    Default This loss is on you Marlin

    I have been supporter of you this whole time bob, but you blew this game. How do you play a 6 man fricking rotation with a team that is tired as ____. How hard is it to play pj or jd for 2 minutes each in the half? This team had its hands on its knees throughout the second half.

    You just ruined this teams season

    Couldn't overcome loss of Gant and Stove. Miller shot too many threes. He was great inside... Wasted opportunities when Cajuns had a chance to build a lead... Crucial offensive rebounds by UTA in 2nd half. They were crashing boards with big time intent. Last 2 fouls on Stroman were B_11 s h 1 T

    Miller really drives me nuts. He can really be a catalyst on offense but the ball seems to stop moving when he's in the game. He wants the ball on the block and forget it if he gets it outside. I really hope he works on that in the offseason because the team seems to have more issues with him on the court. They bicker more at each other and it usually starts with him complaining about not getting the ball.

    We were within 3 points and the ball with time expiring without Gant and Stove, UTA shooting lights out, terrible officiating, terrible shooting percentage on our part despite plenty of open looks, and we'd just lost Stroman because he dared to go up for a rebound.

    What part of that IS on Marlin?

    Not taking the ball out of Miller's hands. Lack of ball movement all second half. I'm not saying it was on him for the loss but there are things he definitely could have done better.

    I think this one is a good one to call a total team loss. Very little went in our favor today.

    How many free throws did we shoot in the final 11 minutes? We jacked up threes instead of getting to the line.

    Stroman fouled out because we didn't rotate enough guys. Even with Gant and Stove out, stick PJ or somebody in there for a couple minutes.

    We literally forfeited our depth.

    A Bob Marlin coached team will never win the Sun Belt Conference tournament again.

    Couldn't buy a three even in the first half when we were fresh. I was afraid of this after everything we threw up went in yesterday.

    what he said. What is the number one thing we do well? Rebounding (out rebounded by 9). Whats the second best thing we do well? Free throw percentage (81-63% UTA). Our best penetrator to the basket (Stove-out), best defender/rim protector (arguably stove, but probably Gant-out). Our guys had great looks at time that didn't fall, and rebounding is about effort. I don't see how any of this is on Marlin.

    This isn't an advocacy post for his future here..but everyone said the same thing about being a forever mediocre team under Marlin before this season...

    Sorry, no it wasn't! It may have been the team with the best regular season record ever, but it's not close to the best team ever. It's not even arguable! It didn't beat teams like Minnesota, Georgetown and Houston. There have been a hand full of teams with less wins that were way better than this team. Perhaps you aren't old enough to have seen them play.

    That's true. And we're playing zombie basketball for 69th place.

    I wasn't old enough to see them play. All I know is they have the most wins in our history along with best record at home ever.

    Didn't Marlin say a couple of years ago that the only thing that matters is winning the conference tournament?
