    How Bizzare

    is it the Jiri is probably our best player right now. Right down to posting people up, getting rebounds, and guarding the other teams center. I thought he was getting shippped out of ISU a few games ago. Now the guy looks great. Meanwhile Mike Taylor just dribbled the ball off his foot after going flying down the lane out of control. Weird

    Re: How Bizzare

    Well before Jiri came on I felt Wesley was our best all-around player. He seems to be gravitating away from where he fits best so it's hard not to say Jiri is playing the best for ISU in the past week for sure - if not couple weeks.

    Hats off to him.

    Re: How Bizzare

    It was a shift in JIRI'S attitude, he finally started accepting coaching, and he's being rewarded for it.

    His attitude for the first 5-6 games he was back was sullen, moody, disinterested and he played that way. You rememeber all of the looks that McDermott gave him as he pulled him from the game, they could have boiled cheese.

    But as often happens in these cases, one night he listened, maybe in spite of himself, and he was rewarded with playing time, and had a good game. He hasn't stopped since the NDSU game.

    The problem that I had with him before was his attitude, he wasn't coachable.

    Re: How Bizzare

    What a disappointment! I thought from the title of the thread that somebody had a link to the classic OMC song "How Bizzare".

    At any rate, I too am very pleased with the way Jiri has been playing. Even when his numbers aren't outstanding I still smile seeing him play his butt off and realizing how far he has come in such a short time (attitude-wise). I also think many of you are way overanalyzing how Wesley is "heading in the wrong direction". For the love, the guy just had his "worst game" in forever against KSU and still ended up with 9 points and 7 boards. What more do you want from an unheralded freshman? If 9 and 7 are going to be the bad nights, I'll take those from anybody. Sure he shoots 3's once in a while, but I'm ok with the shot selection since he's been doing that all year and has shown himself capable of knocking them down. How is it worse that he takes them now that we have somebody (Jiri) showing themselves to be a threat underneath when before we had no low-post presence?

    Yeah, nobody's shots were going in against KSU, except for Jiri's near the basket.
    I tell you what, we NEED to get the ball to Jiri more. He was unstoppable against KSU! He coulda had 30 points if we fed him the ball more! When stuff is working, it's up to the other team to stop it, not us.

    Re: How Bizzare

    Jiri's play has been exceptional the last few games. Let's hope he keeps it up, especially with the two tough road games we have up next.

    Exactly that is one thing that we need to grasp, when someone has the hot hand or something is working keep getting them the ball until they can be stopped. Instead we have Mike Taylor doing the old Chuck and Pray.

    Doc Sadler says his new Nebrska rule is the ball has to touch Alex Mareks hands before anyone else can shoot a three. Now that is being blunt to your guards. Can McD do the same?
