A "real" coach calls time-out very early in 2nd half and gets the team's attention ( [deleted] chewing and/or
bench time) before lead is seriously cut into.

Good grief, posts like this are what’s wrong with this country. Team of kids loses a game and suddenly some tool has a crippling need to start a fight with a group of people based on some ridiculous general statement.

Go have a drink and settle down. It’ll all be ok.

Those of you who did not listen to the Joe Lunardi segment during the game should go back and listen.

After losses the Gtown and Georgia, we lack the quality Q1 wins and Q2 wins and we really don't have the opportunities left on schedule to pick them up. Since December - this team never has or had a chance at NCAA at-large tournament bid (barring running the table starting this morning in Philly). Loss at Temple is fairly inconsequential in the overall season.

Get your tickets to Dickeys sports arena in Ft. Worth for the AAC Tourney - our best bet is the auto bid - and with the AAC conference parity this year, you never know. SMU can get hot and win three - especially if we can establish Moody-West. Everything between now and then is just prepping for the AAC tourney.

Absolutely correct that the only chance this team has to make the NCAA is going to be the auto-bid for the AAC, but I think we need to see if this team can beat Houston and Wichita State at Moody before we even allow ourselves to think winning that tourney will be possible. Question I have after this loss is whether this team can finish strong enough to at least get the NIT invite.

I thought the decision to match Temple's small lineup was horrible. Absolute disaster, and we didn't try to correct until Davis picked up his fourth foul with a minute left in regulation.

No one is attacking the players, but nice attempt to deflect.
Jank has shown he is incapable of building a team that competes at a high level and can play a full game.
Blowing a huge lead against an undermanned mid-tier team in the conference is not acceptable. Period.

I wasn’t saying anyone was attacking the players. Just pointing out that being unable to handle a team of kids losing and feeling the need to assert your manhood in an online forum shows the kind of immaturity and entitlement that is a plague in society right now.

In all honesty this season was over before it started with that schedule Jank & Hart compiled. None of this surprises me. We are essentially competing for an 8 seed in the NIT

We lost a road game in which we were the underdog, sure, it sucks that we lost such a big lead, but it happens.

Tulsa lost to UCF and Cincy lost to UCONN.

We still are in line to get a bye for the conference tournament.

No need to start the meltdown prematurely, still a lot of basketball left to be played.
Probaly won't happen...BUT...maybe it will!!

From a coaching perspective, again, switching to play small ball in the second half changed the game for Temple, and SMU trying to match it was a disaster.

That said - be careful for what you wish for. Next year's team with McNeil and an extra year of experience would have, what, 3 losses with this schedule at most? Possibly only 2?

Sophomore seasons:
Davis - 53%, 31%, 87%, 4.8 reb, 7.3 assists, 2.5 TO, 15.8 pts
Moore - 49%, 44%, 82%, 2.3 reb, 4.9 assists, 2.4 TO, 13.6 pts

And that is with Moore getting to sit out a season to learn the offense.

Whatever happens, make sure you don't throw next season away. Blowing the team and roster up before next season would be an absolutely horrible decision.

If we allow Tim Jankovich to fill another 4-5 ships next cycle, it will set the rebuild back another 1-2 years.

Tim was handed a program with 4 NBA players, an engaged fanbase and great facilities, and threw it all away. And I don’t want to hear any BS about sanctions; Tim didn’t do [deleted] with the scholarships he had while we were on probation.
