so sorry frankie, but it seens like those "excuses" weren't excuses at all, but actually legitimate explanations.
no, they were excuses. the only thing that has changed is that our boy is playing better. starting to play like he's supposed to.
the coach is the still the same. rielly's age hasn't changed. his teammates haven't changed. his environment hasn't changed.
and it sounds like the group as a whole didn't play any better in this game. that was another excuses being thrown out there. rielly wasn't playing well, but it was ok, because the rest weren't playing well either.
all just foolish excuses. rielly proved it today. he deserves all the credit for that.
