    I have never looked at tm that way. Honestly I think hes the best rival fan we have on this board. Seems pretty fair to me. His post makes sense as well.

    Books are just a bunch of words. Music? It's just a bunch of notes! Movies are nothing but a bunch of pictures shown at high speeds. And stats? Yes, stats are just numbers. Nobody remembers that Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in a game once...what they remember is the way he looked while playing in that game. Who needs stats?

    So to recap, disregard any actual quantitative evidence of how players perform; instead, just pay attention to clonedud's expert assessment of players' attitudes derived from watching games on his couch.

    I agree, not saying he isn't a fair poster most of the time. Just assuming he's got to be kicking back and enjoying this just a little bit. The factual part remains that he admittedly didn't watch the game and is a fan of a team that generally despises us.

    Re: Does lucious or clyburn care

    I think this team still has a chance to make the tourney... I'm not jumping off the cliff like many others.

    That being said, Lucious drives me nuts to watch. He's careless with the ball and defends about 25% of the time. He never takes command of the team like a senior PG should. He does hit some great/tough shots and he does things with the ball sometimes that are IMPRESSIVE, but his wreckless play just drives me crazy.

    And someone PLEASE teach Percy Gibson how to pass the ball out of the post when he's double teamed... ugh...

    Ive seen his posts on HN, he goes to bat for us frequently. Hell they sometimes treat him as a troll over there for doing it. Trust me I feel icky for defending a hawk fan, but fair is fair. Plus he pays me on the side for good pub. Wait, I should have left that part out.

    If we're calling out players, the two in the thread title wouldn't be my first two.

    My apologies. I was going off of ESPN's stats, which have been updated. When I made that post, it said he had 4 TO and was 4-11 from the floor. Now it says 3 TO and 4-12.

    I've gone on the record, both here and on HN, as a fan of both teams on all but a handful of calendar dates (one in September, three in December).

    But like I said, I'm not basing my opinion of Lucious off of just last night's game. I've never been a believer in him. Honestly, if he'd never made that buzzer beater in the NCAA tourney, nobody would know who he was.

    Actually, Marble is shooting 36.8%, Lucious is at 36.2%.

    But, even if that weren't the case; do you really want to use Iowa's pathetic 3-point shooting as any kind of positive standard? Marble's not a good 3-point shooter, either. His % is beefed up by the UNI and South Carolina State games, when he went a combined 10-17.

    Re: Does lucious or clyburn care

    I don't know why anyone isn't including McGee in their wrath. In 24 mins, he went 2-10 with 1 rebound and 1 assist, and IMO had the worst shot selection of the night. Frankly, the whole team played terrible, but Clyburn probably played the best out of any of them.

    Oh well. One bad loss does not derail a season. Beat KSU, which is very possible, and everything will be fine.

    I didn't see tonight's game, but looking at the stats, it was a pretty typical night out for Lucious. 11 points, yes. But on 4-11 shooting, with 2 assists and 4 TO.

    That's who he was in East Lansing, and that's who he is now. He's got talent, and he will always show flashes; just enough to keep people hooked on him. But he's never been able to find consistency in his game.
    This. A million times this. His caring is not the issue.

    Re: Does lucious or clyburn care

    Next game Clyburn will furrow his eyebrows just to show you how much he cares.
    What athlete doesn't care? Are you kidding me? Just because he stays calm and keeps his emotions internal you hate on him. Let's over think everything.

    Re: Does lucious or clyburn care

    I have posted in the past that Lucious is a frustrating player to follow. The problem is he is so talented but he's not consistent. I would give him a pass for last nights game. I thought I heard he was sick, I'm assuming the flu, and the team didn't even know if he would play. I think it's admiral that he did play especially if it was the flu because that just drains your energy. Maybe if Bubu was going to play they would have sat KL down for the game. Who knows what would have happened if he didn't play but he was trying to help the team. The one thing that comes out of the loss is now all the players and coaches know it's up to them if they want to make the tournament. They know now that they have to come out every game with a sense of urgency. This might be the time the true character of this team shows through and maybe will suprise everyone. I wouldn't write this team off just yet.
