I'll have what you're having...and make it a double!!!!!! Heck...make it a banked in 3.
ISU is going to have to play exceptional on the offensive end to win this game. They need to drain a lot of threes.
I also don't want to pay for it lol.
It's really convenient on my PlayStation. I can watch basically everything worth watching on there.
If we accept the premise that Baylor's athletic department actually was punished in a meaningful way for running a rape ring, they probably would be national champions in all major sports this year without that heavy burden.
Of course the the reality is running a lawless crime syndicate always gives them a boost.
We all know ISU's recent history in Waco and is isn't good and. At least, this time CF won't melt down if ISU loses as they arn't the better team this year.
I'll be tuned in a rooting for our Cyclones but have to be realistic that this is a major task to win against this BU squad tonight. I won't just concede a loss especially in this year of CBB. Tyrese is still the best player on the court and if the team is hitting 3's an upset can happen.
I just want to see continued growth of the young players and use of the lineup and roster rotations. Prohm can still get this team better in a loss in the road and confidence in Tre's shooting and Lewis consistency.
You don't come around here much, do you?
Now why would you think something crazy like that??
Hoping for a 2017 @ KU game type miracle. That team was playing some pretty poor basketball going into that game and used that game to really springboard them into the last 1/2 of conference play. That team also had 4 NBA players on it, but whatever.
Hoping for something similar.
Thanks Rulzzz! GO STATE!! Beat the Bears!!!
Baylor is loaded but Vital vs MJ is going to be a bloodbath. Baylor forces you to play small bc Vital is such a tough match up, their offense down the stretch against KU was isolating he and Gillespie and dissecting their bigs with the two man game. When KU went small, they just physically overwhelmed them. Vital isn't their best player but he's probably their most important. He gives them the versatility to match up with any lineup, keeping him in check is the key to slowing them down. That's more than keeping him off the scoreboard, its rebounds, steals, assists etc...he is their x factor. It's a long shot to win but if he is productive, it's basically impossible.
I think the goal for tonight is to not get blown out. Just be competitive. I think the rest of this season will be much more pleasant for this team if they can achieve some semblance of consistency as opposed to oscillating between horrendous and above average.
This Southern Baptist University should have been kicked out of the B12. They have a sold history of criminal behavior. I ALWAYS want to see them lose!
9% win expectation
Do we do much of anything better than them?
-- we are not too far behind in offensive efficiency (#34 versus #23)
-- our effective field goal % is higher (52.0% to 50.2%)
-- turn the ball over less
They are just so much better than us defensively, are likely to kill us on the boards, and a good three-shooting team (36.2%) compared to us (32.2%).
We are going to have to hit a lot of difficult shots tonight, and we are not likely to have many second chances on the boards. We are going to hope to slow them down on defense and not let them kill us with offensive rebounds.
This game is going to lean heavily on George. He needs to do what he can to shore up our defense, and it is going to be like thunderdome under the hoop for him.
If we're doing unlikely predictions -- I'm all for it! -- here's mine: Solomon gets hot from 3-point land, which opens things up inside for Bolton to dominate.
While the game is going on should I rake my lawn or take a bath in bourbon. Talk amongst yourselves.
ISU needs to mitigate giving up those big scoring runs to the opponents, which are fueled by unnecessary quick 3pt shots.
To be fair I would probably say this team has 2-3 NBA players in Tyrese, Bolton, and Conditt. Might be a stretch but still, there is potential NBA talent.
I was at the game in the Phog when those guys won. One of the best shooting performances in the second half I’ve ever seen. Burton couldn’t miss.
I've already got my meltdown script.
Run an offense!
Put someone from the bench in!
Fire all the coaches!
See if Erik starts another coach buying out prohms contract thread to coach here and totally agree
Things are so unpredictable these days in college basketball. Look, Clemson beats Duke last night. A lot of upsets already this year of which we were involved in, not for the good end though.
I will stick with my motto, "Any team can get beat on any given day." I hope that today Baylor is that team! Let's go State!!
