    I think that would have been the smart thing to do. You guys would still have had your hands full even with LeVert. Why not cut your losses and get him ready for the next game.

    I'm quite sure that my opinion of who and what is a troll belongs to me.

    And no. I am in agreement with everyone else that Michigan is terrible defensively. There is no debate to be had there. Meanwhile, there is disagreement about if Indiana's has improved or not and we are having a debate about it. Michigan is irrelevant to that debate, but I'm not surprised an Ohio St. troll would use a discussion about Indiana's defensive improvements to take a shot at Michigan.

    That's my thinking. Michigan probably loses that game regardless and has a better chance of winning at home vs Maryland than @ Purdue. If LeVert misses the Maryland game too, then it's time to start worrying about the possibility it is a season ending situation like Walton and LeVert both had last season.

    If, during a debate about Indiana's defensive improvements, I said something along the lines:
    "The better question is: What is worse? Indiana's defense or Ohio St.'s terrible offense?", that would be trolling. Ohio St. is irrelevant to the discussion and taking a shot at Ohio St. in a discussion about Indiana's defense is trolling.

    Stop playing coy and just own up to the troll. Everyone here does it from time to time, but getting your feelings hurt for being called out on it isn't a good look.

    In actuality I wasn't trolling you. Actually I'd be quite surprised if ohio state was brought up in a BIG thread as we spend 95 percent of the discussion on Indiana, Purdue, or Michigan. So I will take what I can get. In fact the entire board would be relieved to discuss something besides Michigan's three point shooting or Indiana's defense I'd imagine.

    Last year it was the who sucks worse debate between indiana and Michigan relayed at nauseum for 4 months. That was fun. Not that anyone on here berates their point or anything.

    Sigh. Still denying that it was a troll attempt.

    1. Ohio State and Michigan are rivals? Check.
    2. The debate was whether or not Indiana's defense has improved? Check.
    3. Ohio St. fan injects a Michigan pot shot into the debate? Check.

    If it looks like a dog and barks like a dog, there is probably a reason the post wreaks of dogshit.

    We were discussing defensive efficiency. I know it may seem crazy to discuss things outside of your narrow scope of what you like to discuss but it was a legit question posed to discuss both teams rather than continuing to drone on and on about what proudpete may or may not have said. I take what I can get from you guys to remotely attempt to steer a discussion out of the hot spots some of you love to live in.

    So yes let's discuss more about Duncan Robinson or Indiana's perimeter defense as those are the only worthy topics of note in the entirety of the BIG conference. We have not touched on them enough yet.

    You can talk to yourself about whatever you'd like. It's your world. Heck, take as many irrelevant shots at Michigan as you'd like- just don't cry about being offended when I call you out on it.

    Meanwhile, other posters will continue to discuss things that we disagree on. Don't like it? Don't read it.

    Never seen anyone get so rattled and offended when someone says anything about his team as Hail.

    Indiana has improved defensively. Bryant is getting better.

    Indiana doesn't need to be great, really good, defensively. They just need to be good....or average. Lately they have.

    It's a great way to hold idiots accountable on their stupid hot takes. Don't be mad that I'm sitting at 2-0 as it stands vs Purdue fans.

    You are a funny dude. And to echo Orlando 's sentiments you have lost your shit every time I've said anything about michigan.

    As for what's discussed I'm just pointing out there a good several posters that will discuss the same thing at nauseum. You took offense to me deviating from that conversation because it involved michigan. Frankly I'm just trying to talk about something else. Whether posters go there or not is up to them.

    It is however humorous to me we spend so much time breaking down 3 schools and practically ignoring the rest of the conference unless they are on TV. Or we have to somehow draw those teams back to the "core 3" to get any interest.


    All that said Did I get all hot and bothered over the negative ohio state thread? Start calling everyone a troll? No. Because people are entitled to their opinions provided it's not overkill.

    I was lied to and told there were some good posters there.

    Edit: Instead, I had to deal with things like a poster insisting the NCAA has conspired to keep Purdue from having NCAA Tournament success.

    Maybe Hail will bet you on that. I'm gonna pass. I'm a Purdue fan and you know we stand no chance against his genius.

    Another bitter Purdue fan complaining that it looks like I'll finish the season 2-0 betting against Purdue homers? No surprise there, folks.

    I was wondering how the Purdue idiots here would spin their brethren being wrong. It looks like rather than conceding, they make fun of betting on predictions all together. Nothing like a Purdue homer doubling down on stupidity.

    @CardinalBoiler, @boiler1987, @BoilerExpress ......Do you see what we are talking about? These terrible Purdue posters flock here like flies on shit for no other reason to troll. If it was just one or two posters, it would be understandable, but this is just laughable. How many Matt18Jones faithful do you guys have over there?

    I think you will find that the vast majority of the PU posters are reasonable and want to have a good discussion. The problem is that you and Matt made it almost impossible to do so. On more than one occasion I tried to get Matt to please stop posting such inflammatory stuff and he wasn't representing PU. You did/do nothing but worsen the situation by not only engaging with him and egging it on but by also throwing all PU fans into one bucket. Of course people are going to get defensive when you constantly harp on the same stuff. We know he was a tool and we know MI is going to have a higher 3 pt% than PU. Can we please just move on? Like the OSU guy said I'm sure people get tired of hearing about MI, PU and IU because a couple of people dominate the conversation.

    I agree with everything in this post, but when you pop up of nowhere with a "careful, he might try to bet you on that!", don't be surprised when I Dikembe Mutumbo swat that weak crap.

    I think Hail , SNU and MJ are just this boards version of Cybil. The "all Purdue posters" crap is weak sauce as well.Ill guarantee you I won't judge Meatchicken fans based on Cybils posts. Wanna bet?

    Back on topic, I'm thinking the Big Ten gets atleast 6 bids this year. I know some people people were thinking 5 but Msu Maryland Purdue and Iowa are locks. I don't see two missing between Indiana Michigan Ohio state and northwestern. If things play out right 7 could still happen.

    I'm looking forward to the OSU/IU game today. I think it will be a good one. Right now I would say 6 teams make the dance, but agree it could be as many as 7 depending on how Michigan and Northwestern continue to play. You know the committee would love to put NW in if they would just give them a chance.
