    Those stars don’t make you a good defender. Look at Dakota Mathias. The guy was a 3* ranked 147 and was all B1G Defensive team twice.

    Iowa’s defense was one of the worst in the last 20 years. Just horrid defense. So you think a healthy Nohannon will suddenly become a lockdown defender? The guy isn’t a good defender even when healthy. And no I don’t care that he had 11 steals in his first whatever games and 11 steals in his last 7 games. That doesn’t mean he’s a good defender.

    Your defense was HORRIBLE and won’t magically be good next year with most of the same guys returning. I’m guessing your defense will be poor once again next year.

    And yet you’ll still finish in the bottom half of the conference and not make the tournament. Congrats!

    Lol has nothing to do with race. I don’t think Cook is a good defender and Moss isn’t anything special either. Try again.

    Why are you posting Nunge’s stats like they’re impressive? Those are average stats.

    That reeks of mediocrity. Why are you bragging about winning seasons? And +.500 conference records? It’s bwcause Iowa is so bad that you have to use those. Here’s a question for you: How many total NCAA Tournament wins does Fran have while at Iowa? How many Sweet 16’s? Conference titles?

    And you say 6 straight postseason appearances when 3 OF THOSE WERE THE NIT! That is nothing to brag about at all.

    Oh and actually Painter can make that claim too.

    -He guided Purdue to the NCAA Tournament 6 years in a row (2006/2007 season through 2011/2012 season).

    -he guided Purdue to 6 straight .500 or better seasons in BT play

    -In a 4 year stretch, Purdue finished 2nd, tied for 2nd, tied for 1st, and 2nd in conference.

    - 6 straight NCAA appearances with at least one win in each of the 6 (so back to back to back to back to back to back).

    So Painter easily eclipses what you just mentioned that Fran did. Care to try again? Oh and Painter has been to 4 Sweet 16’s while Fran has been to 0.

    Duuuuuuude. Just stop. Seriously. Gil is an idiot. We all know this. There isn’t any reason to take a thing he says seriously. He’s never going to realize how idiotic his takes are. Just put him on ignore. It helps.

    you are a real funny poster saying that he has 6 straight yeah
    12-13 10th place finish @8-10
    13-14 dead last @5-13 not even Fran in his 8 years has finished DEAD LAST
    so Painter has not guided Purdue to 6 straight NCAAT.

    ANY MORE FALSE stats you care to share?

    how long has Painter been Purdue after being given the reins to from Keady? Fran took over a program that had just 3 winning seasons in BT play in a state devoid of top talent when he took over, using unranked 3* talent and turning them into All BT players and 4 straight years with a 1st Team All BT with a 2nd team AA.

    the instate talent is improving and he has started to get 4* talent from as far away as Washington DC and as close as St. Louis MO.

    when he took over most if not all of the current 4* players on the roster would never have given Iowa 2nd look let alone a 1st look.

    15 mpg I will let someone else do the 40 mpg avg and Nunge was not even expected to play much in fact their were quite a few Hawk fans that wanted him to RS.
    even upping the mpg to 30 = 11.4 ppg, 42 steals and 50 blocks 182 rebounds. like I said Nunge was the 5th leading scorer. that's why I listed him as the plan is for him to be the stretch 4 like Uthoff and Uthoff didn't play till his RSSO Year.
    these were Uthoffs stats in his 1st year of playing
    18.2 mpg, 7.6 ppg on a team that only had 2 players that avg'd dbl digits in scoring while Nunge had 4 players in dbl digit scoring. 152 total rebounds, 11 steals and 35 blocks
    Nunge pretty much as a TRUE FR pretty much matched Uthoffs numbers,

    Even money on seeing more posts today on Iowa hoops than Michigan in the Final Four.

    Early lead with Iowa hoops. Even money is probably a steal.

    Those were the six consecutive years he guided Purdue to 6 straight NCAA Tournament tournament appearances. Even with Painter’s down years, he still blows Fran out of the water.

    Michigan's backups played more Final 4 minutes today than Illinois' entire roster for the past decade+.

    I'm curious.....

    Are you Big Ten posters cheering for Michigan so the posters in other conferences have to drop that whole "B1G hasn't won a title in X years"?

    Or have the Michigan posters here pissed you off to the point you'd rather see us lose?



    I think I'd be cheering for 12 of 14 B1G teams if they were in the finals.

    That Michigan Wolverine Team I saw blow the socks off of that talented Texas A&M squad needs to show up Monday night. Nova has looked dominant since Round 1 and they have looked like the best team all tournament. It's gonna take a special performance to beat them. Michigan slept through the 1st half against Loyola and against Florida State in the Elite 8. If they do that against Nova they'll be down 15 and the game would be essentially over at the break.

    Whether they win or lose it's been one hell of a run. Good Luck Maize&Blue.

    Yeah, that's how I see it too. Playing our B or C game was enough to get by Montana, Houston, and Florida State. Michigan needs to play like they did in Madison Square Garden and vs Texas A&M to hang with or beat Nova, though.

    I was rooting for Loyola because I would have won my pool if they beat Nova for the title. Now I will root for Michigan.

    I only root for one team and it’s not Michigan. I want UW to break the conference streak. It doesn’t mean shit to me if someone else does. I’ve never really been into the conference pride stuff, especially in basketball. I want to be the last team playing every year.

    Enough of this talk let’s get back to important stuff like how is iowa going to finish above 12th. I’m just not seeing it.

    SpartanJD and Siler thought Michigan would miss the tournament. Other Spartan posters thought they would be a fringe bubble team.

    Shoutout to @Mgkcbb. He had been touting Michigan as a contender and MSU as a pretender for a few months. No one took him serious but he ended up being right.

    Big Ten! Big Life! Big Stage! Vincent Edwares, J'Sean Tate, Nate Mason and Robert Johnson win the $50,000 first prize in the 3X3U tournament.

    Penn State wins NIT. These guys win 3X3U. Is Michigan going to make it a sweep?
