Wojo...what the hell
« on: January 24, 2020, 10:32:02 PM »
No idea what he was doing to have BB foul him with the game tied.  Really looking forward to hearing that one.  It better be a mea cupola of “I fooked up”

Wow, hard to find words for this game.  I guess have to blame Wojo.  The rest of the team played great but Howard was so far off all game and turning the ball over but Wojo kept him jacking them up.  How much does he get paid?

I had to rewind the TV at a commercial break to make sure I wasn't in the twilight zone, but sure enough there it was Wojo signaling to Bailey to foul. Would gain a ton of respect for Wojo if he just says he messed up, but can't imagine that happens.

A prediction:    Wojo will say he did it to make sure MU had the last shot, or some variation thereof.    Instead of letting Butler hold for the last shot, foul early, get the ball back with time to make a play.     Didn't ultimately cost MU the game.   Certainly was unusual.

I know I'm the only one but I don't hate that foul.  First off, Baldwin was scoring at will every possession down the stretch.  If we don't foul, we have to hope he can't do what he did the last 5 possessions (i.e. go one on one for an easy basket) and our options are OT or loss.  With the foul, even if he makes them, we get the ball back with a chance to tie or win.  I wouldn't have done it, but it was gutsy and I had no problem with it.

No that’s a terrible decision. Defend it differently. Don’t give up points.

If that's just him covering for Bailey, then fine.  If that's the honest to god strategy... my word.

No legitimate reason to put an 85% free throw shooter on the line in a tie game.

My guess is he didn’t know the score.

Seems to be the norm with Wojo late in the game.  After 6 years he still can't figure it out.  Poorly coached effort at the end, resulting in another L.  That's 2x conference losses on Wojo.

Are you kidding me? That is a ridiculous foul. You literally should never do that. You dont foul when the game is tied and put them on the line. Nobody says this

He very clearly called for the foul from the sideline.

Bailey only went for the foul when he saw Wojo calling for it.

You could make this case. Get your point, yet I don’t think I’ve ever seen a coach employ that strategy in a tie game.

Definitely defies conventional wisdom...if it was intended. Or did he have a brain fart?  Based on the reaction of Bailey - he looked at Wojo as if to say you signaled me to foul...

Were you watching the game?  They scored on 6 of their last 7 possessions.  I would not have bet on a stop there.  I have no problem with Wojo not betting on a stop there.  Besides it worked out.  If we don't foul our best outcome is OT and we got OT.

lol. Because Koby pulled a shot out of his a$$?  Get out with that sh*t. Fouling a 85% shooter is dumb. Period.
