Also, as much fun as Trice is to watch board, he's a huge rough ridin' liability on the offensive end.

K-State is overrated but that has nothing to do with under performing.

oscar is rolling with a lot of different lineup combos and the offense is a little out of sync. Couple that with the unusually poor shooting from good shooters, which has even extended to the ft line, and the offense looks bad. Nothing to worry about at all.

The defense has been great.

We're good. We may even be really good.

Reason for optimism prior to season starting:
-Not necessarily winning 3 games last March
-expected minor improvement in maturity and consistency in Barry and dean
-return to pre-injury stokes
-as rising juniors substantive improvement in sneed and mawien
-sophomore leap for diarra and McGuirl
-addition of trice.

So far none of these except maybe Barry and trice.

This is why you play teams like we scheduled early in the season.   We'll be fine.....it's just taking the team a few games to gel and shake the rust off.  By the end of this month, the same people saying our season is over will be back here proclaiming we are final four bound.

I do not enjoy saying FSD is spot on in his analysis but here we are.

It's weird that guys like Diarra and McGuirl had success when our backs were against a wall and they had to come in and cover for guys we lost. I seriously think it's going to be awhile for all of these guys to find their new role now.

Starting out last night’s game almost seemed as if oscar was encouraging players to take 3s. We tried so many but just sucked at it. Only highlight of last night’s game for me was Brown once again turning it on when needed. He’s exactly the leader we need to keep this team on track.

Very good defense and much improved rebounding aren’t highlights for you? Good teams win games win they shoot like absolute dogshit. Mediocre/bad teams don’t.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Kennessaw State is trash. We should have destroyed them by more.

Denver might be a decent and make a move this year. Rodney Billups seems to be a good coach, they play solid defense and rebound, and shoot it a bunch. He's got some nice returners and added a couple grad transfers (one was a kid that played for Creighton against us, another from CU that is hurt). I wouldn't be surprised to see them contend for the Summitt. Plus they mix pack line man and zone and make you be patient, we weren't.

As for us, I don't think all our guards suck, but they have so far. Kam hasn't been good, but Carti and McGuirl haven't been good either. X looked good early, then struggled. Every one is concerned with Dean, but he's "just" averaging 13.5 and 12 with a solid Orting. Mak has been quiet, but good too. Trice is Trice and will help us, and Barry has done Barry things. Stockard has the amazing ability to play over 10 minutes and produce nearly zero stats. I wonder what Love and Shadd are doing. We won't be a 45% FT team and 18% 3PT team for the year. Defensively, we've been really good. I'm not real worried about these 2 games, let's see how we do against Penn/N Iowa and then hopefully Mizzou in this tournament.

Fair or not, good defense is just an expectation at this point for Cats teams, so I’m probably never going to focus on it until we play an offense that has put up gaudy numbers this season. Rebounding is encouraging but we’ll see what it looks like against better teams.

why we are going to be great:  returning starters
why we aren't going to be great:  returning starters

we aren't going to be great.  just another middle of the road oscar team.

Guys, there's no reason to disregard the optimism for this team. We watched them beat 5 NBA players in the Sweet Sixteen without Claws. Saw several role players play great in the tourney. Forecast is reasonable. Hopefully they clean things up soon. I would start by sitting Stokes and starting Diarra.

oscar seems to hold Stokes in much higher regard than your average Joe. I've never been entirely sure why. Diarra absolutely put this team on his back when Kam went down last year, not sure why that wasn't rewarded more handsomely. But, Diarra will be second fiddle as long as Kam is healthy, doesn't matter how either of them play.

  That might happen as soon as Diarra plays better than Kam.  So far he hasn't.

Well this is awful.  Just got this email with Flo Sports as the exclusive broadcaster.  They have a shitty deal with USA Rugby too and everything is crappy quality

Tonight's opponent.



They have a 6-9 guy who averages 28. He's pretty good. Nick Mayo, no relation to OJ.



Their other players kind of suck. They shoot 19% from 3 so far this year.

They want to play really fast. 87 possessions per game so far.
