Please let it be known that my level of frustration isn't over the top. We have competed game in and game out and that is what I expect of a well-coached ball club. Now don't get me started about the football team, particularly the SC game. Man I can set your hair on fire with some of flames I would spewing.
I think why I am most frustrated is for 2 reasons: First, TR just isn't as clutch as he has been in years past. The scoreless period against OSU ultimately fell on TR who just made bone head play after play by forcing things. Second, I am always a guy looking to the next season. Some fans like those at Duke, UNC and UCLA look to their next year's recruits while as a COug I look to returning experience. It just pains me when I think about the returners for next year and that is what frustrates me about this year because I want us to accomplish something with Baynes, TR, Forrest and Harms because they won't be back. Give me the NIT at least fellas. I guess a .500 overall record won't kill me either because if .500 is the bottom for us now, I'll take it.
I like Capers I really do, but he is much more behind offensively than KW. Weaver couldn't hit an outside shot, but he was more fluid with the mid range game. I don't think Capers even has a mid range shot.
Harthun has been disappointing to say the least, but there must be something about him as he was one of the first guys lately to get into the game. TB sees something in practice. But TB must not do a lot of pressing in practice because Harthun doesn't handle it well in games.
Here is to hoping that Motum/Watson can fill out our 4 spot and Thames can be our 1 and that we hopefully find either a 2 or 3 who can flat out score.
