That's our first BAD loss

A team we should have beaten - 4 point favorite. We've had our chances in this non-conference schedule and didn't pick up one. A-10 auto bid or nothing now.
Now think 4th or 5th in the A-10 because it is so weak . Still a next year guy.
Thoughts?

Pretty obvious to even the announcers, you don't win if you can't make wide open 3's. We did everything else just good enough to get a W.

We need shooters. I was looking forward to see how Jordan Davis had grown in his sophomore year, and frankly, his game has diminished and it is killing us.

Tulsa has good wins already, will win 20, and will be an NCAA team. Not a bad loss but a lost opportunity.

Another team we should have beaten.... bologna!! We are not that good. We are generally undersized. We donít defend very well. We donít shoot very well. Our point guard is at best average but has the ball a disproportionate amount of time and canít make plays against quality opponents. Unfortunately there are few fixes for what ails us, itís talent and that canít be remedied easily.

Maybe Figgie can research this - I have a gut feeling that the Flyers have struggled almost every time they play an afternoon game over the past few years. It's almost like it throws their schedule off and gets them out of rhythm. Am I loopy or do they always seem to underperform in mid-afternoon games?

(If I was a betting man I might bet against them in afternoon games. Kind of like the "home underdog opposite turf" angle in the NFL.)

It is evident that you are in the group of the glass half empty vs. the glass half full! You are not shy about trying to emphasize all of what you perceive our weaknesses are! Let me defend our players like you should instead of tearing them down: First, you state we are not that good! Well, we defeated 7-3 Butler who has defeated Ole Miss and Florida and is picked to finish high in the Big East. We took a probable final 4 team, Virginia, down to the wire and might have beaten them except an official swallowed his whistle when Ty Jerome fouled Obi Toppin on a moving screen which allowed De'Andre Hunter to make a crucial 3 pointer in the waning moments of the game! We are not undersized! Obi Toppin set a school record with eight dunks in the Detroit game! We do defend albeit better at home than on the road. We don't shoot very well and our point guard is at best average: Let me point out that in the victory over Butler in the Bahamas Jalen Crutcher scored 20 points on 6-8 shooting and making 3 of 4 three point shots. He also made several crucial free throws down the stretch.

Finally, you say there are few fixes for what ailes us, that being talent! Thanks for giving our guys bulletin board material! When they win the A-10 and or get the automatic bid for winning the conference tournament I wonder if you and udscott will even make a comment! We probably won't even hear from you!

Point guards have the ball a disproportionate time because they are point guards. In all of Div. 1 basketball, Crutcher might be considered average, as you say, but he's improved and he's the only one we got. This is not a bad loss. Losing to Fordham would be a bad loss. Of our five losses, three teams clearly had more and better talent. We have had second half leads in all games but have not made the winning play. Before the season started, I hoped for 20 wins and I still think that's possible.

If you think we're not that good now, throw Crutcher a sprained knee for a few weeks and you'll see what not that good really looks like. Without Jalen we are probably 2-8.

Not sure how anyone could have a complaint with Crutcher. Making plays against quality opponents is a two way street

I'm not sure he should be taking 11 threes in a game like today but one no one else is making plays on the perimeter I'd rather him try to step up

His threes were all coming up short, for the most part. I agree 11 is too many but AG should be instructing the supporting cast to give Jalen some help and they all should drive to the basket more instead of just passing around the perimeter until the shot clock runs down and someone has to shoot a three!

Hopefully, the whole team can regain their form in these next three games before the A-10 starts!

so much I want to say, but then I remember I have to type lol..) the title of this thread suxx unfiltered Boston Harbor water... this is not a bad loss, this was a win we could of had against another good team.. not just open 3's but we missed many short jumpers and running layups in the first half...
in Brian Gregory's 3rd year here, we had Monty Scott, Charles Little, Norm Plummer, Brian Roberts and were 14-17, with many close losses by less than ten points.. it was our first losing season in 19 years and we had many chicken littles running around telling all of us the sky is falling! we have good players and can't win, woe is me...we only had maybe one bad game, I think we played at UMass and the team didn't show, got blast3ed by nineteen or something like that..
what happened nexdt season?

we got Marcus Johnson and London Warren as freshmen, and we won 19 games..
this team, right now, is looking good, better than I expected at the start of the year..

our non conference strength of schedule is 23rd in the nation.. we have NOT had a bad loss yet...
I am hoping this helps iin the Atlantic 10... we have the toughest strength of schedule in non conference games in the A10.. dear lord Grand Canyon University plays a tougher non con schedule than St Louis..
I am hoping for a top 4 A10 finish, and have already posted here my predicction: we win the tournament and get the automatic bid... we were predicted 6th or thereabouts, we will beat that... I have seen this before several times with different UD coaches.. next year we are loaded for bear...

