I certainly was not giving GT a thumbs-down. Glad they got some impressive wins for the BEast.

Just saying it's too early to tell how good they will be during the conference season because having so few scholarship players, and losing a pretty dynamic (at least at times) PG, could take its toll.


Ha, you're fine. Just wasn't expecting the pushback on a post saying a Georgetown must have tried hard/I'm glad Syracuse lost

And still far better than the Buzz era.

Boeheim not a big fan of hero ball.

More specifically for those that did not read it, he doesn’t like Ankinjos brand of hero ball.

Boeheim trashes Akinjo.

Kind of surprised at the comments.  I can’t remember a time when a coach publicly slammed a player like that. Not a good look.

1. Boeheim thought he was supporting Ewing, but his comments actually were a slap at Ewing's inability to coach Akinjo.

2. Boeheim was mostly right about Akinjo, of course, but he sounded like a complete a-hole.

3. He should worry a little more about his own horsecrud team.

Correct.  Our APR also was in slide mode under Buzz....but just baby...just win.

Our nadir (by far) in APR was under Tommy Naismith (aka CTC).

APR has been around for 14 years. Our 2 worst years were 2004-5 and 2005-06 (918 and 927). Buzz's worst year = 949. Our last 2 years (Wojo) = 950 and 955.

Conclusion? We did win more often in the Buzz era (hard, cold facts) but we didn't sacrifice APR to do it.

You clearly do not understand how APR is measured and the timing as evidenced by this response of yours.  Congratulations.  Cold hard facts as interpreted by Lenny....facts only attached to his view and not shared by the NCAA.  LOL.

Try again.

Time to rename this thread 'Syracuse Hiroshima'!

Nope. Crean players didn’t need summer school just to get eligible for the following season. During much of Crean’s era you couldn’t practice over the summer and keep players around so guys had to be eligible at the end of the academic year.

APR also changed while Buzz was around allowing you to get a point back for transfers.
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

My facts are numbers and years covered that are not in dispute. What "interpretation" do you want to add? Were 2004-05 and 2005-06 not part of the Crean era? Are 918 and 927 not lower than 949? Are 950 and 955 not just about the same as 949? LOL indeed.

Many thought Georgetown would go 0-3 in this stretch. Impressive wins at Oklahoma State, at SMU and Syracuse.
Definitely goes to show team, at least temporarily, sticks together and plays better once the locker room distractions are cleared out. Even if those distractions are caused by major players. Makes you wonder what would have happened if a couple guys on our team last year would have been told to ride the pine instead of giving them extended minutes and shots.
