Done...but could be SLAMMA JAMMA...
Why not play tough all night vs. waiting til the end? Too many games going this way, but at least better effort & results than last year. BUT, what does that mean? Perhaps better than bottom of B1G. Not impressed! CMP seems to have little clue on how to motivate or utilize AJH.
Where is Fred Schaus, Lee Rose & Gene Keady? They knew how to use bigs?
Where is Arnette Holman, JBC, the Beef, etc?
Is there a Cardinal or Landry on this team? I say, no. Too many guards, which are needed, but need the BEEF!
This team could be Phi Slamma Jamma, but some how there seems to be no Jamma!
There is speed, some sense of of D, MAJOR blocks (probably instinctive, and not coached), but where are the plays that show the potential of this Slamma Jamma team? Smotherman seems to embody this passion on his own, since they are reactions and not play calls... but where are the plays that exploit opponents weakness and Purdue STRENGTHS?
Correct me if I am wrong, but Purdue has a 7' stud, an athletic Simpson, very quick guards, Smotherman, etc.. What else do we need?
I am not from Missouri, but I hope CMP can show me anyway. There is no blaming the players this year. I really thought the potential was this year, but quite possibly we need to be cubs fans and wait until next year. IMO.
