This is the dumbest thread I have seen in quite some time. The man is 19 years old... We are without Maymon which leading to him getting double teamed 75% of the time. Please don't watch anymore basketball this season and find new team to cheer for. We don't want you as a fan

Something is amiss.
Ok you're right. He's a bust lets pack it up and give up on him. He's played a total of 23 games in college basketball. Not even a full season. He's had one offseason and didn't come into Tennessee known as a prolific scorer. Can you just wait and see how it plays out. If UT wins tonight do you even bring this up?

4) The guards don't get him the ball when he's open.

5) When he gets the ball, he's doubled team and has to pass it, expect his teammates stand around like zombies.

6) He has to be the best rebounder on the team, even though he gets pushed around as much as anyone.

Just stop it.
I don't always agree with you, but, you do make some valid points and when you do I ditto them as you know.
I think it's time to re evaluate where we are as a program. despite differences we are all on the same team. Are we not?

Remember when this team was barely .500 in the non-conference, then they rallied to go 10-6 in the conference?

Okay, that was ten months ago.

It's not time to reevaluate the program. The coaching staff needs to reevaluate the offense. The D is great. Rebounding is very good.

I'm not going to panic seven games into a season.

Also, Tennessee has lost to three most likely NCAA Tourney teams. We aren't losing to bad teams here. It just looks bad because of the low score.

"Fans" like the OP already tore down the Football program, no onto Basketball. Mix in a little Cheek and some Hart and we can destroy the Athletic Dept. by the end of the year !!! Go Vols ! and keep starting your trash threads!

You are consistently one of the biggest morons on here. Congrats.

Perfect example of a classless useless post.

Very underrated post.

The bad losses are what hurt us last year, we don't have those so far this year.

Couldn't be a better time for a 6 game home stand, good time to fix the O.

I made a decision not to watch any of the last three games.
What is happening to Stokes is a travesty. This guy showed, playing when he was really a high school senior, that he was the real deal.
Stokes isn't a bust, he is simply regressing under the offensive ineptitude of this regime. CCM doesn't coach offense. He coaches defense. I've heard several interviews where he is specifically asked about offense and he always changes the subject.
There are many coaches (Kevin Oneil is one)who don't teach the fundementals or the execution of a particular system.
-Calipari has a very simple dribble drive. But everyone is on the same page. Look at your high ball screen offenses.
Phil Jackson knew and completely understood and was able to teach the triangle offense. Many offenses work, but you have to understand and be able to teach it.
As I've said before, trod and plod basketball.
If CCM is going to succeed it will surprise me. I see nothing in his resume to indicate that he is anything more than an average mid-major coach. UT will be back in the coaching market within three years. Meanwhile, be prepared for some unwatchable slop.
