    Default something wrong in Tucson

    Following up a putrid performance on the road against Colorado, Arizona opened the game trailing Oregon St. 12-2 in the first 5 minutes. Still trailing 22-18 approaching halftime. This is a heartless, gutless group of Wildcats this year. Something is seriously wrong with this team. I was hoping they put it behind them after the Bahamas tournament, but it doesn't appear they have.

    All those 5 Star players ? Point guard stinks and Miller loves him.

    Not many options. Fr. Barcello isn't ready to take the reigns. Play Trier or Alkins out of position?

    As a casual observer - do you think Sean Miller is somehow TOO intense or loud/energetic for the job? Obviously there are have been good and successful coaches of all stripes, but I wonder if he scares his players.

    I thought Barcello was the 2d coming of Damon? Local kid.

    Some Arizona fans think he micromanages too much. Needs to loosen up and let the players play. That and figure out how to attack a freaking zone defense already. Still clueless, has been the entire time he's been at UA.

    I wasn't aware of that kind of expectations for him. He looked decent early in the season but has disappeared lately.

    Wasn't there a quote from Miller last week where he said he just couldn't get this team to play for him ?

    I think he's a good, not great coach. You can find stuff to nitpick about him. He's definitely stubborn. But this year is something different. They have the talent, but it's just not coming together.
