George Barbour 50-50 for tonight

Talked a little while ago with EO who is with the team at Colgate. He said Barbour is prob 50-50, maybe a little less, to see action tonight....But if he doesn't not play his status would be improved for Sunday...

Unfortunately for MU, tonight they at least seemingly would have a chance. Sunday vs. Seton Hall it will not matter...

Can Shawn Barlow get a minute or two or no? Gaitley is a nice team player and good passer, but cmon, Barlow is 6'11 and tough. Calloway's got not a clue. Am I wrong Tony?

First Half Thoughts:

Hett- steady and heady player (sounds like Walt Clyde Frazier)

Crews- if the kid can stay focused very solid, great upside, much-needed athlete, sounds like a terrific blocked shot.

Youngblood- Whoa buddy, slow the ship down, he's great but sounds like he's pushing and forcing a bit too much.

Nunner- needs more minutes, period. Solid leader, good shooter.

DelTufo-Not great, solid.

Rutledge- Like to see a little more.

Barlow- Can the man get a minute or no?

Gaitley-heady player, nice passer.

Let's get after the three point shooters, slow it down a bit, and pick our spots. Wish we had Barbour as another interior threat. We'll see what happens.

Some more WMCX highlights:

1. And Calloway congratulates Rutledge for the hustle...oh and the game is over...

2. COach Dave Callahan.

Buy a clue guys, cmon.

Re: Barlow. I would like to see Barlow be given a shot.

But..here's the problem. He, too often apparently, messes up in practice. Wrong pass, wrong place, etc., etc., wrong defense, whatever.



It's sort of like a kid in class who often gives wrong answers.

So then.. would a teacher trust him on a test?

Apparantly the coaching staff feels they can't.

I feel he does have enough ability to warrant a look see, especially prior to the NEC season.

He's not Corey Albano, however
, or close to it.

He will e will probably get some time in some blow outs (Sunday?) that are likely to take place.

He has to show something then....

Re: WMCX. These are`students, not pros.

Perhaps they could be a bit better prepared at times from what you tell me.

It has been my suggestion for years that MU go out and obtain a "professional" radio station to do their games and relegate WMCX as the learning ground it should be, while leaving the MU fan base in theoretically higher quality audio and - nowadays - video hands.

Please --- stop the madness, Barlow CAN'T play...period. Don't you think if he could he'd be out there?

I didn't see him in high school, but his stats as a senior were terrible. He's the biggest recruiting flop MU has made since Bill Ardis (remember him?).

Well..you are right in that the coaches seem to think he can't play and certainly they would play him if they thought he could help...

And you're also correct in that he wasn't even a factor in high school.


And we wouldn't even be having this discussion if the other centers were at least semi established.

For myself - all I'm saying is I'd like to see him at least get a shot....not saying he should start, etc., even have significant minutes ...

But again.. what does MU have to lose by seeing what they have in him?

I guess they think they know...and yes, they (you) could be right.

Poor Bill Ardis..It's been like 20 years since he was at MU and you can't leave him alone.......
