Even back then the Bucks were great and a win over them was significant.
Actually in '83 they beat Penn state. Penn State beat ND and Alabama that year.
Well since UC has already beaten us twice, a game with us must be insignificant.
They do have a good history. Some guy named Urban Meyer captained their team in '85. Shelley Meyer also went there. urban's sister works for UC. I don't think that they are nobodies, especially around the WHAC & the shoe.
I doubt if Urban wants to put them in their place. A good win perhaps, but Urban was on their sideline the year he was out of coaching.
It would be a great rivalry. I would also like to see the bb teams play.
Keep the money in the state.
Except that Urban is an alum of UC and he was the captain of their football team.
Let's not mouth off too much about UC as the last meeting it came down to the last play in the end zone. It would have cost us the NC that year.
At least 14 as I hear that school up North is sacrificing 13 skunks.
My work is called off due to ice. Hooray. I get to look at all my new fishing lures, play with my pup, get romantic with the wife and follow the bucks.
All this, and ttun does still suck too.
Yes you did have to sign up, but there is no draft. I lived during the draft. My lottery number was 322, but I was already in the Marines. I was in the marines back then and I was still too young to drink for 6 months. It didn't kill me, but some nasty people tried once I was 18.
I don't buy the selective service excuse. You can't be drafted till you are 18 and in Ohio, you used to be able to buy beer at 18. They may have changed the law since I have not lived in the wonderful state in years, but I will retire in buckeye land.
Once a Buckeye always a Buckeye.
I just wish these guys knew what they are throwing away (free scholarship). I can't really talk because I didn't realize how great going to college would be till I got in the marines. These guys are losing such a wonderful experience playing for the Bucks. The education, playing for Urban and the great atmosphere at the games would be wonderful to experience. Some guys prefer pissing it against a tree though.
Go Bucks - Bring on those schools from up North.
No excuses. They beat UM in the big house.
he needs to do it regularly versus the stronger big 10 inside players.
I think you will see Sam continue to dunk as the inside players are not as strong, or as big as the big 10 players. Evan is my favorite player cause in tuff game, when he goes in, the game changes. he sets the inside screens an back screens for Craft to drive. he is the least appreciated Buckeye.
I thought vinnie really improved. The first defensive set he boxed out underneath and the third set he got the rebound. He is coming on.
When he ask about their finacial package, they said his degree was the package.
Sarah you wrote " It was Harvard's first win ever in the tournament, so that school finally has something to be proud of". I suspect that you mean in sports. They do have a good library and their law school is ranked #1. I am just a proud father of a son who got accepted at their law school.
Since sunshine is hot, the kicker was thirsty.
I am all for experience, but he is not quick/instinctive/experienced enough to play defense on the perimeter. This allows his man to drive for an easy layup or our bigs in trying to play help defense pick up too many fouls. I don't know if he brings fear to the opponents on the offensive side either as nobody has yet to defend him with their real starters . We will see if he starts averaging double figures against IU, MSU, tsun etc.
I realize he needs pt to get better, but the bucks need victories this season. I say let him work real hard in practice ( I am sure he does) and over the summer learn to read the floor on the defensive side as well as the offensive side. He isn't reading the first step move when he is defending very well. His only pass in the first half against the gophers was a real soft, high one that was almost stolen.
I am really pulling for him to be the outside shooter which we need, but as long as we are in the race for a good finish, his playing might sacrifice more than it gains for the bucks. He really only looked good after the Minnesota game was a laugher. I know we are desperate for solutions as well and hope remains eternal, but he needs a lot of learning.
This is off topic, but how does one upvote or downvote. I also don't think Della Valle hustles all the time. Twice he was under the basket on a miss and neither time did he attempt to boxout, jump or fight for position. Guards have to rebound on a team whose starting center won't. Della Valle watched both times. The bucks needed every rebound they could get. Shooting is far from what the complete game of basketball is about. Sure he is a frosh, but a frosh can put a body on someone. Sure he may have ran in from outside, but if you do that you have to do more than watch.
I want someone starting with the heart to go get a rebound especially defensive. It is horrible to work hard on d for 30 seconds, cause a bad shot and then have to play d again because nobody has the guts to bang.
The team is soft and lacks fundamentals.
Usually by their second season, a McDonald's all-american is starring or at least starting. I think Scott has the potential, but he is not being developed. Thompson wants the highlight reel and he doesn't want to get in, box out and get the rebound. I believe there is more than offense in basketball. How many screens does thompson set? I don't blame the players. Most young players want to jack up 3's or jam one down. It is fundamental basketball that is missing. I have said that for years. Why don't these coaches teach them anymore. What gets recruits is the ability to come in and score, score, score. It takes a great coach to mold them into a team on both sides of the ball. It takes a great coach to teach and expect fundamentals. Perhaps with the new contract, Thad can feel secure and require that of his players. I hope he can also teach them how to break a press without panicing. Inbounding is also a lost art.
There is little discipline in the half court game and in boxing out. That has to be taught and required. It takes a certain mindset in a kid to fit into that type of program.
Sure UK won with independent stars, but even with the top recruits can they do it every year.
Look at what Butler is doing by being a team and before that Princeton. Being a team is more than a handslap after a missed freethrow.
If Thad ever leaves, the bucks need an alum to sit on the selection committee. That would be Bobby Knight.
Not only has the 3 hurt basketball, but the one and done recruiting has as well.
Williams is afraid to bang. Plain and simple. Bob Huggins used to have the football team put pads on and beat on the rebounders and lane drivers. Imagine John Simon in there with them. He used to have a lid on the basket so every shot in practice is a rebound.
Rebounding is a skill. You have to know weakside and strongside. One just can't depend on height. We see that in the buck's game.
As I wrote after the MSU loss, these guys refuse to box out. I am glad that Jimmy Jackson called them on it. This team is weak and lack basic fundamentals. They go straight up for a rebound instead of putting a body on someone and last night it was sickening. Iowa had less gifted athletic bigs, but were way better coached in fundamentals. I, for one, am not happy with Matta's raise. The team often plays out of control. Last night the spacing was horrible and once again, way too mant to's.
Matta said the team was tired from working too hard. I saw little, if any, hard work under the boards in a game where it counts. What is wrong with the management here. You can't always have 5 star players, sometimes you have get the most out of 3 stars. Scott, the son of a good NBA player, was a McDonald's all-american. He is in his second year. While there has been some improvement, it is not what I expected from him. Same for Ross.
You might win a few at home (the UM game was great), but this is the BIG and if you hope to win on the road, or later in the season, you better get tuff. This team is weak.
Can someone teach anyone to box out. Can Thad get someone who doesn't want the highlite ESPN blocking a shot section and actually have the heart to rebound?
Charles Barkley said that any knucklehead can shoot, but it takes a basketball player to rebound.
Perhaps someone should teach these "studs" how to box out. They seldom do and they just jump for the rebound. They trust their athletic ability and size which worked in HS, but not in college. MSU was really no better. Thad should teach fundamentals. I am shocked that Jent mostly teaches shooting and not how to rebound. This team would have won yesterday if they knew how to rebound. There is also way too much standing around on offense and too many wild fast breaks instead of slowing down f and setting up better shots. Too many turnovers off of these wild breaks.
They look undisciplined out there and frankly uncoached.
Well I am not sure why one would insult Cincinnati. First of all, only 1 recruit reported on Tuberville while everyone else was silent. Second of all, doesn't Urban Meyer's sister live in Cincy and works for UC. UC couldn't be all that bad since the aboved named Urban was the captain of the Bearcats football team and an alum.
