I'm just going to let my last season play out on autopilot. I'll set the depth chart, and a basic offensive and defensive plan, but I'm finished stressing about this game. Game planned like heck for that game, did everything I possibly could, and STILL lost. If I can't manage to get to the tourney with players like Martz and Morgan, then I'm just not a very good coach.

This is the game that finally discouraged me enough to really quit:

If I couldn't get over the hump for my second NT appearance at Campbell with this team, then I might as well give up, because it's just not happening.

Ok, bye...

Maybe you should schedule better

A 1 point loss to a team that has some pretty good players, it looks like an upset but nothing to quit about.

I agree about scheduling better... you faced three 200+ RPI teams and two 300+ rpi teams in a 1 bid conference.

No matter what you do there is always the luck of the roll.  The game would be pretty boring if who should win always wins.

Dude what are u griping about...a 1 point loss in OT to a team with an equal record...please.

Sorry you are finding the game so frustrating. May I ask what your reasoning behind your starting lineup is? I'm not being a d***, I'm just curious. When I see a curious lineup I always try to ask the coach what they were thinking. EX: Martz at sf....Rothman at C. 

Wait 24 hours and you'll be fine.

Dude - you have only a small talent advantage here, and they were playing at home which evens things out. Plus, they just shot free throws extremely well this game. In real life, this kind of thing happens. I wouldn't want to play a game where the results are always a linear response to the data that describes our team - that would be no fun.

That lineup was a one-off thing. His best player is his C, who is only 6'6. My best defender is Rothman, who is 6'5. So I started Rothman at C. I slid Padillo (normal starting C) to PF, and Martz (normal starting PF) to SF, where he has a guy that I felt Martz could play well against.

The heights of the players means nothing; it's all in the ratings.

OK. Something that can help here......Height does not matter in the game at all. It has absolutely no effect on the game, so you shouldn't gameplan around it.

That wasn't the reason I did it. The reason I did it is that he's easily my best defender, and seemed like my best chance at getting ORU's C off his game. His PG, despite the scoring average, is not very good, and didn't worry me much. I switched Morgan (my best G) to PG, to get that matchup, and loaded him up on the distro. For some reason, he didn't go nuts like I felt like he should have. That PG is really bad, both athletically and on DEF. I have no idea why Morgan didn't just eat him alive.

1. Morgan did have a good game.   He took 25% of your teams shots and shot 50% (55% from inside the ARC).  What were you expecting?  The A in IQ was going to limit his fouls.  

2. The SF on the Center experiment really hurt you.   Your SF didn't play good defense  and you got killed on the boards.   I've tried doing things like that in the past as well and it rarely works.   I suspect the the SB rating is more important than you (and I) think it is for interior defense.  If I had to guess the interior defensive score is something like (DEF*2 + ATH+ SB) with IQ thrown in there somehow.   Martz is the better interior defender in my opinion, by a significant margin.
