Questions: Does anyone know if they are going to put cardboard fans in the seats later in the year and if someone will be appointed to take half of them to the parking garage with 5 minutes left in a

Great participation by the fans for a 'No Sit Wednesday'.

Just wanted to stop in before my wife has to take me to the ER, because I have a body part that has been uhmm... well as the small print says if it has been over 4 hours  go to the ER.  Well it has be

Off topic sort of. RIP David Maas of Quick Change.  IMO one of the best halftime performance acts to appear at PBA.

 

I can remember seeing the Shim-Shams perform at Devaney, and my Mom worried about any of them falling and breaking a hip.  While I didn't particularly enjoy their performances, they certainly seemed to enjoy themselves.

 

So here's to all the Shim-Shams that are no longer among us!  God bless!

Wish I could find a you tube of them to post sometime.

Those kids were even more athletic than I thought they would be and I'll say this for everything I've heard about the football team and Duvals training the basketball team looks like they could show up to the gridiron and kick some ass.

 

Dont have alot of negatives thought the FT shooting and perimeter defense need to get better those are things that can and will get you beat in conference play.

 

Still think we'll get beat up in the paint a little bit.

 

Not sure who our main scorer is IE if we need someone to come out and give us 20 any given game BUT we do have alot of guys who can put the ball in the bucket if that makes sense.

 

Still think this is a .500 team wouldnt surprise me if they finished even better which is 1 hell of a improvement from last year and this team will not be easy to beat.

 

Very fun game to watch and this will be a very fun team to watch. Everything I could ask for and more.

Curious to see Teddy's progress.  Felt like a little Petteway in him and trying to force things to get his game going which he doesnt need to do.  Much easier for him last year, and wanting to see how he does against tougher competition.  We'll see how he handles that....just my $.02

 

I don't think we really need to speculate about how Teddy would do against tougher competition. Just go to YouTube and watch him against teams like Oklahoma and KSU from his true freshman season two years ago. He's already faced numerous top-10 Division I programs and put up double digits in the scoring column. He'll be fine.

1-NU scored 102 points and, by my count, missed at least 23 shots from within 5 feet. Also missed a few more FTs than I would expect they will going forward. I know McNeese was a disaster defensively, but NU easily could've been around 115-120 points. That's crazy. 

yeah, I agree. although for some stretches of the second half, mcneese played some really solid lockdown defense, believe it or not. adversity helps growth, and tomorrow with nevada gives us (according to Kenpom) an even matchup challenge.

I recall last season when I predicted we’d score @ least 100 points on 7 occasions (little did I know we’d win SEVEN games) but this squad might stir the echos of some classic Nee/Tubbs shootouts...

It was Tubbs his first year at OU that said they were going to run and shoot and he hoped by year 2 they could run and make a few. That hopefully will describe Fred’s year 2 as well.

I was fairly impressed with this team.  The athleticism on defense will give teams fits.  Free throw shooting seems improved.   3 point shooting was better.  I do have worries down the road. Teams are not going to let us run.  How do we handle that?  Can we find a half court offense?  

 

Not much to complain about.   47 point season opening wins are much better than 19 point losses.

I think the first five minutes of the game was a good example of what we’ll do in the half court. It was pretty efficient yesterday.
