I really like our chances this year with the 3 line moving back. I don't think either Cumberland cares. Probably licking chops! I worry a little about Scott's accuracy. I don't think Williams accuracy will change much and McNeal is not a guy who only takes open shots at the 3 point line (ala Jenifer)...so I don't think his accuracy will go down either.

Really hoping that Moore finally finds his niche and I don't think the line moving will hurt him at all...maybe it will inspire him a bit who knows. I can't say much about the frosh and the other bigs.

Overall I think it will help our team compared to the avg NCAA team.

McNeal’s shooting looked great in the exhibition vs inferior competition, still TBD whether he can be a knockdown shooter at this level.

If he is, I like our chances to shoot our way to victory over teams with bigger, more athletic lineups (OSU, Memphis, Xavier, etc.).

I don't expect him to be knocking down 40% but if he can get close to 35% or so we should have a dangerous team. He's going to shoot with some volume and with the line moving back...35% would be a very very good number for him.

Game 1. On the road. Top 20 team. 25 percent of offense implemented. The Legend bets with his head not his heart.

Oh...well I also figured we would probably lose. And so did much of the board. That was just some sarcasm because you're a legend

game 1 is probably the best time to play this game. that duke kansas game with 44 turnovers shows anything can happen early on.

I would like to see us play a lot more freely under Brannen but even I was uncomfortable watching Kansas turn it over every other possession. I can't believe they were still in the game.

That is one of my keys to winning the game against OSU. We have to turn them over! Limit Wesson to a reasonable amount and we have to make our 3's at a decent rate.
