Re: Off Season Improvements

People can put more weight on whatever they want. To say the first 3/4 holds more weight isn’t more or less true than saying the last 1/4 holds more weight. It’s all in how you want to look at it, spin it. If we are trying to quantify the success of a season, a conference tournament title and an NC...

Re: Off Season Improvements

I just think it's funny how a coach can just forget how to coach for one month. I get that being a fan is a roller coaster of emotions, but the helter-skelter stuff is bonkers. Over the past year, we had guys applauding last year's contract extension, saying stuff like the "program's in good hands"...

Re: 2018-19 DI Hoops Coaching Carousel

I believe Oats when he says it. I don’t believe Mullins, partly because he sounded the least committed to it on that hilarious clip. Mostly because his college career consisted of his team passing it around for 25 seconds and then giving it to Tatum.

Wow. Turned down 17.8M over 8 years guaranteed if true.

Interesting choice that most would not make, but good for him and good for the MVC.

Re: Off Season Improvements

It took a long time to figure out the rotation that ultimately worked so well. I hope the coaches are introspective about that, and not letting the great success in February and March take away from the lessons of December and January.

I don’t think they are going to be a one coach program, but this is a critical time for Belmont, and I think the right hire for the time.

Re: Off Season Improvements

I think I want Childs shooting 4 or 5 3s a game now. Maybe more. Brown shot 5 3’s a game this year. Last player to shoot 5 3’s a game previous was Grier. I think he has to be shooting up around 40% to shoot that often. I think he needs to get himself into the low 30’s to shoot as often as he did th...

Re: Off Season Improvements

Childs shot 50% from the 3-point line over the last 11 games of the season. I think he found the the formula as to when to take the three. I hope he continues to push the limit a little more next season... 3 shots per game would seem to be the right number. He shot 8 3’s in those last 11 games, wel...

Don’t think so..... Then he's not too bright, is he? :lol: Why is that? He shot worse this past season than his freshman season AFTER working on it during the offseason.

Exciting stuff. Walt was underappreciated here IMO, but I also know he has continued to work and has gotten better.

https://twitter.com/GoodmanHoops/status/1111005057158397953 So true. They definitely are not lacking for resources at Alabama. I’m sure Buffalo couldn’t write a buyout that would concern them.

Re: Ongoing opponents thread

Should be an outlier year for the conference as a whole. Agree on expansion. Until proven otherwise, I assume it is a fun rhetorical exercise for us. I don’t see us changing the composition of the conference until events around them demand they do so. Again.

I haven't heard a word about the D.R. incident since BW and DR Reynolds spoke. One of the benefits of not watching or following social media
The university also did a successful job of squashing it by handling it right. Don’t see it being an issue going forward.

Not the least of which is at the free throw line. We made them have to earn it and they did. 2. The way this season end...
