Ive seen Yess play about a dozen times. He's worthy of an offer if crews is your HC. I see too much Jolly in Yess.

How so?

Was he in the picture Ford tweeted today? I did not see Robey in it.


Yes, Zeke was in the picture.

It's just a reflection of what's going on at the moment.
During the 2013-2014 season, it was the opposite ratio for most:
Jordair is a boss.
This win streak is amazing.
These seniors are going to go down as one of our best classes ever.
We might make some noise in the Tournament.
Back-to-back A10 titles!
Uh, do you think Crews might be mismanaging minutes by overplaying the seniors down the stretch? They're starting to look exhausted...
That ratio would be completely fair, too.
Simply making 100% positive comments no matter what would be to ignore much of what's going on. Doing the same with negative comments, well, those people usually end up on my Ignore list. I'm just not sure how a rational observer could be pleased with the overall picture right now.

I'm neither pleased nor unhappy about the present performance. I'm familiar with what our present weaknesses are, I know there are no quick fixes and the team's record is about what I thought it would be at this point. I predicted 16-15 before the season started and this is basically what a 16-15 team looks like. If we had a current record of say, 7-1, that would be consistent with a 22 win team not a 16-15 one.

If they finish below .500, though, the always-positive set won't be held accountable, either. Such is the nature of a relatively anonymous message board in which no one is required to be accountable.

I could understand the "both sides do it" argument if the volume had been remotely equal. But if one side is posting 5 negative comments for every positive one, that's not a compelling argument. Hell, we've had entire threads derailed by folks who just wanted to take a potshot at the coach.
