Kenpom says 67-57 win. At this point we are playing out the string in the ooc getting ready for what is a weak A-10 this year.

My goodness I just watched it.

I think taking a knee may have been appropriate this time, like please god make it stop!

Jimmy Hendrix he is not.  Should have known right there that night was not going to end well.

I think this is where we need a new term, I'm a "Fordhamist. "     Part masochist, part optimist, significantly pessimist, yet always loyalist.

This is awesome.

If guys were shooting a little below their expected averages and this was the result I would have a different take.  But these guys are shooting at a rate far below their capability.  I think we can all agree these guys are not that bad shooters.  We would be 5-3 even if we shot slighly worse than last year. They might not be good but they are not the worst in the nation. It is crazy.

Neubauer absolutely congratulated soccer on twitter during their run.  But truthfully that is easy and far short of what has to happen.   Go on FUV. I dont understand his reluctance if you are a basketball fan he is great to listen to.  

Yes, 47-point games are that fast-paced, exciting brand of basketball that fans like to see.

If you win 50-47 it becomes a source of pride ask Virginia.  You lose those games then you get this thread.

Crawford runs the defense.  Neubauer has to do something anything to reach out to fans in general.  The two minute video where he talks 30 seconds is useless.  Go on FUV on a Saturday take questions from fans.  He is fun to talk to about basketball but for some reason he avoids engaging on a regular basis.

I was thinking about this last night (it is a sickness) about how narrative changes based on a 1 point difference or a possession here or there. Doesn't really make much sense when you think about it.

The most infuriating thing to me is that we have a built what looks like a VERY GOOD defensive basketball team. In typically Fordham fashion we also seem to have a one of the worst offensive teams in D-1. We can't get to 50 at home. You can't make this stuff up.

Even an untalented team playing on a cracked playground court can score 50 at home.
9  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Harvard @ Fordham Pregame/In-game 12/6/17 7PM on: December 07, 2017, 09:30:53 am
Stop making sense.

However, the .242 has to be addressed now.

I will say we had at least three that were half way down and popped out. They did a better job getting the ball to Slanina in the post but we canít finish around the basket which leads to kick outs and the rest is history.  

I should clarify we would be talking anpbiut Neubauers game coaching last night I am talking about assistants can anyone win etc.

Losing a 90%er is becoming a staple. The GW home loss, Mason A-10 game, Miami Ohio, and now this. The Neubauer era looks different if we win 3 of those 4.

The issues are there whether we held on or not. I still think we are more competitive than our previous coaching staffs. Remember those staffs lost these games as well usually by double digits. There are clearly issues but the fact that there is a shred of hope makes it even worse.

Think about it: if we close out a game we are up 6 with 1.24 left there is no facilities or coaching discussion.  Not one word.  The narrative is we won ugly against a good team.  But we find a way to lose primarily because our most highly touted recruit sought after by schools in P5 and A-10 fouls a three point shooter and does not inbound the ball.  So here we are 3-5 should be 5-3.  Infuriating. 

At times it kills our momentum? Just not true. Every single time it kills our momentum. And every single time he does it we are very very limited with timeouts during crunch time. Mind baffling.

After one of the made shot timeouts we gave up a wide open drive to the basket.  This game was a disaster by Neubauer.  He can coach but this was a bad game by him.

I am not sure Pekarek vs. Raut, but for the other, coaches don't like drama around their teams. It's called the reverse mama.

We said it at the time.  It never ends well for the player.  Letís hope the message was sent and they move on. 
12  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Harvard @ Fordham Pregame/In-game 12/6/17 7PM on: December 06, 2017, 11:46:46 pm
Up 6 minute half left. Not sure the facilities fouled a three point shooter or did not inbound the ball. Effing  stupid for this to be in the this game thread.
13  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Harvard @ Fordham Pregame/In-game 12/6/17 7PM on: December 06, 2017, 11:39:22 pm
Up 6 with 1:24 left and we foul the three point shooter who happens to be their best free throw shooter.  Then get a quick 5 second call but still our fault because we canít inbound the effing ball.  Then we leave open a 52% three point shooter who up to that point shot was 1-5.  You canít make this up.

