Diallo- First Impression

  • What a great start for the long awaited debut for the big fella!!!

    Stat line: 13pts- 6rbs- 3blks- 4 fouls- 1 TO- 1-4 FT

    I’m not going to lie I spent a good portion of the game just watching what he does on the court. It is clear to see that he changes this team in so many positive ways. I thought his debut was as good as advertised, a great starting point for him. The opponent was terrible but these are the games he can develop feel for the game.

    The word is he’s “raw”. You can see that certain things will take time like the turnover he had to start the game. Or his pursuit to block everything even when it wasn’t his man. He’ll have to learn court awareness and the timing to leave the floor for blocks because good teams will exploit that over-pursuit but boy does he know how to alter and block shots. I had forgotten just how elite his skill is.

    Diallo showed a few nice moves, including the And-1 but the footwork and speed to get by his defender was something that reminded me of Joel. I think we will see a daily evolving skill-set for this guy just like Embiid showed us.

    Did anyone watch the game and think this is Joel 2.0?? I got that feeling watching his variety of highlights.

    The block & Mailman dunk by the way was awesome. I know Self was rolling on the sideline about it but every now and then a little fun never hurt anyone. Call me impressed, regardless of the opponent, this guy is what can make this team elite!!

  • @BeddieKU23 He is just barely scratching the surface. He’s going to be a true badass once it starts clicking for him.

  • Please don’t take this wrong, I’m as excited about CD as anyone and I think he’s going to go great things for this team. Probably not program, but team.

    BUT - just to put things in perspective.

    Wilt’s first varsity game as a Jayhawk - 52 pts, 31 rebounds.

  • Wish I could have watched the game. I saw this clip of Selden’s behind the back pass for

    , a dunk even! This combo could be really fun to watch this year.

    Thought it odd that Self had this to say about who the best player was: “Jamari was the best player in the game tonight and I don’t know if anybody even asked to interview him. He was the best player in the game because he totally changed the second half with his energy”

    Traylor - 14 mins, 1-2 FG, 0-2 FT, 0 rebounds, 1 TO, 1 Steal. This is our best player? Huh?

    But another big scoring win and a very fine start to a likely AllStar career for Diallo. I’ll take it! Now everybody please stay healthy until late April, okay?

  • @Jyhwk_InTigrtwn Probably a sop to Jamari, since Diallo is taking some of his minutes.

  • @Jyhwk_InTigrtwn recheck your stats

  • @Jyhwk_InTigrtwn I know he had at least two rebounds in the first half per ESPN and saw him get another with a huge out back dunk late in the first half.

    As much as maligned as Jamari is on this site if you actually watched him in a positive light instead of s negative one you would have noticed how well he played last night. Probably one of his better games in the Uni.

    He looked more relaxed and played real well.

    But hey believe what you want in your minds don’t let your eyes tell you differently.

  • @JRyman His 2 points were huge for us last night!

  • IF Diallo had all of Traylors minutes he would have been close to a triple double. HCBS is doing everything he can to keep Traylor on the court because he is a senior. We need more DIALLO! With the addition of Diallo on this team we have BALANCE! Its totally awesome!

  • I remember Self saying Jamari gets playing time because of his intangibles not because of his box score. Something to do with everything he does away from the ball. I would guess Self likes him for his toughness and hustle, and expects Jamari to set the tone for other bigs when they come in. I would be Self starts Jamari for most of non-con before someone else with more offense gets the start. Doesn’t really matter who starts but who gets the most minutes right?

    Was super super excited to watch Diallo. I love guys with that much energy, you just want to root for them. His box score was great in the second half, but more than that, just liked that he has a motor that no other big on the team has. He definitely looked bright eyed and bushy tailed. Go Cheick! Hoping he doesn’t just have this one season in Lawrence 😞

  • I was at the game last night and I came away very impressed with Diallo. Even with his early struggles (which were to be expected) he played hard and stayed aggressive. That was one of the best debuts by a Kansas freshman that I’ve had the pleasure of watching. He should have had a 4th block as the one he got after the Karl Malone dunk looked clean even though it was ultimately called a foul. I loved that the building lit up for him when he got put into the game and when he was taken out. From all accounts he is very coachable and a people pleaser which bodes very well for us. I knew Bill wouldn’t be particularly pleased about the theatrics on the dunk but when a kid goes through a battle like he did you gotta let him have a little fun out there.

