    HOWLAND - please listen

    You have a long athletic team, and you have 10 or so players.

    They can not shoot.

    PRESS, PLAY D and RUN.

    Quit running half court offense, and tell them to run and go to the rim. Think 40 minutes of hell.

    Don't let this year turn into last year 2.0.

    Howland is still stuck in 1980s Big East style of play.

    This team under no circumstances should ever score less than 60 points. Ever.

    Howland is about to waste the best collection of talent we've had in over a decade.

    Howland sucks. Our hoops program, much like our football program, has a coach that is stuck in the past, and that is why neither will ever win big here. The game has changed.

    If our plan is to turn Brooks into our primary 4 then I'm very concerned.

    I had a great thanksgiving up until around 730 pm. I'm gonna say last night's was just the universe making me pay for a baseball natty and a braves' WS. Hopefully the total kick in the nuts (egg bowl butt kicking, saints getting destroyed, and basketball reincarnating Rick ray) was enough of a sacrifice, and MBK bounces back today

    I tried telling some of you guys that Howland would effing blow it. He's a bad coach. He just is. Stansbury part deaux. Good recruiter, poor coach.

    I'm willing to be patient bc we have so many new pieces. Hell, Smith just played his first game last night.

    Brooks leading the team in 3-pt attempts (0-5) isn't a winning formula.

    Molinar and Moore shot horribly last night, combined 9-29. I think this is sorta flukish.

    Before sec play, I have a feeling howland is gonna have to hurt some feelings and start with smith or brooks at the 5. Matthews needs to start imo

    The reason criticism is warranted is the same reason you worried about lashley blocking 7 earlier in the week. History repeats itself when their are no changes. Anybody that expects (vs hoping) this team to be special is disregarding how bad howeland has coached at times.

    It was 1 bad shooting game, I wouldn't get too concerned just yet. If it continues then we have issues. But I relate to what some of you are saying, Howland has the most talent he has had at MSU right now... its now or never for him

    I don't think we're a 33% shooting team. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm chalking this one up to a bad night.

    It?s just another missed opportunity to get fans enthusiastic about the mens basketball program under Howland. At some point you have to show signs of beating teams with a pulse when the spotlight is on you. Otherwise youll have a Humphrey Coliseum that?s half full in February with a border line bubble team

    We have the worst fans in college basketball. Sure it was a bad loss, but everyone has bad losses in college basketball. Period.

    #10 ranked Alabama lost at home last night to Iona.

    We shot 49% from the field and 38% from three against Morehead, 59% from the field and 50% from three against Detroit, 52% from the field and 50% from three against Montana, and 48% from the field and 33% from three against North Alabama.... I know those teams are lesser competition but we have shooters and scorers on this team.. it was a bad shooting night, it happens, if it continues going forward we have issues but I would chalk this one up as a bad shooting night
