  • Heads up for Gal

    Under 10 Random Thoughts there is a line about carrying.

    Instead, run over and kick him in his so he won't make a travesty out of the game you're playing.

      It always cracks me up when TV commentators praise Eddie Hightower. This guy sucks on ice as far as officials go. His biggest problem is he seems to have the need to become part of the game. The best officials are the ones you don't notice.

        Irregardless of who the ref is, Gal needs to improve in this area. When Gal first arrived at WSU he exhibited the incidence of turning the ball over. With the NCAA's focus on calling this more as made public last year, Gal hasn't met the challenge of changing his game to avoid the calls. Can't blame the refs.

            If you think about it, the best officials are the ones you don't remember.

            That means they called a solid game and didn't try to become part of the game. There are certain MVC officials that is see calling WSU games that (rightly or wrongly) make me cringe.

              So, getting back to the subject of this thread......If a ref doesn't call Gal for obvious turning the ball over, does that make him a bad ref? Or a good one?

              Granted, there could be a lot more calls of this type called on other players, but Gal so blantantly shows this error, that even youngsters in the crowd can see it. If Gal can't change his habit of turning the ball over so much, then perhaps he won't be able to learn HCGM's new offenses either, and these type of turnovers will continue.

                  I have no problem with Gal getting called for it. But I've seen him get called for it while others at times do it just as blatantly and don't.

                  However, Hightower is still a putz and should be kicked square in the grapes!!!

                  Where's Tyrone????

                    If my IP tracker is correct, he's currently typing "hightower" into MapQuest.

                        Hightower at MSU last year.

                        Missouri State 42 free throws

                          Me and my buddy were talking about how A lot of these guys are still learning GMs offense. and everything, i think he made a comment about MB being the only one who knows it 100 percent.
                          so not only is gal still adjusting to playing here agaisnst actual defense.
                          Gal is learning an all new system very different then last years with an all new coach at a new position hes playing more consistantly.

                          Gal is a gamer, Hes a competitor.

                          I really feel that that ref calling 7 carrys or whatever has really gotten into gals head.
                          He told me that he didnt sleep that night.
                          I told him i was proud of him and believed in him.

                          Seems like hes lost a lot of confidence.
                          Maybe if everyone would stop yelling o gosh gal has the ball! he might start believing that hes a key part of this team.
                          and He is!

                          Go Gal
                          Go Shox
                          and Happy Hannukah to all.

                            I think Gal will be fine. Hes a confident kid that loves the game and loves to compete. I for one thought gal should have gotten more minutes last night as he about the only one that could have penetrated that zone last night with his defense. Matt had to settle for tossing those long high arching lobs down to the basket and it didnt work out as often as we would have liked. I think Ellis started just to keep the hot hand from scoring not because gal is turnover prone or makes to many mistakes. Ellis has that long reach and really did keep him from scoring in th efirst half but we really could have used gal for a few more minutes last night both to pentrate that zone and be aggressive but also because he knocks down his free throws. He took much better care of the ball last nioght and you could tell hes been working on the carries and making better decisions this last week. I wish when he penetrated he would just pull up and settle for a jumper a little more often than going all the way in for a layup. But I'm not worried about him at all. The kid busts his ass and everyone goes through some tough times here and there but gal is going to be just fine because he wont let it be any other way thats just how he rolls as they say. There are other players you really cant say that about.
