This team isn't very talented, and the 2020 class is almost impossibly shitty.

Time to stay the course.

Connor really needs to give up on basketball. He's not very good. Maybe if his dad hasn't struck out on PGs the last half decade

With Bohannon injured, Toussant is way better than anything else we can offer at point guard. Play him now and deal with his fuck ups. Weiskamp was embarrassingly bad tonight. He wilted like a total bitch. Garza played like a fucking idiot.

Just flush this game and move on.

I mean, it of course wasn't as bad as Chris Street being killed, but that was one of the worst days for Iowa Basketball that I can remember.

Maybe that game will be a wake up call for Fran. It was pretty obvious that Connor/Nunge are completely overmatched starting and playing at a high level.

Hopefully the end of the game shows him that Joe T and Pemsl should be starting sooner than later. Evelyn sucks. Wieskamp was a nutless passive monkey. Garza looked like a flailing retard.

CJ Fredrick is competitive, can shoot, get a shot and has some nuts.

Fuck everything.

Get behind Joe T at PG and live with the ups and downs. Bring Connor in to give him a breather.

Find a pair of balls for Joe W.

Find some shots for CJ.

Find Nunge a seat on the bench and leave him there.

Patrick should be playing more as well. He is long, athletic and plays hard. He runs well with Toussaint.

Get them both on the court together.

Iowa isn’t as bad as they played tonight and DePaul isn’t as good.

Nunge should sit. Pemsl needs to get his head on straight.

Kreiner played more like he needs to but man is he a dumbfuck sometimes.

Joe should get the start and Jordan should just take the shirt.

Didn’t think I would be agreeing that Pat needs more run but I have to agree.

If you’re going to be slow and unathletic you better be fundamentally sound, not turn the ball over, play solid defense and make open shots.

I think Iowa can make shots but they are not fundamentally sound, turn the ball over in embarrassing fashion and play zero defense.

To counter that you put athletes on the floor that can create shots and harass the other teams pg. Hopefully the coaches saw one in the arena tonight that was playing on their team.

Weiskamp will be fine long term but I agree that Touissaint needs to start.

Joe T, Fredrick, Weiskamp, Pemsl, and Garza.

Other than being great for the kid to have another year, I’m not sure I see the benefit to the program of a Bohannon redshirt? Depth for (hopefully) a better run next year?

Well he’s the all time three point leader in Iowa history so I think that’s a guy you’d like to have healthy. Another year of experience for everybody and a healthy Jordan looks pretty decent.

What an embarrassment. If I had to take a wild guess, I'd guess that we're going to see similar athletes in conference. And if you're slow and unathletic, at least play smart. Nope. What a bunch of pussies.

If Jordan does need another surgery I hope the surgeon or nurse does the lords work and shaves his beard

No way the BIG has any athletes as good as DePaul.

Besides our blacks and maybe Frederick, we get blown by at every position. Everyone's man can get in the lane any time they want.

Yeah, can’t argue that and not really trying to. Just wondering how healthy he is (or may end up being) this year vs the benefit to having him around another year.

Empty possessions, bad shots, lazy passes and impatience were more at fault than the defense in my mind.

The d after made baskets was acceptable.

Everything fucking sucks. Thought maybe would catch a break and have a good week celebrating a nice win over Wisconsin setting up a showdown this week for the Big Ten West and then a nice end to recruiting and a couple of basketball wins.

Nope. All of that went to shit.

Only thing that can top it off is a week of Iowa Fan thrashing about after Minnesota comes in and pulls out a win.

None of the D was acceptable. All the retarded plays just pissed you off more than the awful defense. Watch it again. I dare you.

I actually agree with this for the most part.

The defense appeared to suck, but early that was because of DePaul hitting every fucking jump shot it seemed like including multiple contested NBA threes and especially because of the turnovers.

Iowa played well in the half court after made shots or when they could get back off misses.

positives:

CJ looks to have some ability to create his own shot and willingness to guard.

Joe clearly has another gear and just need to control it.


The D wasn’t THAT bad, I felt like a lot of shots early were a result of offensive disasters

that’s about it

The Wisconsin game was easy to predict. So is Minnesota. Hawks will come out and look great and piss pound a hungover Minnesota team. I think we'll even score more than 30 points!

I would sort of like to start off games by not forcing the ball inside over and over to Garza. It seems to not work all that well.

They will be better and win a lot of games, but getting fucking pummeled like this from the start really sucked.

Fuck no I’m not watching that again.

But when they could set up a press, trap, or just mix up zones, they played well enough for a typical mccaffery offense to be in the game.

I think it’s funny that everyone was salivating over Nunge because he gained some weight and he’s the exact same player, just heavier and slower and still lost.

I will cheer for the team, but there is no hope unless someone other than Barta picks the next coach.

Barta is only 56, and guys like him usually will be around until they are 70 or so.

He isn't going anywhere for a long time.
