We Love No Other 6.19 - 2023 Postmortem

Mar 24, 2023

Tyler and I have done this each of the last three years. The season is over, the Tournament rolls on without us, so we sit down and record a podcast to discuss where it all went wrong (and where it might be going from here). I don't think I need to set this up any more than that. Season's over, here's what we thought.

If you want to listen on Apple Podcasts you can do that here (note: as of 10:30 am this episode hasn't linked with Apple Podcasts yet but after two hours I'm tired of refreshing the page hoping to see it so I'm just going to publish now and if you can't get it on Apple Podcasts, you can listen below). If you want to listen on Spotify you can do that here. And if you want to listen online right now, you can do that here:

Honestly, I'm not really all that interested in podcasts.

You sure about that? You sure about that that's why?

Then don't listen. Maybe other people are interested.

So listening to you both talk about the B1G West football and B1G basketball, competing in the B1G sounds a lot like being a politician in a deep red or deep blue state - in order to do well with the "base" (or in conference), and get into the national conversation, you have to position yourself a certain way (play a certain style), but once you do so, you have a very limited chance of succeeding at the national level.

Love the podcasts. Agree with Tyler regarding a ‘coaching league’. Beginning of year, structure is in place, advantage in non conference over teams learning their framework/ what decisions to make. Players knew when to shoot from what spots. BIG has done well in non-con over the years. However, end of year players making decisions > structure. Other teams can scheme around the structure, and BIG players seem to not know what decision to make. Purdue this year. Purdue last year. Illinois last 2 years. MSU interesting case. Maybe the framework is in place, and players learn to make decisions over the year? They seem to do well in non-con/Conf/tourney for past decade+,but less so recently. PSU Shrews seemed to have framework in place, players learn to make decisions over the year, and one of best BIG teams by end of year, just ran into Texas.
