Subject: Andy Helwig???

Great job in the post-game Mike Wallace. How in the hell can you not ask about Reese??? What a freakin' joke.

I thought the same! My only defense of Helwig might be Witherspoon signaled "don't even ask" on his way to the table.

Isn't Helwig still a Canisius student too? Very young guy working these games by himself. Makes it easy for Reggie to dictate interview content. Just a theory.

And I think Helwig is a good announcer with a nice future in broadcasting.

Not sure if Helwig is still a student. I would certainly hope not.

But if Reggie gave him the cut sign, then shame on him. That makes this fiasco tonight even worse. Address it and at least give the standard "it's a team matter" response. Not even mentioning it is insulting to the few people who still really care and would appreciate knowing why you don't win games that you could/should.

The beat goes on. Waxed by Bona, UB, and Niagara. Two home wins all year. ADVOCARE joke. Go Griffs! ???

Play by play guys aren't there to ask tough questions. If Andy grilled Reggie, Andy probably would have to find another announcing gig.

Play by play guy? He does the post-game interview. Then don't have one. "Ummm can you tell us why your best player didn't play?" Really hard hitting reporting. Joke.

I’m just gonna say this...helwig is a student still. Has a bright future in broadcasting and will continue to be a strong announcer moving forward past Canisius.

To ask the question is absolutely something we all want to know, but to have to ask in a post game knowing full well the ramifications of the answer that’s about to come it’s tough. As it is, the answer you for was “in hour issue” so if you wanted those three words said, I just posted it.

Lay off the kid and honestly why is this even a conversation.! He’s a broadcaster, the comments should be directed toward the freaking x’s And o’s of the mediocre coach he ends up interviewing.

D1 coaches are some of the most overly sensitive and vindictive people in the world. Direct your frustrations at the coach, not at a guy basically volunteering to help promote the program.

Griff...the point you’re trying to make is that you wanted the question asked. It was asked in the post game press conference where every other question has ever been asked. When Coach K or Coach Cal are asked hard questions it’s a televised press conference done by professional reporters who have been on the beat for years longer than Andy has been alive. Nobody asked Reggie why Faulkner didn’t play big minutes at the start of MAAC play or why he’s decided that Hitchon should start and not play meaningful minutes down the stretch. Do you want those answers too? I know I do but I don’t expect Andy to ask.

I understand your want for the answer but again not the right time. Coach answered the question.

Come on. Asking why your best player didn't play against Niagara is a little different than why Faulkner didn't play in he first few MAAC games. Then don't have a post-game interview if nothing meaningful can be addressed. "Griffs lost see you Friday."

And I actually think Helwig does an overall outstanding job. Especially by himself. And in and of itself, that says a lot about this program that a current student (regardless of his ability) is doing games by himself. But I digress..

The point is that the question needed to be asked and answered. If Helwig was instructed to not ask the question, then shame on the program. If he chose not to ask it, I go back to my initial criticism. Maybe a current student who can't ask wildly obvious questions shouldn't be doing games

Helwig is still a student but REGARDLESS, he works for the athletic department. Whatever happened with Reese was disciplinary-related and nobody that works in house is going to ask that question and try and hang out the dirty laundry of the program. Use your head.

That's quality reporting. Use your head? Then do away with the post-game interview if you can't simply ask why your best player didn't play in one of the biggest games of the year. What's the point?

If you’re and Head Coach or an administrator, you don’t want your own people asking that question or sniffing around a problem. Don’t draw more attention to it. And yeah, use your head, nobody in the Canisius athletic department cares about what you want.

They care when no one donates or buys season tickets. Obviously attending a few games over the last three years has made you all knowing lol.
