What's truly amazing to me is that, if you break down film and watch each individual player and match-up, there is literally at least one foul or violation happening in nearly every single half-court possession that doesn't get called. It's kinda like in football where, technically, you could realistically call holding on nearly every single play. Some officials let more stuff go than others for the sake of game flow.I agree. BIG games can bog down because of phantom calls. Officials take the flow out of the game more often than not.
Filip Rebraca dropped 23 and when 2-3 from the 3 point line against the gophers and our all everything 7'0" center Liam. Hight is such an over-rated measurement.A Big Ten team having a 6'9" starting center, that played the previous year in the Summit League.
Just different times.
They also have a much more athletic team than any other team short of the NBA.Baylor's starting lineup was 6'2 6'3 6'4 6'5 6'10. Now granted...they didn't play in the mighty B1G, where I'm sure they would have lucky to finish .500, but they were still pretty good last year.
A) Excuse me? UCLA superior to Rutgers in academics. False. B) No offense, but I would and have watched every Gopher game no matter what for decades now. It doesn't mean the product is superior. The Big Ten just has a rabid fan base, that could become even more rabid if the quality and competitiveness of the product improved. Ticket sales have little or nothing to do with the quality of the product. Taco Bell sells a lot of food, but the product is and will make you... you know.He is leaving for academics. And, many prefer the style of play you don’t. It has nothing to do with revenues since Big Ten is tops in attendance and revenue for basketball year after year.
True, but find a post on here where I was opposed to Pitino's plan. He had some huge wins. Convince me that he gets fired if his teams had been healthy --yes, I know, you have to have depth, but you can't convince me that Pitino was a healthy Liam Robbins away from finishing in the top half of the Big 10 this year when it was stacked like never before.Sounds like a genius plan.
This is exactly what Pitino did, right?
B1G has always been a more rough and tumble league. I'm always more worried come tournament time because of that wearing down some and that the fouls are called tighter.Do refs call 40-50 fouls/game in other leagues? Is the B1G that much more physical or have the refs destroyed a good thing?
Morality? More like common sense.you are in no moral position to dictate commentary, on any thread. Piss off
