Lesson learned???

Lesson learned??? Post Rating (4 votes)


I see Andy learned something in Hawaii, now I hope JJ and Doc will understand that kids don't get tired. If we play that way, we will run teams out of the gym. We played fast and loose, and that was after traveling to and from Hawaii, taking a bus to Northridge - all within 72 hours. Kudos to the team and staff for playing to your strength and making the other team adjust.

Agree. Didn't hurt to have an unbelievable night shooting either.

Maybe they shoot better tired. LOL.

Re: Lesson learned??? 


Maybe they do!  Maybe they were mad at themselves enough to overcome the weakness they have demonstrated in a number of games and decided they wanted to win.

the team slowed the ball down again the last 5 minutes, lead was so big it didn't matter what happened, but, this time they made their FT's.  Northridge (not that it mattered), had no outside threat.  a fun game to watch, pretty solid performance.  The Big Three guards were flat out devastating.  Duece battled like a warrior - great heart.  Where's Nelson???

JJ, it's the Big Worst or the Pig Mess for a reason. No good teams, that's why our guys have a shooters chance.

I thought I watched a different game. They did milk the clock with about 5 minutes left but then again, Northridge kept showing our guards the driving lane. An open lane is just too much temptation for to pass.

This Northridge team is really young and inexperience. They just hit a snag that can sink them really low. If they can recover from these losses, they will be dangerous next time around.

Statistically, CSUN beat us in almost every category.  Live or die by the three indeed.  A blessing and a curse -- the opponant who determines how to defend that will be a true nemesis.  Or when Seeley and Yeager have an off day.

RE: Lesson learned??? 


Noting the obvious, the special thing is if Seele or Yeager have an off day, Vaughn is there to fill any scoring gap and visa visa versa versa.

Beyond that Deuce, Jared, and Alex are getting more and more effective with each game. So long as the injury bug doesn't bit us (wild card if one of our MIA big guys show up) this could very much turn into a memorable conference run.

One game at a time.................

Pacific's Thomason, Cal Poly's Callero, and Northridge's Braswell are the best game managers in the BW.  Dan Monson always have the talents to make up for it. Irvine has the speed, length and height to be in the mix.

You are proving JJ's and my point, Roof.

It is relaxing and refreshing when your most difficult choice is to split the two widely-spaced front defenders or to expend a little more energy for an even easier shot by dribbling into the enormous "slant hole" (reminds me of Texas oil or wartime recreation) on either side of the CSUN defense.

I didn't see anyone, other than Northridge, that looked tired. That proved my point and trumped you two old tired guys. You, of all people, should know by now that the TRUUUTH is always right; I can understand JJ not yet realizing that yet because this is his first year on the board. Hopefully his younger son will come to CSUF, to play fast and loose, and JJ will be on this board for several more years.

The point was proven...Players do get tired...I was told yesterday on this board that 20 year olds don't get tired...Reading conprhension is very important...They are not machines...We were tired...I was behind the bench watching guys asking to come out and drinking water...If that was not signs of fatigue maybe I am an idiot...The difference in this game was talent not conditioning...

For those of you who are looking at the board you may see tired in the first sentence of this quote which proves our point that players get tired...This is becoming extremely childish...I said guys get tired . He says guys don't get tired but follows with CSUN looked tired...I am talking the human body and he is talking about experience on this board as if this is a job...Time to act your age man...But with the flip flopping you maybe acting your age...

So which one is it?

Kids do not get tired
I didn't see anyone, other than Northridge, that looked tired
Therefore, the Matadors are old men

The answer is in the middle.  Yes, young men get tired, but yes, we can run the other team off of the court.  Coach needs to respect our teams need to play effetively, resting when needed.  But, with a team our size, we need to run and gun.

Rufus is right that, even when tired, we need to stick with our running game.  But to do that we need to substitute and keep the players fresh.  JJ is right that players get tired, especially playing at the pace of this Fullerton team.  JJ is right that this board is not a reference for all things basketball.

Rufus, even Fresno State, back in the days of stalling and running out the longer shot clock, even they tired out and substituted throughout the game. 

Now I am gonna run off and doing something productive before I get tired....

I like chatting with someone who knows the game...That stirring the pot crap is old and tired and it distracts from real basketball talk...

Best way to deal with someone you think is a troll is to not fuel his flame. There is a nice feature to the boards that makes this really easy. Click on that user's name and then select the "Ignore this Member" link on the left side of the page.

Rufus is the Strawman of these boards. You are not the first to try an engage him and won't be the last. Just keep posting as there are many on these boards who appreciate the insight.

There's also many who appreciate your son's efforts...he's been dealt a very raw deal, through a series of injuries and unfortunate circumstances, but has answered the call in a way that has me giving Deuce a Titan Hustle Award vote.

It was also great to see you and your family at Northridge on Saturday.

Yes, just like those who thought we would be tired. How could a 20 year old kid get tired playing 40 minutes? A guy running a marathon gets tired.

TC, you know my public loves me, they can't hit the ignore button. Just like hoopoligist, among others, they think they know the TRUUUTH, but are just flawed.

troll ( pron.: /ˈtrl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is someone who posts inflammatory,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response. I had to look that one up. strawman - a weak or sham argument set up to be easily refuted. I had to look that one up also. Wow have I been educated today...Rufus I apologize for calling you an idiot...These descriptions are more fitting...eek1

I'll engage Rufus.  Rufus, a guy running a marathon is pacing himself.  In basketball if you pace yourself (lol - I'm guessing that you would know) your lazy ass is going to get benched.  Basketball is windsprints, herky-jerky moves, running backwards and sideways.  Jumping in between, and having a 200 pound man leaning on you or setting screens on you.  A marathon is trotting.

Rufus, I find it amazing that, with all of your tenure on this board, you have not even learned that.  You also have not learned that JJ is one of the finest human beings around and knows his basketball at levels you will never reach. 

Are you really considering what JJ is saying, or are you just looking for something to argue with?  Seems like those that know you well here are throwing you under the bus.  If you can't listen to JJ, you should at least listen to them.

You can't throw someone who's driving the bus under it. From your comments , I'll assume you have never even tried to trot for 26 miles, let alone actually run one.
