    1000 shots a day. Nice.


    The Republicans and Democrats fighting over who should pay for the deficit, is like two drunks on the Titanic arguing over who should pay the bar tab.

    This I like; the Jake Sullivan program.

    This I don't like: "Easy". Nothing is that easy in the Big 12. You better be ready for a dog fight every day. <tips cap to Mike Nurse>

    I might be way off, but I feel like under Coach Fred, we will be good shooting teams. He can bring in avg. to below avg. shooting "athletes," and within a few years have above average shooters.

    I expect that at any one time, we will have 4 to 5 players on the floor who can drain a jump shot if left open. That was definitely not the case under the previosu regime, where only 1 or 2 players were able and allowed to make a jumper.

    And every small guard must be equipped with a jimmy to keep the defense honest.
    Say what?

    Velo- I love the "easy." It sounds to me that he puts in the hard work and has the right attitude. The difference between him and stinson's "it's just another gym" quote, is just that he hasn't played Kansas yet.

    Yes, one of my favorites. I get your point. I just get concerned that a freshman will walk in and think it will be a cake walk. I hope you are right.

    +1 for the Mel quote, by the way.

    Yeah, I agree. It's not like the CPR football attitude, but basketball's a different sport. I think that Freddy has installed about as good of a culture as you can have in college MBB.
