    I hope this isn't addressed towards me. Here were some of the posts I made about your terrific team: **************You are certain you're 2 pg's are going to be very, very good this year and Miss State who is projected to be 3rd in the country according to ESPN.

    Sorry about the misread. And I'm all for liking Aubrey. And if she is as good as you say - even more for it. But just as we looked at Walker in big games vs. the elites- I'm open to have concerns with Aubrey in big games too. The stats you provide are very good for frosh - and in addition to--...

    Starting Lineup Redux

    You might start Paige because she is a better basketball player. There is no rule that you must start your best defensive player. And Paige should be outstanding pressing too. And what makes her more lethal is that not all steals are breakaways. You steal and hit her with the 1st outlet pass -...

    I agree with all you said. No doubt this is the best South Carolina has looked long-term -- ever. Another beast is Stanford.

    I wasn't talking of prime. That was the point of taking Russell overall. Russell had a "career type of prime." vs a shorter prime from Hakeem. But Hakeem's prime is off-the-charts. SoI agree I'd take Olajuwon's 3 year prime, but overall it's Russell imo. Though Wilt's 66-67 and 67-68 is...

    OT: Old Westerns

    Everyone named all the great westerns. For example, anything with John Wayne and Clint Eastwood. High Noon. Shane. Once Upon a a Time in the West. My favorite- Lonesoem Dove. Here's a few others -- and shout out to RSHERMIKES for picking out one of favorites but lesser known "The Fastest Gun...

    Ohh so now we're on the Boneyard that we can't speculate? Tell me when anyone "speculates" on here anything -- such as ND will get another pass- does this mean in your high and mighty world we shouldn't o it? Woo put you on as emperor? Well seeing how you are so interested in other teams why...

    Best All Time NBA Centers

    For those that want to build up Olajuown vs the Big 3-- (for the record Olajuwon probably my favorite center to watch as a fan in his 93-94 and 94-95 seasons). In regards to Russell (I see more knocks on Russell than Wilt or Jabbar so I'll use him as an example.) - there's comments that he had...

    I can't find the article anymore but for those of you trashing Russell's offense because of his fg% you have to understand that Auerbach ran a crummy offense which would often lead to players stuck with the ball with little time on the shot clock. Of note- look At Russell's teams -- only one...

    No it doesn't. ND benefited from the pass. It's a ND pass. You keep dodging the question however. So I'll ask again ignore the blatant "suspect" pass? Or will you dodge the question yet again?

    No one that I know. Does it matter? But please explain what school got the benefit the transfer? Notre Dame? So how is it not a ND pass? I hate to break it to you- but it was a pass for ND. SO again I'll ask-- ignore the blatant "suspect" pass? Or will you doge the question yet again?

    OT: IN case you didn’t know (So Carolina)

    I doesn't get boring for me. I love to watch my team play to a certain level and crushing the opposing team. Yes close games are exciting but some close games are also unwatchable. For me, that 09-10 championship game was an example of something unwatchable. I didn't care the game was close/...

    OT: IN case you didn’t know (So Carolina)

    I'm a huge UCONN fan but you are crazy to think the Wilson pickup is similar vs. what they are doing now. Back then we had arguably the greatest WCBB player of all-time. You do realize right now South Carolina has a preseason ranking of number 1, right? And they beat us pretty good this past...

    I am not arguing. And I know your team is terrific -- but why do you say "More talented?" You lost two 1st round WNBA picks. Unless you are going to say that one or both the seniors weren't really "as talented" as the younger players? I cant believe Harrigan didn't get at least HM A/A. Her EFG%...

    If Edwards can play pretty good pf and play backup center then I think the positions you cite from Mir and Nika answer your question why you can go with 7.

    \ It's possible a soph or 2 won't be better. OFC they probably will. I didn’t say SC wouldn't. I was just being cautious while declaring you are going to be a monster overall for years 2-5. This is what you want to pick me apart on? Really? With your rival also being so damn good too? You had 2...

    Wow -- South Carolina. Just wow! Raven Johnson now as well? The SEC is going to be ruled by South Carolina. UCONN needs Azzi. In the planet of WCBB for the future South Carolina is a complete beast. And on the West Coast - Stanford is a beast. Its possible South Carolina can have a bit of a...

    As for number (1) above- on page 2 of this thread it sounded like you want to see trapping all the time. If you didn’t' then fine. Then we have no argument. Some other posters on page 1 and page 2 refer to 10 players too without a caveat of some games they don’t play and/or how many overall...

    The bold is what scares me which is why overall the 9the 10th players will rarely work if the plan is to consistently use them in close games other 2-3 minutes. Heck I'm one of the more optimistic posters of Paige as a frosh but maybe some aren’t - yet what you're implying is to trust the 9th...

    I hope you are right!! I don't agree with some of this but I hope you are right!!!! I just want to add 4 things. 1-- I think UCONN should play a style that they think will work vs anyone. Thus playing players 9 and 10 imo isn't worth it unless they are near as good as players 4,5 and 6. 2---...

    Yes. I think what you posted is basically what I said. Unless you think for example Piath is going to get 10 minutes a game vs the elite teams? Piath won't get 10 minutes in those big games unless Edwards can't be a backup - the same with Griffin -and/or Liv is in foul trouble or hurt. Yes I...

    Okay-- I still don't understand why you think things will change. They have solid team now and with the recruits that are coming - they still have one helluva team. If you aren't saying they will drop basketball and they have sold players now and in another solid class coming in for 2021, I...

    Why wouldn't Geno still attract players? And he only has 1 senior, it appears a terrific frosh class, already a solid class coming in for 2021 season, and a star recruit for the 2022 class. And ofc it is possible Azzi might choose a different school, but why exactly do you think she won't come...

    There was a discussion about getting to 80. I just felt comfortable identifying how comfortable it can be to get to 80. I was just having fun with the number "80." But I'm with ya that I think it highly probable they will have a a very potent offense. However I've read some posts in the past...
