Disappointing. I didn't get to watch the game because I had to work in Oklahoma. :/

This is why I was saying to expect NIT in the bubble thread so you don't get disappointed. Only reason we are/were on the bubble is the rest of the bubble is terrible.

This team has way overachieved so far this year. Will be happy with an NIT bid

UGA has played the three best in the league, two on the road (@UK and @USCjr). They gave all three a good test. The other two losses are less excusable, but overall they've only had one really bad loss (Oakland).

Sky isn't falling. UGA is mediocre. Unfortunately the Vols are in the same boat with a lot of young players figuring it out.

Lack of consistency? We do have other options and if he's simply not getting it done, play Turner. Go with the hot hand. Heaven knows I wish we had a reasonable substitute for Hubbs when he's a no show. I know JJ just wasn't ready to play and the thought of him wasting a year behind Hubbs didn't make sense, but man, there have been so many games this year where I wish he'd been available to see what he could do to help us win a couple more games.

Obviously Barnes had no plan B in case Frazier went off.

Just don't expect any lead to be safe with this bunch.
5th.

What's actually tired, though, is that a team can manage to blow so many games without fixing the issue!
Fixing the issue is simple. Another year to mature. This will be a really good team with a year experience under their belt. They'll learn how to close out games. As for now, enjoy the ride however far it takes us.

Actually Barnes was trying to find someone that could STOP Frazier.
Neither Bone, Turner or Phillips was up to the task.

It was another tough loss blowing yet ANOTHER double digit lead. The team is still playing better than many expected. The NIT should be the floor with this team based on how they've played this season. They still have a shot at the tourney.

If Bowden would have made just one of those threes, I think we would have won. Momentum would have shifted back to us
