    Thomas should not have been starting over Morris

    Things are much more fluid when Monte is out there. Ever notice the slow starts and then Monte comes in and things pick up. I get frustrated with Thomas doesn't put up open 3 looks before the defense closes on him. Catch and shoot dude. He gets a little lost on defense at times also. Matt will be a great player for us some day. Right now he is playing like a tentative freshman and Monte is playing a step above.

    Yeah, one loss and rip on the true freshman. I bet Fred knows way more than any of you trolls that want to sit behind your computer and play expert coach.

    Hey, that's a new thought that no one's ever thought of before.

    Re: Thomas should not have been starting over Morris

    The amount of minutes he plays is more important than if he starts or not. He didn't have a good game today but the 12 minutes he played was fair. He is inconsistent and only a freshman. Next game he might look a lot better.

    To be fair, people have been ripping on Thomas throughout the first 14 wins as well. Apparently, Fred has no idea what the best starting lineup is.

    Re: Thomas should not have been starting over Morris

    Obviously Fred know what he is doing and sees what he can do in practice everyday, and Thomas has still earned that starting spot but you can see that when he is not hitting shots early that his minutes dwindle and doesn't play much in 2nd half anymore. I really like the lineup with Morris in so we can post Kane

    Not really because of the loss, nor do I think Matt lost us the game but he looks pretty lost and tentative.

    Re: Thomas should not have been starting over Morris

    Monte is a freshman also out plays Matt most of the time , Matt is going to be ok but needs to play his role , not a starter

    Fire Fred. Here are the issues he's caused...

    - starting Thomas
    - too few losses and postgame meltdowns
    - too high of ticket prices
    - parking lot debacle
    - student ticket shortage
    - concession stands too busy

    Its not like this is the first time its come up. Thomas may get there someday but its conference season, we cant afford to have him doing nothing for us at this point in the year.
