I'd guess he's thinking of someone else. Dials averaged fewer turnovers per game then Oden and Sullinger ( two of the best post players in the past 20 years).

Go small. We've already seen teams just double and sometimes triple team Wesson in the paint and that's just going to get worse as we play bigger/better teams. He's on an island in there and what we've seen recently is he gets frustrated and starts drifting... if he's going to keep drifting just go small to start the game and then let him come off the bench and attack the second unit from the other team.

Having four smalls and one big is just pointless. You end up with two styles of basketball.  Last couple of games we've had much better flow when Wesson goes to the bench..... and that is NOT me knocking Wesson..  we just don't have a half court roster right now and his game screams half court offense... 

At the very least until Kyle gets back going small allows us to get a lot of minutes for Washington, Ledee, Luther and Ahrens...

Here's hoping the right the ship here soon..

Go Bucks!

Speedy recovery Kyle!!!!!!

Go small and push the pace..... Woods, Washington, Jackson, Luther and LeDee.... 

Bring the Wesson brothers off the bench... ( and that's not meant as a knock on Kaleb Wesson... is what it is.. he has no help in the paint. Teams can double and triple team him). Let him come off the bench and work against the other teams second unit...

Go Bucks!

A three star OT #69 offensive tackle and #17 player in Ohio

Currently... which is meaningless. His tape suggests he's grown a couple of inches since last star update which will help... plus rule of thumb... NEVER look at the stars... look at the offers...  If the offers are there ( they are) the "star" folks will eventually fall in line..

Go Bucks!

I've got NO LOVE for the Bengals but Dalton looked fine until all the injuries started happening. Believe no other team lost more starters minutes than the Bengals last season. They were 4-1 and his QB rating was right around 100 and then people started dropping. I'd imagine there are plenty of people inside the organization who have no desire to take a QB right now.

Russell, Turner or heck even a guy like Ron Lewis would be a big upgrade... this team needs someone who can score on their own and that can close out games.. you want to win conference championships and make a run in the tourney you have to have an alpha dog.. 5 guys playing hot potato as the shot clock winds down is a recipe for an okay season and quick out in the tourney.. 

Go Bucks!

Some fixes... one there's a freaking ref looking right at the play in the Saints game. That dude needs to be done for the season, suspended some games and fined. No reason refs shouldn't be held accountable the same way players are...

Second thing just give coaches an extra challenge in the last 2 minutes of the half and game where they can challenge ANYTHING. 

Third thing would be some sort of booth buzzer on OBVIOUS missed calls. I would leave holding and pass interference off of this because that happens on every play but just about everything else should be free to be overturned imo. The Brady roughing was an obvious goof that someone could have instantly buzzed down and said pick up the flag... 

Fourth thing that would clean things up would be just expanding the boot review.. Last 2 minutes right now... why not make that last 3 minutes or last 4 minutes of each half...

Go Bucks~

Bunch of missed calls in both games.... but Coaches just as much to blame.... Payton could have run down the clock to about a minute left and left the Rams with no timeouts but passed the ball for some reason and stopped the clock twice... left the Rams with a 1:41 and a timeout... HORRIBLE clock management by Payton...

Fast forward to game #2....  Here's an idea... Brady is going to look for Edleman over the middle... I don't care if it's a pick play... at some freaking point leave someone in the middle of the freaking field... Romo predicted like 4 plays in a row based on the Chiefs coverage and just didn't understand why they kept running it... they just continued to leave the middle of the field open...

Go Bucks!

EXCELLENT photo........ and glad to see it wasn't what I thought it was :) My first reaction was... did someone just start a forum post talking about taking a vitamin b2 shot???

Go Bucks!!!!

Comment 21 Jan 2019

Going to be interesting to see how Coach Day handles the 4 game thing. I get the injury thing but outside of that just seems foolish not to have Freshman play 4 games. When I heard Urban say "he dropped the ball on some things" this sure feels like one of them. There's a chance Jones could be our starting center this year and you couldn't find a few snaps for him when we were up 40+ on Rutgers, Tulane and Oregon State? and there were other games we had put away late as well.. just seems sort of reckless not to get Freshman snaps..

Go Bucks!

Comment 20 Jan 2019

I'm saying ownership wanted someone on board with Winston... they hired Bruce Arians... the same Bruce Arians that's known Winston for over a decade since Winston attended his QB camp... They aren't taking a QB in the first round.. ZERO chance..

Go Bucks!

