    Exactly! As a manager you take the hit externally and then let me have it in private.

    And to add to that, think about your coworkers:

    There are those that make excuses and/or blame others. They never seem to improve

    There are the others who take ownership of their and their teams work. They are introspective and improve over time

    So The Virus didnt know he was signing a quite, humble kid, with an unorthodox jumper? Does he recruit like he shops for ties? 10 of the same and we'll figure out how to wear them later...Moore is a great kid. The Virus couldnt dissappear fast enough.

    That's one more than you've played. Just saying.

    Yep, and I highly doubt you had thousands of people peering over your shoulder and critiquing your grades on every assignment.

    I think your post was unnecessarily mean-spirited toward one of our players -- who's never done anything except represent Mason in a first-class manner on and off the court, BTW -- but whatever.

    And it is a BS statement. Corey has had many good games. Plus he has a good work ethic, he plays hard, he has accepted his role where a man of less character would have sulked, and when he got the call he delivered.

    Don't understand why Corey ended up sitting for much of the game after Marquise came on, I though he was playing well. I wish he would play more at the 2 guard spot and shoot the rock more, lord knows we need his shooting ability.

    Completely agree, Walt. Corey has always accepted his role and given his all every time he steps on the court. I admit to getting frustrated in the past with his over-dribbling in our half-court sets and indecisiveness against the press, but he looks like a revived player this season.

    If have one complaint about his play this year, it's that he doesn't shoot enough. I understand he sees his primary role as distributing the ball, but he's arguably the most consistent perimeter shooter we have. If teams give him an open look from behind the arc, he's too good not to take it.

    I've always had a certain appreciation for leaders who were willing to take the blame and present a united front publicly, no matter what the internal situation was. In my personal experience it builds morale and camaraderie.

    I'm not sure it was Corey's fault, but in my opinion our offense was not working last night when he was in there -- and Richmond kept getting him into bad size mismatches.

    I did notice at one point in the first half when Marko got pulled, he came back to the bench very frustrated and angry and it was Corey who calmed him down.

    Dear Corey, do you practice the out of control behind the body layup often in practice to pass up 2 open players?

    Not only him, but several of our players were driving inside hoping to get foul calls, which for the most part, did not happen.
