    GDT - Bills dam up the Beavers

    Imo most of getting a crowd in the game is on the team. Give us something to get excited about. Right now our offense is maybe a notch above watching a phil ford 4 corners offense in action. I will say it was better today but up to the last few minutes, not enough to get out of my seat much beyond yelling at stupid referees calls (i.e. thatch's fantom foul for waiving his hands at his man ) Standing just to be standing might be the stupidest fan trend in the history of the world. Standing when something fantastic happens makes sense and has value.

    kenpom isnt the NET Rankings. i have no doubt they are close, but not the same necessarily. there are 32 conferences. everyone is guaranteed one. that leaves 34 at large bids. start at the top and work down and see how skinny that gets real quick with the power 5 probably averaging 5 or 6 at large teams alone. the chances of the 10th conference getting multibids shrinks quickly. it was different when we were always 6 or 7th top conference.

    do you have proof they havent? they werent even ranked above top 10 last year and the conference is worse this year.

    even if you go by 40+ net rankings a non-top ten conference is not going to get multiple bids. go look at last years rpi rankings by conference and see how many of the bottom 22 conferences got multiple bids.

    because that is what i am saying will limit the A-10 to one bid.

    If you want to accept the billikens have only 2-3 conference losses and win the regular season, but their "net" is in the 80's and they dont win the conference tourney, ill take that bet
  9. If true ford should bench them. He doesnt so again comes back on ford coaching
  10. sunday watch how often everyone stands while the guy with the ball stands there with the ball over his head or on his hip. nobody moves. way too much standing.
  11. anthony was likely brought in to be a practice player. perfect attitude to fill the role and not disrupt team attitude.

    well keep watching that NET ranking. as long as we are ranked in the 80's we wont even get an nit invite. need to get to 40 then we can start getting hopeful.

    Good recruiter, bad coach?

    im not ready to throw in the towel on isabell. the kid is fearless and does have some skills. he just needs to be put into a position he can succeed. that is on ford to do. the likes of him turning into allen iverson or kyrie irving is a tough expectation and that is what has been thrust on him with the offense we are utilizing.

    it happens every year in the bottom 20+ conferences. the problem is that this year there is a very good chance the a-10 will be one of those 20+ conferences
  15. i dont mind "hero ball" if it is from a player capable. love the enthusiasm and confidence. again the problem is the way we attack. not the attackers. too often when the go button is pushed it is with too little time to develop anything or the ball is in the wrong hands or the wrong spot. that is why the likes of last year hines and now isabell come out looking selfish when in reality what choice did they have when it came time to go? this is on ford. i love his talent finding ability. he now needs to step up his x's and o's ability. he has the parts, use them correctly.