Comment 20 Jan 2019

As I said will gladly eat crow.... but look at the Giants schedule this year... they lost a TON of close games and had one of the worst offensive lines in football.. there are also PLENTY of rumblings that some people inside the organization don't think Eli was the problem and that surrounded by a good offensive line could play another 2-3 years... Heck, just go back less than year ago.... You could cut and paste the same headlines that Giants were in dire need of a QB and they went running back with Saquan... 

and simple math tells me he won't end up on the Giants... Kiper almost NEVER gets the right team. Someone broke down 5 recents drafts and Kiper successfully slotted 8 dudes out of 160 in the first round.. ( again though.. he doesn't do trades, free agency or coaching when he slots these dudes)

They need the next QB for sure... but so do the Steelers, Chargers, Saints and Patriots etc etc... doesn't mean they are taking one..

Go Bucks!

Comment 20 Jan 2019

Winner and losers I would agree I guess. Way too many people would need to be involved to make the Rams the winner today... over/under though tends to be a lot more suspicious at times.. in every sport..

Go Bucks!

Comment 20 Jan 2019

Most of the dudes who could probably help are dreaming of million dollar NFL gigs. Last thing they want to do ( or Coach Day wants them to do) is get some injury playing basketball.. Just don't see this happening.. ever..

Go Bucks!

Comment 20 Jan 2019

Will GLADLY eat crow but still think Haskins slides outside the top 10. Haskins to the Giants makes a ton of sense but Kiper doesn't deal with free agency or coaches. Flacco and Foles are going somewhere and if they go to the Giants or Jags it futzes things up.

The other thing Kiper doesn't factor in is Coaches. Pat Shurmur Coaches the Giants. His seat is sort of one step lower than warm. The history of the NFL is loaded with examples of Coaches in similar situations not wanting to take a QB because a lot of times it ends up costing them their job. 

Giants make all the sense in the world but they could go free agency or they could try and trade back and take multiple offensive lineman to put around Eli for another year or two and punt the next QB a draft or two..

Go Bucks!

Comment 20 Jan 2019

I tend to lean tin foil..... There were some AWFUL calls at the end of the game but refs tend to swallow their whistles at the end of playoff games in every sport ( well minus the NBA because they are the worst).

If I was a Saints fan I'd have more of an issue with Paytons love fest for Taysom Hill. I just don't get the need to bring him in at all outside of the occasional inside the 5 yard line.. Just killed drives, he. almost fumbled, couldn't line up and had teammates yelling at him... just don't get it...

Go Bucks!

While I think it's earned it's nickname the "morgue" I think the bigger problem isn't the fans as much as where they have people sitting. Duke gets CRAZY loud but a good chunk of that is because they wisely put the students on top of the court.  Once you get past that first 15 or so rows of students it starts to look like a lot of other arenas.. for sure though those above the students feed off that but there's people sitting in those sections just like Ohio State... you just never see them on TV..

Ohio State chased money. What you see for way too many seats near the court are a LOT of corporate seats that a lot of times end up in the hands of clients from out of town who have no rooting interest in the game. How loud are you going to cheer if you are in Charlotte for business and a company gives you seats to the Hornets game.. 

Making things worse are a lot of the corporate seats go unused. Probably a half dozen times a year... easy... you go on ticketmaster and the lower bowl is sold out and then you flip on the game and there are empty lower bowl seats everywhere....

I still think the fix is to just tarp the upper deck.. make it lower bowl only.... every game sells out... and then rebuild at some point on St John spot... kids were lazy when I was at OSU in the 90s and it's worse now.. the closer you can have the arena to campus the better...

As for Kaleb, he is facing a defense similar to a running back facing a stacked box because they cannot pass the ball. He already struggles against athletic front courts, but every team is going to pack it in and hardly give him room to breathe. 

That's the frustrating part... if they double him someone has to be WIDE open and most of the time they were doubling him the paint. Should have been one of those games where he just said if I can't get to the hoop I'm going to have 15 assists.. instead he got frustrated and forced things... finally he just started drifting out to the 3 point line and that doesn't do us a lick of good...

#23 for Maryland was fantastic at that.. double came and he kicked out to the open man...

Go Bucks!

Comment 18 Jan 2019

Tricky part is Wesson is probably the best player but I think you can have a better 5 with him on the bench and just go small. Teams are just going to continue to do what Maryland did. You double team Wesson in the paint, he gets frustrated and drifts out to the 3 point line and it just turns into a mess. Much better offense when we don't try and run everything through Wesson....

A LOT of season left.... not anywhere close to giving up on these dudes yet...

Go Bucks!

Comment 18 Jan 2019

And nice move by Holtman to swap Wesson out for Washington... Let's get a run before the break..

Go Bucks!

Comment 18 Jan 2019

Fell apart when Wesson came back in... much better spacing and pace when he was on the bench..

Go Bucks!
