Wonder what he saw between this year and last year's B1G championship game? I don't know if anyone else saw this, but I noticed that Meyer had a big smirk on his face right before the Wisconsin game started as if he knew they were going to destroy them.
Knowing how Meyer is, don't expect him to name a starter until a day or two before the opening game. Can you imagine the preparation headaches this is going to cause Beamer?
I know history has proven that a multi-QB system typically doesn't work. However, we have three QBs who are all proven to be very good at the position. That being said, what is stopping Meyer from playing all three of them? You might say that this could potentially cause issues between the QBs over who should start and what not. But judging from the character of these guys and how they get along, I don't think this would be a problem.
Honestly, I think it's best that Loving transfers. It's blatantly obvious that this team desperately needs an attitude adjustment, and I feel Loving would primarily hold the newcomers back next year if he continues with the same demeanor that plagued him towards the end of this season. Hate to say it, but I really think the basketball team would be better off without him. Maybe a transfer would be best for him as well - he seems to be a person that might need a new start.
My head was hurting too bad from thinking about who would start between Barrett, Miller, and Jones - so I just gave up and voted for Collier.
So it appears that Lee is pretty much done for the season... Not that it will help us much, but I have a feeling that he would have been a lot better this year if he had been healthy...
AmericaKentucky because damn it, it's bourbon.
Adjusted this for you - Since I'm from KY, it sounds much better when said this way
Anything is possible, look at the two teams that were in the championship last year - Kentucky and UConn. They both were struggling teams throughout the year (especially Kentucky), but both were able to put it together come tournament time. Hopefully this team finds a way, if we can somehow figure out how to make WIDE OPEN shots and free throws, then we may just have a chance. They definitely have all the tools to make a run, but they need to figure out how to use them quick.
Can someone please explain to me why Oklahoma got a 3 seed when they have as many losses as we do?? It makes absolutely no sense. I don't care how tough your schedule is, a ten loss season is NEVER worthy of a 3 seed! What a bunch of BS.
I am guilty of being one of the people that have criticized Matta in the past, but it's articles like this that make me reflect and really appreciate how fortunate we are to have a coach like him.
Also, I've always known that Thad has had back problems, but does anyone know what this issue stems from?
Whiplash should have won best picture. Best movie I've seen in a very long time.
Say what you will, but remember that Daequan was a high pick in the NBA draft after his only year as a Buckeye AND he was averaging almost a double-double half-way through the season. I know they are different players, but the drop in FG % is the main comparison I am trying to make. The good thing for Daequan was that he had some of the greatest players ever to step on the court at Ohio State that year, and the team didn't have to rely on his consistency to win games. In other words, when Daequan was missing shots, that team could afford him to stop shooting and still win games towards the end of the year. That unfortunately is not the case with Russ, and a lot of times this forces him to take a lot of shots, even when he's not making them.
I hope this doesn't hold true, but Russ is starting to remind me a little bit of Daequan Cook. If any of you recall, Cook started out the first half of the season on fire, then pretty much became a non-factor towards the end of the season. Obviously we had a much better team that year to pick up his slack, but I hope this slump doesn't continue. I also realize that Russ is a different animal than Cook, but it's hard to ignore the fact that his recent sharp drop in FG % has been hauntingly similar.
Nothing better than bringing back the good ole days. Don't hate, lol.
Since when did whiles become mean?
Nothing to see here... Stan has decided to do what's best for him and Weber will too.
If Weber decides to leave then so be it, I'm pretty sure we'll be alright without him. However if I were in his shoes, I would have a really hard time leaving a coach with an excellent track record that is fresh off a national championship.
YEAH BITCH!!! POSTERS!!
The similarities between him and Joey (looks and play-style) are almost creepy.
Welp, he's gone... When is Gene Smith going to learn to pay our coaches what they deserve?
Had to go with the 2002 team because of who they beat in the championship. That Miami team was filled with ungodly NFL talent, and the fact that they came away victorious was really an unbelievable feat. Also, not only did they win that game, we pretty much dominated Miami and the line of scrimmage (defensive line) for almost the entire game.
I really believe our defense was on a different level that year than this year, and defense almost always wins championships.
I think this poor play is all boiling down to coaching. Take Lee for example. The guy averaged almost a double double when he played at Temple. While Temple was not in the best conference, they were still playing really good teams (Louisville and UConn). Now Lee looks like he hasn't played a game of college basketball in his life whenever he comes onto the court! I hate to say it, but it might be getting close to making a coaching change if things don't improve over the next couple of years.
I'm sure they'd like to play us at full strength as well. #ThirdString
All I see is a black box above Josie's name on the Twitter reference in the article? Can anyone tell me why?
