If Trice is out for awhile, the key will be Valentine.
I saw a walkon at the end of the bench that'd I'd never seen before. Short black guy. Wasn't on the website roster.
This is a Pallas’s cat. Their round pupils give them an odd human quality. They disturb me...deeply.
It sounds like Trice will be out for a while.
Byrd joined club 7 trillion tonight (to paraphrase TOC), but he'll need to step up and hit some shots in the time he'll be seeing now.
The good news is that Valentine had a great game. He was in a little funk for awhile, but he hit 4 of 4 shots and most of his FTs.
Buckle up and believe. Gonna be a fun ride.
You didn't answer the question, Clem
I'm already on record with a prediction that Byrd will score at least 10 points in a college game. Might as well be in February 2012!
Draymond Green, Magic Johnson, and Oscar Robertson are the only players to have two triple-doubles in the NCAA Tournament.
His defense is going to have to improve drastically. Otherwise we will be playing 4 on 5.
This is obvious.
As Rockhound would say..."Guess what guys, its time to embrace the horror"
Byrd just isn't good bruh...
And he promptly turns it over and/or gets beat on D. Which is almost automatic.
I love the "I'm glad Izzo didn't quit on him" comments. What the fuck does this even mean? Like Izzo kick him off the team? Before tonight he was getting like 1-2 minutes SOME but not all games.
I love messageboards with the casual obsessed child.
Why the hijack, brah? Still scarred by the past ? Jeebus.......
Is Brendon Smith back?
You sound really supportive.
Byrd needs some confidence and courage from within. Until he starts to have those 2 things, I do not expect his performance to improve.
Well don't quit on him!!
Byrd is going to have to do more than just suit up. He is going to have to play well on both ends of the court. It doesn't matter if he thinks he can do it or not and he better get used to it. There is no other option and no one wants to hear that about his injuries, etc. That's why they gave him a scholarship.
I have not quit on him. For patience to be a flaw of mine, I am still sticking with Byrd because Coach Izzo is, and I said I would give him a chance at the beginning of the season but it has been difficult to do.
The thing that frustrates me about Byrd is when there is a team huddle he is often staring off into space or the crowd, just generally looking like he is not paying attention. Then he gets into the game and has all these mental lapses, especially on defense. It's incredibly annoying.
If Trice is out, will Byrd see more minutes?
Back on topic: NO. He will see more minutes if Dawson continues with his inconsistency and Harris has health issues. Trice has no impact with Byrd since they provide two totally different parts to the puzzle.
I would love to see Russell take on a Brian Cardinal role and be on the floor for everything that is loose. I think if he could feel he earned some shots that way, then he'd be a relaxed shooter. Be the guy other teams hate Russ!
It's a town full of losers. I'm pulling out of here to win!
Two options if Trice is out, big or small?
If we go big:
Harris, Valentine, Byrd
If we go small:
Harris, Valentine, Byrd,
Dawson, Guana, Byrd
Nix, Payne, Costello
If Trice is out Byrd will play. Hopefully he will gain some confidence and play well if/when he is called upon.
If Trice is out, I see Valentine getting some time at the point . I just don't see the connection between Trice and Byrd.
yep. Byrd is not the word in 2013
Its five o'clock somewhere.
