  1. That’s the problem with a lot of refs. If something looks awkward and/or unnatural they blow the whistle and then make up the call. Looking awkward isn’t against the rules.
  2. The way the rule always read was a step in a half. That's how layups have been shot since the beginning of layups. Right side would be right-left and release before the right foot comes down again. The only difference is the Euro doesn't go in a straight line. And technically, the step count doesn't start until you' ve gathered the ball but that would make a refs head explode.
  3. Why? You get a step and a half on the way to the hoop - the Euro just doesn't go in a straight line. You are correct though that refs see something new and immediately blow the whistle because something had to be wrong there.
  4. England is in our group and you only have three group games so 1-4 is not possible?
  5. Reading the story I doubt he would want to be a US citizen. Where he’s from seem pretty important to him.
  6. Foreign students aren’t eligible for some strange reason.
  7. Part of the reason the cupboard was bare was because everyone knew he had no support from the AD. That's why Hunter left. It is very difficult to recruit talent to a place everyone knows the coach is on his way out.
  8. These announcers just said we have good officials after Verge gets knocked down again.
  9. At this point Verge is an officer and gentleman - he’s got no where else to go.
  10. In past years ushers would have extra red shirts and they would have been told to put one on or move. I don't know how they fell down on the job this year.
  11. I could be wrong but I believe the title went to Greenville because it was Union Omaha that had the COVID issues leading to the cancellation. I was at the semifinal game and afterwards my wife asked, "We're they supposed to win by that much?" I said - No, No one is supposed to win by that much once you get past U-10.
  12. They may have been "layups" but many of the first six were forced, out of control shots as well. Many of them were not good shots.
  13. There’s no jinx, it’s lack of effort and most of that is between the ears.
  14. That and the poor shot selection/no assists, non-existing rebounding, and failure to keep the man you’re guarding in front.
  15. It will get better but this looks like a 14th place big 10 team right now.
  16. Don't mean to, OK guess I do mean to nitpick, we shot 14-18 from the freethrow line for a 77.8%. Take out Walker's 2-4 and we shot 86% as a team. Now Walker is going to shoot FT's for us so that's something he definitely needs to continue to work on. I can agree with everything else you said.
  17. There will be a big difference between playing Peru State and Purdue. The conference schedule will call for more minutes from our bigs.
