Over in college football, THE CITADEL hit a field goal to take the lead over #1 Alabama at Alabama in the second half.  Penalty called it back.  I expect Alabama to win the game, ultimately, as I expect MU to win this game ultimately.  But this is why we play the game.

I think Alabama has a better chance. IU took the air out of this team as we are visibly flat. Blue Hose freshman are competing with our upper class men.

Just curious, what are everyone's thoughts if we hit 4 of our wide open 3s instead of 0. And 2 wide open 5 footers.

I generally think the offense was fine outside of missed shots. Not great, but fine.

I expect to win this by 15+

That's the way I see it.  This is a game where shots aren't falling, wide open shots.  If they were, half the people here pissing and moaning would be only mildly pissing, moaning and shooting their dog.

Spaniel
The difference maker on offense graduated. Offense is going to be a big struggle for this squad. Their half court offense is needs a ton of work.

Definitely have missed a lot of open jumpers and bunnies.

Still concerning performance.

This team is going to get embarrassed on Wednesday if they don’t magaically figure something out very soon.

What’s concerning to me is I don’t really see what else there is to figure out. Like you said, maybe the players will magically get better but the cupboard looks pretty bare this year.

I understand that some people want us to be calm and relax, but why shouldnt expectations be high?

The other piece of this. Markus didn't take his first shot until 10 minutes in. Clearly trying to find his teammates more. When we get shooting performances like this that could reinforce the idea that Howard has to do it all himself.

To be clear, if we continue to miss shots in the 2nd half and don't put the game away then I'll be very concerned. I just expect to be better since the offense has flowed better.

I would only shoot my dog if it choked and then peed down its leg.

But I've been told the Markus is all about (my new fingernails on a chalkboard phrase) hero ball

It's amazing how far everyone's standards have fallen for this team. Yes they are defending 2 star players. Yay.. just sad to see how far this program has fallen over the years

As TAMU documented, 2 for 17 against this team is brutal and should not happen.  You state IF shots falling, well they did not.  Woulda coulda shoulda....  still not falling.  But MU will win

Bama up by 3 touchdowns...

I'm not watching but I'll hazard a guess that hero ball is about to make a comeback!

I wish someone would have shown me the first 2:18 of this second half back in April and I wouldn't have gotten my hopes up so high.

No no no, there should be no cheering for Markus on that fast break defenseive play. His pass that brought it about was indefensible

Imagine being content with being up 2 to a sub 300 team in the second half. Couldn't be me.

How’s that Alabama Citadel game going?  Please don’t bring your silly analogies here.

Reeks of desperation to try to equate a National Championship Alabama football team coached by Saban, being off to a slow start to an MU basketball team under Wojo.

For someone who thinks the defense has been bad today, can you explain what's wrong with it? I'm at the game and sure we've had some breakdowns leading to open shots but I've thought the majority of possessions have been good. Maybe I'm missing something.

Honestly, Markus at the point is not the problem in this game.

No one here is content. There is no excuse for this level of poor shooting.

I agree, but I've kinda reached my limit on hand waving away some of these turnovers

There is a ton of talent on this team. The cupboard definitely isn’t bare. They’re just not meshing at all so far.
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.
