    Debate: Last Night's Bunnie Win

    Oakland Raiders -- January 19, 2002. The day the NFL became the Tom Brady League.

    OT: Duke vs UNC

    Where is Eric Montross on the list? Brad Daugherty? The best big on this list is Tyler Hansborough? Seriously??!

    OT: Midtown Development

    They never got to experience the Thursday morning sh*ts either. It was usually worth it, though.

    Rhodey from da' Couch .........

    I didn't think it was possible, but when Foreman puts the ball on the floor he is as bad as Reggie Agbeko. How does someone get worse every year handling the ball. That shouldn't happen until you're an old man.

    Richmond from da' Couch ......

    I can understand the quick hook when one blows a defensive assignment. It can lead to free points. But Isabel lets his man drive past him with ease and sells out for steals all of the time. I wish Ford would treat him like a first year player, too.

    OT: Ford’s seat getting warm

    Have you been drinking Fudd, Duff Man? Other than the FT shooting I don't know how you can say French has been disappointing. He plays hard all game, logs lots of minutes, rebounds hard, blocks shots, and shows great passing ability. He essentially gets double teamed every time he gets the ball and still has managed to move the ball better than most of our other players. Yes, the FT shooting is terrible but that can be fixed. I am as excited about French as I was before the season. I expect great things in his future.

    OT: Ford’s seat getting warm

    This may be a bad offense, but I will take this one any day over any of the offenses with Ash Yacoubou on it. Those offenses were just as bad but without a Bess or French that could make buckets. It wasn't that long ago.

    GDT: vs The SPAHderrrs

    I've been impressed by the development of Bess and French from last year to this year. Goodwin has not developed anywhere near there, or really anywhere at all. I can't pick up on one skill he has this year that he did not have last year--or any improvement on the skills he had. He is falling behind others in his class. He is going to have to have a huge summer if we are going anywhere with him leading the team next year. I believe Thatch and Hankton could have huge summers and really boost their game, a la Bess and French.

    Duquesne from da' Couch .....

    -We were having our way in the paint in the first half. It seemed we were looking for 3s in the second half--even though we were dominating in the 1st half. -I don't know what is up with some of the passing from our guards. Just careless. Way too many TOs! -The officiating was atrocious. -Hooray for our FT shooting last night. It was nice to see that we were capable of that. -We had 23 TOs, terrible officiating, and shot 10% from 3 and we only lost by 4 at Duquesne (where we do not usually play well). This does not change my outlook for the year one bit, though I am getting more and more worried about JG. It is like the MonStars took over his body. Let's hope Bugs Bunny & Company can bring him back.
  10. This is another thing we have in common with the Big East schools--except for Creighton. I think McDermott has to travel a lot farther than just Omaha and Lincoln to find the collection of talent the size of St. Louis.

    The Bills over St. J by 13

    Everybody knows that Charlie Brown's kryptonite is the Little Redhaired Girl. The wildcard last night for St. Joes was the 3-point ball. They hit some big threes to stay in the game. Also, they made their FTs. Of course, they won't have the comforts of the Hagan Arena so I expect poorer shooting Friday. Defend the 3!

    GDT Patriot League Rams

    I am expecting a big game from Hasahn French coming back to his home state. I imagine he will have some family and friends at the Rose Hill Gym. Too bad the Full Wolf Moon isn't for another 6 days!

    NET, et al.

    The MAC is buoyed by Buffalo, and the WCC by Gonzaga. In years past, the A-10 got propped up by Xavier or Temple. It is hard getting a high rating without a highly ranked team. A highly ranked team also provides matchups for the rest of the conference teams to play against helping every other team's SOS. Just look at the MVC now that Wichita State is gone.

    The Bills over Ford by 9

    I get the point about the defense not being broken, but the offense is. And using the press and trapping would be used to generate transition buckets because we are having a little trouble getting them the traditional way. I don't think we need to use it in order to get stops. We can do that the way we have been doing it all season. I don't want to switch to some gimmick defense a la Shaka Smart, but I would like to strategically employ that press defense in order kick start some scoring. We often go looooong stretches of the game without buckets. When Coach feels that scoring dearth coming on, we could throw the press on, pull it back when it seems appropriate (we pick up some fouls, the opponent starts breaking it, etc.).

    GDT @ La Salle

    Geez, guys. Let's be a little more supportive of our team. JJ and CAG left for their own reasons. This has caused some young guys to be thrust into the fire before they are ready. They will improve. "I would hope you would support who we are. Not who we are not. These (eight) individuals have made a choice to work, a choice to sacrifice, to put themselves on the line (31) times in the next 4 months, to represent you, this (university). That kind of commitment and effort deserves and demands your respect. This is your team".
