Re: Analytics

:roll: Yeah but Michael Jordan didn't use analytics!!! :roll: Ha! Funny thing, the coach who I’m referring to used that exact same example. He said, “People who throw Jordan out there as an example of why mid-range shots aren’t a bad thing are being ridiculous.” Then he added, “First of all, the gu...

Analytics

Every week I bump into a certain NEC coach (who will remain nameless) at the grocery store. We have a mutual friend so we often end up talking basketball. This week I threw it out there...”Coach, how much do you guys rely on analytics these days and do you have a full time guy on staff who specializ...

Re: Next Season

Damn, Donyell is still trying to defend the overuse of the mid-range jumper! This makes me nervous. Donyell on Twitter; “My question would be. Do you listen to the person everyone says is the GOAT or do you listen to analytics. Cause from what hear so many people say today is. That’s the worst shot ...

Re: 2020-21 Non-conference schedule

Apparently that Central at UConn game IS going to happen.
Is it me, or do we ALWAYS seem to play them on years when they’re REALLY GOOD?!

“Likely Out the Door”

So Donyell made Jeff Goodman’s “Likely Out the Door List.” I’ll say it again, Donyell fully EXPECTS to be back...and I hope he’s right. https://watchstadium.com/college-basketball-coaching-carousel-cheat-sheet-for-2020-02-27-2020/amp/?__twitter_impression=true MID- AND LOW-MAJOR GUYS LIKELY OUT THE ...

Re: FDU 2/18/20

To put the last seven games in perspective, we went 3-4 against teams with a combined 85-100 record. Our three wins came at the expense of Wagner (10th in the NEC), Bryant (9th), and FDU (T-6th). Their combined records are 27-50. The bar has not just been set low, its lying on the gym floor. I gues...

Re: FDU 2/18/20

I'll say it - if DM returns there is no excuse other than lack of money or institutional will. No objective observer can say we are on the right path. A 2-game win streak is meaningless right now. CCSU is on par for missing the NEC tourney for the 2nd year in a row and the 5th time in the last 7 se...

Re: FDU 2/18/20

I can tell you that the coaching staff is not expecting a mass exodus of this current freshman class. They feel that they have something special with this group. Donyell will be back next year. No doubt. So let's stay positive and hope that this program takes a big step forward next year.

Re: Hoop Talk- non CCSU

So sounds like there was a reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeealy bad call at the end of the RMU game recently. NEC put out a communication stating Andy Toole's reaction was unacceptable and the ref's are getting cited, geez, what happened? Anyone catch the game? Playoff implications? Was that the video I saw ...

Re: I know things are bad

Man, some people on this site have certainly changed their tune on some things. Some of the same people who were arguing with me and 4-3 about analytics only a year ago—ie It’s “not important” that Donyell and his staff don’t utilize analytics...Analytics should “be taken with a grain of salt”...an...
