An analysis of 10-16 record
« on: February 21, 2018, 12:52:09 PM »
Quick look in hindsight on what this team COULD be with a decent coach, bad losses, blown leads.


Oregon - Poor end of game execution, OT Loss
Illinois - Bad Loss
Northwestern - Bad Loss
Xavier - 16 point second half lead with 17:40 to play
Providence, 12 point second half lead with 17:02 to play
Gtown (home) - Down 1 in second half with 9:44 to play
Creighton (home) - Blown lead end of game
STJ (road) - DePaul up 4 with 4:41 to play
SHU - DePaul down 2 with :28 to play

Even if we SPLIT these 9 losses, we are at 15-11, and who knows what an actually GREAT coach does in these games. WE could have been talking NIT.

You are opening up a can of worms on this. There is a potential argument by the pro-DL faction that the fact that DePaul was competitive enough to be leading these teams shows he is a good coach. Now if people believe that or not, that is on them. However, it is no different than when Cheddar pointed out to me last year that DePaul was only _ amount of points away from having _ more wins. I responded DePaul was only _ number points away from having _ more losses.

In Pat Kennedy's last year we blew 9 double digit leads. 

This year is very similar.   That is a product of bad coaching.

I agree FJ, but the number and manner of losses point to a lack of preparedness and lack of in game coaching that wonít improve.  Thatís my point.

I agree. However, if we have learned anything about people, they will find ANYTHING to support their argument.

You can honestly make an argument for last season as well. Soooooo, basically Laydown gets you to crunch time only to lose.

when made, the hire was mocked, laughed and given a WTF.  Every day that reaction is being validated.  the hire of dave leitao at that time for the program was an absolute death blow.  like i really have absolutely no idea the thought process knowing what was on the horizon fro the program (new arena, etc...)  its just seems like such an odd decision b/c everything you factor points to "this is not a good idea"
