Re: Florida A&M Game Notes and Thread

learnin, I'm not sure what coach means by comfortable. Does that mean that he's too casual? Too careless? What? I'd like to see him take ownership of the team. Somebody better. These freshmen may need some a$$ kicking at times to shake them out of their deference. Maybe one of the upper classmen ne...

Re: Florida A&M Game Notes and Thread

Cartier tries to be too cool out there. He acts like fundamental basketball is boring to him. He's always trying to make the spectacular play. He's a showman, not a leader. This team plays off of him - lots of one handed passes, casual coolness and placid expressions. Someone out there needs to sho...

Re: Florida A&M Game Notes and Thread

We are up by 27 early in the second half and Weber subbed in mostly newcomers including Williams who had a bad game and Sloan. That andlet them go on a 11 to 2 run. Diarra had 3 turnovers last night. Because a couple of them were so obvious on bad kickout passes, he is being called out more than he...

Re: Weber's Presser Comment

I watched the first half of Maryland vs. Marquette. Howard looked very average. It looked like Maryland played a 3 - 2 zone against him. We can beat them if we play good defense and if the referees don't go crazy calling fouls. Well, you said a mouthful. Howard was great when refs were coddling him...

How quick are they?

There's only one way to combat "quick". Recruit "quick".

Or:

Change defensive schemes when you’re a step slow and the opponent is hitting shots

Re: K State vs Bradley Game Notes and Thread

You pin it on the man responsible for bringing two championships to Manhattan after none for 30 years. Constructive criticism, of players, refs and coaches are part of sports and to be expected in the analysis of results. Agenda- driven, biased, unfair criticism should be called out for what it is....

Re: K State vs Bradley Game Notes and Thread

It’s already started. Saw an Illini fan crawl out of the woodwork on Twitter to brag about how Illinois’ team is so much better than K- State because Weber s such a horrible coach. Can you imagine? While Illinois has been at the bottom of the heap for the last seven, Weber has won two championships...

Re: K State vs Bradley Game Notes and Thread

3 mediocre recruiting classes in a row, as cited above, where should one cast one's gaze as to the as to locate the person responsible ? inquiring minds yearn to know You pin it on the man responsible for bringing two championships to Manhattan after none for 30 years.

Re: Weber's Presser Comment

i'd like to see this team with murphy and shadd able to play. murphy, particularly, is a significant missing piece and shadd might be a better alternative at the five spot coming off the bench. clearly, this team is not very good presently. but they'll get better. weber has a way of putting stuff t...

Re: K State vs Bradley Game Notes and Thread

This team is going to lose a lot of games this year. Like I said in another thread, the ceiling for the current players is very low. I'm just looking to make sure they all play hard, and they are. Just not a ton of talent right now. I just hope we can weather the storm of Weber bashers that are soo...
