    We have to be the worst team in the country when it comes to last possession of the half. Dribble the clock down to nothing and either throw up a prayer or turn it over

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see Kane transfer he can’t get off of the bench. I could never understand why he didn’t get some time against Harms when we had no answer for him. At least his height may have caused him some problems

    When the other teams is shooting 15 more shots than you are you’re gonna lose pretty much every time. Getting pounded on the boards and they are shooting layups

    Ever since AD started to step up Frazier has disappeared. They can’t both play well in the same game for some reason

    When Ohio State started pounding it inside to start the second half the whole game changed. We get pounded on the boards in the second half every game

    The strength of this team is supposed to be the guards and right now that’s not happening. Hopefully it gets better with experience

    As much as I hate to say it we will underdogs in every Big Ten game this year I think. However I do feel things are heading in the right direction. This team right now just lacks size and experience

    I don’t see how you can expect these same players to be that much better next year

    I think whether we can contain Ward will bee the key to the game, he is a load. He killed Wisconsin

    Will Groce never learn that Hill is not a point guard? We do the same damn thing every time and it always ends the same way. Sounds like the definition of insanity to me

    When Groce took over I remember him saying assist to turnover ratio would be a point of emphasis, when is the last time anyone remembers that being brought up??
