Well he doesn't have to be in either, I'm just saying it's what he needs to fix.

The time out Groce made during our run ruined any chance we had of coming back. What a terrible move.

Tate hasn't been in the game in 10 minutes. The score may say the Illini are losing, but that is a victory.

I didn't like it either, but there were some decent posts in this thread rationalizing the call. Could have gone one way or the other.

I know. I can't believe he drew up an inbound play where we just hold the ball and get a 5 second call.

Do you not think 67 is much better than 50 (and lower after 2-5 today)...

Not saying TJL shouldnt be playing bc of this (he needs WAY more minutes) but yes he has been that much worse on that metric alone.

Imagine if TJL played more sooner... It's not like he would have lead us to a worse performance at Maryland, where our guards were outscored 41-6! I'm excited to watch this recorded game despite the loss due to the minutes for the new blood. The vets, God love em, they dont got it.

I heard he actually let Tate draw that one up.

That ones in my playbook too. Usually the one I call when my team really needs a score

Probably give up a 100! Again to IU. These kids just can't play defense. It shows you how good ray rice and Egwu were at defense. Grove teams had been good at defense. These kids just don't have it.

Still all connected to Malcolm's early foul trouble. Nothing doing on offense. Missed shots lead to easy opportunities.
