I've had season tickets for 17 years now and have sat through my share of bad basketball season but this might be the worse one ever. Even with the roster flip the last 2 years, still felt like we could win more than 7 games. I drank the Kool-aid and really thought this was going to be the breakthrough year. Man, was I wrong. This team is in no way enjoyable to watch. They are doing less with more talent. Fred doesn't seem to have any answers or a clue to how to even fix it. He just let's this team have free rein to shoot whenever and from where ever it wants to. I used to think Doc had to short of leash when he pulled players for making one mistake but Fred has way to long of leash. We have no movement of offense, the ball just sticks in Verge's hand or Bryce. I watch other teams where the ball moves quickly and it ends up with an open shot. Fred talks how good of shooting team this is and I'm sure in practice, that is true but in a game, it feels like everyone has to create their own shot and we never get wide open looks.
Can't tell if it's a chemistry issue or Fred is just allowing games to be a showcase for the kids to try and get to the NBA but either way, this is an absolute train wreck. I keep hearing that if we fired Scott and Fred who are you going to get but at this point, I'd almost take my chances. Can it be any worse? We might not even get to 7 wins this year. I felt when they kept Frost that the standards have definitely been lowered at Nebraska that you keep a coach who has a horrible winning percentage and can't even make a bowl game in 4 straight years. I'm thinking the same thing about Fred who most likely won't reach double digits wins in three straight years.
Fred did great things at Iowa State but has done nothing since then. It's looking more and more like this is not a match made in heaven. It might be time to look in a new direction as you can tell from the crowd size that people have no interest or faith in Fred anymore. As much as I was thinking we'd be building statues of Fred outside PBA, I think it's time to part ways after this year.
