Basketball was way off last night. Vista's better than their record, but not much. We were down 8 at half, then came out in the third quarter to let a Vista player who was scoreless in the first half rack up ten points in very short order. We were down 10 at the next break, and outscored them 25-17 in the fourth, but we were absolutely miserable in the last minute. Down only two, we committed more stupid turnovers (one travel call and a bunch of bad, bad, BAD passes) and started jacking up 3-pointers, some of which were way behind the line, with 40 seconds to play. We just killed ourselves that last minute. Okay, the officiating in the first half was just bad, but you're supposed to get past that.

At the end of the day, I'm still happy. We named a new head football coach, promoting one of our assistants. Gonzalez met with his players right away last night to lay out the ground rules. We will not have the discipline and attitude problems we had last year. Apparently the administration has committed to standing behind him on this, so I'm very hopeful for next year. We've got a lot of good kids coming back, maybe few of them are Div-I college material, but they can play and they have good attitudes. Get the detritus off the field, and they can do some wonderful things next fall. I'm looking forward to it already.

First up on the attitude adjustment plan, the football team was required to stick around for last night's basketball games. They're part of the larger community, and if they want everyone else to support them, they gotta get out and support everyone else. It made for a nice, big crowd last night.
