Terrible snd half, I'm beginning to think at best we might just be a top 10 team, someone's got to step up and bust the zone, It was embarrasing to say the least at home. No field goals for what 12 minutes?
Still a diehard Bruin though. Just call um like I see um!

Football's over & no one cares about or watches Floyd's boys so this is all they have to occupy their time. why don't you go "fight on" somewhere else...

Good morning bruin fans. Papa thought it would be a good day to visit. What a pathetic loss yesterday. How many minutes did it take for us to score a bucket? Well, now the economy has hit the tank, the donor can no longer afford to pay big dollars to our current players. It is sad but true. No wonder why we have already lost three games. These players need money fast, cars will also do. If we do not pay them soon, the dynasty will be officially over. Oh wait, we haven't won a championship forever, I guess you could say were the buffalo bills of basketball!! Howland is turning out to be a fraud. We will be lucky to get out of the first round this year. At least we can look forward to Football. I feel a five win season coming on, I am proud to be a bruin.

Not playing Gorden is uncalled for. He is very aggressive defensively and seems to always make things happen. I agree with Howland, but it's too late now. Starters weren't getting the job done. Roll shooting air balls and Holiday can't buy a hoop. Great freshman class this team is supposed to have, but you can help out on the pine. It'd be nice to see Howland win a big game on National TV. Big exposure again and a big bust ending.

For the life od me, I can not comprehend why with all the quick and athletic guys on the team, they litterelly freeze with the ball and resort to 3 point shots the whole game, when going against a zome defense.

Why does Ben Howland not implement an offenseve scheme to use these quick and athletic players he recruited? Why not penerate into the paint and make the other team foul you? ASU had 2 team fouls with 4 minutes left in the game.

I surely hope something was learned from this game. My goodness, I must have counted 5 3-point shot that were short and about 3 air-balls in the last 3 minutes...all about fatigue.
