    Nothing about offense just standing around?

    Wow, if McD posted some of those comments on this board he would be called out by some posters on here as being embarrassingly negative. It's almost as if our coach seems to think that we've been under performing and that the current level of play is not acceptable.

    Good thing he's saying this stuff in a press conference instead of on a message board or he'd be getting called out as a fair weather fan who was too quick to give up.

    He is saying what a lot of "negative" posters on here have been saying, like myself. That this team is playing terribly. Offense sucks, defense sucks and rebounding is an afterthought.

    I guess he doesn't see that as a problem. I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but McD is yet to say anything at these press conferences to make me feel any better about how things are going at this point.

    What will the team be working on this week? You guessed it…rebounding. “We’re giving up far too many second opportunities,” McDermott said.

    Really? Because if you've read any of the MBB threads over the last week you'd know anytime anyone has been slightly critical of something this team has done, like rebounding poorly they get called out by numerous people for being negative about this team.

    Just watched the presser video on cyclones.com - McD still apprears so "breezy" about things, and shrugs a lot. He says he's frustrated, and they need to improve, but heaven forbid he calls anyone out like Fennelly and KJ do...

    With rebounding comes transition offense, and so they will be able to hide the lack of off ball movement in the halfcourt I guess?

    Re: 12-7 McDermott presser notes..

    Yes, I saw that. I was hoping for something a little more in-depth beyond what your average junior high BB player could observe...

    What more is there to know?

    Either you're doing it, or you're not? The coach realizes it, or he doesn't? They plan to work on it, or they don't?

    You guys want video from practice?

    He could have summed it up by saying - " I just cant coach"
