  1. We know less about this upcoming season that any season in our history. We have 1 player returning that if things go well, won't see the floor unless in mop-up duty. I wanted to see others thoughts about what we may expect going forward with this year's team compared to last year. Last year was supposed to be our best, most complete team we had in 20 or so years. I didn't turn out that way, but we have already discussed that plenty. Moving on... PG: Glynn Watson vs. Cam Mack: While Glynn was a good/great player for us that last 4 years, he was still wildly inconsist
  2. I honestly have no clue what the coaching staff is doing. Do we even teach our players how to post up? Do they know how to seal off the defender for either a post entry or clear out the backside for a pass over the top. Every player at this level should be able to post up. I notice that St. John's had their guards post up Glynn effectively last night. I don't think it matters at this point. We have no offense that is recognizable. Jordy should be fighting for position on the block and no where else. The reason he tried to dribble as because he got the ball 17 feet
  3. Living in Iowa, I fully expect Iowa State to be down this year. If NU doesn't 'win' the secret scrimmage I'd be really disappointed. Iowa will also be much better than Iowa State. ISU is ranked that high in the pre-season based on their performance the past 3-4 years. It wouldn't surprise me to see ISU's kenpom ranking be greater than 85 at the end of the season.
  4. I don't see Watson and Allen playing together much. That would be a small backcourt. PG: Watson / Allen / Taylor / Gill SG: Palmer / Nana / Gill SF: Copeland / McVeigh / Roby / Taylor PF: Roby / ?? / Copeland / McVeigh C: Jordy / Okeke I still see one glaring hole on the team and Hans would fill that nicely and if Copeland isn't eligible first semester, that hole is even bigger. I like having both Allen and Nana getting minutes, but allowing them to transition to college ball off the bench. I'd like to think all starters will get 20-30 minut
  5. Patting myself on the back a little....not sure why it took Miles so long to see it. From November 29th (following the Va. Tech game):
