Please help me. I am a helpless Cat (fan). Our men’s team just played one of its best games of the year, yet still lost by 15 points at #10/#11 Michigan State 70-55. We had 2 free throws and don’t even pretend to care about rebounding. We are 0-10 in conference and heading for a certain goose egg on the season. You want worse? Our women’s team is far WORSE than the men’s team. They are 0-11 right now and you got it – we’re heading for the alltime worst combined men’s and women’s conference records in the same season. Just what our fair name doesn’t need – another place in the infamy record book. The whole reason I started this damn blog was to at least portray a positive image about NU FB since we’ve been more than respectable since 1995. I’m at wits end with hoops – ESPECIALLY considering several coaches I know and ADs think the women’s job at NU is a no-brainer perennial Top 25 program. When I was in school the women were drawing what the men draw now and the games were fun – and we were tourney-bound regularly. What a disaster. I don’t mean any disrepect to the hard-working players, but it is time for some sweeping change.
Please, Mr./Ms. AD-To-Be – step right in and make your mark. If I watch another Georgetown game where the offense is nearly the same scheme, but the major difference is the talent – ESPECIALLY the presence of a big man – I’m going to be sick.
