Looks like they’ve quit...
No one wants to play... so much precautionary sitting... sad way to close out the season.

Geez, we need some dogs.

RE: Looks like they’ve quit...
I don’t agree at all. I believe we have lost our identity. Are we playing uptempo, are we playing more half court or something in between. Are we pressing, switching or what? Who are we switching on and when? We just look lost and like we have no idea who we are or what we want to do.

It is simple IMO. The system is way too complex for college kids, especially college kids accustomed to AAU ball. How many layups and wide open threes did we give up because we were confused on whether we were switching or not? How often does our offense look like guys just standing around and eventually a basic ball screen with a half hearted roll to the basket. We just have no identity and are majorly confused on how to run the system.

I agree. The kids look lost too often and are making poor decisions. And other teams know how to shut our running game down, plus when you don't rebound you can't run. I think we need to be a running team like we were early in the season, I beleive it gives us the best shot at winning. If we keep up the defence and can improve our rebounding a fast pace will help us. Unleash rthe Kraken. We still out-talent most teams.

Down 9 late and we tie it up. The sure sign of quitters. This place has a dozen psychos, literally the difference between a very good board, and incoherent trash like this post.

RE: Looks like they’ve quit...
I don’t agree. I was ready to post about how proud I was of Harris and lomax willing the team to a win. They played their ass off. USF made shots they haven’t made all year. Precious was in foul trouble, we really missed malcom today. We lost on the boards. Maurice is so soft every team we play attacks him the moment he enters the game and he lets guys 6 inches shorter box him out of the lane. Honestly, after everything this team has been through no one should be overly disappointed. The one thing we do need is a great x and o guy. Our turnover tendencies and lack of set plays kill us in close games.

Go tigers

They are all young, some of them are disillusioned, many are determined, they all are trying to find a way through this, don’t be an idiot, be a fan.

We will turn the corner.

Makes me long for the days when players just played through screens. Get back to basic college ball and maybe call for a zone occasionally when we can't hang with man to man, just saying...

Anyone who thinks or says otherwise is simply being obtuse.

Eff off with that crap and stop being such a homer. No one is bashing the team or the coaches. Objective observation is not your strong suit here. That's you and the other happy clappers go to, whenever someone makes a valid observation you immediately start in with the insults. I've probably been a fan longer than you so don't impugn my loyalty because I or anyone else states what they've observed. If someone comes here and simply starts trashing the team or coaches, go for it because they deserve it. But this aint that hoss.

Not likely this year. But like every other down season we've endured I'll be here cheering them on for the next season.

Down 9 with under 3 minutes left, tie the game with 1:33 left. Conclusion...we quit.
