  1. No not a lot to be honest. If you only care about UB stuff its probably not worth it. I saw a Marquette fan asking an editor on Twitter why they got less articles and he said it basically comes down to pageviews and they're always monitoring it, maybe if this one gets enough views/people joining from it they reassess, but as of now there's not a ton of UB content.
  2. If you have access to your .edu email it's only $2.49 a month. They have some good content.
  3. Two other schedule things I took from the article: 1. They're still looking for one more game so we may not get the full schedule for a while. 2. Specifying Dartmouth is the home opener leads me to believe we're on the road for the season opener. The past few years we've pretty much only played high major and Big 4 games on the road in non-con, so I'd think we're either opening at Niagara or with a big game. Hopefully the latter since we haven't gotten Niagara at home since 2014.
  4. He's blown up since UB offered so I don't really expect much but we'll find out if we made the cut tonight
  5. It's gotta be in his head, you don't shoot better from 3 (roughly at the national average too) than from the FT line with a busted shot. I'd almost rather that isn't his main focus all summer. I find when I golf a lot and focus on my swing mechanics too much I play like trash but coming back after a long break I play well. I think he's got a decent shot but missing then over thinking and missing again is a harsh cycle.
  6. It's Britain's top league but I don't think British basketball is very high in the Euro food chain lol. David Kadiri averaged 16 and 10 in that league a couple years ago, so I think it could be a good situation for McRae to thrive in.
  7. Giving players minutes because they're tall and we want to be like the high majors is a recipe for disaster. The Arizona game showed us we need to play to our style and make other teams matchup with us. Who knows what the starting lineup looks like but I'd be shocked if our closing lineup doesn't include Jordan, Graves and Johnson. They'll probably be our top 3 barring a surprise from somebody and should be on the floor together in winning time.
  8. Lakers signed two summer league big men not named Nick Perkins
  9. We know he had an opportunity with at least the Mavs and I wonder what the decision making process was to go with the Nets. I feel CJ would have fit better with the Mavs NBA roster and gotten more opportunity in the summer league. Nets have probably 6 guys on their roster that will be regulars in the NBA and the Mavs have.. maybe 2?
  10. Having an extended disagreement about a game on our 2019-2020 schedule = dick measuring contest worthy of a new post Posting about a dick measuring contest = legitimate content clearly
  11. Perkins has been good, but if the Lakers are looking at taking a big man from their SL team I fear that Cacok has shown more than him thru 2 games. Luckily they're playing in Vegas too so Perkins has opportunities but he can't be the pretty good, second best UDFA big man and make an NBA roster. I agree though that I feel that they're not using him well. Additionally I feel running with first unit PG Joe Young, who is just trying to get his own, has done him no favors.
  12. I think Jordan, Johnson, and Graves are pretty locked into starting in the backcourt. I think Nickelberry gets the 4 spot but maybe Hardnett pushes him. The 5 is the tricky spot. At the 5 I feel like Mballa is the most physically ready but if he has to sit I'd think Skogman starts. While Bertram isn't anything exciting I don't see how he doesn't get some minutes at the 5 if for nothing else to eat fouls. Hardnett isn't strong enough to deal with true posts and it's tbd how Skogman does there. Here's how I picture rotational depth charts. Gallion doesn't have a clear path to mins and neither does Fagan regardless of the injury situation. Bertram is probably out of the rotation if Mballa is eligible which puts us at 10. Deeper in season I see Williams getting potentially buried with a redundant skill set to Nickelberry and Hardnett while Grant gets spot mins providing shooting none of the others have. Primary Ballhandlers: Jordan*, Segu Secondary Ballhandlers: Graves*, Johnson* Wings: Nickelberry*, Hardnett, Grant, Williams Forwards: Mballa* (?), Skogman, Bertram It'll be interesting to see how it pans out but I like our odds for the 3-peat.
  13. "The ESPN contract also includes language that would protect the network, should marquee schools, such as UCF, Cincinnati or UConn leave for another conference." https://www.apnews.com/d01c9d9805f6460bab475f8d93c32ef6 Not sure which is true but i guess it would make sense since the contract is mainly for football from what it seems and UConn didn't contribute much there.
