I am going to the Big Ten Tournament on Friday night (session 3) to see a couple of games. The first is Illinois v. the winner of Iowa/Michigan and the second is Purdon't v. the winner of IU/Penn State. I have not seen my Hawkeyes play live in several years so I am hoping that they win their first round game. I feel that with Cyrus Tate we are a different team, and that we could actually make some "noise" in this tourney. I hope so, because it will be the last tourney we play in until next year.
I live in Indianapolis, so I see Butler regularly and can't help to think that Lickliter shorted us a bit. Why didn't we get some of those players? Matt Howard and Gordon Heyward should be in the gold and black. Why are they ranked 17 and we can't get even get in the NIT? Do we have any big men to replace Tate next year, or are we going to go with an all guard lineup? Lickliter - You have some 'splain'in to do!
And by the way shouldn't BHGP have some basketball t-shirts? I can't wear the Stanzi shirt to a basketball game. Come on guys.
