No, it wasn't pretty, but it sure was a hell of a lot prettier than our previous six losses
|23 hours 40 min ago||I love this team||
I love this team... I don't care about those six ugly previous losses (barring Nova). This team has heart. The team is coming around, but A LOT of this rest of the season will depend on how much intensity we put into every game now until Selection Sunday. We can't afford have a repeat of the OSU game earlier this season.
Now about this game... Walton hero-ball scares me. I love him, but he just isn't Trey and doesn't have is dribble penetration. I really would have liked to see some more ball movement in OT to find a quality shot. We still aren't shooting the ball particularily well, but the offense is finding a groove. Love that the freshman are stepping up, and Chatman played some quality minutes as well. Now I'm starting to see why Donnal was a Top 100 recruit. The kid has some strong range and grabbed some quality boards tonight. He still isn't where he needs to be, but he is really coming around.
This team has the capability to be very pesky come March, and like I said before, a lot of it will depend on how much fortitude we show day in and day out. We have a lot of work to do, but if tonight was any indicator, we most definitely can do it...
PS, I LOVE THIS TEAM AND JB

We need Dawkins to really step up... The dude's got game, and I think he has the ability to make things happen on offense. I'm psyched for this, and I have a mildly good feeling going into it.

It's the ceiling tiles... It took me a second as well, but I'm still just as confused as to how/why they mutilated them like that

Thanks much OP... I love seeing music threads around here every once in a while. I used to be a major Lupe fan, but F&L 2 wasn't that great IMO, and I really haven't listened to him in three or four years as a result... I'm a third of the way through Tetsuo and Youth, and I'm loving it so far

He does great impersonations (although these were pretty lame), but he is not funny at all... my only highlight of him will be the John Madden quick pop popcorn popper

Take note, Sparty... Spike with a sports hernia, Caris now with a broken foot, and D-Walt with a broken toe... These are real injuries

MBB will make the sweet sixteen... They will turn a corner, and I'm confident Dawkins wasn't just a fluke the other day

This was so fucking beautiful... JB, put that man (Dawkins) into the rotation... AND THIS MEANS SPORTS CAN BE FUN AGAIN

Yikes this non-conference go-through was bad. I think this team has the potential to peak high. When, how, and if will be the biggest questions to solve. I do believe this team will peak, but it will be late in the conference schedule.... maybe even too late for a tourney shot. I've got us as a low 10-12 team right now (maybe having to play a play-in game to get in), but I do think we peak high at some point this season. Doyle and Donnal are starting to come around, but I highly doubt they will be contributing much in the conference schedule.
I believe in JB, but this really doesn't look like a good end to the season... Till then HARBAUGH

so basically we should be aware, but not fully aware
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Here's the difference||
Here's the difference between today and the previous three games: Intensity. We continue to shoot the ball poorly as we did in the past three games, but intensity has kept us in and brought us back. SMU has 16 turnovers, and I'd argue to say that most have been because of our increased defensive intensity. Ugly, but a better ugly

Donnal looks world better... a few mental lapses, but he doesn't look like a deer in the headlights...

|5 weeks 1 day ago||Congrats||
Congrats to all those admitted today... Truly am happy for all of you. I personally was deferred, but I'm holding out hope that my stats will get me in the second time around. Competition is absolutely fierce this year. I've heard this was the largest early action applicant pool that they have ever had, and I've been roaming around on other sites where people have been sharing that they got 33+ on the ACT with competitve GPAs and were deferred.
It was heartbreaking reading the deferral, but I understand the circumstances and where they are going as a university. I won't be surprised when in 15-20 years they have the same acceptance numbers as the Stanfords and Vanderbilts of the world.

Also, the fact that Max B is getting considerable minutes is highly concerning... Donnal MUST figure it out if we are to have any success later this season.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||JB||
JB needs to figure out how to transition this offense from "live and die by the three" to "get some damn points any way possible." Caris, Zak, and Derrick are all strong dribble drive penetrators, but they just lack confidence at this point. NJIT was flukish... This is concerning. I still think JB will get us there, but holy shit... he needs to get this figured out soon. This isn't like last season where one guy (Nik) emerged as a go-to guy and got points when we needed him to... We have three guys who can get us the points, but we've gotta figure out the consistency.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||JB||
JB's gotta realize that the only way we combat bad perimeter shooting is through dribble penetration and getting the ball to the hole... Nobody was moving on offense, and that killed us. This lack of confidence in our shooting ability is a virus that is killing this team from the inside out. JB's teams are all about high octane offensive fire power. NJIT was a fluke... This was for real.
I think he'll figure it out at some point, but he's gotta do it soon if we want to progress as a team.

Maclin, Jordan Matthews, and Jarvis Landry... Pick two
Philly matchup with Seattle scares me, but it's typically a tossup as to who is the better play between Matthews and Maclin.
