Re: McDermott admits "huge mistake" from the Drake game
I agree. Should McD have talked to the officials about the clock issue? Yes. But in the end, I think it's almost better for this team to have lost this game. For the people that watched it, you saw Drake out-play us for a majority of the game except the first 5 minutes of the first half and the last 5 minutes of the second half. McD can use this game as a huge teaching tool to show the guys they can't just show up for 10 minutes in a game and expect to win no matter who you're playing. This is especially true against a solid, senior-dominated team like Drake. Now if we would have won this game it would have been a great comeback, but I don't think the team would learn much from it other than they can turn on and off their intensity and effort throughout the game and still win.
