    MBB falls at Drexel, 72-66

    Just speaking for myself...I don’t know what else I can say, beyond thoughts I have previously posted after other games this season. It is what it is...we don’t have the talent this season to compete. Not a low blow, just a fact

    Nice. But if he goes to Maine or Rhode Island, I’m going to throw a tantrum

    Well, if we can’t beat our opponents, at least we can out-culture them😆

    This is the kind of kid I’d love to see us get. Skinny kid, but looks like he can shoot from the outside, run the court & do some rebounding

    According to reports, new DC is....

    If you had to guess, what do you think we’re paying this guy?

    He looks so forlorn in that picture. I think we sometimes overlook the toll coaching a D1 team can take on the coach...pressure to win, concerns over job security (not sure Skerry feels that at the moment, but who knows), traveling around trying to convince 17 year old kids to come play for you, dealing with the various personalities on the current team.... He is compensated well, but still there is a human element that can’t be overlooked
  7. I’ll be perfectly frank...I do wish certain players on this team (Timberlake not being one of them) would transfer. It could be a win-win. Those departing could still get a college degree at their new school, and perhaps flourish on the floor, against competition more on their level. Meanwhile it would possibly result in a more skilled player coming here as a replacement. I hardly think this mindset makes me an enemy of the state.
  8. Regarding suggesting players might leave, I’ve simply become very cynical since the time last season I asked the AD point blank if ZM & Gorham we’re thinking about transferring. The AD looked me straight in the eye & said no, those guys are committed to winning the CAA. Quite naturally, both subsequently bolted. Now in no way shape or form am I suggesting the AD was being disingenuous. My point is simply that kids transferring is epidemic throughout D1, and so until I see Mr. Timberlake (or any other player on the current roster for that matter) on the floor next season, I will expect the worst & hope for the best.

    Another transfer from Pitt is coming

    Nice. Another WR to go with Leatherwood & Allen. Hope we can add a big RB, & help on both the O & D-line.
  10. At the risk of being presumptuous, I think the thoughts in your post suggest you agree that other than Fobbs & possibly Solomon & Timberlake, there are no impactful D1 players on this squad. Let’s be frank, if Fobbs were on a good D1 team he’d probably be a JAG (just another guy) averaging around 8-10ppg. But on our lousy team, he gets the opportunity to take more shots, thus boosting his average to around 16ppg. As for Solomon, he’s got potential, but I don’t recall him hitting a jump shot all season. He’s raw & way too one-dimensional now, but there is hope in his case. As for Timberlake, this injury (which presumably will keep him out the rest of the season) has robbed him of valuable minutes. So, if he’s here next year (and really who knows if his father might not want to yank him out of this sh*tshow), he’s basically starting over. The rest of the bunch...D1 backups, at best. All probably are better suited to be D2 stat stuffers. We can go round & round all night about schemes and strategy, but at the end of the day it ain’t complicated...we don’t have the talent to compete. Whose fault, I ask rhetorically, is that? I suggest it ain’t a who-dunit to answer this question
  11. 5 W’s & 27 L’s, here we come. Not trying to kill the messenger Mat, but Skerry’s postgame comments are nothing more than BS to me at this point. It is true we’re playing with just 8 scholarship players. Frankly, all of them except Fobbs & Solomon are marginal D1 players at that.

    5 stages of grief...

    2017-18: we made the 2nd fewest 3’s in the conference 2016-17: we made the fewest 3’s 2015-16: we made the 3rd fewest 3’s 2014-15: we made the fewest 3’s We are who I thought we are. Can’t win like this. Does Skerry not grasp this, or is it that he’s unwilling to adapt, or unable to recruit the type of players needed? Those are the only possiblities & none of them are acceptable answers.

    Miserable. We’ve made the fewest 3’s in the conference & only C of C shoots a worse percentage. Of course, they have 2 guys named Riller & Brantley, so they can get away with it.

    I shouldn’t ask for others to do my research, but what the hell...where do we rank in regards to number of 3’s made & percentage of 3’s made?

    TUTigers2012, I’m going to hate myself for asking, but if we’re 348th in assists, how many D1 teams are ranked below us?
