That was brutal. Unless they go on an unlikely win streak the only path I see to the NCAA tournament is to win the conference tournament - not very likely.

After preseason expectations this season has been a let down for sure.

it's kinda like saying "The Grizz may not make the playoffs this year, but they are the talk of the town"

Not even close

One is trending up

The other had collapsed

the grizz sleep walked last night

i recently added grizz games to the dvr

those cats are young, scrappy, and morant has that "it" that you can't describe, but you know when you see it

Future is extremely bright. We are set for the next decade potentially. The core is so young and uber talented.

I believe so too

Can't wait to watch it unfold

Nothing but excuses, we lost..... and we have been living on borrowed time for most of the season. Lots of talent, lots of inconsistency & unreliability. Maybe we can pull a rabbit out of the hat in the conference tourney.

Eh...Injuries are not excuses...

But I do wholeheartedly agree we have been living on borrowed time for a long while.

This should have been exposed long ago...But people looking at the entire picture kind of saw this on the horizon (I thought we were good enough to make the tourney though)

Below is what propped up our early season.

Ole Miss...They stink
UT...They stink
UAB...They Stink
NC. State...They are average

If any of those teams are good expectations would have be set more reasonably earlier in the season as we would have lost those games. But now it looks like the team is falling apart when they are essentially performing at the same level.

This is UNBELIEVABLE
Inside game took the day off
The Trey Ball was nowhere to be found, we must Bust the Trey Ball and today we had problems
Busting a Deuce.
Foul trouble yep, but usf had the same issue.
In a nut shell our players were spanked by a inferior team
Speaking of spanked, it was such a humiliating loss I'm heading over to west Memphis for a nice
Beat down, hopefully it will pick me up, getting the fiddy dollar special, I need two black eyes tonite
But, I'm passing on the stitches
Hope everybody has a pleasant evening and don't forget to watch the replay

Their top 2 rebounders were 6’6 guys with 16 and 7 respectively. It’s a matter of effort and not size

There is some truth to what you say but.

There is a reason big or tall guys usually get most the rebounds. 6'6 guys wouldn't have gotten nearly as many rebounds if our 6'9 guys played

Regardless we should not lose to a sub .500 team. There are 80 possible total mins between the 4 and 5 and about 60 of those mins were between Precious, Lance and Maurice. We just have to agree to disagree here. Front count injuries are not the primary reason we lost this game.

Probably not...

But without Precious what are we...

Is Baugh better than Brewton...Close
Harris = Harris
Is Alo better than last year...Yes
Is Lance better than Davenport...No
Lester better than Thorton...Yes...But it is close
Maurice better than Parks...No
Boogie better than Martin...Hell No

So should our roster today been able to beat our roster last year even with Precious?

Look at it objectively not through the expectations of the beginning of this season.

Today we had a top 15 recruit essentially benched with fouls.

So the majority of the game we played with two top 50 freshmen, a top 100 freshman, a transfer who couldn't get time at Louisville, and 3 bench players from an NIT team and everyone is shocked.

Yep
