Manny Watkins

How about the job Manny is doing calling the game?
He sounds like he's been doing it for years.

Re: Wow! what an a$$ kicking.

To me, the idea of Gafford getting outplayed is nothing new--not a revelation. The kid has zero ability to establish himself in the post. I don't even mean post moves--and those aren't all that wonderful, either; I mean he literally gets pushed around by 6' 4" guys when trying to establish himself. ...

Re: Just not a very good basketball team right now..

Beard is in there because he's one of the few guys who actually runs the system in the half court. It's the same thing with Trey Thompson. Both of them are not extremely talented guys, but they do run the system. They are far from bums. Truth be told: they would be EXCELLENT guys to lead a second te...

Re: DC

With another A&M man coming in Cooper, it seems likely that it's still Chavis.

The only problem is that we're losing precious time here with recruits.

Re: Chavis .. neg comments

There's no doubt that Chavis knows what he's doing. And, he's aggressive. That's something that we've been harping on for so long now. Just give us someone who isn't afraid to let the kids run now and then. If it is Chavis, I'm going to be plenty happy, because that is a definite upgrade. At the end...

Re: DC

It's kinda' sad to say this, but I'd be happy if he brings the defense up to the level of mediocrity.

Re: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly Minnesota Game

I'm excited. The depth is really showing up this year. When Gafford went down I had a bad feeling but Cook and Thompson filled in nicely and we would have won without him returning. This is our deepest team in a while and Mike is rotating in such a way that the other team has trouble cutting the le...

Re: Chad Morris [Update]

I have to admit: Morris and Venables coming together would be, in my opinion, probably the best hire of this entire coaching carousel. Yeas, Chip Kelly at UCLA will still be successful and the sexier name, but Morris and Venables would be just as impressive of a hire to me.

Re: Leverage

We are fast becoming the school to call for getting coaches raises. I fully expect to hear that Kirby Smart, Urban Meyer, Dabo Swinney, and Lincoln Riley have entered their names as prospective candidates for head coach on the Hill. Not Nick Saban, however. Saban doesn't negotiate raises--he simply ...

Re: Gus Bus

I rarely read Wally Hall, but his headlines the last couple of days have almost made me take a look. Wally penned an "open letter" to Gus Malzahn yesterday and pleaded with him to return to Arkansas and claimed the fan base was (mostly) united on the suggestion. Hall seemed to tap the breaks on tha...
