Interesting.  We will be their first true road test as well.

 

We'll be finishing up a pretty brutal stretch of 8 games (and 9 of 10) against them in this one.  Could be a job-defining stretch of games for coach Miles.

on another KU note, apparently their 2018 5 star PF recruit Slivio De Sousa is going to try to reclassify and enroll at the semester break and play this year.  He's seeking a waiver from the NCAA to do so.  First game he could be potentially able to play?

 

Yep.  @Nebraska   He's a top-30 guy and would fill a desperate need on their roster.

Not sure if in this instance he'd actually have to be enrolled first.

Mine's probably not as thorough or in-depth as yours.

 

Illinois -- they just fired the guy many here wanted us to hire last time we hired a new coach. Miles be like Keith Richards looking around at all the "hot" coaches who've been fired and he still has a job.  "Haha, MFers.  I'm still here."  Anyway, Illinois.  There's a reason they sucked last year. Probably not all coaching.  Probably same reason they'll continue to suck this year.

 

Indiana -- hated Crean.  Hated that they fired Crean.  I want someone at Indiana to hate.  Maybe it'll be the new guy.  Anyway, they have the cool, candy-striper warmups.  They might not be too bad this year.

 

Iowa -- what is wrong with their coach?  I give 'em 3-2 odds he strokes out sometime in the next 5 years.  I remember this line from the movie "Teachers" where the principal is yelling at a male teacher who got a female student knocked up:  "When we said to be a 'team player' we didn't mean to go out and make your own team!"  That's kinda what McCaffrey has done.  His best recruiting strategy appears to be continuing to get his wife pregnant.

 

Maryland -- their mascot is a turtle.

 

Michigan -- Crean's brother-in-law is turning them into a basketball school. Hate Crean. Can't stand his brother-in-law.  But Beilein can coach and he has players who can play.

 

Michigan St -- They have this guy named Izzo. He's not bad.  I guess he's OK.  They'll probably do alright this year.

 

Minnesota -- I still can't believe their turnaround from 2 years ago to last year. I think it was smoke and mirrors.  I think the real Minnesota showed up for their 1st round NCAA tourney loss to Middle Tennessee Southwest Immaculate Conception State College.  Granted, Middle Tennessee was 30-4 going into it, but still.  There's a long history of the offspring of big name coaches getting jobs based on who their dad is and crashing and burning.  Waiting ...

 

Northwestern -- NWU. NOT NU.  We're NU. They are MFing NWU.  And that's all I'm going to say about them until they accept the fact that we're NU, not them.

 

Ohio State -- We have to sweep those douchebags this year.  That's all there is to it.  

 

Penn State -- Little known fact: Their head coach is the bastard child of R. Lee Ermey, who, like Dean Smith and our very own @jimmykc, was born in Emporia, KS.  That gives him some basketball chops by the associative property of multiplication.  It's still Penn State.  

 

Purdue -- I mean, what can you say about Purdue?

 

Rutgers -- New coach.  Not that new.  Same old roster.  Their recruits aren't as good as they think they are.  PG ain't bad.  The juco kid we passed on is decent.  Top 13 conference finish is not out of the cards for them.

 

Wisconsin -- Their coach is Greg Gard. His middle initial is G. His parents clearly lacked imagination and he is NO Bo Ryan.

Haha nice one... you're just improving on what I got. Good hilarious material here 😁 

I'll give you an A+ on the analysis :)

Holy Cow... a game against UCF and NEB might feature enough bricks to build me a house if both teams shoot a bunch of threes.

 

In all seriousness, whoever wins the 3 battle might win that game.

Gardner Webb makes a valiant comeback and had a chance to send it to Overtime at the buzzer but fell short.  UCF wins 68-65.  Tacko Fall was a DNP.

Eastern Illinois lays an egg and drops to 0-2.  UGH.  Thought they would put up some W's this year.

 

I watched a little bit of that one, and EIU did not look anything like the team we played.  Shots that were falling for them against us were just ugly misses against Western.

 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
