Anthony Marshall would disagree: "We're not going out to sightsee or take a little vacation," senior guard Anthony Marshall said. "Our goal is to win ballgames."
Let's get real, this isn't the outcome most wanted to see. You want to see your team's elite talent produce elite results on the court. These players are too good for that patronizing bullsh*t you and djv are spewing and I'm sure they wouldn't appreciate it either. Even the RJ's Matt Youmanns was commenting on how this team was looking alot like they did in Feb-March earlier this year.
Pump Carleton all you want, UNLV still played bad.
I do want to see my team produce elite results on the court, IN MARCH, when it counts.
What you don't seem to get is that Rice is looking at these games just to get a little experience for the new players on the roster and the 10 extra days of practice time. The results don't matter. Carleton returned 4 5th year starters, scouted us, and were at home. We went in without scouting at all and just played. And still won. And don't forget this is a team that has won 34 games in a row. We've only had 10 practices.
Fans like you bother me. It's an exhibition and the first one at that and you expect perfection. I have zero problem with criticism when it is warranted but this is silly. You haven't even seen a tape of the game, or know ANYTHING about the opponent. Stop acting like this is the NCAA tournament or even a regular season game. You cant expect elite performances in August.
