Re: How many games will the football team win in 2017?

Well since he's coming back [they weren't going to fire him with 2 years left on his contract] he's got one more shot.

With a senior laden team and Lawson [hopefully] back, if they can't win 5 or 6 games next year, he's got to go then.

Sorry, close won't count anymore.....

Re: 11/19 | Holy Cross Crusaders | 1:00PM

If we let them play their game, they will want to limit possessions and reduce the number of rebounds...... Have to be disciplined on defense in the half court....not sure our bigs are good at that.. In other words, can't let them hang around....get the jump on them early and it changes the entire g...

Re: Free Throw Rate

We don't need to foul so much!

Bottom line....play smarter defense!

Like was said....play tough defense without fouling, it can be done!

Or are we not capable of doing so? If not, we don't have it...simple as that.

Re: Free Throw Rate

Good post RJ.....we have to stop with the "hands" approach to defense.

You would think the staff is trying to teach players to use their bodies and footwork to avoid fouling.

We have 2 guys that "get it"......Stan and Terrell....but even they are guilty of it at times....

If he has 2 years left, don't see URI canning him after this season....but changes need to be made at least at the OC position....

Foul fests will be the rule rather than the norm this season....it's what we do, with the way we play defense.

We will need that depth, especially on the road where we will get called for even more fouls.

As long as we can keep the defensive intensity up, we will be OK most of the time, imo anyway.
