Re: Just Don't Get it

His work on the glass, and ability to slash and finish around the hoop definitely patched over what was a pretty weak roster on offense, but I have to believe there is more to this than that. This is a stunning collapse at all kinds of levels. Letting Darrell "freestyle" was his 1st mistake 2 years...

Re: Fire Wardle

in all fairness to Bar there isn’t a single player on this team right now playing well.... It’s systemic and until everyone ups their game it’s going to be hard for an individual to play very well.

Re: Dim The Lights

Bradley doesn’t have a single guard who can finish at the rim through any kind of traffic. And of course the bigs are shooting under 40% which is brutal as well. We all thought DLO was that guy... And there was a stretch during the game he looked like that guy... i even txtd brave and said... he’s ...

Re: Braves v Da Bears

Three things struck me regarding MSU: 1-Talking & communicating throughout 2-Accountability to one another 3-Intensity All three were constants with the Bears, and all three are non-existent with the Braves. I don’t recall talking about this much of any the first three years..... that’s whats weird.

I may yet have to venture out into this tundra to help my grandpa out a bit. He’s a short drive from downtown, thinking about going to the game. Has anyone got a report on the road conditions?

Donte would be a candidate for the all-time underachievers team his first three years at Bradley though. For Bradley to be better Childs needs to continue tracking at a better clip than Donte Thomas.

Re: Fire Wardle

Its tough enough to try to get a group of average talent level players to execute and perform. Now he has to step outside of his personality and comfort zone as an x/o coach and try to become less rigid, more empathetic, a little softer on the leadership side of things. He hasn't shown the willingn...

Smart to do it during work hours too. It limits who can make it. I imagine they don't work on regular stuff at these events.
