18-22 yo not withstanding, it’s different when you go up a level. Also, it was 5 games in 8 days and a player like Ticket went from playing maybe 2 mpg to playing 37 mpg.

I get that but these players are all in great shape. If you want to talk about depth issue so that Ticket didn't need to play 37mpg, I can get on board with that. But let's stop blaming our schedule for why we lost to JMU. We played awful and lost which happens so its all good. A letdown after a big win happens in every sport at every level but this whole “we we didn’t have time to break down film is bs”. What happened to the “we will play anyone anywhere” mindset. Are we going to use that excuse in the ncaa tournament where we have 1 day off in between games. I don’t blame CKE for saying it as he is taking the blame off the players and putting it on himself but it’s just not true.

You seem to contradict yourself here. You say to stop blaming the schedule for the loss and then you go ahead and blame the schedule for our loss. Hmmm....

I don't think anyone is making excuses. CKE seems to be doing a self evaluation of his performance and taking responsibility for things that are in his control. He seems to think we won Maryland in spite of some poor play and thinks with more time work with the team on those deficiencies before moving onto JMU, he could have addressed the issues he saw. I'll take this any day over a coach just saying we lost because of a letdown. The former means he thinks it can be fixed, the latter is just giving up on that type of situation.

I'll take a coach that reflects on his performance and tries to improve it and makes it his responsibility to ensure the players learn any day over the attitude of our previous two coaches where it seemed that it was just blamed on the players failing to do what they were told to do.
