In the picture with the "bullet chairs" there are two mannequins with what appear to be new jersey styles.  Are these the new pro combat uniforms?

I respectfully disagree with your contention that Williams and Ravenel are the same.  Ever since that "pep talk" at NW, Ravenel has shown the intensity that had been lacking to complete his game.  Williams still looks lost against the upper tier centers of the league.  He lacks the killer instinct that Ravenel brings.  IMHO.

You are right.  Matta really raised the bar so that we all expect greatness from his teams.  

Comment 25 Feb 2013

Very good point.  As is often noted, when the PG is playing like his life depended on it then the team will respond, and I think that that is what we saw yesterday.  Craft was a beast who fired up other player like Ravenel et al.

You gotta love catching any team sleeping, but especially one with a top-notch coach like Izzo.  THERE WILL BE BLOOD

Comment 12 Feb 2013

Coach Meyer, during his OHSFCA speech harped on the fact that 2/3 college athletes will not make the cut but that a coaching staff that truly cares for their athletes will do their damnedest to give them a fighting chance.  Interestingly, his point was that the teams that win do so because the players trust that their coaches truly care about them.  When things like this happen I wonder if some teams are worried about trophies and not the wellbeing of their players.

Quite so.  One of the very few criticisms that could be lobbied against Matta is that his bench does not contribute a whole lot in March.  I have not heard that argument this year because of the ligitamate scoring threats sitting on the bench.  It would seem to me that this team has greater depth than in recent memory.  Comments?

It will be interesting how many minutes Q will get off the bench once the meat of the schedule hits.  He looks a little lazy on D against NKU, but then again, it was NKU..he also had zero assists in that game which seems to point to a lack offensive maturity-know when to dish the rock, son!
