-12 as of this morning.  

 

That is a big a$$ number.  My questions...Has NU quit?  Will a road game actually be good for them?  Will Watson have a big game finally?

This could get ugly. At this point I’d like to seem them just run and gun. Try for 90 points. Just jack 3’s and just run. They have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Agree!  Play free, have fun and not worry about what everyone thinks.

Yeah, so tough to do with no bench and Mackey is a house of horrors for most teams.

At this point the season over with another loss. The current way is no longer working and only getting worse, why not try something else. You know what they say about doing the same thing over and over expecting different results ?

Im sure you’ll have this wish partially fulfilled. The 2nd half offensive effort will be able to be classified as just jacking 3’s. Of course it will be bad 3’s with no rebounding like usual and they won’t be running at that point because we have no bench or at least none Miles will put on the court.

Gonna waste a pretty solid first half by going full Nebrasketball the last five minutes.  Bad bad shots by Nana and Palmer when opportunities to stretch the lead were there.  And of course the lack of an actual offense leads to forced, contested shots at the end of the clock that have no chance of being successful.  Add in crap transition defense and you give the Boilermakers momentum to build on at the half.

They run literally no offensive sets. Baffling 

I mean at this point it isnt.. Miles hasnt ever really run an offense.

 

He always plays hero ball.

The fact that Miles can’t see and utilize the mismatch with Roby on offense is just stupidity at its finest.

 

Call the damn TO Tim it’s getting ugly fast

Miles should be telling the team absolutely no 3 point shots and if you take one you will come to the bench. Give it up, we have terrible shooters. Have known this many games ago. So why and the hell do we keep casting them and waisting possessions? Palmer keeps coughing the ball up and is playing some terrible ball. He hasn’t looked like an NBA caliber player all year long. Timid, turnovers, poor shots, and even worse decision making.

Timmy can’t figure out a way to get Roby on the block against a guy giving up four inches

And the other guy is a ball passer at the top of the key that they don’t even guard.

Im curious is there a rule that miles has that says you can’t shoot a open shot before 5 seconds left on the shot clock ?

Unless your name is JPJ, he can do no wrong in Timmy’s eyes

Wow Allen. 4-4 from deep. Feed hm the ball.  Make that 5-5

Okay, that explains why this game is close!  I was sort of watching but not really and it seemed like NU kept making some big shots.

Miles needs to start TiVoing games and listen to what color guy says during the game.  Everyone sees the deficiencies of his team but him

I think a lot of coaches freak out about shooting fast.  

 

Not Brad Underwood though!!!!  They take tons of crappy shots in the first 7 seconds!!  Ha

 

Actually a lot of stats show that shooting in the first 7 seconds is the way to go if possible

I remember reading an article awhile back that Tim doesn’t want them to shoot it right away.  He wants them to work the shot clock and try and find an open shot.

A lot of it is pending on the offense you run.  Of course 99% of basketball coaches have offenses, we are just fortunate to witness that 1%

This opponent and our type of players calls for driving every time, then kicking out if necessary. You don’t see that much. Our big guy should be getting offensive boards on the back side, not ball handling for our NBA stars.

Afraid we’ve wasted too much time taking Ill advised shots for a comeback.

Have they even ran the zone on defense tonight?  The offensive pukefest has just muddled with the defensive effort for me tonight I haven’t noticed

I also love the lack of urgency this team has shown.  Games with around four minutes left and are still in a manageable deficit, and there is just no care.  

 

That falls on a coach as well.

I think they’re tired due to no backup play while Purdue has scrappy bench guys harassing us.

If they had NBA potential they wouldn't have come back.