Also while not specifically or only a shooter the loss of Matos kills us! For a few reasons

This is not truly a ďbadĒ loss, but itís possibly the most disappointing loss because it came against our most evenly matched opponent to date. And IIRC, this was the first game we were favored to win, but lost. It forces me to keep reminding myself that weíre still painfully young (3 freshmen, 2 sophomores, and 1 junior with only a year of true game experience, to go with 1 junior and 1 senior), and a bit undersized (only 4 guys 6í6Ē or taller among our 8 available players). And it makes me appreciate all the more what the Magnificent Seven was able to accomplish with 3 sophomores in the starting lineup, and a bench that consisted of a freshman and a walkon.

Not a bad loss, but definitely one that grounds my expectations for the rest of the season.

The loss of Jerry hurts more than most realize- he played solid D, was a 3 point threat and had great court vision. Also significant is the fact that Frankie is behind the curve having sit out the first 6 games. I think everyone knows this team has potential and is close to being very good. Iím trying to remember its how you finish thats most important. The 3rd year begins the real progress in my opinion. I still think this team wins 20 this year.

We lost by 5 although favored by 4 on a neutral court. Tulsa is a very good team and should make tourney. They are undefeated at home.

We were tied at half time. We lost by 5. Shot 5 for 23 from three point range. If we shot 7 for 23 (not a good percentage either), we would have won by one or more if we shot 10 for 23 and the doom and gloomers would have nothing to complain about. We will have our ups and downs but, gang, give the team and Tulsa some credit. Come in off the ledge, things are not that bad.

Grant's inability to call a timeout to stop momentum or make an adjustment never ceases to amaze me. They scored on 7 straight possessions late in the 2nd half, on something like a 14-2 run. My mom would have known to call a TO in that situation, it's astounding.

At this point in our season, the only hope we have for post season play is to win the A10. Therefore, I'm betting that Grant sees the big picture (the season) and isn't micromanaging every possession, therefore forcing his young team to fight thru certain situations in order to improve play when it counts...which is in 4 games.

You're probably right, Grant's playing chess and the rest of the NCAA is playing checkers. I think most of the good coaches do this, let the guys figure it out on their own rather then, well, actually coaching.

C'mon Browns...this is real basketball, not youth.

Sometimes 'coaching' requires the man in charge to step back and see if his minions can actually think, play and make decisions on their own based on what you've practiced. If all the players do is look to the bench for instructions (Brian Gregory) then they are reacting and will always be a step behind their opponents.

We don't need robots. We need players. And the less instructions they need, the better off we'll be when it matters.

Unless you're a CYO-level coach, in which case the team and fans are in trouble.

We don't need robots. We need players. And the less instructions they need, the better off we'll be when it matters.

Unless you're a CYO-level coach, in which case the team and fans are in trouble.
You don't honestly believe that Grant has some master plan every game when he goes home with 2/3 TO's still in his pocket, do you? Archie used those every time in those situations. Maybe Archie just didn't know what he was doing?

I would take Davis out of the starting lineup. Move Mikesell to the true two, and let him share point guard and quarterback duties. I would play Frankie more, and thus go big longer in each game by having Obi and Josh on the floor as much as possible. Then I would post Mikesell up on the other teams guards under the basket, and play high low constantly with Obi, Josh, and Mikesell. I feel this would address some of the size disparity issues. If we are going to be a half-court team, then we might as well substitute and game plan with that in mind.


