    Serious Question

    After each disappointing loss, I stew for a short period, but then come to my senses and remember we just fired a coach and hired a new one. I believe that Woody is trying, but he has to learn how to be a college coach. He previously made a comment that kind of worried me just a little and I hope he changes his tune as time goes by. The comment was basically that this is his team and its his way. I think he is going to have to step back a little from that and let the assistants have a little say. My other sobering thought is that our roster still has 11/17 players from the previous regime! That regime was 12-15 last season, I didn’t expect them to be world conquering this season, nor should anyone else. We have won games this year that the previous regime would have folded up and cashed in a loss. Our defense and yes our offense have improved no matter how small of a difference. Now get to work on the mental part of the game! No reason to play different on the road, the mantra of not losing at home it’s our house should carry over to road games, because for that day that is your home! Once the team face a little adversity they clam up and forget the basics! It was overly evident with the zone press last night and not just with the guards. No one came to help them up the floor in any of the trap situations. They stood there expecting that Rob, X, or Race could get the ball past half court. In normal circumstances they probably would be able to break the zone, but for some reason no one could see the path up the middle of the floor with outlets on each side of the court once you got near half court. If the guards would have pushed the ball instead of slowly walking up the court to start, they would have easily broken down Iowa’s defense and likely had several easy buckets. Got to get out of their own heads and just play the d@mn game. Will we make the tourney? No one knows, but I am still going to watch each and every game and enjoy the fact that we can watch basketball. Love the game, love our team, love most of the fan base ( minus some of the idiots on Twitter)! Go IU and let’s beat the shiitake out of Nebrasketball, then PUrdouche!

    Let’s win one tonight for recon (me), I’ve made to 5 games this year, planned on a few more, but now my back is completely out. I guess I’m getting old as my back went out while sleeping. Nothing like a 37 yo walking with a cane like an 80 yo. Probably going to have surgery this time, hard to believe it’s been 14 years since I hurt my back in Iraq!

    Not sure if it’s due to COVID restrictions or not but there is hardly anyone at the G-Town v Bulter game. Hell there was more at assembly for the girls team!

    Just saw that Holtman and another assistant are in health and safety protocol and will not be there for THE Ohio State vs Northwestern! I hope they were not anywhere near any of our players or coaches!
