  1. I see TDM as a 6th man high energy spark. For those of you old like me, think Vinnie Johnson. Early in the season, I thought we were starting to see signs of the pre-surgery Noah returning, but he's reverted to just being a guy who brings the ball up the court. He seems to be a great kid and I'd love to see him succeed, but right now this team needs a spark and I've seen no signs recently that he's the guy who can provide it.
  2. Amen. Doesn't even need to be a lot of it; just a different look every once and a while. Another thing I;d like to switch out of is our big man always jumping the ballhandler on the high pick and roll. It is just too predictable.
  3. I'm glad you started this one. I started the last two and .... Buffalo will again try to draw Big Dog outside then blow around him, like last time. Hopefully, they won't get off to the hot start they did at the JAR. I'm really hope we start seeing some more offense from Noah. I love his assist to turnover ratio, but anymore it seems like he gets the ball up the floor, passes, then disappears. I often wonder how the offense would look with Antino back at the point.
  4. Easy there... No one said he shouldn't be able to post. In fact, they were subtly exercising their first amendment right to imply he's a goofball.
  5. It shouldn't EVER come down to a late call against a bad sub .500 team.
  6. At best, we only ever get 4 guys back when other teams push the ball. The bear that Big Dog's grandpa, Walter Johnson of the Browns, used to wrestle back in the 60's gets up the court faster than Dog. I'm looking forward to see if KD mixes things up for Buffalo.
  7. I'd give them some game time off at this juncture. LOL.
  8. OK, I've calmed down now and I'm more rational. This is all Kreed's fault.
  9. Lose at Buffalo Win against Miami Lord knows against PCCC Lose in MAC final Lose in NIT opener to Our Lady of Perpetual Mediocrity Lather, rinse, repeat... I may be more positive tomorrow after the pi$$iness wears off.
  10. No one should be too surprised. We all saw the weaknesses in this team but it was easy to look the other way when they kept pulling games out. Those weaknesses are now getting magnified. I heard two or three weeks ago that the team had a "morale problem" and I dismissed it. I'm beginning to wonder now if there's an issue as I see no fire in these guys. Also, again, could someone tell me who the leader(s) is/are on this team?
  11. The next time the Zips stop dribble penetration will be the first time the Zips stop dribble penetration.
  12. We need TDM and Antino to interject some energy.
  13. Announcers are awful. We've had Anteeeeeeeno Jackson, Isaiah Jackson and an obvious confusion between Josh Williams and Aaron Jackson.
  14. Ugh. Ugly start. Would someone please play defense on Jimmy Chitwood? They look tired and uninspired. The 7 BG fans are starting to get into the game.
  15. I think the team in general shoots too many rushed threes, including Kwan. I am resolved to the fact that the Zips offense is in large part based upon the three ball, but they all too often hoist well guarded rushed threes, which drives me a little nuts.
  16. Zips aren't blowing out anybody. The "opponent plus 6.5" bet is a safe one these days.
  17. The location of the MAC tourney is not important to GT as he'll be covering it from his recliner.
  18. I think it's an important game for the psyche of the team coming off of a painful loss.
  19. Sorry Kreed, looks like we posted at about the same time. I figured everyone else had given up!
  20. Time to move on. The Zips head to the Stroh Center Tuesday night to face an 11-16 BG team. BG is coming off of a 3 game losing streak to Buffalo, WMU and OU. Senior guard Zach Denny leads BGSU at 12.7 a game. The Zips won the other season matchup at the JAR 89-84 in early January.