  • If he gets all of Jamari’s min then he fouls out last night.

    I was impressed by his ability to dunk the ball when he was close to the rim since our other bugs do not!

    He too like all our other bigs does not know how to pass out of the post.

    His shot blocking was impressive as was his active hands.

    Most impressed by his ability to block, keep active get the steal and then dribble coast to coast for the dunk.

    Am I being a Debbie downer? No just a realist. He’s good. He going to be real good. But let’s let sell out the rest of the team for his stardom.

    If you watch the game the whole team played with more energy last night in the second half (except Frank on his blocked by the rim dunk). If Disllo brings energy to the team “gasp” then good they need it.

  • @JRyman you got me on that one!

  • @JRyman Not saying Traylor played bad … he didn’t play bad. He actually played a bit better than normal. Normal would have been three rebounds, not six. And normal would have been a 2/1 turnover to steal ratio. He had zero assists which was a little under his normal of .8ish. So last night was a touch better. I take it we all saw the one time he set up on the block, got the post feed and … well … you know the rest.

    But Self did what he usually does too … he singled out a player that does give effort, and praised him after the game (Traylor). He did that for obvious reasons, right? We can see why he did that, right?

    It had really nothing to do with Traylor’s performance.

    It had a lot to do with the obvious – that Diallo is going to take Traylor’s starting spot, and that Diallo is going to take away a lot of Traylor’s minutes. Self feels bad about that.

    Also, of course, for those that wanted to see, Mick had 8 points, blocked three shots, and changed other shots.

    Mick’s impact on the game, the net impact, is at least 50% more than Traylor.

    And Bragg’s impact on the game is similar or more. Skilled, hustles, long – a great total package.

    If Traylor had not played last night, anyone think we don’t win by that margin?

    This is so obvious – start Diallo/Ellis, and have Mick/Bragg back them up. That’s the best Kansas post rotation.

    What college coach, K, Izzo, Pitino, Miller – you name it – wouldn’t start Diallo right now, to get him used to it, to get him ready? Only one I can think of, Bill Self. The upcoming games are practice games really. No better time to introduce Diallo to his role.

  • Well… This is the time of year for good fun wins without a ton of stress 😉 Bragg -13 minutes, jamari - 14, hunter 15 mins. Bragg and diallo will continue to get minutes especially if they work hard and dont make mistakes on d. That is the key for them. Low energy and super sloppy d in first half by the team. Jamari is playing very good D and boxing out. hunter is also playing very good d and he has good timing on shot blocks. Bragg has defensive lapses. Perry continues to be a liability on d 60- 70% of the time. But diallo is going to be fun to watch - he has a ton of skills and energy. As has been mentioned earlier, he needs more discipline on leaving his man to try and block every shot. These are good games for him and bragg because there is a lot of room for error against weaker opponents. Fun fun fun!! Enjoy the good times 🙂

    These guys would have been starting Bragg from day one over Traylor. They would have started Diallo last night period!

  • Until Diallo gets his foul woes in Cheick he will come off of the bench. HCBS did the same with Embiid for the first several games.

  • HCBS said something like he didn’t want Embiid to have 2 fouls in the first 2 minutes of the game. That’s exactly what happened to Cheick in the short period of time he played in the first half.

  • @HighEliteMajor

    I think Traylor has been playing much better this year. I don’t think the box score is ever going to really be in his favor. A few points here and there and rebounds are all we need from him. He’s just a glue guy at this point, he gives maximum effort, he’s shown a more committed approach to rebounding so far & he knows what’s expected of him. Basically I don’t view him as a liability out there so far, and from everything I’ve seen his chemistry with the other players is probably what keeps him in the lineup.

    But we clearly saw that the best team KU can put on the floor includes #13. I mean I saw about 3-4 plays last night that sealed his OAD fate for me. Self said he will be a NBA All-Star in time, and you see glimpses of why that could be true. We even got to see that Bragg/Diallo combo for a few minutes and it was positive (Bragg finding Diallo for the lob). The lob play becomes a key point of the offense when you have Cheick in there.

    I’ve already started looking towards conference play and the match-ups. Diallo can cover Spangler for OU. He can cover Mckay for Iowa St, Williams of West Virginia, Gathers of Baylor. It really gives us that defender that we can matchup against the good bigs in this league.

