    Somehow it does seem to work out that way, doesn’t it?

    Welp. So much for starting Jack Nunge.
    Apparently falling behind by 6 or 8 in the ďFirst WarĒ isnít the problem.

    I guess Coach sees a different game than the rest of us.

    Always bothers me he doesn't call time when the team comes our flat at the beginning of halves. Regroup and call a play we can score with.

    He’s either clueless, in denial or he thinks the fans are stupid. He’s one hell of a politician

    Orrr, he is so damn stubborn that he is determined to prove that Freemantle is a 5, no matter what. (Eye Roll)

    More stubbornness. Mind boggling.

    Someone with more desire than I, please go back and watch each game and let’s find out if Steele if full of shit or not. I tend to think he’s wrong with what he said but I wouldn’t swear by it until I went back and looked. Then if he is we can tweet the info to Baum and asking him to call out or at least ask Steele about it. I would be fascinated to know if Steele is way off and have someone present him with the facts and ask about it.

    In our losses:
    Down 3-10 to ISU at the U16
    Up 13-9 on Nova
    Tied 5-5 with Nova
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.

    DePaul down 10-5
    Creighton down 11-7
    Nova 5-5
    Butler 5-5

    Marquette 10-10

    Where i have really noticed it is in the last three games and this bears that out. Itís not even about just looking at the slow starts, itís the plus minus for each player the last few games and as noted previously, hunterís is absolutely terrible. So why is he starting, Steele? I wonder what freeís is ?
