I’d really like to see Grandison start next game. He is a big body who hits 3s, gets rebounds, and had two beautiful feeds to Kofi tonight.Underwood is heated.. I'm glad he is.. He is ready to figure something out.. Someone won't be starting against Penn State
I wonder what changes. Not sarcasm. Really would like to see some shakeup but no idea what. Can’t bench Kofi. More GB minutes? Start grandison over DMFW? Maybe. Start Curbelo? I think we can shelve that idea. Truly a perplexing team.Boy, BU was steamed. I feel like a majority of his fire was directed right at Kofi and potentially DW and Curbelo. Maybe I heard his tone wrong or am reading too much into it? He made a point of mentioning Miller, Frazier and Grandison as positives. He made a point to say that Ayo carried his weight.
The direct comments were at Kofi(free throw shooting, dealing with contact, bringing the ball down, etc.)but after watching the games that they had, going back to the Maryland game.....I see changes in the future.
That was probably the most irritated as I've seen him in a post game.
We lost so this is going to sound off because we don't have the deliverable, but we ARE a mentally tough team. That second half comeback was all pride and grit. It just wasn't enough to compensate for the enormous hole we put ourselves in. If a call or two goes the other way or we hit one more 3 and they miss one more 3, all we would be talking about is how gritty and tough this team is. We lost because we weren't prepared at the beginning of the game and the ball had eyes for OSU.Guys, I am an optimist to my CORE. I will be right back on Tuesday talking about how a win vs. Penn State could get us on a nice little winning streak. With that said... How could there even be ONE poster left making excuses?! Losing like we lost today is infinitely more frustrating than just losing by 10. Someone in the game thread said that last year's team was better than this year's, and it wasn't close; I am going to have to agree. While I knew that last year's squad was unlikely to blow out Minnesota or Nebraska or Northwestern at home, I also knew that they were rock solid and tough - it would be rare that they didn't come out with pride and effort. To let these huge leads grow on us is M-E-N-T-A-L. I am sick of hearing about some guy having a career day and how BU can't make FTs for our guys or whatever other excuse there is. You can explain away anything in a relatively close loss if you want to, but it takes someone in denial to not see the trends. If we lose to Penn State, any hope of a top four seed and a serious Tournament run just might be over. And ~making the Tournament~ or ~being ranked~ or any other "achievement" that might have seen elusive last year is simply NOT GOOD ENOUGH for this year's team. Period. Such a disappointing game.
