  1. They would have stormed Polsky's
  2. Double yikes! That is brutal. I'm having flashbacks to Harney and Tree. I'm in too good a mood to list all the others.......
  3. Not to mention how many front ends of 1 & 1's we missed every year (Big Dog again comes to mind). It was not just the team's horrible percentage at the line, but we left a lot of scoring attempts behind as well and we were usually terrible in crunch time. KD won a lot of games by 1 or 2 that could have been 5 or 6 or more if we hit our shots. This is just another reason I enjoy watching LCJ so much. After all the years of watching our bigs hit iron, its so much fun to watch our automatic PG be the one at the line when it counts most.
  4. I enjoyed the Dambrot era, not counting the last couple of MAC Tourney runs, but I hated seeing a hot shooter hit 2 or 3 shots and then come out of the game at the first 4 minute mark timeout regardless of the situation (defensive match ups, other team's run, etc.) We also had a lot of streak shooters that once they sat never got back in the groove. I specifically remember several games where the shooter from Nitro, W Va., Brent McClanahan, would knock down back-to-back 3's and be out for a long time due to what appeared to be pre-determined rotations. I also don't miss the extended scoring droughts that seemed so common for Zips teams that had plenty of talent. Last but not least, I still have nightmares from being at close games in the JAR where the ball went in to Big Dog every late possession and he would get intentionally fouled to go put up bricks at the line. We lost a couple close games with him going 0-3. 0-4 from the line in the last minutes. Fortunately, Groce has delivered in a big way and the future looks bright. After being sooo close so many times with KD, if Groce gets us to the big dance and wins a game or two and heads to a bigger program, I will be all good with that. I want a banner that says more than most coaching wins hanging in the rafters. Go Zips.
  5. Nothing like a ZNO deep dive. I love it.
  6. MACtion went 2-0 in bowls. Nice showing for this crazy season.
  7. Best of luck to him. I hope he does well but he is taking one tough assignment.
  8. I believe Faust and possibly Owens had better winning percentages than Bowden (I'm not taking the time to check) and Brookhart has the only MACC of the bunch, but that doesn't mean I want any ot them back either. Williams moved on from Bowden and I wish you would as well. If the members of ZNO had voted and collectively fired Bowden for Arth I would understand the Bowden posts 2 years later, but that's not the case. Lastly, before you respond to this.....being ok with not bringing Bowden back does not mean being pro-Arth or pro-Williams so please don't attack as an Arth'er. It looks like a terrible hire and my guess is both the coach and AD will be done here when their contracts are up.
  9. Turnovers and the blocked punt. Some of BUGS' playcalling helped too.
  10. Very true, but I am going enjoy this one for awhile before worrying about UB.
  11. That was about the best thing I have seen in 2020. It should not have been that much fun streaming it on my phone, but it was. The kids came to play and definitely have not quit on Arth. I am so happy that they don't have to spend the off season hearing about the L streak.
  12. Agreed, catch you all in a few months. Be well and go Zips!
  13. I would not be surprised if the MAC follows the lead of the Ivy League and cancels fall sports altogether. To respond to the thread, I predict a 10% chance we play football (conference games only) this season. Spring season games?
