I haven't been this discouraged since Wissel's last season.

Our team is doing nothing right.  The key guys from last year (Davis, White and Ajukwa) have seriously regressed and are playing with no confidence.

With none of the big three effective, we have a huge talent deficiency against most teams.

Among the young players, Murphy and Vasic are showing promise.  However, they should only be role players and are not capable of carrying the load at this point.

This team needs a psychologist more than a coach at this point.

Examining the schedule, not sure when we win again.  Could be stuck on three wins for a while.

.    Nope. I can admit, I was wrong about this team and apparently about price. My only defense in expecting more is the regression of JD (especially), AW and AA. Those guys have gone backwards big time. Who saw that coming?

Davis with more turnovers than points, 6 - 5. We can't win when this happens.

This is the the most disappointing start to a MBB season I can remember.

At the end of the season, Judy will instruct Price to fire all the assistant coaches and not hire any new assistants until after the next recruiting cycle is over.

Since I live over this way, went to see the game today. Terrible. Turned the ball way to much. Lots of fouling that was unnecessary. Players actually yelling at each other. Davis at this point is way over rated. Bad rebounding.
At my age the only thing that gets hard is my arteries.

I watched the Panthers game instead today, but threw this game on for background noise afterwards while piddling around the house. ESPN3 is solid. Even paying only partial attention, couldn't help noticing that Chatt went on a 14-0 run, Davis got Benched, Charlotte went on an 11-0 run and tied the game up at half. Second half traded baskets with Davis on bench, Price puts David back in, Chatt quickly goes on another 14-0 run to seal the game.

Did White even play? I didn't notice.

Forget regression, that is straight up cancer. WTF is going on in that locker room?

This program is so broken that I'm starting to believe in Metros black helicopters. Literally competing to be the worst program in D1A athletics. Both revenue sports utterly hopeless... like it was intended.

If Dubois and Judy devised a plan to destroy athletics, it could not have been done any better than this. You wouldn’t change anything or else it would be obvious it was intentional. Just a truly amazing orchestration of killing this department. They somehow added football only to make the pile of s*** larger.

Well done, sir, well done.

The Price era has been a complete disaster. Please quit using the AD as an excuse.
Only one person to blame for a 49er team to lose to UTC by 14 is the
head coach. The team plays with zero effort. The only thing a Coach Price team
is good at is getting technical fouls. They have had more then any other Niner coach
combined. Two more today. This is an embarrassment.

Price so lazy. Lutz used to get his own technicals.

Actually had three technicals called  - one each for Ajukwa, Garvin, and Vasic.

Ironically, Bobby's technicals is one of the reasons Phil wanted him gone.

Up until this point I have been against firing coach Price this year.

But I want him gone. This team is lost mentally and emotionally. There is no team. This is possibly the worst Niners team of all time.

At this point the best thing Price can do for our program is leave in a blaze of glory, and tell all about how much harder Judy makes things than they have to be. 

For the record, I don't think price is that bad.  I think when you get handed chicken crap it's really hard to make chicken salad.  When you have somebody dumping chicken crap on your head while you are trying to make the chicken salad, the best you are going to do is an e-coli outbreak. 

Even if Mark Price were the worst coach alive, which he isn't, at some point this crap has to fall on Judy.  How people choose not to see that is beyond me.

Price clearly isn't as good as I expected him to be. However, there is something more going on here with our older players (specifically JD). Remember, JD was not that highly recruited but looked like a great steal for 2 seasons under Price, even being touted nationally as a top 20 guard. Now, suddenly, he looks like crap EVERY game.......that makes no sense. Same goes for AA and AW, perhaps to a slightly lesser extent.

I don't want to get in the way of the train, but Judy doesn't recruit these kids, and she doesn't coach them.  While I am sure she has input into the assistant coaching hires, I think it is mostly veto power.  Price started with a big hill to climb, but it is hard to see any progress, and making progress is the job.

By the way, as a coach Judy went 93-56 (62%) with a program she built from scratch.  Maybe she should make Lambert the DC and take the clipboard.  ;)

I get that you are ultimately directing this at Judy, and I agree it's ultimately her responsibility, but Price is still a terrible coach.

His best season was his first season. So any talk of what he was left with is irrelevant when we get worse each year. He is so bad he makes Major look good. Consider that. We have a 50/50 shot of winning less than 10 games this season per RPIForecast.

I get that Judy is responsible for hiring him and I fully blame her for that. But being the HC of the 300th worse program in the country and then blaming it solely on your AD is probably not a good look. I do hope he resigns though.


Also, my new theory (read: "hot take") is that Hudson hasn't taken a monumental step forward, he's just the only one actually fighting out there for his dad. Everyone else seems utterly dejected.

*edit*

Also, many of us thought this was a good hire, and I was certainly not against it. So, it's not like we are that great at picking coaches either. Or maybe we were just so devastated by the Major era that we couldn't see straight. But by that theory, that wouldn't bode well for the future, cuz this is even worse.

Hudson is our best player right now.  Murphy also played hard yesterday.

It is shocking how bad Mark Price has this team playing.

You can't blame the AD for how bad Price's team has looked this year. She is the same AD Alan Major had. Major teams
competed against Power 5 teams, not lose by 25. Major teams played hard. Clayton & Henry brought it every night. Blaming
the AD is total crap. Quit blaming the AD & look at what's on the court.

Is Judy making the men's team practice at 5AM some again this year?  They look like they have been.
