    I'd guess Travis would draw up a play for Jimerson with the hope he gets hacked. and goes to the line. Or possibly Linssen since he's been deadly from the FT line. Most likely though he'd leave it up to Yuri to create and find someone open for a good shot. If we had Javonte you can bet he'd be facing a double or even triple team which would have to leave someone open for a clean look.

    LOL, you’re the worst poster on the board and seem to not know sh!t about much. Are you a healthcare professional? Did you listen to the postgame? If not, then STFU.

    When it’s all said and done, Jones has been the primary difference maker this half with great contributions from Fred, Linssen, and GibJim.

    I do find that recital ad funny. Get your head out of your sax, is classic.

    And don't drink the water or mixed drinks w/ ice cubes. We don't need no stinking stomach problems.

    The games are aired on CBSSN. By the way Stadium TV is free if you have ROKU. That’s the network airing the Boise St game.

    I think you’re discounting the nicked up factor and how that affects the player. In our 13-14 season our 5 guys got to a top 10 ranking prior to conf games. Then we started getting players nicked up. I think both Jett and Evans were playing with minor injuries. Consequently we fell in the rankings and went out in the second round. Yes, these guys are in exceptional shape, but little nicks and bruises can take their toll. And it’s rare any team goes thru a whole season without a player(s) getting banged up. I like what STB’s is doing but am skeptical they will go thru the entire season unscathed.

    Doubting the iron man 5 approach will take you far in regards to the dance. This should be deja vu for Bills fans from the 13-14 season. 5 guys playing 90% of the minutes will take you only so far.

    slu72 got a reaction from billiken_roy in 4 game observations and surprises   
    Just curious as to which players have surprised or performed as you expected so far. 
    Gibby- pleasantly surprised at his going to the hoop to score. A little disappointed in his 3 pt shooting. 
    TJ- All around improvement comes faster than expected. 3 pt shooting a surprise. 
    Okoro and Linssen- Better inside play than expected from both at this point. Okoro could be a real force as season progresses. 
    Yuri- as expected. Hoping his shooting would have improved. But he’s gotten bolder taking it to the jar. 
    Nesbitt- A little better than expected. He’s a FR so figured there’d be ups and Downs. More ups so far. 
    Fred- Great Fred last night after 3 lackluster games. Expected more consistency. Hopefully, we get Good Fred going forward. None of us, however, know what he’s dealing with in terms of medications. He’s earned our respect. 
    Other: 
    Traore- pleasant surprise
    Williams- mystery abounds
    Strickland- hopefully gets more minutes. 
    Jones- capable PG backup. Expected.

    Can someone name the last time SLU played a game in Chicago? Glad we won’t have to whine about that for a minute

    Let's not root against Russell. He came to us as a walkon. I don't blame him for leaving for an all expense paid trip to Edwardsville.

    I look at Larry Brown as a move by the Memphis powers to be a mentor to Penny with the goal being to keep Penny, a local favorite, while at the same time keeping the fan base happy. No doubting Penny's recruiting abilities. He's right up there with the worst of them; Calipari, Pearl, et al. But getting premium talent is not enough to get the job done. You have to be able to coach it as well. Brown will bring that talent to fruition, while at the same time tutoring Penny in the finer points of coaching. I view Brown as more of a consultant than an assistant coach. He's old enough that a HC position is not his goal at this point. That should ease Penny's mind so he's not looking over his shoulder wondering if his replacement is sitting next to him on the bench. Memphis wants Penny to succeed as he is a favorite son type coach and firing him would be a bad optic. They're gonna give him everything he needs to make Messphis a big time power.
