Come on, folks.  Just read Mike Hall's note.  It's the same thing I've been saying to myself for a few years.  These guys are terrific guys, but there isn't enough fire in the belly.  KL is a beast with a high hoops IQ, but he's a passing center best fit for Euro ball.  He's not a smash-mouth C.  I'm a big fan of Joe Mac and Pato, and they've won some tough games for us, but there just isn't enough FIRE on this team of seniors.  Maybe a big part of it is the bench isn't deep enough - these guys can't carry it all themselves and they're tired after four years.  But ML coaches a good game.  I don't like things he publicly says about the guys in the press (and I never have), and I assume he is a pain in the ass as a coach in the locker room, but as a game coach I have no issues with him.  I even like the recruiting he has coming in next year. I just think somewhere along the way we lost our "nasty" and we need to get it back.
