  1. No offense to Henderson, who was outstanding, but TJD was a complete freak this year. Not sure why that is even a conversation. You will be missed TJD!
  2. I voted for Kopp - mostly because this is pretty much a run-of-the-mill game for TJD now (I really hope we send him out with a long run in the tournament)
  3. The Big Ten is definitely appears stronger so far than advertised in the off season, but I still think Maryland is upper half. Without a lot of thought I have them #5 (I have us #1 as homer, as we clearly do not have the same resume as many of the others, yet): Us, UI, MSU, Mich, UMCP
  4. How is Creighton ahead of us? What is that based on?
  5. I am nervous to say it out loud, but I kind of think we are going to blow their doors off.
  6. Agreed, I would not bet on any team right now. I thought it would be a down year for big ten basketball, but performance of the teams suggests that there will not be a lot of easy games.
  7. Honestly, it is hard to interpret meaning from the Gonzaga-MSU game for two reasons: It was on an aircraft carrier, which impacted distance shooting from what I saw. MSU turned around and beat Kentucky - suggesting they may be better than preseason rankings.
  8. I feel like Iowa must have already done this... 7 points without a touchdown is most Iowa football thing ever.
  9. An economist should probably weigh in, but my thought is that if there is a large enough critical mass of famous schools, the conference containing them might have a disproportionate power when negotiating - almost like a monopoly.
  10. Coach Williams was not lying about the "other than Duke" crowds in the Dean Dome. I have been to games Assembly Hall against low Division I teams that were louder than any non-Duke crowds I have heard at the Dean Dome. Assembly Hall Rocks.
  11. +1 I agree with this I go to other teams boards all the time and even post occasionally. Some of the boards have interesting discussions and are friendly to outsiders. I do not generally go to the PU sites though. Every time I have, I find it at the limit of readable. This reminds me: Thanks mods for keep this board (mostly) readable.
  12. +1 We should not hope that anyone on this team leaves.
  13. +1 Slightly better play and/or better depth and we could easily have won 6-10 more games: 'Cuse - embarrassing we lost with last year's team @ Wisc - blew the game down the stretch @ PSU - slightly better play @ Iowa - better depth @ NW - better depth and we overcome the loss of those missing Wisc - better play and better depth @ OSU - slightly better play RU - slightly better play @ PU - slightly better depth to close it out Iowa in BTT - slightly better play and depth... Even 6 more wins and things look very differently.
  14. I do not buy the Kopp transferring theory. Unless he can get a waiver, he would have to sit out a year. What would his waiver reason be: "It would be psychology damaging to only play 18-20 minutes a game."?
  15. I disagree with this; at least for the near future. Reasons: With the free COVID year, there are really 5 classes for 4 years. Roughly estimating, that is 1.25 times the usual number of available players - there are going to be more quality players out there for everyone. With NIL, there will be more players who do not turn pro early - same thing. With the portal, a mid-major should be able to snag underperforming players (e.g., Lander) from high majors Everything just changes the game. Those who are in front of it for the next 4-5 years will be big winners (both at the mid and high major). Those who react slowly will slide.
  16. Are you saying that the Pully-Lausanne and Geneva players make $300 per month OR that players based in Iceland make $300 per month. $300 is basically one meal for 4 in a decent restaurant in Switzerland.
  17. The other site is saying it comes down to availability of a roster spot.
  18. 10 minutes a game would be an amazing success for his first year and means he is coming in ready to play.
  19. I would not make a big deal out of it. We had several players transfer out (including Durr who transferred in). UT has a pretty good class coming in, probably just a question of minutes available.
  20. If it is TJD leaving, RTZ needs to work on his red and white dots and googly eye usage 🤣!