    One question for you… Did you even notice not having Landon Lucas out there? Our pace was even faster without him. Don’t get me wrong Landon can be useful when the match-up calls for it. I just think the way we want to play which is fast, that Landon will have a hard time finding his role if Diallo’s minutes hopefully become starters minutes.

  • @HighEliteMajor

    I think that Jamari is going to play the roll of Christian Moody: hustle, rebound, try to play defense and then step aside when the younger guys are ready.

    I disagree with you on the rotation though. I think that Hunter should start with Diallo and Bragg coming next. I don’t remember the specific stats, but Diallo and Bragg together looked GREAT. Yes we did come out with a 15-1 run after the half, but when those two played together the energy was unbelievable. They really looked great together.

    Hunter may have impressed me the most tonight. He hustled, went after rebounds and blocked shots. The main reason I have him stepping in to start with Ellis is i believe they complement each other the best. Hunter has some offense, can guard the best big and has some passing ability. Like someone said before, its not who starts, but who gets the most minutes. And I think the most minutes in the post (like most people on here) should go to Perry, Diallo, Bragg, Hunter, Traylor, Lucas in that order.

  • @Statmachine and let’s not forget those fouls came against smaller less talented Layola players and not guys from Baylor, Oklahoma Texas or West Virginia who will all get two shots at him.

    Once he’s scouted and played against I think his numbers will temper off. Hopefully not but the reality of it all says that’s usually the turn it takes.

    Plus in thinking after seeing his emotion of fist pumping and looks after dead balls he will get at least one T this year.

    Now let me ask everyone who has read this far, was his block steal coast to coast posing dunk an all around better play that the quick outlet by Devonte to Frank one dribble bounce pass to Wayne for a quick dribble and dunk was?

  • @HighEliteMajor I do not and have not disagreed with you on the limits of Jamari. I was hoping that Diallo would be this good. I know that Bragg is going to get a lot more PT, and that when tough guys aren’t in the paint against us, Mick will get his minutes.

    The only thing that gets most of us riled up in your discussion of Jamari and Self is the denigration of them as stupidly loyal and stubborn. Until we saw what we saw last night, there was no other option but to let an improved, “Not Greatly improved”, Jamari, to do what he does with the Hustle and Muscle which is one of his only basketball gifts. You don’t have to worry anymore that a few games with him doing good things will cost the other, more skilled player’s, their rightful minutes.

    He’s on the team and he gives everything he can. He’s a Jayhawk that will be losing minutes, but he is wearing a lot of rings and he is family.

  • Of utmost importance at this crucial stage: TEAM CHEMISTRY. ESPN’s Seth Greenberg (sp?), at halftime of the Maryland/NC game last night, pointed out the need for Roy W. to begin whittling his game players down to a manageable 6/7/8 major contributors. Bill Self is dealing with 11, not counting Vick. Will be a gradual Jayhawk process, sorting out those minutes while attempting to keep all 11 players on target and upbeat. Terrific upside of so many talented players on this KU squad: time for rehab of injured individuals, as in the case of Landon last night. It is to be hoped that such a surplus will insure against our going into late March with kids playing at only 75% capacity because of major or lingering injury. At this juncture, very important to keep everyone happy and alert, competing for minutes, not hanging heads or tossing in the towels.

  • My problem with letting Traylor play and taking minutes from Cheick is that its quite possible Cheick falls out of the NBA lotto and makes it nearly impossible to recruit FUTURE talented BIGS.

  • @Statmachine said:

    Let’s not forget it was one game. The first game Diallo was available to play. It was a non conference at that.

    Why show your cards at this point of the season?

    Let Baylor and to some extent Kentucky guess what the line up will be, who will start who will play and how? Sometimes you just keep those things close to the vest as a coach.

    If Diallo plays 20-28 mins throughout conference play and can duplicate last nights play for that time frame he will be a lotto pick.

    If he fouls a lot and hurts his own minutes that’s not on Self or Traylor but I’m sure they will get the blame for it due to their love affair.

  • Did people see the first half last night with Traylor on the bench? Self praised Jamari for his energy because when he wasn’t in the game in the first half, the TEAM looked awful! I thought if anything this game proved why Jamari DOES deserve playing time. His rebounding has greatly improved this year and he is up to over 5 a game in about 19 minutes a game (That’s 10 over 40 minutes for those of you who like to do that).

