Dangit. Now I gotta do picks over

Poole got beat good by mcQuaid tonight, and good .it was the difference.  

03/17/2019 - 3:18pm Brooks is a lot better than…

Brooks is a lot better than people think here...  when he plays a few minutes at a time, he plays poorly as he seems to force it... but when he plays in long stretches, he gets better and better...  I will be utterly shocked if anyone passes him.... DDJ is nowhere near being ready, despite his dribbling skills, and is a huge shooting liability.  Fact is, Brooks needs to get more minutes.

03/17/2019 - 3:15pm What I see in Livers is a…

What I see in Livers is a potential star... who seems to be the consummate teammate, and is very involved in the happiness of his teammates... and it seems that carries into his game, where he is so unselfish...  I wish Beilien would force him to shoot more, and to be more aggressive as a scorer...because my eyes tell me he is the best shooter on the team, and by a wide margin.   The dude doesn't seem to miss… I haven't seen the shooting percentage shots, but it seems nearly every shot of his swishes.

He wont go pro... but I reckon that one of Iggy and Poole, just might... If not, I can only imagine how good the team will be next year...  

03/16/2019 - 5:41pm Here's the rub....

Livers…

Here's the rub....

Livers needs to shoot ALOT more...been thinking this a long time, and finally I saw an uptick in shots... seems to have the sweetest stroke, and seems to be most concerned with his teammates and being happy... He's a great shooter and is such an unselfish teammate that he must shoot more..  I segway this to DDJ. He just isn't ready yet . Can dribble well but is a liability shooting the ball.  Am glad Brooks got his form back, the latter everyone has been sour on, yet they forget that for a moment Brooks was starting over Z.   We are really gonna need Brooks on our NCAA tourney run... 

Castleton had a rough game for the few minutes...John's has had an uptick..he's gotten bigger and to me seems much more physical...Castleton or John's I predict will crucially be needed at some point in the NCAA due to foul trouble...

 

03/10/2019 - 10:19pm Brooks is a good player that…

Brooks is a good player that's been in a scoring funk for a long time.... he is far and away ahead of DDJ, the latter just isn't ready.... he had that 2 on 1 breakaway vs Winston and had an easy pass to the trailer and was oblivious he was even there.... Beilein surprises me sometime in his substitutions.... instead of settting down Brooks and keeping him to layups during his long funk (which would have been the thing to do), instead he plays DDJ who isn't ready at all... play Nunez before DDJ...at least Nunez can score in droves...

03/10/2019 - 12:15pm Livers is underulitized, and…

Livers is underulitized, and Teske continues to start.   The new Donnal needs to be benched...the airballs deflated the team completely, and Teske now plays poor D in fear of fouls...

03/10/2019 - 12:09pm I thought the team was…

I thought the team was completely deflated after Teske's second airball… there is no excuse that this shit continues.... whether its maybe Sanderson's workout that weakening his wrist, or whatever, that he and coaches haven't addressed it.. he has been shooting airballs and wildly short shots the last four games....    the team just deflated, and then turns to hero ball from Poole.  Teske has become soft, and until he snaps out of this, I consider him the new Donnal, the team killer... start Castleton and maybe itll snap Teske out of this softness.. his D has been atrocious and soft, lately, too.

03/09/2019 - 10:15pm the team folded when Teske…

the team folded when Teske shot his second airball… then they got into his head, and he played NO D... no rebounds, no hustle... Teske deserves to be benched next game.... yep...  rewatch the video.  Start Castleton, who by the way, shold have dunked that score.

03/09/2019 - 10:12pm THANK YOU

THANK YOU 

Teske killed us tonight... he killed us the last msu game too....

03/09/2019 - 10:10pm didn't anyone see it ? …

didn't anyone see it ?  Teske melted down after his second airball…. the team deflated... no D from him.   no picks and rolls...    shocked how nobody saw the reversal tonight....   Teske turned into Donnal.  they better fix his shot, because he is absolutely killing us.

