I was told by @IUfanBorden, just earlier this year, that refs don’t change the outcomes of college basketball games with shitty calls.Can't imagine how bats--t crazy Illinois fans on this thread would be going if this happened to them. This thread would be at 100 pages today. Hey @1016CC0503 crap like this happens to everyone. Bitch less when it happens to your team.
Pretty sure the officials didn't miss the back end of the 1 and 1----Right?I was told by @IUfanBorden, just earlier this year, that refs don’t change the outcomes of college basketball games with shitty calls.
If you think that’s what happened here, I’m sure you can talk it over with him and get to the bottom of it
And yes, Illinois fans would certainly talk about it more. We have more fans here (and in general) and more who pull against us. Just the nature of the beast.
Did you hear that @RutgHoops ?Pretty sure the officials didn't miss the back end of the 1 and 1----Right?
Missed FT's, turnovers, missed lay-ups, giving up offensive rebounds, etc, etc....play just as much of a role in who wins/loses. Missed calls are part of the game----just as missed shots, turnovers,missed FT's are. They all play a role, and one is no bigger than the other.
I have told coaches----"When you play the perfect game, come talk to me...."
Riiiiiight-------Quit being so fukin' obtuse, bruh. Of course a perfect game will never occur in hoops---playing wise, nor officiating. I didn't expect you to the understand though. Dudes wanna bitch about a call, or calls-----but forget the numerous turnovers, missed shots, missed defensive assignments that lead to points, etc,etc.....Sports are imperfect----Why people expect perfection is beyond me.Did you hear that @RutgHoops ?
You guys shot 28 for 54. 26 misses. So fix that. Make all your shots so you can play a perfect offensive game, while also playing perfect on defense. Then we will talk.
Refs missing calls that cost you the game?? Hah. You wish, dude. Just play perfect.
Everybody bailed on Purdue’s Rivals site when they moved to On3. IU’s main site is on 247 I think. Rivals is dying.Surprisingly, Rutgers’ Rivals board gets WAY more traffic than any of the fan bases more represented in this thread.
PU and IU sites are surprisingly slow, compared to how I remember them in the past.
Is this speculation or did you see/hear that somewhere? I haven’t seen anything official but like you said, back injuries are tough.Looking like no JHS tomorrow vs Arizona...
Uggggh....This is getting worrisome. Back issues. Seems as though this could be an all year type of thing----good----then bad---good---then bad.
In reality-----Not good.
