    Rock Bottom!?

    Why would a team with a better coach swap coaches?

    Rock Bottom!?

    For the record, I don't think there is any team in the Big Ten that would trade straight up for Miles. I have believed for some time he is the worst coach in the conference.

    Rock Bottom!?

    I didn't name the thread. I don't think this is "rock bottom" (though, other than losing to Illinois at home, this is the worst possible conference loss they could have endured). This game just showcased all the frustrations I've had with Miles-coached teams the past several years. I'm just tired of seeing the same thing. I want change. I hoped that this season would be a step in the right direction for Miles, but the same issues plague us. The common denominator is Miles. His schtick has worn off for me and for a lot of fans. I just don't think he's cut out to be a Big Ten coach. It's fine if you do, but the results do not back that up. So I don't understand why people insist on defending him.

    Stagnant, motionless offense with poor three-point shooting and no desire/ability to rebound. That's the song and dance I'm talking about - systemic issues that have plagued Miles his entire tenure (expect for February 2014, I suppose). As for March, the results* speak for themselves. I think it would be foolish to expect anything other than 0-1 in a postseason tournament. *This image does not include the loss to Mississippi State in last year's NIT, so the total record should be 7-26.

    Sure. It's a win-win for me. Either I'm right or we have a fantastic March. I can live with either outcome!

    Rock Bottom!?

    Because he's the current coach?

    Okay. So, AT BEST, we have the 12th best coach in the conference? Neat. That will equate to winning a lot of Big Ten games...

    You guys. We are seeing the same song and dance play out. You can try to deny all you want. But March will end in disappointment like it has the past 7 years.

    Rock Bottom!?

    Yep. I've been saying that for 3 years. Too many Miles apologists on this site, though, so I stopped posting. Makes me laugh when Miles says things like, "We have to run to the fight." Does anyone buy that crap? Does anyone genuinely think 20 year-olds would follow him into a fight? Is there any team in the Big Ten that would trade their current head basketball coach straight up for Tim Miles and view it as an upgrade? (If you answer yes, you are incorrect.)

    I don't care what you call it. It's the same stuff, different names on the jerseys. Tired of Miles. He just doesn't have it. Wish he did. But he doesn't.

  12. The only thing the first four games proved is that we have increased our talent level. Feels like we get out-coached more often than not when we play a team with a similar talent level (like last night). It's discouraging and disappointing. I'm tired of it.
  13. I SO BADLY want to agree with you and I hope it was "just one game". But, unfortunately, our history of an inability to adjust in-game is still very worrisome to me. I fear Texas Tech discovered a formula to beat us and I'm not all that confident we can fix it. The issues that plagued us last night were the same issues that have plagued us for several years (stagnant offense, poor shots, etc.). And I have yet to see a game plan or coaching adjustment that addresses those issues. It really felt like we were watching the same team we had two years ago. And I don't understand how fans can continuously defend that. How is this not frustrating to all of us? I just want to win. Tired of getting kicked in the dick in big games.
  14. Why even waste your time talking about the refs and calls? We were up 15-4 and lost by 18. The refs have little to nothing to do with a 29-point swing. We lost because our coaches had no answer for Texas Tech's defensive strategy. We allowed them to constantly have a help defender on Palmer. We could have tried spreading it out, clearing the lane. We could have tried SOMETHING, but did NOTHING. As the original post in this thread said, it was the same stagnant, hesitant, timid offense. Team reflects the coach. We got Timid Miles last night.
