    2019 NIT Tournament

    Arkansas playing with good intensity. We better not come out flat or this game could get ugly.

    Team Chemistry Issues?

    Jake seems to be a player we can all get behind. Even if he makes a mistake, he did it with 100 percent of effort put forth. I can understand this frustration from Jake's father, it's gotta be tough watching someone play defeated and get the lions share of minutes. I just hope Jake can stay positive and work enough to force the staffs hand, he can be a big help down the line with is motor.

    Reminds me a little of Jeremy Hollowell. So much potential, but something is off.

    Does Smith get compensated for how much air he gets on an airball?

    So some concerns I’m having...

    That's what I see as well. He is thinking too much before he takes an opening. He probably needs to strengthen his core a bit more as well, he is getting bullied right now. Effort on defense last game was drastically improved however, so that is a huge step in right direction. Love his potential and I hope he shows us more confidence moving forward. Look forward to seeing his growth.

    (2018) SG Romeo Langford - INDIANA HOOSIERS

    Wow, sorry if this has been brought up. I didn't realize that the top 3 scorers are seniors on a terrible Vandy team. Asking freshman to resurrect this team from the bottom of the SEC, is asking a lot. Only one player returning that averages above 10. It is a super class for Vandy as it stands, but I can't see them coming in and dominating the SEC without some depth on the bench.
  7. Moore seems like a perfect redshirt scenario. I really liked how Ryan used redshirts at Wisky, and the fact that this is even on the table makes me happy. By all indications Cujo would have been a redshirt under a coach like Ryan and by his second season more than likely a real factor. Same with Hartman in my opinion. I understand many players would not want to go this route, but look a player like Happ. He was not ready immediately and now is arguably one of the best big men in the country next season. Certainly one of the best in the big ten.

    Retain Tom Crean Thread

    Because if Crean is not clappy then no body is clappy.

    It was freshman he was referring to. Again I am paraphrasing, but yeah, in a post game interview he threw that bit of wisdom out there. I wish I could find the comment. I remember looking over at my Dad and asking if that was somehow a joke. Unfortunately for us fans he meant it.

    It was a comment he made once and in that moment I decided I was ready for a change. I still wanted him to succeed, mind you, but now I just want this era to end. I'll start with some context. We all watched the Hollowell debacle unfold. The pouty half hearted performances night in and night out. Well there it was: Jeremy finally hit a jumper. It was smooth, in rhythm, all net, hell I think he even smiled. He didn't make it to the half court line and Crean had someone off the bench to sub in for him. Later in a press conference he said this was a philosophy of his, to take a guy out of the game after a successful moment. So they could reflect or some nonsense . I'm paraphrasing here, but the point is this: Anyone who has played sports has an understanding that when you hit a stride you play it out for its duration, let the magic unfold. Maybe in some competitive yoga league this is a good practice, but this is basketball, and that may be the single most ridiculous thing I have ever heard a coach say. More recently Davis and the Michigan game. Coach said it best: They didn't have an answer for him. Correct, so let's sit him for the majority of the game. More games then I care to remember, guys would get rolling, we would be up by 10 or 12, and then the platoon comes in and we are down 12 within minutes. Never a timeout called during these momentum shifts and there is Crean clapping, flipping through his charts and grafts, or pacing like a chained animal. No feel for the game. None

    (2017) PF Clifton Moore Jr. to IU

    Maybe he could be Hanner with the work ethic that seems to be more in place with this group. I could imagine that being special actually. Could be more in year two or three if he is that raw though. I haven't seen him play honestly, but the Hanner-flashbacks portion has me thinking what could have been. I have a feeling if a guy like Hanner comes in with this group it would be a very different outcome. Most of my feelings are gas related for what it's worth. I think Moore has the size and fluidity to flourish under Crean personally, again year 2 more so. He is awfully skinny. Hopefully Crean pulls a Bryant out of his pocket before this is all over with.

    (2017) PF/C Sterling Manley to UNC

    They just got a PF commitment in Huffman, I wonder if this is still valid, or if this was to push one or the other along.

    Looking to next season

    I think this is where we really miss Troy. The guy could get his on the boards. Between the three sophomores we should be more then fine in that department though.

    BTN option...

    Thanks much, this will be the way I go.

    So on the Playstation set up. Can you record these games anyway?
