This is getting ridiculous

Watching the product we are putting on the court. What is the mystery behind Golden and Stokes. Both look as if they couldn't care less about playing for UT. If that's the case , maybe CCM should let them both ride the pine for the entire next game. Richardson bricking the 2 technical FT's was a joke. Do we even practice FT shooting? I've been watching UT BB for over 40 years and have obviously had to watch some sorry teams but this one has to be one of the worst I have seen. They remind me of Dooley's football teams the way the completely melt under pressure. Mentally soft to say the least. For an athletics program that has a $110 million budget, we are embarrassing!

Stokes plays as though he has concrete in his size 22 shoes. He has no explosiveness. Will never play in the NBA. I think he should go out for football. Would be a great D end

You're mind-numbingly repetitive and whiny is what I get out of it.

Has trouble staying out of foul trouble, very lazy feet. If he'd play 30-35 minutes a night he'd put up good numbers, unfortunately he has too many 15-20 minute games that he never got into the flow.

Any fan that contributes to our athletics dept. should be a little p.o'd at the product we have been putting on the court and field the last few years. If your happy, more power to you brother.

We gave UK all they could handle at home. Even with several no calls. Noel lowered his shoulder and ran Yemi over and then dunked it...yeah ok. The refs made sure to get Stokes and Yemi out of the game.

Not very athletic and not explosive enough to be a big time player.
