Subject: What a Frickin' Joke

I'm seriously about done with this. So if anyone wants to start a new board, knock yourself out.

After doing a lot of things well throughout, this became a complete debacle down the stretch. How in the world does White foul the 3 with 6 seconds remaining and a 2 point lead??? And despite the fact that Rider had only committed 3 fouls in 20 minutes in the second half (which is impossible and again points to awful officiating), the play you come out of after a timeout is Hadzic to Corey Brown. LOL. I can't take it.

Don't give up on it Griff - you're the one who gives us a lifeboat to sit in while we turn and watch the sinking ship! There will be better days. They need to get rid of the mentally-retired Reggie and find a coach who actually cares when they lose a game.

I'm not the only guy who believes referees are ruining the sport of college basketball. The colleges invest a ton of time and money into their programs. The talent is evenly matched among the conference. Wins/losses decided by officials who make the game about THEM and decide the outcome and final score.

The fire that he once had is gone. The program needs energy & passion. We’re running on empty.

And Reggie snoozed through crunch time and the post game interview. He needs to go to his rocking chair. He seems totally indifferent to this mess.

So tired to read Reggie’s post game comments. How about developing theses guys so they know how to handle situations like last night? Instead we do the same dumb stuff game after game. Malik & Majesty can’t do it by themselves. Scott has been playing great off the bench. Wake up Griffs, time to grow up and win some games. We play Niagara on Wednesday, it would be nice to FINALLY beat that team on their home court.

It would nice to see the 5 best players on the floor most of the game. Start and play the 5 best as much as possible. The bench has players to give them a rest, then back out on the floor. Hitchon and White started every game last year, this year they can't get in the regular starting line up. Griffs won a lot more last year. Majesty takes Molsons spot and Henderson takes Sanks spot. Harried off the bench. Why not go back to what was winning games. Start Malik, Majesty, Henderson, Hitchon and White. Then Brown and Fritz, St Louis and Hadzic off the bench for bigs. Last year Hitchon played the most minutes out of all the bigs, closely followed by Faulkner playing about 100 minutes less. This year the big playing the most is fritz by a long shot. Fritz and Hitchon have both played 20 games, both have missed 3 games. Fritz has played 535 minutes this year and has 168 pts. Hitchon has played 389 minutes and has 190 pts. So Hitchon has played 146 minutes less than Fritz in the same amount of games and has scored 22 more points. I'm not knocking Fritz he is a great freshman big. I'm confused how Hitchon and White lost their starting roles which seemed to work last year. Need to figure out who the best 8 players are and play them the most. Seems like a good idea. Only had 8 available against Marist and won. Now time use 8 with guys available to rest them a bit more. Go Griffs

Correction, Hitchon's 190 pts is 42 more points then Fritz playing 146 minutes less then Fritz. The 22pts was more then Henderson. Fritz has 148 points 20 less then Henderson's 168. Go Griffs!

Any time you can get the ball to a slow big man with 5 seconds left who:
-can’t dribble
-can’t score
-can’t rebound
-has a Doritos addiction

You do it! Well done once again Reginald!

I have a question for Griff. For some reason last evening I was unable to watch the game on ESPN3. Did anyone else have the same problem? With 5 second left, and down by a point, and Rider calling a timeout, could someone explain the final play. I just can't understand why those two big guys were involved. Griff, please don't give up. In a few short weeks it will be over. The Griffs still have 8 games to play, and with the league so down anything can happen. I"m hoping that Johnson can somehow inspire his team mates to play with some passion, and win several of the remaining games. We're not a last place team. Go Griffs!!!

Cager - I didn't have an issue getting the game on ESPN 3. Anyone else?

As for the final play, all I can guess is that with Rider only having committed 3 team fouls in the second half, the Griffs coaches believed they would foul 3 consecutive times, essentially running the clock out. So they inbounded it to Hadzic who then attempted to pass it just past half court to Corey Brown. Again, my guess being that these would be the two guys Rider wouldn't be smothering and looking to foul instantly. They were right about that part but the pass and attempted catch/advancement of the ball failed miserably and Rider got an easy steal to run out the last second.

Bottom line to the whole thing is that you can't foul the guy taking the 3 with 6 seconds left.

Totally agree with you Griff,any one else getting the inbounds would have gotten fouled.The Griffs had a chance to put the game away prior to Rider getting the ball back for the 3 pointer.

Stop whining about the refs! Oldest and worst excuse in the books.

Good teams don’t leave the game in the hands of the referees; end of story.

Anyone who has any ounce of faith in the direction of this program needs to stop immediately. This coaching staff has ruined more players and teams than anyone ever. In case you need a reminder:

- Sitting Crump, Phil, and Kash in the MAAC tournament to “prove a point”
- Chasing Kash out of town
- Not being able to figure out how to deal with POY and chasing him out of town (Reese)
- Chasing ROY of the year out of town (Molson)
- Blowing the MAAC tournament 2 years in a row when you have both games in hand to move on
- No relationship with Canisius staff, donors, fans, students, etc.
- Hanging fake banners because they’re so desperate for approval

...and on and on

Not sure that anything will change in the near future.

I agree with everything except the banners. They show we have a tradition. Used to love the ones hanging from the scoreboard at the old Aud.

I like the banners and wish we did more to promote our tradition. Go Griffs!

When a team plays 20 minutes of basketball and is charged with only 3 fouls, it's OK to bitch about the refs.
