Have not gotten over the butt whipping we took from Butler and their first year Head Coach!! Embarrassed?
How can we get beat by 20 on the boards and anyone think we realistically had a chance to win? ESPN had Butler plus .6 rebounds per game versus opponents… But 20??
20 possessions is a lot. A whole lot. Give 20 extra possessions to my 8 yr old daughter and she could win the game just by cheerleading and playing the starters a lot. You didn’t think their guards were going to cough it up that much, did you?? Butler guards??
Just wondering how you get beat that bad on the boards? Wonder if the Hogs emphasize rebounding in practice?
Fundamentals should come in to play somewhere, shouldn’t they? These questions are not rhetoric.
My friend, who is a former basketball coach, told me we gave up 11 layups or dunks on the half court. What if he exaggerated and it was only 8…OM Goodness.
Then he asked me why we never see MA pick up a dry erase board during timeouts? We can find the answer to that one if we look hard enough into the stat …points after timeout. What is the name of that stat? i want to look up our rating on that one.
Still frustrated but what the heck we are getting what we hired, aren’t we? One and out is good enough, correct? Scotty and TJ need to get us great/superior/NBA one and done type 1st rounders for us to compete at a high level with that preparation and execution.
Well it is obvious that Gafford’s stock went down, but was it his fault. Did you see any HI/LO with Shooter on Ball side actions? Did we get him the ball on time when he was open??
And here is huge question., HUGE…does Gafford improve in this system, if on the outside chance he decides to stay another year?
Last question, do you really think we will be better next year?
