They think what the fux it is only TulanH/

Why did our AD not object as soon as schedule announced and get the H/He flipped ?

Why does he not get AAC to understand MG is annual and give the future dates ?

Mostly Dannens fault .
Temple certainly wouldn't have wanted a home game yesterday. The point is there is no sense in trying to compete with SB Sunday.

I think we can forget the NIT talk. Team is significantly improved over last year, but still a ways to go. Must improve the talent depth on the roster.

I agree that this team needs some more talent, but winning this game without Melvin Frazier was near impossible. Even with that, they almost pulled it off. It was an outstanding college basketball game with both teams going on runs and trading the lead. The outside shooting slump Reynolds has been in compounded the problem and they fell short to a team that's playing well right now.

At what point do you start playing younger guys for next year? TU basically played 6 players yesterday. Reynolds is gone and Frazier may be as well. Desperately need interior defense and rebounding, time to give some of the freshmen bigs some time?

I like MD but I cannot see anyway this team gets to the tourney (never mind the NIT) over the next few years.

Outside of Daniels the other young guys are projects. We really only play with about 7 guys each night. Foul trouble or injury and we can’t overcome it. I don’t see Dunleavy playing those guys yet. He wants to win now.
Stadiums get old, winning never does.

It appears Koka is being redshirted as he hasn’t been in uniform for a while. I think they said he had a meniscus injury.
