  1. Great film work. Thanks. Several of the errors involved not reading the double teams and failing to rotate the ball. What i would call making the easy play. But also looked as though the player rotation by IU didn't seem to take the opening created by the double team. Should not be difficult to fix.
  2. One thing, perhaps the best thing, about Utube is the old live music videos. I viewed one of "lawyers guns and money" Great stuff
  3. Does Deron have some previously undisclosed injury ?
  4. I was very pessimistic after Michigan State. Really proud of how they hung in there and won at Maryland, although you could argue that it should not have been close given the terps injuries.. Before the season I marked Nebraska down as a loss. Now I don't expect a win, but it sure seems more possible.
  5. Great article. It is one thing to have talent and another to have character. So pleased Coach is seeking to bring in great kids such as Dawson. Hope we get to see him develop first hand
  6. Northwestern has a coach that can get his team to play the same type of controlled offense and defense as does Michigan State. No I don't see that as a win. Rutgers I feel good about. Not Maryland and I'll believe beating Purdue when I see it.
  7. Sorry, but i'm afraid I don't share the optimism. That's 0 - 12 versus ranked teams. When the game was there to be one (third and two in their own side of the field in the fourth quarter, for example) they would not make the plays to win. This is going on three years and nothing is different. He was supposed to be a defensive coach, but the defense can't stop even Michigan State, which will never have a great offense, in year three. He's had the three best recruiting classes in program history but will struggle to make a bowl game (frankly I don't see it) and will not have a signature win against a ranked team. Again, I apologize, I never post on the football page and thus feel bad for venting, but I'm tired.
  8. Agree with the inside out being fools gold. Someone above pointed out, even Bennett adapted and used the 3. Duke, despite so many advantages, couldn't shoot 3s or free throws. You can win a lot of games in the regular season, but to win a championship you have to be able to shoot. And I would go further and say shooting must be the focus offensively, especially if you want to get the free throw line. I have been critical of Virginia, and they proved me wrong. However, my gut tells me Virginia's style is not sustainable, they had three games in the tournament they should have lost, and i believe you have to get some fast break points or early offense out of your defense.
  9. If you saw the second half of Gonzaga, you'll know that TexasTech will have seven fouls in the first five minutes against Duke. No way does Texas Tech get that many no calls against Duke. Mark it down
  10. Haven't seen the game threads, but that WSU team was better coached today.
  11. totally agree. Experience is a great teacher. Justin had a bad game against OSU but bounced back against St. Francis. Hope he continues to improve.
  12. I posted yesterday that i was encouraged by the offensive efficiency over the last few games. Guess I spoke too soon. I only got to see the first half and I was amazed at how bad we were offensively. When we weren't dribbling into traffic and turning it over we were shooting some bricks from three. Very disappointing that Archie didn't have them prepared to look for the three early. You knew OSU was going to pack the paint, but we came out totally unprepared to shoot. No confidence. Speaking of confidence, you knew Smith was going to have a bad game when he missed two relatively makeable drives to basket early.
  13. Don't look now, but SI.com is now predicting Romeo as the No. 20 overall pick, although the writer acknowledges that some team may value his potential higher. Suggests Romeo has too any things to work on.
