|1 day 16 hours ago||To be fair||
Donnal and Chatman were supposed to be. The reality is that some guys struggle with the transition that you don't expect to. And the plans had Horford in there, too.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Good point||
Nobody ever likes the way JB's teams look. His preferred style is often called soft. They thrive on mismatches at the 4, low turnovers, and good shooting across the board.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Which game will they shoot 80% from 3?||
You know it is going to be ridiculous against someone.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Given our current record||
It may be NCAA (I.e .500 in conference) or losing record. Kinda like football this year.
|3 days 9 hours ago||Ha||
I was thinking of the one about 5 seconds later as Branch was walking away, but you get full credit on the correct answer.
|3 days 11 hours ago||It's still only my second favorite||
Image a UM player near an opposing QB on the ground.
|6 days 13 hours ago||Brady||
A little early to tell with Shane. At this point in his career Tom Brady had finished a redshirt and 3rd string year behind Griese and Scott Dreisbach. ( and looked bad in his spot duty). Not saying Shane is TB, just saying it is early days still.
|1 week 1 day ago||Some not so dark spot (not quite bright spots)||
Chatman looks more comfortable.
Irvin isn't looking down about his shooting slump
Doyle will continue to compete
My biggest concerns are that both point guards look limited. Hopefully, they recover quickly. Would also like Donnal to get comfortable.
|1 week 1 day ago||Not a rebounding issue||
we have missed twice as many shots as Arizona.
|1 week 1 day ago||Wow, 2 blatant travels||
on one possession by the same guy. No call leads to the 3.
Sorry, pet peeve.
|1 week 1 day ago||with no shooting||
nobody should expect them to be able to go inside to score. That comes after the made shots for this team.
With Irvin, Walton, and Spike unable to make anything, well, this is what it looks like. If they get going, the offense will be fine.

They may be right...
|1 week 1 day ago||Coach B breaking one of his golden rules||
Coach's version of the panic button, Irvin playing with 2 fouls.
|1 week 5 days ago||Maybe you weren't watching||
Went inside 4-5 consecutive possessions around the 5 minute mark. Turned it over 3-4 times, got one lay-In by Max.
|1 week 5 days ago||Last 5 3s||
Haven't hit the inside of the rim...and they have all been open. Weird
|1 week 5 days ago||Don't get it||
Play after play, shot after shot, nothing looks remotely like the team we saw before Saturday
|1 week 5 days ago||Comparison to Syr||
EMU doesn't look like Syr at all. Spike can't get anything done tonight etc. makes you wonder if the prep was 'just do what you did against Syr'.
|1 week 6 days ago||Also the name factor||
I agree with you on all points. I also think the name "Appalachian" in the school title is a big factor. If they lost to Delaware St, it would have been worse, but without the redneck-y name, probably wouldn't have had the same effect.
|1 week 6 days ago||Why isn't this a worse loss?||
I know it isn't a bigger loss than the Horror (prestige, fewer games in football, etc), but this was a worse loss, wasn't it? Ap St was around #50-80 in computer rankings, or around half to 2/3 down the 1-A list. Computer wise, this is more equivalent to the Baby Seal game, much worse than Toledo.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Actually hurts||
3 on the shot clock moving away from the basket without Walton's play. This gives them a chance to regroup
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Credit||
There hasn't been much defense by UM today, but this guy just hit 2 more 3s with good defense in his face
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Trifecta||
A charge, a blocked shot, and a shot clock violation all at the same time
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Really?||
History might disagree with you. Jan-Feb are often worse than their Nov-Dec. (and I don't mean absolute records due to cupcakes). Their mid-season poorer showings are often why people think they overachieve in March
|2 weeks 4 days ago||They are all sick||
Ha, "this is no excuse basketball team". But she somehow knows all of their excuses
|2 weeks 4 days ago||But I like him||
He is versatile and solid. MSU has a lot of good role players. Stars? Not so much
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Dawson on that final play||
Funny how they don't say how bad Dawson blew that final play. Got bailed out, but still a terrible play
|2 weeks 4 days ago||That was called||
A few minutes ago when Valentine gave up the 3 point play
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Dumbest sports argument||
'refs shouldn't decide a game'. Only idiots say that one....IMHO
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Too early||
To give that 6th foul.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||OSU's O||
Oh boy. 3rd consecutive year without more than 1 decent offensive player (last year they had none!) Great D, but they will not compete with elite level teams until Matta gets some scorers.
