    Re: OFFICIAL POSTGAME THREAD - Bama v. The Hogs...

    Beating UK was great, especially for us fans, but in reality the season ended for the players that day. They were never the same. With that win we stood at 10-3, finished 7-11.

    This is the first time since the 1999 season that I didn't attend a game.

    I agree baseball is moving in to conference play next week,so the ride will be getting tougher but I think the guys will compete. The girls have a chance to be really special this season.

    Unless there's a 40-point differential in the last game of the season, which should be Ole Miss, Avery gets another year if he wants it, undeserved as that year may be.

    This says it all here. CAJ’s teams are mentally soft and they do not make adjustments at all! I’m beyond done and I apologize to anyone last year that I called crazy for wanting him gone.

    What remains to be seen is how important the basketball program is to those with the financial means to make the change? CAJ’s buyout is a reported $8.5 to $9 million at present but drops to the $6 million range sometime in April.
    So is $6 million enough of a reason to keep someone that is perceived by many as the 12th best coach in the league for another year?

    I really feel bad for these players. Most of them seem like good kids who really want to win but they look absolutely lost a lot of the time. The execution of the fundamental skills of the game are weak. The offensive philosophy is confusing with no structure. On defense they are continually caught out of position or unable to stay with their man. You have to have good players to win but you also have to have someone at the top who can teach and direct them on how to do it. We have a football coach who is one of the greatest examples of how that is done.

    There has to be something more to this whole thing. This has basically been the same uninspired play we have had over the last 10-12 years across the 3 head coaches. Different players but same swoons on the road or late in the season.

    We really have to take inventory of our basketball program because we have tried 3 different approaches and get the same results. 1) Slimeball coach 2) quiet conservative disciplined coach 3) NBA acclaimed HoF player coach = same results. Which I lean toward it being the type players we are recruiting - heavily athletic but weak fundamentally.

    We need to 1) renovate our arena and shrink the venue 2) find a new generation Wimp who is strong fundamentally and stressed discipline, and 3) get 3yr+ players tough enough to play around the rim with a couple dead eye shooters.

    It drops to 6 million on 4/19 but stays there for several years, so I see no point in retaining him past that. From his demeanor on the sideline, I think he's already gone mentally. Whatever he's go going, I hope he goes ahead and takes it. I can't imagine what next year will be like with no true post player...

    It is heartbreaking that we cannot have one of the top teir basketball teams in this conference. It appears to me that we have decent talent, but gosh, what is going on that causes us to play such an unorganized game tonight? I realize we had a couple of key players out with injuries, but that should be no excuse for all the repeated turnovers. Need I mention we might have stood a chance if we could hit even a few free throws. So disappointing to play so sloppy. Something has to change or we will take up permanent seat beside Vandy. I believe the fans of this university deserve a team that can compete for SEC championships. I'm not saying we should always expect to win the SEC, but at least we should be in the hunt.

    I agree that results have been the same but I think in each case those results were driven by different problems. Gottfried’s extra curricular activities had him “checking out” his last few seasons. Grant’s team played very good fundamental defense but had no real definitive offensive scheme and consistently poor shooting. Johnson’s teams have been ones, in my opinion, where you have five players on the court with no team concept. At times they look like a team from a pick up game at the YMCA on a Saturday morning. Look at any five out there at anytime and say “ok who is the alpha dog here? Who is the leader”? Lewis has been the “scorer” but where is the “tough as a $2 steak” guy that provides the glue? There isn’t one.

    But I can’t agree with you more that we need a guy that finds the tough minded, hard working skilled players that aren’t necessarily the ones looking to be on campus eight months and a lottery pick in June.

    If that is the case then Byrne needs get to his short list ready. There isn’t any sense in waiting to pull the trigger next year.
