Spoiler: we're not.Onto the real tournament. Just haven't been enough good moments this year for me to get too excited about our chances. But hey, "We're built for March!"
NO EFFORT WHATSOEVER! What is the coaching staff thinking? 2 PENN State in foul trouble, nobody fouls out. For the talent Illinois has, they laid an egg this year! Please lose the next game!I'm not angry, but I am disappointed. Should not lose to a sh*t team like that. Bad matchups, but we didn't take advantage of our strengths - we're a bigger team, but didn' take advantage.
Only silver lining I can find is that what we’ll lose in talent, we might gain in continuity/leadership? The transfer experiment is just not it, we never had a “rock” during hard times … and that’s the difference between a 4-seed and a 9-seed, quite honestly.Unless we make some noise in the tourney, this season was a huge let down. Lots of questions and concerns right now.
I don’t think this at all the norm. But, we really need a point guard. In the worst way.I actually don’t think we played that bad today but Penn State is just better. Better coached, run better stuff, and play the game smartly.
Eh what can you do? It’s been a mediocre season. Individuals are greater than the sum of the parts. Let’s hope this isn’t the norm but it feels like seasons like this are the norm unless another Kofi comes in.
