  1. I still think Dawson should start. He's a dog who can shoot and drive to the basket. He's 6'5" & built like a bull. I agree with Groce bringing Dailey off the bench. But I just don't think Tribble should be starting over Dawson. Tribble starting gives us a starting PG who is 5'8", and two wings, Trimble at 6'2", and Tribble at 6'1". 5'8", 6'1" and 6'2" is pretty small. Especially considering the only offense Tribble brings to the table is driving to the basket. Whoever is guarding Tribble knows he can sag way off him. Anyway, the point of my post is not to bash on Tribble. I love his hustle, athleticism, and defense. I'm glad he's a Zip. But I think Dawson should be the starter. Now, if only the coaching staff would get wise & listen to me. Lol.
  2. I agree. LCJ's got to get more of an LBJ mindset. During the first quarter of games LeBron often passes up open looks to get his teammates the ball, purposefully trying to get his teammates going & into the flow of the game. It's a team game.
  3. I really like BG's Matheny (sp?). He's going to be a load to handle for the foreseeable future. We recruited him.
  4. He just said, "Their team-ism was better than ours." 😅
  5. This is true. I've been vocal about my disappointment in Dailey, but during the preseason I had Currie penciled into my starting lineup prediction. I've also got to say, I still would like to see Dawson in the starting lineup. I know Tribble's a very athletic defender, but I just don't see the reason for him getting PT in front of Dawson.
  6. Our offense is in a funk presently, but we still scored 71. We can't be giving up 83 points and expect to win.
  7. LCJ dominating the ball so much no one else has been able to get into any sort of rhythm.
  8. We’ve turned into a one-man show. Sub-optimal. Everyone (save Freeman) standing around watching LCJ.
  9. IMO, Ohio's non-conference schedule is perfect: home -v- Syracuse home -v- Duquesne at Louisiana at Northwestern
  10. The MAC did this hype video right! Saturday, September 4 - at Auburn Saturday, Septmber 11 - Temple Saturday, September 18 - Bryant Saturday, September 25 - at Ohio State Saturday, October 2 - Ohio Saturday, October 9 - at BUGS Saturday, October 16 - at Fiami Saturday, October 23 - Canada Saturday, October 30 - Bye Tuesday, November 2 - Ball Sweat Tuesday, November 9 - at Western Michigan Saturday, November 20 - Brimfield CC Saturday, November 27 - at Toledo Extremely difficult, but nice schedule. I like having all Saturday games until when the weather starts turning nasty in November. One gripe in that I prefer having the KSUcks game earlier in the season to take advantage of nice fall weather. But we do have the Ohio game at home in early October, so that's nice. Hopefully we'll have the weather cooperate for the October 23rd game -v- Buffalo.
  11. That video was amazing. I also appreciated that it included Brutus Buckeye among the MAC mascots Zippy was whooping up on. 💪💪
  12. HAY PROBLEMA? Oh, you guys have no idea.
  13. Keep posting! Trust me, no one knows less about soccer than me.
  14. I loved our first half. Complete domination. That was good, old-fashioned Zips' soccer. But then I was disappointed as Kentucky really controlled the 2nd half. Does anyone know what adjustments they made? The first OT was a draw, but we seemed to really control the 2nd OT & Kentucky seemed glad to come away with the draw. Someone already mentioned this, but Kentucky’s goal felt more like an (un)fortunate bounce than a skillful goal. This was the first I’ve seen the team play this year, but I’ll take an effort like that first half any day!
  15. I just remember being nervous about that game &, more precisely, the matchup at PG w/ Preston being 8 inches taller than LCJ, but then LCJ pretty easily getting the better of him.
  16. Isaiah Childs received an offer from Butler C.C. I wonder if academics were an issue for him? Edit: He also received an offer from Highland C.C.
  17. I feel like somehow we need to shake things up a little. 1. Start Dawson over Dailey. Bring Maishe off the bench & just tell him to take a deep breath and focus on playing suffocating D; let any offense just take care of itself. 2. Bring in Clarke as our #2 PG as opposed to Tribble. Tribble is more of a 2 guard. He doesn't have the typical handles of a PG. (...nor the typical shot of a 2 guard 😐) 3. If we play as lackadaisically as we did today, then Marshall should play more. That guy hustles. Maybe even start Marshall and make Ali our official 6th Man. That's not a demotion of Ali, it's a promotion. He'd be the undisputed leader of our 2nd unit & would give us more spark off the bench. Just thoughts.
  18. He played a very forgettable game... like we collectively did today. Lol
  19. Preston played the first time we met this year.
  20. That’s what I was thinking; they look burned out. This was their 5th road game out of the last 6 games. Maybe that’s what it was. Idk but they didn’t have any energy or form on either end of the floor today.
  21. I saw Mason McMurry a few times at Stow. He’s an... agitator. Lol.
