I was kinda hoping to follow @RealMatThompson this season.
How many practice team members are there? Who is #31?
are any/all practices open to the public?
Thanks! Do you know why they practice in different #'s during practice than their official game day rosters? And I am so excited for Nov. 8th I can hardly stand it.
Thanks for the updates Mat. Not Midnight Maddness but still better than nothing. I can't wait to watch this team this year.
Since, Tad has been here every team has been markedly different from each other. This year though I expect to see the biggest change. The Buffs lose a phenomenal key player in Roberson but simultaneously receive a tidal wave of fresh talent. When thinking about this year I have a thousand questions but an equal amount of optimism. Can't wait to see the two red shirts from last year on the court. Can't wait to see the new freshmen. Can't wait to see the improvements on the returning guys. Can't wait to see how all of this all mixes together. This year is going to be fun. I've already bought stock Orville Redenbacher's.
I think this season lives and dies with The Mayor's ability to put aside the NBA and focus on the task at hand. He has to be the vocal leader and the star. He has shown flashes of absolute dominance at times. Also important is our ability to play team D. I think XJ and Jelly step up and help us out on the glass, but its going to take everyone.
I just dropped a blog post of a Statistical Preview of the 2013-2014 team.
If Dustin and Jenkins continue to look better than Scott, XJ, Booker and Spencer we are going to be scary good.
I want this team to apply more full court pressure and really scrap it out defensively. Offensively I think the team can stretch the court better which should open up a lot of lanes to the basket and 1-on-1 in the post for Jelly to get to work
That was a great write up. Thanks for doing that. I have been waiting for the year where the bench was deep enough to use the altitude advantage. I am glad to hear that time may have arrived.
This year Jelly becomes Man O' War
Boyle seems really high on Hopkins
The players seem really high on Thomas
Thomas better pan out, I picked him as my new favorite buff now that Dre is gone.
Even more so the past couple days. Sounds like J-Hop had an impressive week of practice. I think he's already passed XT on the depth chart.
That's great. Talton played pretty well towards the end of the season. If a one week into practice Jhop surpassed a soph Talton it means good things for our depth.
