I think it may be that people have a bad feeling about Purdue. I, in the other hand, have no sense of time with regards to basketball and feel as though we’re just coming off that year we beat them twice in two weeks with the Uthoff and the Poker, so I am absurdly confident about this game.

I get that, but we need to be more dimensional than just chucking 3's.

Yep. Painter put together a good game plan and I expect other teams to have Conner’s man double Garza until he starts putting up points. The defense, hustle, and rebounding were great.

They will. Joe was 5-8 from 2 on drives to the rim. CJ will have his mid-range. Keegan had two dunks, Jack will hopefully get some more putbacks.

Garza only attempted 6 2s. Pretty clear what Purdue’s game plan was.
I don't really mind the amount of threes and you are 100% correct that was Purdue's game plan, but I do think Iowa could be a little more patient before chucking. Also, with 4:50 left in the 1st half they were in the double bonus and just chucked a bunch of threes. Would have at least like to see guys try to drive and draw some fouls.

Nunge could take three steps from the 3pt line and make a layup. He should think about that the next time he's about to jack one.

Hot takes all around on Nunge. Glad we can all forget how good he was in the previous 2 games

Purdue fans bitching about fouls on Twitter. I mean are they just desensitized to the fact that their team mauls the fuck out of everybody?
Yes. It's their normal and they can't handle when it gets called more. They got away with a ton 2nd half.

Luka might have gotten away with a couple defensively but otherwise, they didn't really earn any more free throws.

We didnt get any breaks with the big ten schedule, but the biggest win was that we dont have to play Purdue at Mackey.

They would have raped and buttfucked us into a loss there.
