    uneblinstu's postgame chatter: Vol: 10; ed: 17 - @ Purdue

    Man, this feels like a missed opportunity...

     

    • There must have been more to the story on Cope's T. Not sure if something had been brewing, but it was a weak call.
    • NU have every chance to be in this game. Every time they had a chance to get back in the game and really make things interesting, they literally gave it away.
    • Glynn seemed to struggle today. Frankly, most of the back court did, at least offensively.
    • Roby did some nice things, I thought it was one of his better games, actually.
    • Purdue was allowed to be really physical in the perimeter today, especially early. Really harassed NU into a bunch of turnovers, which may have been the difference in the game.
    • That Haarms kid is skyrocketing up my most annoying player leader board.
    • I'd really like to see NU mix in the press more in the middle of games, not just when they're trying to make a miracle comeback. I'd like to see them ambush teams with it. It seems to produce results just about every time they use it. They don't need to do it a lot, just occasionally.
    • For a team with a dominant front court, NU sure dunked a lot.
    • Jordy didn't play in the 2nd half. He hasn't played much in a bunch of 2nd halves. Why is he still starting?
    • Tanner is solid, but he's got some nuances he's still figuring out. Had a couple chances to pickup some offensive fouls but didn't. I think he'll learn how to pick those up.
    • Thomas Allen going through a few of those Freshman blues?
    • For the second game in a row, the rebounding improved quite a bit after halftime. Let's see if we can get that figured out before the break next time.
    • NU shouldn't fear Purdue if they face them again. Hopefully they get another shot at them in New York.

     

    Alright, that's enough for now. Here's to getting back on track on Tuesday vs. Wisconsin.

    It’s conference play, it’s going to be tough to win on the road.  Physical play on defense is going to ramp up.  You have to play through it.  Look what West Virginia did to the OU kid tonight, he probably has bruises on his arms.  The officiating didn’t cost us this game.  Purdue had something to say about the outcome.  No game is going to be easy for this team, they have to be ready for an improving Wisconsin.  How are we going to stop Happ?

    I would say at this point we can aim for 5th place. 1 and 2 are locks. Michigan at 3. Maybe OSU at 4. We should be good enough to get fifth.

    Getting Michigan at home is huge. They follow it up with a game at Ohio St. That's gonna be a big couple of games, I think.

    time to go small in my opinion. our bigs are just not very good right now. roby should be starting and have been saying it for months. 25 minutes is not enough for him. i don't see why he can't play 35 min per game. edwards played 39 min for purdue.

     

     

     

    The problem is that Roby gets in foul trouble playing less minutes already. There’s no way he’d sniff 35 min. Too many dumb reach fouls

    Ever since the MSU game, we have played pretty well defensively.  We are allowing 71.1 PPG.  The teams we have played during that stretch have avg. 80.2 PPG during the season.

     

    Keep playing defense, and we should be able to take care of enough on offense to win a good majority of games.  We already played 2 of the toughest defenses in the Big 10 (MSU and PU)

    Ohio St is currently giving MSU the business at home. That is shaping up to be a signature win if we can win it type of game

    I'm not sure if I posted it anywhere, but they were my sleeper team at the start of the year. Ohio State has a lot of talent at the top of the roster, but depth is a concern. They're capable of nights like this. I'll be curious to see they can play this well vs. teams that aren't highly ranked, but they're certainly capable.

    Keita Bates-Diop is killing it. I wonder if Matta loses his job if he plays all of last year.

    If you look at Holtmann's last 2 years at Butler he basically had a similar one man show sort of lineup.

    It's possible we have a unique scouting advantage with Lewis onboard.

    For sure. I've watched a little bit of OSU this year and they haven't played nearly as hard as they did yesterday. If they can keep up that effort, they'll be tough to beat. I'm gonna bet they don't.

    *Palmer is good 

     

    *Jordy situation is sad; hard to watch.  Somehow, someway I hope he can start to contribute a little before the end of the season.

     

    *Evan has struggled two games in a row.  Hopefully coming back home will snap him out if it. 

     

    *Haarms is a huge douche.  

    I was happy when the Haarms kid took one in the seeds...

    I've decided not to post much this year because, well, let's be honest...great or greatest basketball team to wear red?

    That being said...a few thoughts.

    1) Isaac Copeland is now Isak Copeland. We do not need to pull the double AA stunt PU does

    2) speaking of Copeland. That.made.my.fwording.life. and it should this team. You fight hard as rabbit turds and you have these unlikable Space Jam monster looking dudes troll you. That was literally like any member of the toon squad dunking on the monstars without the special water.

    3) Purdue is good. But old good. So, let's play this out in a few years when everyone is retired and they have a tall db running the show

    4) Jordy didn't just fold into himself. We have options? We don't know optimal line ups? Sounds like bad coaching...but not really.

    Magic couch ride ladies and gentlemen. I'll start a gofundme for steppenwolf when we clinch top 4 in the league
