Let's go boys!

Great start for Stauskas
ULNAR FUCKING NERVE
Oh look, we're in another hole.
Another slow start. Awesome.
There is really no need to step out on GR3 any more..he never hits it
It is becoming a trend.
Stauskas was also clearly fouled on that drive though, typical Big Ten homecooking from the officials.
This game scares the shit out of me. I just have a bad feeling they're going to lose this one.
Just turned it on, but only down 3. Just overreacting already or a slow start?
Meh, it's an open thread. If we're not up 30 after the first four minutes it's a slow start.
Wouldn't be an MGoBlog game thread without some good old-fashioned overreaction. We can get whatever shot we want at the moment, just have missed a few open threes or we'd be up.
Kind of a slow start, but I'd say everyone is completely overreacting already.
NO OVERREACTION ITS JUST PANIC TIME
I seriously hate college basketball officials. Why the fuck is it seemingly impossible for these guys to call a fair game? I love college basketball, but the homecooking is one aspect that I despise.
FirstRow. Always FirstRow.
Man, GRIII can't buy a jump shot lately. Hopefully he gets it out of his system before the tourney.
For some reason it takes us a bit to get revved up. I don't like it but we're good. Purdue is jacked right now.
for a "welp"?
He fouls people very easily
Wow great refs here.
2 horrible foul calls.
Oh the ball didn't go in? Must be a foul on Morgan.
I just finished my last midterm, and my classes are cancelled tomorrow. If this keeps up, I'll have hit the trifecta for "reasons to drink heavily on a Wednesday night".
Can we hit a shot? Can't let them think they have a chance by not hitting the broad side of a barn to start the game.
Someone's gotta get to the damn cup
Purdue has some terrible sounding rims
GR3's most impressive ball handling of the year right there
Last game, we saw what happens when Stauskas and Levert are both on. Right now, we're seeing what happens when they're both off.
They're shooting 60% form three, we're shooting 18% overall...yeah, pretty much sums things up.
So we're back to the games where we can't hit shit and the other team all of a sudden becomes a 3 point machine.
So they finally call hold on our cutters
Wow does this team ever love digging themselves in holes at the beginning of games.
I think these refs are MSU fans
I don't think Spike even stepped out.
Well this couldn't get any worse. Team doesn't get enough stops to get down early on the road.
They look out of sorts right now.
Is it too much to ask for some effort on defense? I swear it seems like this team is not trying on that end of the floor at times.
There's complaining about refs.
If the shots aren't falling this can happen
You can pretty much say that about the game of basketball in general...
Is that the thing about all offenses?
What the hell. I hate these sluggish starts. Wake up.
Looks like our defensive gameplan was to not close out hard and protect against the drive. Not going well when they're making every shot.
Just start every game down by a dozen.
It's all for ratings. #wowexperience
Welp, just tuned in. I see we're still doing the slow start thing. On pace for 12 first half points? Excellent.
