I have been praying for Matta to bench Williams. This kid continues to amaze me just how soft he is in the post an how terrible his hands are. We turn the ball over 4 or 5 times a game just because AMIR can not catch a f...kin pass. Ravanel should be on the court until he needs a breake. Oh and amir cant shoot ft so its just another no brainer as to y he should be benched. I am fine with the dv but I cant hold it in anymore.
I have no problem with your opinion as long as you weren't in the Bench Ravenal and START Amir camp a month or two ago!
No I love RAV he is a hard worker an is a senior who deserves to be on the court. I cant believe matta made the switch to begin with
Matta does not have enough offnsiv firepower to play these substitution games...if you don't know your rotation by now your basically screwd anyways.
Ravenel was hot on offense and defense...stick with the hot hand.
Ravenel should hav played more...bad coaching decision.
When does football season start? Man I cannot wait for football.
what he can do is defend though. If we left Ravenel in there down low he would get eaten alive. He's too small. Amir just has trouble finishing. Don't forget, he's the McDonald's All-American, not Ravenel. His ceiling is waaaay higher than Ravy's.
north till ya smell it, west till ya step in it.
I don't give a shit whos ceiling is higher or who was a McDonalds stunt double or whatever...we are playing Michigan State and past accolades and awards man jack shit...play the hot hand whoever thy are...AA in H.S. or not. Play today and worry about tomorrow...tommorow
Relax Noah! In a game where every possession is critical we can't just give them baskets. Defense is just as important as offense right now. I think Matta knows how to coach better than we do. And if you were wondering, it was me that pissed in your cheerios.

Hail Hail to MeatChicken the Cesspool of the World!
notice how as soon as Williams went out and was replaced by Ravenel, MSU went right in to Nix repeatedly and drew 2 quick fouls on Ravy. Amir is still a presence defensively and Ravenel is not.
forget everything I said about Ravenel not being the defender that Williams is.
We won this gam because of Ravenel and Craft...period!!! Play the hot hand whoever it may be.
Gateway to Heaven on Earth
what?! We won this game because Craft asserted himself on the offensive end and Deshaun got going in the 2nd half. We put up 42 in the 2nd half. Ravenel had little to do with it other than a block up by 6 with 30 or so to play. So really....not much to do with it.
What about the offensive board he had late where he got fouled...what about the rebound he had where Craft got the held ball...your lost dude. Ravenel was hug in this game.
Williams played decent today (for Williams). Ravenel played well in the last part of the game but was not doing that much early. I don't really feel great about either but that's what we have and hopefully neither one screws up more than they contribute.