    Hunter played big minutes in the first half and did what? Yes his second half was better after the team got rolling with Traylor on the court. Energy is something that can’t be overlooked but will rarely show up in a box score and Mickelson didn’t have it when he was given the reins. Hunter is a good player. Don’t get me wrong on that. He showed he can have a positive impact on the game with his length defensively. Plus he had easily the best straight up post move and 1 we’ve seen this year with his drop step spin to the basket. He has earned some minutes for sure. But can anyone say the team played well with him on the floor in the first half?

  • In the TraylorDebate, I’d simply reiterate my point from a few days ago: love his hustle and energy, and if we know Self, his main pleasure from Jamari were the 6 rbds. But the main point is Jamari is a narrow net positive. He cant have 2 or 3 turnovers, then his value is neutralized.

    Diallo, we see the immediate impact in 13 min, he gets 13pts. The biggest peril for Diallo is foul trouble. If he played another 2min, he may have fouled out.

    One thing we know about Diallo: when the stage is big, and even against top-tier competition such as in the McDAA game, he shines (actually being named the MVP of that all star “game”). The flip side, is that with actual in-season refereeing in real games, and against BigXII coaches and against savvy veteran players like Gathers, Spangler, McKay…it remains to be seen what an actual coach comes up with to slow down Diallo. But…we hope Diallo is much improved in a month. We will need him vs KY.

    Now honestly, these kids got to know from intense practice scrimmages: if you are a plateaued-talent senior like Lucas or Traylor, and you are getting dusted by high-talent frosh in practice–> then why on earth would you expect to keep your mpg? This happens across all sports, as most kids realized the Univ of KS wants W’s more than any allegiance to some senior-gets-the-mpg notion. My point is that IF Diallo is actually better than Lucas (yes) and Traylor (yes), then he rightly should get some of their mpg.

  • @Statmachine

    I highly doubt his stock will fall at all. Even if he was ineligible and went pro he still would have been drafted on potential alone.

    If your an NBA GM or scout and you saw that debut your excited about his future. The short jumper, the rim protection, the footwork on the made runner in the lane and foul, the hustle, the rebounding, the outlet passes. He’s got lots to work on but his talent will help him overcome a lot of weaknesses that people perceive him to have. With only Simmons looking like a standout big so far he’s clearly got a chance to go Top 10.

  • I know it was a weak opponent and might not even play out this way if CD leaves after this year, but how good will that lineup be, that Self ended the game with, next year (forgetting the mop up guys)? Frank, Graham, Vick, CD and Bragg looked like a future elite starting 5 at some point. A lot of length and athleticism w that unit. They could be very fun to watch next year if CD sticks around. Svi also fit in nicely w the younger guys. IMO, we should play the hell out of the younger, experimental units these next few games. We know what we get from the older guys, let’s see what the kids can develop into. We might need that length and athleticism in crunch time at some point this season.

  • His stock aint fallin. Everybody in America saw the 13pts in 13min. And that’s the “raw” version of Diallo.

  • @BeddieKU23 I noticed the LL wasn’t out here mostly because we didn’t have a slew of offensive penalties. I know Hunter had the one push off but it seems like LL has one or two every game and we give the ball back to the other team because of an unnecessary offensive foul.

  • I’d also like for Jayhawk Nation to recognize something about Self and KU bigs. Danny or no Danny, Self still gets bigmen. Bragg + Diallo. Cliff. Perry. All McDAAs. Then, as @HighEliteMajor so accurately describes them: the “insurance policy” guys like Lucas or Traylor–who I like to refer to as ‘developmental track’ guys, akin to Darnell Jackson, Sasha Kaun, etc. Then there are the 'tweeners like Morris Twins, TRob., who have talent and athleticism, but take a year or two to become reliable.

    Watch the current young bigs develop, no Danny M. Danny made great contributions, but I think most Jayhawk fans know good polished post moves when they see it, and my point is so does Bill Self, Norm Roberts, and the other highly regarded coaches we have. My point here is about keeping faith: Danny Manning is long gone, but bigs keep coming to KU, and the KU machine keeps moving along.

