    It appears Solo got 6 fouls in this game, so it's not like they actually follow the real rules in a super secret scrimmage. ;)

    On a positive, If we can shoot FT's like that all year we will win a lot of games at the stripe!

    A head scratcher for me is we are pretty much on board with our players that CSP had brought in and then often times we hear they're struggling to shoot the ball. Got to be able to score to win the game! Anyway excited for the season but plenty of football left.

    i love these scrimmages. no need to play some no name exhibition and win by 20. let's play legit P5 size/talent and get humbled and get to work. wisconsin might beat us by 20. but we'll be ready when we go to oregon state and play for real.

    Over an October scrimmage. Might have to consider a hiatus from here during hoops season.

    The math of the redshirt rule works out whether you use it as a freshman or as a transfer sit-out. Either way you retain eligibility for a year you weren't going to play. Problem with waiting to use it in case of transfer is that you might not want to transfer... and then you've just sacrificed a year of eligibility for 20 mop-up minutes your freshman year.

    i was talking about this with a buddy of mine.

    If this years team plays for each other, and tries their asses off to defend and win 50/50 balls, they have a chance to be decent.

    last year’s team had toughness moments, you don’t win in Lubbock without being tough, but they also were very fragile. There really wasn’t a leader in the group. Marial never had to be that at Virginia.

    mike tried to assume the role after the horse had left the barn, but I don’t think he was respected by the guys he needed to be respected by.

    I think this team is going into the season with at least 3 guys that are respected by everyone, and that includes mike this year. But tyrese and Solomon are also guys that have people’s attention too.

    it’s gonna be bad. The crew is pissed Campbell is doing what Campbell does.

    they’re going to have a lot of pent up anger to unleash on prohm.

    but at least you know the level of basketball knowledge you’re dealing with when they post.

    I am still kind of perplexed @Tornado man hasn't been here to let people know how much more knowledge our coaches have than the people here being stupid.

    Good question and point. The answer is yes on aid after four years. We have athletes on scholarships who no longer have eligibility. Not on the rosters obviously. Heard this directly from the AD this summer.

    Obviously this isn't an endless commitment but if a guy has made good progress and needs a semester or so to complete a degree we support them.

    Naz is an example of a guy that wasn’t ready to contribute as a freshman for many reasons, but was a major factor as soon as his second year.
    Lard is an interesting case. Physically he probably could have contributed in the spring of 2017, but apparently the staff felt needed to redshirt.

    Leech seems like he’s another exception, but guys that aren’t close to contributing as freshman also have a high correlation to guys that are recruited over. It’s not that they couldn’t develop into major contributors in a couple years, but that we often can’t afford to wait.

    Solo gets 6 during the year, too -- gives a quick, angry stare to the refs at number 5 and they'll decide to leave him in.

    I've always believed in recruiting only guys that can shoot. Fred seemed to do that pretty well. He'd have 5 guys on the court that could all shoot from deep. That's really hard to defend.

    If you can't put the ball in the basket, you're in deep trouble. I haven't been very impressed with Nixon at all from everything I've heard and seen. I guess he's supposed to be a really good defender, but IMO you need to bring more to the table than just that. He didn't even shoot well in the Cap City League.

    Like any team, on nights we shoot well, we'll win, and nights we don't, we'll lose. Pretty simple. You just better hope you're a good enough shooting team to have a lot more good shooting nights than poor shooting ones. Thus far, this team doesn't seem to be full of many good shooters. At the open practice everyone said they shot horribly too.

    And btw... Minny is picked to finish about 10th or 11th in the B1G this season... they are not supposed to be very good at all.

    Hey, the Star Tribune did have a couple of paragraphs on the scrimmage in this mornings paper. On page 15 of the sports section. ;)

    And, yeah, it's still a real live newspaper with a 16 page sports section on Sunday with only two ads (one full pager for the Timberwolves and one small biz ad).

    I see this season starting similarly to the 17-18 season. Lose a few discouraging ones early but for the most part win the ones we’re supposed to and lose the ones we’re supposed to. Then if we’re lucky we can avoid the injury bug and this team can elevate its game enough to make the tourney, instead of falling into complete chaos.

    Well at least if we’re bad, you will be happy. The last three weeks of football has had to be tough for you.

    Another thing to take out of this: how often did we see Jacobson and Halliburton go 2-10 on threes last year? Not often, if ever. This was a historically bad shooting game.
