    Crow doesn't taste too bad

    I didn't think Sean would shake his jitters and get his shot to fall all season after watching the scrimmages before the season and non-conference play. His shot still won't be consistently there just by virtue of his mechanics, but he has had a pretty good run in the last several games and I hope it keeps up through the end of the season because we really needed his play Saturday.

    Re: Crow doesn't taste too bad

    I personally think he's a good shooter and may have a couple off games, but he should be pretty consistant from here on out (just my opinion)...but nice post, rarely do you see people on here eat crow or admit their wrongsayings...

    Way to man up. I'm not sure I completely agree that Sean's problem is a mechanical one. There have been some great shooters with much less than perfect mechanics. (see: Reggie Miller)

    IMO, it is more important to have a quick, consistent release.

    i like how he can get up in the air, and alter his shot a lil bit if someone can get in his way.

    Re: Crow doesn't taste too bad

    Does any one know his 3-pt % after he hit his first. I think it is pretty good.

    Re: Crow doesn't taste too bad

    He isn't playing any different than he did during his slump, the shots are just falling now. He came in with a lot of doubters because of his name and his JUCO experience and people have been slowly coming around that last few games. The crowd sure loved him yesterday. Hopefully a little taste of the spotlight will help him get to the 6-8 ppg that we need out of him. Petey has been solid, but we can't get by with him being our only second tier 3 point threat.

    Very true, he had one where he jumped sideways to get away from the defender that went in and out. But it was pretty damn close to going in. I think hes got a good stroke. The confidence he has been building is great to see and will make him that much better.

    Speaking of bad mechanics, how about the all-star Shawn Marion. There has never been a more consistant three point shooter with a worse looking shot.

    Re: Crow doesn't taste too bad

    His mechanics are fine. The shot is all in the release, and his release looks good.

    Re: Crow doesn't taste too bad

    Agree 100% Snowcraig. He gets good elevation and good arm extension, with the ball leaving his hands at a high point to avoid getting blocked. It's a good looking jump shot.

    Re: Crow doesn't taste too bad

    So, for some reason I've always hated the phrase "eat crow." Not sure why, just haven't enjoyed it. I decided to research it's origin and found this:

    The origin of "to eat crow" is ultimately unknown. Almost all authorities cite an incident that took place during a truce in the war of 1812. The story goes that an unarmed British officer encountered an American hunter near the Niagra River, gained control of his musket and thereby forced him to eat the crow he had just shot. The American complied, but when his musket was returned, forced the British officer to do the same.

    The first recorded "in context" citation (where "eating crow" is associated with humiliation) occurred 1877, where it is "to eat boiled crow".

    "Crow McGee", meaning the opposite of the "real McCoy", did not appear until the 20th century and its relationship to "eating crow" cannot be established.


    I thought it was relavent. Random, but relavent

    I believe they said yesterday that he was 8-13 since his first hit.

    How do you prepare crow? What sides go well with crow? And red or white wine?

    I heard that too...pretty sure they said 8-13 since starting 0-26.

    Odd that this shot comes up for discussion, when Haluska took it, I said, Cam Lee should have shot it instead of giving it to Sean. He was wide open, Haluska was not. Confidence, Cam!
