General is starting to dominate on here!
My memory, not always as accurate as I would like, tells me that, in the NC game against Roy's Jayhawks, JB employed the exact strategy you describe. I was fearful before the game of Kansas' transition game and once the game started, noted that we were willing to give up the boards to get back on defense. Anyone else recall it the same way?
Also, thanks General for you comments on the 'psychological' explanation of 'playing down to the competition'. Can't tell you how much I have always hated that weak explanation that tries to pass for analysis.
Do you see what I am getting at here?
Michigan St. ALWAYS crashes the offensive glass hard.
Michigan St. NEVER changes what they do because of the opponent.
