    THIS IS THE THING THAT MAKES ME SO FRUSTRATED! This is maybe the most athletic team Nebraska has ever had - UNL finally has the athletes. But they don't know what to do with themselves. They do need to hit shots, but they have to have something to fall back on when shots aren't falling to get easier shots until the harder ones fall again. If we can only have a system OR athletes, I guess I would rather have the athletes as UNL does now, because they win some games from out-ath-a-lete-ing the other team. I would really like to be able to take the next step of having a system that works with personnel.

    Insert picture of Sam Kinnison yelling here... I'm frustrated. I don't think I want too much, but maybe I'm not realistic. I'm not owed anything by the athletes or the university, but I do want the best for them and by extension me. :)

    Good post this is exactly how I feel and stated it in an earlier post.

    He wants the athletes to have great individual defense but they aren’t shooters. They aren’t complete b-ball players.

    Nothing makes me look forward to baseball season, like basketball season.

    You can have a good team when coach teaches and demands toughness. You can have a good team when the athletes hold themselves accountable and are tough. You can have a great team when both of these elements are present but when you have neither you are just going to be what we have been watching the last 3 weeks.

    Every time I've seen this particular team look good for stretches in games it seems it's been when they've played with some pace. That said, even before Copeland was hurt, I'm not sure they are deep enough to play at pace for 40 minutes. They flat out suck in the half court. Catch 22.

    +1000 And frustrating is totally right. We have a coach who is great for our program in all aspects except, coaching.
