    I really like the sounds of this. This is something Mcd never said.

    Let's capsulize last year's approach: "Sit on our butts at midcourt and then hope someone gets a shot off before the clock expires. It was called turtle ball."

    Would love Orr's offense and Floyd's defense!

    Wonder if he ever felt like that teacher in Ferris Bueller?

    Anyone want to get open? Anyone? Anyone?

    It was one of the things I just didn't understand in GM's era (and I risk opening a can of worms with this, but...) -- if the playbook was as expansive as people say, why did it seem like the offense ended up in stand-around-and-wait mode? Is it because players had to think too much?

    What I basically saw the entire four seasons (esp. last 3) was, good movement early in the game, and then eventually the offense was: give the ball to the impact player and watch.

    I don't remember his UNI teams looking like that.

    I hope FH strikes a balance up-tempo initiated by good defense, and the ability to switch the pace when the game flow requires a controlled, half-court approach.

    I think the answer is not to underestimate the effectiveness of Ben Jacobson. UNI still looks smooth and executes. That's the biggest thing that I think I've picked up.

    If Creighton looks effective, then I'm off on this, but my money right now says that UNI was a Jake operation all the way.

    We will see if how much of that was due to our roster. If this team can have some success getting out and getting easy buckets, it would be quite incriminating.
