It's tough. The focus is on winning the game. Toussaint was really good in the first half and Perkins was playing so well in the second half it's hard to sub in when guys are playing so well. If Iowa is to win the BTT, it's likely Ulis will need to play some good minutes either due to foul trouble or how the game is going. Could be as soon as Indiana.
And hopefully, if recent history is any indication, he did not pout for one flat second of the 40 minutes he spent on the bench today. He knows good and well that it's just a matter of time before his number will be called...same with JT and Perk and the rest of the guards. They all have different but complementary skill sets, giving us a lot of flexibility and capability to counter what the other team is throwing at us. Another good example is Sandfort. Seemed like he played nearly half of the opening stanza...and then to Doodle's knowlege, didn't see the floor in the second half. Or if he did, it was extremely limited.

The point is, it's a very good sign that Fran appears to be fully in tune with what combinations are working and which guys are contributing at any given moment in these games. Everyone wants to play. But so far, egos appear to be firmly in check and all efforts seem focused on, as Mr. Schembechler was fond of saying, "the team, the team, the team."

Anyone know the point in time where Connor said a Rutgers player tried to trip Kris, I think that is who he said, on the fast break and when the same player dove at his legs?

Rutgers is a team with some serious issues.

Next time we hear about some brawl in MBB, pretty good chance one of the teams will be Rutgers.

Bunch of little bitches,
What happened to Rutgers is what is supposed to happen to what we'll just agree to call "very physical". They foul almost constantly with the knowledge that the officials simply will not call every foul. They hope to get more value from thuggery than loss from giving up 20+ FTs.

Now the historic blue blood thugs, Indiana, Purdue, the Michigan schools and more recently Wisconsin employ the same game plan but the league rewards them because they get called for probably little more 25% of what could be called, and should be called, plus a disproportionate number of OB balls, etc... Nobody cares about Rutgers so they get called for a lot of fouls.

That was Mulcahey. See above pic. If that pic was taken a few brief moments later, you would see him reaching behind his head and trying to grab Kris by the ankles.

Not the best shot, but he definitely grabs Kris’ leg as he runs away. Pretty dirty.
