Like BJ Mullins, he doesn't love the game and will struggle mightily to reach his potential.
Owens Billy-Jacked Der Fuehrer!
"Who are those guys"?
Stan is paraphrasing Tress' "pair and a spare" rb philosophy: "I’m always going to operate under the notion I need at least three [guys],” Drayton said. “I need at least three, and there’s five of them."
Hard as it is to admit, Coach B has built a really good program for TTUN. Their offense is so good, reliance on tOSU-style D is not required. The O allows them to stay out of foul trouble.
Good luck to Q and ADV. ADV will be solid for the Parmesano Reggianos!
Clark Gable gets the nod over Dino.
Who is the man impersonating Dean in the posted pic?
Great opportunity for the young Bucks!
i highly recommend both of Luttrell's books, "Lone Survivor" and "Service".
We should thank our Creator daily for men & women who prepare and sacrifice to defend the USA.
If only the Moo Moo Car Wash offered this type of detailing!
By the way, is that a Plymouth she is wearing?
Disappointing, but not necessarily a surprise. Even so, this has put a damper on (my) enthusiasm for the 2014 tournament.
One must appreciate what Thad has accomplished whilst at tOSU: a run, at worst, to the Sweet 16 every year!
You, Sir, are correct. In that situation, if you get a good opportunity, the shot must be taken.
There is a certain eloquence in "truth-speak" lost on the current occupiers of Washington, DC. Putin would be soiling himself if he had to answer to Uncle Billy!
If we play great D v the Flyers, bad offense will not matter. However, that formula against 'Cuse will likely not yield a Sweet 16 trip for the good guys.
You knocked it out of the park with the Branch Rickey comments!
It is difficult to think the winner could/should come from Sports or The Arts. How does Paul Tibbets receive a 16? Tecumseh is a very solid 4.
This will be great fun! The next contest should be comprised of the top 64 11W commenters. BuckFly would be a top 4 seed.
The Little General, from down the road in Somerset, casts a vote for Uncle Billy.
I am disappointed, but not surprised.
Although he kept the Bucks in the game, I wish Thad had kept Q on the bench for the remainder of the game.
Only Q and Loving have sound shooting mechanics. (Loving is not quite ready for prime time.)
The Schott is a beautiful facility. It is uncertain whether it will ever achieve the ambiance of SJA. It can if the students and other seat holders exhibit the same passion accorded tOSU football.
Me thinks the ascension of the hoops program is more a function of Thad Matta. (I acknowledge the recruiting assist provided by the newer facilities.)
Thanks for the Sylvester video! Gus is, flat-out, the best at calling basketball.
TTUN is a good team. They always have, at least, 3 pretty good ball handlers on the floor who can create/get to the hoop. They might be running away from the pack if their Big had not been lost for the season. That said, it would be pleasing if they were to win 0 games the remainder of this year.
Kirk H agrees with your assessment: Mike Thomas IS the next Bam Childress.
As the Lantern recently completed their investigations of Richard Nixon and the Vietnam War, the sins of the athletic dept move into the spotlight.
Great video and part of The Schott pre-game. I never grow tired of the early 60's Bucks and Gus Johnson calling the Ron Lewis 3.
An absolutely tremendous idea. I give the suggestion 2 thumbs up and nominate BuckFly as a contributing columnist for 11W.
Like so many other football factory schools, NW is challenged in hoops.
This could be an opportunity for Loving to contribute for a second consecutive game.
However, for most of the remainder of the season, Loving is still learning, needs more strength and will not be a consistent contributor. Our 7-footer needs to provide more on offense than a 26-feet from the basket screen.
What you see is what you get with this team: defense will keep them in all games; offense could lose all games.
Did this take place at the 'Shoe or in late October on Court Street? If memory serves correct, this was in Cols and, that day, their mascot led the Cats in tackles.
The more important issue facing the spirit team: When can we update/completely change the mascot outfit?
I forget to name all of the MAD 5: Crean, McCaffrey, Boeheim, Huggins & Alford.
What was said by Tress about Ginn, Jr? "If you're even, he's leavin'."
Iowa at IU: which coach is more miserable? Regardless of the result, expect the fly-bye, post-game handshake.
TTUN looks like an NBA squad. One guy dribbling, for the bulk of the shot clock, and the other 4 watching.
