TB injury? ..and more...
I guess I am stumped...what's going on? - very little said and what's said is contradictory...
BUT - Taylor Brown is only 4-31 shooting over the past 3 games, and is 15-59 (25.4%) shooting since the SIU game (3 weeks)...and only 3-16 from beyond the arc in that same time span - so something's going on!
In days past the beat writers for the PJ Star used to DEMAND accountability - even to the point that when they felt that the BU coaching staff was not up front or fully open, honest, and revealing on injury situations, they even resorted to name calling - calling Coach Les an unethical liar one time.
Funny how tandards change at the whm of the writers...
Now... way back on January 26, a tiny mention at the tail end in an article said Taylor Brown had hurt his wrist way back on Jan. 24 in the SIU game and it was bad enough to sit out the next day's practice.
Then a discussion by fans on the message board began both before and after the Missouri State game about Taylor's poor shooting and his wrist being wrapped - now today we have another comment in the paper that the wrist was injured on Feb. 1 (now no mention at all of the late January injury) in the Evansville game....but that writer never even mentions and doesn't even seem to remember that he had previously said the injury occurred back against SIU.
Or are we dealing with TWO different injuries - or is it MORE than is being let known?? This is mportant - Taylor Brown is our best player and the injury is having a HUGE impact. Isn't this the very same setting that provoked one local newspaper writer to go off on a long rant about the dishonesty of the head coach for not revealing every tiny little detail of injuries and not telling in advance who's gonna start and who's gonna have a bad game because he was secretly injured.
I guess I kinda get a kick out of how things are covered and NOT covered so much differently now than before.
I guess I'll have to rely more on the message boards and blogs to get the accurate info.
As most now know - one BU recruit Michael Ochereobia is now verballed to Jim Molinari and WIU. But - they are also going strong after another BU recruit - Coach Mo was and still is pushing hard to get the interest of Tanner Williams and will continue to follow him at prep school.
Tanner, from Orion HS, will be playing with the Peoria Irish this summer.
Ka'Darryl Bell and his team played one of their toughest opponents last night in a battle for conference supremacy. Oak Park faced York with D-I recruit David Cohn and did a nice job shutting them down.
Oak Park won 57-35, with OPRF's Gabe Levin getting 19 pts, 10 rebs. Ka'Darryl had 11 pts, but it was a nice team effort guarding Cohn and forcing 17 1st half turnovers from their effort to try to get the ball to Cohn.
Dodge City is coming off a win over Colby with Tyshon getting another double-double, 12 pts, 12 rebs, they play again tonight.
Here's why it's nice to have a football team - even if it's just a mediocre one or one that can never beat a BCS team...
Northern Iowa is going to ply at Wisconsin next season, likely gonna get beat up bad, but look what they get to take home...
Almost half a million bucks......
New York Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin knows who to give the credit to...
but it's funny how so many different groups are trying to claim him...
Asian-Americans, Califronians, Chinese, etc...all hooting that he's one of them.
But the group Lin most closely associates hmself with is the same group Tim Tebow associates himself with and this seems to cause the press to go bazonkers. They appear to really dislike anyone saying anything religious.
Chewing tobacco - a bad decision for young people - claims another victim (not fatal, fortunately) in baseball great Tony Gwynn, who just was diagnosed and underwent surgery for cancer inside his mouth caused by the tobacco.
Several of TCU's athletes caught - serious drug dealing issues...
Coach Les and the UC-Davis Aggies won again last night -- they are actually getting relatively hot at the right time and they inch towards their conference tournament - perhaps they can pull some upsets!
They are using Coach Les' 4-guard lineup!!
Tyler Les continues to shoot very well, hanging around 50% from the 3-pt arc, leading their conference and among the nation's leaders.
we really could use some consistent outside shooting like that!
Is this the stupidest idea you've heard?
I'm sure this is gonna produce well educated, hard working, motivated future leaders...
