Too much subbing, no set rotation. You just have to let them play through their mistakes. There's no way Pe should have the most minutes at the point, he gives us nothing on offense or defense. All that subbing and mixing and matching and we still lose by 10 to a turd team.
We should limit Turge to 9 scholarships and bring back competitive cheer with the money saved.
I hate Turge
Bottom line is that the rest of this season is shot and Turgeon isnt going anywhere so we get to see what he does (or doesnt do) next year. I'm done wasting brain power, time, and energy thinking about this basketball program.

This season is definitely on Turge. The big questions at this point are in game coaching and player development.
For the few on this thread that keep pointing at youth please check out BC's roster. We got beat down by a team that started three sophs and two freshmen. Thier 7ft soph center played only five minutes and was replaced by all-ACC Odio who is a soph. We got torched by freshman frenchy guard. They have a six man rotation of first and second year players and people are still using our "youth" as an excuse for shitty play.
If you read the comments after the Dook game the players said that after UVA Turge worked them very hard in practice. The hardest they've worked since pre-season. That obviously worked for a tired Dook team but backfired on us when they had to play again two days later and had the emotional let down.
Funny thing is after the UVA game Turge fired his captains and named himself captain. So the coach and "team captain" couldn't motivate the team. Maybe he'll suspend himself for a game and let Spin coach the Clemson game.
That "frenchy" guard is the best freshman in the ACC. But, yeah, we can't argue youth when we get beat by a team that's even younger.
NOBODY is saying he should be fired! What most are saying is that he's done a crappy job of game prep and in game coaching. Logic dictates that if those things, and the record, don't improve over time, then the result...down the road..will be that he gets replaced with someone better.
Yeah, that whole mafia badge thing was kind of a bust. Whose idea was it?
