WEEKEND THREAD: FAU @ Old Dominion - January 8 & 9, 2021
At some point, you need one of those other guys to become a really solid and consistent starter. Michael Forrest is a disaster at the line and very inconsistent from the floor. Karlis Silins played better against ODU but he should be a double-double threat each week.
I’m all in for baseball. Despite a lack of facilities, you always know what you’re getting with that team: 30+ wins, players breaking out regardless of who they are, and a team that fights every night.
As for what steps the program needs to progress to the next level, it all begins with facilities. Look at what the likes of ODU, Charlotte, and WKU have and compare it to our arena and training facilities. We're getting slaughtered in that sense.
All of that being said, these players deserve our support. The freshman class has some very skillful players. JI will go down as one of the greatest players in program history. Even for a time that is struggling, they bring a level of energy that shows that they're trying their hardest and are proud to represent the university. That alone is reason enough to support these student athletes, and we shouldn't lose sight of that.
