Agree with Thrill on Marrotti and the other coaches for that matter. We are not quite there yet. Didn't know I was a chili junky! Until we see the freshmen play and given the senior classes past three years of slow improvement number 20 is about right for Thad's crew until they prove themselves.
Wait a minute guys-- Hoke is the Bucks secret weapon to keep the W's coming and UM in the toilet. They used to have a secret weapon coach here too.
That's the problem- several good players looking at Thad's program but by my count- providing no one leaves early or gets hurt and redshirts- we have only two spots for this impressive list of kids.
Thanks Tennbuckeye! I am pretty well hacked off when I can't watch the basket bucks play. It's my one vice.
I would say we did watch about every game on some network last year except for the exhibition. Maybe one or two games were not on. I don't care who they play I want to watch them. Hope they get picked up somewhere. One hundred thousand watched Kent State take it hard the other day- why not OSU basketball.
Nice to hear that about Tate from someone who has watched him play a lot. Thad just might have three freshmen getting a lot of court time this year. In fact I hope that is true.
Good move grabbing on to her and getting a pic of it. A little higher would have been better yet. However, bad move putting it out there for all to see. Celtics worst?? C'mon. Besides they drafted him. Look at the banners in their rafters.
And it's not the players fault.
Don't mean to be negative but some games I wouldn't know we had a tight end.
Mitchell and Jaylen Brown are still possibilities. If not them bank the scolly for next class. Big classes lead to down years when they all leave at once. Thad will be fine.
Agreed that Hoke is not developing players---- Hope that is not the problem on another football team that I follow with a passion. Just wondering out loud. Too early to do that right?
Six of Va Tech players in the front seven on D were new starters. Four of five of our O-line are new. I guess their backups from last year are better than ours .
The thing I hate to admit is people like Mark " a-hole" May are right on about the conference. It's needs to get better no doubt. Can't be mad at the media for making it an issue.
Not just the O-line blocking that was poor-- check out some of the poor blocking and missed assignments from the tight ends and receivers on those running plays we ran that got blown up.
Not surprising Bragg goes elsewhere and it's fair for him to decide he does not fit in here. Not thinking he will be at the school of his choice for long anyway as I think he has NBA on his mind already. This may be a little unfair as I have only saw him play three times but he didn't look like a top ten recruit when I saw him. Looked a little uninterested in playing hard each time down the court. Move to next recruit in line Thad.
What tech school do these AD's and school presidents attend that they learn the "skill" to continue to try and tell us it's not about the money?
Welcome Austin: we look forward to you becoming a "Threebler". Go get Mickey back in the fold or Esa and or Bragg.
Good We have the badgers at home. Not a bad schedule at all to be there for the league championship in March.
UConn!!! And just two days ago many were griping about our non conference schedule. I assume this game is not a part of the Dave Gavitt basketball classic that the B1G was getting involved in????
As much as I would like to see a better non conference schedule it isn't going to happen as long as there is this thing called a budget that Gene Smith needs to make work each year. You cannot have big names for a bunch of non conference games as they require a return trip to there place next year and then there is not enough home games to cash flow the budget. Not sure why this is a big discussion every year.
I see Ryan put Sammy Watkins out of the game last night with a hit. We needed that one in January.
Better get them out in deeper water or they're knees and elbows will rub the coral!!!! Ha ha
Sounds like it might be hard to keep KBD out of starting lineup. Nice numbers for Tate yesterday- as he's been re-habing that shoulder. 17 turnovers not good but given the competition I imagine the game turned into "barn ball". I am ready for the season to start but Urban hasn't even ran his team out there yet! Keep the roundball info coming- can't get enough.
Good for him. I think he has been thinking about this day almost since got to OSU and maybe before. Maybe that's why he looked disinterested at times. He got his pro contract and Thad got an open roster spot to fill with another player and we move on. Everyone should be happier.
He's right behind Thad- barely see him.
