Mark Few "We have to do everything better" (http://www.krem.com/video/raw/Raw-Mark-Few--115617494.html)

Jim Meehan (http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2011/feb/08/loyola-marymount-looks-turn-around-disappointing-s/):
Loyola Marymount looks to turn around disappointing season
...
Good has a handful of excuses at his disposal, but he won’t go there. His team endured an unusually long injury list last season, but still won 18 games and LMU played in the postseason (College Insider.com tournament) for the first time in 20 years. His current squad has been stung by injuries and close losses. Six conference losses have been by one (in double overtime), two, one, seven, three and nine points.

“I do think we’re improving, but we went into the year with no intention of playing our freshmen other than minimal time as backups,” Good said. “We’re starting three freshmen, but that’s where we are. It bodes well for the future, but my future is the next game.”

....
LMU trailed WCC- leading Saint Mary’s 70-66 in Moraga, Calif., last Saturday before falling 79-70. The Lions played without leading scorer Drew Viney (migraines). Guard Jarred DuBois, who was third on the team in scoring last season (12.3 points), is out for the season (foot surgery). Ashley Hamilton, Edgar Garibay, Ayodeji Egbeyemi and Godwin Okonji also have missed games.

“Drew didn’t have any problems last year, but he’s had them off and on this season,” Good said. “We tried to give him different medicine but he lost his energy, he’s just tired and anemic.”
...
“Our attitude has been excellent,” he said. “We try to never back down. It’s inexcusable. I don’t look at (Thursday’s) game as David vs. Goliath, it might be Fred vs. King Kong or something, but you don’t have a chance if you play with fear.”

From an earlier Meehan lead-in (http://www.spokesman.com/blogs/sportslink/2011/feb/08/lmus-good-hoping-better-finish/) to the preview of the LMU game,
Good has suffered through two injury plagued seasons and his biggest concern at present is junior forward Drew Viney, who missed Saturday's loss to Saint Mary's with a migraine. Good was in good spirits, near the end of the interview offering, “I'm really looking forward to seeing (Gonzaga coach) Mark (Few), I really like Mark. I'm not looking forward to seeing Sacre and Harris and Gray. If you talk to him, would you mention that I would rather not see his studs.”

the Few interviews are telling. A puzzle. trying to fit he pieces together. Frustration. ends with "that's the kind of team we have this year . . . ."

Some tough questions for Meech there. You've got to love his fighting spirit.

Another interesting comment by Coach - noteworthy for who it omits mentioning among the dominant players,
"When you don't have real dominant players, other than Rob and Steve, then we've got to move the pieces around a little bit and see if we can tip the scales in our favor, depending on what the other team is doing or who's playing or how our guys are playing at that particular time."

Some truths are self-evident.
