that is obviously the risk. that said, if he didn't improve, he would have been about the only starter under JB that didn't improve each year.
|1 hour 5 min ago||maybe an nba check||
there are plenty of other checks available over seas, if he wants to go that route.
|1 hour 22 min ago||too bad||
but he was never a good shooter and had a poor handle. not a good combo for a small forward in the nba. damn, we coulda used him though this year.
|3 hours 46 min ago||interesting take||
also, if both um and osu grab more out-of-area kids, that actually may leave better scraps for dantonio. sparty gets its fair share of ohio kids.
|1 day 5 hours ago||go figure||
i was at the game near the other end of the court. and i thought that it likely went off his leg with the way it went out of bounds. they did take about 5 min to review it. no replays though shown at the game.
|1 day 14 hours ago||also||
how about pressing when you are up by two possessions with under 30 sec. at least surprise them every now and then. trap the guy that gets the inbounds pass. then what? he has to pass back to the inbounds passer. that uses up time.
JB never does this. one play had their guard drive the distance, dish to olah for an easy layup - 5 sec. another possession had their guard get the pass, drive the distance, step out of bounds; only 5 more sec. then the bad TO, etc.
press the SOBs and burn some time. JB is very stubborn in a few of his end-game strategies. and it has burned him several times. twice tonite alone.
|1 day 14 hours ago||hmmm||
i guess you missed bielfeldt's pass tonite.
|1 day 14 hours ago||bullshit||
2013 had irvin and walton; both top 40 players. and donnal was also 4 star.
|1 day 14 hours ago||dumb dumb dumb||
to use per game averages for the year. those guys played 3-5 minutes/game before the levert/walton injuries. since then, they combine for over 16 pts per game. pretty damn good for overlooked true freshmen.
that said, i don't expect them to be the best players on the team but they will certainly be very solid contributors going forward. and (barring more injuries next year) this team will compete for the BIG title and finish no worse than 4.
|1 day 14 hours ago||disagree||
he has done a great job coaching up players but he has had poor end-game mgt in some games.
i would say, best job ever at coaching up players and poor job at end-game mgt. so kind of a push. this team is one less injury away from being 12-5 despite the end-game mgt.
|1 day 14 hours ago||ok||
buy a clue. if we just had a healthy levert or walton (just one of those guys). we would likely be sitting at 12-5 in the BIG right now. ya, JB made some piss pour decisions down the stretch, but the fact he has these kids competing is nothing short of remarkable.
|1 day 14 hours ago||twin teske?||
teske is 7'0". i will look forward to 20 min each out of a jr doyle and a frosh teske.
|1 day 14 hours ago||and||
udoh transferred early after JB got here. but he should know that. he should also know that guys like burke, stauskus, DMo, GRIII and McGary would all blow up and turn pro at least a year early.
|1 day 14 hours ago||cronin||
7 footer but had a chronic injury. horford 6'10 but transferred when he finally could have helped. teske 7'0 coming soon.
|1 day 14 hours ago||moron||
just for the fact of saying we have guys making dozens of free throws in a row when almost nobody in all of ncaa has done that
|1 day 14 hours ago||sure||
i'm sure burke showed you his transcript
|1 day 15 hours ago||fuck you!!!||
we were one bad call on a blocked shot from winning a natl title in 2013. and we were one injured back away from winning again in 2014.
|1 day 15 hours ago||just stop||
to equate osu and um on the ethics scale is laughable. tressle knowingly cheated. i think fisher was a patsy at worst.
|1 day 15 hours ago||uh||
let's fucking see. JB's 2012 class is all in the nba. matta is still struggling with a bunch of seniors.
|2 days 55 min ago||two comments||
1. JB please get Wagner. Great shooter who can also play above the rim.
2. It's difficult to come down hard on Coach K when no charges were filed in either case, as the OP correctly points out. however, there was a case a few years ago at a basketball program in the mitten state where charges were filed against two perpetrators and actual admissions of wrong-doing where noted in the redacted police transcripts. yet, those two players went on to play all 4 years with no punishment. that coach caught zero heat.
|2 days 1 hour ago||i love blimpy's||
but it was as much for the place itself as it was for the actual burger. old school, deep fried everything, crazy workers...and the quint on a kaiser with the works.
|2 days 8 hours ago||yep||
it's just math. hopefully, he gets good inputs to perform the equation. GRIII did not.
|5 days 4 hours ago||doyle||
not a good game for him on the offensive end. MD is a team he should have success against. they don't have a good big. 2-7 from the field and a few missed bunnies.
|5 days 4 hours ago||my point||
was JB would have made a better player out him.
|5 days 4 hours ago||yep||
he's definitely improving. confidence is the key.
irvin is improving his overall game too; especially his dribble drives. 3 more assists today and he should have had a couple more.
|5 days 4 hours ago||smot||
0-5 with 1 pt.
he really did nothing once he left JB and UM. he would have been a solid contributor the last two years at UM. who knows, he may have been the difference in the two tourny runs.
|5 days 4 hours ago||well||
at least we did very well at the free throw line? 13-15. but so was MD. our FT defense has always sucked for some reason.
|5 days 4 hours ago||nope||
free cups of coffee to all attendees over the age of 65
|5 days 4 hours ago||very true||
but JB allowed it. it's pretty well known that MD is a good 3 pt shooting team and pretty poor inside the arc. so the last D you should play is the 1-3-1 which allows open 3s. the fact he stuck with it so long is inexcusable.
plus 10 min of lonergan in the first half was also dumb. i can see giving him a few minutes to give the guys in foul trouble a blow, but you can't sit there and watch your lead turn into a 9 pt deficit with 3 starters sitting next to you.
|5 days 4 hours ago||why?||
just because of dumb ass fans? most away arenas have dumbass fans.
i've seen them play several times. none of their players come off as d-bags to me.
