  1. Condolences for the family. Reality check for everyone else. Awful awful awful news, but if nothing else hug your loved ones and appreciate what you have, here and now. Tomorrow is promised to no one.
  2. Sekeue Barentine was good at 2 things: -busting his ass down the floor for the occasional easy bucket -inducing lane violations with his quadruple clutch FT attempts
  3. Add Oral Roberts to the ever growing list of 80s era MCC teams that have advanced to the Sweet 16 ahead of SLU. Best finish in parentheses. Xavier (2x Elite Eight) Marquette (Final 4) Butler (2x National Runner up) Dayton (Elite Eight) Loyola (Final Four) Oral Roberts
  4. The casino story was a smokescreen. There were reports from individuals that Carlos Martinez was at the Wheelhouse right before they got shut down the first time for not following protocols - and this was before anyone knew who tested positive or how much it would derail the season. Wainwright was out there in PR mode dismissing the casino story - but nobody in the media ever really dug into Carlos Martinez (and others?) clubbing activities leading to the team getting infected. Don't blame Gardner for having the audacity to call attention to it after we've never been given an adequat
  5. I thought I qualified my statement but reading comprehension is hard I guess. I'm not holding the first 2 years against Ford, just stating a fact that in 5 years not once has he had the team in a good spot for an at large bid.
  6. They were not in line for an at-large bid in 19-20 before the pandemic hit. I like Ford and he's had to endure a lot of BS that's out of his control. The program/roster is in a good spot heading into next year. That said, his record is what it is. He's 0 for 5 having his team in a good spot to earn an at large bid.
  7. Ford is a good fit for the program and the program is a good fit for him. If/when he starts making deep NCAA runs, there will naturally be suitors from the power conferences, but he's been there and he knows how tough it is to meet the expectations year in year out. He also knows he'll basically have a job for life here should he have that kind of success. He may one day leave but it would take a dream job opportunity. We should appreciate him, not take him for granted, but also not lose sleep over rumors/chatter about him moving/leaving.
  8. Here's that list re-ordered with made FG factored in, ranked by Ratio of FG + A to Turnovers - providing a bit more context for positives (made FG and assists) vs turnovers. Player FG A TO A/TO FG/TO (FG+A)/TO Claggett 657 347 246 1.411 2.671 4.081 Waldman 189 295 120 2.458 1.575 4.033 Ellis 3
  9. 1. LaTodd Johnson, 1979-80 to 1982-83 338 2. Tommie Liddell, 2005-06 to 2008-09 317 3. Anthony Bonner, 1986-87 to 1989-90 316 4. Jordair Jett, 2010-11 to 2013-14 295 5. Kwamain Mitchell, 2008-09 to 2012-13 280 6. Monroe Douglass, 1985-86 to 1988-89 267 7. Josh Fisher, 2000-01 to 2003-04 262 8.
  10. Over the last 6 games, Goodwin is averaging 18.7 PPG, 11.2 RPG, 3.7 APG, 2.3 SPG, 2.5 TOV, 50.0% FG, 35.0% 3FG, 71.9% FT
  11. We look like a team adjusting to the difference in difficulty between Easy and Hard
  12. Are you talking about Grandy's softcore porn onlyfans or the sequence of transfers the week leading to the situation 1?
