    @Stephen_Bailey1: Boeheim said Roberson gives the team nothing: "He doesn't know the defense. He doesn't know the offense. He can't help us right now."

    Are you kidding me, Jim? What a dick thing to say.

    Is it true? Maybe. But don't freaking get THIS negative on a freshman out there giving it his all.

    If he doesn't know what's happening in March he might not be giving it his all. :noidea:

    Isn't it LITERALLY Jim's job to make sure he knows the offense and defense? Let's not put all the blame on a kid out there working his tail off when he does actually get minutes.

    Also the point is, I hate the fact he said this. Call him into the office and have a chat. Don't go on your press conference after his first start and basically say he sucks to the media.

    JB knows his work ethic better than either one of us.

    Not many others, excluding Fair/Ennis, are helping us now either.

    A real player's coach. It's not due to lack of effort. A little more coaching the kid up and a few less snappy retorts seems to be the way to go here.

    Wow, that really pisses me off. Baye gets all the time in the world and while he knows the offense it doesn't mean he actually helps the offense at all. I thought Roberson looked good on D, except when he switched off the guy underneath to let Rak slide in and watch the bucket. That was bad, but I'm guessing Rak said to move. Should have doubled instead.

    especially when Boeheim's answer to trying to speed the game up was pressing, but sticking in the 2-3...

    so what we did was pressure them into speeding the ball up for 5 seconds to easily beat our press - then sit in the 2-3 for 25 seconds, then watch them score with 3 on the shot clock. over and over and over to start the 2nd half.

    yeah... we created a to and a 2 missed shots towards the end of the game... but we had ample opportunities to at least mix up the defense. instead we let them whittle the clock down until it was an all or nothing chance for us.

    gotta put this 1 on boeheim. I love the zone and i love boeheim. but tech owned us (after uva owned us). Which makes 2 games in a row that we had better players at pg, sg, sf, pf, and c - yet we sat in a zone and let the opposition totally control tempo.

    i only hope JB puts some pride aside if needed in the tournament.

    Again, nothing to do with work ethic. Berate the kid in private. Don't publicly admonish him like this. It's low class, if you ask me.

    That's a valid point.

    Pretty sure it's Jim's job to teach him...

    Do any of the players know the "offense"?

    I don't care what the story is on or off the court.

    You never, ever throw your player or teammate under the bus.

    That's disappointing to hear if true. We don't need that right now.

    Perhaps he has tried that already. Now he is sending a message in a different manner. Don't think he would go that far without reason. At least I hope he wouldn't.

    The better question is, "What offense?"

    If that's really what JB thinks is the problem with the team, it's time to take a long look in the mirror

    A class act would take this upon himself instead of calling out players by name, especially if said player is out there hustling.
