Re: RACERS @ Saint Louis Game Thread

Amen to all except "it's just his third season". I'm not having any of that. I agree with Travis Turner about not being that fan base that accepts mediocrity. We've accepted enough of that. I'm trying to be positive as my posts will attest but only to a point. It's do or die time in RacerNation in ...

Re: RACERS @ Saint Louis Game Thread

Let's just settle down, remember that the OVC is a one-bid league, and look toward the future. Better to learn a weakness against an A-10 opponent (even though we should have beat them) than to lose to Morehead State. I would bet CMM has coached more Division I basketball games than any of us combin...

Any word on the injury to Shaq? Looked like they were working on his groin

Re: RACERS @ Illinois State Game Thread

So one thing that was prophetic that Mr. Suiter said in his podcast on Friday and rang true again on Saturday was that if this team had one weakness, it may be our inability to guard "low post" perimeter superstars like King for Middle (31 points) and Yarbrough for Illinois State (30 points). Both a...

Re: RACERS versus Southern Illinois Game Thread

This is in no way intended to be a criticism - it is a ponderous observation. I thought it was a very interesting adjustment that McMahon made regarding the switching of point guard from Morant back to Stark at PG during the game. I think Ja is a much better ball handler than Stark, but for whatever...

Re: RACERS versus Southern Illinois Game Thread

That was a hard game to figure out as it pertains to the big picture. I am probably more confused about our team than I was before tip-off. I guess my homer glasses really distorted my views. It seemed that SIU's offense struggled for most of the game. They are not a great shooting team and they loo...

Re: RACERS @ Wright State Game thread

Wow....Dupree should have been ejected. Bonehead play by a guy that should know better. The other guy came down and hit Dupree and cut his eye.Dupree should have knocked his ass out. Would have loved to see the replay a couple of seconds before the foul. That is not typical behavior of him.

Wow....Dupree should have been ejected. Bonehead play by a guy that should know better. I agree, but I wood say Dupree has been banged around all game. Im sure it was some built up frustration. Plus looked like he got hit in the chin on the way in. Still a bonehead move . Agreed. That big moose, nu...

Re: RACERS @ Wright State Game thread

Fouls on Morant were a little questionable. If you can get a foul everytime you set a screen then why not do it. I thought Shaq was in position for the charge. Too many under basket misses as well on our side. Shaq was definitely in position. Also, a couple of travel calls missed on Wright State ri...

Re: RACERS @ Wright State Game thread

Home cookin' refs, plus lack of rebounding could hurt us in this game. Should be blowing these guys out but are making silly fouls and turnovers. I am gritting my teeth on this one.

Belmont 69 @ Middle Tennessee 63

Let that sink in for a minute..
uh oh...

Well, to be fair, Belmont at least had a chance to scout and do a little preparation for their game. Looks like the OVC is gonna be a battle again this year. It is going to be fun to watch Coach McM earn his pay.

Re: RACERS vs Middle Tennessee Game Thread

I'm excited at the possibilities for this team and not trying to be Negative Ned but I will say I miss winning these type games. Been a minute. Me too, Smidge. I have been following the Racers so long and have seen so much over the years that I just automatically expect it to go our way. I simmered...

Re: RACERS vs Middle Tennessee Game Thread

Again, with the schedule we have, and seeing that a 25 win streak is not impressive enough to get you in the tourney, I choose to focus on the positives. That MTSU team was a very disciplined, patient, and overall, really good team. A team we stood no chance against last year. In retrospect now, I w...

Re: RACERS vs Middle Tennessee Game Thread

OK, so I know that no loss is a good loss, but let's not kid ourselves. That game did not, will not, would not mean a thing to a NCAA selection committee unless we blew them out by 30. With that said, very proud of the Racers. They played with so much more confidence and poise than last year. Defens...

Re: RACERS vs Middle Tennessee Game Thread

Middle is tough on the perimeter defense. With that said, wow I am so proud of McMahon and this ball club with this showing in the first half so far. Win or lose, this team has the potential to be one of our great ones. Defense is so much better than last year, better patience on offense. Much impro...

Re: McKendree and OVC Digital Network

Ummmmm, looks like Coach McMahon needs to get the guys back in the classroom called Defense 101. Not a good effort defensively at all. On the positive side though, wow, we have a lot of offensive weapons this year.

Re: McKendree and OVC Digital Network

#44 for McKendree, Nolan Gerling, how in the world did he not get a Div 1 scholarship? With some work on his defense, that guy could be a beast.
