    When you say no excuses after that what are you expecting?

    Marked improvement.  Top 4 in the league.  Unless we start all freshman and sophomore (then I want to be in every game) . 

    I don't want to hear the excuse- we are getting better . After this year.  Excuses are like ___holes everyone has one.  You fill in the blank. 

    Think Browns good years. I'm hoping like everyone after that Killings can take us to another level. 

  2. My two cents are:

    We are bad.  I did not expect us to be this bad. 

    However,  Killings was hired only a short time ago . No real time to recruit last year.  We have 1 good recruit but I expect more.  He did not have time to recruit last year but I'm hoping that changes this time around.  

    I am willing to give me a full pass this year (I don't like it) however next year will be a full year in his system with his own guys. No more excuses after that .

    And for clarity, they are still showing an extreme ability to avoid putting the ball in the hoop tonight.

    That said, the defense has been really really good tonight. Forcing turnovers, keeping KState off balance. My original point was that they can't possibly be this bad offensively all season. Some shots will start to fall. Keep the defensive intensity up and they will break out of the shooting slump.

    So it does not take a rocket scientist to figure this out :

    -they can't beat you off the dribble

    -they can't post you up

    -they can't shoot from the outside 

    -they can't hit a free throw 

    so I don't see that magically changing .

    You can say that all you want, and so far this season you are right, but I still don't believe that is who they are. 

    I hope I'm not right either !!!! Lol. But unfortunately I am.  This teams margin of error is so small . I will watch every game but I have general college basketball friends watch these games and they all say this team is boring and unwatchable. Completely objectively they are right.

    Almost gametime. Little chatter.

    Not expecting a win tonight, but I'd love to see some more shots fall. I've seen all the games this year except the first win as it wasn't televised, but they've shown improvement on shot selection each game. Sooner or later they will start falling. Why not tonight?

    Not trying to be mean but no . They don't have the guys who can put the ball in the basket . They average 60 points a game.  Bad.  Very very bad shooting team

    There are some that are going to complain no matter what. Not the best game, but nice to get win number 1 of the season for the team and coach. 



    Not one person complained they won . Not 1.  I'm glad they won.  People are stating the team did not play well against another terrible team.

    Some people are ok with being below average.  Or mediocre.  It's tough to argue with facts. 

    Some people where predicting 20 plus wins. 

    Hopefully they improve and the underclassmen improve and take a step. Again glad they won.

    What two starters are we missing? They have a pretty good big coming next year and I don’t think recruiting is an issue right now with Nealy, Reddish, and Little as freshman recruits aren’t too bad. 

    I would say Drumgoole and Amica. I love Albany atheltics but I would say our best 2 players have been seniors and will not be coming back next year.

    Wait, we didn't lose by 10?

    Glad we won . We are terrible.  There is no way anyone I'm their right mind would say we aren't.  We MAY be missing 2 starters but I will say this :

    Horton- regressed 

    Doles- regressed 

    Champion- regressed 

    There is not arguing that.  They were all here last year.  We are 20 percent through the season.  Really really really need to recruit.

    Need to get Amica healthy and sit Horton...kid plays hard but he's an awful basketball player. Neely continues to impress....a competent D1 PG would make a world of difference on this team.

    Amica has not played at all . Not the in exhibition or any of the games.  Killings continues to say he is day to day.  There is NO WAY he is day to day. Amica is obviously hurt . Maybe really hurt.  It has been weeks and he is not on the floor.
