    Offensive Philosophy is the Culprit

    It's not that players can't execute the offense by not hitting shots. It's that the dribble drive/feed the post/isolation scheme is a joke of an offense. It's a coach's bail out and is usually followed by "we want to be a great defensive unit".
    It takes a lot of work, time, effort and basketball IQ to run say the Villanova 1 in 4 out and work on finding that second cutter. Or to implement a flex offense where spacing and fluidity are important components. I fear this regime will give us more of the same every year.
    It will get you wins against teams with lesser athleticism but not against familiar foes or better competition. I for one loathe watching it.

    I kind of agree with you. I was watching Arizona-Oregon St. last night, and both of those of teams were running a lot more action and set plays in the half court than I've ever seen us do.

    On a side note, Sean Miller was sweating like a pig. Disgustingly sweaty, like Bruce Pearl.

    I agree 100% in all respects.

    Does our coach know how to run or install anything else? Not being a smart ass........really curious b/c our offense is disturbingly horrific at getting the right guys shots in the right spots.

    Dump it to Tyrique or pass the ball around the top of the key and then someone goes one on one trying to create a shot. Thats it.

    But guys, we become so much easier to game-plan against if we run offensive sets. Coach said so himself.

    So what you are saying is that passing the ball aimlessly behind the 3-point line is useless when you have no 3-point shooters. Brilliant!!

    My guess is part of his pitch to get the job was his selling of his ability to get his teams to play a Villanova style of offense. He's pushing and pushing it because he has to validate that claim.

    It's blatantly obvious we can't run that style of offense with this team.

    So you're saying that Goodin and Moore would have made a bunch of those wide open threes on Saturday if X had just run a different offense?
