  1. Has a coach ever had immediate success switching to a different scheme? You rarely hear of that - I know I cannot think of one example. But maybe it's out there. I want to know about it, and how things went in year 1, when the coach didn't have much experience with it. I think a side effect of this era is going to be simplification. Since players and coaches don't see each other for more than 1 or 2 years, don't try and coach up something that takes 2+ years to fully grasp. Keep it simple and get them to execute it better than the opponent executes theirs. Coincidentally for us, this is where the Leach tree excels.
  2. I feel the opposite. I Feel like there are signs Hodge is an INCREDIBLE coach, he's just missing some pieces.
  3. Did you score four touchdowns in a single game while playing for the city championship game versus Andrew Johnson High School, including the game-winning touchdown in the final seconds against our old nemesis, Bubba "Spare Tire" Dixon?
  4. Yesterday was a tough loss. How about we talk about what we know, now that we are 8 games into this new regime. I thought @Censored by Laurie said something notable: we have no offense and no closer. Under Grant, we had no offense but at least we had a closer. I was thinking about last night. Granted, I'm no X-and-O guys, but it just seems to me a paradox: how are we (seemingly) so good at moving the ball around the perimeter, but for the life of us we are awful at positioning ourselves underneath the basket for a layout or an up-close jumper? I feel like we are helpless and have no idea how to get the ball inside. Sometimes a guard, like Jones, Noland, and/or Edwards gets it done, but it's not consistent. They disappear for long, inconvenient stretches. Sussoko needs to develop. He is hurting us more often than not. ....or am I seeing this wrong? Hodge needs to grow. I like to think we have some pretty capable offensive skills on the court, and we are not showing it.
  5. I am much more interested in long term comparisons. See, 2013 Dan McCarney.
  6. I have zero insight. I only speculate that some enter the portal thinking NIL offers will come AFTER their name is out there. ...and, by extension, that suggests we are not offering them any NIL in Denton.
  7. I don't know if this has been talked about, but I personally feel better today about Rogers. If he was going to go to the portal, I feel like it would have been annoucned by now.
  8. Seems like it's been a few years since we've anyone that could break down their man off the dribble. I feel like that's Noland's value.
  9. My 0.02: You definitely want the best teams in, based on quality of play at time of selection. This means the beginning of the season doesn't hold as much value. A team can be playing much better at the end of the season compared to the beginning. I think this is what the committee currently strives for ....BUT, I want a system that allows for any and all undefeated teams a chance, too. You cannot deny a team the opportunity if they haven't lost. Until they lose, you never know.
