HGN hard at work making all these new threads, must mean it’s officially basketball season.
HGN dropping threads early in the AM someone must be up for a promotion.
Someone in C’ville area needs to watch this and report insights
24th in SI’s preseason rankings. The analysis isn’t exactly groundbreaking
It’s funny to see what some people think vs what others think. Be shocked if bond is starting
I think Bennett has pretty intentionally signaled that Leon is not going to play as much as people think.
Bobby Knight has passed away. Age 83
I mean what do people think? This board seems to pretty much think Leon will be 8th or 9th man. Think Tony was just trying to warn people not to get caught up in the blue/white scrimmage hype since the majority of the fan base probably saw that and nothing else this preseason
Q: Who would play you in a movie?
Roberts: Michael B. Jordan.
So at least some guys on the team are capable of giving normal answers to the movie question.
Q: Do you have any pregame rituals or a go-to pregame meal?
Roberts: I like to eat a bag of gummy bears before every game.
More reasonable than Rohde chowing down on some fettuccine alfredo (gummy bears provide some quick acting carbs!)
I have no idea of how the minutes will be distributed. However, I’ve been watching last season’s games lately, and, increasingly, I have been impressed with Armaad Franklin’s play. He could score from all three levels, he rebounded, he played defense (and blocked a lot shots for someone listed as 6’5"). He could create his own shot, and he could shoot off the dribble. He was unselfish with the ball, and mixed it up underneath for rebounds. Judging by comments here, and elsewhere, or actually, the lack of comments, I suspect he might have been a bit undervalued by a lot of Virginia’s fans. I also wonder how his production is going to be replaced. I am unsure that there is any one, single individual who can do it all now. Going forward, it seems to me that both Bond and/or Gertrude might be that player, I think that there is the potential for either of them to do it, but how long away it will be before that potential is realized, if it is realized, is something I do not know. I have a feeling that, in the short term, UVa is going to miss him.
CTB could give us more video but alas…
Very upsetting. He was a legend and as someone with parents getting into their 70s it’s a stern reminder that time is precious.
I’d be surprised if the starting lineup on Monday isn’t:
Should have until iMac finishes.
Saying “maybe he’s sick of college” and “maybe he’ll go to the NBA as a result” in the same sentence is just automatically disqualifying
I know it’s a hot take but like cmon have you ever heard Tony talk?? Not much “molding men” going on in the NBA. If he wanted to go to the NBA he would’ve done it a long time ago
He also called the NBA “cookie-cutter” at media day. He’s not retiring anytime soon IMO and he is not going to NBA.
