Re: K-State vs Pitt

I am most troubled by Pitt only needing 2 assists to beat KSU. They just went 1 on 1 and made almost 50% from the field and or drew fouls. This team got pushed around and needs to develop some toughness but I expected them to struggle this year 🤷‍♂️ I agree with you, here. I was thinking the same t...

Re: K-State vs Pitt

Let's think about it this way. When a team fouls another team, it's a turnover if you miss the free throw. When you miss the free one, you reward the other team's aggressiveness. The foul may have occurred when you were ready to shoot an easy one, etc. You miss, you turn the ball over. So, when we l...

Re: This Pretty Much Wraps it Up

The president gave an order. Follow it, and shut up. People whining that Trump did something horrible. Well loddy-da. Don't like, elect your own president. So, the president is a king after all. "Follow it and shut up" sounds too much like dictatorship. Yes, he gave an order and it has to be follow...

Re: Offense

Obviously, the team is struggling with generating offense coming out of the gate. I'll throw out some thoughts, here, and open it up for discussion. First of all, we all hoped Mike would be producing some double digit scoring this year. It's not happening right now although I believe he is capable ...

Re: K-State vs Pitt

This game established some key facts. 1. When this KSU team shoots under 25% from the free throw line, they will very likely lose. Both Xavier and Carti are pressing too much. There is a difference between leading and doing it all. The result is two career 70% free throwers going 2 of 9 from the li...

I have never piled on on Weber - I like the guy actually have since day one - just stating the obvious - market conditions dictate if the team is winning people are happy if they lose people are pissed - I have no skin in the financial game
Then I stand corrected and apologize.

Re: K-State vs Pitt

To show you how the game is called, go back with me to right after Pitt marched to the line 6 times, within a minute, to take a 6 point lead. During this time, our guys drove to the basket twice, at least, and never got a foul call. After Pitt got the six point lead, Cartier is dribbling out on the...

Re: Recruiting Failures have caught up

I guess as long as Donars keep donating, advertisers keep supporting, and people keep buying tickets our coaches will keep giving scholarships to crappy players. It’s market driven folks. Call it what you want but money drives the machine. I could be wrong, but were you the poster who was really pi...
