    Saint Louis University

    I am from and live in the St. Louis area and a lot of my friends went there. Its funny how the papers and the fans are looking at the ISU lost as their bad loss and how that hurts their tournament resume.

    How a seasoned coach Rick Majerus can get more out of less than McDermott

    Re: Saint Louis University

    If SLU had they freshman, Cody Ellis, for the ISU game, the Billikens might have won that game. He has made a huge difference since January 1.

    Have you been to SLU's new arena? Unbelievable!

    Yep, exactly. Look at teams like Davidson too, when they almost went to the Final Four. Besides Curry, they didn't really have anyone who was GOOD. Their PG was pretty good, Richards, but nothing spectacular. When you face very good teams, such as Kansas, you need more than just one amazing player to win. They didn't have that, but they were well coached and they almost made the Final 4.

    Coaching in NCAA matters a ton because 99% of these players will NEVER even put on an NBA uniform. The NBA, coaching might not matter as much because the guys are so good, every single one of them is almost automatic in some fashion.

    In college? Not so much..this is where coaching comes in. You can't expect to acquire five amazing parts of a watch that when put together randomly they magically work amazingly well. You have to put them together perfectly well. Just like with players, just because you have five amazing guys doesn't mean you're going to be amazing and just because you have five unheard of guys doesn't mean they're going to suck. It's all about coaching..

    Yeah.
    Because those Missouri state, Bowling Green, George Washington losses look really good. Oh and the 30 point loss against Richmond is a reall good showing too. They have bigger issues to worry about than losing to ISU keeping them out of the tourney.

    Really? He is a good coach but I think he has only coached under Mac, I wonder who taught him about coaching.

    At this point, I am starting to bet it was a heavy dose of NBA Jam as a kid.

    That only teaches a guy about pro ball. These are college kids.

    Mac has won at every level he has coached at but this one. He is not the first coach that didnt win after the move up and wont be the last. Him not winning at ISU doenst mean he isnt a good coach.
