    So according to this putz B1G sucks in the tourney because they beat up on each other. It is not because they suck and are overrated.

    Seems like a solid theory to me. That said, LSU is shooting 80 percent on contested shots and missing the open ones. Maybe we just don’t guard. Can’t be any worse

    I think there is a little to this. The B1G plus so rough and refs allow a lot of contact go. But the B1G was so overrated and every team, but Loyola that has beaten a BIG team had better athletes everywhere. BIG is stuck playing old school hoops still.

    I have to agree with this, our conference gets reffed differently and come tourney we don’t adjust, now with that said that is in no way in the top 5 reasons our teams have played like dog shit. Other teams have gone away from a traditional big man and more of a athletic 4-5 and spread shooting strategy and we struggle to defend it cause we don’t see that in our conference.

    There seems to be so many B10 games that just become unwatchable because there’s a whistle nearly every possession. I’m not saying I want games to be played in the 100s but a few of these games show CBB can be fun to watch when guys are allowed to get in a rhythm and make some shots that aren’t FTs.

    all jokes aside you two are B1G fans but these statements contradict one another. Either they get to play and can’t handle tight whistles or there are used to playing with them and can’t adjust. It can’t be both.

    Totally agree, years ago when they went to freedom of movement we stuck our feet in the mud and refused to move and here we are. There is a reason we haven’t won a national title as a conference in a long time.

    This is easily the most talented team we have played this year, these guys are incredible shot makers. With a legit coach they’d be right with Baylor and the zags.

    They play pure iso ball and still have a top 5 Kenpom offense, what do you think they’d look like in a legit system? They don’t even try on defense.

    Personally think biggest problem is guard play in big ten. Ohio State/Iowa/Purdue had very poor guards for top 3 seeds. Illinois were great but played like shit

    If you haven’t watched much of our teams I understand how that reads, typically both things happen in the games. The refs let our big guys bang inside and push and shove and sort of play through things. Then after both coaches piss and moan it becomes a whistle fest until it gets cleaned up. At that point it’s a race to the free throw line. Plus some teams play very physical defense and get away with it (MSU, Wisky) well when they are allowed to do so and even if they are losing they can muddy up a game enough to stay close enough to win it in the end. Then they get to tournament time and if they are having a bad shooting night they can’t fall back on defense.

    As a whole the conference needs to get more athletic and more shooting oriented.

    Holy shit, zero turnovers for LSU.

    They did that same shit vs us in the SECCG. Have they been this good and holding on to the ball all season?

    The B1G doesn’t have many guys that’ll beat you off the dribble. We like to focus on fundamentals!

    jk, we suck.

    I think Wade decided about two-thirds of the way into the season that the only guys who need to touch the ball are Smart, Watford, and Thomas. Limits opportunities for mistakes.
