    This is not where i wanted to be right now

    After watching Cals first few games and having UNI at home i honestly thought we would be sitting at 9-0 right now with a win over a top 25 team. I have been to most games and I see myself asking...is Coach Mac doing all that he can? is he doing a good job? and so far this season my answer is NO he has yet to have a win over a team he shouldnt of beaton and to me that is upsetting. If we lose this friday i think he could be on the Hot seat.

    Damnit. I've been avoiding the men's forum (with the requisite post loss negativity). But you tricked me by posting this in the women's forum.

    We better be ready to play 40 minutes then because it will be close and we do not do well at close.

    The part that drives me nuts is we have 9-0 talent. I don't think he needs to lose Friday to be on a hot seat. He should be already. If he loses friday he should be on a gone seat.
    He'll probably get another extension at year's end. That would make sense.

    Re: This is not where i wanted to be right now

    Freaking get rebounds and drive to the hoop for good buckets or get fouled. And yes, the seat is very hot right now.

    Here is how to fix everything though:

    Erase everything negative that has gone on this year by winning the next 4 games before the Duke game. I mean, absolutly change this team's motivation and drive. That is.....rebound, play some D, hustle....dive for the ball and drive to the hole. Puts us at 10-3. WIN that DUKE game....and everyone begins to believe again. Could happen. (I am hoping this "scenario" happens....and everyone can get excited again.....and the team can use this early "failure" as fuel for the remainder of the season...and help us win some tight ballgames.)


    Obviously, with they way this team has been managed.....and their current "effort" on the court......my guess is this.......we lose the Bradley game for some reason (oh wait, GMac can't beat MVC teams....pathetic) and the Duke game is terribly embarrasing.....and we still see this guy not panning out as a good coach. Thus, a dismal season will ensue. (I HOPE this doesn't happen.)

    Re: This is not where i wanted to be right now

    The way you judge the way a game is coached that doesn't have something unforseen happening (guy getting injured or tossed or something) is sometimes as simple as the following.

    Pretend that the two teams are scrimmaging with no coaches and no referees and are calling their own fouls and figure who wins. Sometimes the obvious answer is scary in its future implications like when we lost to South Dakota State.

    Re: This is not where i wanted to be right now

    I thought we would be 7-2 right now so not that bad...unfortunately we dont look like the team I thought we would so who knows from here on out. Hope a full week to practice and dead week gets the kinks out. Rebounding will fix a lot of the problems

    Re: This is not where i wanted to be right now

    I'm beginning to think that Mac needs to get these guys to believe in themselves; get themselves some confidence. I think they are thinking too much or trying to think too much. Mac may know the game very well but he doesn't need to get all of his knowledge into their heads. He needs to work a little more on where their heads are rather than where their bodies are on the floor.

    Re: This is not where i wanted to be right now

    Luckily for us, Iowa won't be a great offensive rebounding team.

    If we lose 2 more non-conference games, our NCAA tourney hopes are dead. Duke is a loss, so if we drop another we shouldn't, look out.

    Re: This is not where i wanted to be right now

    I'm not too down yet, I don't think we've lost to a bad team but not winning 2 out of 3 UNI/NW/Cal could come back to haunt us later on this year. IMO CB is the most disappointing thing abotu the team so far, he needs to show the ability to carry us in big games, otherwise we have shot at getting a big win against one of the top dogs in the big 12.
