    Getting harder to reel in those 5* guys and even harder to keep them. Like you....happy to see them struggle a bit...but likely this is just temporary as I think they have some quality on the way. They had a mature team last year and did well....now not so mature and not playing smart basketball. ACC is balanced and while FSU is probably the best, UNC is still a factor but to see Clemson beat Duke and UNC in just over a week......sure was fun.😁
  2. True....and Nebraska has been so much better since they cut him loose. Was obviously the right thing for them to do...
  3. The NCAA is slow but relentless in many ways. I don't think Wade is off the hook....maybe temporarily but I'm looking for LSU to get hammered too for allowing it and taking no action.....well other than firing their AD who tried to rein in WW. LSU is not a blue blood, despite their recent football success....and I see no reason for the NCAA to turn a blind eye to them like they do to the true "blue bloods". JMO...The bengals will get theirs.....just might be a while.
  4. Totalitarianism? ....you mean like when the FBI lies to judges about search warrants....and then spies on private citizens for political reasons......yep....still waiting on the democrat outrage over that matter. Just to be redundant....but I'm not interested in your view and am not seeking your approval. And why would I care what you think on the matter anyway ?
  5. 1. I was not seeking your approval of my comment 2. YTF should I care what you think?
  6. If I recall the Pentagon was the organization that said "no injuries"....so maybe there is need for VFW and Pentagon to discuss the issue too. As for DT's quote.....how is that wrong. I have respect for the VFW but JMO, wonder if the entire VFW feels this way or if this complaint represents some individual who is speaking for everyone else. I'm always a bit leery about such unattributed quotes....
  7. A winnable road game.....not too many of those on the schedule.....need to steal this one some way and get out of town with a W.
  8. probably but you have to read the fine print in an agreement...not just listen to what the person says....it's obvious that the parties were not in agreement before the interview. BFD.....a fuss between a media person and a politician....something new.
  9. Be patient...ichy will be along soon to slap a "face palm" on all of your posts. He's probably up in Iowa at one of the caucus gatherings...
  10. Agree....and it is not necessary for this to happen for the team to be successful. JMO but if he rebounds and plays some good inside defense, hits 75% of his foul shots and every now and then jams one home.....that should be enough. A double-double (10 and 10) or something like that is a huge contribution for him considering that he will generally play about 20-25 minutes at most. I wish he had better hands but it's what it is....and he rarely does anything that make me wonder "what was he thinking".
  11. Yep....like in football, coaches make playing time decisions by what they see in practice. I guess DC earned some extra playing time today based on his last game....but he was back to playing like he had earlier in the year....and eventually ended up scoreless and on the bench. I recall a comment from last week by BP....if a guy does not play defense, he's not gonna play.. That's likely what we were seeing today. On the other hand, the players in the game for the last five minutes were downright scary as they failed to work the clock and took inadvisable shots and let the lead disa
  12. At the end I'm happy to have AW in the game....at least he will not take some wild shot at a bad time like DP....and like AMc is inclined to do at about anytime he is in the game. Good that AMc was hitting some 3s early but JMO, that's not a good role for him. Nice to see him hit some but a miss is pretty quickly a fast break opportunity for the enemy. AW has his problems but he plays pretty smart and is not gonna do something to hurt the team.. and his FT improvements are significant. ..JMO
  13. Still wondering where the DP from a couple years ago went. Just seems to have lost his shooting eye and touch. I expected him to be a major offensive factor for us this season....but just not happening.
  14. A win is a win....but a really ugly game....and nobody there today to play the role of Cambridge …..and foul shooting about did us in again
  15. This is a bunch of seniors playing like freshmen....
  16. What the heck was DP thinking.....AU trying to give the game away......just foolish basketball the last few minutes....
  17. Early departures and the transfer portal make it difficult to maintain a high level of depth these days. Bama and LSU have both been losing a lot of Juniors the past few years and you just can't count on bringing in comparable talent year after year. Should be an interesting year in the SEC West in 20 20
  18. Lots of important players in their final year. As even the blue bloods are finding out, you can't always just reload when you lose your starters. Hoping to see more from the bench is the season moves on.
  19. Funny thing is about a week ago someone posted that DC needed to be permanently on the bench since he was not helping the team at all. And last night he carried the offense....and the rest of the team had an off night from the field....especially from the three line. Saturday should be an interesting game...
  20. I guess it has happened but I've yet to see a good coach leave voluntarily because his team lost "too many games". I expect that mature coaches like Steele are more concerned about how their "unit" can do better and contribute more wins.... rather than looking for other parts of the team to blame for the losses. And keep in mind that most coaches who voluntarily leave a school for a promotion end up going to a school that has had problems winning. Presumably that is the challenge....but also why the opportunity exists. Maybe it's just a coincidence but seems now that CGM and
  21. Hard to imagine what the evening would have been like without DC playing out of his mind. Overall play has been only fair. Hope this is not one and done for his contributions..
  22. Who is wearing #35 jersey tonight...…..never seen Cambridge shoot like this....
  23. JMO but penalties were announced and just barely more than a "wrist slap" for most of the participants. DeSouza out indefinitely....and probably gone for good IMO. Can't believe that will be the end of it. NCAA fines schools $100K for kids rushing the floor....and nothing for a small brawl that involved people not in the game? Well, maybe not yet?
  24. True....in the past season we have had folks in great numbers wanting to fire about half the major coaches....typically starting after the first game or two. Just my opinion but KS has partly buffaloed many on this board....mostly the players we have on defense are better than the results in many games and the defensive stats are good but not exceptional. AT4life is correct...all season we were watching WRs run away from our DBs or see that what are called 50-50 balls, mostly going to the other side and I don't think that was KS's idea of a defensive scheme..
