RE: Kent State vs. Northeastern
The problem with the schedule is it was front-loaded with cupcakes. So they start 3-0 but since they started playing MAC-esque teams they've gone 2-6. And last night yet another team comes in and seemingly has shooters up and down the roster while we struggle to make simple layups. This is going to be a loooooong year.

De La Rosa with 4 fouls in 20 minutes last night.

How good would Raasean Davis look right now?

Davis is currently averaging 15 points and 7 rebounds for North Carolina Central. While I am sure that Kent State just wasn't the right fit for him, I think there is a great example of how harmful constant roster turnover can be, especially when you try to replace potential four year guys with band aids that you can never fully develop.

Anyways, Jim Joyce I fear you are right.

I've never been so relieved to hear someone is hurt. I didn't notice any visible limp or casts/boots last night so that's a good sign.

So much for the four bigs. Two are hurt and the other two didn’t play well. I should know not to say such silly things. I too am afraid this might be a long year. I also wondered last night if Peterson will ever come around. He plays a lot of minutes so I presume he does some things well but scoring doesn’t seem to be one of them.

Not necessarily. Walking and playing basketball are two different things.

I have the impression that if Rob can make this group into a winning team, it will be his best coaching job ever. I was very impressed with game 1, and it has gone southward each game thereafter. Looking for the proverbial light switch.

Sendy said in post game presser. Johnson got hurt in practice day before. he was not sure to what extent.

also DLR played hurt last night didn't practice most of finals week.

I was just thinking the opposite about the coach - he had a team that won the MAC and just lost 2 players, and it looked like we added in some good talent (Duling, Johnson, Frederick, Nwankwo). Now, we can't make layups, we can't defend, we still can't make 3s. We have very poor shot selection. Our bigs lose the player they're defending, then end up fouling. We don't look like a smart team.

I was just thinking that I went thru the same feelings last year. We really did not develop into being a good team until some time in February. But, I agree with your description of what the team looks like right now. Maybe we miss Jimmy Hall.
