No it isnt. I am not a NIT hater but it is always better to make the NCAA Tourney.
To be honest, I would hate to lose Giddens for a game because of something like this but it is nice to see some emotion on the floor.
I know we are just coming up to tournament season but I just cant help but look forward to next year. If Matta can hold these guys together we should be a really solid team. Improved PG play will help guys like KBD and Kam Williams become more consistent on offense and another year of playing together will help them play as a team on D.
For all the grief Loving gets from media types... He really did keep us in the game during the first half.
stupidest recent movie... Noah
Agreed. I look forward to games called by Spielman.
I would like to see Braxton be an actual wide receiver today. Forget about the wildcat.
I love having the trio of Kam WIlliams, AJ Harris, and Dan Giddens on the floor. It may not be our best line up but it is exciting.
That is great to hear. I still think this team can be a spoiler if the fan base gets behind them.
Matta has had some great late season performances but if they go .500 in conference play then they will be a 13-14 loss team. I don't see them getting the benefit of the doubt in that case.
Not that I disagree but it is worth pointing out that for the most part they are all highly rated recruits. I have to wonder if Grandstaff doesnt like Matta's focus on defense (Yes, I have read all the comments about his kid).
At times Matta has been really sarcastic and funny in interviews. This year he seems to be much more subdued.
So, whats the deal with no one showing up to watch the games anymore. I was a season ticket holder until I left Columbus six years ago. The fan support for the basketball team was weak back then and it looks like it has gotten worse.
There are two different safeties with different responsibilities. Powell before bell is feasible depending on the needs of the team drafting.
Yeah, I find it hard to be unhappy about a top 10 finish and an elite bowl game.
Hah thanks for the laugh
I didn't see ND play much this year. Eager to see the 11w coverage for this game.
Beating ND never gets old. Sure hope they don't make me eat those words :)
I plan to watch the CFP. We have a newborn so we aren't going out for NYE anyway. I am going to pull for MSU and Clemson because I like those teams. I admire the MSU athletic department and Coach Dan's program in particular and I have a close friend who has a series of degrees from Clemson. All the rest is politics and I don't really want that kind of nonsense to cloud how I view sports.
agreed. I get that the staff is trying to keep the signal to noise ratio high but that original Connor Cook thread had gotten out of hand. I have no problem whatsoever with this getting a new thread.
Sorry but I am backing MSU. I dont interact with their fans down here in Texas so I cant speak to that. I am an admirer of coach Dan and the program he has built. I generally pull for them unless they are playing the good guys.
It going to take me a while to hand out all the upvotes people deserve for their responses in the comment thread.
Ugh, I have to disagree. I would rather have fake urban than the superfans. Fake Urban doesn't hog the camera on game day. The Mute button doesnt work on Buck I Guy.
I dont think you are remembering what happened clearly. Kirk was wrong in this case. This whole thing started when Kirk criticized Pryor for showing frustration on the field after Devir Posey dropped an easy catch. (On the next play, TP made an amazing run to convert a 4th and 10.) He pretty clearly still had his head in the right place Kirk questioned his leadership and Pryor responded. I am not a huge Pryor fan but I don't blame him for his spat with Herbie. Captain Kirk should have known better than to get involved in a media spat with a player and to his credit Kirk eventually took the high road and ended it.
Its not so much that I think that Pryor is awesome. Its just that I think there are two sides to this story.