03/09/2019 - 10:01pm maybe those here will now…

maybe those here will now realize that dejulius ISNT ready....  and brooks is far superior...coaches have to limit brooks shot.

 

03/09/2019 - 9:58pm Its on Teske… these repeated…

Its on Teske… these repeated airballs have killed us.... it deflates the rest of team.. and gets the crowd going...then Winston will keep attacking him and he plays no D …. he has been a huge liability lately, and then I read how he had a good game.    How the coaches allowed these airball bricks to continue.... is this Sanderson's workouts ?  Whatever it is, it cost us the game... believe it.

03/09/2019 - 9:54pm teske is shot mentally... a…

teske is shot mentally... a liability...   two airballs in row... and plays no D.... he cost us game.  ever since his second airball we fell apart.

03/09/2019 - 9:52pm I was Teskes biggest…

I was Teskes biggest proponent for awhile, but lately he has been killing us and nobody sees it.  

03/09/2019 - 9:39pm I wonder if Teskes workout…

I wonder if Teskes workout regimen with Sanderson has changed .He airballs every three now and it kills us....

03/08/2019 - 11:32pm Purdue is in Indiana, and…

Purdue is in Indiana, and Painter's team has outdone their state counterpart for a long time... that's good enough....  they always play us tough, regardless of who they lose...   and its hard to say that hes an average recruiter...  you say he is an average recruiter then he must be an elite coach. better to say that he has had great regional success and going out west might not yield the same recruiting result.   Beilein admires his ability, and that's good enough, too.

I knew Skrepenak when a student... at Subway he'd eat like four footlongs...

03/08/2019 - 10:14am delta still flies the old MD…

Delta still flies the old MD-83 on the DTW-SRQ route, and my parents take that flight several times a year, and often wished Delta would upgrade those planes.

Interesting that the captain was learning to fly the older MD-83 plane and was training on it at the time, per the article, and I wonder had it not been him who couldn't get the plane in air, and had it been a regular MD-83 pilot, if they'd have aborted it.   Seems ironic.

And whats further ironic, that this inicident, lit a proverbial fire under Beilein and the team.  They played lights out afterward, and the program has seen more of an upward trend since, I guess almost losing your life can snap you out of lethargy.

so... winner on saturday wins the BIG ?  if we lose, i'd rather have had purdue win it...

03/05/2019 - 3:24pm This is why I've argued to…

This is why I've argued to let our best player sit the first 8 minutes if game, then let him play the rest .

03/04/2019 - 5:34pm I'm not gonna be down on…

I'm not gonna be down on Brooks as everyone else is, because I remember a time he was better than Simpson..... his shot confidence is rock bottom and it shows... if he sticks to layups until he gets some confidence again, it'll be good, because we will need him in the tourney, as DDJ isn't ready yet, and I don't understand why everyone thinks he is.... I'd rather play Brooks right now, sans the shooting. Even Nunez.  If we are gonna go 0-8 when X is out, why not play Nunez for the same stretch, and see if we can get our three point game going.

Simpson is clear and away our best and most important player...I don't think I have seen him miss a hook shot yet... I used to love seeing Kareem make hook shots and was disappointed nobody takes them anymore, until now.... and he has a few traits that the Piston's Isiah Thomas had.... now, lets hope next year they redo his three point form and shoot it above his head, because that is all that is missing from his game at the next level.

Castleton is gonna be a star as an upperclassman, and will be better than Teske, I predict... but needs another 30 lbs.

Am looking forward to Livers playing TE.

 

03/03/2019 - 6:34pm Matthews was our best player…

Matthews was our best player the first half of season and without him we don't go undefeated .he's is hurt now and was recently in a bit of a funk...but let's hope he comes back in the NCAA tourney to where he was earlier...

03/03/2019 - 6:12pm I disagree .he is slim..but…

IIRC  Fab fiver Jimmy King jumped 44, and he was considered the best leaper in college .

