    Dedoch is N

    Hmmm, I still don't know what it means?

    Dedoch is N

    It is pronounced (dee doe-ch)

    Another way of looking at it...how many minutes per game are you expecting from Isaiah and Isaac at the 4/5? Secondly, do you expect Isaiah to play a little bit at the wing? If you project those two at the 4/5 positions, I do not believe you will get any more than 30 minutes each per game. That leaves 20 minutes combined (minimum) per game for Tanner and Dedoch. Any reduction in the average minutes per game for Isaiah and Isaac, creates even more opportunity for Dedoch and Tanner. AND, if Isaiah plays any minutes at the three, then even more minutes are available. Can Nana or James play minutes at the 4/5 if we go small? Can you ever see us go "big" with Dedoch at the 5, Isaac at the 4, Isaiah at the 3, James at the 2 and Amir at the point? Point is, we have an athletic team with a number of lineup possibilities. It should be interesting how minutes will be distributed, especially early in the year.

    OT: The Key to Our Home Court Advantage

    Will the measures take care of both pigeons and blue Jays?

    I just saw a five minute video of a recent practice. It certainly appeared that Martinez had the stronger arm. I only opined that it would be Gebbia based on word of mouth. I won't be surprised as to who starts...unless it ends up being Bunch...that would be surprising.

    OT: The Key to Our Home Court Advantage

    Provides for a rather prickly walk in and out; but the fact it made the papers indicates it is rather slow news day.

    Here is where I am sort of leaning towards Gebbia being the starter. We need someone who can and will distribute the ball. I am not saying that Bunch and Martinez can't, but I believe that is where Triston will shine. Tristan can stretch and spread the field. He has plenty of playmakers surrounding him where he can distribute the ball. If he needs to run, he can. We seem to be very deep in the skill positions...now, if we can only block!

    New Graduate Manager

    The position most recently was manned by Wes Eikmeier, but his two year run expired. Wes is now headed to Law School (as we need more lawyers than basketball coaches). That said, our new Grad Manager is Vincent Fritz. Vincent played at Missouri Southern under KU ex-player Jeff Boschee. His momma is Ann Costello, who played here in the 80's and his Dad and other family members have a rich playing and coaching history. Welcome to the fold Vince!

    I have no clue how tough their schedule was, but it is good to note that Dedoch's stats in conference play was higher across the board.

    Dedoch is N

    If you go out to his Juco site, there is a good article on him leaving for Nebraska. Sounded like his coach was in love with him.

    Lincoln is having a rash of recent incidents involving minors...including this crime. I am not sure what the heck is going on.

    I know this is covered on our recruiting site, but I don't believe everyone has access rights there. This is big news. The video on this kid makes it appear he has good offensive skills. For a very late pick up, this appears to be a solid addition.

    What should not happen this season is that our offensive lineman getting shoved backward by the opposing defensive linemen at the snap of the ball. Over the past few years that seemed to be a recurring theme. When Tommy was the QB, it was not unusual to see nine men chasing after him...four defensive linemen along with our five offensive linemen. Very embarrassing for a team with an offensive front nicknamed the pipeline. Hopefully the aforementioned weight gain also is accompanied by quick feet and increased strength and leverage!

    Way O.T. trivia questions

    Jim Bivan struck out Babe in his last at bat, so it must be him? And I thought he asked for two autographs, I am pretty sure Musial, was one and Stan humbly signed. I thought he had asked for Cobb's but was turned down...
