i'll continue to support this team and watch them until my heart stops, but tonight was pretty painful. fortunatley i've learned to handle it year round with the cubs, vikings, raptors, and cyclones consistently putting up similar performances.

We have no lock down defenders. Our D is one of the best in the league.
I like our defense, but this is completely untrue. Our defensive efficiency (points allowed per 100 possessions) is 7th in the league. Our offensive efficiency is dead last. Some people don't understand why we are 1-6; it's really not that hard to understand.
Fact: you can't win with average defense and mediocre offense.
Fact: you CAN win with poor defense and stellar offense (ala wayne morgan)
No, you can't. When we went to the NCAA in 2005, we played very good defense mostly because our guards could take chances because they had Homan in the middle to save them. The next season when we didn't have a force in the middle, our zone was terrible.
I think DG takes some unnecessary heat. Buckley played for a minute and had 2 turnovers. Petey played the point 1 time down the court and he got picked clean for an easy lay up. We simply do not have another option at PG.
This is where I'm at as well. DG takes a lot of guff. He and Brackins don't exactly have a lot of help on this team.
