HUGE WEEK for BOILERS 

Cannot lose at home to OSU.    Greedy of me to think we will walk into Breslin and come away with a win.   I would be very happy with 1-1 split, but man if we can go 2-0.............

UGH::    Still Love my Boilers, but haven't played well as of late, finally bite them.   Rebounding issues that usually get masked by good 3 pt shooting.   

Onto to Michigan St.

That one was a bad one.  No doubt about it.  

They looked mentally tired, which led to poor execution on both ends against a very bad Wisconsin team.   Worst part is we lay an egg on Frank Kamisky night.   Him and Happ are my 2 want to throat punch players in Badger history.   UGH>   

However, I am NOT about to jump off the train, like many of these so called Boilermaker fans that I saw just ripping away in fiercely and may I personally add embarrassingly so. 

I understand some frustration from last night.   But acting like this team is going to lose every game moving forward is a bit much for this meat head

just in a funk right now:  Last night, it looked to me that they were very mentally fatigued.   They have been together ALOT since summer, I know Painter has tried to steal rest all season, but playing overseas for USA, Bahamas trip and rattling off the 19 straight with extra media attention, you put that all together, you get what looked like a very mentally tired team.   Usually when that happens, you would like to think the SR laden group would be able to get out of that funk last night, and they did from like the 11 min mark to the 6 or so minute mark, they played focused and hard defense, got stops, got to the foul line and got the lead back up to 7 or 9 points.   THEN, they fell back into cruise control and Wisconsin hit shots, Happ destroyed us with his rec league moves and rest is history.  

Mental fatigue cherry on top, had to be Haas fouling down 3 after wisconsin worked the clock down under 10 on shot clock and Haas out of nowhere comes and hugs Happ....... Dumb on so many levels.   

I don't believe Crean should of gotten fired, good coach, better recruiter, he was fun to poke at with his antics, but he and Painter are not clueless.   

The fire Painter mob is dumb on thousand levels.

LOVE ZO:   HOWEVER

come back to me when he wins something of significance.  

He does have that CIT title in 2010 however, but got to sweet 16 in Tennessee before getting ran out.  Had 2 NBA players at Cal and got bounced by a 13 seed round 1 there.  Year 2, NIT bound.  

He did make a nice move hiring Porter's dad on staff to get him to Mizzou, but injury derailed his 1 and one year.  

So HARD PASS at this time,

It appears that Purdue has a MUCH bigger problem staring them in the face that could end Painter's time there.

So you are not worried that Purdue was one team of several that was mentioned in the latest findings in the FBI investigation?

Even not being a fan, I hope you are right (but this is the FBI, not the NCAA investigating); this investigation could really change the game......and before all is said and done; even though something like 32 other programs have been mentioned, this is a LOT more widespread than any of us want to think.

no doubt about it pal, I just fully believe that MP is a guy who refused to go down that rabbit hole.   I hope he/PU doesn't break my heart. 

 

What a gritty performance last night, losing VE day before, and taking on a red hot PSU team.  So happy to get the W!!!    Penn St will be handful throughout the rest of the year and scary next year.  Carr is so tough!!

I'm legitimately worried for IU as well for the time Ken Johnson was an assistant under Tom Crean and the recruitment of Noah Vonleh  ...... Not that I believe Crean activity participated and recruits like Zeller and Ferrell ever took money but Crean could barely control the players inside his program let alone assistant coaches and I could see some deal being struck

First wave survived ... This article from Yahoo Sports seems to be pretty sweeping and all encompassing.  Neither Purdue or IU are mentioned.  I doubt that means the smoke is clear, as there are other heads besides that will probably roll, but not being in this article is encouraging!

I have always thought MP to be running a clean program, and as much as I dislike IU, I never pegged Coach Cream as dirty!

Great news for both programs, terrible and troublesome news for the NCAA and College Basketball. I was never worries about Crean but Ken Johnson and his connection to the issues that went on at U of L and Noah Vohnleh did have me a little concerned but overall happy to see IU is clear and out of the woods.

It will be interesting to see what happens going forward.....

Boy ... Was he good last night!  The dunk in traffic that was a top play on SC this morning was incredible!  His emergence has been nothing short of outstanding.  

P.S. I really believe that Illinois will be a top half BIG team next year and really good!
