So his number have went up even with Maymon out helping him out down low. He needs to get better at FT's though, he could be averaging another couple points a game.
Considering Stokes' talent....he is underachieving....

I refer you to the old 3 strikes and you're out rule.
Nowadays, neither football nor men's basketball programs (the high-profile sports) can afford more than 3 seasons of empty seats, the resulting loss of revenue, loss of interest, disgruntled fans, or the attendant embarrassment of falling to the bottom of a conference in which you were once a contender. As the embarrassment spreads, the coach's job security becomes less and less stable.

I agree. You should give a coach at least 3 years (unless they are really bad) to win. Schools can't afford to wait any longer for results.

Good thing Indiana didn't apply that line of thinking with Tom Crean.

Crean came to a program that only had two walk ons returning and was a proven final four coach. Not sure there are similarities.

He is only underachieving because people put their expectations too high on him.

4 stokes/davis
5maymon/yemi/stokes

then moore and landry, chevious is lmu talent should be gone
stokes should do alot better with maymon back and hubss replacing your guys local hero mcbrick should give the VOLS an outstanding 3 point shooter or someone who can drive to the bucket and finish.mcrae having hubbs a freshmen finally pushing him to get better.should make jim better on the other wingdoes or could mcbee make anyone better not on your lif unless it is making opposing plsyers look good as they drive around him or that jog from corner to wing .the vols wont be much more talented but with a star in the making in hubbs starting at the 2 and some at the pg because he can dribble better than anyone on current roster and mcrae gets even better as he plays the three and stokes and maymon inside and golden at pointson moor and yemi coming in for defense vols will be top 3 in SEC nezt seasin and i hope martin can land a couple stars in the next ckass
It's like someone started writing and had a stroke. Instead of calling for help they decided to finish their post. Wow.

I hope so, but doubt it. I wonder what they are going to say next year when we are winning.

For him to improve his game...There are other players that get double teamed and can still score. His effort is what is lacking.