Then you bring Davis and Cohill in to switch up the pace of the game periodically. Hit them with the change of pace, give some guys their breather, and the return to power half-court lineup; repeat steps as needed. This team, and program in general, have to get better at attacking the middle and forcing the officials to call fouls; but also have to greatly improve free throw shooting. Cunningham, Mikesell, Crutcher, Landers, and Obi, could make a living at the free throw line, but Flyers are not patient enough or deliberate enough in their attack. And constantly letting the other team off the hook when their bigs are in foul trouble. If UD would attack a foul troubled big, they way Tulsa did against flyers, likely win 2 or three more games thus far.

I'm guessing that someone who was a pretty solid player at UD, who has worked under a pretty successful head coach (Donovan) at Florida (and the NBA), and who has been a successful head coach for a pretty long time knows when and when not to call a time-out. To suggest that he doesn't have a clue because he doesn't use all his timeouts indicates you're still in CYO mode where over-coaching is an epidemic.

So yes, I do believe that Grant has a master plan. As someone who is heavily invested in basketball, I can say with confidence that the best coaches I see are the ones I hear the least from and who appear to do the least in-game coaching...which you interpret as being clueless and I interpret as being appropriate.

FWIW, I bet Grant's coaching strategies change when the A10 starts. That's where he'll earn his salary.

Excellent post, Beatty Town Coach! And I never thought I would be saying that in Jordan's sophomore year. My posts on him last year were things like "fearless," "warrior," and "ice in his veins." This year he seems so out of touch. I believe a turning point in yesterday's game was the two-on-one break he had with Mikesell. He was pushing it toward the basket, as he should, and then when the defender approached him, he for whatever reason, switched the ball to his left hand and made one of the worst passes imaginable. The Flyers lost two points and it would have put them ahead by either four or six. That was a turning point and it was all downhill from there.

I think that was the break away with Trey. Trey told him he was expecting an alley oop pass and Jordan tried a shovel pass.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

Unless you call a timeout...or sub...

I've been teaching engineering and/or math on the side for 17+ years and at some point I have told dozens of confused students after numerous lectures that they just need to figure it out for themselves. I cannot solve everyone's problems and at the same time expect them to learn. Neither can a coach.

The non-conference is the best time to see what Policelli and Cohill can do so if they're needed you know where to put them. With Matos out, this should be easy to understand. Archie let his players work thru their issues, sometimes to a fault!...Gregory over-subbed and over-TO'd everyone to death. I'll take the former's results over the latter's but it'll take time.

Shooting

Tulsa shot 54% while their season average is 47%, which is good. UD shot 22% from three, which is dreadful. Two or three more 3s would till have been a poor percentage but would have won the game.

This is not rocket science.

Grant didn't take a timeout until the final minute of the game. There's a lot of distance between that and over-coaching.

I'm going to support Rollo and his theory of Grant letting the players figure it out and see what he has to work with going into league play. It certainly creates teachable film and gives players a sense of ownership. Anyone remember when Temple played in our league? Chaney's teams always seemed to play about .500 ball going into league play. Then they thumped about everyone on the schedule. His players seemed to gain a season's worth of experience from that out of conference stretch going into league play.

My beef with AG not calling a timeout had zero to do with instruction or over-coaching.

The first media timeout did not occur until nearly the 13 minute mark of the first half. The boys were gassed and AG was playing with a short bench of his own doing. Oh, and by the way, Tulsa was having their way with us. Call a friggin' timeout.

The other scenario was around the 5 min mark in the 2nd half when he wanted to (finally) sub out Frankie or Mikesell with Obi and Tulsa had 3 possesions w/out a stoppage of play where they were able to isolate those two and get easy buckets or fouls. Call a friggin' timeout.

The team came out cold and flat. It had been 8 days since the last game. The team was focused on exams. We got beat at the skill positions. Their guards out played our guards. We did not get beat by their bigs. The book on Tulsa prior to the game was that their guards liked to drive to the lane and force fouls. It appeared to me that Dayton players were coached to expect this. Dayton did a great job in prohibiting their drives. We dared them to settle for a 3 point shot. To our surprise, Tulsa made their 3 point shots in the first part of the game. Dayton missed several layups. Maybe Tulsa defended well that caused the miss? We dug ourselves a hole in the first half and then showed great togetherness to follow the coaches strategy of play and got it to even at the half. But, that took a lot of emotion to accomplish. I was concerned how the second half would be played. We came out and scored right away. I was hopeful.

