I wouldn't hold it against him at all if he came out. This is probably his best chance to get picked decently high. Most of the guys up against him in the next draft class just don't have the strengths where Barrett is questioned(arm strength, size, accuracy on deep throws). Watson will definitely be a high 1st round pick but I could see Barrett rising above several of the other guys listed above him.
I've noticed that..alot of their vocal fans seem to have just jumped shipped on their team for that title run.
Perhaps but Thompson was being physical pushing him with his arm the entire way down. They went for a no call but I expect we'll see that corrected to a loose ball foul when the NBA releases its review.
That is why I hate Curry. Acts so humble but beneath that veneer you see he is smug as hell.
So you've got almost certainly 4 other players on the court who shoot worse on FTs than Curry and your choice is to hack him? Lol thank god you're not drawing up strategies for Lue.
He is being an ass over a semantic difference. By last time he means last time they made the final four previous to this year(or in other words not counting this season).
Pics or it didn't happen
But seriously that is pretty awesome if true. It seems like Thad is targeting Ohio more regularly now and I wouldn't be surprised if he got an offer soon considering MSU gave him one.
We don't have to win the tournament IMO, but we almost certainly will have to beat MSU to get in. Looks like a tall task.....which is unfortunate because without some early season losses we may have been much closer to a spot in the tournament.
"Just like football" Yeah I agree, you'll look good in the regular season then choke when you face elite talent.
Damn you forced me to log in to my account....can't let a great Archer reference like this go by without an upvote!
With OSU I'm glad I have a football team that I can always look forward to(especially under Urban) and get excited about how the team will come together by the time the season starts. Meanwhile the Browns are on to another cycle of drafting a questionable QB in to the worst situation a QB can get for a new coach that will likely get very limited talent to work with.
Great game for Lyle. He still gets beat too easy sometimes on dribble-drive penetration but he has really come together as a PG on the offensive end. I love the way Kam Williams is playing. He really seems to have a different level of confidence in his shooting stroke, the guy is a sniper from the 3pt line right now.
He definitely needs to polish his game overall with things like finishing at the basket, shooting, and boxing out. As a passer though he has amazing vision and I see the 1 or 2 passes put on the feet as a result of inexperience playing with this team as well as his aggressiveness on passes. A lot of great passers initially have a high TO rate because teammates find it hard to anticipate their passes. Keep in mind he only played 9 minutes but had about 5 or 6 assist opportunities, his teammates just happened to shoot poorly on them.
I think this is the 1st time he has gotten a chance to play with the ball as the secondary ball handler on the court and you can see that is where he shines. He has also been a surprisingly solid defender aside from the touch fouls that have been called on him. Off-ball however, he still has a long way to go.
A lot of people see Weber pushing Dunn down on the depth chart but I'd love for Dunn to at least see a regular role in the rotation. I think he has a nice balance of speed and power that could make him very successful in Urban's offense.
He used to run a wide rotation at Florida, I think the recent disparity comes from the dominance of Elliot and Hyde. Maybe he will go back to that with the wide variety of playmakers we have and no clear no.1 option.
There are tweener guys that have been really successful with the small ball development in the NBA like Draymond Green(puke), Jae Crowder(double puke), and Demarre Carrol. I just don't think Tate even has their level of size and he probably isn't as athletic as Crowder or Carrol.
Although I think Austin didn't make the best decision(though he is young and influenced by his dad), I wouldn't blame the start on him. The whole team played with a completely different type of energy and intensity on defense. That was a team improvement and I don't think you can credit that to one player or one departure.
Kentucky may not be up to the level of some of their recent squads right now but they are still an extremely talented team with multiple 1st round picks on their roster and I'm pretty certain they'll make a deep run when the postseason comes. Huge win that greatly improves tOSU's chances at making it to the NCAA tournament this season with solid conference play.
Can you recommend me to your dealer?
Yeah I really wish the NCAA would do their job. No real coverage for it unlike the Diallo situation either. I really think with our struggles for facilitation and quality ballhandling we could really stand to benefit from Mitchell's play.
The mistakes like turnovers, fts, bad rotation on defense on the last seconds of a possession, etc. are very frustrating. However the talent is definitely there and all these mistakes should be fixed with experience. Might be a long year even as they progress, but the potential of guys like Giddens, Grandstaff, and Lyle give hope for the future. Hope we get to see Mitchell too, think our record might be different with him handling the ball.
They could really use a ball handler as brilliant at passing as Mitchell, hopefully NCAA gets their shit done(not going to be timely knowing them) and his credits will be cleared up.
I'm sure Matta does do so, I know he was incensed when it happened.
PSU is actually playing well and moving the ball. The talent is there, they just make too many mistakes in crucial areas like the red zone. Maybe they can catch a break like MSU did with that BS fumble return and get back in to the game.
Yeah I thought that was an obvious incomplete pass...people can shit on PSU all they want but the reality is they are actually playing pretty well against MSU. Just making costly mistakes. Should be 13-10.
