    Not sure I have been this upset with any sports game I have watched for some time…………….Crean drives me crazy………..I’m sorry but WHY???????????????

  • Anonymous

    Certain lineups work and certain line ups I can barely watch. Crean and I must see things so much differently. I want a lineup that MOVES! Some of these lineups are stagnant and they seem to stay in the game the most at the most Important times.

    Welcome to the club walton….I have not had these feelings watchin IU basketball since MD. I cannot understand the guy at all, I just want to scream…Where the HELL was Sheehey in the 2nd half….you know the guy you pledged to play more, the one who sparked you on both ends before the half……..

    Okay,

    I’ll keep this just limited to my negatives because I’ll have a lot of positives for TMA.

    1) Did Will Sheehey make a pass at Tom Crean’s wife on the way to the locker room at halftime?
    2) Verdell Jones can play for 33 minutes then he needs to sit out the last 7. At 6:20 Minny went up 2 and Jones decided he needed to take over. His next two possessions were a bad turnover and a forced bad miss. Outside of this he didn’t play terrible but the boy is a one man momentum killer. Minny scored on both those possessions and all the sudden we’re down 6-7 instead of 2.
    3) THAT WAS A FREAKING TERRIBLE CALL AT THE END OF THE GAME. THAT BALL WAS A 50/50 BALL AND JORDY EVEN HAD BOTH HANDS AFTER THE BALL WHILE HOFFARBER OR WHATEVER THE HELL HIS NAME IS WAS GOING AFTER IT WEAKER. THAT IS A LOOSE BALL THAT WASN’T CALLED A FOUL THE WHOLE GAME BUT TED VALENTINE IS ONE OF THE TWO WORST REFS IN COLLEGE BASKETBALL AND THE OTHER IS ED HIGHTOWER! I think since RMK is gone that the Big Ten has personally assigned one of those two refs to IU as much as possible to screw us over because these guys are a bafoons and should never be allowed to ref basketball games. They make some of the most inopportune, terrible calls that ruin games and this time it homered IU!

    Okay, I’m done. More to come on TMA and I have a lot of good thoughts after this game. I was initially thinking it was a choke job and NO MORE MORAL VICTORIES, but IU didn’t give up, hit a couple clutch threes and should have been allowed the opportunity to put up that three for the win . . . but alas, jackass Valentine was out there tonight and he’ll always find a way to screw IU!

    I think Sheehey must have made a pass at CTC’s wife on the way in at halftime. I have no idea why he didn’t play???

  • MillaRed

    I gotta agree with you guys. Coach is struggling. He really is.

  • MillaRed

    If you throw in the strange lineups you were dead on. I really don’t understand what he is seeing out there. Where…..in…..H….was Sheehey? He turned the game around in the first half. Very, very puzzling.

    It hurts to say this, but I said it in the chat, and I’ll repeat it here. I hate watching this team play. I’ve never said that about an IU team, but it’s true with this one.

    I like the players, but they just don’t play together very well. And when they do, it seems like we never see that lineup again.

    We have no identity, no consistency, no flow…etc. It’s just beyond frustrating.

    I FULLY AGREE WITH THESE COMMENTS, CREAN HAS LOST IT!!!

    WHY DID HE NOT CALL TIME OUT WHEN MINNY WHEN UP BY 5?

    WHY DID WILL NOT PLAY IN THE SECOND HALF, WHEN HE WAS KILLING IN THE FIRST?

    AND WHY DOES CREAN WANT WATFORD TO GET THE BALL ON THE LOW POST AT THE END OF THE GAME JUST TO GET BLOCKED AS HE DID ALL GAME???

    I DON’T KNOW GUYS BUT OUR COACH BETTER RECRUIT SO WELL HE GETS TALENT THAT DOESN’T LISTEN TO HIM AND JUST PLAYS, OTHERWISE THIS WILL BE A LONG 8 YEARS!

  • Kelin Oladipo

    Ace I did hear Sheehey found foot fetish tapes of Crean and got dismissed from the team at halftime.

  • MillaRed

    Maybe he was selling autographs with Devoe Joseph?

  • Kelin Oladipo

    Watching money drop the game show I have figured out IU’s situation and the answer to many of our frustrations…..I will unveil it during the minute after. Trust me it will make your ulcers go away, your heart beat normally, and those knots in your stomach feel a lot better….at least a little. Stay tuned.

    I have nothing against Watford – he’s one of the best we have and he has to be on the court the majority of the time for us.

    HOW ABOUT THE AWESOME LAST 30 SECONDS OF THE FIRST HALF PLAY?

  • Anonymous

    noticeable Watford bashing on here – however he is a top 5 player (or top?) on the team and should play the majority of every game for us. He’s not quite an NBA guy at this point, but he is one of our best and I want to see him out there.
