  1. 2019 Recruiting

    Agreed. It looks like they're having fun with the snow. I thought it might have been a disaster. Especially considering one of our recruits, whom I believe visited last week, had an OV to USF this weekend. Lol.

  3. Game 18 - MIAMI (OH) REDHAWKS

    UAZippers, I agree with your post save one caveat, which I highlighted above. Utomi is built like a Greek god, but I don't think he's an athletic freak. To me he looks kinda slow, kinda stiff, can't elevate & can't handle the ball very well. He's a shooter. When his outside shot's not falling I don't think he has great confidence taking it to the hoop. Even on occasional fast breaks he can't elevate to throw it down. It looks like he's usually trying to draw a foul. I know Utomi's awfully chill, but you're right, it looks like he's playing passively. Kreed's point about having to spend so much energy on defense may be the problem. Anyhow, I like the attitudes of Ivey, Cheese & Banks (even Toles - in street clothes on the bench - is a wellspring of positive energy). I wish Utomi would follow suit.

    ABJ/GT: RedHawks crash the glass to dominate Zips From the article: -Zips shot only 39% -including only 23% from behind the arc -were out-rebounded 43-31 -Zip's bench only scored 4 points to Miami's 23. All stats courtesy of George Thomas -click the article please

    Ivey & Utomi both with quiet 1st halves. Riak playing nice D down low.

    Love how Cheese is taking it to the hole. Gotta keep breaking down their defense off the dribble penetration.

    I wasn't complementing Ivey. I was trying to say that if LePear is playing even close to the level Ivey is come his senior year, I'll be very pleasantly surprised. LePear has a lack of self-confidence Ivey never did. LePear has a tendency to hang out beyond the 3-line & he didn't start driving to the hoop even against high school competition until the state tournament of his senior year. That's just my prognostication and of course I hope I'm wrong.

    ^^Fully agree. Watching him develop mentally and emotionally into one of the best leaders I’ve seen in a long time has been a joy.
  9. Scholarship Chart

    Nice. And thank you! I don't know if Zip Watcher (who started this thread & maintained the up-to-date scholarship chart) is on here anymore.

    I love LePear & enjoyed watching him in high school. But Ivey’s on a different level than LePear right now.
  11. Welcome Tom Arth!

    +1. This past year’s OOC schedule was perfect.
  12. Game 16- Northern Illinois Huskies

    We must have already had our 3 verbal commits last year before it became obvious Cotton wasn’t going to mesh with the culture Groce was looking to implement?
  13. Game 17- Eastern Michigan

    ABJ: Zips struggling offensively in MAC play Pretty good article concerning our offensive woes. I'm not surprised by this; the MAC is a physical conference and this is the 1st go-around for a number of our guys. They'll adjust. But I'm not optimistic about tonight. EMU's really feeling their oats right now.

    We desperately need another PG & we don't have one coming in for next year either.
