Still pi$$ed. Missed layups. Goodin missed front end of a 1 and 1, Macura missed layup (a fake to Goodin would have left him an easy layup). Too many mistakes and potential Final Four teams do not play like that. Cooley gets the last laugh on Mack. And X limps into the NCAA with hopes of a Final Four but a Sweet 16 is more realistic. Too many exploitable weaknesses for this team. Hope I’m wrong but, I don’t think I am.
It's great having someone like Tre, who despite going into slumps, usually hits the big shots. However, he is a great defensive liability as well, that when X takes leads into the 2nd, they need to sub him out offense for D. He can't help it. He's a 6'5" slower, unathletic wing. He tries his damned best, but it's obvious how much other teams run sets towards his man. CM does it for JP, who is actually a better defender.
Like Lavin said two weeks after I originally did: No one has a better 9 than X. I think CM sometimes struggles with rotations, especially in mid-late game situations. My mom was right. There can be a negative side to having too many toys. However, X4LIFE, my so-called Board friend: Don't look for my hand to hoist you up when you want to jump back on the bandwagon. We're going to the FF, and AH will be there in person.
Sorry for fanning the flames fellow mods, but it had to be said.
