I just look at this way: we have one of the best coaches to ever roam the college sidelines. Period. He has over 1000 wins, he's done it all and seen it all. He pays attention to college, NBA, and International ball and so while he is old, he is up on the state of the art.Yep, people talk on here like Boeheim has an answer and plan to address the problems. What evidence is there for that over the past half decade? The rest is wishful thinking.
So I have zero explanation of why he has absolutely no offense. This offense requires an individual heroic effort for every single basket. We don't have the players for that. Duke might. UK might. One or two other schools might, but we don't. JB has to see this. If I can see it, he sees it. He also must know that the shooting percentage of a guy trying to create a 3 point shot flat-footed from a dribble closely guarded is about 10% and the same guy could probably hit 40-60% when an offense creates a squared up clean shot for him off a pass. He MUST know all this right??
Our players aren't good enough? Hell no that is not it. They are not good enough for what he gives them to work, but they are plenty good enough to run a simplistic basic offense that could at least generate, say 10 - 12 quality shots per game. Hilariously, that would a massive improvement, 10 - 12 quality shots.
I'm mind blown with disappointment to know we're looking at yet another season like this.
