    North Carolina and ISU MBB

    The attached link from Basketball Prospectus shows that North Carolina (Williams) and ISU (McDermott) are challeged with many of the same issues....

    http://basketballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=905

    Similar records and similar team chemistry issues.

    It's a long read...here are the first few paragraphs....

    The question is no longer if North Carolina can repeat as national champions. That would seem to be an extreme long shot.

    Instead, the question is now if the Tar Heels will even qualify for the NCAA Tournament after losing for the fourth time in their last five games Thursday night when they dropped a 74-70 decision at Virginia Tech. North Carolina is now 13-9 overall and 2-5 in the ACC, where it is in 10th place and just a half-game out of last place ahead of Miami (Fla.) and North Carolina State.

    All the losing has left Roy Williams wondering if he has lost his coaching touch and if his players have become uninterested in what is rapidly becoming a lost season.
    “I’ve told them that I have never had to coach concentration and effort as much as I feel like I'm trying to coach that now,” Williams said. “They should be able to supply that. In saying, ‘they' should be able to supply that, I've got to figure out a way to help them get that done. Evidently, I haven't done a very good job of it.”

    Couple more Roy quotes...

    Williams has given his team frequent pep talks this season but they don’t seem to be working. In fact, Williams makes it quite clear he is growing weary of coddling his players.
    “You have to be concerned about their psyche, but also, I get tired of worrying about somebody’s psyche,” Williams said. “Play the dadgum game. That’s what it boils down to. They understand I’m tired of the part.”

    Oh well it's about time Roy has a bad season, he's stolen 4 recruits away from the state of iowa.
    all i can say is there is a god, and god doesn't like Roy f'ing Williams.

    Let me think... he will be the mesiah of UNC when he goes. Then I pray they continue this streak and ISU turns it around and goes dancing all 4 years and UNC does not. Then only then will HB regret his decision.

    nah he just needs to have stadium security toss out everyone from the opposing fanbase who yells something critical of his players. "Don't miss that free throw!"


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    kg it is hard to compare ISU's plight with that of UNC. A season of frustration is a lot easier to tolerate then nearly a decade of mediocrity.

    Just a suggestion, if you're wondering where the problems with the team are coming from.
