  1. Mason, McIntosh, GW, Cowan, Carr. Went with potential but was torn leaving out Sanders and Bohannon is 7th
  2. The more I think about it the more I think we will see that front line Roby, Copeland, Jack quite a bit. Anytime the other team does not have a big true post scorer we could do it in my opinion. Then you add GW and whoever at the two gives us a lot of scoring and mismatches. Could be a lot of fun to watch. That is the type of team I hate playing against
  3. Is it me or does Tai always looks like he is fading back from the waist up on his jump shot, think he would be more consistent if he went straight up and down.
  4. I agree with Jacob that Costello is a really good high school player that I do not think will ever get minutes. He does have one specific skill that Trueblood did not and that is a knock down 3 point shot. Those guys always have a chance to contribute if they work their back side off to become good defenders, etc. I am glad he is giving it a shot but there is a reason there were not a lot of even low level D1 or D2 offers. Hope like hell he proves me wrong though.
  5. Isn't it possible they needed to wait till the surgery to get some more medical information to base their claim on? I have no idea how these things works but guessing they have to provide pretty detailed medical documents on why he is basically taking a medical redshirt after 7 games.
  6. Man I hope Copeland gets back to 100%
  7. I agree and I was not trying to criticize his parents at all, you have to look out for your kids first and I would be emotional as well. I just think the expectations were not matching and it is not surprising to me that they are making this decision. I wish Jeriah and his family the best and wish they would reconsider, I see a lot of potential.
  8. I do not know or have not talked to his parents but I have seen them at games. It was very obvious to me from early on they were not real happy with his PT. In one of the first few games he was not getting any time and they were not happy, then he got in late and hit a bucket or two and he was pretty fired up. I am not saying they were right or wrong but just that I have thought all season he might be gone after that.
  9. I am not a fan of his post moves. Although he had a nice one to start the Mich game. He either tries to over power or get to the other side of the rim. He needs to perfect the face up 10 footer and really get a go to jump hook since he is always shorter than his defenders. I wish he would watch the kid from ND, similar size post guy who scores at will it seems.
  10. Agree Norm, that shot looks nice to me and not real slow at all. I would like to see more of his handle but the shot does not concern me and it looks like he has deep range. That being said we need another guard who can play. A real good frosh or a grad transfer. I am not convinced on Gill and Taylor will never shot close to 40% on threes in my opinion. I do like his pull up but there it is not pretty from deep.
  11. Previously I had the same line up Norm except for Morrow instead of Jordy. I think you are right though about this and I would favor Ed off the bench maybe save his foot a little as well. We need to consistently have 3-4 guys who can knock down shots and demand to be guarded at all times. We just do not have that this year or really since forever. I really wish MJ would consistently hit his jumper, he seems to get unlimited 15 footers to 3 pointers. If Copeland gets those same looks he might average 20
  12. People would have freaked out if Daum would have been given a ship. He was almost run out of SDSU his redshirt year. Give the kid credit for working hard and blossoming late but I do not blame NU or CU for not going after him at all. Hollins would be a better Taylor and Thurman could have been a nice bench player but I do not think either make us a significantly better team. I think they are at the right level and good for them on the success they have had. Wish they would have made the tourney, UNO is a fun team to watch.
  13. I somewhat agree. I think TDH would be a much better version of Taylor but he gets a lot of leeway at UNO giving up a lot of easy buckets but he does get a ton of steals as the trade off. I also think Thurman could be a bench player in the Big10 but not a star like he is at UNO. Do not think Hahn would even play, good shooter but no def and no other big contributions. Think Jack is much better than him overall.
  14. Plus Tai is basically our PG at least half the time. Glynn lost his aggressiveness the last month for some reason. People know to make him go left but he still gets open looks but he has not been taking them, seems to over think like someone told him to distribute and not just score.
  15. I do not think we can this year which is a problem. I still have hope MJ can start making those shots but if not I think we will need to look at him coming off the bench. I think he would be perfect for that role anyway as he brings a lot of energy.
