I am new here. I see that DV gets critized for his opinions a lot. But you gotta see the same poor shooting and ball handling that he sees.
Is he overly critical? Probably. Voice his criticism too much? Maybe.
Do some on here have on blinders? Probably. Without bitching about it, I am concerned about the poor shooting. Missing layups and free throws. The poor ball handling. The early foul trouble taking our 2 best players out of the game. You gotta also see the improvement in Horston. She does not get out of control and run over people now as often. She still turns the ball over way too much. In 10 games she has 51 turnovers.
without Tamari Key in the game, we lost to Stanford. During the time Key was in the game against Stanford, I think we were plus on scoring when she was in the game. I cannot find that stat. I saw it on live stats near the end of the game.

We are fortunate not to have 3 losses, and the fact that we don’t is also to be credited to Horston, without her 4th quarter play, we lose a couple games (Texas, USF)
I said all this to point out that some on here could be less critical, some could quit ignoring and glossing over the poor play. Give credit where credit is due, at the same time, quit thinking that because they wear the orange that they can do no wrong.

Pathetic.

You’re right about one thing though: you’re new here.

There will be absolutely zero centered opinions at this here social site. You must pick a side, it’s that simple. :cool:!
…welcome.

New….. or just Darth or a Holly lover 🤷‍♂️

Go watch some games under Holly and then come back and convince us that we have a bad offense ! Most here we’re supporting the lady Vols under Pat ….. And most are coaches in a previous life . So basketball knowledge on this forum is not missing nor forgotten.

The nega Vols are either other team lovers or Holly lovers , or just hate Kelly, or just mad at the world in general . They NEVER HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY ABOUT THE COACH , team , players, or life in general ? Their sole purpose in life is to get someone to comment on their posts so they can live to fight another day ! They spend every waking moment thinking about what mean and nasty thing can I write to upset someone else or make a recruit or their parents question sending their child to such a vile place .
So if you are truly a new poster ? Then welcome to this forum . But if you think that we don’t know what bad basketball looks like …….
I would ask you to think about your comments and whenever possible, try and keep things in a positive vein. There are recruits and parents who read this information trying to decide if their child should come to UT ! Just Saying

I you're new here then you know very little about the posters and their tolerance for irrationally critical posts like like those of Barf_Vol. Constructive criticism is accepted in good faith by almost all posters here. Destructive criticism is not welcome by many of us.

I will check back in occasionally to see if you think we have had a good or bad game. I was never a Holly supporter, but was all for the hiring of Kelly. If I have something negative to say about a player, like above about Jordan, I will also have something positive to say, like above.
Anyone that wants to disagree can, but it’s an ******* that jumps on a new poster just because they are new..and that is evidently a fairly regular occurrence on this board. I don’t imagine I will be around long before being banned for calling out some regulars..but I DGAF.

Excuse someone for having a different opinion.
I am also right about what part you can kiss..
Careful showing up and making statement like that. Most of us have been here for years. Through thick and thin. I frequently make posts questioning our play and process. I also post a lot of positive content.

I’ve been active on this site for 10 years under two profiles. Lost my previous login. In that time I have not once seen Darth make a positive post about the program, our players or coaches. He tends to post negative crap in recruiting threads which is a huge no no on the site. As other mentioned, parents and players read this board. Having a fan base is a blessing and curse. His negativity does make an impact. We don’t need any “new” posters giving credence that.

Stay in your lane.

Disappointing rhetoric and uninformed. When you submit your opinion, people here will agree or disagree or just not care. If you do not welcome discussions, you should reconsider posting. Part of your post clearly targeted some posters. Don't say that was unintentional

If you want to use the forum as your personal opinion outlet, be my guest. It's what the forum is all about. Just remember, you will decide whether you want to stay or not and if your upset that your fishing landed an unexpected catch, you probably won't last long here. Disappointing because we can use rational heads here and I thought your post started out well...just crashed at the end. Oh well.

Some of the haters of the lady Vols are well known on this forum ! So they will just get a new e-mail and change their avatar and back in business to creat more animosity on the forum ?
Is that you IVY ? DGAF is a tell that you are back ? 🤔. You mentioned getting kick off the forum ….. so we know where you are coming from ! You can prove me wrong or just be you ?

Some of the haters hide their past post so no one can remind them of a bad comment or mistake ….. so that means you are not Darth because that’s what they do ! As for being new and jumping on …. I was just trying to be somewhat positive and give you the benefit of the doubt ! But you don’t have to leave as Darth has been spewing his hate for our coach , the players , and everything this program does! And they have been doing this bully pulpit for over ten years . So as I said before : welcome and comment as you please but understand most here support our players and want nothing but good things in their lives …. Even if their human nature and basketball skills might have some flaws ? As another poster said : you have to choose a side . I think being on the fence is ok too! Again welcome

You may want to read a bit more before posting because you seem condensing. I've offered critiques many times before and not everyone agreed but no one was offended. That's because they know I care, I'm on the players' side, and I want what's best for them. That said, harping over and over about stuff that anyone with 2 eyes can see is going to wear out your welcome.

I am still relatively new here as well though active since I joined. I don't necessarily disagree with most of your comments. If fact, I wish there could be more room for people to make honest critiques without immediate response that apparently want to only focus on the positive. That said, entering this or any passionate forum is like being a new in-law to the extended family meal. As a fellow newbie, we don't know the history and context even it if looks totally dysfunctional. So, I imagine your observation that it is "pathetic" with such a small sampling likely got some folks on the defensive. I have seen a few posts that DV made that I thought were fairly on the mark, but totally agree with the majority that he (? - for real, I don't know) seems overly invested in dramatizing the negative with nary a positive comment. It is clear he enjoys stirring the pot. I do think that this dynamic hampers the ability to have more well rounded discussion that include both negative and positive points, though I do see a few of these. Otherwise, it is a wonderful forum for LV fans as well as fans of women's basketball. I have check it every day since joining.

It’s a lot of fun around here in my opinion. Have loved this site and love having a place we can convene and discuss.

Thank you for the guiding post for our new friend. Best to watch and listen before new posters wade into the debate pool and start casting judgements on posters. When I first joined I mostly lurked for almost 2 years. Took me 5 years before I felt like I could post in recruiting threads.

Those used to be moderated more closely from what I recall though. There were a few inside posters who would share very good information and they did not like those threads getting muddled up. During the Holly tenure those posts mostly petered out and now we get almost no insider information.

DeerPark or someone else will drop us a pearl now and then.
