  1. Cremo nichols leave...

    And I’ll add that as a former collegiate athlete if I was given the opportunity to go compete for a top ranked team and possibly help them compete for championships, up to a national championship, experience the sport at the highest level, be on TV every weekend, I know what I’d do. And wether everybody wants to admit it they’d do the same. To root against these young men is childish at best.
  2. Cremo nichols leave...

    “Enjoying how it all ended”? Joe certainly didn’t get what he expected but during the season played a fair amount in the Big East. Nichols is in the Sweet 16 and plays significant minutes and is a key component to an ACC team. I’m certain most of us would sign up for that. What would have been successful at FSU for David in your opinion?
  3. Technical difficulties? Or just me?
  4. No, I didn’t see the last 5 minutes. Left at the 4 minute TO. Possibly the first time I’ve ever left before 1 minute left. Painful. Not entertaining. Ugly. Uninspired.
  5. I hope you’re right on Lulka. I fear he’s getting numbers just based on minutes and nobody else down there. Time will tell.
  6. I'm not sure I can get on board w/ the "we had to pick players off the scrap pile" as a reason for what's happening. We started the season w/ 3 guys that would have been starting w/ or w/o Cremo and Nichols. Clark has basically stepped in as Nichols? So Healy had to replace Cremo and we'd need to live w/ a depleted bench. Well, outside of a few games, our bigs (including Campbell as a starting small forward to start the season) just aren't very good. And don't give me Lulka's numbers. I watch the games. He's not very good. He's played a lot of ball and even redshirted so I'm not sure how much he will improve. Campbell is Campbell. And Hanks??? He was a projected starter from the start right? Unless we went small. So yes, recruiting doesn't seem to be there lately. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I don't think athletic players want to play the style of ball that we play. Obviously the style gets a pass when we are winning but it's not exciting to watch or play in my opinion. So no this isn't a "fire WB" statement but it is a WB doesn't get a pass just because he lost Cremo and Nichols. Recruiting isn't up to par and this performance is awful. Did I expect a down year? Of course. But this is a terrible conference that UA with it's reputation should not finish below 5th place, ever.
  7. While I fully understand that this wasn't the plan, I'm not sure how this sets us this far behind. Even if I were to give the youth/inexperience a pass we only have 5/6 guys that can even find playing time? One of those a senior that quite honestly shouldn't. As a quick comparison on a minutes per game basis UVM only has 2 seniors in their top 7. Are you comfortable that our youth will improve so much that they'll compete w/ UVM's youth? Won't their youth improve too?
  8. Ok. When I enter that door prior to games there’s usually a handful of people there. Maybe I enter too close to top off, usually 5 minutes.
  9. I would agree with opening it up somewhat. I’d think it be based in annual giving or based on overall GDAC points. They’ve clearly set the bar too high as it is very lightly used. If you are say top 150 or 200 you’ve been a good friend to the athletic department but that’s not taken into consideration unless you hit $1,000 that year. In theory you could be top ten in GDAC points but not have access. Just my opinion.
  10. How do we not have a single player that would start on UVM?
  11. Cremo nichols leave...

    Cremo had a nice game against UConn today. Started and played 31 minutes w 11 points. 3 for 3 from 3, all of those early in the 2nd half during a big Nova run. It was tied at the half.
  12. It’s not this game in a vacuum. It’s that we have 3 wins. 1 vs a MAAC team. 1 vs a dIII ream. 1 vs a winless team. Combine that with these ugly losses and offense that just looks awful for long stretches, or entire games. Very disappointing.
  13. Dentist at least provides some Novocain and maybe some more.
