    DChoosier reacted to LamarCheeks in Men's Big Ten Tourney Thread: Predictions and Discussion   
    I'm to the point where I just want to see us win a game. For some reason, we suck in the B1G tourney. When's the last time we won a game there! And it's usually in Indy or Chicago, where we have terrific fan bases. 
    Last year's game still chaps my a$$ -- after a relatively mediocre regular season, with our Quad 1 wins, we had a still chance to play our way into the NCAAs with a B1G win or two. And we totally didn't show up against OSU. Well, not until the final five minutes or so. 
    That game and this season's Toiletmakers game at home -- when RMK returned -- are the most disappointed I've been in this team during Archie's tenure. I don't even care about getting humiliated by Indiana State or Fort Wayne. The OSU tourney game and the PU game at home really, really meant something -- and we just didn't show up. Acted as if we didn't even care.

    On Dan Dak’s show Fish said that in some games the network controls the replay and in others the school does. In the Illinois game it was Illinois personnel that controlled the replay for this game.
    Fish went on to say that he could see the replay monitor and that it showed the elbow being thrown but when the refs came over to take a look the UI employee (or whoever UI pays to run it) showed the refs the replay three times but each time stopped before the elbow was thrown. The refs asked if there was anything else to see and the replay guy said no. Fish was beside himself and the refs never saw the elbow. That dude needs to be fired. 
    I hope IU takes this to the league.

    Two good offensive possessions, with a good defensive stop in between, for IU.

    So, we all agree that we like good players? Is that what we're arguing about?

    Look at IU's last 3 banner teams. All 3 had a man to get his own, May, Alford, Thomas...but all 3 teams played within the framework of the team concept. The players understood their own role and played to their, and the team stenghths

    I really don’t know what to say to all of this. Honestly you just don’t understand what people are saying. Nobody has ever said a player can’t get his in a team ball environment. That’s you making that assumption. Of course you need alpha players to win. This just goes to show the difference in understanding and why we are where we are. We as fans here who are old enough to know want a system in place that gets the team playing cohesively on a regular basis. Teams you have listed have done that. Coach K, Bennett, and Wright don’t have plays that’s say go get yours. They run sets. They run plays to get their best players in a position to succeed. You can twist what people have been telling you, but this is all they want.
     
    Edit: even iso plays there are screens to create mismatches. But whatevs
