    I agree, not sure what it is about him but he gives me the creeps.

    3. Not a huge fan of the "Coaches Clinic" but I will say this: Remember it wasn't that long ago when we were in the Mo Valley Clown conference and ESPN didn't even have talent in the arena during their broadcasts. Gillen and Lappas were annoying but no where near as annoying as that old bald-headed fart Dickie V. I'll take an experiment like that for a nationally broadcast game any day of the week!
    I guess I'm in the minority...I LIKED the idea of the coaches' clinic, and I LOVE Gillen....but it could use tweaking...

    I liked the _thought_ of the coaching clinic. I didn't ultimately like the execution of it.

    They should do it in short bursts and shut their traps with under 2:00 to go. Their opinion on anything during the stressful moments of a game is annoying as hell.

    If they are going to bring out a clip board, they should analyze what DID occur, not what SHOULD happen or how THEY would do it. Nobody cares about that.

    If they are going to be embedded with the two teams, it would be way cooler to do a two-team documentary style production, instead of them involving themselves from a coaching standpoint. If they would just give a ton of behind the scenes footage leading up to the game, for both teams -- THAT would be amazing.

    Understatement of the decade.

    Burton is emerging as the type of player you absolutely hate to see on an opponent. His ability to get into the lane and make crazy shots in there is insane. It's pretty demoralizing to a defense to prevent a penetrating guard from getting to the basket, only to watch that guy make a twisting, off-balance shot from 8'.

    Those crazy shots from Burton are starting to look they're not crazy shots. He makes too many of them.

    There are still ups and downs, but Burton and Stevenson are looking like Sr's and (most of the time) Sherfield and Etienne are looking like Jr's.

    Going to be tough recruiting perimeter players for a few years. Nobody is going to want to come to WSU behind the underclassmen we have in the back court. But, with the rep WSU perimeter players are getting in the NBA, some 50-100 guys who need development to make the league might be happy with a year or two of significant playing time under Marshall. Marshall has a pretty good track record getting that type of player into the league.

    3G tried to play AM and Noah, that didn’t work out too well. Bench gets short in these types of games.

    Maybe. I hate to use them as an example but...KU plays like 6 dudes all the time. So do plenty of other teams.

    We know Marshall wants to build depth as much as possible but winning is more important.
