Good call on that. Now that you mention this, I remember going to Fifth Third Arena and being excited to hopefully see the local kid from Beavercreek finally suit up for the Bobcats for the first time.

We were 4-0 and coming off the 2005 NCAA tourney trip. Jerome did make his debut that night.

Then we promptly got whooped by UC.

That was just a couple weeks before the UK game in Cincinnati we discussed previously where we led throughout only to lose it at the end.

That team ended up 19-11 and bowed out in the conference semis to Kant Read State after a much celebrated off-season and non-conference schedule (started 6-1 and almost beat UK). In fact we were 10-2, 4-0 in conference that year then went 9-9 down the stretch (the Jeremy Fears debacle).

Let's hope this years team is entirely different.

More thread drift but...

I read the above report of the team after 05 and think of the criticism Jim Christian received for winning the MAC with the Sweet 16 Team but not making it to the dance. Sounds like some similarities between the two teams. Just a good thing a new coach didn't arrive that season or it would have all been blamed on him!

Really surprised to go through Stetson thread and not see one person make a comment about IJ. Now that he's healthy, I see a strong dude who can guard an opponent's big and move quickly. He impressed me with his communication on defense against Stetson. I think he can hit the 12-15 foot jumper....block shots and rebound. I really think he's going to play important minutes moving forward his freshman year. Without DWIII....we need IJ.

His FT's looked nice too. I'm happy with a big man who can knock those down.

Christian was a cancer.
