    The freshmen though I wouldn't fully understand. Freshman usually dont make a huge impact at X unless they are really special.
    I think if you can't get on the floor for a bad team, you generally leave. I'd be surprised if more than one of Harden, Kennedy or James return. And I would not be at all surprised if all three leave.

    Rebounding is still the glaring issue for me.

    That's an effort stat and after I brought it up a few games ago it's only gotten worse.

    Depaul got 41% of their misses last night. That's an absurd number.

    This team's issues start with defense and rebounding.

    You can win a lot of games with an offense in the top 55.

    It's hard to win any with a defense outside the top 200.

    Even Scruggs & Naji are more likely to turn the ball over than make individually forced plays.
    No. That's my point.

    If you want to see us beat DePaul 6 weeks ago you may want to watch this.. There is a little difference in spacing

    Watch our guys and name the last player to do a head fake and get the defender off his feet. I see a team lacking basic basketball IQ and fundamentals. Most of that is coaching..........
    This is spot on. The "weave" at the top of the 3 point arc makes me throw up every time. That is 10 shot clock seconds wasted....for what? A late jack

    But honestly I am not worried about any decommits. I get being worried by worst case scenarios given how bad this season has turned out but I dont think most recruits decommit because their team had a bad season the year before they go there. They committed to Steele not Mack. I feel ok about the recruits staying committed.
    I'm worried about transfers...

    I’m not saying Travis is without blame but a lot of this is a result of not having any shooting. We’re easy to defend because Paul is the only person that can hit a shot outside the paint. Q can’t even make uncontested layups. The weave helps us open driving lanes. We make the extra pass but the extra pass is to a guy that can’t shoot so what does it matter? Head fakes don’t matter cause no ones a threat to shoot etc.

    The basketball iq is definitely at a premium and that’s definitely on coaching

    I hear you. I'm thinking about Wednesday night in particular. 8:30 pm start, which you know full well means 8:45 or worse. I HATE those late night work night games anyway, but with a very real chance at a bad loss, I'm strongly considering just watching the game on TV. That way, when the team checks out, so can I.

    I need the "Why should I make the trip to Cintas to watch this level performance, under these conditions" pep talk.

    That said, fully planning on going to see the Villanova game.

    Well a friend gave me a strong pep talk and Iím at Cintas. That talk including a ticket to the Lookout club area helped...
