No love for the Hoops program? One would think this is an optimal time to go for a change with the transition to a new President, positive energy coming from the football program?
What is the deal here? Do they not care about hoops or having they given new resources to Coach Morris that will allow him to turn the program in a more positive, competitive with their peers, direction?
He's a Hawaii lifer, only time he really left before coaching at Occidental was to play at Utah. Coached his son in basketball at Punahou HS in Honolulu last season. Coached St. Louis HS in 2 different stints (coaching Mariota and Tua Tagavailoa) and coached Mililani HS as well.
I really hope for the best for you guys however I also hope he gets a chance before he gets
hanged, drawn and quartered. This is not the same football world of 10 years back and his
recent record leaves a little to be desired. I would like to see the games a little more competitive
as long as MD still wins. Best of luck, have patience.
Honest question here: what does "playing hard" mean in this context? Is a hoop team like Servite, clearly outmatched talent-wise, "playing hard" because they are scrapping for loose balls and playing scrappy defense while getting blown out? I think playing hard has to eventually involve having some success right?TahoeCoachRCS wrote:QR_BBPOST I have seen his teams play and they play hard, but Servite teams have always played harder than most.
Is a more talented team NOT playing hard simply because it doesnt look difficult for them to win? What if the more talented team is winning BECAUSE they are playing hard, smart, and efficient, but it doesnt LOOK like they are TRYING hard because they are playing an inferior team? What would they have to do to get credit for playing hard? Win by 100 instead of 20? If they did that, wouldnt that be called terrible sportsmanship?
I just wonder, because I only seem to hear that bad hoop teams play hard, and that good hoop teams are often "coasting" on talent. That's not being said here, but I think people that do that are being lazy in their analysis.