Slanina was exhausted end of first half when he bricked 3 shots in a row.  No sub.
Pekarek goes 1-6 from 3 unacceptable to let him shoot that much.
Perris Hicks was atrocious tonight we told you this would happen.
We had enough talent to win this game what we lacked was a good substitution pattern, red light for some of our guys, basketball IQ and guts down the stretch.

Up 6 with 1:24 left we had a 90%  of winning according to ESPN.

Evans had numerous in rhythm open threes and literally missed them all.  Heís taken the ball to the basket and not finished most of the time.  His offensive woes have nothing to do with the system.  Very concerning he looks over matched right now.  Maybe he adjusts as the season goes on but other than the ets game where he got to the line 10 times his offense has been atrocious.
15  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Harvard @ Fordham Pregame/In-game 12/6/17 7PM on: December 06, 2017, 07:44:10 am
Line moves to -1.  I am surprised it went down not up.

How long until Bailey gets mentioned?

Lol!  Here is what I am saying.  Let's imagine that years ago, you began eating at a local restaurant, you went there so frequently that you got to know the owner and you really enjoyed yourself there.  However, as the years went by, the quality of the food declined dramatically to the point where it is now terrible.  In addition, the staff has become rude, making the entire experience unpleasant.

So am I an idiot if I keep going there?  Because I used to like that restaurant, am
I required to be loyal to it no matter how bad the product?  Or is it completely understandable if I stop going there and instead dine somewhere better?

We can't point fingers at current students for not attending games if you have lost once loyal fans like me.  It's not a bad year or two.  It's 25+ years of bad basketball.  Only masochists continue to care.

It is very understandable if you stop going to that restaurant if you donít like it.  I actually encourage it. What is stupid is to hang around a message board dedicated to that restaurant and posting about it.  That seems to defeat the purpose of not going to the restaurant.

As for being masochists if you take this as it is college basketball you get to see good teams play up close at RHG and Neubauer has beaten these good teams then it makes sense to go to games. If you donít want to go, donít move on that is fine but find another place to be on the internet as well. 
19  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: December 04, 2017, 08:08:15 pm
Can you read? I said i rather watch a Rhoomes than a Slanina. I didn't say I would stop watching. So people on this Board post an opinion and you have to mouth off like a clown. hey this is a public forum. if you don't like others opinion then don't read them and stop posting and don't let the door hit your ass on the way out either.

Can you read?  I am not saying you will stop watching I am saying you should.  We are not going to play or recruit like you want not happening. The quality of play last two years has been better than it was in a decade.  Long way to go but all you can do is say a 6-9 guy is too skinny after complaining about too many guards.  It will be something else next week itís a joke.
20  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: December 04, 2017, 07:57:02 pm
Verbal Commits has him listed at 6'8", 215 lbs.  I don't know his actual size.  I'm just saying there is other info out there.

Who cares it wonít be good enough for him and others. They will complain about being from Lithuania or his high school. Bitch and moan that is all you get from some.
21  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: December 04, 2017, 07:50:14 pm
Probably a true statement but if that is the case people need to stop complaining about attendance and quality of play. I rather watch a Rhoomes bang underneath every game as opposed to watching a soft big take jump shots from 20-25 feet out. 

Then donít watch donít post donít let the door hit you on the ass on the way out because this is what we are doing with Neubauer as our coach. Enough you donít like it cool but then take a hike.
22  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: December 04, 2017, 02:28:54 pm
Unless you guys change your thinking on who we are recruiting you are going to complain about every player.  We are not going to get the next Ryan Rhoomes.  We are looking for the next Slanina. 
23  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: December 04, 2017, 10:48:46 am
Would be a nice addition to Honor and Austin.
24  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Harvard @ Fordham Pregame/In-game 12/6/17 7PM on: December 04, 2017, 10:48:01 am
Yes he will be the guy in the Harvard cap.

Golf clap.

