LAST EVENING Post Game Show.

LAST EVENING Post Game Show. 

Anyone happen to listen.
I was blown away by what coach said.
The players were not ready for the game. Are the players supposed to get themselves ready? Or is the coach supposed to makes sure they are ready?
The Coach said it was all on the players, Seems like that he thinks only the players are to blame, that gets me to thinking, Should Tommy stand up like big boy and say to the media, The players just wasnt ready and I am their coach and it is my job to make sure they are ready to play. Thats what I get paid a mil or so a year to do, is he doing his job or is Indiana university the fans getting a little shortchanged.
It was not long ago that Mr. Glass extended his contract and gave him another raise.
I know that he is a good recruiter, not quite in the class of Cal. just yet, But is he a top notch All American Coach? that a lot of his kool aid drinking fans seem to think and if he makes some bad coaching decisons they are quick to say it is a lack of talent. Now he has some pretty good talent, Mr basketballs and one of the most highly recruited young centers in the nation (Cody), Jordan hulls a senior guard and Watford a senior also and a defensive specialist in Vic o. Not a lack of talent by a long shot.
My Question is? is this a coaching or a team problem?
Your Thoughts?

Must have went to the Bruce Weber school of throwing your kids under the bus after a loss.   I agree with you John, Coaches should take more blame for not motivating or getting the team ready..   IU played a good first half, Bo out coached him in the 2nd half again...  Not the teams fault.

Good luck

The B1G is the best college basketball league in the country, and have several great teams and several great coaches. On any given night, your team can get outplayed, outcoached, outshot, outsmarted, outhustled. I listened to Coach's presser three times, and don't have an issue with anything he said. Basically, he said we got beat. And by we, you can assume he includes himself.

The only problem that I have with Coach is the same one that I have always had. I don't understand his substitution patterns. They make no rhyme or reason, and IMO have cost us ballgames, including this one. Just my two cents, for what ever that's worth.
