Anybody catch the announcers calling out IU for trying to "flop" at about the 1:40 mark? They scored on that 3 pointer, then one of their guards tried to act like Craft ran him over during inbound. Announcer said "Indiana just tried a flop, it was obvious as the IU coaches were up calling for the foul before the flop happened".....
I'd be embarrassed if all my coach can come up with to bring us back in a game is to fake a bunch of fouls....Dude needs to coach Soccer, that's the sport of true floppers...
Your coach needs to get in the Ref's ear early and tell him they better not let that crap fly...
If I were IU fans, I would be embarrassed as hell. It's not even subtle. The play by play guys are even starting to talk about it.
It's Bush League...
I don't mind a guy trying to draw a charging call, but to have a coach orchestrate an acting class to try to get a flagrant foul called on a kid? C'mon dude, be a man!
I agree with another BN poster that said the Big Ten needs to send out warning that this type of play will result in a flagrant foul being called on the team that does the faking, that will end this quickly!
There is certainly a pattern emerging of IU players flopping or appearing to flop. First was the Nix nut check against Zeller that may have been Zeller grabbing Nix's arm into himself. Then Sheehy trying to get the elbow call after potentially getting told to do so (video attached). Now this?
Tom Crean is coming off as slimier every time I watch IU. I have nothing against him or IU, but if these coincidences continue to occur, he may divulge into full on scumbag in my eyes.
It's embarrassing. Nothing else can be said.
The flopping is hard to stop, but the faking of elbow and groin shots should be a technical. They should create a rule where if a coach or player claims he was elbowed (or obviously acts like he was) and the officials have to stop the game and go to the monitor to check, if it turns out to be an acting job the player or coach is hit with a technical for delay of game.
