The issues are numerous in my mind. The Seniors are scared like someone mentioned above. And outside of Sam, none have improved over the course of their 4 years. Amir is just useless. I mean useless. The hardest playing lineup consists of FR and SO, and either McDonald and maybe Lee. Amir needs to be the 3rd guy. I don't understand Thad's continued loyalty to him!! Can someone explain that to me? I know he's a players coach, I get that. But Dear God he is terrible.
Our 2-3 zone is a J O K E. Seth Davis or Doug Gottlieb (can't remember which it was) said it best on the halftime show. It's not good, at all. Especially with players like Amir and even Loving, who are already lazy minded on defense. We are 9 deep supposedly. Why the hell aren't we playing man??
i don't mean to be all doomsday, because this is a solid team. And I heavily support Thad Matta! But this zone and his misguided loyalty to guys like Amir will limit us against top 15 teams.
