    I’m pretty sure if MBB put out a video of their team playing Ultimate Frisbee, Kickball, or Med Ball Volleyball, you would never let them hear the end of it. Of course, everyone knows your stance on med ball volleyball. Speaking of that, check out what your baseball boys were up to yesterday! So when it’s the basketball team, it’s “forced.” But when it’s the baseball team it’s “laid back and free-wheeling.”

    They only get 4 hours a week to work on basketball. And I promise you execution and defense are a primary focus. Whether or not you think this stuff is effective, you have to try. Because in basketball you can't win unless players play for each other. Baseball is different. You can win a lot of games by have each individual win their own battles.

    I ‘think’ Malone is a preferred walk-on, but may have gotten Jones’ scholarship - at least for this semester. Somebody said that the coaches think Jones has a chance to become eligible at semester.

    fair enough......I probably should have been more clear. I'm just not convinced of the efficacy of this type stuff. I know it's really in vogue right now with sports teams and even some corporate training. You spend thousands of dollars to bring in some former SF guys or former drill instructors for a week of training and sage advice on what makes a team. They simply are not recreating the environment that made them phenomenal team members -- loss of individuality, prolonged separation from friends and family, sleep deprivation, pushed to the point of physical and mental exhaustion, introduction of multiple stressers while attempting to complete a team task, punishment of the whole group for the mistake of one, commitment to a common purpose or goal, etc. I'm just not convinced a few hours of scissor kicks, burpees, and war stories over the course of a week will achieve much more than a good strength and conditioning coach could achieve using the same limited time to get guys in shape. As I said in my original post, they can't truly break those guys off --- they'd have no business. Damage a few trainees, you pick them up next cycle; damage a D1 athlete weeks before the season and kiss your sports clients goodbye.

    Yea.... 8 newcomers and only 5 returners... seems like a big waste of money to have team building exercises in early September. Instead they should have all of their defensive rotations in as well as half of their playbook. Oh and by the way, first official practice isn’t for another two weeks... I understand it’s in some people’s dna to constantly complain, but at least spend that energy on things that are worth debating about... I don’t see any downside to team building activities in the preseason with so many new faces on this team.

    This is the DU perspective on the Summit League. It is all about Sanford and the Dakotas...and nothing else. ORU and DU need to find new landing spots. https://letsgodu.com/2018/08/28/summit-league-bromance-is-risky-business/

    Only Kearns, EMan, Ahmedic and Miller are known quantities. The rest represents lots of apparent talent, but not seasoned. From what we know, I can’t disagree with your initial lineup. Gotta think that Ahmedic, Weaver and Saunders will be right off the bench. I notice that Jones is commenting on ORUMBB tweets - specifically saying he can’t wait to join his teammates. We will see.

    Malone was a walk-on for two years at Wichita State. Not exactly Adam Liberty...

    There's only one Big Country..... He looks more like a Mitchell Solomon 2.0
