    We stink. There is no one that we have that any other good team would want. Well, maybe Kolek as a sub.

    Its not all on the players. Yes, we don’t have a game changer and we could use a better PG and Center, but the way this current team is coached and what they’re asked to do on both sides of the floor stinks.

    Ex: La Salle beat both Dayton and Richmond. There is no universe that they are a better team than we are, but they are scrappy and find ways to surprise.

    congrats on getting the vaccine. I wish I got stabbed with needles rather than watching this embarrassing game.

    They will play us 3v6 and win by 12 if Paulsen is still coaching.

    Random hypothetical I found myself thinking of when I was driving home from work tonight:
    15 seconds left, we have possession following a dead ball, down 1, who do you want taking the shot? What about down 2? Down 3?

    Calixte or Hartwell. Both are money!!!!!!!!

    Reminds me of the time in 5th grade where a buddy of mine and I challenged the entire rest of the class to kickball but we got to kick first...they never got a single out the entire recess.

    The Bonnies have won 10 of their last 11 against George Mason, by totals of 17, 9, 12, 11, 23, 16, 10, 19, 20, and 12.

    What I’m saying is, you give a better coach a starting 5 of Greene, Kolek, Miller, AJ and Oduro and they find a way to win more game than they lose. Top 4? Probably not, but at least 10-8.

    Just once I would like Coach Paulsen to take some responsibility for a loss.

    https://gomason.com/news/2021/1/30/mens-basketball-patriots-fall-to-st-bonaventure-in-olean.aspx:

    "'Defensively, we were poor in the first half,' head coach Dave Paulsen said. 'Once they got in a rhythm, it was hard to get stops. I thought we played harder and better in the second half, but they made some timely buckets. Free throw shooting continues to be a damper for us. We make some of those and it can make a big difference. We're looking for more consistency defensively. 50 percent of the result today was our doing, while the other 50 percent was because of their quality as the first place team in our league.'"

    That starting 5 is 8-10 AT BEST. WE'll just have to agree to disagree.

    Nah. That’s a pedestrian, mostly unathletic, starting 5 that isn’t strong with the ball and doesn’t shoot well either. Not to mention awful defensively. These are frumpy Dave recruits. They, simply, aren’t A-10 good. Mostly.

    Please, we got 2 against GW, 2 against St. Joes, 2 against UMass, 1 against La Salle and 1 against Fordham. That’s 8 games right there. You trying to tell me in a week where Dayton lost to both Fordham AND La Salle, a good coach doesn’t find a way to win that one? Duquesne is a winnable game, Davidson as well. Richmond also lost to La Salle. A good coach probably finds a way to sneak one past Richmond, URI, or VCU. 10-8 is definitely doable.

    Only highlights that matter are the ones our players will post from this game. Cant wait to see their individuall accomplishments. Someone post them as I hear its our thing to post highlights after losses.

    If our coach was Mark Schmidt instead of Dave Paulsen, we’d be fighting for a double bye instead of trying to stay out of the PIG. I truly believe there’s that much difference.