Our skilled positions at guard got out played in the second half. The only time that a rim protector would of helped was when Davis got faked out of his socks. Davis stepped right and the Tulsa guard stepped left and blew by him to a layup.

Even with all this, it came down to Mikesell missing an open 3 pointer. He missed the GAME shot.

What is the magic in a timeout? Some kind of divine intervention going to possess the team and make everything right - just because the coach called time out? Just sounds like announcer babble to me; to fill up any chance of "quiet" air time.
You call a timeout when you see something that needs a lot of explaining.... The game plan should be pretty well set and the players should be able to see where they are relative to it. IMHO, just calling "time out" does nothing.

The Atlantic 10: Bad Luck, Bad Coaching, or Both?

Though Dayton fell victim to a brutal call by the refs today as well, it’s tough to see the Flyers’ “bad luck” score as much other than coaching. Anthony Grant’s decision to take Josh Cunningham and Obi Toppin out of the game with 3 fouls stifled the Flyers who got outplayed in the final minutes. Grant just has not been a great in-game coach now in his 2nd season at Dayton, and that’s beginning to show even more this year as Dayton is just 5-5 on the young season.

Take a look at the box score and each players minutes for Dayton compared to Tulsa. I think one team would have benefited from more stoppage in play.

It has far more to do with attempting to stall the momentum of your opponent than it does trying to instill some type of head-strong into your team, although it never hurts to have a coach that can recognize things without the players running full speed past them..Also, look at the depth and mpg these guys are playing...

I reffed a game last week that was interesting...

1st quarter the more talented of the 2 teams comes out flat and the play was ugly. They were lost and the coaches were doing - literally - nothing. At the end of the quarter they were losing and the team was flustered. In the 2nd quarter the coaches started making changes, adjustments and - viol'a - the better team took charge and eventually won BIG.

After the game I'm leaving and bump into an assistant coach and asked WTF happened in the first quarter. He said the team needed 'an attitude adjustment' and that the kids stopped listening to the head coach because 'they think they know everything'. So the coaches decided NOT to coach the first quarter and let the players play on their own. So, just as the coaches thought/knew, the kids found out for themselves that they don't know everything and actually need coaching if they want to win.

My Royal Point: Sometimes coaches know what they're doing.

With that in mind, from what I see in games and hear from insiders, I'm under the assumption that Grant knows exactly what he's doing and will be patient (2 more years) as our players adjust to the way Grant wants to do things.

In the 2nd quarter the coaches started making changes, adjustments and - viol'a - the better team took charge and eventually won BIG.

After the game I'm leaving and bump into an assistant coach and asked WTF happened in the first quarter. He said the team needed 'an attitude adjustment' and that the kids stopped listening to the head coach because 'they think they know everything'. So the coaches decided NOT to coach the first quarter and let the players play on their own. So, just as the coaches thought/knew, the kids found out for themselves that they don't know everything and actually need coaching if they want to win.

My Royal Point: Sometimes coaches know what they're doing.

With that in mind, from what I see in games and here from insiders, I'm under the assumption that Grant knows exactly what he's doing and will be patient (2 more years) as our players adjust to the way Grant wants to do things.
I agree with most of what you are saying with Grant's coaching but I think if this is really his philosophy he needs to get Frankie some more touch to start "figuring it out." Not playing him and then inserting him in crucial moments looks like it is hurting his confidence more than helping.

IMO, it was Grant who lost a winnable game for us. For the following reasons:

1. A couple of very troubling non-timeouts.

2. Watching Frankie flounder with a terrible lineup and doing nothing about it (see #1). Frankie, Jordan, Jalen, Trey, and Mikesell (I think) was not working at all. Sub-in 13:09 @ 41-41, sub-out at 10:22 and 48-43. Layup, layup, 3 pointer. Tulsa smelled blood in the water.

3. Left Cunningham and Obi on the bench too long. As my dad used to say, "what are you saving him for, the Sunday picnic??" Both finished with 4 fouls. You gotta ride them until they foul out. Obi left the game at 7:22 and 55-50 and didn't come back until it was 66-56 @ 3:41. If he can't go 5:00 without fouling, well then, accept that he's going to foul out.

