@RowdyPkunk I read in another post how there seems to be a divide between the seniors and underclassmen behind the scenes. I can kind of see it on the floor as well. For example, last night, the starters played fairly well, then the bench came in and allowed the SLU run, and then the starters/seniors seemed to stop caring and everything snowballed. I can recall that happening more than once over this losing streak, and at URI. Against Dayton, the youngins' played well pretty much all game. This is pure speculation, but I think Rhoades is trying to do damage control with his presser comments about his loyalty to the seniors, to try to prevent the seniors from dissenting even more. After all, when they actually feel like playing hard, they play good defense and play fairly smart, regardless of whether or not their shots are falling.
