    Manning’s post-game presser (Miami)

    Calling it right now:

    Puts on eyeglasses.

    Glances at stat sheet.

    Looks up to the press before speaking.

    And action!

    “Well I thought we did some good things blah blah...credit to Miami, they did enough good things to win the basketball game...blah blah”

    What insight!

    If alcohol poisoning doesn't intimidate you, try "touches in the paint".
    Oh Heavens Yes!

    It seems like Manning is almost ready to start using the [name redacted] special of "winning halves" like it is some sort of achievement or game of record unto itself.

    Do we ever win a half?

    Manning’s post-game presser (Miami)

    At one of these post game press conferences some needs to ask him to tell us exactly how they practice defense. What kind of drills do they do? How much time do they spend on it? Etc...
    Birds are real.

    I bet we do well enough (comparatively) in first halves but second halves are ugly

    Unfortunately, the questions toward Manning (future [censored])are pretty vanilla.

    In all honesty, I've wondered if we practice at all. We are terrible at fundamentals, and haven't shown any improvement since the first game. If we do practice, then it seems we are just wasting time.

    Seriously it does make you wonder what do we practice? It's like we never improve during the season under Manning and we are never the team that comes out in the 2nd half and looks like we made some adjustments and are motivated to take the game over. At least not against any decent opponent. Danny Manning has been terrible and the only reason he might get another head job after we finally rid ourselves of him, would be his name. Some AD as dumb as Wellman might hire because of that, but no other reason.

    I've watched some videos of practice and it seemed to be all shooting drills, nothing more. Manning coaches like he has nba players

    My theory all along is this is a case of a great player making a very poor coach. It's almost like he expects his players to have the level of skill, basketball IQ and desire he had and sees no reason to coach/teach any of those things.

    Sounds right. It is amazing that none our guards really ever got better under Manning. Practice should be a lot of decision making simulating game conditions.

    Manning has to be a really bad practice coach for his players to improve so little over time.

    You really can't blame any of the guys for leaving first chance they got.

    Yeah I know right. Unfortunately as much as I love R. Chill, I think he may be cut from the same cloth as Manning as a coach.