4. Cohill plays 13 minutes. He sits on the bench until the ~12 minute mark of each half while Davis and Crutcher play so many minutes. He needs to play more so Crutcher can get a break, it's not like Tulsa was pressing us. Why is he only playing 2 shifts per game of 5-6 minutes each? How about a couple of shorter shifts but more often, like a stoppage right before a TV timeout to extend JC's rest minutes?

5. Trey keeps getting the ball in the wrong place. He's wide open for 3's for a reason. I don't mind him taking a couple a game, but he's in the wrong place at the wrong time. Get him to the foul line area.

But in the end, a bad shooting team shot a really high percentage. We won the TO battle, the rebounding battle, the steals battle, the foul battle, and we couldn't make a 3 for anything. So we lost.

I don't know if Trey can do it but it would nice if he could develop his shot like Kyle Davis. KD wasn't a guy you wanted taking a lot or 3s or contested 3s but if you left him wide he got to the point where he'd keep the defense honest

AG can get away with stealing a few minutes with Cohill but at this point I don't think he can with Frankie against better competition

Agree that Frankie looked frustrated out there. He needs some easy productive minutes against a lesser team before he will start to build confidence.

I think Grant was not going to play Frankie at all yesterday, but his hand was forced. Most of us would have done the same, but would never admit it. The mistake, as some pointed out, was to not call a timeout after about 90 seconds of Frankie to get Cunningham or Obi back in. That would have stopped momentum and given those two an additional couple of minutes of rest. Grant doesn't get a do over, like all of our Monday quarterbacking, but then he makes the big bucks.

Frankie and Cohill will hopefully see lots of minutes in the next two weeks, and it hopefully will change them. Cohill with more minutes yesterday would have made little difference, as he is still too gun shy to shoot.

The above! Seems for us it is difficult to shoot well on the road. Fix that and there is not much to debate.

That's the thing. So far, the issue has been that Cohill is nothing more than a leg rest. He's not doing much of anything to contribute, and what we need right now are people that can contribute - especially when it comes to shooting the ball. He's shown very little on that front.

The door is wide open for anyone that finds a way to score to earn as many minutes as they want. Given the way AG is rotating players, I'm guessing he's not seeing it from many non-starters in practice either.

Anyone else catch the announcer's quote about it being clear that Grant only trust his starting five plus Obi?

I admit I don't know anything (or at least don't know the whole story. I did not think it made sense to redshirt Frankie to start. Assuming there would not be an injury was a mistake. Then I think the plan should have been to get Frankie a few minutes in the first half yesterday.

Don't see assuming no injury as a mistake. AG redshirted FP and always had the option of bringing him back. Injury happend so AG brought him back. If no injury occurs FP has a year to develop, and by all indications he could have used that year to advantage.

On First Bad Loss Thingy:



UD has better prospects than I first forecast, because the A-10 will likely stay a more diminished version of its past self, and Dayton has overall advantages.

The possibility for fulfilling high dreams was narrow anyway, but the concept of Dayton being a consistently dominant figure in the A-10 was not inconceivable.



Visions or projected reality are forged by super strong individuals. Grant was brimming after the Virginia loss. Dayton played well, but the demeanor for me was a tell.

Will Grant consistently manipulate the stock he has as the outstanding or competent maverick in the coming decade?

When was the last time Dayton had lost to 4 teams ranked in the top 26 in the country in the same season, while being competitive in every game with chances to win in the second half?

Yes yesterdays loss sucked, but I am not convinced Tulsa might not be a better team than many give them credit for, but we should have still won.

So looking forward, I like what I see from Grant, I like what I see from our young short benched Flyers, and I am quite confidant we will be in the top 3 in the A-10 this season, and I am really excited for next season and beyond.

Oh yea, use your **** Time outs in the future AG!

Good news....... we competing with really good teams... woohoo.! We could have won all five lost games. For those who care about actually winning, maybe we should consider how we can improve rather than wish we were in a better conference, placed our school in a cooler city, had better players and were actually winning. Seems we keep testing the definition of insanity.

