Oversight totally on my part. Although just announced he was out for today. Should have a big year for Bucks.
Harris. Position of huge need and will play lots of minutes right away due to defensive presence. Giddens is #2 for same reasons.
Some friends from high school are getting together and having a Halloween costume party. Getting harder to get a good day drink going on without the Mrs approval so doin it under the guise of Halloween party. Yellow Tshirt and black tape --> easy Charlie Brown.
After seeing the way the slobs played Saturday I just reaffirmed my commitment.
This team will likely be in about the same spot in the Big 10 as last year but will definitely be way more fun to watch. Excited for hustle and effort. Bigs especially. Will miss Shannon Scott but think Harris and Lyle will be great complements to each other. Harris defense, quickness, and passing ability and Lyle scoring, size and playmaking. Hopefully play lots of guys with press and man-to-man to create easy opportunities.
I'm thinking Grandstaff RS. Needs to bulk some. Could be a Stauskas like player in the future.
Maybe a Pat Elflein type emergence. Kind of unheralded gritty hard working kid that steps in the lineup in a big game and never surrenders the position again.
Curious to see how a Chris Ash departure affects our recruiting moving forward. Likely to get a big DC role or head coaching job in the near future, wonder if any of these recruits would reopen their commitments. Food for thought. Luckily to have Kerry Coombs/Luke Fickell who seem like they will be here for life
With Isisah Pryor announcing soon the rich could keep getting richer. Best kind of news.
Excellent if true. F5 refresh on repeat.
Former assistant coach and graduate of UC if I'm not mistaken?
16th is solid considering the season we had and the sleep walking nature of this team for stretches. People might regret not seeing Russell in person. Man that guy was special.
Cooper has the body type and measurements that I think will remind us of Vernon Gholston. Perfect size and burst for WDE.
My fiancé and I are planning a September wedding, still pains me.
Lots of competition for minutes among young players will help this team a lot. Look for Keita, Tate, and Thompson to lead us.
Bob knight is angry, water is also wet. Love me some Bob Knight though. Have an uncle that looks just like him, wears an IU shirt and people try to take pictures with him. He loves it because he gets to be grumpy and people eat it up.
The Reds bullpen is a dumpster fire. Parra and Gregg are gasoline soaked matches. They just make things worse.
I'm going to say Harris because he will play the best defense early on. Plus opening at point guard. Mitchell second because I think Matta can't wait to use his playmaking ability.
Seniors were limited offensively, defensively, and in the leadership department. Thad and assistants could only get this team so far. It takes an internal fire to be mentally tough and will your team to victory. We missed that in a big way this year. Russell had it and I think Tate might have it. Anyone else? Who can lead this team out on the court? Leadership development is needed more than player development. We had the talent to win a lot more games this year. Instead we let teams deliver huge blows in the first 10 of the first half and we let them. Couldn't stop the bleeding enough to make a difference.
"Have yet to rebound" - I see what you did there. That's what I felt like most of yesterday.
Fresh blood will bring enthusiasm with limitless potential, something left squandered with this accomplished yet disappointing senior class.
I'm not ready to say fire Thad just yet. The senior players he has this year are role players. That's what they've been their whole careers. How different would this team look with LaQuinton Ross? Or if Loving doesn't get suspended, come back and contribute nothing? Thad has an immense amount of talent in the pipeline that will be hungry for the 4 opening starting spots next fall. Some players just don't develop at the rate we all want them too and Thad had a group of them that played a lot for 4 years. Are all of them better before they came on campus? I think so. But the future is young, bright and talented and should be was less frustrationg to watch.
How big do you see the 2016 class being?
Tyler Boyd WR from Pitt
I am a titans fan too, and as much as I want to hate the guy I really can't. Same with Luck. I don't even dislike the Colts but the Titans have had some bad juju as of late with however many seasons of playing against Peyton and then Luck falls into the Colts laps (pun intended).
At least they aren't Browns level unlucky.
