    Most of the adjustment we need to just to make ******* shots. Coach ain't gonna fix that.

    I have to say our defense was acceptable to good first half. Aggressive, disruptive. We'll see if that keeps up.

    9 offensive rebounds but only 5 second chance points? That doesn't seem possible.

    Random comment here, but one of the worst parts of falling out of the top tier of the Big 12 is the announcers we get to do our games - or more specifically the color guys. Robbie Hummel sucks. I miss Fran.

    OK, now you have to stop exaggerating like that. We run 3 man weaves sometimes before the ball screen. Sometimes Bolton curls off the weave. And sometimes the drive to the bucket gets us a look at 3. If we could hit open 3s at a reasonable rate, I think we would be closer or win some of these games. We just can't shoot 3s well this year, that's the main difference folks. Great shooting covers up a lot of sins, reasonable shooting would make us quite a bit happier I think.

    We need a coach like Wayne Morgan I guess. A coach who doesn’t give all his players who can’t shoot 3s the green light to fire away as many as they want.

    I said it earlier and it also applies to this game, if we were an average or even slightly-below average 3% team, a bunch of our games look much different. And we'd be currently winning this one.

    Yes, stupid AND a foul and whistle swallowed like it usually is at the ends of halves (which I don't believe in, but have grown to understand it happens.) Except with our last game...

    Made the sweet 16 and two tournaments with Fred’s guys. Woefully underperformed the second year.

    Hasn’t beat a team in the tournament with a single digit seed.

    Has a last place finish and headed for another one this year. So 2 out of 3 years with his own guys.

    Team underperformed big time last year.

    Has a losing record in conference play.

    2-3 vs Fran.

    Been terrible in Hilton.

    I’m sure there’s more but that’s just off the top of my head.

    Well Christ, even our players who do occasionally hit them haven't got any today. We aren't gonna do well taking them completely out of the playbook against 5 condensed defenders, either. What do you even do at this point?

    Coaches should always make adjustments after seeing how their opponent plays, it doesn’t matter if it’s a tie game, or a 30 point game at half, because you know damn well that Beard drew up adjustments in the lockerroom.

    Just anFYI, I ran the stats and after that first half our team 3pt % dropped almost a full %. We are now at 30.8% (126/409) putting us at 289th in the country ( out of 350)!

    I know you won't like to hear it, but TL does move without the ball pretty well.

    Purdue would disagree.

    Totally agree with you. Not to mention historic beat downs in Hilton this year.

    Well no ****, but it still doesn't change the fact that our biggest adjustment is to shoot at an average level. Shouldn't be much to ask.

    This team sucks at shooting from long distance. So what do we do...continue to jack up 3s. Mind boggling.
