It bother me to hear that a first round pick runs questionable routes and is a bit of a project. Big 12 in a nutshell. I would have much preferred Dotson or even Will Fuller. I think they go defense with their 2nd pick but would love to have Mike Thomas.
There seems to be consensus on what needs to happen. But how does it happen? What does the off-season look like for these guys? I'd genuinely like to know.
I assume they are given a list of areas to develop in. And I also hear a lot of Thad's former players come back during the summers and workout together. If that's the case it would be great if these older guys could challenge and mentor these young guys, and not just show up to a gym and play some games together.
On another note, does Scoonie Penn have any interest in joining the staff? We need a different type of fire and intangible leadership within the staff and I think he'd bring it.
Even though I picked them to win it all, I really hate looking at that picture of Sparty on my favorite site.
Great win. Hope KBD feels better soon and we kick UF in the gator bits.
Glad he's speaking up. I'd heard a similar story from a reporter with good access to the program and it's a damn shame that class didn't have any real leaders.
Let it be a lesson to our current players: You want to be great, put in great effort.
Average golfers will save the most strokes by practicing chip shots. I do this around my yard. Set up a small target, like a bucket, at 10 to 20 yards. It's the best way to develop feel.
The key is you've got to practice good technique. So definitely video yourself. Is your body moving? Is your head stationary? Are you breaking your wrists or jabbing at the ball?
Review it with someone that knows how to play (like a good teaching pro). Once you have a good feel for the basic chip, then move to uphill and downhill lies and learn to adjust to the situation. If you're confident in your short game, you will make better swings from 100 yards out because you will know that you can recover.
Wow. Sometimes kids rely on their size, but Mr. Wilson here has good feet and locate-the-ball instincts.
Our bracket contains about as stiff of a test as you can hit in the NIT so I hope they are ready to play.
Agree. Hope he can block like Zeke.
Dust off the ol' Triangle-and-two
]Are the guys willing to put in the work? I'm talking about type of dedication that transformed Evan Turner's game. If so, this group has the chance to become legends and win it all—possibly next year, definitely the year after.
Buckeye players running late night drills might explain the jet noise you are describing.
Screw the rankings, trust the guys who spotted Darron Lee
I read a post that Brax was hand-timed by several teams at 4.38. Something about the nfl's timer being off.
The Iowa team we saw yesterday was not too impressive. They're not very athletic and really struggled to move the ball when Gesell was on the bench.
How exactly did they beat Michigan State twice? Hope Thad and the coaches pull up that game film. Maybe we can learn something to take into E Lansing.
Props to Evan on a fantastic career. And to Danny Ainge for attending the event with ET and Sully.
Fyi, youtube removed the sound from parts of the show due to copyright. Sorry, I don't know how to delete my post.
If you enjoy their music, this BBC special gives a great look into the genius of their songwriting:
Lyndsey is ri-quick-ulous.
Went to the game. Props to Marc Loving for positive energy and a more upbeat demeanor tonight. Not sure if they showed it on camera, but on a couple occasions he was clapping his hands and being motivational with teammates.
KBD was on the attack in 2nd half, too.
A lot of those NW 3s were contested with 1 or 2 seconds on the shot clock. You knew they couldn't shoot like that all game.
Keep fighting Buckeyes.
Agree with the lineup, Tim. I think KBD and Loving need to rotate for one another in 5-7 minute spurts. Having them on the floor together is not working. In more limited spurts, I think they would be able to give better all-out effort to get the most of their combined talents.
Love Pridgeon's potential, but he hasn't had to grind against D1 talent day in and day out. Great opportunity for all these young guys to show what they are made of right now.
Bag men be like, "You want that double bagged?"
