|1 day 3 hours ago||Better teams get more fans||
I assumed the question was excluding how good the team was. The obvious answer is have a better team. That said, I don't see this team as significantly worse than any team since the 2014 b10 champ team. Yet, it seems like attendance is down.
|1 day 3 hours ago||9 pm weeknight games||
I think the late start on week nights is the answer. Along with secondary issues being discussed (length of game, etc.). I've perceived a serious divide in attendance at late games vs early or weekend games. Not sure if the numbers back that up or not.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Technical explanation||
I didn't understand that explanation. The commentators made it sound like an assistant walking toward the baseline is an auto tech. That can't be.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Seriously||
No effort to go inside, no ball movement, just Irvin dribbling into a 3. Twice
|2 days 15 hours ago||FTs!!!!||
Come on guys
|2 days 15 hours ago||Tech explanation||
Did anyone understand that explanation?
|2 days 16 hours ago||TV Teddy||
Strikes again. Can't beleive the B1G still let's him call games. Actually I can beleive it. They shouldn't though.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Good game||
This is actually turning into a pretty good game.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Poop||
Robison and Walton missing FTs. Come on
|2 days 20 hours ago||One set back||
Unfortunate for the team, but not the end of the world. Agree with those above, missed opportunity. Let's not forget how far the program has come though. When I was there the WBball team was recruiting volyball players to fill the roster. Good time to refocus and finish strong down the stretch.
|5 days 8 min ago||6 line||
For me the target should be getting up to the 6 line. That would take a great run down the stretch, and some help. Otherwise I'd almost rather be a 7 or 10 than 8-9. Better shot at the 2nd weekend. In summary, keep winning.
|1 week 2 days ago||Only 4 threes||
Less opportunities to plow over a D-bag coach on the sideline. That's what he's pissed about.
|1 week 2 days ago||Wagner||
Alll time great play: hits the three then trucks Crean on the sideline.
|1 week 2 days ago||Walton||
He's is playing at an all big10 level. We need him to keep it up.
|1 week 2 days ago||Fouled||
I hate the last 2 min review. Wagner got fouled. May have went off of him, but he was hacked.
|1 week 2 days ago||Free throws||
Man, missed a lot of them today. This game could be over.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yeah||
I agree with you, but the other side is that it's a low risk way to get him some confidence
|1 week 2 days ago||Women's bball game starting on BTN||
Hottest team in the conference, looking to whoop Wisconsin.
|1 week 2 days ago||Good half, but left some points off the board||
Could be up 15 or more right now. TOs and missed FTs are frustrating. That said, pretty good defensive effort, which is really the test for us.
|1 week 2 days ago||Lol||
Great sequence there by big Mo
|1 week 2 days ago||Donnal / robinson||
Those guys are good injections on offense, but man we get manhandled on D when those guys are in together
|1 week 2 days ago||Good effort on D||
Good start on D. We need this win.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Good time for a look back||
I feel like that was a nice indicator for Beilein's propensity to adapt and evaluate. Hopefully demonstrative of the direction this season is going.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||*unless required by law||
Maybe I'm missing something, but this doesn't seem like all that strong, or surprising, of a statement. Everyone knows which way the U leans, and there are a lot of little caveats in the statement. I'm just not seeing a reason for throwing our arms out patting ourselves on the back and celebrating. What's new here that I'm missing?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Thank you||
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Do us all a favor||
And tell us exactly what to google to know what you're talking about. Also what rule are you worried about breaking?
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Advanced stat argument||
I'm a bit wary of the advanced stat argument in this particular case (3s attempted not made). If we gave any resistance to getting poorly contested layups, we would give up a lot more open 3s (both of which are typically available). The point is our defense sucks and gives up great looks from both 3 and 2. The percentages are surprisingly high, so maybe a little bad luck, but the volume argument doesn't hold in my opinion with this defense.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Layups||
May be a bit of both. I'm much more concerned with how many weakly contested layups we give up.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Chris Holtmann||
Obviously we'd all love to get Marshall or Stevens, but I think Holtmann is a more realistic target, and the guy can coach.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Great hire||
I think this would be a great hire for a couple reasons:
