This could be Mikes worst team he has ever had at ND. No students, no team, except the imports from vvs and proctor. Glory days are over at ND and alot of schools these days.

Notre Dame is so cash poor that it cannot possibly survive for 10 more years. Parents don't want to pay for their kid to go to a school where the walls are crumbling around them and the education is sub-par. It doesn't surprise me that even the mighty basketball program is suffering. The idea of a Catholic school in this day and age is antiquated. Now it is a safe school, I'll give you that.

The coaching staff looks "tired and too old school". Is all the screaming, ranting and belittling supposed to help motivate kids or intimidate them to the point where they can't function? Because this is what you have with your coaching staff. The success you experienced for many years was in large part due to a small group of superstars you once had like Plonesh, Burton, Moore, and now Pittman. Your reign is now over and a new rebuilding process must begin. And it should start with a new, younger coaching staff (young adults who can relate better to kids)who can instruct in a constructive way. You have no tactical thinkers from a coaching perspective. In battle you need a plan - a back up plan - and a back up back up plan.

Why are 3 or sophomores playing on the varsity team that would only be halfway decent players on the JV team. Anyone know why? Maybe there are a couple of coaches kids on the JV team that would only be playing on the JV team if they brought the other kids up to the varsity. Way to go ND. Once again, your aint foolin anyone. Hey, maybe Macchione should coach>

I hope ND keeps it's reputation for fair play and never giving up through tough times. NH's athletic program has lost all integrity in this way despite having a great Boys B-Ball Team this year. I hope it doesn't happen to one of our great competitors and rivals - ND.

You people KILL me. Lose a couple of games and all of a sudden, the coaching staff is no good. MD s the best high school basketball coach within 100 miles of this area. He has been for all of these years, now, all of a sudden, he can't coach? You are a moron. Keep posting.......you make a fool of yourself.

Agree 100%. If you start beating each other up you'll go the way of NH and every decent coach you have will be bullied out, you'll lose your integrity as a hard-playing but fair-playing competitor, and have nothing but self serving, foul mouthed, bullies to teach your kids all the wrong things about athletics and life. Stay together ND like the great fans and competitors you are.

Non of these teams or schools ever even produced a doctor let alone star ball player. NH Proctor and ND kids are all emotionally unadjusted and never get far. Still waiting to hear of one star player from any of these failurefarms!
Worst education systems in the state there and all these babbling rejects can think of who throws ball farthest lol! See you at the Kmart checkout line boys!
History simply doesn't lie and can't be denied no matter how loud you blattass.

Absolutely disagree! Like him or not, Randall at least has a strategy for every game they play and will pick apart an opponent based upon what they give him. What's funny to me is ND's coaching staff receives all of the credit for their teams successes, throughout the years, but never any of the criticism. They have had (throughout the years) a handful of dominant players that clearly carried the entire ND team on their backs. Take away the handful of superstars that they have had and you have a mediocre team with a losing record. Let's call a spade a spade!

Lol. You disprove your own statement.lol. if ND has had only 'a handful of superstars' over the years how do you account for their overwhelming won-loss record if not for coaching?

I can't beleive I'm even reading this! They have a soft more point guard a freshmen playing the 2 another freshmen first off the bench. With the two guards alone in the future you stick 3 decent role players around them they are going to be very good. Have you even paid attention who they played? Fair port top 5 in the state in AA! Albany Acad top 15 in the state in AA! New Hartford top 15 in the state in A! Norwitch #8 in the state in B! Watervaliet #2 in the state in B! Wtf they play top state ranked teams and give all but Fairport a game and you are talking shit. By the way Simon didn't play against New Hartford or Fairport! It's funny you say one of the worse Nd teams ever but they are playing the top teams in our area! In the jugglers classic Albany acad and Nazareth and I beleive Bishop Ford another AA power house is in it. I WIll TELL THIS BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT THIS THREAD IS ABOUT ANYWAYS ND WILL BEAT PROCTOR!!!!!!!!!
Beat proctor.... Laughable. Nh has outstanding guards that neutralized proctors pressure. Und has nothing like the Henderson kids. Proctor would win by 20
