  1. Yes they are better. That being said, I'd still go overseas because your chances aren't great for either.
  2. Jacobs had the same lofty accolades that the freshmen this year have. He was a 3 star recruit with power 5 offers. The reality is that most college freshmen need a year before they are ready to contribute at the next level. Expecting all of these freshmen to come in, play 20-30 minutes and put up numbers anywhere close to what they did in high school or AAU just isn't realistic. And when they don't it's not the end of the world. They are usually playing behind other guys that were just as good as them coming out of high school. This isn't exclusive to SLU. It's how college sports works. The players at this level are much stronger, longer, play faster and play smarter than anything any of them have seen before. Jacobs has been on campus over a year, knows Ford's system, has spent a year with our strength and conditioning staff, and knows what he can and can't get away with at this level. The same can't be said for anyone else outside of the big 3 and Hankton. The summer in between freshman and sophomore year is usually when players make their biggest jump. He'll be fine.
  3. Lol I don't think Hankton will play any 3 this year, let alone a 2 or a combo. We're REALLY selling Jacobs short lol
  4. Lol right. IDK the relevance of this post today or any day, but I don't know how difficult it is to talk about more than one topic per day.
  5. IMO it's probably going to depend on what position they put Weaver at. If they make Weaver the backup pg, then I think Jacobs will get minutes at the 2 spot. If they make Weaver the backup 2 and make Yuri the backup 1, then I think Jacobs would have to either beat out Weaver or might be the odd man out.
  6. Really the only things that we really can learn from this was that: 1) We are pretty good at shooting, dunking and passing when there is zero ounces of defense being played. 2) Ain't no way in hell TJ is 6'4 3) KC and Jacobs look noticeably bigger while French and Goodie look slimmer. 4) Our dancing is not NCAA tourney ready yet
  7. Airballed his first but made his second... Might have made another 1 or 2
  8. Is it going to be streaming again?? Do we know where?
  9. This... Shaq had multiple shooting coaches lol
  10. The tough part will be to see if we actually have better offensive players. Shooting is definitely important, but creating your own shot in the second half of college basketball games isn't easy. It will be nice to have better scorers, but it's easier said than done. It looks like right now we might have one other person on the team that will be able to create their own shot this year outside of French and Goodwin. Hopefully adding all of these shooters will give French and Goodwin more space to make plays. Also hope that both spent time improving their shooting.
  11. I think he's a 5 Star in ESPN... He's really good. Was easily the best player on their team.
