We played soft. Didn’t box out. They kept coming up with the long ones and the short ones. i got to play stronger than what I did tonight. They played more aggressive. They wanted it more than we did. Beat us to all the 50-50 balls. We weren’t getting our bodies in there. We didn’t adjust to it. We didn’t match their intensity.
Well, watch the presser of the losing team. That is what you will get. It is player-speak. What else do you expect them to say. They will never say that the other team was just better. No one wants to admit that. I am sure this is not the first time you heard that.
Happens every year. Many of us post frustrations during and immediately after games and criticize players. I understand that (and have been guilty of it) but some take it to the extreme (see Gabe). I feel sorry for the kid, plus I think he has tremendous potential
I think many throw the kids under the bus thinking they are deflecting the heat away from the coach. I’m not sure how some want to run off half the team and turn around and have the same guy that recruited those players recruit their replacements. I’m not sure who all is in on evaluating the talent they recruit but they may want to evaluate the evaluators before we start handing out scholarships. Today is a bad time to discuss the team and coaches as most everyone has a bitter taste in their mouth and post things they will look at tomorrow and wonder what they were thinking. I thought all along that we would be lucky to play .500 ball this year in conference game with our youth and I’m even more concerned now on how we will do next season. WPS
I have voiced opinions on several of our players. That is what I thought happened during a discussion. I want all of our guys to succeed and be great players. They have shortcomings as D1 players in a tough conference. Most players do. I don’t think anyone is intentionally trying to throw them under a bus. Saying we want better players, better coaching and better results is being fans. It’s getting hard to post anything anymore without offending someone.
There is a difference between saying, Gabe needs to cut down on turnovers and work on his shooting, and saying Gabe is a waste, worthless, and should never play, it’s his fault we lost, he sucks, he needs to leave.
Kid is a Razorback and is giving max effort for Razorback Nation, I question how many on here do the same.
