What a crappy half of basketball. Let’s hope we seize the moment in 2nd half. We are always determined to do it the Hard Way for sure. Never easy.

Game over with almost 4 minutes left. Toledo clearly the better team and my pick to win the MAC this year. Eye test tells me they are the best team. Another hump game that NIU loses. Have not won one in 10 years. Not easy to do. 03-hissyfit03-banghead

I would say the buffalo game was a hump game, just couldnt capitalize with any momentum.

They play like a .500 team, and that is exactly what the record reflects.

Thorpe was on fire in 2nd half. He had 16 pts in the first 9 minutes but zero the rest of the way.

This is the beyond frustrating thing about that.

Toledo coach: 2010-11 season 4-28; since seven seasons above .500, three MAC West titles, three post season appearances (NIT, CBI, CIT)

NIU: 2011-12 season: 5-26; since one season above .500, zero MAC West titles, one post season appearance (Vegas)

It’s unbelievable that eight seasons in and the program is barely playing .500 ball. Toledo also finished 4-28 the year before the current coach was hired so it was just as much of a rebuild as NIU.

Virtually no students. They must not have gotten the memo.

52 - 48 with a T.O. Then Toledo goes on a 12 - 0 or something like that run. Game over.

Offense looked clueless in the first half. 3 for 16 or similar shooting the three for the game. Bradley was 2 - 11 towards the end of the game.

Listened to Monty on the post-game. Said the team didn't do what was planned for the first four possessions.

It is time. Monty seems like a very decent person. But, the team is not good, we are eight years in, and if he admits they aren't listening, well, it is clearly over. This was another wasted opportunity to put on a decent game in front of one of the better crowds of the season. Maybe some people would come back to a future game. Not after this egg.

It is time. Pull the plug.

Now this is really embarassing....WBB attendance on the ROAD in the last three games ... @ BGSU 1,408; @ Buffalo, 2,174, and @ EMU, 2,633. Granted, our WBB team hasn't drawn well, either, but holy roundball, batfolks! Is anyone promoting this with students? Free admission (well, except for that onerous athletic fee), plenty of good seats, and plenty of time to head out for some Sat. nite whoopee afterwards. Weather not even that bad. Here's hoping a weekday nite game will draw (cough, wheeze, sniffle).

Does MM get out like THammock did/does? Does he visit around? Does anyone? Seems to me there's a student rec board, frat-sorority council, student council, etc etc. Plenty of scheduled meetings with the "involved" students.

RE: mbb vs toledo
In attendance...My observations:

-Attendance. There was talk on this board of maybe 3K today. I thought that a bit much and expected a tad over 2K. Actual 1348. Students ..,.shame on you. Without a concerted effort by Coach Hammock or frats it’s non -existent. Further, if you had checked Ticketmaster this morning there was not a ticket to be had in the lower bowl yet...1348. No words.

-Its become all about the 3-pointer. Toledo made 13-30. Many of them (at least in the first thre quarters well- guarded by NIU I thought.) Huskies 4-18. That’s 27 points right there.

-Overall not a bad game by NIU. Only 6...count em, SIX turnovers. That’s unheard of.

-Thorpe. Need to feed him from the tip not wait til second half. Instead we feed Bradley who goes 2-11.

-MM is a nice guy I’m sure but I see nothing as far as a “plan”. It’s just 5 guys on the floor like Co Rec ball at Chick Evans back in the day.

-That being said...Toledo is a better overall team.

That is all.

I counted 5 students in the student section. Our students are beyond lame.

All kinds of empty seats in the lower bowl.

There is just zero atmosphere in there. Nobody cheers, nobody stands for the fight song. I was so excited to go to the game today and I was asleep by halftime.
