I just don't see the guard play, defense, shooting, inside play that would give anyone optimism.

So, would it be good for the aforementioned players to return? or would you rather see freshmen players like Enoch, Nickelberry, and Johnson develop and blend with returning players like Clergeot, Randall, Rivers, etc...


We need a culture change. We need energy, skill and big time playmakers. I'm just unsure it could happen with certain players returning. What do yall think?

Hard to get energetic when your coach is sitting there thinking about the next tee off.

^^THIS^^Hey now don't use my material LOL !

So we should replace him with someone who plays even more?

...or at least someone who appears to give a damn.

Tubby needs to take a page out of what Josh did at GT. Get himself a good assistant coach who will be like a defensive/offensive coordinator. What I saw on both ends of the court was archaic. Our style of play was unlike any teams I have seen play this year. It may have worked at the beginning of the season, but it was very much fools gold for the coaches and players.

Tubbah has HIS guys and that's who we're getting for assistant coaches.

period.

The system isn't the problem. You can have the best system in the world and still suck if your players are below average.

Tubby needs to recruit, recruit, recruit; and then he's done, recruit some more. It would help if he could lock up a local kid or two to get some enthusiasm back.

Tubby has never had a job like this, where the general formula is to recruit your backyard. There is enough talent in the city to field a pretty damn good team, but you can't let kids like the Douglas kid from CBHS get away.

We need everything.

A Point guard who can take it to the hole, who can hit the open man, hit a consistent jump shot and run the offense.

A two guard who can shoot and take it to the hole.

A big ugly at center/PF

Start there and see what we can do.

I'm going to expect more depth, more front court help, a bit more comfort from veteran players and more consistency. I'd expect a little more 3 point production as well.
Realistically, I'd like to see 22-24 wins.

So we want a youngish recruiter with energy. Doesn't like golf. Not afraid to turn his staff over. Gives an appearance of someone who really cares.

I know a guy...
