  1. You mean fouled and they called it a block ? Sorry i'm over it I really am.
  2. It looked to me that maybe for the first time, shooters were actually stepping into shots rather than shooting flat-footed. Makes a huge difference. The pass is very important but the shot prep is just as vital.
  3. Maybe it was Nebraska having an off night, but I thought the most encouraging thing was our three point shooting defense.
  4. I said this last year, and it seems true again, but everyone but Green seems to lack confidence shooting the ball. If you aren't allowed to shoot until the shot clock is at zero, you aren't going to make many. The offense has to take open three pointers in rhythm, which may be off the first pass, not necessarily after nothing else works.
  5. Watch for the words "we're cooperating." Kansas won't and nothing will happen to them.
  6. 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.
  7. One thing, perhaps the best thing, about Utube is the old live music videos. I viewed one of "lawyers guns and money" Great stuff
  8. Does Deron have some previously undisclosed injury ?
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
