We haven't offered a single 7 footer in this class so not sure how this would be possible. King is an elite talent. He's a must get. We will find a way to get three kids in this class. Im assuming its King, Funderburke and Potter which is ideal.
Weezer was my first concert as well.
Valid arguments I just don't see the value in playing 10 cupcake teams to start every season? You really think the team grows from padding their stats and just being physically more talented than the other teams? Lot of sleepwalking going on in November and December.
Sidenote UNC played Butler and Davidson as well as Florida who obviously did not make the tourney. They went for it all this year. Props to them.
Also very fucking true. Specifically saw one group pour beer on a girls head during the bucks game bc she interupted their "Flyers chant" when Zona went on their second half run to beat us. I love passionate fan bases. This was less passionate, more lets act like douchenozzles because we beat OSU last year and want to make sure people remember us.
North Carolina played 8 non-conference tournament bound opponents
Kentucky played 7
Wisconsin played 6
VCU played 6
UCLA played 5
Gonzaga played 5
NC State played 5
Utah played 4
Ohio State played 2
Last year MSU played Kentucky, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Texas and Georgetown out of conference.
Don't be so cavalier. This is an issue.
Fact of the matter is this years senior class was "stunted" by Aaron Crafts outstanding leadership. Their first three years they were role players who chipped in where they could and looked to Craft when things got tough. This couldnt be more obvious when this season rolled around and DRuss and Tate were the only leaders on the floor. This off-season the team missed Crafts ever present leadership. Hopefully Tate can help fill that void this summer.
So you'd rather skate by on an over-inflated, bloated win total and get knocked out first weekend? Tough early non-con games are important. Playing the same Big Ten teams certainly toughens a team up, but it doesn't expose young players to different playing styles across the country. Wisconsin, Iowa, Purdue, MSU etc. all play similar styles of basketball. A team needs to see firsthand other styles of play to arm themselves for the tournament.
Dayton inbreds were trolling around Columbus all week. Lets just say after a fairly large sample size this weekend, I will never root for them again...
Can't knock Thad too much. One area where a change is definitely needed is Non-Conference scheduling. The head coach in college basketball has MUCH more influence in scheduling compared to football coaches. Just look at Izzo. Constantly challenges his team early to show them where they realistically stand against elite competition. Come March MSU is always a serious threat regardless of talent. Beating NCAT&T by 30 every Tuesday and Friday for the first two months of the season doesn't help anyone.
Off course Hardy would fit right in with the rest of the Bengal jailbirds. Perfect Fit
From L - R
Raekwon, Conner, Booker, Worley, Fada, Burger, Perry, Grant, Williams, walk-on, Lee. Missing is Berger
DJ, I lived at 1824 Summit my senior year of college (2013). Some older dudes walked in one day when we were all day drinking and started spouting off about some dude getting stabbed in our kitchen a few years back. Ring any bells?
Yes and Yes
Damn I remember watching those and being super jealous. Thats awesome man.
Tiger gets a lot of heat, and deservedly so, but from people who have met him/other tour players he is quite a nice guy. Phil on the other hand is a turd.
I pissed next to Mike Golic at the Cincy game this fall. He was wearing a tshirt approximately three sizes too small.
Their Bourbon Barrel Blackout Stout was just tapped at an event a month or so ago. Awesome. Off topic I recently was able to get my hands on some Three Floyds Zombie Dust. Good stuff.
Willie Mobley went there I believe.
4th fastest 40 and 2nd most reps for corners. Impressive so far
Steve would be a first round pick in Beer Olympics
Pizza is good.
Ayyye I see now. Not sure what that has to do with Price moving to DT however.
Who in their right mind is sleeping on Zeke after that finish the the season?
WUT? Elflein and Price started all season...
