Sad state of a program for Georgetown. Besides having 1 breakout player. Which every team that doesn't have an all conference player back has to have. They have nothing. No freshman, no transfers. Either top or underrated. Picked last. We need to learn how to play in D.C. because you can't lose there.

I've heard players in the past say that the toughest road environments to play in are the ones where no one shows up. See: Evansville and Terre Haute.

We haven't played well at Georgetown because they are the antithesis of Creighton basketball. We have trouble matching their style. We'll see how it is now that they don't have some of the dudes they've had in years past.

And Rothstein is my least favorite part of college basketball.

I think that might be the definition of "under the radar?"

Don't share his love of the cupcakes and the number of cupcakes at home. That is a lot of bad games to sit through. I do understand the logic of wanting the newcomers to get experience. The remaining game is going to be scheduled for next year, so that probably will be another bad game at home!

If we think back to last season and the failure to develop young players until forced to do so by injury, I think Mac's plan maybe a sign of progress. Next year the home schedule looks to be better.

It would be hard not to have a better home schedule in 2018-2019 unless we scheduled Creighton Prep, Millard West, Omaha Central and Omaha Burke.
Also, this isn't YMCA ball where everyone gets a chance to play. You have to earn your playing time, it isn't just given to you. The best players deserve to get most of the minutes and that is how it should be.

... only if he actually DOES play guys meaningful minutes in those games and gives them a chance to develop. The schedule last year gave him all kinds of opportunities to do so, but he didn't do it. This one gives opportunities again, but he has to actually follow through with playing the guys to give them a chance for it to matter.

A 12 man rotation = no 4 star guys will come to Creighton. Duke uses a 6 or 7 man rotation with 5 or 6 guys on the bench and it seems to work just fine. I hope Mac never changes the way he uses his players.
