Post Butler Complaint

Sorry, but I just can't wait for a post game thread. There is one thing about this game that I can't shake.

But first, hats off to Butler. They played a great game and it was an honor to play in such an amazing atmosphere. Definitely one of the best crowds I have ever seen for a regular season game. If I had been told pre-season that the number 13 team in the country would storm the court after beating us during the regular season I'd probably take it, if only to know for sure that the Zags would be highly ranked. Especially impressed with their non-students who didn't just sit in their seats the whole time. Gotta give it up to them. Great program. And Brad Stevens? Awesome guy. Classy as they come. I can't not like this team.

Now for the last play. What is Mark Few thinking calling an inbounds play like that? We had no timeouts which means you have to make sure you get the ball in. You can't worry about anything else. So why in the world is everyone spread out and standing around trying to post up to receive a pass? Obviously you are expecting to get fouled so you want the ball in the hands of Kelly (at least, I guess that was the plan there), but with no timeouts you need to get the ball in bounds.

I just really can't believe that they didn't have something better drawn up for that situation. Seriously, if you stack them up in front of the inbounds passer and have a pick or two set to free up a man I think we close out that game no problem. Instead Few put Stockton in a situation where he had to force a difficult pass into someone being guarded one on one.

If that is in the play book, I say rip it out and tear it to pieces because its crap. The play seemed doomed from the get go. The team has to learn from this and it starts with Mark Few.

Go Zags.
