    Future of Alumni Arena

    uhh...I have. The track makes me disconnected from the game. I do not enjoy watching games there. I'm glad you do. However, many people in the community do feel this way, as you admit, and that's a problem if we want people to actually come to games.

    Future of Alumni Arena

    Honestly, out of all the capital projects possible for the athletics department, making changes to alumni would probably be bottom of the list. Not that it couldn't be better, but I think that money would be better spent on making the football stadium not a terrible place to watch a game, or on training/practice facilities which will help lure recruits. Top of my list would be a dedicated basketball facility for practices, training, etc. State of the art.

    Still here. Listen, I love this team and this season. The way i vent during horrific performances like the first half is that I post my frustrations with other fans who can identify. If you can't handle that, the forum has the option to hide my posts.

    Yes, but to be fair, they were slow on defense from the first whistle. I'm sure the fouls have an impact, but it's not like they came out gangbusters and have had to tone it down.

    Actually, they're one of the best defenses in the country.

    Meh. I don't care if the ref's were perfect. UB still wouldn't be close to winning. They've been baaaaaaaaad.

    Perkins has been, by and large, dogshit this game. Hell, he's been like this the last few weeks except the game he came off the bench in the 2nd half. Something going on with him.

    Meh, both teams play in front of the same refs. If you're a top 25 team you need to be able to adjust.

    He has time, but if Williams can't figure out that he's a too-skinny PF or SF and keeps trying to be fucking Steph Curry out there with the handles and 3s, he has no future with this program.

    Yup. The 2nd half of the season is showing what UB is. A very good mid-major that might be able to win a game or two in March, but probably not top 25 long term.

    Perkins doing well at impersonating a fucking traffic cone on defense.

    What really worries me is that this team has had the same issues for the last month+. Most game, same things. Too many turnovers, get cold shooting really easily, extreme swings in defensive intensity and focus...and I just haven't seen them improve on those issues much.

    #25 UB @ Toledo (2/15 - 7:00pm ET)

    Absolutely horrid in literally every facet. If they can't get up for this game...just the same stuff over and over.

    CMU @ #23 UB (2/9 - 3:30pm ET)

    From as bad as they've played all year to maybe as good as they've played. What a rollercoaster of a game.

    CMU @ #23 UB (2/9 - 3:30pm ET)

    UB generally pressuring the ball a lot on D and forcing CMU to make bad passes. That's what they need to do, because if CMU gets open looks, they WILL make them.

    CMU @ #23 UB (2/9 - 3:30pm ET)

    So which team will we see in the second half? An angry one that is pissed off that CMU is disrespecting them in their own gym, especially with Austin's step over CJ? Or a team that slides back into lax defense and poor movement on offense like the 2nd half vs. BGSU?
  17. UBigbobby

    CMU @ #23 UB (2/9 - 3:30pm ET)

    He should want to rip his team's heads off for most of that first half. Probably the worst basketball they've played in years.

    CMU @ #23 UB (2/9 - 3:30pm ET)

    Paul Peck: Other than better effort, what else has changed for UB? Yes, and I'm the terrible person for bringing up effort when they're obviously in la-la land on D the last few games...

    CMU @ #23 UB (2/9 - 3:30pm ET)

    Well they finally figured out there was a game today.

    CMU @ #23 UB (2/9 - 3:30pm ET)

    Getting run out of our own building. I better not say the E word or people will have a meltdown though.
  21. UBigbobby

    CMU @ #23 UB (2/9 - 3:30pm ET)

    This is an embarrassment. No one is in to the game. Absolutely sleepwalking at both ends of the floor.
  22. UBigbobby

    CMU @ #23 UB (2/9 - 3:30pm ET)

    Looks a lot like the second half of the BGSU game. CMU hitting their shots, UB is cold, and not locking it down on defense quite enough to make up for it.
  23. UBigbobby

    CMU @ #23 UB (2/9 - 3:30pm ET)

    Should be a good matchup for UB. UB's defense (if they show up) should outmatch CMU's offense, and CMU has no defense to speak of. Their record is better than they really are, and we have them at home. Would expect a 10-20 point win. Need that to get back on track.

    Dontay Caruthers

    Dontay is very boom or bust. Luckily he's been more boom this year. He's tenacious and one of the best defenders in the nation. However he's also often wild and out of control and prone to carless turnovers. Great guy to have coming off the bench.
  25. I would go this route. Always nice to get a power conference game, but it would be on the road. I would like to see them try and get Towson, Missouri State, or St. Joseph's to come to Alumni. Might even have a chance at UConn.
