  1. Roby's last block sounded like a volleyball spike. Big thump when he hit it and a second smaller one when it went off Law's face.
  2. He wouldn't be the first Duke assistant to fall on his face in his first chance in the big chair.

    Bracketology 2019

    Technically Penn State would be a Q1 win - they are 69th in the NET rankings and it's a road game, but I get your point. I think if they somehow (miracle, everyone on the other team gets food poisoning?) got to 17-14 and then made the Semi's in the B1G tournament they'd probably be in.

    I don't see a path to the NCAA at this point. They should beat Northwestern on Saturday. They could beat Penn State Tuesday. Any other wins would be big upsets. Iowa would be a little less of an upset with it being Senior night, but even that would only put them at 17-14 (at best) and headed to the NIT.
  5. He might be. Someone will have to guard Roby & the only other option is Oturu.
  6. If Murphy gets in foul trouble maybe NU wins, if not he's going to kill them on the offensive glass.
  7. It's probably more important for Tim Miles than either team. Even if Nebraska loses all their remaining games, this would still be a Q1 game for Minnesota so either a good win or a good loss. If Nebraska wins, it is unlikely to help their post season resume enough to matter. Tim needs all the wins he can get to keep his job.

    Replacements for Miles

    At this point I'd be happy with a coach that ran a cohesive offense.

    Arizona - Federal investigation supposedly has wiretaps of Sean Miller discussing paying players to play Syracuse - Jim Boeheim just looks like he's had enough when you see him on the sideline (of course he's looked that way for a few years) You could probably add almost any Pac-12 team except Washington
  10. Take the best player off any team and they are easier to beat.
  11. If they had reviewed the play like they should have and called a flagrant 2 Fernando would have been tossed. No Fernando for 13 minutes would have given them a better chance to win.
  12. I was shocked to see Nebraska favored by 2 this morning. I know Maryland is young and hasn't played well on the road, but really?

    At this point the only game I see them winning is Northwestern in Lincoln & I'd call that a toss up.

    Tim Miles Hot Seat Watch

    According to ESPN they will only be favored in 1 of their last 10 games & their BPI expects them to win 2.5 more games. Their non-conf SOS is 275 (only Northwestern's was worse in the B1G). Nebraska is expected to win 5.5 (not that I think that will happen) & is favored in 7 of their last 10. I doubt any of the ESPN predictions will happen for either team, but if they do...
  15. Let's hope it was autocorrect

    His seat was very hot at the beginning of the season. If they collapse he will be gone.

    Pitino at Minnesota might not survive the season depending on how their season wraps up.

    So you're saying that it is all on the coach to make the player improve? They player will just improve through osmosis?

    Best movie ever!
  20. Miles has been very shortsighted this year. Had he spent the early part of the season developing a bench, they may have lost a couple of games earlier in the season but been better off when B1G play came or when Copeland got hurt. I understand why he would be totally focused on this year, but there is no reason to hose yourself in the future for a few minor gains this year.

    I agree that the vast majority of players have not improved significantly under Miles. I will put out there that for ANY player to improve it is on him/her to take the time. The coach should give suggestions on how & what to work on, but the player has to put in the time. There are too many players that only want to work on their strengths and not become a more complete player.

    I'm not talking about numbers. I'm basing it on observation. As a freshman, he played defense with his hands and picked up fouls. As a senior he played defense with his feet and avoided fouls (a lesson Roby could stand to learn). I'm sure you will come back with some stat showing he fouled more per 40 minutes, but he also guarded better players as a senior. I'm a math guy (accounting degree, math minor), but you can find stats to prove just about anything.

    Tim Miles Hot Seat Watch

    1986 was the FIRST time they made the tournament (Moe Iba was coach). They made the tournament in 1991-94 & 1998. Since you majored in Basketball, I will assume that you don't know those years are all after 1986.
  24. Thor looks pretty awkward at times, but I don't think he's a bad player. He has a knack for the ball & a high basketball IQ. He just needs more PT and to work on his jump shot. I think some of the appearance of awkwardness is because he's a southpaw and they all look a little awkward to me because it's not what you see from most players. There was a nice segment on him on the Tim Miles coach's show this week (maybe last week).

    So shooting percentage is the only way to improve? He was a much better defender & rebounder by his senior year.
