Unfortunately people want instant gratification these days. People's reactions are so extreme these days after one or two losses. Internet helps with that

I don't blame people for being mad. Lot of question marks right now, and my biggest one is why our possible all sec guard and big man look like they forgot how to play and don't seem to be into any game.

I would love the honest answer to this question, unfortunately don't know if we will ever get it.

they don't look instinctive and they look robotic.

I know what that meant back in the day most of the time. Overcoaching, overthinking and not playing ball. Trae is mental right now. If he can heave half court shots and long 3's, he's physically healthy enough with his shoulder. Problem is, his game looks exactly like last year, but less explosive and less energy. He didn't improve in ballhandling, passing, shooting or finishing.
That's frustrating
I'd like to see yemi, reese, moore, rich, and mcrae play together a lot, but I'm sure we won't. CM's sub patterns haven't made a lot of sense quite often

I have never thought Golden was all SEC. He is not mentally tough and so slow. He had some good games last year, but he had to score for us to win. Maymon is just a huge loss for Stokes, but he is the biggest question. He actually showed some aggression tonight but is a little short to go up against someone like Noel.

I may be drunk on a Tuesday, but this made me laugh, and I'm as realistic as a posiVol comes.

Not sure what the nation expects...the guy has some top talent coming in but it's thin and oddly matched this year. We'll be good before too long ..was watching #2 Indiana and thinking Creen and that team was about where we are now 2-3 years ago...things seemed to work out once he got some players..relax

Look, I don't know what's going to happen this year. It's not looking bright. But let's not forget this time last year, UT was 1-3 in the SEC, and started out 2-5. They finished 10-6. UT has improved the last two games.

The offense has gotten better. The D has shown (at times) excellence, but has been inconsistent.

McRae has improved. Reese has provided some depth, Richardson continues to be the glue, and Yemi played great tonight.

What I'm saying is this: Let's all wait till the season ends before we start throwing everyone under the bus. If you expected a win tonight, I can't help you.

UT gets 3 home games out of the next four. Get those three, and build some momentum/consistently, hopefully UT can make a run like last year.
We suck in BB , we suck in FB. There is nothing to interest casual fans in the 2 big money-maker sports. The Vol ship is sinking at an accelerating clip. Martin needs to be replaced.

Ten of the players were brought in by Martin.

I've watched enough Houston coached games and Martin coached games to distinguish Martin coaches nothing like Houston. Houston never got another head coaching job for a reason after being fired from UT.

We need some decent PG play and we will be fine. Golden needs to break out of the funk he has been stuck in.

Agree. Seems like things would be better if he were playing like his usual self.
