Purdue site saying how they need to handle business against Illinois and Oregon st so they can go 4-1?
How are they even favored in those games??? The beavers are good. Illinois has some pieces. Purdue hasnt proven anything since brohm got here.
Heres the thing: Fleck openly pumped the team in 2019 bc he knew he had an experienced team.
2020: PJ was very quiet publicly even though media was high on us. PJ knew the defense wasnt that good.
2021: he is publically pumping up the team. He knows!
My feelings as well. Trubisky was a top 10 prospect that only played 1 yr of P5 football much less FCS. That's going smoothly. It's kinda similar to Lance: from little experience to NFL top pick.
To me Lance is still an raw, undeveloped talent that has a higher chance of failing in the NFL than...
Thing is, if Lance had come to MN, would he have won the job as a RS Frosh w zero experience? Would he be on the same trajectory? Likely no.
He bet on himself and beat the house. Good for him. Moving on
To be honest, refs didnt call about 4 fouls on MN drives to the hoop in the first half. I think that scared MN and they didnt adjust and that's on the Gophers.
Badgers are good defensively but were benefactors of a very loosely called game. Pitino needed to adjust and didnt. The gophers then...
I agree with many of you guys here regarding speed vs technique. Reusse is absolutely wrong about speed.
However, I feel like the defense isnt that far away from being a decent squad. I dont feel like it's a talent issue or even identifying talent.
I honestly feel it's a repetition issue...
Amir is a better player. However, I'm just stating that Gach is more athletic but super inconsistent. If we could make him more consistent, I feel like he would be similar to Amir.
Remember, Amir went to a powerhouse HS in MN, played on a well known AAU then transitioned to a P5 school.
