Griffin WTF ?!?
« on: January 21, 2020, 11:39:41 PM »
I've said all year Tevian Jones would determine the ceiling on this team.  Now I think Alan Griffin will determine our upside - by defining our downside.

Todays 'step' foul was the most stupid play I've seen an Illini player make since Leron Black got a T in the BIG tourney ... a T in a must-win game.  We danced in the NIT, not the NCAA - THANKS LERON!!!

This is the second dumb T Griffin has gotten this year.  The 1st technical occurred in a home win against a cupcake with a minute to go. GEE - YA THINK that Refs don't remember things like this, and pigeon hole teams into their 'Thug' catagory, call more stuff - fail to give Thug teams the benefit of the doubt?

Griffin did not grow up in abject poverty - his father played in the NBA.  GROW UP!!!!!  Manage your anger (1 on the 7 deadly sins), or transfer to Thug State or Thug Tech  :thumbdown:

I dont even think it's anger in this case.  We were up 5 when this happened.  I've seen him throw elbows after the play when he thinks officials aren't looking, and has gotten away with a few.  He just has a mentality that needs to be changed.  BU teaches toughness, but he has a skewed (playground) idea of what that means.  BU had no trouble telling him to get off the court, though he said he didn't see the play clearly and Griffin told him he lost his balance.  BU had seen enough film to know that probably wasnt the case.  I dont think he should play against Michigan even if there are no NCAA handdowns.  He needs to realize where that line is, and imo, he has been stepping over it all season.

What in the name of Christian Laettner was he thinking? Griffin has been playing with an edge but he obviously needs to tune it way down. He picked up a T against Mizzou towards the end of the game when he wouldn't stop jawing at Smith. Time for Tev get back into the good graces of BU.
