Suck It, Neil (Conference Preview, Part Deux)

S-T ran an article talking about the positive outlook TCU has for conference play, and to concur with THEFINCH, ole Neil just isn't going to get it done for yet another year. Why? Because we lost to SMU and Rice, that's why. It's atrocious to think that the Big 12 could extend us an invite with this bullshit we put out year in and year out.

The biggest issue? Henry Salter is the best player on our team. By far. Anyone who has seen a game this year can attest to this. Unfortunately, Neil, who will be abbreviated to GQ for brevity's sake, has this ludicrous idea that our team has "depth" so he rotates him in and out far more consistently than he should and let's Brent FUGGIN Hackett launch 3s all game. He was something like 3 for 55 over a three game stretch. That's a hyperbole... but not much of one. The staff also seems to feel that Langford is some sort of extraordinary talent, but, I've got news: Dudes don't transfer from a middle of the road Pac 10 team to TCU because they're good. I think Neil is delusional and thinks he's still in Kansas and it's actually Kevin's brother Keith. It's the only explanation. Mike Scott is pretty good as well, but he's 5'4'' if he wore high heels, and probably weighs a cool 130. Luke Tauscher needs to stop being a lady part. I don't think there's anyone else on the team.

TCU Basketball MWC Play Preview

TCU managed to finish non-conference play with a record of 8-5, but don't be fooled, their wins were all against cupcakes. Specifically: Angelo State, Rice, Arkansas Pine-Bluff, Grambling State, Texas Southern, Texas-Arlington, Prairieview A&M, and Jackson State. Very impressive.

TCU opens up conference play tomorrow at San Diego State, and I look for them to finish at least second to last, which will prove Neil Dougherty's uncanny ability to improve a basketball program. (They finished tied for last in the 2006-2007 season)

I also look for a Frog-less Mountain West All-Conference team, because Neil's strategy is to play way too many guys and pull players when they are heating up. i.e. playing Keion Mithcem a total of 11 minutes against Texas after hitting 3 of 3 from beyond the arc.

The only thing Neil Dougherty has won during his tenure was the 2004 Nation's Best Dressed Coach Award. Upon receiving the award Neil commented, “I don’t like wrinkles. I will re-iron a shirt even after I get it back from the cleaners. It’s just one of those weird things that I can’t stand.”

Hey Neil, why don't you take some of that obsessive compulsive energy and start ironing out the wrinkles in your team. And while you're at it, learn how to recruit from the large talent poole that is the DFW Metro-Plex. If we don't finish at least middle of the pack this year in the conference, I don't see how we could keep this guy around.
