An Unpopular Post ATM
« on: February 03, 2018, 04:42:23 pm »

So, I wanted to just point out that I understand that we are a knee-jerk fandom. We lost so itís time to vent, bash, and moan. I did want to just say that I thought the above actually played well today. Itís tough beating a team that hits the 16 3-pointers. Our offense moved the ball much better today than in the past and our guards made some great drives instead of just settling for the 3.

I know...I know. Mike Anderson sucks. But this game showed a lot of possitives for the home stretch in my opinion. Iím also glad Trey got balls fed to him while Gafford has been struggling. So, come on with the insults if need be, but I think the way they played today wins most games left on our schedule.

Without arguing, Iíd love to ask why? Offense was different than how it usually was where we just dribbled, screened, dribbled, screened, take 3.

A lot of the 3s were contested and a few were from well beyond the arc. But when someone shoots that high of a percentage, anyone is tough to beat.

Again, I donít want to argue. Im just asking.

Sure, there is a lot of overreacting after every game, both wins and losses. And yes, LSU shot lights out from the 3 pt line, if they don't who knows what happens?

But isn't it also the responsibility of the Hog def to not give them wide open 3pt shots all dang day? The LSU point guard broke down the Hogs easily and consistently all game. No alterations in the gameplan for any of that, at least not to my eye. When plan A isn't working, there needs to be a plan B, or C, or whatever it takes. This team doesn't show that imo. Not much solace to take from yet another road loss today.

Look, the defense is bad. LSU scores a season high. Hogs will win 2 more games this year.

This is true. I will add to this though that Waters is a baller. The kid is really good and has done this most games, the other guys on the LSU squad havenít shot like that until today.

Guys.  We canít control how many 3s they hit.  If only college basketball would allow you to deter their shots somehow

Putting a hand up from 5 feet away doesnít qualify as contesting a shot.

I thought the defense was the worst Iíve seen this year.  Gafford was awful.  We couldnít get a decent look from beyond the arc.  Ball movement was bad.  As always there were no ball reversals to create good looks.  Players moved around some but mostly in vain.  We didnít have that many turnovers but the ones we had were mostly self-inflicted.  Lsu basically had a rotation of six healthy players and they did whatever they wanted.  It was bad.

And? The issue still remains there is no plan B. That's pretty much been the case since MA arrived.  Good teams and good coaches have alternatives when plan A isn't working.

I doubt they have been that open before. Every team we play shoots lights out and at some point the coach has to make a change. Mike seems to be lost he has done nothing.

We continue to try and pressure when we don't have the athletes. When you are playing Beard and Thompson not to mention Thomas you can't pressure. When you play Cook you have another non athlete. We don't have the athletes to pressure. Why he continues to play Beard and Cook is confusing. Play Jones and let him play through some mistakes he dang sure lets Beard play through his mistakes.

We don't really pressure, we are not even the Fastest 40 anymore.

We show it in spurts, but doesn't seem like the team is committed to playing that way.

You can't be halfway committed to pressing, trapping, and running...it is all or nothing.

We are somewhere in between.

We made a run and had the lead down with 31 on he bench. Of course we sub and go 3 Sr guards and 2 seniors in the post and the lead balloons and no closing the gap down the stretch. Same story every damn time.