  • …dealing with mild-mannered Perry Ellis caused Fred Hoiberg to throw a chair (during a timeout in the BigXII conf championship tournament 2yrs ago). Seeing KU load up with Bragg + Diallo, and having a senior Ellis playing better than ever…caused Hoiberg to throw in the towel. 🙂

  • @ralster Bragg is so good and we aren’t really even talking about him! He, along with Traylor, were the guys to really go out and get offensive rebounds to get us rolling in the second half.

  • Wow, what a blast it was to watch that game last night. Its been a while since I enjoyed watching a game that much. My comments/reactions:

    1. Finally, we won the opening tip off! As long as Mari is still taking them, he should make that a focus of his to win that for us every game.
    2. First half was blah. Team was flat but you could tell that Self’s rotation wasn’t focused on trying to push us to a lead. It was more of an attempt to get deeper into the bench early in the game while it was still close.
    3. Traylor: I agree with most on here that he has improved this year and he shows flashes. My opinion is that he is at his best when he is fresh, he seems to get tired quick and that’s when he gets lazy and his game falls off. So I am ok with him in the game for 2 minutes and then after that I’m ready for the others.
    4. I hope HCBS keeps working a deep rotation and does not feel like he has to trim it down come conference play. Keep using the bench, keep pushing the tempo. I am so excited to see how fast KU plays, it reminds me so much of the 2008 team out there. There are so many players that can be the high scorer on any given night, its too hard to stop everyone. Also, beating the other team down the court for a layup after a made basket is absolutely tremendous. If they keep that pace up I think there is a great chance that we hang another banner this year.
    5. Seems the press has been abandoned for now. Would like to see it employed but as long as they keep the pace at full throttle on offense running the break we can win without it.
    6. CD was exactly what I expected. He showed flashes of greatness. He also showed flashes of inexperience/rawness. I think coach needs to get him as many minutes as possible in December and get him some experience before conference play. At this moment, I think Bragg is the better player for KU in a close game scenario. I would rather have Bragg on the court than CD. As @benshawks08 posted above, nobody is really talking about him much but he has been tremendous too.
    7. Vick has a bright future. The guy has big time hops and can defend well. He showed he can score well too at the WUG. If he gets enough work in December and gets familiar with the systems, etc., I could easily see him being a key to a win a few times this year if Frank or Devante get into early foul trouble and we need him to step up.

  • @Statmachine Chieck undoubtedly WILL PLAY a lot of minutes if he can keep himself on the floor & fouling under control. Traylor will see his minutes reduced slightly, but the biggest losers may be LL & Mick…it all depends on Chiecks ability to stay outta foul trouble. However conf is all about attrition so a deep roster in the frontcourt will ultimately be very valuable. Injuries begin to pile up at some point, so how this all shakes out is really anyones guess.

  • Last night was (or should have been) the beginning of the end as far as double figure minutes for Traylor and Lucas. They have represented KU well during their time in Lawrence. They have been great Jayhawks and I will be happy for both when they start and give their speeches on senior night in a couple of months. They both deserve that and should be applauded for it.

    But from a pure basketball standpoint, last night made it quite obvious that the rotation should be Diallo and Ellis starting up front, with Bragg off the bench and Mickelson picking up some minutes as well. On the perimeter, it should be the current starters plus Svi and either Vick or Greene, depending on if we need offense or defense. That’s the rotation that our talent dictates. At this point, I think we even should go Vick over Greene because Vick provides another potential ball handler.

    There were so many moments last night where it was clear that our best four bigs are Ellis, Diallo, Bragg and Mickelson. Diallo’s chase down block in the second half comes to mind. There aren’t many college bigs that can make that play. Seeing him play last night, Diallo confirmed my suspicions - he raises the ceiling on this team.

    It also made it clear that Bragg is at worst our third best big. He’s already likely our best passing big man and may be the best overall ball handler once he gets a bit more confident in his skills. Perry will continue to be steady and I think the fact that he can be a contributor instead of the star is really helping him. Perry can get you 12-15 a night and, if at the end of the day we are talking about Selden, Mason and Diallo, I think that helps Perry even more because he doesn’t have the burden of making every play when he ends up in a bad matchup.

    It’s also clear that Mickelson is absolutely deserving of that last big rotation spot. His shot blocking and offensive skills make him the easy choice. He can do everything Lucas can, at Lucas’ size, but slightly better. I feel bad that Landen is going to lose his spot while he is injured, but I can’t see a path for him to get back in the rotation now that Diallo is available.

