Bowen has skills but he has no idea what he’s supposed to be doing on defense.

Patrick was 5-30 in Iowa's 3 straight losses while playing about 27 min/game.

Those #'s aren't great, but he did a lot of little things in those losses that don't show up in the box score like aimlessly wandering around the court, making terrible passes and encouraging others to rebound or play defense.

Kudos for Iowa overcoming his absence.

I'm sure I agree with Margaret in thinking that the best thing for his sadness is for him to get back to ruining Iowa's basketball season by playing about 3 times the minutes he's earned or deserves.

Hopefully Pat spends the rest of the season finding peace. This team is playing much better without his mopey attitude and laziness.
I mean, yeah, they are playing better. But he is dealing with a debilitating mental issue. So out of respect for the serious nature of mental illness, you should kill yourself.

You know who didn't give up on Payton?

Payton.

He was sucking giant dick but played his way through it because that's how he was raised.
some people have no experience with failure. You can handle it like Payton, or you can handle it like Steve Alford.

I'm guessing that Sandfart will start to even out and come back to earth soon, but Perkins (finally) looked like himself and maybe he is ready to take off now.

he’s playing well but his numbers over the past 4 games aren’t unsustainably insane.

18 ppg
6 rb
59% fg percentage
50% from three

Lol. I'm going to guess those might be the definition of unsustainably insane for a streaky sophomore shooting guard.

Debilitating.

LMAO
I mean, a big ten starter who scores in double figures and plays with his dad and brother decided to suddenly quit playing. I would say that’s pretty much the definition of it.

the first two numbers are simply a product of the last two combined with more playing time. Payton has always had a knack for rebounding which is why he’s a better option than Patrick at this point. He the way we are moving the ball, he has got a ton of layups.

No shit they are a product of the last two combined with more playing time.

Hey, dummy, he's not going to shoot nearly 60% from the floor and 50% from three no matter how much he plays. They are going to come back to earth and sooner than later. That's the point when you say that what he is doing is sustainable. It isn't.

Thankfully it looks like Perkins and Ulis suddenly woke up.

I never thought Douglas would turn into a gloom and doom Zaius clone. Shameful.

did you read the words I typed? 50% 3pt is great. It’s not insane.

50% over the course of a season would make him the best 3 pt shooter in cbb history. I think Doug mcD was high 40s. Jon diebler final year at Ohio st was 50%.

Curry is shooting 43% for his career.

If Sandfart keeps this up, he will be punching his ticket to the hall of fame

None of that was doom and glom.

That will come from a whole bunch of people who aren't me after the next slump or even a single loss. I've been the super positive guy 99% of the time, got burned on this one, but the others who are almost always doom and gloom haven't gone anywhere. They will be out in force.
