Thread: You've got dysentery... The Oregon road trip

    I don't think we deserved that one based on how hard we tried to give it away at the end...but I'll take it. It's great to be 2-0 right before playing the best two teams in the conference.

    So that was a pretty exciting finish. Something about Utes and Beavs in Corvallis. Seemed plenty for the home crowd to be pissed off about. What I don’t get was why OSU got a defacto timeout after the jump ball was called with 1.5 to go? That isn’t normal, right? Turned out to not mean anything but seemed to be a bonus for them given that they were out of timeouts.

    2-0 will make next week’s 0-2 easier to swallow.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Does the needlessly nerve-wracking finish say anything about Larry's game-end coaching? Or is it just one game?

    Well, it was nice this time to see the other team botch the late inbounds play.

    I don't know, but he started to drain clock to early in my opinion.

    I guess barefield is the closest we have to someone who can create his own shot, so he should have the ball in low shot clock situations. I just don't think that's a good look for us.

    I don't have a problem running the shot clock down sub 10, but when defenses figure out that's what you're doing, it may help to get aggressive early in the clock as a change up.

    More than anything, I think yesterday was a case of going against a coach who is equally fanatical about defense as LK, ie, "the enemy has a vote" factor. Also, our guys tightened up a little with the regular offense, and the Beavs - though frustrated by the refs - probably felt like they were going to win.

    Tight game, gut-check victory, glad we don't play them again.

    Yeah, but in this game, we had a hard enough time getting good shots using the entire shot clock. Running it was nuts. With a 5 point lead? Sure. With a 3 point lead and 3 minutes to go? Crazy.
