2018-19 College Basketball Season

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Well it doesn't officially begin until November 6th.   But for me the season kicked off this week when I attended the Baltimore Area Media Day for the Division 1 schools in this area, only one University of Maryland declined to attend.   I guess they have other things going on in the athletic department these days! 

But for me it was a great time to get out the old notebook talk to all the area coaches and start planning my hoops schedule that keeps me pretty busy all winter long.   

Here's a tweet with a quick look at the media day, some of you may recognize your's truly, for others that don't I'm the big galoot in the pink shirt. 

But more importantly let's kick this thread off with some hoops talk.   Whose your team, what if any more fall out do you see coming from the adidas scandel last spring.   Players to watch, teams to watch, Final Four predictions...etc.

Did we spend 4.5 hours in a cart together and not talk Tarheels?

Not a huge basketball fan (was decades ago), but it gets my attention when the Sweet 16 gets into play.  At that point, I hope to see ND participating but if their not in the mix, just root for state colleges, whoever, all the way to the championship.  That usually mean Kansas State, Ohio State, or Michigan State.

Yes we did and yea I do lol. I actually got to see them practice and play the year the ncaa had the first 2 rounds in Dayton. I skipped school to see them practice. I got a ball signed by Eric Montross and my program by the team.

Hopefully our new coach can restore the glory to what has been the top program, in regards to national championships, over the past 25 years.

@ the adidas scandal - how does football get off? Every bit as corrupt as hoops. No way a school talks to a 5 star or 4 star player without paying someone in either sport.

Ha I couldn't remember actually. Plus the fact your ball was usually 70 yards ahead of mine may have dominated conversation. Lol

Cool. As I told you guys I grew up in Dayton, wasxa huge UD Fan at the time, during the Jim Paxson days---John'sOlder brother.

Got a chance to go to many of the early round NCAA games there. When it was actually the first round, not the First Four.

Hoping Mizzou is on the rise back to where they were in the Norm Stewart days. I wish Porter, Jr. had stayed around, but it happens.

Syracuse, reloaded and ready for a deep run I think. Returning all 5 starters with only one senior among them... Oh, you think I'm talking about the Dudes team? Nah man, SU WBB is where it's at. All they do is press for 40 minutes and look to shoot a ton of threes. When it's going it's some of the most entertaining basketball in America. Going to their open practice scrimmage on Sunday morning, and excited to see how this season goes. They play Oregon in the second game of the season and we'll learn how good they can be very quickly. The dudes will be alright too, returning everyone off a Sweet 16 team and landing a few top recruits, probably back to a perennial top 10-15 team.

Alma Maters App State and LSU need to have better seasons this year.

Coach Fox At App just signed an extension, so I hope he gets those guys competing for Sun Belt titles soon. I’ve known him for years, so I hope he stays there awhile.

 

Not a fan of the coach at LSU, he’s kind of a turd, but they did improve last year. He had a very good recruiting class come-in this year, but it’s tough to depend on a couple Freshman.

 

Non-alma mater Michigan State really needs to have a LONG season, into the tournament. Izzo just hasn’t coached the talent well. He never figured out where to play Bridges and how to use him, and for someone who has coached as long as he has, to not know how to beat Syracuse’s zone in the tourney really ticked me off! The positive from last year? They did win the LEGIT Big Ten title, not the measly tourney one...

 

Lastly, my good buddy, Kermit Davis, has taken over at Ole Miss! Great coach! He was the brains behind the operation when LSU went to the Final Four with Stromile Swift. He and I used to meet at the LSU hoops office and draw plays on the dry erase boards!!! So much fun! Great guy, great husband, great father, all much more important than being a great coach, but he is one anyway!!!!

Curious what you don't like about Wade.  He was a first hire by both Tommy Amaker and Shaka Smart at Harvard and VCU.   Won in his two years at Tenn-Chattanooga, and as you said, improved LSU to the NIT last year.    Seems like a pretty good track record so far..  But that doesn't mean he can't be a turd..ha

Complete turd, arrogant as he—. One of my buddies was his assistant at UTC, then VCU, told my buddy he was going to take him to Baton Rouge. He never called my buddy to tell him that he wasn’t bringing him, leaving him out to dry, total jerk! He thinks his crap doesn’t stink now that he’s at LSU making a couple million.
John Brady was the same way. Nice when he was at Samford, then became a complete prick upon arriving in BR.

Ahh!!  yeah, that's no good.  You like to see guys retain some sort of humility when they get the big job.  

I knew and spoke to Shaka reguarly when he was at VCU, haven't seen or spoken to him since he's been at Texas, but from what I have heard and seen, he has remained the same grounded repectiful person that he was at VCU.    Maybe Wade should have paid attention to other things other than just X and O's when he was at VCU.

My good friend is the Head Equipment Mgr for UT basketball and he really likes Shaka. Said he’s a good guy. Nice to hear!!!

I am hoping my Black and Gold can make a run at the Big 10 title.  Fran needs to find a way to get the players to play together cuz there is definitely a ton of talent.  If Cook can play up to his athletic ability and talent, Bohannon can continue to shoot like last year, and Garza can get healty and improve on how he played, things should move in the right direction.  I do think we are missing a facilitator at the point guard position but the ability to play big with any 3 combination of Cook, Garza, Kreiner, Pemsl, and Nunge.  Hopefully Wieskamp can live up to the hype and be the elite scorer he was in high school.  There are a lot of "ifs" with the Iowa Basketball team but I am really looking forward to these guys getting up and down the court.  Nov. 6th can't get here fast enough.
