Re: Game 11, 2020-21: @ Rhode Island (2/6)

Helluva win. The kids we do have just dug in and executed the game plan and played their asses off. Smart on defense and composed on offense. McCrory needs to play 25+ every night out. He is a pain in the ass on both ends of the floor. And Gasperini is obviously limited athletically and sometimes lo...

Re: Game 10, 2020-21: Fordham (2/3)

I don’t know, I think when you have a limited lineup, i am ok with TJ and Carl taking as many threes as they want. They haven’t been great at this year but they have shown the ability to get hot. I don’t think their track record — especially TJ — is as good when trying to create off the dribble. It’...

Re: Game 9, 2020-21: Davidson (1/24)

That was a rough second half. Was a little worried we we up only five at the half with Grady not scoring. We weren’t turning the ball over and plus pretty good d that first half that’s how we got the lead. Second half we weren’t as good on D and offensively we were a mess. We are fairly limited at t...

Re: 2021 Recruiting

I agree that we could some help with rim protection and some athleticism with size, but I would also like to point out that there are plenty of kids who can jump out of the gym but suck at, you know, basketball. The key is whether or not they can get better. If they have size, can jump out the gym a...

Re: Game 8, 2020-21: at Fordham (1/17)

Nice first half. Meh second half. Tough to maintain intensity when you are up by close to 30 methinks. And Fordham is really bad — how did they beat Dayton? But they didn’t play down to Fordham’s level until the game was well out of reach. Nice to see those 3’s go down in the first half. And they we...

Re: 2021 Recruiting

Matthews is really young. I would like to see what we can do developing a young big. The return on grad transfer bigs isn’t really very good. Space, Baptiste, and Gasperini sounds like a helluva law firm though. Without knowing who is/isn’t returning, it’s hard to know what to want but regardless of...

Re: Game 7, 2020-21: Rhode Island (1/13)

Welp certainly a rough stretch down the stretch but will take the win. Can only imagine what this place would be like if we blew a 15 point lead with nine to go. Don’t want Dibaji taking any more threes but he was really good on defense today. I think between Dibaji, Javohn, and Fernandes they have ...

Re: Game 6, 2020-21: La Salle (1/9)

Nice to play well on both ends with the exception of a couple small spurts. Hopefully they can use this to kickstart some consistent performances — to me that is the important thing...not a 20 point win. Not going to hold my breath for that, but they played well and I don’t think you can really ask ...

Re: Who would you hire as HC for 2021-22

Anyone that talks about themselves in the third person — using what I assume is a nickname no less— is alright with Wolfman Jackson! I no longer care how often you bring up Gus Argenal’s name as a potential coach.

Re: Who would you hire as HC for 2021-22

I don’t think this is a conversation just yet only 4 games into the season but I get why it is. That GMU game was a brutal loss and a brutal way to lose and the lack of progress is very concerning. My only real comment is that if they decide to use a search committee when the time comes to hire ano...

Re: Is MM a winner?

Clearly McCall walked into a tough situation but I think he has been here long enough for the moratorium on his coaching leash is up. Some of his early decisions — particularly with roster management — have certainly not helped speed up any timeline. I am fairly patient with coaches because I don’t ...

Re: Game 5, 2020-21: George Mason (12/30)

Welp, we are just not a very good team. Not sure what we do well out there at either end and we sure as hell can't protect a lead or finish games. We have some talent I think -- not as much as some folks think I don't believe -- but there just doesn't seem to be anything we hang our hat on. On offen...

Re: Game 5, 2020-21: George Mason (12/30)

That was a 12 minute stretch where we scored 6 points. I don't think we will see man-to-man defense the rest of the year.