Pomeroy has Harvard winning 67-66 giving us a 47% chance of winning.  So he has it as a coin toss.  I think line opens Harvard -2. 
25  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: UMaine @ Fordham Pregame/In-Game 12/2/17 2PM on: December 03, 2017, 01:10:48 pm
Imagine if we actually lost yesterdayís game.

Agreed.
You have a much more positive take on this than I do.  I do hope you are right.

7 games into the season I spend money on the program so of course I am not going to throw in the towel.  Last year should have taught people a lesson.  This year will be tougher given injuries but the conference is not good that is reality.  Long season that may end up really long but far too early to bring out the same stuff they said last year.  Note I thought this was a bad performance overall but they got the win.  Sometimes these ugly wins let teams exhale a bit. So I take the win and move onto the next game it is more fun that way which last I checked is the point of college basketball.
26  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: UMaine @ Fordham Pregame/In-Game 12/2/17 2PM on: December 03, 2017, 12:05:25 pm
OK, then this team is being punished for cumulative sins, since the last few years have been, if not rousing success, better than the several years which preceded them. 

In the spirit of counting some blessings this holiday season, Havsa scored his first 2 points of the year last night, on a nice drive, with one no-look pass to the corner for a JC 3.  JC got out of his slump late in the game by attacking the basket, and went 6-11 in the 2nd half.  Two and-one three point plays the old-fashioned way, and a steal, to overcome a 5 point deficit with 2 minutes left.

Hicks, Evans and Havsa went 69 minutes with 4 assists and 0 turnovers.  Perris with 7 points and made some big FTs. Taking care of the ball was a problem last year and one of the things coach emphasized for this year.  Baby steps.  Pekarek was active on D with a block and 2 boards.  Slanina 15 points and only 2 fouls.  Tavares 15 points 3 steals and 7 boards.    JC fills up the stat sheet.  21 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals. 

The 2 point FG % keeps creeping up.  17-30 last night.  At .525 on the year actually in the upper half of college basketball at 135th out of 351 teams.  Our opponents have made .520.  Our opponents are also under 30% from 3. 

OK, Maine stinks.  Wasn't a good game.  We actually fell in Kenpom several spots.  But a win.  It could have been worse.

OK, Harvard gave Kentucky a game.  So did ETSU.  Let's start a win streak. 

Good stuff about the game. 
27  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: UMaine @ Fordham Pregame/In-Game 12/2/17 2PM on: December 03, 2017, 12:03:25 pm
Another thing I remember reading from an interview with Ali Ton.  For a point guard (and with position less basketball, anyone), the particular stats aren't the issue.  You grade them by won-loss record.  Which I guess I often lose sight of. And is likely an overstatement but the ultimate goal is to win. Play well. But even if not, win.

Chartouny seemed like he decided not lose.  The best thing about yesterday aside from winning is Chartouny stepped up.  Maybe that gets him going. You want to start hitting jumpers? Start with some layups.

Sometimes a win like last night which looks on paper to be a disappointment turns into a positive close game down 5 we could have packed it in Chartouny who some claim does not have his heart in this season willed us to a win.  Get the Harvard game at home and we can get on a little run.  Basketball is a long season we are not even at the quarter mark yet. 
28  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: UMaine @ Fordham Pregame/In-Game 12/2/17 2PM on: December 02, 2017, 05:10:47 pm
Good move saving all of our made threes for Harvard.  No need waste them on Maine.

Offense should run through Slanina in the post at least 6 times a games. Tavares no less than 15 shots a game.  Chartouny aggressively going to the basket next option. Raut 1-6 today but I am still a be.iever took a couple of bad threes be more selective.  Hicks 4th option. After that pray.  
29  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: UMaine @ Fordham Pregame/In-Game 12/2/17 2PM on: December 02, 2017, 04:19:29 pm
Does Evans like winning games or does he want to lose to the 330 ranked team?   Serious question.
30  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: UMaine @ Fordham Pregame/In-Game 12/2/17 2PM on: December 02, 2017, 04:18:16 pm
By the way I muted the video the announcers are horrendous.  I mean really bad.
