    And if you are going to play this game, you have to look at the last half when we played better competition. The the second half of the season he shot 15 percent.

    and that had nothing to do with the competition....
    the problem was in his head........he was snakebit last year...and it affected every aspect of his game......and it appears that has been fixed ....

    and you're right....james actually led the big 12 in 3pt shooting.....but he was top 5 in the nation...

    so apparently doolittle is in the doghouse for some reason......and manek is the current starter at the 4.....with a good chance he'll hold onto it...
    i thought doolittle played very well in nz/australia....but wondered why his minutes were the lowest....
    i will love to see manek as the starter...i think he's a great player with a broad range of skills.....his game is alot more diverse than doolittle's....

    Most offenses college and down use a 3 guard system. Some D1 schools have the luxury of playing the 3 as small forward because they are blessed with players with a post game.

    so like i expected....you were wrong on this subject...
    if you watched the 4 games overseas.....you saw manek played ever second at the 4....

    so game one .....and hawk and coach have proven they argued for nothing....
    manek will not redshirt....and he started and played at the 4.....

    I'm not sure why 87 is comparing McNeace, Lattin and Buford to Manek. They don't play the same position.

When defenders body him up, he folds. The best way to counter that is to add weight. Guess what the college game is a heck of a lot more of than the 3A high school level? Physical. He needs to redshirt. And yes, his game is a wing. He has almost NO post game whatsoever, and definitely not a post game that is D-I caliber right now.

    In that case, you should ask for the whole board to be deleted, cause you’ve repeatedly said stupid stuff all over it!
