If this team is still playing this way in year 4 of CCM's regime then yes concerns are warranted. But this is his second season and his best player is side lined. Not advocating the ole "wait til next year" but he is getting the best from this team. McCrae is playing solid, Yemi has given some great mins, Richardson is showing improvement and leadership. Stokes, Golden, McBee and Hall need to step it up. The one area I would say CCM needs to improve on is his talent assessment of recruits. Edwards and Cheivous really haven't brought much "yet".

The best from this team? We are tied for last in the SEC with also one of the worst overall records in the SEC with our "big" win at home versus Wichita State. I know he is missing Maymon but people act like he is Michael Jordan or Rose. He is a 12-8 guy that we should be able to come close to making up that production he was giving us.

Dude, not trying to make excuses but injuries do cause set backs with teams. However as I mentioned there are some guys that need to step it up.

Might be a good idea to check a prospect's field goal percentage before making an offer. Gunners wanted.

Actually, going by possession stats which have been accurate in all SEC games we've played so far, we lose by 10 to 15 points.

Going to find out how meaningful the possession stats are.
Only team worse than us on defense in the SEC is SC. (last 3 games)
We're only slightly better than MState on offense.
And we play down to teams.
Wouldn't put this game in the bank just yet.
Making the NIT is like going to the Music city bowl, I thought we as a whole program have bigger goals that, dont we.

Some fans have higher expectations and goals. Some fans are OK with setting the bar incredibly low so average performance is viewed as over achieving.

Then the low bar setters go on the offensive and asault posters for being an idiot, clueless, and stupid. It's quite comical actually.

That and knowing when to call a time out. Fundamental my dear Watson?

Sadly, this is the correct answer.

You miss the Ole Miss game when we lost by 21 or so at home?
