    Well so much for the opportunity Lynch’s absence may have provided.Lot being asked of JM….having to take on the “Beast” (Murphy),….likely to result in some foul issues. If Moore can’t see the floor in the game…something is wrong.

  • HoosierOne

    I like the idea of the younger guys getting more minutes at all positions. Time to grow up quick and breathe some new life into things. CH and JM are staples and should get max minutes but all other areas should be up for grabs. More in game conference reps will only help these boys become men.

  • This may force more guys to get playing time which could be a good thing down the road.

    Moore is in no way a backup for DD. He wants to be a stretch 4 or even 3, and has neither the temperament nor the frame to play low-post basketball. Granted, he may have to do what the team needs. But TP is frankly a better banger, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him get some minutes. Don’t get me wrong, I’d like to see what CM has to offer, but I just can’t see his role as being anything like DD’s. Archie’s gonna have to be creative with this one.

  • SCHoosier

    Didn’t say he WAS a back up. What he is is a 6-10 body with a jump shot. ..who has been coached by Archie for for 4 months. That ought to make him capable of a few minutes of relief work.

    I read that Lynch won’t be suspended till Tuesday- don’t know if true, but would seem typical of a Pitino.

  • Koko

    I thought I saw TP in street clothes at the Wisky game….is he hurt?

  • IdahoHoosier

    Yeah TP has been wearing a boot and not dressing for games. Not likely to see him. Probably going to see Moore and Smith playing big.

  • Missing Moye

    I just read a story where their AD Coyle said he won’t play Saturday.

  • Ole Man

    Yep. He took it out of Pitino’s hands; fortunately.

    Looks like we’re in for One More Red Nightmare. I have a feeling after tomorrow’s game Archie will be as hot as the Thela Hun Ginjeet. Let’s just hope we aren’t reading any Epitaphs come Sunday.

  • Googled it and was not disappointed.

    Dakich just stated that DeRon is out for the year. Is this true?

  • iufan

    Am I watching one of my middle school games by accident? This is one of the laziest most fundamentally flawed teams I’ve ever watched. Start all backups second half. They might actually try.

  • iufan

    Yep. Achilles.

    Damn! I’m sorry to hear that. Thanks for that iufan.
