Angry More of the Same!

A bad loss to a bad team. We are inconsistent beyond belief. You never know which Bradley is going to show up for any game....At home or on the road!

When you see this team play as well as they have played at home recently, then you know the talent is there to play much better and win more of these road games. There is a problem, and we need to get it fixed. It won't matter next year that we improve if we don't fix the Jekyll & Hyde road game problem like we keep seeing (Indiana State excluded), IMO.

I agree with this Jekyll and Hyde act. Hard to believe 1 week ago we were one game out of first and playing great. Now we are basically in the middle of the pack. Hopefully get this straightened out before its to late.

Question More of the Same!

Coach.....I agree 100% with you regarding the BU level of talent. IMO this team has good enough talent to be contending for an MVC championship or at least being in the top three in the conference.
However, for some reason we have not been able to generate a high level of consistency and it now appears that we may be having problems with team members "bonding" with each other and/or the coaches. Clearly, when we play bad a high level of selfishness appears. Our coaches do not seem to be able to motivate this team and get the most out of the talent they have. For some weeks now, I have felt that something is going on with this team that causes these highs and lows in performance on any given night.

And BW did hint at this somewhat after the Drake game. I hope this problem can be solved going forward...

Unless someone unexpectedly leaves, we see most of the starters back again next year. We possibly have two recruits for next year.

A lot of fans have been hoping for a top three or four finish in the valley next year. With the makeup of the team and two recruits, do fans still think this team will finish in the top 3 or 4? Our present players should become more skilled but other teams can say the same thing.

Any thoughts?
