The Hoop Dawgs

    Just saw my first hoops game ever at the steg. What a blast. We're above average in the transition game, but we get tight in our half court o. Edward's gets all the press, but Wheeler and Hammonds.. wow. I'm in.

    You should have seen the urnge filing out with their eyes looking down at the half!

    Get to know Coach Crean...this guy is a proven winner & we are witnessing the very early stages of him building this program into a perennial Powerhouse in the SEC. Fan support can not be overstated enough with bball. Kirby was in attendance (again), Pollock & Stafford along with 2000 screaming students. Let's all get behind this young team & make some noise in the SEC & beyond.

    Can we get Mike Griffith to give another prediction for the game?

    Worked out pretty good last time..

    Tom Crean is going to get fired sometime in the next 3 years...period. This is the night where I officially saw it for sure. Doesn't matter how well you recruit when you s.uck so badly as a coach like he does. And it's a shame as I think he struck gold on the class. He just can't coach. At all.

    Couldn't care less about youth or road stuff, this game shows that we're still a bottom 4 team in the SEC.

    Memphis win was fools gold. Penny Hardaway isn't much of a coach either.

    Tom Crean+Anthony Edwards=Ben Simmons and Johnny Jones.

    This is just plain ****.

  • ugadawg2005ugadawg2005 Posts: 36 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Wow, the word that begins with ug and ends with ly that means the opposite of pretty is banned.

  • DawgwiredDawgwired Posts: 2,400 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Tonight’s game is an embarrassing blow to Crean. No way we should look that bad

  • bull68dawgbull68dawg Posts: 809 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    That was painful to watch.

  • PlayHurtPlayHurt Posts: 999 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Embarrassing. One step up and three steps back.

    Terrible loss. No excuse.

  • AnotherDawgAnotherDawg Posts: 6,758 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Was interesting to watch. CTC seemed to make a decision to let his team bleed out on the court, rather than stop the bleeding and make adjustments to keep the game respectable. I have to think it was a calculated decision that he plans to make use of in the film room and on the practice floor.

  • SavageSavage Posts: 1,306 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    To suggest that CTC should be or will be fired soon is ludicrous. I’m not even going to fall back on the usual excuses cuz that was like watching hot garbage but 1 game does not equal a trend. Just need some Consistency, when firing on all cylinders this team can play with anybody in the country.

  • ugadawg2005ugadawg2005 Posts: 36 ✭✭✭ Junior

    He definitely shouldn't be fired. But you can't keep losing games like this and the Auburn game. And youth can't be the excuse, when college basketball's best players are Freshmen and you have supposedly the best player in the country (with Wiseman no longer playing and Ball not going to college).

  • greshamdiscogreshamdisco Posts: 2,674 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Crean has us in a place we should be happy to be. Our team has two return players from last year and is mostly freshman. Don’t overreact. He is an excellent coach. Last night was awful though, but it is an outlier.

    Dawgs need a big man bad. Loss of #25 hurts on court.
