I rewatched that last shot.....man, that was halfway down. Just the way it's going early.While Illinois didn’t play particularly well, they were a little snakebit by great looks that didn’t fall.
On this one, I'll just say that I don't favor five year players in a 13 player game. Don't think that a redshirt is the answer very often. So, for me, get the most that you can out of any player, including Samba, then recruit an even better player.Deep down Underwood had to know this was going to be a bad year, with that said why didn’t we redshirt Samba? I understand wanting to see what you have, but I just don’t get it. Set yourself up to be better not only next year but for the next 2-3.
Officially worried about Freshmen after 7 games? Six months ago, those guys were going to their Senior Prom.Ayo and Giorgi will be great but I am officially worried about every other freshman on the team.
Agree. Thought that was the single worst moment of the game and a big swing.I think we were going on a bit of an important run in the first half and then Kipper got that tech that gave them to foul shots and the ball! The momentum
stopped and we never got it back!
I compared him to Thorne IF we were lucky when we got him....WOW, who knew that was going to be so far off? Yea Yea he is coming back from injury to try to fight his way through a final season, commendable but not helpful. Thorne was way better and he was BAD.We need to give Kane some valuable court time because De La Rose is a 7' waste of space
Still think he can have an Augie type career when done.Where would we be without Giorgi? For the record Giorgi is going to be really really really really good. He’s going to be up and down this year but overall I think he’s a pro. Love his attitude and confidence already. He’s got those intangibles you can’t teach.
No. You are right. The individuals that have been given the chance have gotten it done. Right? Maybe it will play out different as the season moves along but I doubt it. Adonis is too slow to play in this offense and BU is handcuffing Kip and the young kids (minus AYO) to where they are too afraid or don't have an opportunity to play in the flow of the game. Just my thoughts but tell me you didn't see that 3 man freshmen fast break GIF from practice and think there were better things coming. We'll never see it if they don't get to play meaningful minutes. More likely to see it happen against us......with freshmen on the other side.Yes it would be awesome if BU played freshmen that don't know or can't play the offense or defense in winnable games.
iffy is being polite, IMHO.....looked like alot of no contact anticipation calls by refs...saw Ayo get bumped on a rebound and no call...plenty of contact by ND on some of our dribble drives and no calls....that stretch of 3-4 and one calls on us looked suspicious at best andA couple of thoughts...
- WE HAVE TO STOP FOULING SO MUCH!!!! (although some of those calls were pretty iffy by the refs)
- Trent and Ayo were just off. If one of them played even 50% of how they normally do, we win. How often am I going to think/say this about Player X this year? Guess that's the curse of a young team.
- Seemed like we came out slow/sloppy/lax at the start of each half. Need consistent effort the whole game.
- Giorgi lets so many rebounds that are within his grasp get out. Not sure how you coach/teach better hands.
- Aaron and Giorgi offensively? VERY nice!
- Kipper? I just don't have the words...
- Why didn't Alan Griffin and Samba play more? 4 minutes total between them?
- Does look like Jones is out for a bit: Jones Suspended
LOL at being worried about Freshman after 7 games. Their careers are definitely doomed.Ayo and Giorgi will be great but I am officially worried about every other freshy on the team.
