  • Well you're wrong with Macon and Hannahs scoring all the points in Europe. CJ put up alarmlngly quick points and that's due to being a PURE shooter. I blessed that I know the ppl on the staff good enough to get a good seat to practice. CMA has a visooo. For these guys and we will way dangerous than anybody will predict.  All the pieces the are there. That's all I'm gonna say. I'm excited for the season. 30+ and a reason to go meet them at the airport again! Go Hogs!

    No man, i think you read what I Wrote wrong.  I was saying that CJ came out of Europe looking like the preeminent scorer. 

    Also as far as this game winning more games than anyone predicts, like 30+, check out my signature.

  • You can be safe with your predictions. I've just seen way too much basketball and grams come together though. Much more than you, no disrespect. I'm telling you right now, don't undersell yourself. This team has everything we need to be a factor. And... next year with the young guns will be a repeat. We have the goods this year.. don't overthink it. Basketball is a simple sport haha

    You hear that hogville?  razorback1829 has confirmed my prediction that it wouldn't be the craziest thing in the world for CJ to avg. 20 ppg and for this team to get 30+ wins.

    I do have the unique perspective however of being a mizzou fan until I went to the U of A a few years before mike came.

    Lol not saying 20, but man 12-15 isn't unreasonable.

  • Since weíre making outlandish predictions then Iíll make mine: Gafford will average 15pts,10rebs and 4 blks and will register a triple double this season

  • ďHe also grew 3 inches his senior year and had programs like Tennessee trying to come in late on him, but he was solid to us. If he would have been 6'5" during his junior year when evaluations happen, he would have been much higher rated.Ē

    Then he sat on the bench for an entire season.  Super athletic, pure shooting scoring machine sat because he was weak on defense. Didnít come in for some quick scoring and never improved enough defensively to break through. Had a whole season to become just a decent defender, but could not get it. Not likely to start this year either, but 20ppg is a possibility? Makes no sense at all, but I sure would like to be wrong.

    I've seen some highlights where, when CJ dunks, his head at the rim, ok... That's freaky.  I also know he's really fast and will be getting some major transition points, like BJ Young.  I also know he has a really nice shot and can get it off against anybody.  Those are some incredible tools to have for a Bball player.

  • I think CJ might give us 20 PPG.  Wouldn't doubt we get 55 PPG from Barford, Macon, Jones.
    OMG dumbest thing I've seen posted.  I will bet you any amount of money CJ won't average 15

    4 blocks per game?  Has anyone ever done that in the SEC?  Will be really hard because you know he will average around 24 mpg

    Jarvis Varnado did it 3 times at MSU,  Shaq averaged 5 blocks or more twice, Roy Rodgers @ Alabama was well over 4 per game for one season, and Anthony Davis is the most recent.

    Didnít Delvon Johnson average like 3.5?

    I saw that too, and thought damn hope he can hit that in game.  And if the Kriss Kross haircut helps, keep it.
  • #171 by ErieHog on 11 Oct 2017
  • Didnít Delvon Johnson average like 3.5?

    No, his best was 91 blocks in 31 games;  that is 2.935 a game, just shy of 3.

    Our all time record is Oliver Miller's 112 blocks in 38 games, for a 2.9497 per game average.

    Ok. Still impressive for Delvon. If Dan plays 25+ Mins this season, then Iím willing to bet he will be right at 3 bpg

    Hunter Mickelson did that with way less minutes lol. But I understand, expect the worst, hope for the best...typical Hog fan logic that we have all adapted to over these miserable years lol

    I didn't bold the averages, I bolded the "outlandish" prediction that Gafford would register a triple-double, which I don't think is that outlandish. As far the "outlandish" prediction of him avgeraging 15 pts, 10 rebs, 4 blks per game, yeah that seems highly unlikely.

    Hunter put up 2.25, and played over 17 minutes a game.   It'll be nice if he plays more than that a game, but there is absolutely no reason to expect elite college rim protection from him out of the gate.

    You're crediting him with a Top 10 or so all time defensive season for an Arkansas center, without a single minute of college ball.  Slow your roll.

    That's 5 NBA players in the last 40 years at Center.   That's a very solid group.    No wonder you think he'll average 4 3 2 a game....

  • I honestly can't see CJ averaging even 10 ppg.  Main guards that are gonna be out there a majority of the time are Beard, Macon, Barford, and Garland if he gets healthy.

    He actually didn't say much but he said folks better get their tickets because we were going to be fun to watch. I asked about guys improving and CJ was the guy he mentioned. Coach A doesn't say much but he really seems to be excited about this team...

    Garland is a superior player than CJ was last year. Garland has excellent ball handling skills and the ability to finish in the open floor with the ball in his hands.

    CJ was a catch and finish/only player last year.

    I think Garland is the better player by going with what the experts said. It is going to be a moot point unless his health improves. Wasn't the last report optimistic that he would be cleared. I pray that he is happy, healthy, and productive to his highest potential.

    I know the kid. Saw him play many games during high school. He's a winner! However, I think not being able to practice is going to hurt him this season. Hopefully he can get healthy.
