It’s frustrating to me that Reed never takes responsibility in these situations. He always bemoans the poor decision making. And that the players didn’t bring toughness and energy. He never says “I didn’t have my guys prepared against the BU pressure for the second straight game and that’s on me.”
Also, toughness is a skill. If he hasn’t recruited or cultivated it on the roster, that’s on him as much as (or more than) the players. This team has zero identity and hasn’t for years.
