    When you are down 20+ and your assignment get to the rim - at least foul them.
    Giving opponents repeated freebies - is the definition of "soft"

    I hope that you are right, and that's all it is.

    It does no good if we've got someone who will stay long term, if he's not successful.

    Our not being ready to play now 3 games in row, along with our poor defensive performance most of the season, is largely on the coach.

    Other than the turnovers, I like how Rhoades has us playing offensively for the most part. However, that will probably never be good enough if we are going to be sub par in other aspects.

    Our five starters played 135 mins and had a total of 7 fouls. Washington Generals defense. 7 the whole game!

    No, what people are trying to say is we've experienced worse and survived and didn't shut the program down.

    Funny how folks were proud a couple of nights ago after overcoming a bad start and playing impressively in the 2nd half. One game later we have someone calling for the coach to be fired?

    Wow, 24-35 in the first half. That's a whole game for most everyone. They didn't even need free-throws! I might just have to subject myself to this to see the spectacle. Something I may not ever see again. We're bad on D, but these kind of numbers are insane under any conditions. You can't work hard enough at it to give up 24 made buckets in a half! Apparently the Fayers don't suck.

    After a while you have to accept reality. He has not been getting it done all season. Everybody has a bad night. But they also have a good one. And a lot of ones somewhere in between.

    Ok. Yes. We have. But those are extreme survival examples when we have to reach back 2 decades.

    Also, please don’t quote me and mix up the subjects. I haven’t said poop about firing anyone.

    Who called for the coach to be fired? I've read the thread and don't recall seeing that. Apologies if I missed it. I do remember some posters questioning the coaching, but not for his dismissal.

    Apparently we never got close enough to foul them is all I
    can figure.

    Ed needs to ask him to re-evaluate things to see how much the ship can be righted this far in. Can't fire, nothing accomplished by that.
