    Colvin's slow walk

    Did anyone notice Colvin's slow walk off the court towards the end of the game? Mac subbed him in for the crucial play where we kept A&M from inbounding the ball (5 second call). Then, once we got the 5 second call, Mac subbed in Ham (I think) and took Colvin out. Only thing was, Colvin walked very, very slow off the court towards the bench. He looked like Lou Pinella heading to the mound. I could just see it in his body language that he felt like saying "you have got to be kidding me."

    To me, his mannerisms suggest he has no respect left for the decisions of the staff.

    Do you?


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    The kid obviously has an attitude, but he's got a swagger and confidence about him which could be essential to success in the future. I'd still hate to see him leave, regardless of who's coaching.

    Re: Colvin's slow walk

    Maybe he walked Slow to give the coach more time to set up his inbounds play? I didn't see it, but that would also make sense. Obviously player defections are a real issue based on past but I don't think it makes any sense to speculate about current players doing the same. The slow walk, the facebook, etc, etc.

    It clearly worked, cuz that inbounds play was a thing of beauty.

    Re: Colvin's slow walk

    I understand your point but if I looked hard enough I could find body language indications from Mac that he is preparing to pose for Playgirl.

    I just think we are looking way to hard for negatives. We don't have to do that. There are enough just begging for our attention.

    Re: Colvin's slow walk

    Colvin was in there because he is quick and had a better shot at stealing the ball than Ham. Ham went back in to score and rebound. At least he did one thing well at the end.

    I think you may not want to do that.

    Re: Colvin's slow walk

    And we want players that are dying to come out of the game at crunch time?

    I doubt there's a single thing to the OPs idea, but it's good that there are new ridiculous threads tonight. Yippee!

    Obviously, you weren't watching him earlier in the game. On multiple occasions, when Mac called him over when he was at the other end of the floor, he continually ran over to him faster than anybody else on the team ever does.

    I'm sure he was bummed for getting taken out - who wouldn't be? But remember, Last time, (okie state) Mac left him in and he threw the ball between Craig's feet.

    I've been watching him over the last several games, and it appears he is beginning to get tight with Mac. They both know Chris is an important part of the future of our program.

    To sum it up, you're crazy.

    Regarding something similar. When we went down one of our largest deficits and Mac called TO, I noticed something encouraging. Our team did not lolly gag over to the bench. Each and every one ran over there. I thought that was a positive sign.

    These guys have a lot of fight in them now. We all wish they had it sooner, when we had more players and before the losses mounted, but they sure have it now.

    I still think this team wins 4-5 more conference games to this point with JVB and Boozer. Staiger is tough because he could give up or score 30 on a given night.
