    I agree with previous threads about Green's strength seems to have been nearly zapped....as you can visually see he has lost weight with an attempt to be more of a perimeter player. It hasn't worked out.....

    In the game when Mitchell knew he had taken a horrible shot and was getting ready to come out. He initially appeared to "experience" a slight hammy pain, and then decided to dive for a ball, and took a stage fall.....

    It's things like that, that still need to be overcome. This team is quickly becoming Releford and Steele's team.... and that's fine with me heading into the last 1/3 of the season.

    Thank god for Steele. I don't where we'd be without him...

    But I am not ready to buy in yet - lots of the same issues still show. Bama also gave up a lot of open 3s again. Our D is just not what it was last year.


    The youth of Arkansas on the road showed at the end, and had they had Powell there is a very good chance we don't get the win.

    Lotsa work to do, but winning again can be a great motivator
    This pretty much sums up my view as well. Consistancy will obviously be the key.

    Agree. He's the only one playing like a veteran.

    We have some things we need to work on, but compared to the USC game, it was like night and day. We played with much more energy and hustle. At times we took poor shots, but some of those were caused by the Arky D combined with the shot clock. A lot of our TO's were carelessness with the ball. Jacobs can be a force inside, Releford can make plays at any time, and thank goodness for Steele. Overall, it was a step in the right direction...albeit...a small one. Winning helps a lot...now we've gotta keep improving. RTR!!!

    I should have included Releford who ran his legs off today and was gassed at the end.

    Agree, he played a great game and his position is the one position where Bama doesn't have a lot of depth or help behind him. He was gassed indeed.

    Hope Lacey can get to feeling better.

    I'll you what - those freshman have some fire in their bellies. Hankerson and Cooper looked ready to burst as the clock wound down.
