Green Bay Thread

Green Bay Thread 


Titans are 1 point underdogs.

Saw some of their game against Nevada and they are the real deal. They return all five of their starters from last year and have at least two very talented post players.

One is a 7-1 Horizon league first-teamer (Alec Brown) and the other is a 6-9, 265 lb highly skilled shooter, passer and rebounder (Brennan Cougill), both of whom can hit the three-point shot.

They also have a lightning quick shoot first point guard in Keifer Sykes, their current leading scorer.

They are projected to finish 3rd in their league but would not be surprised if they win the conference as they appear to play well together. They really were the better team against Nevada last night.

Re: Game Preview 


Two things that this team do extremely wel, rebound and shoot FT.  

They grab a lot of rebounds offensively and defensively. They also shoot a lot of FT and they make them at very efficient percentage.

We need to attack Keifer Sykes relentlesly and get him out of the game. They would be a much slower team without him.

Alex Harris loves that corner 3, he's made 6 in a row going back to last game.

We are a much quicker team. We need to get our transition game going again in the second half.

I think the highlight of the half is hearing Titan Central yell "Come on, Ref!" over Mel's feed.

I feel comfortable in saying that if we had Andy Newman for the Nevada game, we would have won that one too.

3rd game in 3 days when you're a run and gun team is tough...Green Bay put up a good 2nd half, but way to hold on Titans.

Great FT shooting.  Great FG shooting.  Terrible 'bounding.  

Need to have nine regulars with this pace.

That was just listening to Mel.

What do you travelers have to say?

That was TC and I. Coaches said they heard us too.

Re: Green Bay Thread 


Green Bay players were a foot taller per man. Bigs got in some foul trouble, so we were playing 5 guards at times. Hard to get those 50/50 balls. The effort was there though. We knew the "Three En Fuegos" would be really good, and they are. Jared Brandon has been the biggest surprise of the season. Alex Harris has really improved since Friday. JD has played much better, but needs to stop dribbling so much and just make the pass. Fullerton beat the spread all three days. We won some $.

Lol, "foot taller per man".  Please stop the deafeatist hyperbole.  Poor lil Fullerton, blah, blah, blah.

We don't need it.  We are faster, quicker, more athletic, and more skilled.

Did Kirk exaggerate a bit, sure. But defeatist hyperbole? LMAO.

We beat a very good team today, make no mistake about that.

Wait, are you calling ME an f'ing defeatest?! I'm up here supporting this team. I bust my ass for this program, and I've written checks for nearly 30 years. Frankly, I've never been so insulted in my life.

Both Kirk and TC are unquestionably devoted Titan fans who have contributed greatly to the program.  So that means other fans can't critique your analysis?  You are untouchable, is that how it works?

Look, you guys declared in advance your satisfaction with winning 2 of 3 in Lafayette last year.  In my opinion, that kind of "defeatist" attitude explains why we lost game 3 to a grossly inferior Houston Babtist team.

We should have expected to kick Green Bay's ass, and we did.  They should be the one's expaining why they were really "up against it", not us.

hyperbole.........

"a foot taller"

"faster, quicker, more, athletic, more skilled"

hmmmmmmmmmm, were you in Reno RFD?  if so, you've undoubtedly got an opinion based upon what you saw.  if not, and you did not have a chance to observe the competition, how can you know what you type is true?

certainly your statement has hyperbole in it as well.

Sincere analysis is never defeatism, even when it comes from one with so little experience with Titan Basketball, such as Kirk...what was that kid's last name?

Robert reminding me about Houston Babtist really stinks.  I see no relevation to this last tourney or the one in LAFAYETTE last year.

OK this team has flaws yet you must admit that this TITAN team will be interesting.

I concur...if McClellan becomes eligible...this Titan team changes dramatically. It becomes very interesting once Nelson returns.

We're essentially 6 guards and 2 posts right now. If they come back/become eligible...we're 6 guards and 4 posts. Finally 10 deep.

I know that Horne is playing a frontcourt position, but I don't see him as a post.  On most Division 1 Teams I see him playing the 3.

I personally think on most teams he would be a four but, even if you are correct, he was always going to be at least a four on our team. He does like to face the basket on offense but he will always guard the four or five in the Big West.

Once he learns to play smarter with his fouls, he is really going to help us.

Agreed, TC.  Horne seems has quick feet and a decent outside shot.  Let's hope that seasoning does great things for him.

Horne has fouled at an astounding rate - greater than once every four minutes, which is slightly more than even Underwood fouled last season.

Someone said he has quick feet.  If he does, he should be taught how to use them on defense.

My last words on this subject:

I well remember the Lafayette tournament.  I was there supporting the team. 

No question that Houston Baptist was the worst team in the tournament, and that we shouldn't have lost to them.  We also probably shouldn't have beaten ULL.  Thus my statement of being happy with winning 2 of 3 prior to the tourney.  Saying that, neither I , the coaches, nor anyone else was satisfied losing the 3rd game after winning the first 2 is highly innacurate.

I don't think that my pre-trip prediction / goal of 2 of 3 really caused the players to run out of gas or reduce their effort.

With regard to UW Green Bay, Reno oddsmakers had us at -2, so it seems that even these so-called experts were not expecting us to "kick Green Bay's ass."  I can say that our coaches certainly expected a hard-fought win though.

I have no issue with you "critiquing my analysis."  I'm not quite sure what you critiqued by calling me "defeatest."  I wrote in the very same thread that we were quicker and more athletic.  I'm not sure where I predicted a loss anywhere.  How is that defeatest?

I did point out... after the game, that UWGB was "a foot taller per man."  I think any reasonable person would know that I was not trying to be literal, but rather pointing out that we did have a size disadvantage.  That is simply a fact.  UWGB had 7-1, 6-9 and 6-9 on the court at the same time.  We had Jared Brandon (listed as 6-4) guarding Alec Brown (7-1).

Yes, I am well aware that position, desire, and quickness can overcome height.  Again, I posted after the win, so I had just witnessed it in person.  However, there are certain balls that are 50/50.  The taller player will often come down with the rebound.  Seems logical. 

Not pleased about being insulted after years of demonstrating my level of commitment, and desire to win.  Never will be.

Horne is doing his best at what is likely an unfamiliar position.

Kirk, what do you see as Horne's natural position?
