    Interesting stuff. I can assure you that Fred will try to push Shabazz to the right, and he will live with the long jumpers. If you hit them, we will shake your hand and congratulate you.

    Apparently we just need to find a way to force him right.

    Against a lot of teams, yes, against you guys? no. Bazz goes cold from here on out and were done.

    Someone needs to tweet the Shabazz shot chart to Coach A.

    That's actually a fair point. Pitt and Wisco are perrenial overrated ken pom teams because of their high efficiency low number of possessions.

    It makes sense that ISU would be penalized for playing up tempo. One of the things I've always wanted to see out of ken pom was a measure of efficiency variability across tempo styles. How well can you change your style to fit the need so to speak.

    If your coaching staff doesn't have it already I'd be concerned.

    Not exactly what you're talking about, but I think that inexplicable disaster at WVU is the only game where we haven't scored over 70, so in general we seem to do a decent job of forcing things closer to the kind of game/pace we want to play.

    Heading off for a bit. Be back later to mix it up with you laid back country folk.

    I think it is the Baylor game we didn't score 70 in.

    They do. Whatever Napier likes he is going to have a hard time finding it open on Friday night.

    Agreed. Hogue is an energy guy and I would bet he will be playing with the most energy we have seen this season in these next 2 games.

    Our coaches are terrible at game planning. Excel only at looking dreamy.

    Congrats man, I think you are the biggest homer on this board. And I respect that about you. You are very intense.
