This is a topic worthy of a thread of it's own. First a couple quotes from the game thread:
What did Crock Sadler say? From http://www.omaha.com/article/2011122...-initial-surge
SHoly crap! If that is what this man is teaching his team he is truly a HORRIBLE COACH. Of course, many already knew that. But anyone who was on the fence before should have broken an ankle falling off after seeing that. DON'T SHOOT WITH 15 SECONDS OR MORE ON THE CLOCK? IS THIS GUY FLIPPING SERIOUS? Go back to what Okieland said:adler waffled when asked if that was as well as any team had guarded Nebraska in his six years.
“Maybe,” he said. “But I think we had a lot to do with it. Our offensive efficiency, when we got it from side to side, we got some good looks.
“But as I told the team, the number of shots we took with 15 or more seconds on the shot clock ... if we’re going to continue to do that, we’re going to continue to get our brains beat out.”
This fool of a coach actually thinks it's wise to just BLOW 20 seconds off the clock ASSUMING that a shot in the LAST 15 seconds is better than ANY shot in the first 20! Wisconsin is very deliberate on offense. But they will take a good shot no matter what the shot clock says. Watch Northwestern. The run the princeton offense...another that is not known for racking up 100 point nights but they will also take the good shot whenever it presents itself. That goofy-arse weave doesn't ALLOW for a good shot to present itself because you are NOT LOOKING for a shot while you're doing it.No wonder our players are so eager to throw up quick treys. Why not? A quick open trey is probably a higher percentage then a forced prayer with the shot clock running out.
This is a bad team coached by a WORSE coach. Doc Sadler has got to go.
