  1. Game 18 - MIAMI (OH) REDHAWKS

    ........or the players are not listening to the coaches.
  2. Game 18 - MIAMI (OH) REDHAWKS

    Your point is well taken. But I think it's more than that. They simply show no interest in rebounding. Maybe they are expending all their energy on defense and there's nothing left when it's time to crash the boards. Not trying to make excuses but there has to be SOME reason for it.
  3. Game 18 - MIAMI (OH) REDHAWKS

    Why does this team refuse to rebound? That, along with defensive intensity, is something that they can control and do every time out. Shooting is more hit or miss (pun intended)

    Are you a psychic?
  5. Game 23- PCCC Golden Flushes

    I will now be unable to attend. Not a good way to treat a dwindling fan base.
  6. Game 17- Eastern Michigan

    Great effort on defense, for 2 halves! I am very relieved. I liked Groce's postgame comment that the team was coachable tonight. Let's duplicate the effort at Miami!
  7. Game 16- Northern Illinois Huskies

    I understand. It's a balancing act. I just think there is currently too much focus on the quick fix. Any HS players he might have recruited in his 1st year would become juniors next season. I acknowledge the need to fill gaping holes with transfers but too much reliance on that makes it hard to get off that treadmill.
  8. Game 16- Northern Illinois Huskies

    Agreed. However, I think 'tragic' would be a better word. I wish Groce would abandon the 'quick fix' approach with all these transfers. Too much roster turn-over from last season and it's likely to happen again. No stability. I understand that he has aspirations beyond Akron, and I don't hold this against him, but I think the best route at this point is to start recruiting 4 year players, OF CHARACTER, that can rebuild this program. Not major program rejects and/or JC problem children. If he is indeed the talented coach that we think he is, good things will come. For him and our team. my 2 cents..........
  9. Game 16- Northern Illinois Huskies

    Something is wrong and it may not all be Xs & Os.
  10. Game 16- Northern Illinois Huskies

    Character matters.......above all else!
  11. Are you kidding me? There is no place for this.
  12. Game 16- Northern Illinois Huskies

    Does anyone know Gueye's history at SC? Why did he transfer? Shocking! How was this not stopped before Marc was beaten to unconsciousness?
  13. Game 15. Central Michigan

    I caught the 2nd half of the Iowa / Northwestern game. Iowa started the 2nd half with no defensive intensity. NW ripped off 8 unanswered points in less than 2 minutes (sound familiar?), taking command of a game that was tied at the half. During the ensuing Iowa timeout, their coach demonstrably ripped into his team without calling out anyone in particular. The team responded nicely, playing solid defense, regained the lead, and cruised to a 10 point win. On the road. I found it very refreshing.
