    I'm concerned for his health. Guy pulls on his tie so hard every game.... Any shrinks here that can diagnose him?

    Would you rather be 9 games over .500 and slowly sinking back down or 9 games under .500 and working your way back up?

    cuz I gotta say it’s depressing watching the ship slowly sink.

    He knew we would suck in conf. Thats why the schedule was full of easy games at home. If your not challenging your team, then its obvious you arent ready to be in top 4-5 of conference.

    It's sad but he's a huge upgrade over Hewitt, who was 8-28 in the A10.

    definitely not good. He got the program to 9-9 and then to 11 wins but looks like it’s going to be an enormous step back this year.

    The "bumps in the road" continue in year 5. Sad to watch that. He has accomplished none of what he promised.

    Watched the last Dayton game and the last Maryland game against IU. It really stands out how much a an entire crew of coaches are deeply involved during the game and providing direct input constantly and helping manage the players. Watching our sideline it seems as if DP is the only one who is allowed to do so.

    Not sure what is going and I'm not casting aspersions. Just seems very different than most programs.

    I noticed the exact same thing at the GW game. I was sitting three rows behind the bench. Simpkins was up, moving around, encouraging players, giving instructions, and appeared to want to be actively involved. DP brushed him aside at one point in what I considered to be a dismissive and disrespectful wave of the arm. One isolated incident? I don't know. Pissed me off just the same.

    Rhode island by 20.
    Please keep Gonar Mar on the bench. He is totally lost. He can't get rid of the ball soon enough. Stands outside in 3 pt land as if he can sink 3s. Feel bad for him, but it looks like our coaches have given up on him. Ever since he got hurt he looks like a different player. So much promise as a freshman.

    Yeah, when Mar and Calixte are on the floor together we really struggle to score.

    I love Mountain Dew and that is one of the things I like most about Dave Paulsen (at this point).

    Took a deep dive while ignoring a meeting this morning. Read the first few pages on this thread and pay attention to who says what.

    I have no issue with people who change their minds; in fact, I look up to and respect it. But some of it is super interesting.

    all I see is Herndon is still an idiot that knows nothing about basketball and was so back then.... and surprisingly that GMUjim was sensible before my time on the boards but then turned into a looney soon thereafter. what a weird twist of events.
