Actually MSU is ranked #4 right now. Are they likely really that good? Likely, no. They haven't really played an elite team as of yet. But they are definitely top 15. But this was very winnable for us, especially at home.

The Ladyvols have lost a grand total of 34 games in their incredible history in games played at home with over 800 wins. If my math is correct, Holly is already responsible for 8 or 9 of those losses in her short time leading the program. Not good.

Six wins, including over Troy, App State, UNC Wilmington, Kentucky and Vandy? We easily have more talent than all of those teams; we should have won those games. Same with Stanford, and same with Miss. State. Do you think Miss. State is more talented than us? They aren't--they just play better. It is a measure of how far we have fallen that fans feel good about beating Vandy and Troy.

We want a new coach...

...need a new coach, because Warlick doesn't have it. Anybody who hasn't seen that by now should schedule a visit to the optometrist. We've not been to a Final Four in a decade, and we're not going to win anything until we get a real coach. HW tries, of course; she cares; she's just not a good head coach--has been over her head since day one.

Welp... so much for hanging my hopes on Coach Jumper to turn this around.

Those girls had a chance to win. Even with 1:03 left they were within two scores of the #4 team in the country.
In spite of almost having the wind sucked out of them AGAIN in the second.
They responded.
Don't lay that on them.

Yes, this game is definitely not one to spark a stone throwing party. The effort was there; foul trouble to key players is a major dilemma for a team playing on the edge like the LVs; and if their execution had been a little better down the stretch, this game could have had a very different outcome.

Sometimes you win; sometime you lose but every loss does not mean it is the end of the program.

Yes, but this isn't the same Tennessee program that was under Pat Summitt and was a national powerhouse. Thos team has been decimated by injuries and has zero depth, and after an awful start they've made huge strides. Losing a hard fought game at home to the #4 team in the country is nothing to hang your head about. Tennessee was up by one point with three minutes left, doesn't get much more competitive than that. They also won their last six games, including two over ranked teams. Yeah they lost today, but look at how far the team has come since the Baylor disaster. The team is playing much betterbasketball and absolutely has Final Four potential if they continue to improve. There will be more losses and ups and downs, but I'm thrilled with the progress the team has made in a relatively short time frame and think they can still contend for an SEC title and make a deep run in the tournament.

The up and down is key. When you effectively had a seven player rotation (and really when there is a significant drop off after the starting five), the margin of error is very thin. In the game, the LVs showed flashes of brilliance as well as exposing all their weaknesses and bad tendencies but they are doing better on the latter set of problems. They could pull together and have a heckuva a tournament run particularly if Diamond hits her groove.

Nothing is really going to satisfy them until the LVs will all their games by at least 30 points.

Exactly! This team is getting better and people should appreciate that. This season is not over by a long shot. They will continue to improve and work on their "every play" focus. As you aptly pointed out, loosing to the #4 team in the country is nothing to hang ones head over. It is not settling, it is being real.

We had 17 TOs to 7 for MSU. If there is any position Holly should be able to coach, it is guard. How long has it been since we have had a point guard who could effectively run the offense and get the ball to the bigs inside?
