    Doc Sadler

    Seriously how big of a hire was this guy? I know it is probably a mix of the players styles and his philosophies, but our defense has looked so much better this year than years past. I love seeing out players get hands in the faces of shooters, the good help D, and the active hands. I hope we can keep this guy on our staff for a couple more years!

    No doubt a great fire. He has always coached toughness. NU didn't have the best athletes, but they were always a headache to play.

    Re: Doc Sadler

    I completely agree that this part is getting overlooked. Our problem last year was our inability to get key stops. We had Babb to lock down their best player, but it just seemed like in the games we lost we couldn't string together stpos. This team is so much better defensively. Last nights defensive gameplan worked to a "t", with hard doubles on the post and great rotations to stop the drive and make them shoot 3s. The best part about this team is when we have our offensive lulls (which seem to happen early in each game) our defense can pick it up and keep us in it.

    Yes I loved the game plan last night. Once the initial guy doubled down, a secondary defender immediately switched defenders to take over when the double came from so that the post man did not know who was open based on who doubled down on him. Absolutely genius!

    I'm pretty sure that Coach Mann (8-mile Corn!!) is responsible for the defensive game plans. Gotta believe Doc is affecting the D as well.

    Yep. They are working off each other for sure. No doubt it was a home run hire though and really overlooked.

    This is correct. It also helps our new players are much better defenders than the ones they replaced

    Re: Doc Sadler

    I thought that Fred was the real ramrod of this outfit. My understanding was the assistant coaches were just helping out so they could get a good seat to watch the games in Hilton. Ever since Fred got here its been too tough to get a good seat in Hilton.

    I'm guessing a key word is missing from this sentence.

    No question Coach Doc Sadler has made a big impact with this team! The defensive tenacity shows.
