    At this point I’ll take John Groce N.I.T berths rather then 2 losing seasons in a row. I’m tired of copping pleas for mediocrity. Great coaches adjust there philosophies to benefit the team. Plus the season was over in December. So the young guys should’ve been playing period. I’m all for...

    I don’t get why people are upset with not getting a DC. Lovie may just feel he will have a better shot at coaching up and calling his defense his self. He gets to coach the defense up more closely. Lovie trust his system failure or success the defense falls on Lovie and only Lovie. I like that...

    Man no question the freshmen should play big minutes the rest of the season. Underwood needs to give these kids leadway to play and learn. Being on the bench is not helping!!!

    Honestly, the only way to be ready is to actually play meaningful minutes and be allowed to play through mistakes. 2 mins of game play want get you ready. Kipper has been ineffective. Shooting was badly needed. Last time I heard Alan Griffin can shoot. Give Tevian Kipper minutes period.Samba...

    Play the young guys. Griffin,Tevian, and Samba. Time to set the foundation for next year. Win,Lose,or draw. I’m tired of seeing hapless Kipper and ineffective De La Rosa.

    I’m not upset at Jeff Thomas for sticking with Miami. I’m just upset how he told a Illinois reporter he was coming less then 24 hours ago just to nut punch us and make us look like a joke on Twitter. Perception is everything.
