#105660 Re-calibrating expectations on the season...

Posted by Clickclack on Yesterday, 12:38 PM

We probably had these same conversations during conference play in each of our conference championship years.

 

Just finished watching this, if anyone wants to evaluate our play:

 

Who are these guys...???

Cochran played 3 minutes in the Maine blowout. If we didn't see more of him in that game, it's hard to imagine seeing more of him now.
 
Speaking of the Maine game, I'm not sure why Stire, Campbell and Cremo all played over 30 minutes in that game with the Bing game right around the corner. There is something weird going on with the bench.
 
As a group, this team should ask itself how Greig Stire played 35 minutes against Maine on Saturday and then did everything short of lighting himself on fire tonight to help win this basketball game without much help from anyone else.

Which is why I have such a new found reapect for Piekell and Becker winning all those regular season championships. It truly does take a lot of not only coaching, but managing the team through the grind.
 
I have wondered sometimes if it isn't philosophical.
 
Pikiell and Becker tend to play a larger rotation of players which stands up to the rigors of the regular season better. Sometimes, in the pressure of the postseason, their offenses get shutdown and someone needs to make a play and because they play so many players, their system sometimes comes apart.
 
CB seems to play a (ahem) tighter rotation and sometimes rides guys into the ground so they drop some regular season games they probably shouldn't and keeps them out of the regular season hunt. It does, establish a sense of ownership among your starters and there's no question over who is going to take big shots. They win tournament games when it looks like they shouldn't because the alpha dogs have put in their miles.
 
Just a thought.
Agreed. At this point its got me thinking what the better philosophy is.

The one that a few years ago went back to back to back.

Haven't seen really much of Fruscio and I don't really know anything about his talent level,
but his energy and enthusiasm I like.  Wonder if putting him in for a few minutes here and there 
to hound some of the opponents guards would be an option?  Just to harass a bit, run around
like a madman for a few.

Ummm, never mind.

Lmao... Haha

It's all crap...this generation, that generation...Life has a way of teaching its lessons. You either learn to bust your ass, work hard, push forward or you don't and not reap the rewards of hard work.

When did the 'everyone gets a trophy' mentality begin?
Wasn't in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s....

If, in fact, pansyism took hold and blossomed out of control,
did it start somewhere around that time?

Haven't the millenials been labeled 'generation snowflake'?

 

I don't know if I agree that this team is soft...to me they look like some adversity hit and they are trying to find themselves. These are the times you dig deep...get mad...go through a wall for a win. 

 

I think that's what CB was trying to say..they need to get mad...

And I appreciated the comments about Stire and Charles.  They do bring it.

 

Have you lost your mind?

I found it fascinating to hear about the bench...that it's not a talent thing but they just aren't there yet. We all clamor for more bench but apparently CB doesn't think they are ready to really help right now and is using them in very short spurts to rest starters. Need to somehow get 2 or 3 kids to step in for 10 minutes a game.
