    Gmac and Jacobson

    For those who understand (not me) how similar are UNI and our offenses? They look close to me. UNI just makes the shots.

    Re: Gmac and Jacobson

    You know, I just was thinking the same thing. VERY similar. They just have more wins than us, and tend to make shots.

    Re: Gmac and Jacobson

    That offense works perfectly when the opponent is either not talented or not taking you seriously.

    Re: Gmac and Jacobson

    I just read this as the announcer said "UNI has over 100 plays in their playbook"

    Re: Gmac and Jacobson

    I like their ball movement better than ours.

    Re: Gmac and Jacobson

    It doesn't seem like UNI point guards have to do as much dribbling as ours.

    Re: Gmac and Jacobson

    apparently we're both using the same 2 million page playbook according to the announcers

    Re: Gmac and Jacobson

    They're the oppposite, Jacobsons team runs an offense, plays great defense, makes free throws and wins. Our teams do none of that under McDermott.

    Re: Gmac and Jacobson

    UNI keeps its players around for more than 1 or 2 seasons....

    Have we thought about just becoming a JUCO BB school ourselves?

    Re: Gmac and Jacobson

    UNI has better guards than we have and the players have roles and understand and accept their roles... UNI does not force shots on offense...like CB would.

    Re: Gmac and Jacobson

    UNI does not have DG - That is the big difference. He is not there to stop all ball movement and just dribble out the shot clock.

    Re: Gmac and Jacobson

    Offenses are identical pretty much. They even ran that same screen lob play GMac runs all the time.
