At one point they mentioned that he tripped over a player, but no video of it, or further mentions. If that was most coaches in the league, they would have been T'd up immediately for being in the field of play. Nothing for Izzo.
It's not about called fouls, it's about actual fouls. MSU in particular, although there are others, use a strategy of daring the refs to call all contact, and combine it with Izzo whining about all of the calls. His comments going into halftime about touch fouls was icing on the cake.
What I want is for the refs to call things consistently, which means that a foul on one end of the floor is a foul on the other, and more importantly, a foul in minute 1 is a foul in minute 39. And if that means a massive foul disparity, well then, teach your team not to foul. That's not what happens.
Fuck Izzo, fuck the refs
Fighting like hell. Keep it going.
These refs are absolutely terrible
These fouls are complete bullshit
There's nobody plays harder than Garza
Izzo complaining about touch fouls is the biggest crock of shit ever
It makes my eye twitch, because while you're trying to jinx them, it's more likely accurate than the opposite.
It'd be really funny, and it vaults us to the double bye, while Wisconsin is out of it.
As such, I highly recommend it.
I think it's the likely tie breakers tend not to fall into our favor. Let's assume Purdue is a win, which means we go 1-2 against the others. Since they're all in that scrum, it hurts us in both the group tiebreaker, as well as any potential head to head tie breaker.
As always, it's a damn crime we can't AP writers.
Time to bring home some hardware.
Nothing easy left. Buckle up, it's going to be a fun ride. I do not expect anything good at the Breslin Center, and Illinois will be tough, but if we can win the two home games (no easy feat), we'll be sitting pretty good.
It really is weird. (I would like to see more rebounds)
Honestly Wieskamp was not great until the end, and Garza was baseline (which is still impressive, but not dominating). Toussaint and Kriener also had good games.
Very well rounded
Good win. Not always pretty, but there were some great things. Toussaint and Kriener looked great.
C'mon guys, keep it up
You had me at Fuck wisconsin.
ummm...maybe not this meme. There's been a lot of peacock blood this season. Maybe this
Tremendous fight in an ugly game.
Minnesota shot terribly, and completely panicked at the end. Extra satisfying to be against them.
My goodness. This is what a road win feels like.
What a great fight.
