    This is Going to be a Fun Year for Men's BBall

    1. The new players look great. What multi skilled players that we have not had in such abundance.

    2. We will have a long bench. The Coach loves to substitute and the pace will not drop off. When one player has a bad night, we have real substitutes.

    3. Dendy is the Energizer Bunny.

    4. The non confernece season should be a blast as people try to make steals, push the ball, dunk, fire away.

    5. Hilton Magic will be back as the game pace will be fast.

    6. Recruiting should continue doing well.

    7. It is about time, it is our time, it is NCAA time.

    8. We have so many back court people we do not know what to do with them.

    9. Iowa Hawkeyes will be run out of the court in our game. Watch out UNI and Drake, here we come.


    CFH HMagic bball season next year.
    Let my Fred's Four Horsemen ride: Georges, Hogue, Nader, and McKay.

    I agree, it should be a fun year. I will say though that Hilton Magic shouldn't be dependent on the pace. Winning is what matters, I've had some really fun times at Hilton during the slow paced years of Floyd and Eustachy.

    One only needs to look at Iowa's exhibition opener to see that we should be better than Iowa this year. They were excited about about a 20 point win where they managed to score 75 points.

    Not to argue that we shouldn't blow Iowa away this year but 20 point wins and 75 points is actually pretty good w/the type of basketball Lickliter (sp) likes his teams to play. Very rarely will you see a team coached by him score 80 or more points. He's about playing solid D and slowing the tempo on O so there are less chances to score a lot of points.

    I can't wait to see if Coach Mac sticks with the way he wanted the guys to play on Saturday. He was imploring them to press and run, and on the postgame show said that he's comfortable playing 11 guys right now. That's a big rotation, but he alluded to wanting to wear the other team down.

    We'll see if this is the case against better opposition.

    I don't know about that. It doesn't get any better than Pembrooke, buddy.

    I think any honest appraisal of our schedule will show that there isn't a single team on there any tougher than UNC-Pembrooke, in terms of athleticism, depth, and shooting ability.

    I can't do it. That hurt my own brain.

    This makes it sound like McDermott has thrown his vaunted "system" on the scrap heap and has gone the way of Nolan Richardson ala "40 minutes of hell". Is that what I am to understand?



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Ummmm no. Glad you can make one post about McDermott with throwing an unnecessary jab in there though...oh wait.

    McDermott wants his team to run and get points in transition because he has the athletes to do it. He also has them pressuring on defense as opposed to playing pack it in that we've seen the last few years. This team is not however going to pressure you from baseline to baseline for 40 minutes. And there will still be plenty of set plays and lots of drawn up inbounds plays.

    You are such a drama queen. And so cute!

    It probably means that we are going to run more, ramp up the defensive on-ball pressure, and adapt the gameplan to the opponent.

    I'm sure you can find some problem with McDermott doing that. :rollseyes:

    This guy was the stunt double for Ving Rhames in Pulp Fiction...and that's why he's so angry, right?
