Fired Bill Carmody: Surprise guest post!

Surprise guest post!

since i missed last night's home defeat to Wisconsin, i figured i'd take the easy way out. here is an unedited email i received from a friend at 12:07am ET regarding the game.

I just got to say that I'm fucking sick and tired of this bullshit. This is complete and utter fucking bullshit. Seriously. If that motherfucker can't figure out that we lose leads late against good teams every damn year that we should win because he plays 6-7 players every game (tonight Rowley played while Marcotuillo only got some token action), then he should recruit me to play as a walk on. There is absolutely no fucking point in having Curletti, Freundt and Capocci rotting on the bench at a cost of $50,000 per year each. Hell, donate that money toward world fucking peace and just get walk-ons. Late in games we start losing the battles to loose balls, give up too many offense rebounds and have way too many reach-in fouls. My stupid rec league coach when I was 12 could even tell me that those are tell-tale due to fatigue.

If that motherfucker can't get his damn players to shoot free throws, hire Rick Barry to teach them how to shoot underhanded. How many damn times are we going to lose leads late because we can't hit the front ends of one-on-ones (or just miss them both when we shoot two)? Also, in ten damn years, how has he not found ONE center who can shoot from distance other than Vince Scott (and I'm being kind with that one) when your damn offense is predicated on having a center who can shoot? Maybe Davor if I'm being really kind. When Rowley comes in, we play 4-on-5 on offense. And when Luka is in there, you're scared every time he has the ball because he's going to try some spin move that'll end in disaster (that said, he did play pretty well tonight minus the airball from 3).

How does your opponent shoot miss TEN field goals in a row and still only trail by 3? And Trevon Hughes had ONE fucking point at that point. ONE!!!!!!!!! And no Leuer!

You can't even blame this on Wisconsin having better athletes. Those guys are whiter than our guys and just as non-athletic. Sure, Trevon Hughes is a good player, but it's not like I'd pick him over Shurna if we were playing at CCI. You can't blame this on Coble being out. Leuer is out too. You can't blame this on being tired from playing a great opponent in the last game. Wisconsin just beat Purdue with their best/second-best player getting hurt during the game.

I don't even know if I can take this any more...

Guess who just got a co-blogger? I can't argue with much of that, except to say two things. One, we are actually better, we were playing them even and they are a good team, which makes losing and bad coaching even worse and more amplified. Two, everyone's figured out the 1-3-1. Let's move on to another gimmick defense or something else. I was relieved when we came out in something different, but when we went to it, they scored nearly every time and was obvious they were prepared for it and had plays to run. Every Big Ten team has been ready for it. Free throws-terrible. And run plays for Shurna. Coach or something.

Instead of apparently poisoning them with the fake coaching, how about he just sit there and where the suits and do nothing? Let the kids rely on what they already know, might be better. Or just get Fitzgerald to do it.

there's a reason Curletti, Capocci and Fruendt don't play: they are bad at basketball. They are definitely wastes of scholarships, but the problem is bad recruiting. Capocci is a black hole on offense, and Fruendt couldn't have defended one of Wisconsin's guards if he were allowed to use a two-by-four. Curletti and Rowley are similarly ineffective, take your pick between those two.

The centers who can't shoot complaint is legitimate.

I want not approve on it. I over warm-hearted post. Specially the title attracted me to read the intact story.

He makes some compelling points, but all the bad language doesn't help get people on your side. It's just unnecessary.

Note: I am just as irritated as everyone else, and I blame this one on Carmody. Poor free throw shooting is at least partly on the coaches. And every time Wisconsin got an offensive rebound late I wanted to scream. The 1-3-1 was effective most of the game, but you have to get out of it when it's not working. Play that type of defense against Purdue tomorrow and it's going to be a long day, because they can pass.
