Maybe he could spend some time talking offense with his buddy Marty instead if you want more ball screens

I could have told you that in preseason. Everyone fell in love with the coach, not the players.


Speaking of falling in love with players before the season...Elijah Clarence?

Dude hasn't made a shot in 46 MVC minutes. 0-12 from the floor. Six assists and nine turnovers.

Honestly didn't mean to troll with this. I was shocked he has been this bad. Is he still injured?


He played last night but doesn't get many minutes. Maybe had 2-3 at the most. He looks timid. Loyola brought the defense last night, they were in your face all 40 minutes. Impressed.

I doubt the "much much better" offense lasts long. Those guys will get scouted and teams will adjust. And they aren't nearly as good defensively as Carlson et al. That being said, and all things being equal, I'd much rather lose 69-67 than 52-50 so I can see your enthusiasm.

Really? Your team is donut and 5. Why would you or anyone think there's another Valley team UNI should "beat handily" right now?

UNI finished 8 games out of 1st last year. 5 games out the year before. Exactly what race did you "get back into"'?

#1. I agree, UNI should be the last team thinking that they are going to beat anyone handily. You could make the argument that even the top teams shouldn't be thinking that way this year.

#2. With the bad starts UNI usually has their fans seem to think that getting out of Thursday is successful. They are and by no means will be in the race to even crack the top three. I think that they will struggle to break out of the 7-9 range by the end of the season though for some odd reason I don't think they will end up dead last even though that's what my eyes tell me when I watch them play.

One poster on the UNI board begs to differ: they’re “much better than any other in the valley” and after making adjustments should “dispose of the rest of the valley like the trash heap they are”.

What a joke! I want to know what adjustments must be made to go from 0-5 to running away with the Valley. A new team?

Gotta talk Lebron into changing his name to "Klint Carlson" and suiting up as #2 for UNI.

If someone did say that, which I do no doubt, they are just stupid and wearing the fan goggles. But honestly, as bad as UNI has looked, I wouldn't be shocked if a month or so from now we look and they have turned it around and are like 9-6....wouldn't stun me one bit. I still think that team has talent and Jacobson has shown he can coach.

It appears there is just too much balance in this league for anyone to go on a 9-1 run, much less the team that's 0-5 so far and hasn't yet played Drake, Illinois State or Loyola, all of whom, in my opinion at least, have better material and if healthy, better depth than UNI.
