Steele had a rookie moment yesterday with a T in a 2 Point game with 3 mind tes to go. No matter what happens at that point in game, the Head Coach can not receive a T under any circumstance!

Totally agree. That isn't why they lost the game, though.

X needs two major things:
1) A point guard who can run the offense and make good decisions with the ball.
2) Scruggs and Marshall to mature as basketball players, realizing -- especially at crunch time -- that their tendency to play "hero ball" at crunch time isn't a good idea.

knew it would be a tough year for the Muskies with Steele having to put a hodge-podge team together with no depth because of lack of recruiting by Mack. next year's class looks pretty good, though.

also the growing pains of a first year head coach. he will learn and get better.

things i didn't think would happen: Q regressing as much as he has (not sure if it's injuries or whatever) and Naji being this inconsistent. they both force the issue too much and it shows in their large # of turnovers.

one thing is clear - this is Paul Scruggs' team. that dude is easy to get behind and cheer for.

future is bright for the Muskies. just probably not the future of this season.

but anything can happen.
