Ledee didn't like the way he was used.  Holtmann recruited him to be a 4, but because of Potter's departure 2 days prior to the start of the season, Ledee had to fill the role of a 5.  I chalk up Ledee's unhappiness as being an unfortunate circumstance (the backup 5 leaving just prior to the season beginning).

When Gaffney committed, he talked about his goal to become a player like Keita Bates Diop.  But KBD didn't become the B1G POY until his 4th year in the program.  You have to think that Holtmann would have thought that Gaffney would have the patience to develop into a KBD-like player by his 3rd year in the program.

It was also my recollection that Meyer was saying there was no separation between the two.  If Haskins was clearly the better QB coming out of the spring, then why didn't Meyer make that clear at the time?  Was Urban trying to deceive Burrow so that he would stay on as the backup QB?

I'll probably be asleep by 11pm, so I guess I'll see the news in the morning.

Losing DJC has the team at 13 schollies.  If Towns comes aboard, it's back up to 14 and we know that someone must leave.  I wonder if Towns has been waiting for someone else to announce they're leaving?!?!

Maryland is pretty good, so when they decide to play hard and hit shots, they can come back from a deficit.  However, they should have not won that game.  Minnesota missed 2 front ends of 1-and-1s (Carr and Kalscheur) that would have put it out of reach.

During the past 8 games, Kaleb is 9 for 27 (33%) from 3 and 27 for 58 (46.6%) from 2.  Those 58 shots from 2 do not include those attempts on which he gets fouled.  Most, if not all, of the shots from 2 are within 5 feet of the bucket.  The article seems to focus on the guards finding their magic to help support Kaleb, but Kaleb needs to be better around the basket.

I could repeat many of the quotes listed above.

When the wife and I watch Wheel of Fortune, if someone buys a "u" and there are two of them, we both yell out, "Yeah, two utes!"

Didn't see the game live last night, but checked the final score.  I was disappointed, frankly, with a 12-point win.

But I DVR'ed the game and watched this morning.  I think they played much better than the score indicated.  They had a 25-point lead with about 7 minutes remaining, and it was still a 23-point lead under 5 minutes.  Under 5 minutes, they lost focus or maybe got tired or tried to coast to the victory.  Combine that with a couple of the Nebraska kids hitting long 3s, and the final score made it look closer than it actually was.

I agree with some other posters that the ball seemed to move better.  At the point, Walker runs the offense better, but when Carton gets the ball, he can more easily drive and finish.  CJ had a couple of TOs that were just inexplicable (over and back 9 seconds into the game, and near the end of the game losing the ball out of bounds with no defensive pressure).

When I lived in Morrill Tower in 1975-76, we only had 3 to a room and 12 in our suite.  I don't know if that was consistent throughout the building.

I actually enjoyed living there.  On a fall Saturday, get up mid-morning, go downstairs for breakfast, and a little later, head over to the stadium for the football game.  Lots of parties in the common room.  I probably should have studied more, but it was what it was.

Game 1 of my "next 6" and what a horrible display of offensive basketball.  Twenty points in the second half against an average defense.  16 TOs (7 by Carton, 4 by Kaleb).  Bad, bad, bad basketball IQ.

This is the first time I've started to question whether Holtmann is the excellent coach most of us thought he was.  This is the most disappointed I've been since Holtmann became HC.

My expectation has now dropped to 2-4, ratings be damned.  Should beat Nebraska at home, and maybe @ Northwestern.
