Fired Bill Carmody: Media input

Media input

i forgot to include my regular update on the Trib's depressing coverage. these two paragraphs perfectly sum up last night:

Some defeats feel like someone took a pitchfork to your abdomen and pretended to bale hay. The Wildcats' 63-61 loss to No. 19 Purdue at Welsh-Ryan Arena would be one of those, an insidious implosion that could threaten a season's already tenuous equilibrium.

In the second half, the Wildcats (8-6, 0-4 Big Ten) missed 20 of 27 shots, including what would have been a go-ahead fast-break layup by Jeremy Nash with 15 seconds left. They were outrebounded 30-15 after halftime and hit just 6 of 12 free throws in the last nine minutes.

meanwhile, the Daily Herald blames Pat Fitzgerald for this one.

and as far as the officiating goes, i don't want to hear it. there were plenty of questionable calls both ways last night, and NU does not deserve to complain about the refs. you can complain about the refs when you play well enough to win, and the Wildcats haven't done that in weeks.
