Just a couple of observations. First of all, I think this converstaion is a bit of a slap in the face to the Aquinas girls program. People are SO upset that Logan only beat Aquinas by 9? What was the expectation? Do people think that little of Aquinas?
Secondly, Logan has won every game they were "supposed" to win. To have a certain level of expectations placed on them because of some preseason ranking is not fair to their players or coaches. Those rankings are being taken out of context and way too literally in my opinion. Logan has a alot of good players returning as well as experience. That is likely why they were ranked so high.
Last year Bruce coming back to Logan was like the second coming. He was the savior for all involved with the program. Have things changed that much?
They have two parents on their bench, one being Mrs. Mueller, and the other Fred Williams, who is the father of Freshman guard Adaysha Williams. While I am not a proponent of parents coaching, that is coach Bruce's call.
Focus just a couple observations, you ask what was the expectation? Not so much a blow-out but a team game for Logan that will contribute to future success for the team.
Observation, I don't necessarily think this is Bruce bashing as much as it is surprise how the game played and how he handled it and responded.
Observation, mrs. Mueller was brought into the topic because the issue was more directly related to her. Why did you bring Coach Williams name into this?
Observation, you seem to be the only who has said more than a few words that has not found any problem like the rest. What do you think? What is your observation of the game?
I am just saying they won.....it is unfortunate to see such negativity after a win, especially against a city team.
The only reason I brought up coach Williams was to attempt to demonstrate the same thing you stated in your last post. I really don't think that the parent coaches are a problem on this team. I know they both have coaching experience well beyond coaching their daughters teams at Logan. I think Mrs. Mueller coached with coach Bruce many years ago, and coach williams has coached a lot as well.
I was just trying to put some positive into the fact that they won, just like they were "supposed" to. I don't know what "plays" they were running, or who was supposed to shoot or any of that......BUT Michelle was 10-22. That is 45%. Most teams would take that shooting percentage. While watching the game, it did not stand out to me that she was forcing bad shots or being a ball hog. Many of her shots come in transition. Like I said though, I don't know if they were supposed to be doing something else?
I guess my point is this.....I hope they do not let a WIN against Aquinas be a turning point where their season starts to go down the tubes. They have a lot of good players and good kids. Hopefully, they can have a great season
