Re: Houston Game Thread

Unbelievable that we have been double digit dogs in 8 of 12 conference games. We are 4-4 against the spread in these games. The worse spread the worse we perform. In spreads of 11.or more we are 1-4 against the spread. This will be the 2nd largest spread of the season. We failed to cover the 22 we w...

Re: Zhang

Zhang is what he is - a streaky shooter with some size who has the inconsistency of a freshman handicapped by a system that results in a lot of players standing around waiting for someone to do something. Unfortunately, what’s not inconsistent is his poor defense - some of the weakest close outs I’...

Re: Dannen “100% Dunleavy returns” Ed Daniels with the story

Ok, quick question: Do you all know that we literally don't have a point guard? Seems like all everybody is looking at is our record but not at the actually game/roster makeup. But I'm sure the usual suspects will say I'm wrong so, whatever. And again, do you all know that there was a PG and two NB...

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

Thankfully we don't have to guess what it would be like if only MD had a healthy PG to lead the team. We also don't have to guess what it would be like if he was able to pair that PG with some NBA level talent. Let's look all the way back to last year when with this threesome of talent, along with a...

what gbg will never address is why was this team terrible last year with a healthy Ona Embo and 2 players that have been invited to NBA camps this year (one drafted as a top 40 player.) This silly excuse that he and TD are giving has already been proven wrong. It makes no difference if MD has a PG. ...

Nobody ever finishes their contract. MD does have some big time recruits coming to campus this weekend and has some others committe...

Then we are in terrible hands with a man that is either afraid to admit a mistake, not smart enough to realize that we are exponentially worse 3 years into this "rebuild", or has negotiated a contract that handcuffs him from making the right choice. Hoping this is setting up a graceful exit for Dunl...

Re: WSU Whips Tulane 77-62

Some bright side news. The new NET ranking system caps a point differential at 10 for a win or loss. So getting blown out isn't hurting as as badly as it could. We move up 2 spots to 292 in the latest rankings by not even covering the double digit spread in our only game of the week. Moving on up....

Re: Mike Dunleavy is now worst of the worst

I'll admit that I don't know what's on his thumb. The lack of acknowledgement that we have 2 years of results of what this coach can do with a PG and some pretty decent talent makes the argument he can make us a winner (if he had these two ingredients) in the future baseless. However, I will agree t...

0-10 in conference. Geez! It's still all about the turnovers...... Swampnik, you only have to look to last year to see that if we had a PG we'd only average 13 TO. per game instead of the 15 we are averaging this year. Those 2 extra possessions would maybe result in at least 1 win. Maybe not. Just ...

Re: WSU Whips Tulane 77-62

another notch in the Dunleavy coaching belt. After a fairly competitive first half, he draws up some killer halftime adjustments that result in one FG in the first 10 minutes of the 2nd half. Those impressive 5 points weren't enough to keep us close. However, I was excited to see the stat/graphic wi...

If you check, there's only THREE G5s ranked in the top 65. Boise St, UCF and FAU. Boise St and UCF have a track record, FAU signed 32 recruits so their ranking is inflated. In fact, Cincinnati is the ONLY G5 school to sign less than 20 commits and be ranking higher than us.
Nice analysis.

If we give MD another year we will fall into the same trap we did in years 1 and 2 and delay the rebuild another 2 years. Year 1 MD took over a team coming off of a 12 win (3 conf) season that lost Dabney (a career 38% shooter) and Dylan O. He added Ona Embo, Slater and Reyes. He inherited Reynolds,...
