NW roster has 2 seniors and 1 junior, they are very young but not untalented. They also are one of the tallest rosters in D1 on average with I believe 4 players 6'10".
They lost to MSU by 5, had Indiana beat at Bloomington, destroyed Boston College in Boston. Before this year is over, they are...
Alaska, you are pretty spot on, we had
15 more shots than MSU
Tied them in total rebounds
Had 9 more offensive rebounds
Had fewer turnovers
Had only 13 fewer free throws
but if you can't throw it in the ocean from the beach, it's probably going to be a long night
The fact that Ohio State is last in the Big and still ranked higher than us tells me that the voters know exactly what is happening. In 1979 Magic and company at MSU won the conference with a 13-5 record including a loss to last place NW. They won the national championship.
I thought that was...
I also think we have turned the corner but with one huge asterisk. This team would not have lost to Miami or given up the lead at Maryland but at crunch time, the last 5-7 minutes, this team lately has been 1 junior, 3 sophomores and one freshman playing big minutes together. This is still a...
I know statistics are for losers but if you look at the stats from the MSU game they are stunning:
We had 9 more offensive rebounds
We had 15 more shots from the field
We had fewer turnovers
We tied a great rebounding team for total rebounds
They only had 9 more free throws
50 years ago Larry...
Excellent seats for today's game and seeing it up close, I remember at the 10 minute mark telling the guy next to me that "No one will foul out today"
Two very physical teams that know how to play defense and refs that let them play. A lot of contact allowed around the basket early led I...
Another name from the past, remember Francesco Badocchi from KC Bishop Miele. We chased him pretty hard. Well he has left the Virginia program to concentrate on his music degree. One redshirt year and very little floor time last year.
Garth Brooks is right. Thank God for unanswered prayers.
Slowly but surely that fanbase is coming to the realization that CM is not the answer but that they are for financial reasons stuck with him at least thru 2021. No player development, uninspiring offense, etc. They don't believe that he is capable of taking them to the top qtr of the SEC...
Most all of the fan base that remembers Evashevski has died off but 40 years ago fully 50% of the fan base wanted a 30 foot statue of him erected and the other 50% wanted him hung from it.
For you youngsters under 60, Evashevski wanted his successors to fail so he hamstrung recruiting. Coaches...
Look at Iowa's record the 15 years before Fry. The program was a train wreck including 1 winless season.
Want a good read? Read the story of Forrest Evashevski, ( the Wikipedia account is pretty accurate) Michigan All American who became Iowa's head coach and quickly built them into a national...
