    Really think they should be the couches, but I’m just old.

    Wouldn’t that be redundant?

    Davenport is in Iowa. Michigan needs to stop stealing our cities.

    When Mamoo died we were down in Clarksdale and my mother asked "do you think anyone would want the davenport?"

    My response was "what the hell is a davenport?" Now I know.

    Context on this team:

    17-14 last year (Division II). Played an exhibition last year against Illinois State and lost by 26. Illinois State finished 216 in Pom.

    Another 10 point win and we may wanna readjust expectations. But I think this will be over quickly.

    Also lost their two best players from last year.

    This team is likely very, very, very bad.

    Thad indicated he was not happy with the play on Saturday (rightfully so). This will be a good indication of how well this team responds.

    Yeah, think they were dealing with some nerves the other night and hopefully they shook those off. Heard that after the game even the players were like “who was THAT team”

    If we don't Perform better at the Free Throw Line, it isn't going to matter. We don't shoot the ball well enough from the field, to not make our Free Throws! I can't stress it enough...

    Otherwise, Lukosius is the only guy allowed to shoot free throws.

    Need to get a big lead to help determine whether Turnbull should play or be redshirted. The decision will ultimately be up to the player, but some playing time (or lack their of) would help aid that decision

    We'll see how things go tonight, but the 1st exhibition and Eurotrip weren't awe-inspiring. Doesn't help that they're seemingly always missing key contributors, but still just seems like they've got some nice individual pieces that haven't figured out how to play together yet.

    Correct.

    The thing about this year is this: we know Thad can coach. You don’t have 15 straight years of success unless you know how to coach.

    If the team stinks, we just have worse players than we realize. And maybe we do. But I’m hoping it may be one of those years where things just gradually get better all year as the players and schemes start to mesh. You just hope it’s not so bad in November and December that you’re buried.
