ANOTHER season of wasted hopes
Much like the football team, we are not, or, have not "yet" lived up to our billing....also, continuing a 2+ year trend of not finishing off teams/dropping close-winnable games.....i really do not see us winning more than 16 games.

WMUNO-With everybody back, and Northwestern missing one of their guns today, we just have to win this game. Especially at home. We were 8 point favorites, according to the Detroit News. We have a 22-7 lead midway through the 1st Half. Simply put-WE BLEW THIS GAME TODAY!

We've blown two of the last three games... simply put... this team may just not be as good as billed. Period. Sloppy play... poor offense...

RE: ANOTHER season of wasted hopes
I watched the game today on Bronco Insider and came away with these impressions:

1. Offense didn't have a clue vs. NW 1-3-1 trap. This, in my opinion got them back into the game. This is a damn high school defense that these coache's and kids have seen countless times.

2. RARELY did we have a hand in the face of an NW shooter. NW's picks were average at best and we didn't fight through them.

3. Why did the coaching staff wait SO--OOOOOOOOOO long to make adjustments? One time out should have solved the trap.

Frankly, as a ex-25 year high school basketball coach, I thought the team was poorly prepared for today's game. Now, I wasn't privy to what went on behind the scenes so I could easily stand corrected. However, from an observer's point of view only, we should have won the game going away.

I don't feel like this team has really been prepared all season.

Exception maybe being the Davidson game

Well......it's time, or, will be soon when our beloved "Hawk", is going to HAVE to produce. We've been hearing for years now, about this great player, or this great recruiting class...it's TIME for it all to come to fruition. Much like our beloved "Cubit", all this time we are/were worried about some team snatching him away, when, in fact BOTH our coaches might face the axe first.

exception davidson......

well... now we know... it wasnt US being prepared for Davidson... it was Davidson... catching us on a HOT shooting night...and Hawk reaping the benefits...

Coaches must take the grenade here... this team has proven enough to have pre-season acclaim.... its up to the coaches to have the team prepared for EVERY game... and I dont think thats happened...

NW showed its hand before halftime.... and WMU didn't make adjustments after halftime... Thats coaching...

Happens once... its players... happens twice... its an off night... happens THREE TIMES IN A ROW... and its coaching....
