    Godfrey to start tonight

    Just heard that Calvin Godfrey will replace Jamie Vanderbeken in tonight's starting lineup.

    Re: Godfrey to start tonight

    Way to squash my previous prediction that there is no way a guy coming off suspension will get the start. Godfrey must really have impressed CFH through his suspension.

    Good chance for him to get some experience.

    Re: Godfrey to start tonight

    I'm excited to see him hit the floor again, and I'm really hopeful that the suspension will be good for him (and the team) in the long run. I am a bit surprised that he is starting first game out of the suspension, but the staff knows much more regarding the details of it than we do, so I'll trust their judgment.

    I would be more concerned with starting Godfrey coming off a suspension if it was a Colvin type situation where the player was having issues with teammates or coaches. But from what I remember about his suspension it had something to do with being out past curfew or in a bar or something like that. Ideally, I don't think you would like to start him, but in the situation we are I don't mind it.

    Not to be Debby Downer, but I do not think we have too many choices.

    I agree I don't see a problem and given the circumstances I understand fully. Just from Hoiberg's stance on stuff I didn't see it happening I just expected him to hit the floor early.

    Excited to see him back on the court. Hope he can stay out of foul trouble because we will need him to be on the floor!

    Re: Godfrey to start tonight

    This is good news. I feel like JR would have been too anxious out there and picked up 2 really quick fouls. Hopefully Calvin doesn't do something similar.

    Re: Godfrey to start tonight

    I've never understood the 'can't start after a suspension' thought. His suspension was three games, not three games and one half. He has served his time.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    Re: Godfrey to start tonight

    Its typically your suspension plus if your a starter you lose that gig for minimum one game afterwards. I think that is an unwritten Sports rule, not a half just the start.

    Another important factor is that Godfrey is currently ahead of JR in terms of stamina to play extended minutes. Fred mentioned in his Monday PC that JR is making progress in terms of how many minutes that he can handle, but that his time on the court still has to be managed for him to be effective.

    Holy crap, that's one small lineup.

    He broke a team rule, he didn't rape or murder anybody. I'm guessing Fred came down hard with the suspension because we have a number of guys who are likely on a very short leash and needs to be consistent (remember most our transfers aren't here because they just loved Ames so much they decided to leave their old schools), but that there aren't any hard feelings going forward.

    Plus Railey is out of shape. Unless they are going to give one of the football players a start I don't think Hoiberg had many other options.

    Re: Godfrey to start tonight

    Well I would hope if it were Murder or Rape he would no longer be associated with the team. Like I have stated many times it is very common to almost an unwritten rule a guy coming off suspension does not start the following game. There are still options in Bubu, Railey, and even Mcknight (if only for a minute).
