8:00 start on a work/school night. I used to never miss, but I will miss some of the late games this year. 1230 by time I get home and work 12+ the day after kicks my arse.Game was a lot of fun but man that was the most pathetic crowd I have seen for a top 25 team. Maybe about half full at best.
Shannon is everything advertised and more. His hustle is something special.
Mayer looked like he was stretching his back several times during the game. I don't think he's ever going to be healthy this season.
Epps and Clark both looked really good. Clark to Dain on the pick and roll was a thing of beauty in the first half.
The coaching staff was pretty hard on RJ but he definitely looked better on the offensive side today.
Coleman needs to grow up. He’s had these issues since he arrived on campus.Maybe I am looking too much into it, but Hawkins has had a rough last 2 games and towards the end of the game didn't have the greatest body language on the bench and had T.A. in his ear
Anyone think there could be an issue where Hawkins expected to be the top dog the team when it's now clearly Shannon's team?
I wouldn’t read too much into things. Not a great game for him with 5 turnovers, and he tends to wear his heart on his sleeve. Add in the optics of Brad yelling at him or TA in his ear, and I think to us fans it can look bad. And I’m sure TSJ’s role and status on the team isn’t something he’s only realizing now. I’m sure it was fairly apparent in practices. He has a lot to play for with regards to this season as well as his future. He’s fine.Maybe I am looking too much into it, but Hawkins has had a rough last 2 games and towards the end of the game didn't have the greatest body language on the bench and had T.A. in his ear

Yeah and against lower tier competition somehow makes it worse for me. I mean save it maybe for someone you are on par with or better. It just seemed like a bad look against teams we are supposed to dominate.Coleman is too seasoned to still look incredulous after every foul call. Also, during the KC game, I saw him get in the player’s face that he yammed on.
I like his game, but he’s annoying as hell with that attitude. I can’t imagine how I’d feel if he was a player on another team….think Mulcahy.
This weekend will be a process for almost all of our guys. As will playing in new venues throughout the year. The baskets look different. The sounds are different. The ball bounces different. The rims bounce different.
