    They've been bad all throughout practice according to Prohm. Probably just this team.

    lard was nowhere near ready emotionally as a 21 year old after being babysat for two years. I can’t imagine what he would have been like as a true freshman.

    leech was a star recruit before he got hurt. The risk of giving him a year to get stronger and there are enough good players on the roster now that he can have that time.

    Prognostications from reading a single scrimmage box score are the sports equivalent of this:

    The unfortunate thing is that Lard at 21 was very much like Lard as a true freshman.

    It’s been awhile and a major injury since Leech was a star recruit, so it’s hard to know what his future holds. Without the redshirt he’s likely not playing much anyways. The redshirt is more about 4 years from now.

    There better be an uptick in the performance against whisky or there will be hell to pay.

    What's the record for the earliest met-down thread for a basketball team? Two weeks before the season even starts has to be up there.

    This has to be it. I don't think last year's losses in the scrimmages evoked such a weird response by so many.

    I'm not panicking at all right now.

    I'm just saying that you can't be a terrible shooting team and have success. It doesn't work that way.

    I'm still hopeful we will end up being a good enough shooting team.

    This thread is so meta.

    Sure, there are a few inarticulate ******** making the same unfounded criticisms they always do, but I think most reputable posters on here realize this is a scrimmage, super early, and this team is likely to be a work-in-progress to begin the season.

    We seem to want to freak out about a freak out that is not happening.

    It’s entertaining to watch the usual call-out culture fans race to see who can first meltdown over meltdowns.

    What is the full story with Leech?

    - I know he had the horrific injury, but didn't he play pretty well in Cap City?
    - Did he take a leave from the team this summer? Is there more to this than I recall?

    Well they may win the unofficial title of meaningless scrimmage champion. Can't ever take that away from them!

    Not sure why CSP's past history at ISU isn't actually celebrated as a harbinger of future success.

    And I'm saying you can't be 6'4" and call yourself a midget.
