I can't say I'm surprised by what happened. Maybe I was surprised it wasn't worse. Like Secaur, I'm beaten down. I'm tired. Tired of UD teams fading down the stretch. Tired of not even seeing Xavier in the distance anymore because we're so far behind.
I'm just fed up. I'm sick of hearing how things would have been different if Chris Wright had played most of the A-10 season. Guess what? No, it probably wouldn't. They'd still be fading. They would have a slightly better record but they'd still be stumbling towards the finish. Chris Wright isn't going to make them play smarter, rebound better or make free throws.
I was on the fence with Gregory with this being his "make or break" year. It's been clearly a break. He seems to be a good recruiter, but it's time to admit he's not a good motivator or coach. The Flyers have been listless on the road and the fact that they have no basketball IQ is the biggest indictment I can think of. Does anyone really think next year will be any better? Take away Roberts, and what do you have?
It's going to be a long time before UD gets better.
Ugh. I'm just depressed. I was going to say, "Hey, at least baseball season starts soon!" Then I remembered I'm a Reds fan. Shit.
UD is to Xavier as:
• the Washington Generals are to the Harlem Globetrotters
• Michigan football is to Ohio State football
• Hillary Clinton is to Barack Obama (topical humor – right here at PB&B!)
• Logic is to Brian Gregory apologists
• David West is to manhood
