40 years in BB --How long does it take for people to stop saying that ---do they say that about the Puke coach

Are you obtuse? or, do you intentionally post ignorant sounding things to get a reaction?

Penny is a first time COLLEGE COACH - of course there is going to be a learning curve , especially since he was never a college assistant.

He has been in the game his ENTIRE life---around 100's of great coaches---been in EVERY BB situation 1000's of times ---boy he must be slow

So in any single situation ---you think Penny says to himself on the sideline ---" gee I can't remember what my old coaches would do right now---gee I forgot---40 years and I still don't know what I am doing---I need more years of a learning curve---should I call a TO--should I press--should I go zone----gee I need more time--40 years is not enough"

PENNY HARDAWAY knows as much about the game of BB and coaching the game of BB as anyone . BB is not hard


Not every former basketball player is a great coach. There are more examples of failed experiments with former star players than success stories. I guess the years of experience playing doesn’t really translate to coaching like you seem to believe.

RE: Coachin; the last thread
When Penny gets the friend or coach thing sorted out (probably after those whom he either coached or raised are gone), we'll have a better idea if he's a good coach. There's a lot more to coaching than knowledge, ultimately can he teach & lead, can he make the right & timely substitutions, can he deal with talented premadonnas, can he recruit the right mix of players, & can he coach them up, etc.

WHY ?

One thing has stood out is that teams that have depended on the one and done type players have been hurt more than the experienced teams...in general terms. There are no absolutes. Very young teams did not have the opportunity for summer and fall development. Very young teams have been exposed more by erratic schedules, long layoffs, no true crowd experiences, lack of stability in overall university support, isolation from normal life, higher occurrences of transfers, add to the list more if you like.

So just us over the past two years (so other teams can come up with what they have gone through) a mostly freshman squad last year did not get to fully develop on pace for a normal year, A really protracted NCAA cloud, loss of our marquee player, a juggled lineup, no normal tournament play, no full strength and conditioning program, multiple injuries, limited summer and fall development camps, slow NCAA response for qualifying key transfers and maybe lingering injuries and recovery (physical and mental) for a couple of players. Few squads have seen all of that coupled with reinventing the asst staff and an inexperienced head coach.

I’ll remain patient, hopeful, optimistic and positive.

What Tigerx3 says is the truth. Playing together as a team requires time spent with each other/getting to know your teammates style of play and vice versa.

We should've seen this young squad make a big jump this season but from not seeing tournament play, not playing pick-up games, not having normal summer work outs and being sick or injured has its toll.

He’s only been a college HC for 3 yrs. if it’s so easy why aren’t you doing it?

I wasn't speaking of MEMPHIS---young squad ? a lot of them have been playing for Penny for years--but again I wasn't talking about MEMPHIS.

I was talking about the entire national workforce using covid as an excuse for failure ----while others in the same exact profession are successful -----it's the everybody gets a trophy society ----excuses excuses .

ECU returned 5 starters 8-7 ----OKC 1 starter 12-5 -- Arkansuck 0 starters 14-5 -----we returned 4.............good point.....I can't see how ECU with all that experience have lost a game----or how Arkansuck with 0 returning starters have even won a game.

I don’t think that’s what that means.

The statement was --(a young team not having time to practice or getting to know your teammates style of play)----however we have some players that have been playing together and for Penny for years. Plus we return 4 starters. Last year we were saying the same thing---that we were so young----saying wait until next year . Plus players improve more from year 1 to year 2 than---plus EVERY school in the country has went through the same thing. Heck with us having players that have been playing for Penny for years ---and returning 4 starters ---COVID should have given us an advantage

Hey ,I am the Penny defender----just tired of outlandish statements and always excuses . Remember I am the guy that defended Penny when people were saying that he didn't or couldn't even install an offense-----AFTER BEING IN BB HIS ENTIRE LIFE---oh yeah the Penny needs more experience crowd ----that he learned NOTHING from the hundreds of coaches he has been around his entire life. People seem to think the game of BB is akin to physics .

We should've seen this young squad make a big jump this season but from not seeing tournament play, not playing pick-up games, not having normal summer work outs and being sick or injured has its toll.

young squad ? a lot of them have been playing for Penny for year's

I don’t think that’s what that means.

The statement was --(a young team not having time to practice or getting to know your teammates style of play)----however we have some players that have been playing together and for Penny for years. Plus we return 4 starters. Last year we were saying the same thing---that we were so young----saying wait until next year . Plus players improve more from year 1 to year 2 than---plus EVERY school in the country has went through the same thing. Heck with us having players that have been playing for Penny for years ---and returning 4 starters ---COVID should have given us an advantage

Hey ,I am the Penny defender----just tired of outlandish statements and always excuses . Remember I am the guy that defended Penny when people were saying that he didn't or couldn't even install an offense-----AFTER BEING IN BB HIS ENTIRE LIFE---oh yeah the Penny needs more experience crowd ----that he learned NOTHING from the hundreds of coaches he has been around his entire life. People seem to think the game of BB is akin to physics .

I only meant that I believe “young squad” refers to the fact that they are still adapting to stiffer and more experienced competition. Not how long they’ve been playing for Penny. With respect to the above, coaching is hard.

I wasn't speaking of MEMPHIS---young squad ? a lot of them have been playing for Penny for years--but again I wasn't talking about MEMPHIS.

I was talking about the entire national workforce using covid as an excuse for failure ----while others in the same exact profession are successful -----it's the everybody gets a trophy society ----excuses excuses .

Some people make things happen---some people watch things happen---other people wonder what the he!! happened

By the way--I guess the virus didn't bother practice time of --Gonzaga Baylor Villanova Houston Michigan etc etc

Yes the more experienced teams have faired much better this year.

ECU returned 5 starters 8-7 ----OKC 1 starter 12-5 -- Arkansuck 0 starters 14-5 -----we returned 4.............good point.....I can't see how ECU with all that experience have lost a game----or how Arkansuck with 0 returning starters have even won a game.

As usual you are just skewing and spewing crap. Yes, technically Arkansas has no returning starters, however, they have a very experienced team... Their starting lineup consists of;
- Connor Vanover (sound familiar) - Redshirt Sophomore (3 years in college)
- Davonte Davis - Freshman
- Moses Moody - Freshman
- Justin Smith - Graduate transfer senior (avg. over 30 minutes a game at Indiana in 3 years)
- Jalen Tate - Graduate transfer senior (Horizon league defensive player of the year and Horizon league conference tournament MVP)

Then their 6th man
- JD Notae - Redshirt Junior (4th year in college)

So, while none started at Arkansas 2 of them were starters for a college team last year and Vanover would have started had he not had to sit out as a transfer... Acting like they are not experienced is laughable.

I've blasted Penny on here, but can admit i was wrong and he's making a believer of me. He's growing as a coach and this team has improved dramatically over the last month. I'm actually looking forward to the games, checking bracketology and the NET rankings for the 1st time in a long time.

RE: Coachin; the last thread
I agree 100% that Penny is clearly improving as a coach. He has proven a willingness to assess his coaching and make necessary changes to improve. He certainly appears to be on the right track.

I am not ready to say that whether he can coach or not should no longer be a discussion. He has yet to even make an NCAA tournament, much less any sort of deep run... He has a few of those to go before questions regarding his coaching will be silenced. But for now he certainly appears on the right track and is clearly improving which is what I was hoping to see.

I am spewing crap--- surely you jest. We return 4 starters and we added 2 starters from other teams that are arguably our two best players. Yeah we have ZERO experience---smh
