    Should we be worried?

    After today's game, what can we expect from our team?

    Re: Should we be worried?

    Depends what your expectations were. People who thought we were an NCAA team (some were even saying they EXPECTED it) should definitely be worried.

    Re: Should we be worried?

    I will be surprised if this team even makes the NIT. No effort, and bad/inexperienced coaching.

    I wouldn't worry until next year.

    NIT is my goal for this season. At least it's a step forward.

    I don't think we need to panic yet...this team is still learning to play together.

    I was worried after Drake.... I jumped the band wagon a little early I guess.

    Re: Should we be worried?

    Next year he'll have no missing pieces so that will tell us a lot about his long term future. I feel like at the very least, we need to see a team that plays with great effort and intelligence next year. I'm not even saying I need to see them make the tourney next year, but I do expect to see some big improvements over this season.

    Re: Should we be worried?

    We are playing no better than last year's team. Last year's team might have outhustled this team. Lutz had them rolling.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Don't hold your breath. I've been waiting for something to click with these guys and I'm beginning to doubt it's ever going to happen.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Defenitely worried:

    We are:
    Lazy
    Only play defense when we have to
    Don't seem to have a clear offensive identity
    The players don't seem worried when they aren't playing well
    No leadership...I could go on,but it is not fun to watch. This game should have been 20 ++ easy and was not.

    Re: Should we be worried?

    I was hoping for at least a better season than the last, which is the minimum I feel like you could ask of a team. It is starting to look gloom if we have one more non-conference loss.

    Oh I agree completely. I'm saying if we make it to the NIT, it would be quite the accomplishment.
