    What's worked for Northern and their system is something we have all watched and seen for a long time as fans, especially the last two seasons.

    You can have your opinion, I like talent and depth and was disappointed he left. By all means go build your team of gaurds if that's what Puff wants to do. I wont be on your thread turning it into a basketball symposium about "Analytics of basketball: NSIC 2019"

    The last two years kind of speak for themselves.

    No clue where your national title talk comes from. As of last year I was hoping for a top five finish, going into next year it will probably be the same. I'm not a delusional fan, I am one that's follows my school and our players closely. I know how we are built and what we are set up to do, as you may be for Moorhead but you aren't the All Knowing, so take your ridiculous diversion of topic talents and go watch some of your own film.

    My goodness WalTThall, more time recruiting, less time on the boards.
    So easily triggered...

    Like walthall would spend two seconds posting on this site...that is truly hilarious. Love big guys. If you find ones that are mobile and can shoot the three even better. I’ll take a team of them. Problem is those guys are playing d1. Oh I know, northern can beat most d1 teams so why would anyone play d1 when they could play for the wolves. Hate to break it to you but D2 basketball is mostly a shooters game with an emphasis on perimeter players. Northern has had some good big guys in the recent past. Congratulations to them. Hope you are able to sleep at night knowing your third post is no longer on the roster. I’m sure there is support group in Aberdeen to help you work through it.

    I will too...my point is that they really need to be able to go out and defend on perimeter as the way the game is played they are pulled away from basket more and more teams are relying on three point shooting. Not saying there is no place for good big guy. But the old school big slow 7 footers are not used as much anymore as a lot of teams are going smaller with more mobile 6’7 type guys at center (like NW Missouri posts) and not posting up as much. It’s the golden state copycat phenomenon, in my opinion. Old school was more inside/out basketball. Today game is much less of that (at all levels)...it’s clear out the paint and dribble drive and kick for three.

    Right...when we took Arizona State to OT and the same year went to the title game, had nothing to do with our two stellar post players. Makes sense now.

    I never said it was easy but our best success has been to have that as part of our game plan, it has worked and will keep working. What better feature than to have something others don't. I'm not the only member of a fan base looking for a post presence on their team, why dont you go rail on them for awhile.

    I'll sleep just fine and I don't live in Abedeen, much to my dismay

    Then you should look at who our posts were...they were not 7 foot slow guys. Balcome showed that in HS, maybe it would have translated to college and maybe it wouldn't. Like I said he was also a guy that could knock down a three at 6'10". Depth is nice at any position. We saw it when Doyle and Evans got in foul trouble and we had to play Decker two years in the 17-18 season. He wasnt very good that year and still was better than having no one to step in to that spot. Thankfully Decker had a nice year and Fox was able to develop nicely at a new position this past season.

    Yep you had two good posts that year, who never played on the court at same time. Because they had 4 perimeter players on court with them at all times firing threes, etc. Ten years ago they would have played the posts together and would have probably played more grind it out high/low basketball. Northern does have good post players and does play more old school pound it down, which works well for them. Many more schools don’t pound it inside as much and that also works for them. It’s nice to have option for both, if possible. My main point, is that the game has changed focusing more on three point shooting. Doesn’t mean that a more traditional pound it inside team can’t win a championship, if they have the right players. Really not sure what the debate is at this point??

    No debate that northern has had some of best D2 big guys in the country in recent past. My point is that nsu may be forced at some point to play more like many other successful teams who win without great posts. Of course, any team would prefer to have great posts rather than not. I think you have been spoiled at northern in recent past with such good posts and may be struggling with the thought of potentially playing a different style of game in the future??

    He was third in line so not struggling with a different style at all. It will be the same Northern basketball as it has been just potentially not as many wins this coming year.

    Pretty sure northern will have plenty of wins next year. They have a lot of talent coming back. If nsu pg plays well they will play with anyone.

    Augie will be very good, in my opinion. Moorhead has a problem with post I have been describing with Jesse bergh. One of biggest players in conference. Tons of potential. Can have problem getting out to guard ball screens on perimeter, etc. Closer to the basket...rebounding and blocking shots he can be difference maker. Needs to improve his defense.

    A fight that'll tear apart the Northern fans also loyal to Sunny.
