What do we do well?? What to expect next year.....
Watching other teams play conf tourneys, it's obvious to me that we could not impose anything that well could do well on the opposition this year. My question is this.....If we have starter players returning like Markel, K.J. and Jeremiah, what can we expect and should we expect anything different or better?

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?

We simply need more depth to play at the defensive intensity and offensive pace that we want. Also, there are holes on the roster in the post and on the perimeter that we need to address.

If DL leaves then next year's team will have needs at every position. PG, SG, PF, SF, and C. Guard play, shooting, rebounding, defense, you name it, the team will need it. Tubby can pretty much guarantee significant playing time to any recruit with a pulse.

If Markel wants to even sniff the NCAA tournament he'll need to graduate and transfer.

We are good at giving up if you go by the last two games.

Based on current roster (sans Dedric) and Tubby's difficulties with motivating players, we will be fortunate to match the 1999-2000 season record. The solution includes better players and Tubby reevaluating and improving his player relationship methodology.

^^^THIS^^^ + our coach can just sit there as well as anyone---and no team out there has players that when down 30 can laugh like ours can.

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

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

No, but we need someone who at least looks like he is focused, and attentive during the games.
