  1. Has there ever been a roster situation like we're seeing here? Where nobody has ever played with each other before? I'm sure there has been, but I haven't been able to find it.
  2. Not sure I'd call it proof...yet... The common belief is that it typically takes 10-15 games for JUCO players to adjust to the D1 level. A 2 game sample for all of those guys is really small. It's probably worth holding off judgment on any of these guys just yet. This is the one area I've been pleased with how Cross has done so far. He's handled his shots around the rim pretty well. The guards will learn how to finish through that kind of traffic over time. I remember Tai getting swallowed at the rim his freshman year. By the time he left, he'd become excellent around the rim. Give the guys some time. They'll get it.
  3. IDK, I guess if you can draw up a play to get the ball to within a foot of the rim and a clean look, I'd take that every time over a jumper. A bit better of a pass and maybe a hard lesson for Jervay to learn about trying to do too much in that sitautation and we're having a different conversation.
  4. Coaches have always seemed reluctant to do it. I'd like to see it done more. Or at least some.
  5. Gosh, it was such a pretty play. I'm fairly confident he drew up a lob. Just didn't quite execute the ending. Everything that led up to it was just masterful. Shame it didn't work out in the end. He's drawn up a number of things like this out of deadballs. I'm quite excited about seeing more of this over the years.
  6. Well, this season sure hadn't gotten off to the start we'd all hoped for. This team has the talent to win some games. I firmly believe that, but they're gonna need some success soon or it is gonna unravel on them in a hurry. A roster where everyone is new to each other sometimes doesn't have much holding them together. They need to see themselves be able to face adversity and have some success doing it. Tonight was almost it. That Green 3 at the end of regulation was pretty cool. We left so many points at the line down the stretch... We got our first glimpse of the flopping technical foul. I believe Thor got the game warning somewhere in the first half. And what a spot for SUU to get called for it. I like Kevin Cross in the paint. I think he does a good job of finishing at the rim. I don't like him around the perimeter. The defense was a lot better today. It got out of sorts a bit down the stretch, though, but I though early and throughout much of the first half it was pretty good. I thought SUU had some pretty good players on their roster. The crowd was pretty engaged today. I was expecting a pretty sleepy arena. We had a whole bunch of kids around us who either don't go to many games of they've ever been to a game, but they were totally into it. I was surprised Yvan didn't get into the game down the stretch. Did he play at all in the second half? Would have liked to see more of Curtis, too. This team might not win many games this year. Probably good to start accepting that. But I hope we see them improve game to game. I do think we saw that from Tuesday to today. Shame we didn't see them pick up a win or two this week. Kavas is gonna have to start hitting some shots or he's not gonna see the floor much... I thought we saw flashes of what we've hard about both Green and Mack being today. That's all I got at the moment...
  7. Couple thoughts: - I don't have any expectation Easley will see any sort of significant minutes this year. Did you mean Curtis? He needs to play more than the nine minutes he got last night. - Cross was all sorts of lost last night. If that trend continues, he's gonna get a lot of mental reps during games. - Cam seemed to be able to get to the rim regularly, but if he can't finish, then no, he can't get a layup whenever he wants. My guess is it's just an adjustment to the step up in competition.
  8. I think there's some recency bias here. We'll see how things turn out as more of the season shakes out.
  9. Thanks. Wasn't able to get to this last night. Last night was pretty unsettling. I don't think I expected things to feel the way they did. My wife and I were sitting at the game and commenting about how strange it was watching such a new product. The arena was the same. The jerseys were the same. The on the court issues we've seen year after year were the same. The people we were sitting around were the same, but nothing else was. I've never experienced a new season where almost every single player was new. We all have to relearn every single thing. I wasn't mentally prepared for that when I walked into PBA last night. I'm sure we'll get to the point where I'm comfortable with things again, but last night wasn't it...
  10. Not going to be able to make it tonight, so if you want to go or know someone that does, my tickets are available.
  11. I believe they're trying to argue last year should be a redshirt year. He only played in four games at Pitt before transfering to Nevada at semester. If the was cleared, he'd be a sophomore with three full years to play.
  12. I didn't get to watch this one, but it sounds like a lot of guys played and they ran the Tigers out of the building. Nice to see that happen when it's supposed to. Here's to a new season!
  13. What I've heard is that he won't be doing any Nebraska games, at least not this year. If he stays with this gig and doesn't get back into coaching, which I believe he wants to do, perhaps that could change over time.

  15. Can't make it to the game tonight. I have two tickets in the 200 level if someone can use them. Would like $10 for the pair.
  16. All streaming services I've used (YT, Sling, Hulu, MLB.tv, etc) are all at least 90 seconds behind. That might be a little extreme, but that's what it feels like... All put me a play or two behind, which can take away some of the drama. I'm not disciplined enough sometimes to put the phone away between commercials.
  17. It also lacks MLB Network, I believe. YoutubeTV has that and I think the NFL and NBA channels. I tried them both last year and thought YoutubeTV was a superior product by kind of a lot. Maybe Hulu has caught up.
  18. If they're gonna send them by email, that stuff often gets out within 48 hours of the event. That's been my experience, at least.
  19. Add a 200 level ring of seats and turn what would be the 300 level into a party deck.
