    Bench Ejim for OU

    Let me preface this by saying that I think he will be a very good player in a couple years.

    But that doesn't change the fact that he's just unbelievably bad right now on both ends of the court. His ceiling is much higher than he's showing us right now. Fred needs to send a message to someone. This was a pathetic loss. Completely pathetic. This team played KU within 5.

    I'm afraid we won't recover from the OSU game. Tonight was worse than Saturday by a LONG shot. It looks like these guys have folded up shop and mailed it in. A message needs to be sent.

    Yeah, let's play with 6 people!!! Way to "send a message" by hurting the rest of your team!

    Godfrey>>>>>Ejim right now but don't bench bench him. Have Godfrey start and bring Ejim off the bench.

    Glad Freddie is the coach and not some overly emotional nimrod.

    Re: Bench Ejim for OU

    I wouldn't mind seeing one of the football walkons get a look. Our rebounding is embarrassing at times. Maybe someone with some strength can body someone up in the paint. We look like a 7th grade girls basketball team on the glass for stretches.

    Re: Bench Ejim for OU

    I'm fine with him starting but to have him out there for 30+ minutes is ridiculous. Not only has he hit the freshman wall but he is a detriment to the team right now.

    He is a good player and will snap out of the funk...but until he does, give Godfrey the extra minutes.

    Re: Bench Ejim for OU

    BTW, by "bench" I mean "not start". Not "not play".

    Mods, feel free to change the thread title.

    Ejim should play, but you have to make some kind of statement to the team. He's been awful at both ends lately. They have to get the message that tonight's effort is unacceptable.

    Re: Bench Ejim for OU

    Ejim has been virtually non existent since conference started. Godfrey has improved greatly since conference and right now he is by far a better player. He should be starting.

    Re: Bench Ejim for OU

    Godfrey deserves a chance to start with the way Ejim has been playing. Hopefully Ejim will be able to play at the 3 spot in the future.

    Are you serious? Did you watch the Okie State game? Ejim single-handedly cost us that game...that is the definition of hurting the team.

    I have such a history of starting angry, irrational post game threads.

    Re: Bench Ejim for OU

    Yeah, well, JVB sucks major *** on both ends when he isn't hitting shots. Scottie sucked tonight. Godfrey hustles but he doesn't do anything outstanding.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Godfrey hit the wall, than stepped back and crashed through it.
