Nash is uncommitted to an up-tempo style of basketball. He talks it in the preseason; that's probably a recruiting tool he uses. But he doesn't go through with it. If the players seem unsure of themselves during the games, trying to run a halfcourt offense, it's not their fault. Hiram Thompson is a gamer, Roderick Flemings has shown his skills, Dwain Williams can score. Paul Campbell is about the only guy who gives anything on defense, unfortunately. But when I see UH play, I see a team that doesn't get enough coaching in what they need to be doing on offense. Nash can only talk the up-and-down game, but he can't coach it. So players go into the game untaught, and end up stuck in the halfcourt. And Nash just stands there and watches them fail. He can't even call timeouts right.

Nash 'n Coach Mackmackin are good asst. coaches BUT THEY ARE NOT HEAD COACHES. i repeat, both are good assistants BUT THEY ARE NOT HEAD COACHES and the sooner the UH A.D. recognizes this, the better both programs will be in the future.

Nsah got his chance to coach and now it's time for him to move on. I hope Donovan is true to his words and not extend his contract. The basketball program is losing money by low attendence every game. I heard A. Wilson after the last game and he was right-on the problems UH has.

Bob, don't listen to all the kukai. Just be like me. Consistently hover around 500 winning percentage. Every 3 years recruit one star and ride him for 3 years. Every 5 years or so slip into a post-season tourny to have a first round loss. Stay good enough to not get fired but never progress or succeed. That's all the AD's want.

Excellent comments so far !!! It's amazing that "peanut gallery" fans are smarter than the actual coach...... Here are my facts that prove Nash is clueless:

1. pass the ball to Mayhen and Campbell on the perimeter (neither guy can pass,shoot or dribble)
2. put Flemings on the perimeter (dude hasn't made a jump shot or driven to the basket in a month
3. recruit "run and gun" guards only to stifle them in a perimeter slow-down offense.
4. hype the 7 footer Kurts and don't use him
5. no matter what is happening or what has happened on the court... Don't make ANY adjustments and run the same nauseating offense
6. congratulate the other team for playing a great game after they kick you azz.

this season has got to be the most frustrating season i have ever watched. nash is absolutely clueless and everyone on the radio continually blames the players. why does no one on the radio take a good hard look at the coach? he makes no adjustments on offense or defense, ever. he waits too long to call time outs. designed plays after time outs are non-existent. it's the same ol' same ol' offense for 40 minutes and it is not working. flemings cannot create on his own. he needs plays designed and run for him. mayen is strictly a one-dimensional player. he's a black-hole shooter. he can't pass or dribble, he can't guard the quick guards up top and he can't bang with the big boys down low. i still don't understand why he is playing at all. i don't know what balocka did, but he is an integral cog on this team. there is no way he should have been limited to 7 minutes in last night's game. inexcusable. williams is a small guard who needs screens or other movement in order to get his shot. just passing the ball around the perimeter will not get us open shots. it looks like a playground game out there sometimes. it's no wonder that the players look lost or disinterested out there. they have no clue what is going on because the coach has no clue. please donovan, enough of this. get rid of nash already! give us a coach that will coach.

You are so desperate you answer your own comments. Yikes you are a crazy one. Your brain bounces around the walls like a rebound, but you can never retrieve it to make the shot and score. No wonder we can never win we keep fighting against our own team. We lack teamwork because there is just one player YOU.
