Good recruiter, bad coach?

Recommended Posts

Well almost every player is underperforming compared to last year/ previous teams except Wiley. 

I honestly think there is something behind the scenes going on. This team is frustrated, you can see it on their face. 

Dont know how you can coach bad shots but these guys feel pressured to play well and often try to make “statement shots”

ill take the bad posts for this, but the title of this thread should be - "Is JGood a Bust?"

The only half this year that JGood has looked as good as last year was first half against Pitt when Isabell was sitting out. Coincidence?

So I think we all agree its time to fire Ford and look for a new coach. I bet we could get Stevens

From reading this board you would think we are 1-7 instead of 6-2. Last year at this time we were 4-4 and one of the wins was Rockhurst. They just need to relax and hit some shots.

Knew people would lose their s*** at this thread. Does everyone see the “?” on the end of the thread title?  I’m not saying Ford is an awful coach.  I’m not saying he should be fired. We all think he has done a great job to revitalize this program in just three years. But since when are we not allowed to question a coach when there’s a consistent problem (turnovers and offense) that isn’t getting fixed?  Ford is not the supreme leader. Your fandom is not revoked for asking questions about his performance as an in-game coach. 

It’s funny to me that many of the posters bashing this thread were saying our chances at an A10 championship were over after the Troy and Northern Alabama games.

I actually meant to give you a bad post rather than a troll post but same thing honestly.

We are a much better team than we played last night, but if you can't see significant concerns with this team on the offensive end through the first 8 games, you have not actually been watching it. 

I've been watching and I do not like what I see and we have not played one game offensively that I have been pleased with other than offensive rebounds.

I have asked what is the offense on every game?

When it comes to coaching it is about both sides and the defense has been great and has won us games have you been watching?

Defense is coaching too and having a team that can lock down other teams each game gives us a chance every game.

You have to score to win and the offense is a mess but I am hoping for better things after 8 games but it won't happen with Bess and Wiley hurt.

Happy Friday lets bounce back

Everybody needs to relax ..... it's the OOC and the time for finding out just what we (or any team for that matter) has.  The problem is that many of us believe that this is the time at-large bids get sealed up.  I don't know how true that may be, but I tend to lean that way as well.  So you are stuck with experimenting in what some see as 'must win' situations.  It's a tough road to go.  I'd like to believe we will be okay but the questions are numerous.  That's why Ford gets the big bucks.  He has to figure it out. 

The measure now becomes since we are all so smart an dknow what the problems are, we can sit back and watch Ford's plan to correct them.  That's all we can do.

im not ready to throw in the towel on isabell.   the kid is fearless and does have some skills.   he just needs to be put into a position he can succeed.  that is on ford to do. the likes of him turning into allen iverson or kyrie irving is a tough expectation and that is what has been thrust on him with the offense we are utilizing.