Maybe we should stop shooting so many threes, given we are not very good at it... got that Trey?

How about Crutcher getting a bit of bench time until he decides that passing around aimlessly is... aimless.

Letís try running more, especially with Cohill as we arenít very good in the half court against teams our size.

Perhaps more Obi and Josh together would improve our results. And saving their fouls for double overtime is stupid Coach!

And there are likely many other things to try, other than wait to play teams even more hapless than us. Something has to change for us to get better.

Chaney's teams always seemed to play about .500 ball going into league play. Then they thumped about everyone on the schedule. His players seemed to gain a season's worth of experience from that out of conference stretch going into league play.
That drove me nuts when I saw how Temple would absolutely own every team in the A10 (after mediocre pre-A10 - but a brutal schedule). But, it never surprised because Cheney would play anybody anywhere and he created warriors doing it year in and year out. I'm not a half glass empty guy. I don't recall ANY Dayton team the last 40 years starting with a schedule like this years team has faced. A couple of missed 3's go in yesterday and it's a completely different game. Had RM hit that 3 late, it would have tied the game and anything could have happened at that point. This team has a lot of heart; they don't give up. It's how you finish and that's how this team should be judged. Would you rather have a bunch of Duke type patty cakes with 2 or 3 fairly tough games and finish 11-3 and get slaughtered by a weaker than normal A10 or the opposite? If UD was 5-5 having played nobody, I'd be really concerned. Would I rather have a 7-3 or 8-2? H3ll yes; but 9-1 against 200+ RPI teams is fools gold and will not prepare this team for what's ahead. Step off the ledge please...And yes if you haven't guessed it, I'm firmly behind AG.

I agree. At a minimum, it has not advanced. Teams are not worried about his shooting, nor Landers. They focus in Crutcher. We need someone to step up, or the conference will not be as fruitful as we think.

No doubt we need to wait another year. Could not agree more. But man, it gets frustrating.

I looked up UD's motto, and it is Pro Deo et Patria. I used the google translator, it turns out it is Latin for "Wait 'till next year."

I have had conversations with friends and co-workers through the years and we always say it. Last year, it was, "Wait 'till next year these recruits will come in and make an impact, Mikesell will be healthy, the freshman will have even more strength and experience, ect, ect."

Now I'm told to wait until next year. The players will understand AG's offensive and defensive systems, the transfers will bolster the depth, ect. I just think a lot of people are tired of waiting for next year.

Good Anthony Grant show last nite.He was very honest, said we took a step back on Sunday. Outcoached and out played. Said he also still believes this team can shoot the ball. He like the big lineup that they haven't used a lot and they will keep looking at it. He said several times he was disappointed with the defense too many easy shots and missed assignments. He gushed about Rodney Chatman, very fast and a Elite defender.

Let's dissect that, just for fun.

1. Our #1 and #3 most prolific shooters are both shooting 42%. Our #2 most prolific shooter is shooting 26% but that's after shooting 39% last year as a freshman. Yes, he's struggling. No, he should not just stop shooting. Those 3 account for 73% of our 3's. It's 78% of our 3's when you ignore the walkons and people like Josh who are not at all shooters. Trey, yes, should not take more than 2 shots per game from outside at most.

2. There is no one other than Crutcher. SS is not walking through that door. "Crutcher at point is the insanity of doing the same thing over and over so do something different" doesn't make you smart, because by your logic we should try the popcorn vendor. It's just dumb. We don't need to try anything different to know that Crutcher is our #1A best option, and it's not even close.

I mean, maybe we should try Westerfield at center, because, you know, try something different.

3. I'm sure the 8 total / 7 capable scholarship players would love to get out and run a lot. That will help the 3 point shooting and defense in the last 5 minutes.

4. While I think Obi needs to play more and AG left him on the bench too long against Tulsa, he is 2nd on the team in fouls, but ahead of only Cohill (and Policelli) in minutes. There might be a reason he's not playing more.

5. "Something has to change for us to get better." You might want to come to terms with the idea that we're in year 2 of rebuilding, we might just not be good enough this year, and IMO we're ahead of schedule. If Jordan Davis could hit water from a boat we would have won a couple of these close games.

