Whoa! Straddling the line of politics. “Progressives” won’t stand for this

It's a play-on-words. And a good one. Someone certainly is "stuck up."

I actually thought it was super clever. I also know what a pun is, I’m married to a school teacher it’s cool I totally get it. It’s not a new concept to me.One time I mentioned blaming the Russians for OSU not making playoffs. I got comments delegated. I appreciated the title. I just thought it might cause a uproar. For what it’s worth I’m a huge fan of who spoke those words and am far from stuck up. Cool pun yourself though.in fact have an upvote from me

Katz has w. as one of the top 15 players in the nation. That means he's 1st round nba, and 1st team big ten. One is tough, the other isn't happening. He's top 15 in value to his team though, for sure.

It recalls Terence Dials - Big Ten player of the year who went untreated. Value and accomplishment in college doesn't necessarily translate to the NBA.

Undrafted. Spell check (along with bad typing) strikes again. I've left THAT untreated for too long.

I don;t think katz takes nba potential into consideration, he's just ranking the players that he think will have the most impact in college next year.  His top 3 are seniors and its likely none get drafted in the first round.

Great analysis! Kaleb needs to see this!..but I’m sure Coach And staff understand how important Kaleb is just by observation and have been working with on it since the end of the seasons.

Great analysis

Sure, but the charts are difficult to read, especially the scarlet & gray ones. Fonts way too small—and one can wrap text to the next line with bigger ones.

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

KW will be key to the Bucks success this coming year and hopefully next.  If he diligently pursues his S&C program it should help him on both sides of the ball including fouling less... not to mention his NBA dreams.

Who knew?  Good stuff. Hope someone from Eleven Warriors asks Coach Holtmann if any of these analytics actually influence his decisions about playing time. I get it that Ahrens needs to improve his D, but his O is awfully good! (As an example)

Ahrens is fine on D. He’s actually one of the best rebounders on the team. His game is a net positive almost any way you track it. “He’s bad on D” is just a blanket statement that gets tossed around to justify why someone isn’t getting much time.

Not what many of us observed during his Frosh season, he was getting burnt on a regular basis.

I think we ALL knew that the offense was radically different with/without KW last season, and that he was the catalyst to team success. These stats quantify the obvious, which is fine. I'm sure the NBA panel explained that his foul issues and lack of conditioning would kill his chances of success at the next level, so we shall see how he responds. Does he "man up" and become the force that carry's the Bucks, or does he coast and leave all that talent dragging behind. We shall see, eh????
