RE: "Haase has no clue"
I've thought this at times this season. While recruiting seems fine we have to remember XCMD recruiting was terrible so any job Hasse would've done would be praised. Not sure about his coaching tbh leaves something to be desired.

As far as coaching goes, I think Haase has done a pretty decent job. I really haven't seen many people question the X's & O's of his game plan. He definitely emphasizes crashing the boards, as you could see all year long.

To me, he ran a pretty solid offense, our team just couldn't shoot the ball. I can't even begin to count the number of uncontested point blank shots I saw us miss this year. Outside of going out there and doing it himself, I really don't know what some people expect from him.

Very true. We could've probably won 2-3 more games just by making our layups.

Other than not really running set offensive plays, not switching to zone early enough in the season, and not calling timeouts during the bad side of a big run...I haven't seen anyone criticize his X's and O's on this board.

RE: "Haase has no clue"
Nobody's offense looks good when you can't hit water if you fell out of a boat. I've never seen a team just fall off a cliff shooting like we have.

If I knew how to fix it, I'd be the one making $800K or whatever.

Very true. We could've probably won 2-3 more games just by making our layups.

And another 2-3 by just making 70-75% of our free throws.

The reason I've been so positive about Haase is I don't really feel like we are that far off. Haase isn't the one missing layups and free throws. I understand that coaching is a part of that, but ultimately it's about finding guys who can consistently put the ball in the bucket, and I believe he is doing that. I also look at the development of the freshmen this year, and I view that as a big positive.

RE: "Haase has no clue"
My love affair with our freshmen evolved as the year went on. First it was mehinti, then it was watts, then it was Madison. I'm excited to see how they progress next year and mix in with our new comers.

I think Madison has earned time at the 4. He is a little short for that position but he is a bulky guy and looks at home playing around the rim. He had a pretty dunk last night too

RE: "Haase has no clue"
I'd have to agree with a lot of this. Most of what I question about Haase's game coaching is about things like his time out philosophy. The players give good effort, the overall intensity is good. I think that the basics of both his offense and defense look fine.

When we have two guys who miss two, three, four point blank shots until the defense finally scratches out a rebound, I'm not sure that's a coaching problem. Free throws, that's another one... I know that they can be coached and practiced, but I can't help but feel that the single biggest factor in improving them is the player deciding he was damn well going to get better and shooting hundreds of them.

The senior class had a bunch of guys who were good team players, but they were more role players than lead dogs. There was no Paul Delaney type who would just refuse to lose and put the team on his shoulders, or if there was that guy he didn't have the skills to actually do it when it was needed. The closest we had was Chad, but he wasn't quite up to that. If he'd had an AJ to feed him, that would have made him much more effective, and that lack was the single biggest factor in our being mediocre this season.

I believe Rob wanted to be that type leader but his skill set on offense limited him from being that as a total player.

No one should ever question Rob's heart & fight though.

RE: "Haase has no clue"
What a season, 1st thanks to our seniors, you represented UAB well, 2nd wish you guys could have went out with better results, but you all will do well in life.
3rd, that wasnt XCMDavis team this season, there were only 3 players from Davis era 4 if counting Moton. And I believe only the fans say that and the coach and team know they are Hasse team.

Faz, Rucker recruited by Davis arrived with Hasse. CJ, Frazier, Rideau, Hasse recruits, Mehenti, Madison and Watts Hasse recruits.
If you are keeping count thats 8 players, the 3 that some here seems to be bashing as Davis recruits have played and won many games as BLAZERS leave it alone, they were our players, playing for our team.

Coach Hasse had a enough experience on this team to win, and he did win and could have won more, but who among us would have said this team would have shot freethrows so badly, shot the 3 so badly, and yes turned the ball over so much and at critical times.

In today's CUSA winning 20 games is not the mark we should shoot for,heck we were 2 games away from winning 20 and if the season had ended the way it did in UTEP, it still would have been disppointing in many ways.

UAB underperformed, point the finger in any direction and you are bound to hit the target as to who and why this team played the way it did.

For years some here have bashed XCMD and deservingly so in some cases saying XCMD yak yak yak yak, that is so tiring, my team and coach played last night in UTEP not some XCMD PLAYERS.

I cheer for the Team and my Coach who ever the Coach is at the time, I hate it for the team, but they were good stewards for UAB and the future Blazers.

We are moving into a new era, UAB is shooting for THE DOMINATION of Conference USA, looking for Titles and Turnys wins, Trophys NCAA APPEARANCE etc... and I believe we have the right Coach to accomplish that.

Go Blazers.
