  • I hope the games will be more AND1 like in terms of

    Athletism and flashiness and much better defense than last year

  • #2
    Athleticism, yes. Flashiness, no freaking way. Fundamental basketball that fully utilizes the players' skills is what we should want. If a few plays happen to be flashy because that is what gets the job done, fine. But most of the time flashy also means careless.

      I agree! We definitely need more excitement during home games to keep the crowd entertained. Turgeon promised exciting basketball but it got very very vanilla towards the end. We had multiple home-streaks going where there wasn't one, single dunk during the game. That is inexcusable considering some of the athletes we have on the floor.

      I hope Marshall fully understands the advantage he has with his new fan-base and utilizes it well by giving us something to cheer about regardless of whether we are ahead or behind on the scoreboard.

      I want to win 90-75 not 65-45

      GO SHOX!

            I ask for very little this year, only that they make the MVC tournament, and that they win the last game they play.

              Well everyone makes the MVC tournament so.... the team has virtually already accomplished one of your two goals.

              And as far as being more And1-like.... all I care about is winning. The team shouldn't have to beg to get fans rowdy. Make the easy plays and score more than the other team. That's enough for me to stand up and cheer.

                What Cold said...

                and...
                it's very obvious Coach Marshall doesn't wear NE Kansas blinders.

                MT was great (I love him), but it's so refreshing having non-KU blood in charge. :goshocks:

                  If you want to be entertained only, watch the NBA.
                  It doesn't matter if it's 56-55 or 86-85, as long as they score one more point than the opposition. Nobody remembers who finished second.
                  Al Davis is weird, but he is right... "Just win baby." 8)
                  Above all, make the right call.

                    I never watch the NBA, ever, but if Jack Hartman was our coach, I would'nt not buy season tix.

                        the only qualification I want to make to this statement is that if it's a 1-pointer, it better be against a BCS team.

                        I won't be satisfied with an 86-85 win over Md-Baltimore County.

                        And I prefer fundamentals.....a fundamental inside pass for a layup, not a missed dunk. Give Turgeon at least a little credit (notwithstanding last year's slump).

                            Seems like a nice way to cap off Marshall’s initial season – no? I doubt that anyone would care about the point differential

                              We need the fundamentals more than anything the atheleticism is natural to these guys and the reason they even play college ball