03/02/2019 - 9:10am Is John's playing out of…

Is John's playing out of position just to get him some playing time? If not, seems silly..because you don't want this kid pissed, being the guy we stole from EL.  Playing recruits out of position seems to occur too much here.  

03/01/2019 - 5:25pm Gary comes to mind here. 

Gary comes to mind here. 

03/01/2019 - 11:34am well, now that Castleton…

well, now that Castleton seems to have arrived.... why not start him, for first six minutes.... and THEN bring in Teske, and likely he'd be able to stay in the rest of game, where it matters.... its killed us when hes been auto-benched...      this thought isn't that diabolical...

03/01/2019 - 10:59am I didn't catch the game…

I didn't catch the game... but I hear we had a young player rise up... Castelton's 11 points in 9 minutes....     therein lies a problem... the opportunity cost sitting on the bench and only coming in in garbage time.  If there hadn't been an injury, Castelton might not have gotten the run, except in garbage time.

I am of belief, that, vs WEAK teams,  to start several of the young guys, and start to sprinkle in the starters after six minutes or so...   one, it'll never get to a rout or unrecoverable, and it gives great experience and confidence to the younger players... it also would effectively eliminate the auto-bench, so a guy like Teske can stay in the game for most of the rest.  This way, this opportunity cost disappears, because a guy like a Castleton or Nunez, will surface to us, like Castelton just did now.  Yeah, I know some will say, that I'm not at practice, etc...but as Iverson says.. its practice.

Currently, the inverse is in place, where these guys come in only during garbage time at the end, and acheives nothing, as nothing is ascertained, no real experience nor confidence is generated. 

Anyone else here agree with this idea?  I only propose it vs weak teams, and along with a few regular starters.

Id like to see Castelton, Johns, Nunez types to start the game, with our two most key players Simpson and Teske sitting out the first six minutes or so.

02/28/2019 - 8:04am Still don't understand why…

Still don't understand why Gary's sack totals were so low . The article implies in the NFL a coach will get him and get his sacks way up .  Thanks Mattison,...

02/27/2019 - 9:04pm Here is a novel idea... Play…

Here is a novel idea... Play a John's or a castletom or even a Nunez, from the start of game.  Try to keep it even score for ten minutes .Then let Teske play the rest of game, with no risk of fouling out.  Gives the young kids experience and confidence, and the first ten minutes it's hard to do real damage

02/27/2019 - 9:01pm Donnal LOL.  

Donnal LOL.

Yeah...she hogged all the coverage... FROM HER WHEELCHAIR...  don't be an ass.... the media bombarded her... don't diss her for this....

02/27/2019 - 12:48pm Thats crap... she didn't…

Thats crap... she didn't seek this attention.....  I for one think its great...  adds some color to the tournament.

02/26/2019 - 1:12pm well... he went out poorly…

well... he went out poorly his last game here, scored a donut i think...so the spots were surely there... but it sounds like he has minimized them, and maximized everything else...

i think it is under-appreciated, the rise this kid had made in our program...

02/26/2019 - 1:06pm geez.......   lets reflect…

geez.......   lets reflect on this here.....  the kid with no offers coming out of high school, busts his ass, and with superior tutelage, and is now starting for the NBA's Miami Heat... what a story...

this kid from Williams College... what a decision he made, to go learn from Beilein... and further to Duncan's credit... he turned his weakness (defense), into a real strength... was this Yaklich?

Either way....  not sorry to say that had he not transferred here, I'd say theres 0.1% chance he'd be in the NBA.

Duncan should be the poster child for Beilein's recruiting...    and he should send a fruit basket every Christmas to our staff...

Sorry but what does Gattis mean when he said its Minnesota time?  Do we open the BIG with them???

I reckon we have two new key coaches and they reasessed things with them...for instance, pesek hickson was probably shot down by Campanile who is in on a few much better players he prefers...

I don't know why I think this, but I like it when Colorado is a strong program .
