    uneblinstu’s postgame chatter: vol 14; ed 14 - vs. Ohio State


    Defensive energy is good

    Rebounding is still rough, but seeing a bit more effort  there too. Ed had a beauty. Maybe the best of the year. 

    Still like the offense better with Kobe in there

    Body language seems better over what it was a few weeks ago. That’s good. 

    That weave play where Walker came wide open was nice!

    Feels like Fred calling plays and them having less freedom is the right call for this year. 

    To only be down 2 at halftime and OSU hitting four more threes than NU is pretty fortunate 



    The guy at halftime came out super aggressive. that’s probably a lesson to future contestants. 


    It was nice to see Bryce get back to making some plays. 

    Despite his growth, Ed does get lost sometimes, leaving things wide open behind him for a lay-in or rebound 

    Then the layin to tie the game may have been the best finish of the season for him. I think everyone in the building thought Bryce was going to take the three. 

    Did a better job of getting to the line tonight. That’s how they stayed in the game. 

    Looks like they got some things right in the break. 

    The play to go up 5 on the Lat slam was a gem! (But he’s gotta get back! OMG)

    How long did Verge sit the second half? Seemed like the last 15 minutes at least. That was interesting 

    Brutal misses from Lat. he’s had a pretty good

     game for the most part today, but that stung. Really needed that thing to end on regulation 


    Overtime: ugh. Damn


    Creighton, NC State and tonight give me hope this team can compete.I saw long stretches of the team I expected to see more of this year. But the guy punches need to come to an end at some point… Getting Trey back will help a lot.

    I was there and thought I was going to throw up.  That one hurt because it was ISU, whoM I hated in basketball

    I defiantly rushed the court for that one...

    Here's a theory:

    The cratering in Michigan, Auburn and Kansas St. games is the direct result of false rumors that distracted coaches and players--all of them.

    The false rumors told of multiple rules violations, a terrible influence by a coach (who took a leave of absence), and the impending termination of the entire coaching staff.

    Those rumors ultimately resulted in nothing on the publicity front:  no expose', a return to the bench of the maligned coach, and a partial return to normalcy. 

    But the immediate effect of those rumors on the coaches and players and the performance of both was, undoubtedly, massive.  Imagine, each one of us, if we faced such malignity in our own workplace and home lives--we'd be devastated.  To expect less from public figures like these coaches and players is unrealistic.

    Who knows what the rest of this season holds.  Hopefully, their expected potential (without Banton, without Trey for a while, without Wilhelm) can be reached.

    But the failure of fans to acknowledge the reality and validity and effect on performance of malignant, malicious and vicious rumors perpetrated by foes and friends, alike, is disappointing.


    I think the Michigan/Auburn stretch had to deal with the illness running through the team.  Still, shouldn't lose by 30 to an average Michigan team.

    On top of that he may be the worst dribbler in college basketball and a D+ defender at best. 

    Yeah and especially at his length and size, it's inexcusable that he's a horrible defender. So many smaller players are much better defenders. It comes down to effort,  but when you win the physical lottery? It's shameful to waste that. Maybe that's why people expect so much from him. Maybe he's just not cut out for basketball if he's not willing to sacrifice and effort his defense

    Little late to party and cant remember situation but could Lat had been in in case the guy missed 2nd FT?  I could see that being the case.

    I believe they made a 3 and called TO.  We had a 2 point lead with the ball.  Could have subbed someone then.
