He is. The slump is one thing, but the poor defense and lack of hustle at times is disheartening.

JM missing the bunny and fuck these refs.
They call a foul on that but call a jump ball when we have it? cmon
miss so many lay ups
to bench Timmy and tell him to get his s**t together? He's playing awful.
i say this to friends every day
You make dumb comments everyday
is up with this officiating?
Mmmm home cooking. Must be a state of Indiana thing. It was really bad at IU too.
I've never seen a better example of the crowd dictating the whistles.
Here come the homer calls.
o/u on Hummel mentions - 250.
THJ just is not a good player right now. Below average defensively, and 1 for 18 in his last three point attempts. He needs to learn how to drive and find a high percentage shot when his long-range jumper is off.
I think most everyone here would agree with you haha
he's still good. just not living up to his press clippings. i think he's been reading them too much. he seems to give full effort only in spurts, often to exacerbate his poor play.
I hate it when I see his negative attitude adversely affecting the team. I realize he's a very good player with amazing potential, but he's got to work on his "yes" face, protect the ball, play defense, and work on shot selection. Things I wouldn't expect him to have to learn after his play with the US team this past summer.
These refs are killing me. These are charges
I'm about to punch right thru my flat screen. Obvious charges. AAAAAAARRRRRRGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have these refs ever seen a goddamn charge?
What the fuck. There have been some awful call against us the past few. At least two "blocks" that should've been charges. The play where hardaway got trucked and no charge was called. This is ridiculous.
It's not just that Hardaway isn't helping us now. He's actively making us worse. Whether it's losing the ball of the dribble, bricking 3s, or failing to exert effort on defense, he's killing us.
ASSHATS! It's bad enough to not call the charge and then they call blocking. WTF?
It only makes sense since we got the first 6 fouls in our favor. I totally see where the zebras are coming from.
Finally, a call our way.
I like how we are actually rebounding the ball tonight
with 2 traveling calls
Nice job hitting the FT Morgan.
At every stoppage of play are almost as annoying as the real thing.
Could somebody pull up THJ and Smotrycz 3% percentage for the last five games? Is it under 10%?
You know what boggles my mind? We're not getting Novak and Stu 3pt looks anymore when they were so hot from downtown to start the game. Why is it that we fall in love with the three when we're missing and then when we're on we go away from it?
Thank goodness Purdue keeps bricking their 3s or we could be in serious trouble.
I knew TImmy's 3 was off as soon as he shot that. It was not like that last year.
hope hummel doesn't start to heat up
purdue has shot like crap and we are only up 4. those 3s will start dropping for them in the 2H.
Hardaway actually had confidence and some swagger last year. This year something just isn't right.
I'm completely fine with Hummel being purdue's "scorer" with 7/half.
You can't take 5 TO's into the second half?
wtf was that call?
as we have all year and will still have a halftime lead.
bullshit call on morgan
can go to hell
wow 2 points... i think purdue is very happy about this
UM 30 Purdue 28 HALFTIME
Coach B needs to get on these refs, this is f'ing ridiculous.
This half would've been awesome if it wasn't for the craptacular refs down the stretch
Well that's a great way to end the half. I don't think Beilein is aware of the idea of 2-for-1
He's well aware, I can remember doing it against Minnesota.
Why is nothing ever easy? I hate watching us struggle with the same issues over and over.