    I think Greene is in the same position in his competition with Svi and Vick. Getting suspended is always dumb, but getting suspended when you are competing with a couple of guys that can play is really dumb.

    Self has to walk a careful line here, because basketball is the easiest sport to see who should be playing. Self can praise Jamari all he wants, but its abundantly clear that Bragg and Diallo are better at basketball than Jamari is. And if that’s clear to us as fans, I can be pretty sure that’s clear to the players in practice. It’s not like Diallo and Bragg don’t give effort. If that was the case, I would be all for keeping Jamari in the rotation to keep the effort high. But Diallo gives great effort. Bragg actually probably needs to pace himself a bit more so he isn’t rushing offensively.

  • @justanotherfan Great post! I like every point you made.

    The biggest difference between Jamari Traylor and Landen Lucas: Traylor is by far the better athlete. Lucas can be a got-fouls-to-give “banger”. Hunter is simply more nimble-footed than Lucas also. Foot speed is a commodity in most sports, and you cannot coach that. Nor does it seem that Huditioning changes it much.

    Hunter Mickelson was a top50 recruit, and you can tell. Lucas was not in the top100, and you can tell. Traylor is an Xfactor, depending on the opposition’s roster. I DO hold in the highest esteem the fact that Traylor throws his body around like Mason and Selden. We need that! I would easily bestow the J.Haase “FloorBurns” award to Jamari Traylor. He has upheld that KU tradition!

  • @HighEliteMajor I’m not as sure about Izzo. Davis comes off the bench and he is pretty talented and touted.

  • @JRyman As mentioned, I didn’t see the game. And I just pulled the stats from some site this morning when I couldn’t sleep, I obviously got his stats wrong, my bad.

    Also, I’m a big Self fan, and happy to have him here. If he says Traylor was the best guy, who am I to disagree. It’s just there’s been a lot of talk around Traylors play lately and when I saw the stats (either incomplete or I misread them completely) it made me scratch my head and hope someone who did watch the game would fill me in. HCBS, and heck just about everybody on these boards knows more about basketball than I do.

    My first post of the season and I hosed it up pretty good! Think I’ll go back to just reading now…

  • @Jyhwk_InTigrtwn Don’t stop posting now!! Heck it can only get better. I mean does anyone wrote “the old man and the sea” their first time out? NO.

    So keep reading keep posting and have fun.

  • @ralster

    Sasha and Darnell were both ESPN top 100 kids. I’m not big on comparing them to Lucas and Traylor.

    But you have to admit, the GROWTH of our bigs has slowed down considerably since Danny left.

  • @mihawk Fully agree. Darnell was a stud his senior year. The starter on a National Title team. Kaun was really key off the bench. That was what made that team so special. There were really no holes. Great guards. Great wings. Great post and tons of depth.

    If Landen ever comes close to being as good as Darnell or Sasha I will be more than thrilled.

  • Comments from Perry Elli after the game (from kuathletics.com)

    On the change of tempo on the second half:

    "Jamari (Traylor) came out and made some plays at the beginning of the half to set the intensity defensively and got the rest of us going."

    It looks like the players appreciate Traylor more than some posters do…just sayin’

  • @Jyhwk_InTigrtwn What @JRyman said … keep posting.

  • @HighEliteMajor I’ve never told anyone to stop posting. Just to try and not be such a negative Nancy about what they say over and over and over again.

  • @ZIG

    I totally agree that this was the most intriguing lineup:


    They even replaced one of Graham and Mason with Svi.

    1. This is our most athletic lineup.
    2. We can balance Vick’s lack of offense with Svi. But we also have Bragg and Diallo, also offensive improvements over our the usual 4 and 5 combination.
    3. Our bigs will no longer be blocked into oblivion
    4. This is very close to our best defensive lineup

    I agree that it’s time to see what we have here.

  • @betterfireE I was most intrigued by Graham-Selden-Svi-Diallo-Mickelson. The length of that lineup is crazy. They were altering and pressuring everything! To me this was the all-disruption team for KU.

    But FM-DG-LV-CB-CD could be the all-futures! Though don’t know how long we will hold on to all of them.

  • @JRyman You misunderstood. I was reiterating what you said, saying “what @JRyman said” – you had said “Don’t stop posting now”, and I agreed.

    But I will try not to be a negative Nancy, nonetheless.

  • @HighEliteMajor Ahhh OK no worries. All a good
