I touched on this as well before the season and was ridiculed. LD was best recruiter on staff and was basically a head coach. Mick directly stated in the UConn postgame that he was not happy with his coaching staff.

You got into a fight with one person (Chad). No one else said anything negative. You even tried to keep the fight going two months after it ended. Let it go.

Dude Mick has everyone screwed up. Mick doesnít want anyone to do anything. Those guys seem to play well in the first half then Mick plays the showcase game. He only knows 1 play in the 2nd half. Sad

What would happen if for once Mick breathe believe in the other guys and ran more plays for those guys. Iíll tell what would happen. This team would seriously be dangerous. Just try it, we really do have the players to do so.

We need more natural talent bad. It's depressing. Our team is decent and we play hard most of the time but it would be nice to have a few more guys with natural talent.

It was a simple disagreement, LOL, only reason I responded is b/c CB said LD couldnt beat ECU on the road when he was HC, well Mick didnt either

cincycpaw will become famous soon enough
Another question about this game...it seemed to me that under the basket was too often had a help defender flying to try and block the shot, with no chance really, resulting in easy offensive boards.

Perhaps it's that we've been so good in the past it has colored my opinion of what I saw Saturday night. And maybe I'm letting a couple of instances cloud
my entire thinking...but I think this is something that also needs fixed...in addition to the 3 pt defense.

Yes. I personally saw an uptick when LD coached and pretty sure he is Mickís senior in terms is coaching experience. That said I have never heard a head coach publicly call out assistants in any sport at any time. I find it incredible that any head coach would ever shift blame to the guys he hired and is 100% responsible for at least not in public. Canít imagine what was going through his head.

Or during a game when a team is coming back on them.
