Welp, I guess I was wrong about Bacari being gone for good. It keeps my streak of predictions intact. I'm glad to be wrong. I was about to start a "FREE BACARI NOW!" protest outside Vowels' office.

UP, I really wanted to be at this game, too. But I had to see a therapist about my pathological lying on public forums. And I had to work, too. Well, mainly I had to work...but then again, I do lie a bit on these forums.Toledo games are usually good. I've seen them both at Calihan and at Savage. I like that arena in Toledo quite a bit. Nothing really dramatic but well designed.

From a look at the stats and listening on the radio, Jr. is having a good game. I like that a lot.

At least he had a good first half.

By the way, UP, come on down. If you do, let me know so I can try to make the game. You're missed around here.

Does the other coach a favor and then when we are down by 4, now he puts Allen and Chatman back in. We do not have a firm rotation in our 9th game? Sort of reminds me a lot of his poor coaching last year. Where are our so called fans? Guess I'll have to drive 550 miles to put someone in the seats seeing as some on here can not drive a half hour to show support.


To be fair, it may be the 9th game but it's only like BAs second.

This team is atrocious on defense. For the most part they try to hustle, but they are nearly always out of position. What do I know though? Maybe that's the "chaos" defense.

Jr is a major liability on defense. He appears to be a very good shooter when he's open. Problem is he takes the open ones and forces more. He also needs to work on going somewhere when he dribbles. You never feel like he'll get his pocket picked, yet you never feel like he'll go by anybody. Hopefully that's an area he improves quite a bit while he's in school.

Toledo has 12 more rebounds than us. 34-22. 12 offensive rebounds. 14 second chance points. That is why we are losing.

Yep. If we cut down on that and played better defense, we'd be up 12.

We are playing terribly. Half a step slow. No fundamentals under the boards. Very disheartening - especially after all of the drama of the past 4 weeks. On top of that, attendance sucks.

Worst game of the year for Chatman - except maybe Seattle.

This is as good as Blasckshear has looked. Silver lining, maybe?

I’ve witnessed 6 offensive passes for Detroit since I started watching 6 minutes into the second half - pretty sure that is not a good recipe for success

This team, for all it's issues, has decent talent. The future really could be bright.

Oakland and NKU lose today too, the Horizon is up for grabs.

All we need is a coach. I said to my wife that we need to pull back to a mid court zone, not allow a long pass and make them make a 3/4 court shot. Instead we pick them up, risk a foul and allow the long pass.

Never would have come down to the last play if we rebounded their missed shots in the first half. We were lucky to have made it this close. Though I don't know why we had a 6'1" guy on a 6'7" guy at the end.

Knew it would be an exciting game. I thought we were looking at overtime before that last shot.

HL is a total joke. In other news, Loyola is 8-1 and having a close battle with #5 Florida right now. Good thing they dominated HL and proved themselves before leaving.
