    24:40 What does “Tijan air” mean? I thought he was about to reference A.J. Moye, and then he pulled something completely mysterious out of his hat…

  • Guyton25

    I figured he was referring to Tijan Jobe

  • Banned on the Run

    Yeah, that would follow, except I can’t think of one thing McBob and Jobe have in common. Haha!

  • Guyton25

    Well Jobe was always in the right place and did a lot of the little things like him, but it’s still a very odd comparison, lol. If that’s even what he means.

    I took it as a type of unexpected affection, you expect X from someone and they delight you with X+Y. You tend to like people that do that.

    i wouldn’t give CM a F, and i wouldn’t give him an A.

    imho, i think he needs to own some of the uninspired performances we’ve seen throughout the season. and perhaps has to take some responsibility for the abysmal shooting.

    on the other hand, i think we are witnessing some significant improvements here lately, in particular with FMcS and DG, for which CM should get a good deal of credit. DG’s buying in to the concept of not forcing things on offense. and what do you know, he’s had a couple solid scoring games. FMcS is understanding what he can do to make this team better. and he’s doing it big time.

    so i dunno, B- maybe? with the possibility of a solid B if they finish up strong?

    I would say a B+ at this point and could possibly work to an A with some type of post season tournament play. He’s a winner and a competitor, so I’m sure the losses he’s experienced this season REALLY bother him. I really think with the shooting that it comes down to our roster. We had a lot of our offensive from last year (2016-17) depart and I think very few of us realized how big of a shock that would be to our game. That being said, given the talent that CM does have, I think he’s done a terrific job growing the abilities the players already have! What I think is abysmal is our free throw shooting throughout most of the season. That one is a head scratcher to me.

    I would give him a “C” because I think this season is just average. The team was expected to be middle of the pack in the Big 10 and that is exactly where they are.

  • MrNobody

    No offense but I find it hard to blame Arch for uninspired performance with the team that gave an uninspired performance the majority of last year. Arch will recruit players with more fire I’m sure.
