At least we are now spared the trauma of looking at the bizarre Easter Egg lavender court at Northwestern. Gawd that was awful.
This exactly. Amir is totally lost in space in the zone. Unless the player he is defending drives right at him, he is hopeless. Nearly too painful to watch.
Hard to beat a quality team when all of your bigs are stiffs. Amir totally "lost in space" in the zone, and on offense, if the ball does go in the post, no one on the roster has the ability to do anything but kick it back out or miss a clumsy, ill-advised shot.
Amir was awake today. Loving, not so much.
OSU needed shooters and Kam and D'Angelo are money. As much as I miss Craft, this team is much more fun to watch.
I do have a fear that if Amir Williams ever has to go to the hospital, they will find that he doesn't have a pulse, and a doc will try to declare him dead.
I don't know about the "pay" claim, but FSU has definitely achieved a level of sketchiness that makes even SEC schools look comparatively wholesome.
Am I the only one who would love to punch Mike Periera in the throat?
I've never seen a big get habitually "lost in space" the way Amir does on defense.
Team looked mentally unprepared in the first half to play a top 10 team in the road. Scott was good on D but nearly helpless on offensive. Bigs gave up way too many dunks, Loving putrid in the first half, but showed up in the second. To the chagrin of Louisville fans (who were obnoxious), DRuss was the best player on the floor at the end. Scott and Slam were disappointing as vetern players.
I was there and agree with most everything you say although I didn't see any evidence that Lee is going to be much help. Poor Scott can still get to the rim, and still can't finish. The young guys looked shell shocked in the first half playing a quality team for the first time. Loving was putrid in the first half, much better in the second. His close outs on three shooters are late and weak, but he played much harder in the second. To the chagrin of UL fans, D.R. was the best player on the floor late in the game.
Anyone who doesn't want to discuss this is merely sticking his head in the proverbial sand. This is going to present a major quandary for Meyer. JT is being talkied about as a Heisman contender and as the best player in the B1G. He will likely open next season as a Heisman front runner, preseason All-American and pre-season pick as B1G POY. And Urbs is going to tell him to hold a clipboard?
Personally, I think it is becoming more likely by the day that Braxton goes the Russell Wilson route and transfers.
Nor will 2 Coke products get you press credentials for the press conference.
Corn states desperately need to keep their own....
Great article. And unfortunately, I too believe that the current OSU administration is capable of facilitating this type of calamity.
Or Russell Wilson....
As you well know, I didn't say that there are no racists in Mississippi. My assertion is that there is no concentration of hatred of black people among Ole Miss fans. There are racists in every state, and they come in all colors.
Mississippi has the highest percentage of black people (38%) of any state, and the state has the largest number of black elected officials. Predictably, there will be some people who resent this. -No different than some people resenting the numbers/influence of Hispanics in California. To imply that white people in Mississippi have some unique level of hatred toward blacks is fallacy, as is the assertion that Ole Miss fans reluctance to give up certain traditions is rooted in hatred of black people.
"Shoutout to all the racists down in Mississippi, who struggle every weekend to balance their love of Ole Miss football with their hatred of black people."
DJ: You might want to visit Mississippi before spewing such inflammatory nonsense. You would see quite a few black people there, but you wouldn't see any more hatred of them than you'd see in Ohio.
Well, there is a common denominator when you examine the question of why it keeps happening: Kerry Coombs is still the position coach for the corners.
