a LOT more pine time... nothing about his game makes me smile. 

Green on the other hand is absolutely CLUTCH.... great crisp passes... timely shots... pressure defense...

On post-game with Fisch, Archie couldn't elaborate on Juwan.  Said he hadn't talked with Tim Garl.

How is that even possible?

I don’t believe it. After the game ended he did not even ask Garl “how does it look”?

So, do we need to add Juwan to the injury update thread. I didn't see the game, what happened to Juwan??

Looked like he bumped shins with a Northwestern player, tried walking it off and then they helped him off the court. When they showed him on the bench it didn't look like the staff was looking at his knee, so that's a positive
