Virtually every player has made a contribution to this blunder-filled half. Let's hope the blunder pot is empty now. Worst 20 minutes of basketball I have seen from this team. It is all between the ears. Can it continue? Sure it can...but will it? Stay-tuned and watch a very pivotal 20 min. in this team's legacy.

hummel is correct, we are the most talkative team in the BIG.
LOL at citing Hummel as your example. And how the hell are we talkative than anyone else in the BIG or college basketball for that matter. Give me a break with this nonsense.

We need to figure somethin’ out. Good news is that the talent is there, and there is a whole half to make up ten points - totally winnable. Bad news is that we aren’t down because we’re cold shooting or in foul trouble ... we look off.

Regroup in the locker room and come out with that killer mentality!

For me, someone is rapidly losing their Curb Appeal. Idiotic mistakes are far outweighing good plays again this game. Does he just not take coaching, or what is the issue?
We can't trust him in pivotal or pressure situations yet. Hopefully in the future we can, but right now the officials are looking at him alot with traveling/carrying. You don't see hardly anyone in the B10 called for either but he is almost every game

Announcers just said we are 0-12 in layups. I would say not all were layups but they were close shots

Hummel has usually been right, and it's true; it's fun when we're winning, but a pretty bad look when halves like this happen

I know he does it every game, but subbing 3 minutes into the game when we started strong was a bad move. Things went south in a hurry and we haven’t recovered. Exactly the kind of game I feared. Physical, get Kofi in foul trouble and give them confidence. The defense will have to step up big time in second half to have a chance.

We've missed a lot of easy shots we normally make (0-12 on layups!) and they are shooting out of their minds. We're not getting any calls around the basket either. We'll be fine - MSU is not good enough to run away and hide.

This is a game where Curbelo should sit the whole second half unless we have foul trouble. We don't need him today to be brutally honest.

We are down because of cold shooting (24%) and foul trouble (Kofi)
