Dane (3/4)



  1. wanted to wait until it was official, but a little bird led me to believe that he wanted to transfer out after last season, felt he didn't "fit in" with our group of guys but Marr asked TD to stay and if he still wanted to leave after this year then so be it....still sucks given the success this program is having....but as many have said...NEXT MAN UP
  2. I was able to listen to most of Joe's interview. The one thing he said that stuck with me was about getting national exposure....wonder if seeing and hearing and reading about Heurter put stars in his own eyes....someone has to be in his ear telling him he is better than he is IMO...good luck to Joe, hope he finds what he's lookin' for....I personally think he and UA was a perfect fit for his game...I also agree about Wheeler Baker. That kid showed so much potential and ended up ruining his college career when he want back out his way. I still can see his drive through the lane in traffic one-handed slam....we don't see that from our athletes too often...what could have been!!!
  3. I said good riddance in my initial comment which was too harsh. But my point was if the kids want to leave and don't want to ride our their careers at UA then what else is there to say. I will hold out until Monday though as it still seems "odd". IMO, Joe is/was at UA for a reason and not at a so-called power 5 school. I personally think he is at the perfect level for him to have success. HE has trouble creating his own shot, limited foot speed, defense questionable. How is he going to have success at a level where everyone will be bigger and quicker than he is??? I just don't see it.
  4. Trust me I’m fine. I just find it ironic on March 29th with Easter being April 1st that this crazy news comes out that’s all. If they decide to go. Good riddance
  5. Guys. Any chance this is an early April fools joke?? I might buy one but both???
  6. Wilkins Q&A with Fields in the Sunday TU says it all how focused this kid is on only winning and not worrying about his stats or the LAX "heisman", very mature kid and a great leader for this team.....I say enjoy the ride as well and hope we make history in MAY!!!
  7. as a local guy and someone who loved that Cremo came to UA, giving him a pass this year and hammering Nichols is unfair. Joe scored a lot yes but let's be honest. He was a disaster late in games at times also...bad shots, many unforced turnovers, forced turnovers and someone who cant keep a guy in front of him...he was more of a first half star than anything this year sans a handful of games. I expected way more from him this year, along with Nichols...with that said, I also agree any Brown bashing or wanting him to go is unwarranted...
  8. if you have a recovery room nearby, Im pretty sure they all have direct TV and the Big10 Network is part of the Direct TV package!!!! I know the RR in Malta and down by Alb Med do...
  9. after a really really good non-conference start, a couple of totally winnable games against Memphis and Lou....to have this league season go the way it has is thoroughly a HUGE disappointment. Don't think I have ever been frustrated with a team as this one. Clearly the boys are worn down IMO. TOO MANY MINUTES. I get the bench is not what we need but clearly Joe has played way too many minutes as his game in the second half lately has become less than good. missed open shots, no lateral movement on D, not that he has much anyway, ill advised passes, unforced turnovers etc etc. When things go well he looks great but as this season has gone on, our starters are clearly fatigued....SUCKS big time.
  10. hate to say it, our team is soft. little toughness ever shown, so annoying watching Vt. get so many boards uncontested. makes no sense at all. we rebound well against other teams but VT plays harder than we do and it is easy to see....that sequence of missed FT, prayer 3 and missed FT was a huge problem but it was our supposed BEST 2 players who missed em. Also, as much as I love Cremo, the complaining he does needs to be stopped. His ankle was def. a hindrance as he was favoring it on his jumpers....so disappointing...
  11. Agree...coincidence how well David plays to how well the team plays??? I think not.. any update on Cremo?? watching game on phone that was as bad a looking inverted roll as I have seen and he def. came down on it too....hopefully looked worse than it is. as far as that sub situation...I believe it was disallowed because the whistle blew for a non-basketball related issue???
  12. my opinion is at this point the UA confidence has taken a hit. I agree that it will be better for us to play the tougher teams right now. While S.B. isn't the best compared to previous years, they are still upper echelon in this league and we played quite well against them. I believe we will start to play better against the tougher competition. with that said, I firmly believe at the end of the day, this team will go as David goes and with him still struggling, the team is struggling. His athleticism is the difference for us in both transition and breaking down an opponent. As good as Joe is, his lack of blow by potential is the only think preventing him from scoring 20+ per game. Charles has been the MVP this season and hopefully he keeps it up. Right now it is a tough watch I agree, but rather they get their wakeup call still early in league play after a record OOC start. GO DANES!!!
  13. I agree with you, Cremo's lack of lateral foot speed is a hindrance and when Stire pops up to help on the ball screen it takes him too long to get back to his man IMO causing openings for others
  14. Who was his responsibiiity vs. Hartford? Campbell guarded that quick point guard who scored 13 in first half, for almost the entire 2nd half and held him scoreless until the end after Nichols covered him in the first half. I believe he made 2 foul shots and ended with 15????
  15. my opinion in this game, Hartford clearly bothered our guys with their sneaky length and toughness. I also felt once Hartford got up 20, they clearly stopped playing to win the game and started trying to just run clock which helped us get back in the game. I had little problem with the calls once I saw the replays, outside that bogus block on Stire. His issue has always been that he rides the guy he covers all the time and we have to hope he doesn't get called for it... practice this AM will prob. suck big time for the kids but something has to light a fire for these slow starts...finally bit us....Charles did foul on the 3, which is too bad because the shot was going to be missed and was and we would have had a chance to take lead and if we had, I expected we would have won. Hats off to Hartford, hate to say it, but I liked how they ran their offense until that 10 minute period when we made that run....I expect this loss will end up being a positive...GO DANES!!
