I continue to wonder to this day what would have been if Mo doesn't pick up those two silly and unnecessary fouls against Nova. We're up 19-9 and cruising at the 13:59 mark and then Mo goes out and it's allNova from then on. Could have been a special season and something many of us have been looking forward to since the Baylor defeat.
Alas, the sweet 16 wait continues.
I continue to wonder what would have happened if Coach Mac didn't unnecessarily put Mo back into the Xavier game, seriously hobbling, to where he blew out his knee a few minutes later. Why was he in the game? That decision was the first domino in a series of events that ruined arguably our best season (potential). I know you can't coddle these guys, and hindsight is always 20/20, but I hated the decision then and I hate it just as much today.
Mac has said a few times that Mo went in and out on his own. Maybe Mac should have pulled him back and said no go. But it was Mo that put himself back in.
