Calm Down

I agree this has been a disappointing season.

But it's UK at home. You should have been more angry with the Ole Miss loss.

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.

Rock Bottom in the SEC.
Can't get any worse than that.

I vote we fire everyone, pull everyone's schollies, and burn Thompson-Boling to the ground.

What do you mean calm down? I can't get fired up for this team.. I just kind of set there shrugging my shoulders most of the time.. You can see they lack a point guard, also another shooter.. Someone should also remind Stokes that defense is part of the game and he's 275 pounds..

Wish I could share your confidence but what I see is a team that has several players that look as though they can't get out of the gym fast enough. Until CCM can figure out how to motivate or understand what is going on with Stokes and Golden, it's going to be a challenge to win any games. Lets hope he figures it out soon.

You know I was reading a publication before the season that said Tennessee would be a surprise team this year. I still think CM is the right guy here---it's too early IMO to make a judgement call on him. Maymon missing hurts but he's not the only reason this team is struggling. We need a true point guard or point forward on the roster and some shooters.

Tennessee's offense has looked better. Remember how many people compline early on, oh if we score 50 we'll win, offense blows blah blah blah...now we're scoring much better, but still losing. I think Martin is trying to let them play uptempo, but teaching uptempo D on the fly.

I have seen improvements the last 2 games, and although they were losses they could've easily been wins (I actually felt we outplayed both teams). If golden gets out of this funk this team can make a run, there's a lot of beatable teams in the SEC, heck UK just showed they're vulnerable.

As I do with any sport, I'll wait for the end of the season to make a judgment call. I still think this team ends up at atleast 17 wins.

Think CCM is much better than Dooley, however, not impressed with how his teams, like Dooley's , seem to melt in the final minutes of close games. Probably due to lack of on the court leadership and losing Maymon is the biggest reason for that.

It's the only thing you can do. I guess students should quit halfway through an exam because the first few questions were hard. You have to let it play out. Never know what happens. We did get on a roll last year.

Agree- has to be frustrating for a coach. At some point the players have to lead and make plays. It was clear that Bray was not mentally tough. I actually think McRae and Richardson can be. Golden is not a finisher.
