Wade could coach decent, he was just the most pathetic recruiter in the history of college basketball. He would sign awesome players such as Norman Marbury who he knew had no chance of ever showing up on campus.

Wade never was a decent coach at X's and O's. Ever. He was Denny Crum's recruiter. That was all he was good for. He got the job because Lamar Alexander wanted the first black head coach to ever coach basketball in the SEC. It was a political hire and we got his son. After Allen left, they won all of 5 games. If you have any coaching acumen at all, you can find a way to coach your team to more than 5 wins.

Its ok guys. Trust the system. We dont want to win in Rupp anyways. Its all part of Cuonzo's plan.


With the way UK's recruiting is this was our best chance to steal a win in Lex for a long while. UK wont be this average (for UK standards) again while Cal is there.

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.
Cuonzo approves this message. But in all honestly, the lack of energy from the team is wearing off on the fans. Apathy is setting in, so people will be calm and disinterested.

This thread would've been much better if it would've been titled:

Calm Down and Drink Beer

Because when it's all said and done, this team makes you want to drink.

What game did you watch tonight? Lack of energy was the last problem for this team. It was the same mistakes with ball handling and turnovers. UT played hard, but not smart. UT didn't play hard or smart in the Ole Miss game.

Two players played hard. I have sympathy for them.

I'd say McRae, Richardson, Yemi, Reese, Moore, Golden and McBee all played hard. McBee and Golden had their typical brain farts.

Hall rarely goes all out and Stokes was taken out of the game pretty much the entire time with foul trouble.

There's no sense in getting bent out of shape. This team isn't going to magically start shooting better overnight. They aren't going to have a true point guard to run the show either. The only correctable thing that needs to be fixed is Stokes' lack of force in the paint. Those are the three huge problems right now.

Bingo. Fix stokes this year, bring in a PG for next year, and hopefully Hubbs improves your teams perimeter shooting.

Could it be possible Stokes is really a 3 star player in a 5 stars body? I haven't seen much from him in an entire year now that justifies him being a 5 star recruit other than his physical appearance. However, it's the old " looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane" based on what. I have seen so far.

Stokes cannot be fixed this year without some other presence down low. The kid just is not ready to take double teams. He is not ready to be a leader of this team. Next year will be totally different. Wait and see!

I agree, but there's things he can work on.

He posted Noel properly ONE time last night, it resulted in an easy layup. He needs to make those proper post ups an quick moves before the double can get there.

Also like to see him look for his 15 foot mid range game a bit more often.
