That's enough to be a very good big man in the AE- but if Warney is going to be an elite mid-major player he's got a lot of work to do on the skills aspect of being a big- post moves, footwork, jump hooks, etc. I think O'Day has much better overall skills right now- the key difference is Warney has 60-70 more lbs- which is crucial for a post player.

Right now Warney looks to be where Dallis Joyner was as a senior- which is pretty impressive. It's very easy to get excited about Warney though- he already has the size and the potential to be elite- but he needs a lot of work on big man skills before he gets to that level.
Short Version: I'm way more impressed a player with Warney's size/strength landed in the AE than I am of his actual game- at least right now.

I'll help. Over the past couple years, whatever the official sites say, everyone here has agreed that we won't count sub-D1 wins because they're weak as hell.

That and quality of the opponent is so laughingly inferior to the point it would be embarrassing as a fan to count it.

Thanks for that. I never got the memo.

Agreed. Not sure why they even schedule them - they played them last year too. I guess they feel it's better than an intra-squad scrimmage.

Hey- SBU just played both Maryland and Seton Hall tough but if you still want to claim your win over Mt. Ida, be my guest. You're 8-4. Congrats.

BU playing well and keeping it within striking distance, despite DJ going down with a minor leg injury. Down by 7 with about 6 to go

It's slipping away. BU can't break through and get it closer than 5 or 7, despite many many opportunities.

Re: AE Gameday 12/28

BU will lose this one - played well in the 2nd half but couldn't get over the hump. They made it closer than the final score indicates.

They'll play Howard tomorrow in the consolation game

Despondent. Not going to air dirty laundry here, but this team continually shoots itself in the foot. Sigh.

I think the official record whether it's against d3 teams or d1 schools is not relevant. For example if an AE school played the top 10 ranked school's in the nation and lost to all them by less then 5 points and went into AE play with a 0-10 record, I would put them above an AE school who played the worst 10 teams and came in with a record of 10-0. That's an extreme example but I don't think you can really rank the top teams based on their wins-losses.

Do you mean becasue pikiell cant coach? OR becasue Warney missed 5 or 6 layups, coley missing two big free throws, AJ missing a wide open foul line extended jump shot out of a time out?

Just want to know where you are going with this?


Does anyone know why Oliver wasnt ejected when he grabbed Tommy and then purposly hit him in the face? normaly i would get over it but considering they called a weak call on Tommy for his 3rd foul and then oliver hit another 3 it is sticking with me.
