"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
I don't even know what to say.
November is Native American Heritage Month, and anyone who is aware of Nike’s N7 program knows that the program is dedicated to the cause of bringing awareness to various issues affecting Native Americans and Aboriginals in North America.
Doesn't work on offense. Might work on defense against bigger teams (anyone watching MSU play, please comment). Still, Morgan played the 4 on offense and didn't know where to go -- he got stuck in the paint, along with Horford. MM could plausibly fix the problems of having a big 4 on offense, but he missed the perimeter guarding session for bigs due to his injury. (Haven't found the quote, TBH. Nevertheless, its true. [check umhoops stuff])
jumping off two feet:
Walton does it. So does Irvin.
They are freshmen.
They will get better. (This is not football).
Actually better than I expected. Granted, I thought we'd look like last year; last year we had 6 freshmen in the rotation (Beilfeldt included). We'll be pretty good on defense.
Great! Walton and LeVert are great on ball defenders. Obviously, comp caveats apply. Still, those guys pressed bad teams when the opposing player had the ball -- and well beyond the 3-pt line. I can't stress this enough: when you are good, you press, it doesn't matter what the coaches say, if you know you can kick a kids butt you'll force him to make mistakes. Now, that doesn't mean we should expect a press-D. Rather, it means that our defenders are good enough to BELIEVE that they can press the opponents they've faced (comp-caveats: GO).
it will only include 9 or less people. Donnal would have played the last few minutes if the coaches thought they would NOT red-shirt him. He'll redshirt.
MSU vs UK about to start the second half and Kansas and Duke to follow.
Figured we should have an open thread for these games.
This team will be really good when McGary comes back.
I noticed there wasn't a thread put up yet, does anyone have a stream for this game?
Go Blue!!! I predict an 82-55 win.
