Dr. Don Newbury's Article "NCAA Abandon's Hope"

This is a great article as is pretty much everything he writes.

thanks for posting that, i had read it but didn't think to post it on here!

here is a link to the latest issue which talks about Dr. Newbury's struggles to actually get to the final four.

...   We could practice all we want in practice against our third team on the zone but I am not sure there is a team in the country that can re-create the kind of pressure, recover ability and inside presence HPU had in that zone during a game.  It is tough to prepare for when the personnel playing it is so perfectly suited.
Which makes the case for male practice players... ;)

I would guess that all the contendors in DIII utilize a male practice squad/scout team.

Kinda hard to prove one way or the other. Are you going to give McMurry a hard time for losing to Howard Payne four times? Everyone lost to Howard Payne this year, as I read it.

Howard Payne won its games this season by an average of 27.8 points. McMurry lost its four games by an average of 13.5.

Dunno where you're expecting to go with this.

Plus McMurry did have ONLY 5 loses.  four to HPU and one to Birmingham-Southern; which wasn't a bad team. i mean Birm.-Southern had a 7 lose season in the SCAC playing against Depauw and Oglethorpe!  Besides if you are looking at 'strength of schedule', wow playing the most dominate team of the year helps!  Over all McMurry had a great team and in another conf or region could have went deeper into the tourney.

(as an HPU alumni, saying all this nice stuff about McMurry is starting to give me headache!)  ???

I think that we have seen the model to win it all.

The HSU, the McM and the HPU previous iterations (pre-2007) had deficiencies in the post.  (I will appreciate Chad Grubbs assessment as well.)

I think that Coach Kielsmeier had the "complete set of tools in the toolbox".  The national teams with the exception of Hope were similarly out-classed by HPU.  I believe that we could make a strong case for McMurry to be ranked as high as 3rd and most definitely 5th.

The thing that stands out for me is the HPU depth in the post...at least 4-5 players in the rotation is preferable.

As for next year, I like HSU and UMHB on the West and UT-Tyler on the East.  I am not sure what MissColl and LaCollege can bring in.

McMurry is losing three to graduation and maybe a 4th as well.  (Mission accomplished!  ;) )

come on Ralph... i think your forgetting about Schreiner!!!  ;)

sorry, that's just mean.  ;D

WOW!  68-54, and as the announcer said, "HPU was never tested this season." 

My hat is off to Coach K and to the Lady Jackets!  Congratulations and thanks for showing the nation that they need to keep an eye on the ASC!

Keep stinging, Jackets!  



Apparently the announcer missed last week's sectional final.

Congratulations to HPU on a spectacular season.

He did mention that game as their greatest challenge of the year but that with home court advantage it was never really in question.  Not his words, but what I gleaned from his comments. 

 ??? When you're trailing by 4 with less than 4 minutes left, there's some question--even if you're playing at home.

there is only one test that matters...and we just passed it with flying colors!!!

I expect you and I may have the same national champ ...

I suspect that as well. :)  I'm real impressed with Oglethorp, and gald i picked them into the final four. ;)  their regular season schedule was a tough  :o one.  though i've got messiah and HPU in the championship game. 

Lady Jackets all the way, baby!
Yet Again, how could i not quote it!  ;D

GO HOWARD PAYNE
