Well technically, you used to be pretty good at what you did. The last few months you seem to think you're somehow an elite poster here who in reality is 2nd tier. But you be you.Another crabby fuck is what we need here, Frankie baby. I’m pretty good at what I do. Best embrace it.
Ok, how about ya'll name another top 10 team with two starting guards that are shooting a combined 34% from the floor?JFC, you probably couldn't name a 4th, 5th or 6th option for any other top 10 team.
Your expectations are ridiculous. Do you watch college basketball outside of Iowa?
- Black hole Nunge has gone for 18 but obviously needs to clean up his shot selection.
- Toussaint can penetrate and plays great D despite getting killed for what he did last night.
- Garbage Guy Murray? LOL Yes he plays within himself with great effort but he can also spot up and finish around the rim.
The crew here can’t take it if you don’t suck all the dicks. Very cyclone fanatic in this thread.Ok, how about ya'll name another top 10 team with two starting guards that are shooting a combined 34% from the floor?
I do, in fact, watch college basketball. A good bit of it over the last 40+ years. I've seen a few ACC games live each year since I moved here (obviously not this year). Iowa's bench is the best we've seen under Fran, arguably better than any bench unit under Alfraud. There's not a dependable shooter -- yet -- but Murray, Patrick, and Toussaint have given solid minutes. Nunge? He's forcing it right now.
It's not "Wal Mart" or "Iowa Fan" to look at the backcourt -- minus CJ -- and be skeptical. This is a really good team -- Fran's best -- but I'm not sold on "elite." I've seen two elite teams at iowa in my lifetime -- '80 and '87. Granted, different eras, different styles, but I just think this year's team is missing a piece or two. I think they're a 3 or 4 seed.
Maybe, but Wieskamp plays with the same guy and has created his on shot a bunch and taken a lot of non three point shots and getting a ton of rebounds.CJ is not just a spot up shooter. He can create but he just happens to get a lot of kick outs due to having the best low post scorer in the country as a teammate.
wieskamp is also like 4 inches taller, bigger, and a better athlete.Maybe, but Wieskamp plays with the same guy and has created his on shot a bunch and taken a lot of non three point shots and getting a ton of rebounds.
I get they play somewhat different positions but I’d like to see him do more of what Joe does since he’s often out there with Connor who can’t score in any fashion consistently
I’ve been baffled this year at the people that think there is an argument between minutes for Joe T vs Connor.Connor only took 2 shots and had 6 assists. He plays most of his minutes with Garza on the court. How much do you want him to shoot?
Touissant went 1-6 from the floor and 5-8 from the line. Of those two players, Connor was not the issue.
Edited to accurately reflect the sock puppet toadie.This is what dougie has been saying, and I have been dutifully repeating since the beginning of the season. You basically have one example (Notre Dame a few years ago) of a team being elite offensively and bad on defense being a top 10 team. Doesn’t mean they can’t make a run in the tournament - lots of non top 10 teams do, which is what makes the tournament fun.
The thing is, the defense wasn't all that bad until the last 6 minutes. They make 1-2 more free throws and end that game, it's a totally different discussion. Good top 50 road win that they had to grind out. Instead everything compounded and they gave it away.
