So, if the Redbird players make their shots and make their free-throws in the last two minutes and win, Dan out-coached BJ, But, if the Redbird players miss their shots and miss their free-throws in the last two minutes and lose, than BJ outcoached Dan. Guess that takes all of they credit, or blame, off the guys actually playing the game.
Kinda like when DJ had an opportunity to put the game away with two free throws at the end of regulation in the game last Saturday, but missed and the Panthers scored two points to send it to overtime, BJ outcoached Dan. But, If DJ would have made one (or both) of the free-throws, than Dan outcoached BJ.
Maybe the players should sit and let Dan and BJ throw on the uniforms and play the last two minutes.
A loss is a loss. I don't care if you lost by 30 or 2. Anyways, i think we have to shoot well to win...because that's what our offense is...Chuck 3's.

Ultimately yeah, the HC is responsible for recruiting and retaining the players he needs for the team to succeed; and as a teacher/coach working with 18-22 year olds, should be the first guy accepting blame for loses and giving credit to players for success.

I just threw $150 on Indiana State and $350 on Missouri State to win the MVC tourney. Half of proceeds will go to Feed My Starving Children Organization. Great odds for 2 teams that can not only be a match up problem but will both be playing with a chip on their shoulder and something to prove (more from the coaching staff). I just think this is the typical year where our top 2 teams fall short of winning arch madness and get snubbed by NCAA the following Sunday.

Any pre-game gatherings before tonight? I would assume ballpark village is open.

I think we all know this is not a possibility but how funny would it be if we got hot and won this thing. In fact I bought a Costco size box of popcorn just in case. That would make this the best message board ever! Now back to reality birds lose by 3 tonight.

What about the fact Jacobsen drew up a play where he got essentially a layup to tie the game and send it to OT? Dan clearly didn’t have the smarts to think ahead and plan a defense to win the game.

MSU certainly has the talent to win three, not sure they can put them together back-to-back-to-back.

I think if Ramblers win Friday they are in, especially if their loss were to one of DU, MSU or ISU (blue). Drake should get in (lots of P5/BE flotsam and jetsam being sold as "doing enough" (which could mean as little as one quality win out of ten attempts)) but will not be given any benefit of doubt due to injuries. MAYBE if they lose a tight one to LU in the final, anything short of that.

Amazing that Dan’s players chucked up 29 3’s. Horrible coaching by Dan.
BJ’s offense only chucked up 28 3’s.
Mahorcic only scored 20 points down low on 8-9 shooting , while Phyfe scored 18 points down low.

Both are playing on Thursday! One is playing without their best player (injured). The other can't recruit. Also, forgot to mention Jacobson has been to the NCAA Tournament twice since Muller has been here.

I sure hope you are right but we have seen this movie before... and it's very depressing
