    I don't get the handwringing over the substitutions? He phases in the subs, they're not all at once, though they are all on the court together for a short period of time. But it only happens in the first half, not the 2nd half. He's seeing who has it and who doesn't for a few minutes. Durr rarely plays in the 2nd half, and recently Bates doesn't either, with Geronimo just getting a few minutes. It's mainly Phinisee and now Galloway.

    I record most games and watch them later as well, not because of apathy but because I have 3 kids between elementary and middle school so our calendar is packed. But what I can't imagine doing is recording the game and then only watching it if we win. I avoid the score and then watch it later that day. Can't imagine spending 2 hours to watch a game that I already know the outcome of.

    Point Guard Play: 2021-22

    I've always heard Woodson say that Matta is in most, if not all of their meetings.

    That could be the case, but at some point you either have to get over it an ball...the clock is ticking on his career.

    He misses a ton of wide open catch and shoot 3's though.

    Point Guard Play: 2021-22

    I don't have any great insight here, other then the old Parcells line, "you are what your record says you are". Phinisee is in year 4 and has proven over that time that he is not a good shooter. He's a below 36% shooter overall and a below 25% shooter from 3. That is really bad. Can he turn it around the back half of his senior year here? Sure he can. But, I wouldn't expect it. We've been playing this "he just needs confidence game with him for 3 years.

    In Archie Miller's defense, I always thought IU was really good against zones the last 4 years.

    Two Grown Men at Guard

    That game changed when XJ came back into the game in the first half. He began pressure the heck out of their point guard and even denying him the ball. That's when IU's energy and effort, especially defensively changed.

    College Bball Thread

    I was in Maryland on Monday and listening to sports radio, the main gripe was Turgeon constantly playing small and sitting their bigs, when none of their guards/wings can shoot. Basically sitting some talented bigs and playing small with shooters that can't shoot. Sounds eerily familiar doesn't it?

    Agree, and then you also need to hope guys like Stewart, Kopp, Phinisee, XJ, etc., get hot and knock down a good percentage of those open transition 3's.
  11. Or was IU the first to publicly announce it?

    All 5 Gonzaga fans are all up in my replies. It's actually pretty sad, given the Henry Ruggs situation today. Imagine on a day where that news happens that you take to Twitter to vigorously defend a college coaches lame DUI suspension because he coaches your favorite team.

    Check this one out...She's looking for sympathy because Few might miss on a recruit because he had to miss their version of Hoosier Hysteria. Edit: I stole your self-awareness line later in the tweet, LIH

    College Bball Thread

    I made a similar tweet today off of the news of the Kansas player getting 1 exhibition game and 3 regular season games, and now all of these Gonzaga fan boys are in my replies arguing that there is no such thing as an exhibition and that Few got 3 games. Imagine having that take on the same day we find out an NFL player killed someone driving under the influence!?!? Click through and checkout the comments, it's crazy.

    I know, just messing with you. My wife went there too. My favorite win of my college career was a road game at IUP my senior year when they were ranked in the top 25 and 1st place in our division was on the line, and we went in there (they were a tough place to play) and got the win.