AG is a smart man. When your customers are getting restless, throw them a bone and tease something that won't fix the problem, but will make them salivate and get them back on board yearning for future success.

So looking forward, I like what I see from Grant, I like what I see from our young short benched Flyers, and I am quite confidant we will be in the top 3 in the A-10 this season, and I am really excited for next season and beyond.

Oh yea, use your **** Time outs in the future AG!
The only thing comparable to this run in terms of quality opponents I can think of is 2000. Maui with Maryland, UConn, Arizona and I think UC to open up the year

We have capable pieces to compete and finish out this year nicely. From the next game on we should win 75% of our games and finish with 20+ wins for the year. Anything less than that would be a disappointment. The A10 schedule is the antithesis of our ooc schedule.

But we have to play hard, stay healthy, and stay hungry. Respect our opponents. Or we will look like the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday.

Interesting. 10 games in and the posts are similar to last year. AG in game adjustments and reluctance to sub.

Let's just hope we don't start out 1-5 in the A-10. Seriously, we need to win our next six games.

Another trademark of the BG era was the almost-constant directing from the bench. BG seemed to try to control every movement of every player all game long. Again in stark contrast, AG says very little while the ball is in play. I again prefer the AG approach because it allows the players to keep their focus on the court, and not be distracted by the yelling from the bench.

I could go on, but suffice to say I donít believe weíre taking a long-term step backward to 2006.

Sorry, but I am kind of on that boat. Hope I'm wrong. I think that Grant is a bit better than BG, but I think that we are taking a very significant step back from Archie. Hope I'm wrong.

Don't necessarily disagree but it's hard to have hockey line subs when you only have 7-8 players available.

PLENTY of teams get it done without a long bench. For example just last night Buffalo uses 7 guys to defeat Syracuse and remain undefeated.

Thatís funny because i think long term (as long as AG is here as the coach) we are taking a significant step forward. I donít think AM is any better of an X/O guy than AG. AM could be embarrassing to watch sometimes and he hasnít changed that trait since heading west. I like the composure i see from AG and typically that translates into a good players coach since the players donít get scolded for every mistake. I feel like AG isnít here to put his name on the map and parlay it into a ďbetterĒ job. Anybody who had visions that the program wouldnít go through a few years of growing/transitional pains isnít being realistic or fair. Donít believe that? Look at X down south sitting at 7-5; when was the last time you saw that to start a season?

The most important game of the year is tonight. Then it's the next one. And the next one. WE can fantasize about A10 Championships, but the players dare not. We have good upside and we better bottle it now.

I'm not talking about winning, I was specifically referring to hockey-line substitutions. If you're playing 7 guys, the most you can sub out is 2, which is not a hockey line substitution.

Couldn't disagree more.

And Archie has the Hoosiers projected to finish at rpi #22, which is probably good for a 5? or 6? seed I guess.

Don't be surprised to possibly see Archie in the Sweet 16 or better this year.

FWIW, Crean went 18-16 in his last year at IU, but they did make the NIT.

X and O guys don't necessarily correlate one-for-one with wins and success. Archie is finding recruiting to Indiana has it's advantages. Talent and size can take over for the lack of X/O acumen in some cases. Great talent can make a coach look very smart. Calipari admitted to such a few weeks ago.

If you love AM at IU, great. Youíre comparing oranges to apples in terms of the relative easiness AM enjoys at IU- a bar set extremely high by RMK and still continues to this day (aka...recruiting karma-he really doesnít have to try very hard as historically IU has been successful).Lets not forget AM went 14-17 his second year and was on the hot seat by the majority here on this board in the middle of the third season when things turned around. I am very happy with what AG has done, the recruiting of high level individuals (moral character) and his coaching. We will have to agree to disagree.

If BG was brought back to the University Development office, Iíd take him back in a nanosecond too. But as a coach? No thanks.

The guy was a great representative of the university, and by all accounts a great guy. And nearly every player who came here during his tenure and stayed all 4 years seems to be a good citizen and university representative. But I saw enough weave offense and hockey line substitutions, and heard enough ďwe just need to get better at what we doĒ interviews in 8 years to last me a lifetime. He had hit his ceiling of success here, and 1 NCAA appearance in his last 7 years here isnít good enough for a program that dedicates the kind of resources to menís basketball that UD does.

