Flex Offense

Please Bruce, this offense is terrible. We work the ball way to hard for crappy perimeter shots. Rick Byrd has a coaching clinic soon. Please attend.

seriously.... the FLEX is the worst offense ever created. no rhythm... no flow... it doesn't threatened the defense except for that stupid baseline back screen which everyone knows is coming.... and when it does work... we miss the wide open cutter cuz the guys are so hypnotized tossing it back and forth.

really... the FLEX is really bad... it's a gimmic offense u run methodically when you don't have good athletes and you want to slow the game down. it's something a mediocre teams runs to try and hang with an athletic up tempo team. i guess coach pearl thinks it fits our style perfectly.... after all.... it makes perfect sense to put your tallest, biggest guy 35 feet from the basket... handling the basketball.

we should run a standard motion type offense.... pass a screen away... enter the ball in the freekin wing... look inside... have guys coming off post screens and wing screens... making reads to curl, fade, or back cut.... have post players screening for each other when guards can't get them the ball from the wing. they should learn how to freeking play basketball and not run some stupid pattern offense. seriously the FLEX is a freekin joke.

I actually agree with this kinda (subtract all the emotion). Tennessee always leads the SEC or is near the top when in scoring offense. If we are averaging 80+ a game then I don't see the big deal. The only issue yesterday was turnovers.

The flex isn't flashy, but the numbers don't lie.

Sorry, I meant to quote SmokeyBlueTick

Not that I am a EXPERT

I think CBP probably knows what will work for the kids he recruits, I agree the flex always looks herky jerky when they run it. UT true game is to press, make steals and push the ball. Give Purdue credit, they where rank 6th. in the nation

That is OK. Bruce can survive without your support.

Why does it always have to be like this?

It's not about supporting or not supporting the coach. Everybody gets the great success that Pearl has achieved, but you can't watch more than about 5 minutes of Tennessee basketball without coming to the conclusion that we struggle to get consistent good looks in in half court sets.

I only watched the second half last night, but I saw very, very little of the flex. If you discard a couple of random attempted screens on the blocks, I can count the times we cycled through that offense on no fingers.
