I turned on LIU at 63-60 and it fell apart from there.

Anyone who can watch these games close enough to analyze them. Kudos. It’s impossible to watch for more than a few minutes at a time.
Couldn't agree more. This season has been unwatchable. I have probably tuned in for a total of 30 minutes this season.

Every time I try to get into it, I'm frustrated and bored out if my mind.

Whatever improvement this team makes this season it won't be enough. The best case scenario is NEXT YEAR the team can go 8-10 in NEC play.

Regardless the writing is in the wall - if DM doesn't step down after this season, there is nothing he can do to get a new contract. We probably can't afford to buy him out of his final year, but he has burned this program to the ground. He could win the NEC Tournament next year and he still won't be on the bench for 2021-22.

I can't watch this abortion anymore. What an effing embarrassment.

I’m a proud graduate 1978 and 1985. I love CCSC/CCSU as it helped me attain a successful career I thought impossible when I was in high school.

I’m 64 now, retired, traveling the world and living most of the year on the shore of the Gulf of Mexico in western Florida.

I chose to give back to CCSU by recently establishing a scholarship program with the CCSU Foundation for underprivileged students to embark on a career of Urban and Regional Planning which was my field of study.

CCSU is my university and it will ALWAYS be special to me. I refuse to have a loosing basketball team define my school. But unfortunately, that’s what most people base their perception on when it comes to institutions of higher education.

I will always love college basketball as well and I will never lose faith in CCSU as an institution. I’m just hoping, as we all are, that in the near future, we won’t be embarrassed by our men’s and women’s basketball teams during the local sports reports.

Well said sky.

DM has taken this team to the bottom. Howie started at the bottom, took us as high as we’ll probably ever go and back again but DM found a way to dig a hole under the bottom. I know he’s trying, I know he feels bad but it’s simply bad basketball. Fundamentals completely lacking. We’ve said it before, it’s a street ball game and not a very good one. That’s two games this week that we’re winnable and yet we stand at 0 wins. The girls are even worse. Watch a damn UConn women’s game and steal some plays for god sakes. They have a very talented center , feed her till they can stop her then kick it out. The big girl on the other team had one foul at the end of the game. How is that possible? How are they not driving the basketball at her to get her in foul trouble to better utilize the big you have? I don’t get it. It’s not rocket science, it’s 8th grade fundamentals that we aren’t doing!

Unwatchable is an understatement. If they play like they did this week, it will be impossible to get a win and if he doesn’t he must stand down. I’m sorry but but this is ridiculous. How are they going to get donations to fill that new seating area? Enough already he has 35 wins in 4 years. Experiment over.

I was sitting with some people and we were having a conversation which had the tone of most of this thread.
A lot of frustration was expressed, myself included.
And as the final seconds wound down a nice lady whom I did not know, was apparently listening in on our conversation, came over to me and said "don't worry things will get better."
I thought she must be a kind person who wanted to console those in pain.

Perhaps Hill. I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt but I’m guessing she knows nothing that gives her reason to say that.

I posted this before but a couple years ago, I had a discussion with a former CCSU employee about this and she said “baby steps”.

I nearly lost it saying we’ve been D-1 for 32 years. We shouldn’t be taking baby steps”.

Anyone check the NEC men's basketball standings lately ? Merrimac, in its first year of D-1 hoops finds themselves all alone in first place atop the mighty NEC after taking down RMU & SFPA this past week ( both on the road no less ). It makes CCSU's 0-7 start seem even worse. Central can't manage to win a game in a conference that is now being dominated by last year's D-2 newcomer from the Northeast 10 Conference.

I’d say that the people who run the university need to donthe obvious thing... but the concept of responsibility doesn’t exist.

What an absolute joke.

There’s no way he stays at this point. I’d almost be willing to bet he initiates it at this point. Never has there been a worse ccsu team. It’s truly unwatchable. That was a depleted shu squad. . 10 more games...

Was thinking on the way home, they should make the remainder of the season free of charge for both programs.