A great guy, but an average-at-best Head Coach.

Meh, yes.. you're right.. read between the lines. I was being terribly nasty as I am. That said:

An NCAAT win and an NIT Championship, 7 years post-Miller, would be wonderful.

Which is one more than Oliver Purnell won in 27 years as a head coach. And BG did win UD's first NCAAT game in almost 20 years. There's something to be said for that even though he didn't take us where we wanted to go.

I am very happy with what AG has done, the recruiting of high level individuals (moral character) and his coaching. We will have to agree to disagree.

I am sensing some lingering bitterness over Archie leaving, which is understandable given the things that Archie said about loving it here when he was here.

But, that bitterness should not stop you from giving the man his due. He is a great coach, hands down.

If it was so easy to win at IU, then Crean and Mike Davis would not have been fired, and Kelvin Sampson would not have had to resort to cheating.

I agree that none of AG's players have been in any trouble so far, which is a great thing.

And one more thing.

Archie is projected to get a 5 seed this year right now, which is already 2 spots better than he got here.

People keep saying that we just need to win more games in order to get a better seed. Give me a friggin' break. Archie won 23, 25, 25, and 24 games in his last 4 years, but all we got was a 7 seed.

We went 10-6, 13-5, 14-4, and 15-3 in the A10.

What else do you want the guy to do? Go 16-2 or 17-1 every year?

I honestly don't blame him for leaving. The UD administration refuses to schedule up and go to a 15/15 schedule. I think Archie realized that he was being handcuffed. How in the world can we ever expect to do better than a 7 seed?

We went 14-4 and won 25 games, and all we got was a 7 seed.

The UD administration is not serious about trying to win a national championship. If they were then at least once over the last 20 years they would have scheduled up. They are just content to rake in the money every year from all these d*mn buy games.

Archie came in here on a mission to get himself to the next level. In doing that, he got the Flyers to a place they had not been in a long time and we really enjoyed that. However, Archie got to that next level but he did not leave anything behind in terms of raising the program. We are where we have been for the last 25-30 years. If I have any resentment it is that so much money was thrown at him in hopes that he would stay and raise the level of UD basketball. He was going to get his when he moved on. His $s at UD should have been tied to a longer term success. It wasn't my money so I guess I really shouldn't care.

Sorry if my post was misleading. I really like what Archie did at Dayton, and unlike others never thought for a moment that he would NOT take the next step up that he coveted when presented.

No hard feelings toward AM. That move was in the family DNA.

I'll agree Archie accomplished personal goals, was driven, got UD "to where it hadn't been in a long time" and was a very good coach. But as someone else mentioned,...leaving was in his DNA. 2 very good years where we had a final 8 and 2 wins the next year almost making the sweet 16. The last 2 years...a first round loss- and uninspired ones at that. Still, I'll take it. But Arch knew when the time was right to move on and he did it in a heartbeat. And he didn't leave us much.

No coach has come close to the accomplishments that RMK achieved at IU and likely none ever will. Don't forget, Mike Davis got IU to the NCAA Championship game one year while Crean was largely successful as well after a long rebuild; I think both of those guys got IU to the Dance at least 4 years while they were there. But IU is like UK in terms of expectations; NCAA appearances aren't enough, they want National Championships. You can thank coach RMK for that expectation. So If AM takes IU to the promised land he'll be fine (not a final 4, a National Championship). But don't think for a second he can write himself a 30 year contract till the day he retires, unless he achieves the previous sentence.

I wanted coach Grant when BG left. I'm glad he was given the opportunity when AM moved on and I think in the end we'll all be very happy. What I'm struggling here with is why aren't you letting AM go? Follow him at IU if you really like him but the next chapter of UD basketball is now, not 2014. If AG fails, then you can gloat all you want about the "wrong" choice. I keep wondering why it appears you want AG to fail? As a UD FAN, shouldn't you be at least wanting AG to succeed? BTW, this season isn't over...

OOPS ! And here we are, 3 weeks later at GW. Hopefully it was not an aberration. Best news is he has another 3 months to improve even more and develop consistency.
