If we play like this against Murray St, Illinois St, or Bradley we will lose by 40.

I think there's more cheerleaders and band members, at this game than fans in the stands.

Not good but in year one of a new coach...it certainly isn't unexpected. Road games are going to be very tough for this team - having only 9 guys is really devastating to really both ends of the floor (mainly the lack of big guys).

We need much more out of Frederking in these road games and DC and Kuhlman cannot pick up these cheap fouls and remove themselves from the game. Hall didn't give much of anything...which can't happen if this team wants to win.

But honestly guys, it is what it is...there is a reason they are picked last and there is a reason teams don't usually do well in the first year under a new coach. Keep the faith, support the guys, and enjoy the bright spots. There will be some, but we're going to have to put up with some very ugly moments (like tonight).

Agreed. For the first time in years I really can see a light at the end of the tunnel. I can be patient and I look forward to the rest of this season. We will have good days this year and greater ones next year.

We looked really bad tonight. Just traded baskets the 2nd half. I'm not so sure we are competing like we are capable of. Maybe I'm wrong and our talent level is not what I thought it would be. Two bad games in a row.

I know there will be games we play lights out and there will be games that we play like this.

My concerns are with John Hall and Shamar Givance. John Hall has played very poorly these past two games. He must be more productive that what he’s shown. My concern with Givance is playing time. Why not start him and ride him this season to develop him on the fly. He’s out future at PG, so why not develop him?

My next game starting lineup:
Givance - PG
Hill - SG
Riley - SF
Hall - PF
Chatkevicius - C

2nd unit:
Feehan - PG
Frederking - SG
Newton - SF
Kuhlman - PF/C

I am patient and looking ahead to conference play and the years to come under the new staff which I think is going to do a great job.

Agreed. Also, if this continues, we may get blown out in a Thursday MVC tourney game. Hope they prove me wrong by that time.
