shooting 26%, 13% from 3.

Unbelievable...I remember thinking that we were going to really be in for a treat this season back when we beat Iowa St. Dare I say, I envisioned us being a Sweet 16 squad again...or better.

That's the level this squad should have realistically been competing for, but the reality is they've fallen off a cliff since the CUSA tournament when the core group were sophomores. There were even signs when they were winning all those games that they weren't as good as they should've been.

I didn't think Haase was a particularly great coach. I don't think Ehsan is even on his level and isn't a very good coach at all.

The program is in a pretty bad place right now.

Coach said that the team did a “Boot Camp” all week running suicides until they almost threw up.

That was a tough game to sit through especially the first half. We seemed to be shooting well in warmups but not so much after that. About the only place we shot the ball well was FT line & that's not saying much.

These players are not an embarrassment but this team sure is. And that fault lies with Ehsan. This team has FAR too much talent to lose to the teams we are losing to. At home no less.

For whatever reason, Ehsan doesn’t instill the passion and aggression this team needs. I’ve seen glimpses of a great team when they play aggressively but those plays are few and far between. And actually seem to be decreasing in number. It’s as though the team already gave up on the year.

I’m hoping for a win of any sort against Rice. That’s a sad statement given where I expect this program to be and the fact we are playing at home.

Maybe he should take them bowling instead.

Definitely looked like they had dead legs in first half....

But wait, some guy who has never coached in his life said they were tired.

LOL

If they did suicides last week, they need to do some more tonight as a penalty for playing like crap.

Perry is the only one that played worth a crap.

Gene would have put in five new guys at about the 18:00 mark, even if he had to send in a Golden Girl and a manager.
