Weasel/Rodent Analysis??
« on: November 28, 2021, 02:24:03 PM »
Vital game for MU on 12/4.  Obviously Davis is the primary concern but I think Wahl is a difficult cover for us.  He's crafty with his footwork and has a pretty solid inside game.  You would think O-Max starts on Davis but that Morsell will get the assignment during critical stretches.  If Davis goes off we are in trouble, we must eliminate his impact as much as possible.

Flopison has his moments with the 3-Ball but I think you kind of want him to be a volume shooter.  Their 5 can stretch the floor but I think we all know where our defensive focus should be and that we must take care of the defensive glass. 

Offensively, our guards (collectively)
must outplay the Weasels.  This is imperative and I think they're due to break out.  Jones likes soft rims.  Maybe it's my personal bias but I think we match-up well with them, it's really about Davis.  Force him to go left, don't let him get all the way to the rim, and be cognizant of the step-back.  He is much better hard right vs hard-left minus the one dribble step-back.

Once we dispose of Jackson St. the key stretch of our season begins.  I have no doubt we can beat Wiscweaselrodentland if we play solid hoops and do not beat ourselves.  That means fully understanding their tactics, including their flopping, whining, and utter repulsiveness in general.  Take a few charges, get all the loose balls, play with poise, confidence and no hesitation.  We absolutely have the talent to win this game.  I expect us to be ready and for our A game to be unleashed.

That works for me, Muggs.

Is it too early to start the Badger Hate Week thread or should we wait until after we play Jackson State?

Never too early.  But I respect Jackson St. because of the great Walter Payton.

Even in his present condition, would Walter be Jackson State's best basketball player?

It is never too early to start casting aspersions against the rodents.

I have a feeling Bucky wins this one relatively easily. This MU team is the exact type of team they feast on... Not great shooting, and one that shoots quickly. That feeds the beast. Seen it so many times over the years. Toss in the rebounding advantage, and it could be a rough one.

We'll see what happens, hope like hell I'm wrong.

Providence shot like garbage and still won handedly. I think you'll be wrong
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

And I take flak for picking on the Bears? Life is not fair.

I would rate the 5 worst as
1. Bears
2. Michigan FB
3. tOSU FB
4. Notre Dame everything
5. Wisconsin BB

I got no hate left by the time we get to UW. Just beat 'em.

I didn't realize there was a time limit and not sure what Jackson State has to do with hating the Badgers.

What … too soon? I actually think Walter woulda liked that one.

BTW … my kids went to Walter Payton Prep.

Fair, though UW was also without their best player.

Bucky has played two top-30 turnover defenses and turned it over 9 & 11 times, respectively. Below 17% TO rate in each game. The challenge will be if we can speed them up or if they slow us down. Generally, the latter is easier.

Davis and someone else did not play against Providence.
When I watched that game, I thought MU would beat Wisconsin.
Having watched them win their thanksgiving tournament with Davis, I no longer think MU has a chance in this game. Wisconsin plays solidly on both ends of the floor and are much better coached than MU on the offensive end.

The beautiful thing is that we'll get to see.

In the meantime, I hope Shaka is planning to send in one of the walk-ons for a minute to punch Floppy you know where!

Early MU predictions:
  • Kpom: +9
  • T-Rank: +9
  • Haslam: +15
MU will need to find some offense.

Brew, my recollection from dating, and a life spent in OR's has taught me - slow always wins.
