  1. 7 more months till basketball starts again.
  2. I was just as mad, frustrated and disappointed by the loss yesterday as everyone else but to call this a choke job and wasted season, as some on this board have, is way off base. Before the season began, we lost our two best scorers and post. Hamlet being arguably, one the best players we have had in program history. We were picked to finish 6th in our division. If you had told me this team would set the school record for consecutive wins and win the regular season title by 2 games, I'd have questioned your sanity. This team is a bunch of Hard working, over achievers, that almost no other D1 schools wanted. We don't pass the eyeball test warming up against UAB, FAU, Middle, UTEP or Western. All have better athletes than us. These 7 guys bought in to playing a hard style of basketball to be able to stay on the floor with more talented opponents. They put winning first. We didn't blow out any good teams this year. We won grind it out brawls. Not pretty to watch but effective because we made big plays in crunch time. We came up short Friday. It sucks but to say we choked is not fair. They earned the right to play in the NIT and I will be at every game possible. The old timers remember a time when we would have killed to get an NIT bid. No it's not the Dance but still a historic and respected tournament. Go Mean Green!
  3. If the game is close. Expect to see La La go to the hack a Bell.
  4. I think we would all love to get those type of top area recruits but those are usually not the type that want to play in this type of slow down, defense first system. I think you saw that with Woolridge and Gibson leaving to go to programs that play more pro style offenses that would showcase their talents. Now maybe if we could get those type of athletes Grant would change. Interesting question. I just think it would be really hard to convince a top HS player to come play in our current system. I really wish you hadn't mentioned Tommy Newman and Spud Webb thing. I was just starting to get over that!
  5. It was a big swing and a miss. Unfortunately, it happens. He played at the beginning of the season and wouldn't or couldn't fit in Grant's system.
  6. The style of game we play doesn't lend itself to getting a lot of points in NET, KENPOM ect. We get points for upsetting teams better than us and for beating the top teams in our conference on the road. Since our margin of victory is usually not very great, we need to accept the fact that we probably aren't going to be better than and 11 or 12 seed. We just aren't flashy and that's alright with me. Just ask Purdue. Let's just win!!!
  7. Let's quit worrying about NET points and just go win the conference tournament.
  8. I wonder if there is any chance this game gets moved with the possible bad weather coming in Wednesday. Hope not but with our weather, you never know.
  9. Remember that a lot of the empty seats with white banners are corporate season tickets that rarely get used. Hopefully they will be given out and used Saturday.
  10. Maybe will will have more than one person taking tickets at the 2 open gates!
  11. Anyone know if a replay of Saturday's game is available? Watching it once was not enough!
  12. If we win out and make it to the Championship game, We will get an at large bid with the national attention we are getting. Top defensive team in the country and winning out to the title game would give us a 18-19 game winning streak. Let's just win the tournament and dream about a 10 or 11 seed. Go Mean Green!
  13. We can't afford to look past FAU on Thursday. They are playing really well and are a physical team. Win Thursday and then Saturday will be HUGE! GMG
  14. Nobody...just a ploy to get your information.
  15. Don't forget The Mean Green Dunk Club during the early 1980's.
  16. Correct. Just hoping doesn't make it true.
  17. He met Grant while we were recruiting Ruben.
  18. He wanted to go to UNT out of HS but we went with Abou. Grant would have to change his philosophy quite a bit for it to work. Lofton isn't very strong on the defensive end and he wouldn't be on the floor at the same time as Abou.
  19. The extra couple of days may be a good thing. I think Tylor Perry could use the extra rest. It would be great if we didn't need to play him much against UTSA. Heard it is a groin strain. Those can linger for a long time if you don't let them heal correctly.
  20. Talked to La Tech fans yesterday and they don't draw fans either. Announced crowd yesterday was 4k but actually closer to 2700 to 3000.
