  1. We don't have any depth, so guys get mentally fatigued, if not physically. As a result, they commit silly fouls and make mental errors. We are aren't physical inside so we give up a lot of offensive rebounds and commit fouls. In my mind, these are facts that lead to exactly the type of results we've seen. I think we're still a good team and we'll make the tournament, but I never thought we had a chance of winning the BIG or even finishing top 3. The depth and rebounding issues prevent that. I don't buy the crap about the players not caring. That came from a coach who apparently would prefer to blame his players than look in the mirror.

    HHCC Game #17 - at Indiana (Jan. 14, 5:30 PM CST)

    NU 81 IU 67 I thought I'd predicted a loss earlier, but can't find it. Today's mood swing leads to a win prediction.

    Clemson-ass Teams..

    Is this thread supposed to be Clemson-ass, or should it be Clemson-esque? So like "Get your Clemson-ass turnovers out of here!" Or "The way they turn the ball over is Clemson-esque? Asking for a friend who's been wondering for two days.

    Didn't Seton Hall already have two Myles on their roster? No wonder he left, he was Myles away from playing time.

  6. Good news, but now I have to edit my prediction again.

    He's obviously good, has tons of offers, but that level of competition is underwhelming. Those kids at the other schools must wish he'd just leave the state.

    Are a couple of our guys really snake bit?

    OK, I'm going to say it: There's entirely too much time spent complaining about bad calls. We are currently TENTH in nation in fewest fouls. (Michigan is No. 1). https://www.ncaa.com/stats/basketball-men/d1/current/team/286 So, in fact, you could argue that one of the reasons we're having a good season is we don't get called for that many fouls. Our lack of depth means we simply can't afford even 1 of the big 4 to get in foul trouble, but they play a lot of minutes, so they're often mentally fatigued and make costly mistakes. So while that magnifies the importance of fouls, we're simply not getting called for more fouls than everybody else. Roby is called for a lot of fouls because he fouls a lot. You can quibble on some of them, but he fouls a lot. He reaches and he bumps guys moving through traffic. JPJ barrels into the lane regularly and draws contact. Yeah, he gets charges but he also draws A LOT of fouls. It's a risky thing to do, but more often than not it works and that's why he was All BIG.

    I'm surprised by the number picking (them) on the prediction thread. Really think we're going to lose? Or just hoping not to jinx us?
  10. Lack of depth remains our biggest weakness. Tired guys get beat off the dribble, reach and pick up fouls and lose their legs on jump shots. It's not all physical either, sometimes a guy just needs to be taken out to refocus. We all like our backups individually and hope they improve, but collectively it's a weak bench.
