    Nope, said nothing even close to that. Sounds pretty silly.

    I said one team got called for 13 fouls and the other got called for 21, which isn't a crazy disparity. Not sure what you expect the refs to do - call some non-existent fouls on Iowa until the free throw attempts are more evenly balanced?

    I knew the big 12 was down this year, but didn’t realize it was this far down. So far in Big 12 play he is averaging 12 points a game on 37% shooting. I know he is a really good player, but I think he will have round back into form in order to being named an all conference player at the end of the year. He isn’t there right now I don’t think.

    Not being petty, just the truth, fouls called mean nothing, it how many times you get to the line and what you do after you get there. To say that it did not make a difference is foolish. One of the reasons that the Michigan coach was complaining about it. Just like Fran would of if the numbers had been switched.

    I would take Kriener over Young and Nixon and would take McCaffery over Nixon.

    You do realize we’re only slightly over 20% through the conference season right? In half of the 4 conference games so far he’s faced the 2 best defensive teams in the Big 12. His ppg will definitely go up.

    You’re the one saying that Garza isn’t the best player in the state with nothing to back it up at this point. If Garza keeps this up he might win the Naismith Award.

    He's trying to troll the Big 12 assist leader. He's not doing a very good job

    I agree, but that is why I was asking right now if he was an all conference player. I think he gets there, but he isn’t there now.

    Garza and Haliburton are two of the best players in the country. It's not like I'm saying Jacobson is better than Garza

    He thinks Connor is good even though he can't score

    Halliburton has some talent for sure, he just needs to stop being so passive and taking too many long 3's out there.

    Good shooter for sure. That % could be even higher.

    I said he plays solid in his role. He didn’t do anything to hurt the team last night and only took two shots (one of which was a hilarious attempt to do a posterized dunk on two Michigan defenders). He knows what he is supposed to do and does it solidly.
