Just circled back to see which thin skinned person I offended by simply stating that I’m disgusted with Redbird hoops a week in. Looks like I found 2 of them!Since you said "see you next year", it would be great to see you honor your word and not comment here until next season, if ever again.
ISU is like 245th in the country in average three point attempts per game so far. Lol. And they are in the top 150 in percentage made so far.Same team different coach. No discipline and just shoot shoot shoot. This team will set a new NCAA record for most tri attempts and lowest made rate.
+1Not like anyone gives a shit, but I’m gonna stay true to my word and not be negative regarding this team and/or Pedon.
However, by year three if we don’t see significant improvement and better scheduling, I’ll be back to my cranky ways.
Love this post.A big part of shooting it consistently is have game legs. Summer practices and workouts are one thing it major minutes of game time is surely another. I believe we’re playing a slower pace right now because of it. Once more movement is installed in the offense shooting will be better. I call it shooting with energy, running to spots and knowing you have a shot before touching it makes all the difference in the world. Two shots come to mind when posting this. The Burford pass to Kasubuke 3 ball in one game and the Kasabuke pass to Mal in the last game I believe. Both were beautiful passes and shots. The team will be better than most expected I still believe.

We played a Valley-quality team (with multiple former Valley starters for mid-tier MSU playing the majority of the minutes to a draw in our home-and-home. That’s a win in my book, especially with the intensity of the game the other night and the way the Birds fought back from being down 14.Make it three. I went into this season with low expectations and not holding this staff and team responsible for the 20+ year drought. Anyone who was expecting more was being unrealistic imo.
I just wanted to see a team with a different mindset and better fundamentals, and one that is gelling by mid-conference. I'm mostly seeing the first two, even if the early results are frustrating. As currently constructed, this is not a team that is going to win the conference nor likely finish in the top tier (hope I am wrong about the finish) but it feels like this coach is building a foundation that could bear fruit in 2-3 years. That's my glass-half-full take on a team I'm enjoying watching develop.
