It was obvious the neither Faulds nor Tape guarded Brodeur past the free throw line in the first half. Depite Brodeur killing us from 3, they followed the scouting report and coaches orders - to let him shoot from the outside. To Engles' credit, he made adjustments at halftime and both Faulds and Tape defended Brodeur much better in the 2nd. That loss had more to do with a crappy first half scouting report and the fact that we shot 6/25 (24%) from the behind the 3-point line and, as was often the case, we played terrible perimeter defense.

I thought Smith's 11/23 shooting and 27 points; Faulds' 3/5 shooting, 5 rebounds, block, and steal (17 minutes); and Stefanini's 9 points, 4 rebounds, 2 steals (21 minutes); were three of the bright spots in that tough loss.

Also if you fast-forward to the Penn @ Columbia game, you could tell that the Brodeur adjustment carried over. Faulds played 22 minutes and he and Tape held Brodeur to 7 made baskets and 0 three pointers. Although Brodeur still played well, the game plan and defense on him were respectable.

I agree that Faulds is better when matched up with bigs in the paint, but not to match up Faulds against Gettings at all when he scores 25 and they beat us by one is simply inexcusable.

Mr. Faulds clarified that his recent twitter comments about coaches were general criticism of bad H.S., college and AAU coaches who take advantage of athletes. The comments were absolutely not about Columbia.

So the timing was a mere coincidence.

I appreciated @CoachFaulds' clarification (that he wasn't simply talking about CU's program, but rather all coaches and programs that do those things) - but those examples could absolutely still include CU.

As far as the timing, maybe it wasn't just coincidence. But, I care less about the timing of tweets and more about the fact that many people close to the program have serious concerns about what has been going on for the past two years..... and they aren't typical concerns you hear about during normal transitions.

Also, over the same two year span, I found it interesting that @CoachFaulds' Twitter account does have a long track record of being positive in tone. That guy has tweeted/retweeted more recognition, praise, and props to CU's athletes (from a variety of CU sports) than almost anyone - except our athletic department and program itself. IMHO, the messages speak for themselves and what his intent is. As for some of the others in question, I'm not feeling very reassured.
