  1. I think what is happening with the band is just a reflection of a larger problem in the athletic department and the basketball program. It is about money, power, control and the ability to receive credit for things. NIL is viewed as a huge threat by some athletic department personal, coaches and even some boosters. It is why I believe we still haven't seen a collective roll out. People in the athletic department are worried about losing control over a large amount of donor dollars that justify many of their existence. Some big donors are probably worried about losing influence to a collective. Travis Ford is worried about why the program needs a $2.5 million recruiting basketball coach when a hundred average joe fans can chip in $500 a each to get a guy like Jadis Jones to come here in 2024. When many people feel threatened in their positions, they try to show their power to everyone.
  2. That defense is going to cost Mizzou some games they should win this year though.
  3. It is amazing how a team with so many new players and a new coaching staff can look so cohesive on offense.
  4. In the last 5 minutes of the SIUE game Yuri had a layup blocked, a stupid turnover when he exposed the ball to the defender, had another layup blocked, missed a layup, caused Okoro to foul out with an illegal screen and missed another layup. The stat sheet gives Yuri one turnover in the last five minutes, but in reality he caused the ball to be turned over to SIUE six times in the last five minutes. We were up seven when Yuri had that first layup blocked. He had four layups blocked in the last ten minutes of the game and missed another two. Is Yuri the only problem? No, but what has happened to him at the end of games where we have blown big leads is not what you want out of your PG.
  5. After the game it was announced that Ream signed a new contract with Fulham. https://www.fulhamfc.com/news/2022/december/26/new-deal-for-ream/
  6. So Ream scored his first ever Premier League goal in Fulham’s 3-0 win in the return of EPL play.
  7. I don’t know if Cal can afford Gates. Ford is making a half million more than Fox is at Cal.
  8. I will take losing a coach to a P5 school for the success that precedes that move.
  9. Just looked at Pomeroy’s rankings, Tigers are 12th in the country in offensive efficiency. So this game is just a fluke tonight offensively.
  10. I haven’t really watched more than a few minutes here and there of Mizzou this year before tonight. The Tigers have are excellent offensively. I don’t think they can hold up defensively through the SEC season, but the way Gates has them playing offensively will hold up. Great ball movement.
  11. I love Yuri, but.......... Last night in the last 5 minutes of the game Yuri had a layup blocked, a stupid turnover when he exposed the ball to the defender, had another layup blocked, missed a layup, caused Okoro to foul out with an illegal screen and missed another layup. The stat sheet gives Yuri one turnover in the last five minutes, but in reality he caused the ball to be turned over to SIUE six times in the last five minutes.
  12. As things stand now I would expect between 7-9 of of our top 9 players in minutes to be gone through either graduation, transfer or just being done playing college basketball. You think this year has been frustrating? It isn't going to have a thing on next year.
  13. She wasn't here long, but it is hard to argue with Debbie Yow's track record.
  14. I think the talent is good, even if the roster isn’t constructed in the best way. It is a top 40 roster. The scary thing is after this season the talent will start filtering out quickly as players graduate. The program needed to show results this season to give a boost to recruiting which has definitely slowed down over the past few seasons. To answer your question about recruiting battles, we haven’t won any in recent years except those involving players that Tate had a connection to. We haven’t won on guys that can make real difference without some connection to Tate since the likes of Jimerson, French, Isabelle, etc.
  15. 100% correct. I was going to post something very similar. All the ball movement is connected to Yuri and it makes it becomes too predictable and easy to defend.
  16. I think we agree on the team being a reflection of their coach in high pressure situations. The fact Ford falls apart in those situations as a coach is sort of amazing because he didn’t as a player.
  17. When a team consistently blows double digit second half leads over multiple seasons with different players, the one constant is probably the issue.
  18. He should skip the presser and look in the mirror after chewing out the players.
  19. KU -3.5 at Mizzou was some easy money a couple of weeks ago, too.
  20. I think Tate could have coached the team to a win tonight. We lost to SIUE. We are at rock bottom.
  21. Anyone think we can get a home game in the CBI?
  22. Part of the problem is we only managed one tournament with Goodwin and Ford.
  23. I actually felt good for Barone after the game
