    We Will Be Up-Tempo!

    Personally I am excited about this. What do you guys think about going up-tempo with the roster we have?

    Let me throw this out there. Welcome back to the team Chris Colvin. That is a prediction.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: We Will Be Up-Tempo!

    I love this hire! But I could care less about the tempo. Fast, slow, average. Just win!

    People think uptempo=wins

    but that's not really the case

    It will bring back the magic though and fans will enjoy watching it much more

    Re: We Will Be Up-Tempo!

    Its nice to hear that our offense will be simple and the players wont need these...


    Basketball doesnt need to be complicated, there were tons of times with McD i was scratching my head why we wouldnt keep going to the well if something was working.

    Re: We Will Be Up-Tempo!

    up-tempo is the way to go in the Big 12. He's right, we can't grind it out every week, we need easier buckets. And I also liked how he said he knows we can't do that every night- he has really learned a ton from the great coaches hes known.

    No doubt. Coach Mayor said that they are going to keep things simple. They are going to simplify the game. I think CC plays at ISU next season.

    Re: We Will Be Up-Tempo!

    Im thinking Colvin is back. Dendy will thrive in the up-tempo, and I think Ejim and McKnight will as well. Good riddance to Ham, because he would struggle with the up-tempo style of play.

    Re: We Will Be Up-Tempo!

    Thank goodness! I had a problem with not having an up-tempo team, because when the other team would create full-court pressure the cyclones couldn't do anything that was effective against it. The Kansas vs. UNI game reminded me of this a lot. In the last minute when the Jayhawks but the pressure on UNI, the Panthers couldn't handle the ball as they were struggling to get the ball in bounds. This was ISU problem with GMac at the helm.

    I was more excited about him talking about defense.

    Re: We Will Be Up-Tempo!

    Talks to Tim Floyd every 3 weeks. That's way cool.

    Larry Brown, Kevin McCale, Larry Bird all have influenced him.

    How can you go wrong with those kinda mentors?

    Re: We Will Be Up-Tempo!

    My prediction, Boozer will excel in an up-tempo playing style. He already hustles the entire time he is on the floor. Getting everyone around him playing at his speed will give him some help. I think his skill set is more suited for a run and gun style and wouldn't be surprised if he does "bring back the magic," like he has been saying.

    Next year is probably still going to be ugly, but I feel better after hearing him speak. I like what the future holds.

    Re: We Will Be Up-Tempo!

    I like the up tempo, but am more interested in better Defense. We have to play better D first IMO. We have the right guy to teach that.
