    I never expected to win 27 games. But I do expect to compete for the postseason every year which we probably won't make this season.

    We should have the roster for that when we have a coach on year NINE.

Just because people aren't satusfied doesn't mean they don't watch or support the team. Marquetti is good but he is not a 1 man wrecking crew like he is being made out to be. If he was that important it would have been said by someone..anyone at least once before he got hurt.
    Once again the problem is the drop off in ability for the players now taking the minutes of Marquetti.

    Mike i played my whole life, i understand it. Im well aware of the problem. We never seem to have answers to any problem that arises,If things don't go perfect for this program they can't accomplish their goals. That is the problem.

    I am in no way ready to write off 2020 when we will have at least 5 new players on the roster. Not going to predict they will be great or terrible. Just saying we have no idea how that group will come together. Taking a wait and see approach. Half of this season remains for now. For things to improve someone beyond the two seniors will have to step up their game.

    Reason for that is simple. Not enough good players. Need to get more of them.

    That's what people have an issue with, if next year is mediocre it will be" we have 5 new players, what do you expect" at some point the head coach needs to own it with a "it's on me, everything is on me and i didn't get it done" I think a lot of the detractors would appreciate that more than constantly hearing of all the circumstances why we can't get it done. 1 magical star aligning season every decade isn't going to cut it IMO. I hope they can turn it around because i think Marlin is a good guy and cares about his players and makes them better people.

    We all know the answer to that and he will have to do a better job in that regard going forward to meet expectations. For this season, a savior is not walking through the door anytime soon. Guys on the current squad need to step up their play. How capable are they of doing so at a significant level is a reasonable question to ask. It may be limited.

    Find a way, adjust, fight, change the game plan, play to their strengths. You aren't replacing Marquetti so don't try to get people to do what he does..let them do what they do...Coach them. Figure it out. I played class B and 5A, both really good programs but we had to do it a lot different at each program. Won district t titles at both..our bench on 5A would have competed for district..clad B we had 3 guys on the bench and 1 couldnt even dribble., find a way

    Oh well, it looks like the only intangible left for any success for this team and this season is COACHING. C'mon coach, get in there and coach up the damn players you have. Here is your chance to EARN your keep.

    Another reason why a college coach gets more leeway than an NBA coach.

    I don't think that is unrealistic.

    NINE is irrelevant though.

    Continuity.

    As soon as players can quit thinking of their new roles, shots will begin to fall.

    If you aren't as talented you have to play a different brand of basketball. We play as if we have the most talent and we don't.

    You don't gain confidence throwing up bricks, have to get them high percentage shots. Play to the players you have strength, we can't depend on Gant to drop half a hundred every game.

    I agree Marlin is extremely consistent. He must think it's the best way for them to learn their roles long-term.

    Yeah, Cook talked about how our guys weren't making a great effort to be in position to defend the 3 point shots. Our color guy is probably going to get in trouble for making those observations.

    That was one of the most disappointing things about last night as a major part of pre game focus was to limit their clean three point looks. Some credit should go to the Panthers as a few of their threes came from pretty far out.
