  • Re: Iup basketball

    Bravado Joe got a big gift tonight. Win out ... just win out.

      Joe said on his radio show this morning that as of now the game is still on ... but it's up to Clarion being they have to travel and it's a little rough up in their location.

      The heavy snow has stopped ... mainly just flurries now.

              The weather probably didn't tonight's game any favors crowd-wise. Three local high schools have playoff games tonight.

              There was a time not all that long ago that Clarion was considered a big game here. They had some really good teams in the 1990s and early 2000s.

                I think Joe is in the pick 'em and was trying to cover that 24.5 spread. Only reason I can think 5 starters were still in with 50 seconds left and a 20-some lead.

                Playing with fire. In particular when Clarion had a goon in the game taking cheap shots all night.

                Any way ... good win for a 'get it over with' game. Turnovers were too high (near 20).

                Dante was on fire.

                For being 4 and a ton of losses Clarion fought pretty hard. Their top two guys are pretty good. That's just all they have.

                As expected ... awful crowd. Imagine a funeral home.

                  That goon was taking shots all over the place. I thought Cobo was going to explode when he took the cheap shot after the one dunk. Cobo never shows emotion like that.

                    Yep. And, said goon played almost exclusively in the second half.

                      When you intentionally hit a guy from the back while he's coming down from a dunk - knocking him to the floor backward - is just a total b.s., dirty play. That kid is a total clown and has one role on that team -- playground thug. He's a dirty player and should have been fouled out within two minutes.

                      Which goes to the point further Joe cannot continue to play his starters 38 minutes against these dreg teams who want to goon it up at this stage of the season.

                      Was nothing learned in Greensburg last year?

                      Can anybody explain the starters in with 50 seconds to go and up 23 or 25 points? Makes no sense. They've been very fortunate nothing has happened.

                            I appreciate you posting your thoughts.

                            By alumni are you referring to the Gary Edwards era that IUP basically pretends didn't exist despite all its success?

                            That stuff aside ... your right about stat padding. There is no other logical explanation. No idea how he's going to explain to the community why a star player got lost for the season while still playing with two minutes left and the team up 35 points. Those guys were still in the Edinboro game up 50 points. Yes, 50 freaking points.

                            Everybody was asking that question in the stands last night.

                            The dang crowd wants Todd so bad ... put him in and save some legs and health.

                            Obviously it's Joe's team and he will do whatever he wants. But just give them the best chance to win in March. Nobody cares if so and so gets 5 more assists.

                              Yes, the Edwards era did have some knuckleheads, but it also had some of the top talent that IUP has ever seen.

                              Not fair to the quality players and character most of those guys had.

                              And the Kanaskie era is, well, in my opinion, the best talent of all time along with the 2010 title runner up team.

                              Regardless, my point is that this program does ZERO for alumni. Can’t argue with that....

                                You’re throwing stones there without much substance. What do you want them to do for alumni?
