    Default Talk me off of the ledge; how do we beat FSU?

    They're our kryptonite; athletic, deep and huge. I just can't see us beating them, especially if Rui and Zach are no shows again. I don't wanna go out 2 years in a row to them. How do we beat them?

    They do what they do. And they do it together.

    That's how we beat anyone. My question was specific to FSU, I explained why I think they beat us. I want to be wrong, dead wrong. Tell me why I will be.

    This. FiveThirtyEight gives the Zags a 74% chance to win.

    Because when FSU plays good defense they struggle to score.

    Do they have archives? What was the % in our game vs them last season?

    The guys definitely have to play looser, and somehow we're going to need to find some outside shooting. Hopefully a few days off will get them comfortable in their own skin again, and Kispert can give FSU something to think about, real Novelle and Rui show up.

    And Tillie won't start the game with 3 fouls in the first 10 mins of play.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    I'll be honest, Norvell needs to bring some mojo. We're at the point now where we can't afford having him shoot 20% from deep.

    Gonzaga coaches will have a great game plan. In Few (and Lloyd, Michaelson, Daniels, etc.) I trust.

    Go Zags

    As long as these Zags are breathing ..... it’s clobber FSU time.

    It will help if Snax ups he’s 3 pt %. I have zip fear as Zach rises to the occasion.

    If Corey has another game like today .... that’ll really seal the deal.

    Clarke ...... just plain WOW. FSU won’t shut him down.

    Bottom line .... FSU is not as good as the Zags. IMHO we are deeper than FSU + more determined. Josh will lead the Zags well and Geno is one heck of a backup!

    Can’t wait

    We could beat them if about four guys who were MIA tonight show up.

    This game means a lot to not just Tillie, but for the entire team. I think we are poised and ready. No fear. Let’s get it!

    20% would be an upgrade for him against real competition. He didn't hit 20% in the smc or Baylor game.

    Don’t compare us to Murray State - Morant is amazing but we have a lot more weapons. FSU can go through extended scoring droughts. We just need to keep chopping wood and then get a cushion we can ride through the times they are scoring.

    Let’s start with the fact we played literally six guys. Larsen and jones don’t count so much, because of their lack of minutes. That doesn’t happen again. We can easy play 8-9 guys playing meaningful minutes. If we don’t play so terrible in three point land like we did last time, I think we send a statement to the nation
