So far, Lightfoot has been a little underwhelming. I know he's never going to be a dominant player, but would like to see a little more defense and rebounding from him. I want to see a little nasty streak - some attitude and toughness. Maybe like that kid from Stanford a few years back - Mad Dog (don't remember his real name).

Very disappointed that he hasn't got better. Waste of a scholarship if you ask me.

That is a little harsh "if you ask me." The kid has not evened played his first game as a sophomore and you are already declaring him a waste of a scholarship. That is a little premature "if you ask me."

Lightfeet will be an important piece of this team this year. No doubt.

The kid got no minutes last year. He is going to get more minutes before December 1 of this season, than he got all last season.

The kid is going to be an important piece to this team. No doubt. He has to be.

If he can't dominate in a division two game then how good is he really?

Did you watch the game this past Tuesday? You can make that claim about more than just The Lightfeet.

Writing a kid off before he plays his first game of his sophomore season is very phrogmusheresque of you.

That was the children's seventh exhibition game of this exhibition season. They were bored. AFH was bored. I was bored.

For sure. You never jump the gun. Like when you said during the exhibition game Tuesday night that you hope we lose in the first round of the NCAA's.

You are one cool customer.

Almost no one played well on Tuesday. That is the point.

HCBS agreed the organization was out of it on Tuesday. Every player that spoke to the media agreed they were out of it on Tuesday.

I'm gonna wait some. Rather than declare him a waste of a scholly 25% into his playing career.

That's cool that you can be so sure about this team before they even play their first game of the season. How very phrogmusher of you.

I must confess I was pretty impressed for the first game and everything but it was only Tenn. St. I hope the new guy gets to play so its bye bye time for Lighthouse.

Out of necessity, The Lightfeet is getting 15 minutes a game minimum. Makes no matter what Billy P. does or does not do. Our frontline goes 3 guys deep. The Lightfeet is getting his minutes.

No matter if we get Silvio or not...we need Lightfoot for some minutes. Kid has put work in and deserves some court time. It was odd that Dialio never did but thats history.

Well I was referring to Salivia and not Preston.

Dude, so Mason is gone. He is an unbelievable talent. Graham obviously will be better as will Svi. DOK is VAST IMPROVEMENT over.......Oh shoot he was so good I forgot his name. Newman is an upgrade. Preston HOPEFULLY is eligible Cunliffe eligible at break will make a difference. Light Loafers Lightfoot may struggle a bit, but will be needed for the frontline depth for spot duty

Knock Lightfoot all you want, but NO ONE plays harder. He will get better and by his junior and senior years will make a solid contribution. He might need to redshirt next year, which would be good for him and the team.

Agree 52. I would never question Lightfoot's work ethic or heart.
His physical ability and his personality (non-aggressive) are his biggest hoops hindrances so far.

Do you want butt sex from him or what...sure he will be around for 4 yrs total. But he will get less minutes next season with that monster recruiting class coming in....probably less this yr after Silvio arrives.

Wrong again...Dok was our best player. Svi had 17 pts on 18 shots. You aren't very observant.

So you know, The Svi topped The Keegan Ratings for the khintuckey game. That is the end all be all of who played best.

Much more reliable and precise than The Phrogmusher Blubberings.

I agree Svi played well and we don't win without him, but we also don't win without Dok. With the unrelenting bombardment of bricks we were throwing up, Dok HAD to be rthe go to guy but we still underutilized him IMO.

Mich, you have enlightened me, though, I didn't realize Keegan was an NBA scout as well as a journalistic Shakespeare!!!

Too bad that there isn't much hope for Lightfoot and that he's not going to be able to be much help for our team. He had a terrible night, only 11 points, 8 rebounds, 2 blocks, 2 fouls in 24 minutes. Horrible shooting, 3 - 3 in field goals, 1 - 1 in 3 pointers, 4 - 4 from the free throw line. Self really bad mouthed him:“I thought Mitch was probably the best player we had in the game, for sure the first half,” KU coach Bill Self said. “He was active and it always helps when you make a shot and make your free throws. I thought he was very important and played very well.” Humm, perhaps there is improvement. Maybe, just maybe, he will fit in and be some help. cool
