Bucks will lose games if Andre Wesson plays more than 10 minutes/game next year.  He's a tweener with a below average shot, should be playing in the MAC.  

Musa will get passed over if he can't figure out how to create for himself.

Ahrens had best 3 pt % on the team, so him and Gaffney should just split time at the 3.  

Comment 06 Mar 2019

8 assists for the entire team.  Jackson and Woods have killed this team all year long and Andre thinks he's Klay Thompson.

Woods had 15/7, pretty good, but 1 assist.  That's your starting PG?

Not just losing to NW but losing by 18.  NCAA or NIT, doesn't matter will lose first game in either.

Comment 15 Feb 2019

Only saw second half, but thought Kaleb looked terrible.  Senseless fouls, not taking control on offense.  He really struggles against guys of similar size or taller.

Can't have 10 turnovers from the PG spot.  Just can't.  Basically gotten to the point where a TO is all I expect from Woods.

Luther and Duane are pretty good driving to the basket and dumping or scoring.  I'd like to see them do more of that and keep Woods on the bench.

Comment 12 Jan 2019

12 points and 7 turnovers is not exactly what you want from the 1 spot.  Kaleb was awful too but with the combo of that zone and him having problems against bigger players, it's no surprise.  There's no way in hell he should only end up with 5 FG attempts.

Look at the 5 spot, 8 points and 5 turnovers in 42 minutes.  Tough sledding with no PG or scoring from the wing.

Comment 08 Jan 2019

Last night's game proved, again, that it really does matter how well you are playing in the last half of the season.  Clemson didn't look great early on and nearly lost a couple close games, but looked dominant at the end.  Bama and ND the exact opposite, and they played like it.

2014 is another example of this and probably some other years too.  I understand you can play your way out of the playoff early in the season, but the committee seems to not really understand that some teams improve greatly over the course of the year and others don't.  The fact that there was even a debate in 2014 between Ohio State and TCU is scary.

Going to 8 would be a great way to pick up these types of teams.

Comment 24 Dec 2018

Not sure I agree with Harrison's assessment especially against Maryland but I will hope that as a senior he can become solid and consistent.  

On the topic of next year's team, even if Jordan and Fuller bolt this team is loaded, but I will have a hard time watching Borland and Werner play 90% of meaningful snaps.  You have to think a change at position coach would not only improve the coaching but also shake up the pecking order.

You know neither Borland nor Werner are leaving early, I can't even imagine Browning never being a full time starter and Mitchell waiting until his senior year to get a shot.

Comment 03 Dec 2018

But ESPN's computer, the FPI, also had us in.  As did Sagarin and something called Resume S&P+, which apparently combines S&P+ with strength of schedule.

Notre Dame being beyond reproach is what irks me more than Oklahoma.  The computers actually liked both GA and Ohio State more than OK and ND.  I'd be fine with OSU-Bama and Clemson-GA, those would be killer games.  

Most deserving does not equal best.  Just go to 8 teams, it's one more weekend.  Kids are already practicing for bowl game.

DiNardo and Griffith ripped both the 4-team process and inconsistent schedules last night as well, as if anybody cares about them.

Comment 02 Dec 2018

Unfortunately for us the factors "who did you beat" and "did you play a good schedule" have been replaced by "who did you lose to."

I don't get the whole "Oklahoma avenged their loss" deal.  Ohio State avenged its loss by pounding UM and beating the team that beat Purdue.  We scored 45 on a team that Notre Dame only scored 31 on and beat by 10 and oh by the way NW's defense is ranked 63, Oklahoma's 108.  ND played its best game against Syracuse, we played our best game against UM.

Ohio State would likely be favored in playoff games against both OK and ND yet we're left out.   We'd be getting the same result if we only lost to Purdue by 3, because now the focus is on the losses and not the wins.  

If you're going to ignore a team's upside, then why not UCF?  If reason were to win out, you would exclude ND by assuming they lose to Clemson in the ACC championship game.

Whatever, Haskins probably won't even play in the Rose.

That Parris Campbell TD run is so money.  I love the peace sign in the end zone.  Like he had to throw the flaps out to slow himself down.

Comment 27 Nov 2018

Texas is better.  Hope they show it Saturday.  3 point loss on the road to OK St and 1 point loss to WVU.  Maybe OK will pull out another close one, but Herman should be able to make Ehlinger look good against OK.  

Keep my fingers crossed for a Narduzzi miracle.  Saturday weather in CLT is rainy and high 40s.  Sounds like good Pitt weather to me.

Comment 24 Nov 2018

This game was over as soon as the MD game ended.  Michigan wanted us to come into this game feeling good about ourselves.  Instead they get a defense that was personally embarrassed and a team that's been disrespected by UM players and the national media.  Don't poke the bear.  Urban as an underdog at home?  Bear's been poked.  Michigan to the playoff?  Bear's been poked.  Higdon guarantees a victory?  C'mon.  Bear's gonna wake up and crash Michigan's circle-jerk picnic.  Statement win and then some.
