    Oh well, I expected us to lose that game, but honestly I felt like we just came out shell shocked. I don't feel like they were more talented than us. Hopefully they figure it out.

    Need to get out of non-conference with only 2 losses.

    If a team is knocking down threes, it makes the zone ineffective. Like it ****ing matters anyways. We can't get a mother****ing rebound to save our ****ing lives. And so much for our good defense. Looks a lot better when you are playing terrible ****ing schools.
    The zone was effective though. It cut a 14 point lead down to 2. And was creating turnovers. They were scoring on about 1/4 of possessions against the zone. I would have stuck with it. The man to man hadn't worked all game.

    Oh well, I'm not as upset as you are. I think our weak schedule hurt us in the sense that we were a bit shell shocked to see this team being so talented. Just need to regroup, we will be fine. It's still a growing experience, can't get our hopes up too much.

    Remember a .500 record this season would still be a pretty good accomplishment.

    I didn't expect to lose that game. That's ****ing horse****. Boston College sucks. We are going to get ****stomped in the Big Ten. If that pussy *** team just outrebounded the **** out of us, just imagine what the bigger Big Ten teams are going to do. Same ****, new season. Cody Zeller can't get here soon enough.

    BC doesn't suck, they will be a well coached squad this year and we were playing on the road.

    I would have been shocked if we won this game.

    I think you have to consider moving Creek or Jones to the bench, and starting Oladipo to help on the boards. Either that or when we are playing zone, you can't have Watford up top, where he does wreak a lot of havoc, but seriously hurts the rebounding. So you either have to decide if you want to be a more turnover oriented team or a better rebounding team.

    They also smoked Cal, beat Texas A&M, and played Wisconsin tough.

    Good teams lose to bad ones in college basketball on a consistent basis. It's just the nature of the beast.

    We came out early got shell shocked, dug a big hole for ourselves, and then ran out of game trying to get out of it. We blew some serious chances in that second half to take the lead.

    We also had to have been much better on the boards in the second because we only got out-rebounded by 6 and most of that if not all of that advantage had to have been in the first half.

    At least the Big Ten won the Challenge. That was our first real test of the season, and we blew it. I commend the guys for coming back, and BC really killed all our momentum with all those threes. Just frustrating. I thought we really had a chance to build serious confidence and it was a golden opportunity to do so. Before the Big Ten season starts, it was this game and the Kentucky game as the opportunities to do so. I'm not hopeful about that UK game.

    No, but at the very least all this team needs is to win and gain confidence and Crean himself said that's what this non-conference schedule is all about, which is why our start and our finish are pillowy soft.

    Yeah but the players know that they need to beat good teams. Beating the crap out of 10 cupcakes isn't going to do a whole lot for them. They need to know they can beat anyone. We need a signature win on the season.

    I mean we already beat a very good Pittsburgh team last season. One signature does absolutely nothing, we have to build consistency and to me that means we need to start piling up as many wins as we can and try and get in a groove.

    Nobody thought Pitt was any good then. I remember during the game the announcers talking about how neither team would be playing in the tournament. It was only later that we found out they were good.

    Signature wins do mean something. I don't understand how you can think they don't. With young teams not used to winning, sure beating crummy teams helps, but at some point, you want to know you can compete and win at a high level. I'm not saying BC would have done that, but you are still undefeated and winning games you are supposed to win, and you start to get that feeling that you can beat anybody. Kentucky would be a monster win if we could somehow pull that one off.

    I think everyone recognized how big that win over Pitt was. If only Creek hadn't gotten injured....

    I think we have to remember just how much that changed the outlook of last season and it's still lingering into this season as he tries to fight back.

    At the time, that win over Pitt was not a huge deal. No one thought they were any good at the time.

    And we need Creek, but even he won't help our bigs out when it comes to the B10 season. As was the case last year, teams are going to destroy us down low. That's why the Guy Marc ruling hurt so much. Yeah, he might not have been any good, but he's a desperately needed big body down low.
