I for one am looking for forward to the much needed adjustments we'll hopefully see in the second half.
I assumed we'd be ceding points to Appel in the paint but she's killing us. There were several opportunities where Lacey was at the freethrow line and Appel was making her move across the lane. Dive down and knock it away already!

Are you really that sensitive? There's being a dreadful coach/player in general and having a dreadful moment or a dreadful game. No one here is saying the BF sucks as a coach. They're just saying our team's performance this half is lackluster and that our strategy is not working. And to be perfectly honest, letting a girl drop 27 on you in one half is dreadful. I don't think anyone in that locker room would disagree with that assessment.
Agree. As Lawson said in the studio, the problem is letting her catch the ball that close to the basket without doubling her, and exposing our defender on an island.
It sounds like a lot of you are settling for the beating we're taking right now. I'm friends with a lot of these girls and have played pick up games and stuff with them, and I can assure you they aren't happy about this. I've been in practice when Bill has gotten upset and seen how truly scary that guy can be. I'm not giving up on them for a second or settling for how this is going, and I know from being friends with some of the players that they aren't going to give up. No one in that locker room is going to settle, so we as fans shouldn't either.
Cheering on the team is different from settling for this result... I can accept the fact we are in the elite 8, and we are playing bad. I'm noting going to go all out and be critical about the coaching.
Coach said it... We have to keep shooting, and get rebounds. We have not played our type of ball and some of that reason is because Stanford is good.
